When I was done playing Misao, The Mad Father and The Witch's House, I know I just have


to make a horror RPG. They're very soulful yet so exciting and thrilling. I know I dont have any experiences


with any RPG game productions, but I can assure you that I'll give my all to this project. So If you're interested


to join the project, we're still open for recruitment (even those who were already taken could still be filled in even if it is above it's limit).


 


WE'RE ALSO PLANNING IN INCORPORATING SOME MATURE ELEMENTS IN THE GAME


WHICH MAY OR MAY NOT INCLUDE: BLOOD, SEX, ON-SCREEN DEATHS AND ETC.


 


THIS IS STILL TO BE DECIDED AND MAY OR MAY NOT BE INCORPORATED.
====================================================================================================================




The Story.png
 

Spoiler



Rosalie's father died. Rosalie, her pet and Esmee moves into Nephi, a peaceful and happy town just across the country. They moved into a house in the middle of the forest. Rosalie is sick however with a heart disease and has poor vision so she has her glasses. Esmee is an environmentalist and chose their house because it was the closest house near the forest where she'd have her studies would focus in. But one night, she didnt came home. Rosalie thought her mom would only be going home late but a the middle of the night she heard a loud knock on the door. And a voice, screaming for help.



MORE PARTS OF THE STORY WILL BE REVEALED AS YOU GET RECRUITED. 



Her pet, heart disease and poor vision will play a huge part in the gameplay (yet they are subject to change) and will be essential in the whole experience. The game is like a visual novel yet an RPG. Some parts are told heavily by events.

The Recruitment.png


So for the second time around, I'm here to recruit for this game. Most of the past recruited
members were no longer attached (They still haven't replied but are still welcome to come



back) and so, here are the people that we're in need of:


 


 


NEEDED


SCRIPTER/s ----------------------------- 1 Spot/s Left


Eventer/s------------------------------------- 2 Spot/s Left


Mapper -------------------------------------- 2 Spot/s Left


CHARACTER DESIGNER / AN ARTIST --------------------------------------- 2 Spot/s left (AtlasRose, xNEpx)


Spriter -------------------------------------------------------------- 2 Spot's left


Writer ---------------------------------------- 2 Spot/s Left


Composer ----------------------------------------1 Spot/s Left (Jay_Onas)


 


 


DESCRIPTION


 


The Writer


He/ She will be incharge of making the gameplay (with me supervising and helping).
Will help add the horror and suspense to the gameplay and story.
 Will help on


developing character development and story progression. 


 


 


The Scripter


They will create/modify/add scripts to the game. The game (as of now) already had


the basic scripts that will be needed in the game. Your main role is to help us implement 


the stated ideas for gameplay and other important things.


 


 


The Mapper & The Eventer


They will create the setting for the game's adventure and some cutscenes which will play


a huge role in the game. This game is to be mapped using the parallax technique (mostly)


and the events are kinda heavy. Many cutscenes are included.


 


The Composer


I consider the music for this game one of it's most important pillar and the music will


bring the emotion the writers want to bring and will create the BGMs and the Theme Songs


to be used in the game.


 



Character Designer


We'll be needing this one to create or modify characters (an XP styled sprite) based on the 


descriptions we have in mind. You could also suggest and will be one of the people


who will be incharge of the over-all look of the characters, both sprite and face set.


 


 


Some "recruited" members were removed (temporarily) due to inactivity. But may still rejoin by contacting me.


 


====================================================================================================================



WHAT I CAN DO TO RETURN THE FAVOR


Well, if you also have a game to be developed, I may help in writing or 


any concept art (from my friend, if that counts). Also, if you'd accept a help


in editing a video or producing one, I've made a couple of music videos


and videos uploaded in YouTube (You may ask me the link to the videos). 


Also, a spot in the credit role will be given to you!


 


Way of Communication


We'll communicate through Slack or here at the forum through a series


of messages or any other options you'd like. The files will be sent through dropbox.


So, be sure to have an account at dropbox. 


 


The Engine


The game will use RMVX Ace.
(We've started production on this engine but is planned to be redone in MV


for release on other platforms)


 


Notes


The names of the characters are still in development and so with their look and all.


The names are subjected for change. The plot was also changed but still


incorporates some of the stated plot here.


 


Updated plot will not be posted to avoid of being copied.


If you have some questions, you may email me at: marlofielph@gmail.com.

Spoiler



Update (12/4/14)
I was surprised by the people who were interested! I decreased the task force
for this project for this will be my first project, thanks to an advice from a friend.

Update (12/7/14)
Game writing has started. Recruitment still ongoing. To those who are interested,
please don't be shy and PM me or post to this page. :)

Update (12/11/14)
VX Ace purchased(Steam), first story meeting had commenced. Recruitment still needed.

Update (12/18/14)


Story cuts. Lots of them. 

Update (12/19/14)


Graphic & script collection for the project had commenced. We've added 2 new spots


for "Horror Consultant" and "Logo/Title Screen Artist".

Update (12/25/14)


Compilation of tilesets had commenced and is already halfway done. Maps conceptualization
had been done. We're still in need of a spriter because weegeerunner still hasn't replied


to my PM.


 


Update (12/31/14)
Major story changes. Mainly with the characters. One of them is killed (by me, bwahahahahaha) 
which might make the story more convincing and better. My laptop broke days ago but 


had a  backup of the game files over at dropbox and my flash drive and hard drive.


 


Update (1/8/2015)
Story writing continuation after some break. First script almost done (Great work Serenity!)


We're still in need of a writer. Abagail has been moved to Mapper position with Reno385.


WE'RE STILL IN NEED OF A WRITER AND SPRITER.


 


Update (3/2/2016)


After sometime, this game is planned to be revived and translated into a short game. 


Production is planned to be restarted and major changes were added to the story.


 


Update (3/2/2016) - 8 hours later


Most of the team back then accepted to return and so far, I'm still planning


on how to make the communication work, what time and all. But I think


this is going much better than what happened before. Wish us luck.


 


Update (3/3/2016)


The story has been planned out thoroughly. The backstory has been covered with detail


and the antagonist is working. I'm gonna be focusing on compiling the resources


then do database and gonna let the writers write the gameplay. I'm still looking for a composer


though. The concept art for the characters are still undergoing some polish and are still


being made. Hope to get this one finished before April ends. 


 


Update (3/4/2016)


I have started trying out mapping ideas and have started compiling tilesets


and sadly had to make the characters (I'm not an artist) by salvaging (that doesn't sound good) or compiling


other good stuff from the characters already present here. 


 


Update (3/8/2016)


It's kinda been a while (4 days) and I've made and parallaxed a couple of maps. The main house is (kinda fully) 


mapped and hopefully the forest and other important maps are to follow. We're not even sure anymore


if the game's story is suitable to be called "HORROR" but we'll see as we write the story fully.


 


Update (3/19/2016)


Chapter 2 (The first in the game - chapter 1 is a backstory) has been fully mapped. Chapters 1,3-7 are still


to be written. Early concepts and sketches for Chapter 3 is currently being done. More scripts are integrated.


 


Update (3/21/2016)


Chapter 3 has been fully mapped. First maps are uploaded. Writers and Mappers are badly needed.


Please if you're interested, please PM me or email me.


 


Update (3/22/2016)


Added a couple of *sorcery* (haha) to Chapter 3. Something that will bug most players.


Additional editing is to be done to Chapter 3's maps. 


 


Update (3/22/2016) - a couple of hours later


Finally implemented Chapter 3 and editing is complete. I'm not sure how the players


will react to this "sorcery". I myself had chills and goosebumps testing it.


 


Update (3/24/2016)


Early map sketches for Chapter 4 has begun. Expected to be fully mapped by 3/25. 


New people has been recruited. Still waiting for their confirmation.


 


Update (3/25/2016)


Mapping is halted. Backstory is being rewritten with major changes.


Mapping will continue once a more solid story is made.


 


Update (4/3/2016)


We've paused some parts of the production as we try to re-enforce our backstory.


Also, artists were recruited. (Finally after sometime) But still, we are in need of


some spriters. 


 


Update (4/5/2016)


We're still on break. I am currently supervising character designs and some early


sketches were made.


 


Update (undated.. sometime back in 4/2016)


Game production stopped again (this is another big one like what we had back in 2014 and early 2015).


We experienced a lot of scheduling conflicts and decided to stopped the production


indefinitely. We're sorry guys.


 


Update (10/17/2016)


I'm preparing a short story based on Nephi. I'm planning to fully write it sometime this October,


further and additional preparation in November and production in December.


A recruitment might be in place when the concept is solidified.

 


For instant news, you may like Powerworks on Facebook. You may also visit our website here.
(Game's real website still in progress, this one's just for the meantime)


 


The game is to be released for free but we're planning to release it to different platforms and different websites.


A Steam release is also possible and so is a Google Play release.

Hi Jiggy! What made you disregard what you said? Just because its already taken doesnt mean you can no longer help. ;)

We're still in need of a spriter, tileset artist (you'd only create few, probably 10-20 32x32 tiles), horror consultant (to add more intensifying horror elements in the game). If you'd also like to help us write, we're still open for that position. :)

If there was an award for best game dev procrastination, I'd say 'meh, I'll pick it up tomorrow' >_>
Honestly though, I've been staring at the same half-made map for a while now haha! Ahhh, I'm so tired of mapping!
Time to add the support for import/export default RMXP maps. Maybe there will be customized tileset support later. In theory, I can reimplement the entire RMXP inside this RMXP-made game to make more RMXP games. :kaojoy:RMXPFORMATSUPPORT.jpg
Gonna make a story driven game someday in RPG Maker about this diseased character in my head. Will keep you posted, although I was warned by the authorities that posting too much would be considered 'spamming' so I WON'T SPAM. It'll be before I go in anyways. It's gonna be messed up but it won't be explicitly pornographic so don't worry, I'll give all the content warnings. :barf::barf::barf:
If you're a RM plugin developer, and you're reading this...

Thank you. You're awesome. Even if I haven't used your plugin, your work is appreciated.
