Introduction:
Hello everyone, here is yet another RPG maker game that I'm currently working on! :) This game is planned to be a commercial release, so I'm going to need all the feedback I can get to produce the most quality product for everyone to enjoy.! ^_^


It is the year 212 AXW: the Great War that ravaged the galaxy of Xerxes has given way to contentious peace. One of the legendary heroes of the war, Arcturo Rave, now presides over Xerxes as the High King. His influence, though considerable, is barely containing a galaxy divided.

Much of the conflict stems from two age-old adversaries: the humanoid Aryans of House Rave in Sector 4, and the lizard-like Draconians in Sector 1. To defuse the tension, Draconian Count Vorakia Estuuban wishes to merge two of the most influential houses from Sector 1 and Sector 4 through the marriage of Princess Ellemine Rave (daughter of the High King) and Prince Chad Zephyr (son of Lord Falric Zephyr). The High King approves of this union between the Aryans of House Rave in Sector 4 and the Humans of House Zephyr in Sector 1. However, the Count may have an agenda of his own for this marriage, and may not have the best interest of the galaxy in mind. Could House Zephyr simply be a puppet of the Draconian Count in this union?


Klein Cryoz, the personal bodyguard of Princess Ellemine Rave, finds himself caught up in a twist of unfavorable events. Journey into the galaxy of Xerxes and enter Klein's life, as he finds himself caught up in a galactic feud. Along the way, the fragments of his long-forgotten dark past surface, piece by piece. Will he be able to do his duty, withstand the pressure of a brewing war, all the while having his past haunt him?



Humans
Humans are an ever-evolving species. For a race that started from primitive humans with apelike features, they have now drastically evolved. It was a great wonder throughout all of Xerxes that the Humans were able to evolve themselves over the years. They now have symmetrical bodily proportions with great features. The Humans' intellectual capacity has improved over the years as well. Now, only time will tell what the Humans are going to be like in the far future.


Aryans
Aryans are the inhabitants of Sector 4. They have humanoid features and are identified for their hair-color with hues that range from sapphire blue to emerald green. Aryan's source of food is the natural vegetation of Erra and Orion. Some Aryans are born with psychic powers. They are called “Ciphers”. Some Aryans on the other hand aren't born with psychic powers. Non-cipher Aryans are given the opportunity to study at the Granian Research Facility of Sector 2 or to join the Aryan Vanguard. This happens when they reach 25. In Aryan tradition, it is said that the rightful heir to the throne must always be a child born as a Cipher. If a King's first born is not a Cipher, but his second is, then the second child shall be chosen, regardless of age and gender. Aryan Royalty is also very strict at keeping their royal children's identity a secret from the Galaxy. This is only until they are engaged and married.


Draconians
The Draconians have reptilian features. They have hard scales and strong bodies. Their kin are very competitive when it comes to power and authority. They have access to the most advanced technologies up to date, thanks to the help of the Grays at the Granian Research Facility in Sector 2. It was rumored that the Draconians eat human babies as food, but was long debunked by Count Vorakia Estuuban himself. The count specifically mentioned that they would never betray their own people, Draconians and Humans alike. What is known for now is that the Draconians only eat raw animal meat for food.


Granians (Grays)
Granians are extremely telepathic beings. They communicate with others using their minds. They are also very intellectual. It has been a mystery that they are able to work together in perfect unison for their advancements. Granians work with one mind and are able to achieve much technological advancement. They have skins with hues ranging from pale white to gray. They have huge oval shaped eyes and their bodies are small and frail.


Gulanians (Greens)
The Gulanians, unlike the Granians, are not telepathic beings. They speak with their tongues like most beings in the Galaxy do. They are more focused on excavations, archeology and manual labor. This makes them the perfect partner for the Granians. Gulanians have the same physical features as the Granians with their small, frail bodies and huge oval shaped eyes. The only difference is that their skin is green.


Kunians
Kunians are humanoid beings with cat-like features. They have very agile bodies and strong senses. The Kunians are rich in culture and are very spiritual beings. The Kunians are the only ones preserving the practice of "Calline" in all of Sector 3. Calline is a tradition among the Kuni where an individual reaching the age of 20 is given the chance to take a soul-searching journey alone around the galaxy and bring honor to their kind.


Farians
The Farians are humanoid beings that are identified for their purple skin and hair color that have hues ranging from purple to pink. Most Farians are involved with occultism and witchcraft. They are infamous for the usage of hexes, curses and charms that are driven by criminal intentions. Still, not all Farians are involved with criminal intentions. The occult practices, however, have long been a cultural stigma on their species. Many Farians work underground in Kardel to create devastating hexes and curses with malicious purposes.


Somaki
The Somaki is an enigmatic race with unknown origins; they're usually seen wearing suits of armor that cover their faces. Their purpose in this sector is unknown. Their body-shape is humanoid in nature and is really muscular. They are usually found lurking in underground areas of the planets in Sector 3. Though there hasn’t been any news of the Somaki causing trouble as of late, still, the people of Sector 3 are very cautious of their presence.



Name: Klein Cryoz
Age: 20
Race: Aryan
Zodiac: Scorpio
- The Main Protagonist of the story. Klein is a Cipher, 20 years of age. He has left behind his dark past when the High King of Xerxes took him in as part of the Cipher’s Kinetic Association (CKA) of House Rave and assigned him as the Princess’ personal body-guard. He is calm, deep and stoic.


Name: Ellemine Rave
Age: 21
Race: Aryan
Zodiac: Virgo
– Princess of House Rave and daughter of the High King. Ellemine is an empath who has suffered greatly because of her powers. She is able to absorb the feelings of everyone around her, be it, joy, pain, sorrow and anger. All of these have made her life difficult and have left her feeling overwhelmed for so many times already. Ellemine, Instead of her non-cipher elder brother, Prince Eryn Rave, was chosen as heir to House Rave, for, In Aryan tradition, the Royal child who possesses psychic powers must always be the chosen heir, despite of their age and gender. She is very close to her mother, Queen Lumina Rave. Ellemine is humble and meek, but wise and strong.


Name: Chad Zephyr
Age: 19
Race: Human
Zodiac: Pisces
- Prince of House Zephyr and son of the well renowned couple of Sector 1, Lord Falric and Lady Marselva Zephyr. As a college freshman and a popular athlete, life has been going well for him, until he was taken off guard by his parents’ decision to get him engaged with an Aryan Princess. Chad wasn’t really into any kinds of relationship during the time, however, when he met Princess Ellemine for the first time, his heart strings were plucked as an invisible cord of emotional and spiritual connection has formed between the two of them. Chad has been professionally trained in sword-fighting since childhood; this makes him an excellent fighter. He's charismatic, athletic and laid-back.


Name: Sola Brightling
Age: 20
Race: Kunian
Zodiac: Sagittarius
- A teen who is currently on her “Calline”. Calline is a practice among the Kuni where an individual reaching the age of 20 is sent out on a journey around the Galaxy to find him/herself, creating his/her destiny and bringing honor to their people. This journey usually awakens fear and anxiety on a Kunian, but Sola was very excited for this journey. As the adoptive child of Lady Tajuma Hulei, governor of Sector 3, she was always expected to be as reserved and well-behaved as they wanted her to be. Now, the Calline is the only thing that can free her adventurous spirit. She's childish but very cunning.


Name: Veronica Wale
Age: 27
Race: Farian
Zodiac: Capricorn
- Owner of “Wale’s Resto Bar” located in planet Kardel, Sector 3. Veronica lives up to the Farian stereotype of being heavily involved in black magic such as hexes and curses. Veronica is notorious for using spells to enhance her charms and allure on her costumers, making them come back to her resto bar again and again. Veronica’s life changed directions when the leader of the “Star Raiders” fell in love with her. The leader of this pirate group wishes to kidnap her and force her into marrying him. She's very charming, witty and humorous.


Name: Zazir S-89
Age: 8
Race: Half Draconian and Gray
Zodiac: Gemini
- Zazir is the 89th Hybrid experiment of the Niredian Scientists in Sector 1. He is a mixture of both Draconian and Gray DNA. Zazir was left to rot in the barren planet of Jargon in Sector 2, for, he was deemed a failed experiment by the Niredian scientists. Zazir, however, is not exactly a failure himself. He possesses the strong physical capabilities of a Draconian and the telepathic powers of a Gray. He was saved from this predicament when he met Klein and Ellemine. Zazir is naïve and curious, but brave and loyal.

Hi guys, just wanted to share some progress with my game. xDD

I was thinking about adding some sort of horror parts in the game where Klein has to wander around an abandoned facility. :) Seeing as the game's going to be sci-fi, I guess it is only right to balance out the numbers between peaceful paradise planets and creepy alien-infested planets. :D

Here are some screenshots of what I've done so far:





Stay tuned, cause I'll be posting a playable boss battle for this dungeon soon, as submission to the RPG maker 28th birthday event. :)

I also have a map screenshot here as a form of submission to the RPG maker 28th birthday event. xD


That would be all for now! ^_^

Hey, I decided to give a try. And here are some of my cents
  • The intro sure took damn long. Is there any way to skip it? Not like it's bad, you've done it amazing. It just if I already seen that in case I want to replay, no option to skip?
  • And it finally brought me to the first battle. But since I want to know everything first like this and that skill do what, I spend my time reading the description, didn't realize that the ATB is not passive. So while I'm doing it, the A.I foes keep attacking me that the princess went down
  • In the next scene where the princess is supposed to battle alone, and I haven't get my recovery from the green orb, the game sent me to Game Over screen, since maybe because the princess is knocked out in previous battle?
  • I'm not sure how you gonna do this, but isn't it better if an enemy has a visible ATB bar, so I could know when they're going to attack? or I'm missing something? Granted I didn't read the battle instruction, so idk if I'm missing it

Hi @TheoAllen ! Thanks for your feedback!!

- Hmm, regarding the intro, I'll see if I can make it work faster (The scrolling parts, anyway.)
- Oh, right! The ATB is supposed to be fast paced and real time xD So I guess that's why. I guess this part is where preference comes to play, I know that some people would love to take their time reading the skill descriptions in battle. I'll do my best to provide an option to disable the real-time atb. (But in will require deep scripting experience that I have no knowledge of, sadly :(( )
- My bad!! Thanks for pointing that out, I should've included a party recover right after every battle in the test. x( I'll keep this in mind for the update. :)
- Now this is the hard part x(( I'm not sure if Mog Hunter's atb has an option that allows the player to see the atb bar of enemies. But I'll look into it further and hopefully, I'll find something. ^^

Thank you so much for taking the time to play the demo, TheoAllen! And thanks for your feedback! I really appreciate it so. :)

UPDATE!

Hello guys! You may now download the new version of the demo which includes the following changes:

- New battle system: Battle Symphony + CATB by Yami and Battle engine by Yanfly (Good bye, Tankentai SBS :( )
Reasons: While the tankentai sbs of the demo combined the Mog-hunter's atb looked really amazing (to me, at least), it has lots of incompatibility issues that is just too much of a risk in making the game buggy and crash-y. So I had to let it go, even if it hurts. :( But, thankfully, there were talented scripters that I found who have created wonderful battle systems that are able to duplicate the side-view active time battle system that I wanted for the game. They may be simple, but they're very clean and there was a bug fix patch released for the system that is done by DoubleX. So I'll stick with this for now, and hopefully, there won't be any more serious incompatibility issues. :)

- New simpler and cleaner menu as well as some smooth improvements from "Maker Systems".

- Enhanced game camera work from "Maker Systems" for a smoother and immersive experience when exploring the galaxy of Xerxes.

- A few dialogue changes that includes rephrasings and typo fixes.

- Battle system now shows enemy's atb gauge.

- The ATB is no longer real-time, which means that you may now take your time selecting your decisions in battle without the risk of the enemy wrecking havoc on you.

- Intro scroll sequences have been made a lot faster to avoid unnecessary delays.

And that's all of the changes for this version of the demo. (As far as I can remember.) I would also like to thank @TheoAllen , for, most of the game-play changes were based off his feedback and suggestions. ^_^

Thank you so much @Thomas Smith ! xDD I got inspired by your game's cool art and logos to do this. :)
I like Cool Text as well :kaoluv:
Fun fact: When I was making my game, I looked at all the other games under development or completed games and almost all of them had animated titles :kaoback: and I thought, "okay, I don't have one... :kaosigh: Now I know I need one as well." Animated title scripts looked tricky to me but I decided to just try it! :kaopride: And it came out well! :kaojoy:

Hello guys!! I've started learning spriting and will create some animated battler sprites for the characters of Rave Heart. ^_^

I'll have an updated demo soon where characters will no longer be using their walking sprite during battles. :)

Here's what I have so far:


If you wish to give some feedback or discuss the sprites, you can post them on my official newbie spriting thread:
https://forums.rpgmakerweb.com/index.php?threads/starmage-sprites.91907/

Just wanted to say I've been playing the demo for a bit and so far, I'm liking the art style and story! I don't know why, but I've always found Chad so amusing, besides his name (And there's nothing wrong with that! He's actually my favorite besides Elle).

I'm a sci-fi rpg enthusiast myself and I've always wondered about the lack of those kinds of games lately. Either way, you're doing us a favor haha.

Anyway, in regards to the sprites on your recent post, I'm interested on seeing them in action. If that happens, I'd be more than happy to give you some feedback as a pixel artist/spriter.

That said, time to give the updated demo a try (And looking forward for the next one!)

Jumping and gravitation 0.1 build - RPG Maker MV
It's ironic, but one of the many hilarious things done with Shia's Just Do It speech was to make a hype song, and....I know what it is.....but I still get inspired by it! I'm like..."Yes I can!!"
That moment when you realize you lost time frankenstiening a sprite together, only to realize it already exited.
My first game is going to have the main character more or less create monsters as his party members.

Thanks to the plugin creators still producing content for MV, I might be able to give each of the monster members a personalized range of tactics during combat. I liked how the devs made it like that in FF6.
