MY FRIENDS SYNOPSIS Game execution Issues? Try Firefox! This tiny game is something like a tiny interactive horror story. We meet Ryan who stayed home all day and we learn why. IMAGES/SCREENSHOTS Spoiler DOWNLOAD LINK Link updated: https://www.dropbox.com/s/64hqj1wcf43wx7e/MyFriends.zip?dl=0 SOME MORE INFORMATION: Spoiler The game was created for the One Map Game Challenge. Genral restrictions were: You can only use 1 map.

Allowed engine: RPG Maker 2k/2k3/XP/VX/VX Ace/MV I found that a little softcore for my taste so here are the restrictions I followed: I shall use: 1 Event 1 Variable 1 tileset 1 picture file on the tileset 1 actor 1 class 1 music piece (and split in two parts) 1 sound FX I shall set the project to have 1 but will never use: 1 item 1 state 1 animation 1 type (for all types) 1 skills 1 enemies 1 weapons 1 armour 1 enemies 1 troops I shall use NO: Switches. CREDITS: Spoiler "My friends" A game by Dreadshadowfor the "One Map Game Challenge" Event of the official RPG Maker forum. Creeated using RPG Maker MV. [Copyright](C) Degica, Co. LTD Graphics: For the game, a parallax map was made, using tiles, and actor graphics (doors). A single actor movemet graphic, with a facesetalong with a fonts file were also used, all from these two DLCs: POP! Slasher Forest POP! Horror City [Copyright](C) Degica, Co. LTD Resource creators: Vexed Enigma Custom Icons are by Avery, a beloved member of the official RPG Maker forum. Title Screen picture by Dreadshadow. Extra Plugins: TDDP_FluidTimestep by Tor Damian Design (a.k.a. Galenmereth) Thanks because using Timer wouldn't be an option without this plugin, since it fixes any occuring glitches. Sound FX: Initial RPG Maker MV content. Music: By Dreadshadow [Copyright](C) 2018 I doubt that anyone would like to use any of the ambient pieces I made for this game. It is one project with two instruments play, then two variations with solo instruments. I mean it took me literally 10 minutes to make them and convert them to ogg. In case though you wanna use any of them, ask me first. You can find me here! Some personal comments on the Event: Spoiler It is fantastic how limitations can teach you what is possible, by using just simple tools. I mean I got to the end of this and said "Hey look I can make it even more minimal and it will still be nice!" Not to mention that this game can start as exactly this, and build upon it by adding a few stuff, to make a decent length game. The challenge needed a map. Well the game MUST have 1 map to run anyway. I could had left that map blank (literally) and just add pictures and choices. According to choices we could work around with the one variable I used, using different values (powers of 2), thus a visual novel game could be also possible, making the one Actor and the grid useless too! On the Event I used 4 Event Pages. Those Pages could become just a single Event Page by nesting Conditional Branches, but since that was a project to be made to have fun, I was just too lazy to turn it into an one Event Page event. Great Event, fantastic idea! Feedback will be highly appreciated.
