Synopsis​

Set on the floating islands that make up Aethera, Dragon Hearts: A Daughter's Promise is an RPG in which you take control of Isacaiah, a young girl who promised her parents to seal an ancient, mystical crystal. Unfortunately, the crystal was stolen, so she has to venture out and retrieve it first. She will give it her all to get that crystal back and fulfill her duty. It was a promise, after all...

Dragon Hearts: A Daughter's Promise is a short (1-2 hours) rpg featuring a linear story and turn based battles in which you use various skills to defeat your enemies. There is not much in the way of unique features, except for the minor wrinkle that you will be running with a party of one for the majority of the game. The game is not intended to be difficult, but be careful: game overs will happen if you overextend and run out of MP at a bad time.

Characters​

Isacaiah
A 12 year old girl, and the protagonist of the story. Despite her age, she has an incredibly strong sense of responsibility, and is not very keen on asking others to help fix her own problems.

Gondroch
The antagonist who has stolen the crystal. He is a bit of a nut case and has illusions of grandeur, but his magic is the real deal and that makes him a force to be reckoned with.

Moonlight & Infinity
A pair of masked travellers that Isacaiah meets on her journey. Where they are from and what they are doing is a mystery, but they seem all to eager to involve themselves in Isacaiah's situation.

Some more words​

This game was made in RPG Maker MV over the span of ~4 weeks and released for the Release Something Event (RSE) that coincided with the 31st birthday of the RPG Maker series. I really enjoyed making (and actually completing!) this game, so I hope that you guys will get some enjoyment out of playing my game as well.

The plan is that this will be the first in a series of games featuring characters and stories from all over the world of Aethera and beyond, but I admit that that is still very far away. For now, please enjoy this game!

Yisss, if the writing had some tightening up and the battle mechanics wasn't a aha gotcha moment sometimes (those last battles, yikes) I could see myself playing a series of this. It would take some serious balancing though. I typically don't like this type of.....battle style, and it will probably only appeal to a niche, tbh. I do like that it's oldschool turn based though.

The premise, and characters if explored further, I am HERE FOR. Yes, all of my yes. There's some odd choices here and there (like not hearing the MC speak sometimes and yet other times we're allowed??? for example), but overall I was actually left wanting more.

[ISPOILER]Specifically I want more Gondroch.[/ISPOILER][ISPOILER] :kaothx: Unless.......did he die? I hope not, cause he is best boye. I want to draw fanarts of him.[/ISPOILER]

It's nice to see some of my battlers out in the wild! I'm glad people are getting use out of them.

Okay anothe stupid question from me. Why is when everyone's explaining the scripts in the scriptlets, it chnge into green. how do i know when do i code without knowing whether its turning green or not
So I realized that I really just don't have enough time to make videos. However I don't mind clicking stream and just letting people watch me work on my game. I don't really have a good microphone... okay it's a $20 headset so it's terrible, and I have no web cam. So the stream would largely be royalty free music and me working, with minor interaction. I guess the question is, would that actually interest anybody?

Hi quick question. Is it possible for me to make a custom VXAce script without learning some bulkiness of Ruby?
