    ~The Seventh Warrior~ is a retro-themed, SNES-style RPG that tells the story of "Dark" the demonic crown prince of hell, who nearly conquered the world a thousand years ago but was able to be stopped and sealed away in the end. Now, a thousand years later, the demon prince returns after the seal is broken by fools who believed they could control him - how wrong they were.

    Hellbent on revenge, Dark is once again on a mission to take over the world but things are very different nowadays; back then he had an army of thousands of demons, orcs and undead under his command. This time he must do things alone. Soon Dark realizes that the world he once brought death and destruction to has drastically changed; the big empires he fought against are gone, new lands were discovered and new wars are threatening the world. And so it seems our demon lord is only one of many threats that could plunge the world into chaos...

    If you are tired of mimmicking the shiny sparkling hero and would rather rule the world than save it, if you want a humorous, chanllenging, storydriven game experience in 90's retro RPG style then this game is for you! ...Are you ready to take on the world?

    Hey guys! So it seems this thread didn't get any attention so far.. :blink::unsure:

    Let's see, if my new #breathoffire style battle system can change that! :)

    @Renicon Thank you! :) Yeah, there is no demo anymore atm. There was a demo out a while ago on itch.io but that demo got so much outdated, that I removed it. I'm working hard on the next demo which will include the first full chapter with a lot of cool features like swimming, climbing and a lot more. The development takes longer than I would like to, because of the costly sprites for the battle system. I can only afford so much a month. For example a basic monster with all animations costs around 320$. Bosses around 400-600$. I'm making steadily good progress with the game but I can't tell exactly when the demo will be ready. It should be sometime next year.

    Here is the swimming feature:

    This is gorgeous! I really love the mapping to this a lot and the overall project has promise.

    Do you plan on keeping the rtp-edited/inspired face portraits or do you plan on getting custom art for the characters?

    @Eliaquim
    Thank you very much! :D Glad you like it!

    @Ateliae
    Also to you thank you very much! Such kind words are really motivating! :)

    As for the face portraits, I do like the RTP faces and I will keep them in my project. However there will be a lot of custom commissioned artworks in the game ;) But the faces will remain edited RTP versions since I like the art style and I think it fits my project just fine :)

    Are you mapping this? Otherwise, who is this mapper? I am using XP RTP as well, and man, is it hard to find those who are able to use it to it's fullest like this. Beautiful. (if only I could find a way to translate that same beauty in MV!)

    @ZankokuNoYami
    Thank you very much! :) Yes I am mapping this myself. I am using the program Tiled for basic mapping and then I use parallax mapping with GIMP. All my maps are parallax maps.

    I think there are ways to do this also in MV.. for example MV has a plugin for "Tiled". But yeah I myself decided to work with VX Ace since I'm not a big fan of MV. I'm working way better and faster with Ace. If only Ace had the layer mapping of XP..

    Anyways, thanks again! ;)

    This is so, so, so pretty to look at! (Mappers are magic! How do you guys do that?? QAQ) And the premise/mc are pure comedic gold fodder! :yhappy:(Wonder which route I'll choose...? I'd like to think I'll unleash dark fury, but I'm a jelly fish when it comes to most characters/situations lol.)

    I love the battle system, it looks incredible! Full colored sprites, my gosh what a treat! And just...the pure amount of love and desication being poured into this is so apparent! :kaoluv: (built in my fav engine, no less!) I know a passion project when I see one!

    I'm so bummed to have missed the first demo, but I eagerly look forward to the next! Will this remain a free title, or are there commercial ambitions? Will it be translated from German? Either way, I'm hyped to see more of this!

    @Allusion
    Thank you very much for your kind words! :D That's really flattering and motivating :)

    The bad route is of course the funnier one xD But there will be situations where you have advantages and disadvantages depending on what you choose and some of these decisions have consequences throughout the game. And ultimately your decisions will decide which path "Dark" will choose.

    The last available demo is way outdated by now and doesn't represent the actual game properly anymore that's why I took it down. The game will be commercial but the next demo which will include the first full chapter with all its features will be free of course :) The game will be available in German and English. The next demo should be available sometime later next year.

    The dark route comedy is one of my biggest temptations, honestly! X'D I know I'd be missing out. (All villain routes in games are hilariously vile :guffaw:) 2 playthroughs it is lol! I'm looking forward to the full release, and will be buying for sure! And no problem, I'm happy to have found this!
