    Hi guys!! Here's another update on the demo for Rave Heart!

    Changes:

    - Most arena enemies have been dramatically nerfed.

    - Fixed some more tile-set bugs that I missed at some comfort rooms.

    - Fixed a bug where the shuttle will sometimes appear as a car in one of the maps in the demo.

    - Fixed an unpassable tile found at Dorado.

    - A few more story continuation from previous version.

    Also, some screeny for you guys:

    Poor Veronica, forced to marry the crazy Star-Raiders' leader. Veronica has no say in this cause she was intentionally muted. xD (And yes, that's a wedding in a dance club.)

    Can't believe I'm saying this but you're updating your game too fast! It hasn't been 1 months since the 4.0 update, slow down so we don't have to download a brand new game every 5 seconds. About the game itself, great premise, cool characters, but I'm not feeling them. They lack a certain "je ne sais quoi"to make them feel more human; unique.

    It was a fun ride. I like Klein's character, and the battles are really quite well balanced so far.
    Melee for robot-type, and telekinesis attack for creatures blend so good into the fight. I mean,
    you need to learn the basic fundamental and apply them in the fight or the characters might suffer.
    My poor Klein has 1/4 HP left on the second fight.XD The maps also are pretty neat! I love it!

    Hi all! I know I've been gone and haven't been posting some news about my development of this game as of late! But no worries, I do not intend to stop! ^_^

    I was busy with some real life stuff, and I'm also currently working on a collab project with @BerryB on the RMN Twisted Fairy Tale Event here: https://rpgmaker.net/events/halloween18/ . I'm also very excited to share with you guys this collab project soon as we wil be releasing the game either this Oct. 29 or 30. :) Then I can start working on Rave Heart once again. xD :)

    Rave Heart is currently on private beta test phase, and I have wonderful and trusted people playing the private beta right now. :) If you wish to give me the honor of being one of my private beta testers, please do not hesitate to ask! ^_^ With that said, I will no longer be uploading Public demos for download. :)

    For now, here's a little screenie sneak peak of what's to come! XD

    I love your story and character designs/background. Scifi is one of my favorites genres and I like all the different alien races that are blended in this. Looking forward to playing the demo! :)

    Liking the look of this a lot, I very rarely see sci-fi RPG Maker games I like but I'm really into what you've done here. If I was to suggest one thing, maybe change the name of the Aryans? As a word used in our real world it's loaded with history and very specific connotations and none of them are good.

    @JAD94 - Thank you so much for the kind words! ^_^ I'm glad you liked the alien races! I love sci-fi too! I hope you'll enjoy the demo! XD :)

    @onipunk - Hi onipunk! Thank you so much for checking out the game and for your support! ^_^ I also appreciate you sharing your concerns regarding the usage of the term "Aryan". :) It's already been discussed quite a lot already in the discord servers, and you weren't the first who shared concern regarding the term's usage of this game. But this will be helpful, as this gives me the opportunity to address this concern on this thread, should other people share the same concern as you. :D With that said, I decided to keep the term for reasons I'll reveal below. :)

    I'll quote/copy-pasta my response here from another concerned citizen back in RMN if you do not mind! ^_^ :)

    Thanks so much for bringing that up! As this gives me an opportunity to answer this concern here in my page for other people who are curious with the usage of the term. In the very decision that I used the term "Aryan", I actually was referencing the real life alien species "Pleiadians" Since their alternate name was also "Aryan" as seen here:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_alleged_extraterrestrial_beings

    I drew inspiration from the Pleiadians as an alien race for their peaceful and loving nature, as well as their very spiritual and technologically advanced traits.

    It was only until this was heavily discusses on the Discord servers, when one of the members (Drass) kindly notified me of the negative connotations of the term. I was heavily shocked, since I never knew that until then. X( After heavy research and discussions with the members of discord, I came to a final decision, that I will continue using the term "Aryan".

    My reasoning was:

    1. I do not want to give in to the Nazis reality that they own the term or that they think it is the perfect race that humans should become.

    2. The Nazis no longer have power over anyone in this world, for, they are long gone and their horrors buried with them.

    3. I wish to recover the honor of the term, wherein it was used as an alternate term for the "Pleiadians", an alien race that was far from the evil Nazis in the first place. I read a lot of books about the alien races when I was a child, this is why it is a heavy influence on me and the development of this game.


    In the end, I will still take part of my responsibility in making a disclaimer that no terms are used as a means of offending nor looking down on anyone of a specific group or ethnicity. :)

    In addition with that, the word "Aryan" also had indo-iranian origins, which was far from the evil movement of the Nazis. ;)

    Hope this helps clear things up, onipunk! :D Thanks so much once again! ^_^

    Whoa, whoa, whoa....

    You will be making a commercial game? And it looks this fabulous? I am also loving the sci-fi setting and the list of races, it seems very enriched. When I get the time, I'm going to have to play the demo! ^^
