Better equip those relics (stickers) so that you can be better in battle. Make sure you have enough SP to equip it though <_<

Hmm... an uncolored picture of a slime. I wonder if we can do something about that.

A note from NKP

The demo showcases more mechanics than it does the overall story. The story is pretty lacking at the moment as we have yet to decide key plot devices and key points of interest to include in the story. There is some story, do not get us wrong, it is just... lacking in content. Nonetheless, we hope you enjoy what we have made so far.

From what we can tell, this game is rated E10+. There is some fantasy violence (fighting enemies), a bit of smoking and a bit of drinking. There even might be a mild swear or two.

This game is a constant work in progress. Mechanics and storylines are bound to change slightly in the future. The rating will more than likely change to a Teen rating. While the story is vague at the moment for the demo, more will be added to the beginning of the game and more will be revealed when you get further into the game.

This is a project that we have worked hard on together and are happy to share it with you all now. While nowhere near complete, we have decided to share the first portion of our game with you all... in the form of a demo. Please, check it out, critique as much as you can on what you can, all feedback is welcome and encouraged.

You cannot get better at something if you don't know what it is you are failing on.

Haven't the time to try the demo (yet) but this sure sounds and looks like it has great potential.
Will be returning to this at a later date :)

Please let us know what you think so far. Keep in mind that things are bound to change and we will keep suggestions in mind. We have an overall goal of what we want the game to feel like and play like but are more than open to suggestions and critiques.

You cannot get better at something unless you know what you are bad at!

UPDATE:
Been working pretty hard on getting "Part 2 or Chapter 2" of our game done! Lots of different maps to make and monsters to plan but we are getting there. Also, we have made some quality of life changes to the demo... fixed a few bugs here and there that people have reported (THANK YOU!) and for the now the demo should be playable without any problems.

Big thank you to all who are showing interest in our game ^_^! It really does mean a lot to us.

This update was to just you all know that we are still working hard on Storybook Hero as you all are our inspiration to keep doing so.

Here is a showcase video of the first 30-ish minutes of the game. Check it out:

Be sure to download it from GameJolt and give it a shot as well. The demo is pretty hefty. About 2 hours.

It was at 3am Pacific May 25 that Skynet was created. And it came in the form of a messenger plugin so powerful it now runs my randomizer and does it better than the randomizer itself did. What have I created? :kaoback:
Found out someone took one of my artist's commissions, edited it and claimed it as their own. Called them out on Twitter, got blocked. Not sure whether to feel irritated or honored.
Im so glad that im into 16/32bit games because i'd never be able to create any assets for something more complex :p
I was thinking of MAYBE (a big maybe) starting an soundtrack resource thread where I would post one track per week.
Another screenshot from my 3D RMMV project, this time from an inside map:
