    Alright here with another update log:

    I currently uploaded some new files to the same version as a sort of 'transition' but I can't call it a new version because of the small changes.

    That said; I am currently busy integrating a huge Quest system and that is a LOT of work. I will do this partially because of the huge amount of work it will take to implement. Once it is fully implemented to as far as the story goes I will make an official statement of releasing V1.4.1(b).

    Here is a list of the small things I currently added:
    - Tweaked the intro to feel/look better after LP'rs commented on some things.
    - A new version of the Title background made by my artist (still not finished 50% right now).
    - Some small graphical work here and there like outlining things and making things less edgy.
    - Some grammar changes.
    - Victory Sounds reduced by 15%
    - Some more decor for some of the battlefield.
    - Small changes to the tutorial battles and their explanation because of what the LP'rs recommended.
    - A small performance improvement because of a core plugin update.

    That's that cheers!

    *EDIT*
    - Added the 'Side Event Journal' for the prologue! Now to add all the other quests in the coming weeks.

    V1.4.1(c) is up!

    - Fixed some bugs.
    - Made the lighting in all the dark places much bigger as many LP'rs mentioned it.
    - Streamlined some side events better with handling how they were processed and updated.
    - Added a new side event in the Denari tribe.
    - Added the world map piece I made for the 'animal farm' where the player will be able to play some mini-games.

    I do know have the feeling that I am done with the polishing 'rounds' for this year. So that said I will focus most of my free time again on creating new content as the world map piece for the farm is symbolic proof of that! I really appreciate how the community is helping me develop this game so thanks to all of you, in return I have done a lot of LP's/First impressions again lately for many other developers that you can check out here.

    Update: V1.4.1(d)

    - I put aside my stubbornness and made it able to open treasure chests from any direction and not only from the front anymore.
    - I put in a sneak peek of the 'farm' it also had a name now: The Burning Meadow. Go explore it and let me know what you think!
    - Added some small enhancements (not really noticeable I guess but yeah).
    - Noticed some things my little girl changed when I left the computer on in the last build... repaired that :mrsatan:

    Keep the feedback coming community I really appreciate it, your rock! :rock-left::ninja::rock-right:

    I couldn't have gotten this game to this standard without the community and the feedback I received. Thank you, everyone, for your support! Keep the feedback coming :thumbsup-left:B):thumbsup-right:

    I have bought myself a whole lot of new music for commercial use. Will be implementing that in the coming versions as well. I noticed because of an LP'r that pointed out some of the music had electric guitar's or jingles in them that gave him the feeling it didn't really fly with the piano, vocals, and drums I mostly use. So look forward to some music changes because I think it is going to be epic.

    V1.4.2(a) is out!

    I am releasing this one because of the many changes already and I can't keep up otherwise. I have done some overhauling here and there in the prologue because I wasn't satisfied anymore with some parts and thought they could be done better after another LP'r mentioned it. Hope you will like all the new changes:

    - Balancing some of the event's mechanics.
    - Bugs I found got squashed.
    - New Music for PROLOGUE.
    - Re-written jokes in PROLOGUE.
    - Text re-written here and there.
    - Mini-game first challenge is playable.
    - Some detail enhancements.
    - Some graphics enhancements like the face of Akila (still not finished)
    - New picture art for the credits and game over screen implemented and it is AWESOME! Now play it and find a place to die :mrsatan:

    Enjoy,

    -DpC- Out!

    Getting some serious Dune vibes from the screenshots; probably because it looks like it has some Middle Eastern influences.

    I'll have to download this on Wednesday and give it a go.

    I noticed I forgot to add a music file when you die... Added it in the ME folder for people who already downloaded the game from the last post.

    - I will also add a new picture to the screenshots from the game over menu.

    @The Stranger It is a windows version so as long as you're mobile can support that it should be possible I guess.

    @Grantronic4 Thanks and I hope you can also see it as inspiration for your own project!

    Keep your data child-proof, but I’d love to see some of these “outtakes.”

    Looks promising regardless. Made it past the prologue last night.

    @BloodletterQ What do you mean with child proof? And outtakes?

    Love to hear your opinion of the game when you finished the current version. It helps me to decide wich way I'm gonna go with this game. Hope you will enjoy it :cutesmile:

    My sister came by to discus some improvements and I don't know why but at some point I have a cactus blocking the way and she asked me; how can 1 cactus block your way? So I wad kinda blown back why I never noticed myself hahaha! Some other parts as well in the prologue will be different just because it is more logical so no big changes but logical ones.

    This will all be implemented in the next update together with the 2nd of 3 parts of the mini game at the farm. I am done mapping it so from this point I will be doing eventing and then I will upload it. This will probs be done this week so look forward to it!

    Shamefully I have been a bit sick this week so I didn't get to do much work on the game. I have a raw concept of the game done that works but is not at the level that I would like it to be to release it. Because of this, I decided that I will need more time before the next update.

    When I will update I will begin working on the last part of the mini-game and then I will enhance the sentences and check everything for grammar issues.

    Cheers,

    It's finally done! V1.4.2(b) is up and running. Here is a list of changes:

    - Light sources in the Denari caves (mysterious building) are bigger.
    - Dokta can be accessed without the need of a button from ALL sides.
    - Summoning/alchemy circle has been changed as someone that watched the LP made a comment about it feeling too much like 'RTP'.
    - Lowered many Cooldowns for the skills and made enemies use skills less that have row movement in them.
    - Changed the skills in the prologue and made them easier to use.
    - Changed the look of the cactus in the prologue from 1 cactus to multiple to make it feel more real.
    - Changed some of the explanations in the prologue to make more sense.
    - Some small bugs flattened here and there and some small reworks in texts.
    - 2nd stage of the 2nd mini-game complete.
    - A new side quest has been added in the Denari tribe.

    Thanks to @HawkZombie that made many things possible because of his Let's play of 'The Lost'!

    What you can expect in V1.4.2.(c):
    - Final (3rd) stage of the mini-game completion.
    - Story/event enhancement on the burning meadow.
    - Grammar control when on the burning meadow (farm).

    That will conclude V1.4.2 series and then I will move on to the next area for me to build up which will be a side event area where the player can find another deeply written story lore that will definitely draw you further into the story of the game.

    I will do some lets plays myself again in the coming month as my list of games to play keeps growing.

    Cheers,
