Foreword:
In mid December, more than half a year after I've finished my last game Re & Apophis, I was totally in the mood to create a very oldschoolish RPG (very simple story, only 16 colors etc). Very soon I have decided to experiment a little bit with the graphics and the result can be seen on the screenshots.
Already back in mid 2015, I created a few graphics for a new game,
ScreenOct15.png
though because of R&A I did not work much on it. Though back then I had the idea for a series of games which are both centered about two characters, Crescent and Sunny. These games would take place in different worlds and the two main characters would not be the exact same persons from the other games, though reincarnations - who are somehow connected through time and space.
Anyway, I do not know if I will ever make more games, besides tLMBatD. Only time will tell.

A few basic infos:
-the game is short (~3 hours)
-the gameplay is very classic (though no random encounters! ;))
-the game does not take itself 100% seriously all the time, like mentioning of possible plotholes by the characters etc.

Enough rambling.



Story:
The story is centered around an evil count who seeks for power. He gets knowledge about an ancient weapon that is localized in the "Golden City". So he orderes his men to kidnap the king's daughter, Sunny, to learn more about it. Far away, a man called Crescent is on the way to rescue her, after he has the strange feeling that an unknown but simultaneously familiar woman is in danger.



(Main)Characters:

Crescent:
Crescent is one of the two main characters. As he is about to end his own life, he suddenly sees something in front of his inner eyes that changes his mind. He travels to a far away shire to rescue a woman, who is kept there against her will. Crescent uses swords (as does almost every main character in RPGs).

tLMBatDchar2g.png

Sunny:
Sunny is one of the two main characters. She is of royal blood and the descendent of a legendary hero, who defeated and sealed away a rampaging daemon hundreds of years ago. She is the kind of person who always says what she thinks, even if others will not like it. Sunny uses fire spells as well as healing spells (also pretty generic for female characters in RPGs, isn't it?).

Christian:
This enigmatic young man is a mercenary and a very poweful spellcaster whose specialty are thunder based spells. He joins forces with the party as they have to travel through a very deadly region, thus needing accompaniment.

Jack:
This young soldier was sent by the king of the "Golden City" to rescue Sunny. He teams up with Crescent, as his goal is the same. As soldier of the king he is a very skilled swordfighter.

Crescent and Jack fight against some foes (Slime, Wlizzzard and PiRat) in the sewer:

Sunny uses one of her special skills against a Klutz:

It seems as if Crescent and his companions are going to face a huge threat:

The art style is just unique! And the story looks interesting.

I like it.

There's no any demo version so I can play it

Thank you. :)

No, there's no demo and there won't be.
The full version will be released in May/June, though.

Thanks for your kind words. :)
I'll do my best. Until then, you can also play my most recent game (signature), to see if you even like my style. ;)

The maps look great and that's coming from someone that isn't the biggest fan of this particular style.
But I'm actually interested in playing this one. Keen for the release. :)

RMMV
This looks really, really unique! I'm excited to try it out. Although, I will say you should probably look for a bitmap font to replace the Gamefont as it's a bit of an eyesore with the graphics.

@Sarah79: Sure, I will.^^

@Authumbla: Actually it will be released even one day earlier, since I won't be able to upload it on friday. :)
(Which is kind of sad because 07.07.17 is such a nice date. :/)

Hey,
unfortunately there is a little bug in the game (see picture).

If you press enter on this spot, Jack will join the party. This is not wanted.
A new version (1.01) is uploaded right now and will be available in half an hour or so.

Edit: V1.01 is up now.

A side story is almost getting into the next stage. Almost everything in this game has real-life references.

Everyday life is full of absurdity. This is just a reflection.
TFW you discover how the script batching works in VNMaker... after you've had the program for almost 3 years.
Writes that the characters have to climb a mountain.

Realized that I have to draw six sets of models where characters are climbing.

At least I know how to draw something. :)
I'm currently scratching my head on how to design plains. What do I even put in plains? Some trees (but not too many or it turns into a forest)? Grass? A few bushes? That's a bit dull.
I'm looking for tutorials but Google didn't seem to find much (or maybe I have the wrong keywords). I don't know how to map plains and I don't know how to learn.
