    After hitching a ride on a shooting star, four unlikely heroes find themselves in a stone temple floating in the night sky.
    The four have agreed to banish every monster sealed in the temple after hearing the plea of Starlet, a star spirit who sadly was unable to come along. This leaves the heroes a bit lost as to what to do next, other than wander around smacking monsters. Luckily, that's something they happen to be very good at. That, and acting like idiots.

    The game was originally made as a weekend challenge, but it stretched into a full week. I'm rather happy with the result, as this game is a total solo effort, and it was the first time I did eveyr aspect of game dev by myself. It was a great experience, but I'll happily leave my partners to cover anything  regarding numbers >_<
     
    The big inspiration for this game was Crazy_Leen's Retro Pixel set, go praise her for her greatness here.

    Pfff, and of course something always is wrong with the very first release. ALWAYS.

    I originally uploaded the wrong link, it was an old zip file with rough patches a couple bugs. It's fixed now (it's an exe).

    If you downloaded the game before I posed this, download it again, install it somewhere and copy over any save files you had (the saves should be fully compatible).

    Unless you do this you wont see the best pic in the game during the credits, so, you know, definitely worth it XD

    Some thoughts as I played:

    Enemies reappear after the battle is cleared, and then fade out to the temple map.

     

    I ground levels before touching any of the real challenges, so I got to level 5 very quickly.

    "You have gained enough experience to be level 3!"  Checks status window, level 5.  Ok.

     

    "?" is cut off in a window of dialogue from Mab.

     

    So Karnak can hit with blade dance 8 times.  Now 11 times with blessing and roar buff.  It doesn't seem to wanna cap out at 5 like indicated.  Either I am doing something to make her attack more 

    somehow or after 6 years of math college courses I forgot how to count proper.

     

    Ashura fight was a lot of fun, and I instinctively felt out to let it sleep until I got the minions first.  Curse and paralysis were a big help here and in the blue slimes fight.

     

    The reward for all the blue slimes was great, and having all the items doubled helped immensely.

     

    Having the abilities upgrade and learning new ones through items/mini bosses was preferable to leveling up and getting them.  The side dialogue really helped to flesh out the characters, though Karnak was the most quiet.  
     

    I had an enjoyable time, and the battles were challenging.  It was a nice debut for the tile set which I had taken notice of, and for a small dungeon without exploration involved it was nice.

    *spits drink everywhere*

    I...I would be honored \;A;/ (tell me when you guys want to and I'll pass you the files)

    @Pala: ""You have gained enough experience to be level 3!"  Checks status window, level 5.  Ok."

    WOAH WAT. That is some major bug in there wtf XD And yeah, soemone noticed bladedance is a cheating ho yesterday too =_=u to be fair, karnak is a monster no matter what you do so 8 or 11 hits don't make much of a difference *wibble*

    Glad you could enjoy he game (limited as it is). I was actually dissappointed i could not use anythign but the temple due to time, I had like three towns mapped and I could not use them >c

    Waiting for a friend to paly (and see what bugs HE reports) and then will update the game with the fixes, thanks for the report '3'7

    Let me finished this thing..

    Edit Ah, I think the support banner is using more "s"es? It's spelled Stars's Favour

    EDIT #2 I've played a little bit and enjoyed it. But there is one issue I detected so far : In battle - When ">Retreat<" is selected, then I choose "Stay." The character facesets disappear, either I didn't knew that time that of what character I was commanding!

    Cool pixelated facesets by the way.

    I played this in one sitting and couldn't get enough of it. x3 The combat was fun, and I especially loved using Chain Lightning on large groups of mobs~.

    I didn't realize Karnak was female at first, so I was delighted to see a lesbian relationship, and like most of Indrah's games, the cast contains more females than males, which is refreshing in the male-dominated world of gaming.

    tl;dr every game Indrah makes is pure gold and this one is no exception. <3

    I already did done the game previous weekend, may I ask you who you hired to do your pixelated faces? You listed Miyanamisya (Avatar Maker) or something but I searched around the net, and I got home with empty hands.
