Hey everyone, so I decided to release a demo of my game to get some feedback. I hope I'm in the right forum, as I do think this is still an early project. I have no skill in digital arts, so I have used mainly RTP graphics and music, with a few exceptions. So, please don't judge the art style, or the mapping, as I hope this will get redone in the future, if I can ever afford an artist, or maybe one will like the game and want to join my team? *hint hint* In any case, the feedback I'm looking for is the usual bugs, spelling errors, but mostly the story. I know it's only a small demo, so you won't really get the whole story yet, but I want to know if you guys think it's an interesting story and you would like to know more, or it's not really that good and I should probably try something else. So any criticism or bug and spelling reports are appreciated. Also, if you see something I forgot to Credit someone for, please let me know! Thank you for your time! WARNING!!! This game features disturbing scenes which involve domestic violence, child abuse, and sexual content is inferred at one or more points. If you are a minor, do not play this game without your parents consent. MinaOni STORY Spoiler The continent of Viseria is ruled by a Theocratic Monarchy, that believes in the teachings of LuzJusta, it's main religion. The religion of LuzJusta teaches that all life comes from the Goddess of Light. The Goddess desired for company, and this desire created a rift in the Light, giving rise to Darkness. From the Essence of Light she extracted Water and Wind, and from the Essence of Darkness, Fire and Earth. LuzJusta believes that while not dangerous themselves, the Elements of Darkness represent the primal, the world of Matter. And the Elements of Light represent knowledge and the world of the Spirit. Some living beings have a genetic makeup which allows them to channel the elements. These people or creatures are called Adepts. Adepts can only control one of the Elements, that which they have been born with the genetics for. As for the Essences themselves, throughout history there have only been six people able to channel the Essence of Light. They are known as the Light Sages. It is said that a Seventh Sage would bring untold peace unto the world. There have also been Dark Sages, but little is known of the ancient religion that worships the Dark Essence. Known as TenebraSano, the ancient religion was all but extinguished over 400 years ago, when it lurked out of the darkness and tried to take the kingdom from the hands of the Fifth Sage of Light. There are rumors that they still exist, and will one day rise again against the empire of light.

GamePlay Spoiler The Game features a CTB battle system with Three Rows and up to six characters on the battlefield. Each Row has it's advantages and disadvantages depending on your class, skill and/or weapon. While this is not very well developed yet, my plan is to have a battle system that will require planning and strategy , depending on what weapons you have equipped, which skills you use, and what row you are on. The world map is not very developed yet, but I do plan on adding exploration elements, such as dungeons and secret places and treasures. There are already a few puzzles and hidden treasures on some maps, and I plan on adding more and different types of puzzles. Try and find all the hidden weapons, items and gold I have already put on the game!
