Story

The Last Lightbearer tells the story of a world at it's end, prophesied to have been saved nearly three centuries ago by it's
savior, the Lightbearer, who never appeared, allowing demons from an unknown world run rampant, leaving a path of
destruction in their wake as corruption, an incurable plague, spreads across the earth.

In mankind's final bastion, Aegis, resides Stella, a strong willed fighter who sees herself as the one meant to be the world's
savior, as, in her eyes, the destined Lightbearer was simply a coward who allowed the world to come to it's end, seeing them
as just as responsible as the demons for the state the world is in.

But as Stella becomes infected with the corruption, and in her final moments before it fully consumes her, she comes across
a mysterious young girl who miraculously pushes back the corruption in her body and nurses her back to health. But before
she can return the girl to Aegis, Stella finds her new companion has disappeared, and so she begins her quest to recover this girl and bring her to safety, seeing her as the key to mankind's survival, not realizing just who this girl is...

Synopsis
Unlike many turn based RPGs, The Last Lightbearer does not have random encounters, levels, or gear.
Instead, you, the player, must learn enemy patterns and tells to succeed. Each fight is carefully crafted with a specific
mechanic in mind to test the player's ability to pay attention, and think ahead, as simply attempting to force one's way through would result in a quick demise.
By watching for these enemy tells, learning patterns, keeping track of statuses, and watching counters above the enemy
(and likely a few retries as well), long, hard fought battles will become progressively easier, until victory is achieved.
But keep in mind that each fight is there to help prepare you for what is to come!

Combat in the early stages of the game are simple in order to introduce unique core mechanics to the game that the player
will need to be aware of. But as the game progresses, combat will become more challenging, punishing, and certain patterns
must be handled in specific ways in order to succeed.

Revival is not an option! If one character dies, it's game over. Use every skill wisely to assure no one falls!

Losing a fight does not mean going through menus and walking all the way back to the fight. It will quickly restart after each character falls, and there is even a retry item, should you feel the need to use it.
There are practice battles that can be accessed later on as well.

If battles prove to be too difficult, players will have access to Story Mode,
which will outright skip the fight while giving a short overview of what would have transpired.
The story will then continue from where the battle would have ended.

There is roughly 8 hours worth of playtime, when not using Story Mode.

Download
While the game is free, any support would be greatly appreciated, as I'm hoping to continue learning and progressing,
as this is the sort of thing I enjoy doing.
Be advised you will need 7zip to unpack the game.
Any additional issues found will be addressed, and the game will be immediately updated upon fixing.
The latest public version will always be posted here;

To anyone who has downloaded this and gotten game breaking errors, or errors of any kind, please know that I am still updating it to address these issues as they are found, but finding them all myself can be tricky. If you find any, do please let me know.
Also, be sure to download the latest version from Itch.io, as this is where all of the updated versions will go, and might possibly have a fix you need. Just transfer your save file over, and it should be fine.

My first attempt at a full game, yes.
Nearly everything was learned on the go, for the first time, as you see it in the game, which is why there's a lot of clunky, varied little things rather than consistency throughout. It was all experiments, and I kept what worked.

While the game is completed, I am still making small updates here and there.
If anyone's played an older version, but maybe put it to the side, please be sure to update if you do decide to try it again.
I post whatever changes I make on Itchio.
I will also be streaming full playthroughs every once in a while.
As of now, I plan on showing it again this coming Saturday around 12 PM EST, as long as nothing comes up between now and then.

wouldn't the same run-through be the same everytime?
if they know the pattern or wrote it down, they can beat the game
over and over :D

the story is nice and the battle unique if you need to remember their pattern.

I mean if someone put it to the side without finishing.
Yes, nothing was actually added to the story or anything like that, I just mean fixed and some QOL things.
Anyway, I'll be sure to post a link when I'm going to be streaming it again.

To anyone interested, I will be streaming a full (recorded) playthrough of The Last Lightbearer starting in about 10 minutes.
You can find it here;
If the above link is having an issue, it's 0Sirenity0 at Twitch.
Even though it's a recording, I will still be there to watch and chat with anyone else there.
But also please keep in mind that it is a slightly outdated version, so you may notice a few typos or other little issues that have since been addressed, such as Hints not being available.
Hope to see you there!

Thanks to all who came to watch!
I plan on doing this again for at least a few more weeks on Saturday, but probably starting later, like around 1 PM EST.
So if you missed it, or want to see parts again, feel free to come again next week!

Partitito's story is supposed to be about defeating poverty while thinking he is a capitalist with socialist ideas. But it's really about stories of redemption and perseverance.
Who would have thought an idea like "I wanna put the character bio in the equip screen" would turn into a bunch of work and fun collaboration @Puppet Knight . Now my Equip/Character screen is the way I want it.

Just one more week of grinding through semester finals and I'll be able to actually work on some games and stuff. Hopefully I'll be able to work on my game document to actually have my ideas somewhere outside of my cranium of madness.
