Pausing green light temporarily

After watching the statistics and gathering feedback from the users, it’s clear me and Glenn need to work on our presentation and the project itself a bit more. It will take time but we want to do this the right way. We will still post updated information about the product and by time we are ready to re-post we may even offer a demo for yall to check out. It is best to do this right if we plan to do it at all.

Hello rpg makers! I am proud to announce that our game "The Dragon Heretics" has now been posted on steam green light.

It would help us greatly if you can tell us what you think about the what we have posted for it. Also, helping us spread the word

would also help us a tone! We also would like to have you guys exclusively involved in the developmental process of this project

so we can make the best rpg we can! you can find information about the game (and recently leaked pictures) through our link below.

Here is what I posted on steam greenlight for those who have trouble accessing it (atm steam is being funky)

Quick Overview: 

The Dragon Heretics is an open world 2D action-adventure fantasy role playing game that is packed with content. The story follows Kaze (A dragon in human form) and Ashe (The princess of Arcania) in their (humorous yet interesting) adventure across the world in which dragons or dragon sympathizers are branded as heretics and are casted out of their own society (very much like the Salem Witch Trials!). It is their fate to restore the worlds order and to stop an unknown threat to the world itself. 

 

Honestly I can’t tell you what to expect from this game due to the choices you get to make. Depending on your choices, you may laugh, cry, hate, love, or all of the above. 

 

Features: 

• Hours of game time with the main story line (even more so if you decide to do the optional side quests. 

• Full Blown RPG (None of that chapter stuff, you’re getting it all!). 

• All custom resources (Or near all custom resources). 

• RTP Mode for the slower computers (or if you just like rtp). 

• Your choices affect the outcome of the whole game, everyone will have their own unique story. Also, the save data can carry your choices over into future installments! 

• Achievements! And if possible will carry over to steam. 

• Side by Side battle system with each character carrying their own unique skills. 

• No DRM! If you want to share with your friends go right on ahead! (Edit, if steam DRM does not allow this, It will be capable in RTP mode, there will also be a DRM to "help" prevent it from being posted online. Sorry about the confusion on this). 

• Massive open world. 

• Lots of puzzles and side quests (and they will not be grindy like cutting down 5 trees). 

• Congratulations! You leveled up, and so did your enemies! 

• Powered by the Luna Engine! 

• I can keep going, but if you want specifics you can post a question on our Q&A thread here: http://steamcommunity.com/groups/TheDragonHeretics/discussions/0/558751364716355995/ 

 

If enough interest is shown in the project, we will go into full development and launch a kick starter where you, the community, can became personally involved in the development of this game.

PS: Just PM me here in case of anything that needs to be done, I've still yet to remember my steam account. :)

First -> You need to check your grammar. Bunch of mistakes in that blurb. May not seem like a big deal, but that sets the bar for expectations for the game: if you can't write a summary correctly, what's the game dialog going to be like?

Second-> If the game is on Steam, you can't say it's DRM free. Steam is DRM. You can have a DRM-free version available elsewhere, like your company's website, but not through Steam.

Thanks for pointing this out, I will check more carefully and read over it.

I updated the point about DRM free to help mitigate some confusion.

  • Action game, a video game genre that emphasizes physical challenges, including hand–eye coordination and reaction-time
It will have these to some degree both inside and outside the battle system, It is still something that is being worked on and we purposely left that stuff out of the media.

Until you are _ABSOLUTELY_ sure what you can deliiver, I wouldn't promise anything about DRM. This is one of those things that can come back to bite you if you don't follow through on what the voters think you "promised". For example, how will DRM that 'helps' prevent it from being posted online not prevent it from being shared online with a friend? How will RTP mode help if your friend doesn't own a copy of RPG Maker?

If we ever do get greenlit I highly expect for someone to make a pirated copy at some point but I won't become fanatical about it. As for the DRM between friends, if for whatever reason steam wont allow it with their DRM, the Export (RTP Mode) feature creates a separate entity of the exact same game but with a few graphical features cut back (such as parallaxes) and it will have no steam DRM on it (it should still look good). As for the one that is suppose to "help" prevent versions posted online will be built within the game itself. I can't go into to much details on it yet until I have spoken to several people about it but we do plan on adding it in.

I do get what your saying though and it is great advise.

anyway, I do believe that should be on the least priority things to do... Let's focus first on finishing the game itself. :)
