SECTION B: CHARACTERS
Lynn.png
Lynn Delonious: A young noblewoman from the kingdom of Regalia.
She is Niel's younger sister.
She has a hard time lightening up to other people and is eager to prove herself to her family.

Nyree.png
Nyree Kahlin: A criminal with a high bounty on her head and always on the run. She doesn't take kindly to others at first.
But actually can warm up around certain people after a certain amount of time.

Niel.png
Niel Delonious: A young nobleman from the Regalia Kingdom. He is the current heir to the Baroness of House Delonious and Lynn's older brother. He's way more dim-witted and laid-back than his sister. They are pure opposites.

Leon.png
Leon Freigh: The 2nd Prince in line for the throne of Regalia. He doesn't see himself going anywhere with his position, so he usally turns to sneaking out and doing other things aside from "acting his age".

Sid.png
Sid Freigh: The 1st Prince and heir to the throne for the Regalia Kingdom. He busies himself with tasks that politically involve the improvement of Regalia. He takes a lot of responsibilities to try prove that he can be the best king to his Father.

SECTION C: STORY

After nearly 1500 years or a grueling war, the Goddess Sythe has finally defeated Void, a universal enemy who has control over a never-ending darkness. Once his rule ended, a new era began, The Era of the Divine.
However, one cannot live without the other.

The era that brought peace was only momentarily.

in the year 286 DE, Nyree Kahlin is a wanted criminal for a crime she didn't commit, and is finally caught by Lynn and Niel Delonious, two noble siblings with contradicting personalities., and can barely work together.

But once their mother is killed by an unknown enemy, they are forced to work together to stop this incoming threat and avenge for their mother's death.

Section D: Elements

The elemental System works a little differently than most RPGs.
There are 3 Physical Types:
Slash
Pierce
Blunt

There are 12 non-physical elements (Ex: Fire, Ice, Thunder)
Certain skills will either be a certain type of Physical Element, or Non-Physical Element. (Mostly Magical Type Classes, or Classes that focus on a particular element).
However there are classes, such as the Swordsman Class for example, that focus on a Physical and Elemental attacks.

Ex:

There are 15 Elements in total: ElementSnip.PNG

Alright, I tried to play through your demo, and I didn't get as far as I planned to because I ran into not one, but two game breaking issues. I'll get to those, lemme start with some positives.
  • I did like your title screen. The artwork is good, the music has a nice feel to it. It's a good first impression
  • Your skill descriptions have icons and colours - thank you! Those draw attention and allow people to easily locate important effects of the skill
  • The revive item is 100% Hp+Mp. I appreciate that, even if I didn't use one. Thanks for making a revive item useful and one that gives players a chance to get back into a fight
  • I do enjoy the concept of combing elements: slash+fire, pierce+thunder, etc etc. I didn't get to experience much of it, but you can add a good amount of depth to combat doing that. Maybe make it more obvious what elements are good against what enemy, but that's more a personal choice.
I have some critical comments to add, though...
  • Your text boxes take up the whole bottom of the screen, yet text only fills part of it
  • The encounter rate is way too high. I took two steps, and got into a battle. Either drastically reduce your encounter rate, or add a minimum step counter between battles
  • Those pixies hit like absolute trucks. I cut through them well enough with skills, but the damage output on their Wind attack is brutal; if they were to target the same character and both use the Wind attack, dead. Random encounters that early in a game aren't usually that scary, especially when the rest of the enemies are decently balanced
Now for the game-breaking issues - sad to say there were two I found, and that was the end of my playthrough.
  • Failed to load Grassland (2) battleback for the fight against Nyree. I went into your files and added this so I could continue; I'm not sure how many people will be willing to do this, so that could very well be the end for a lot of players
  • Failed the load !Flame (2) characters inside the Regalia outskirts house.
It looks like you used the 'Exclude Unused Files' option when deploying. If you did, don't do that. MV's file exclusion system is heavily flawed. Manually remove the files, or just leave them (a few .png's shouldn't affect game size, if that's a concern for you)
I have a few suggestions to help you with the game's development
  • First, obviously, fix those game-breaking bugs
  • At the start of the game, I would add a small tutorial. Even do a scripted combat encounter that reveals some of the basics of your combat and equip system. I know you added a key item, but when games throw a book at me and tell me to read without even giving me a small tutorial, I don't read. Scripted combat is a good way to do a tutorial; it's engaging. Have some banter between the two sibilings - 'Hey, this Slime is weak to element X! If we run into these, Skill Y should cut them down, or we can equip a Rune to our weapons to change all our attacks to deal that element!' kinda thing
  • Why does the cat say the word Meow? Let it have a sound effect when you talk to it!
  • Give Nyree some skills other than Steal and Guard. She did nothing to me the whole fight, and afterwards there was a comment made about how she was strong haha
  • Block the pathway to the right after the fight with Nyree. I thought I had to go that way for a few minutes, and was thinking you forgot a transfer event
  • Regalia outskirts map is too small for the resolution, and results in a black outline. Also, there's a clipping issue with some of the trees - MV only offers 2 B-D tileset layers. Putting more results in the bottom layer being deleted and causes clipping

All in all, keep working on your game! Playtest it until you're sick of your own game,then grab some random playtesters to double-check. That will help stop game-breaking issues, and prevent small bugs or oversights.

Thanks for the feedback! I actually had to cut back on the filesize due to the file being way to big for the extended demo, and I've thought about adding the scripted battle dialogue boxes along with a quest book feature, but I had trouble with it in the past, which is why I dropped it, but I may add it back to give clarity to the player.
The duplicates were a problem, so I will have to edit and change them eventually when I get too it.
But all in all, thanks for the feedback. :kaojoy:

It's raining non stop since yesterday. The sound of the rain is so soothing.
I really miss the old style disney animated movies. I guess the last one was The Princess and the Frog from 2009. Now I am trying to collect every single one I can get on BD or DVD.
What I've seen from the MZ tiles looks pretty inconsistent, bleh. Every plant seems to be drawn in a different style.
Recently posted a demo of my game online. Now I have no idea what to do with myself o_O What is the reason for my existence now...
I'm feeling a lot better this week. Some of the rules in my country for isolation changed a little, so I was able to see friends in person again, which was a huge relief. Thanks everyone for giving me some sympathy last week when I was having a rough time!
