Plot:
One day before Little Red Riding Hood has to visit her ol' poor sick grandmother and meets a wolf 'who has a great mind of eating her up', she's enjoying a normal day running errands and playing outside.
Can you change the ending of this well-known fairy tale or will you let it run its course?

Genre: Non-RPG, Exploration, Adventure

Features:
* Lots of known and unknown fairytale characters (You win the internet if you spot them all)
* Multiple Endings: your (in)actions decide who lives or dies
* Journal (To keep you up-to-date for possible tasks)
* Humor? (According to my testers)

Character(s):
"Who's that I see walking in these woods? Why it's Little Red Riding Hood!"
Name: Mademoiselle Rouge
Title: Little Red Riding Hood
Age: 10
Likes: friendly strangers
Hates: cannibalism (in general)
Has a tendecy to: talk to everyone, especially when the person looks highly dangerous

“No sooner are you down the road than Goldilocks, that little toad, that nosy thieving little louse, comes sneaking in your empty house.”
Name: Miss Elouise
Title: Goldilocks
Age: 12
Likes: Cute things that are dangerous
Hates: Dangerous things that act cute
Has a tendency to: break into other people’s houses and steal (like a true RPG hero?)

Screenshots:

Mother Sandrine teaches her daughter a valuable lesson.

Talking to animals... it's possible!

Goldilocks sure likes to boast.

Lovely scenery atop the Hill.

You can found all sorts of persons in Hamelin.

@Nio: That's what you get for not being afraid :p Thanks! I hope you'll enjoy it, when you get the chance to play it :)
@Deathswallow: Well, that's a relief or I would have to warn the hunter and my granny about you.
@mlogan: I've been internally debating for a month whether I should put up a topic. I was even thinking about PMing you about my struggle, so you could tell me to post it. :) Also thank you. I hope you (and your kids?) enjoy it :D

I've only played up to entering the town, but it's delightful.  The fairy tales I've found (I'm not very knowledgeable, so I've probably missed loads)

Jack and Jill                        Goldilocks

Cinderella                            Jack and the Beanstalk

Sleeping Beauty                  Hansel and Grethel

3 Blind Mice                         The Mouse, the Bird and the Sausage

The Goose Girl                    The Boy who cried 'Wolf'

The Pied Piper of Hamelin

I'm sure I should be able to place The Shoemaker, but I can't.
You've obviously put a huge amount of work into this.  Well done.

I'm glad you are all enjoying it so much!
 
@Leila:

Spoiler



You know I never even thought about the Three Blind Mice. I just watched Disney's Cinderella too much, that I included the mice :3
There are three Hans's in the game, so I'm not sure which one you're referring to, but none are from the Walking Companion. I don't know that story to be honest (and google is only giving me The Walking Dead related queries. ^^; (Do you have a link or something with some more info? :) )
But yeah, those others are all in the game :D


There's a few more peeps from this site in the demo, but not that many. One or two left I think.

@ksjp:

All of those are correct ^^ The Shoemaker (and the Tailor) are from the Brother's Grimm "The Two Travellers". It's brutal like most of their fairy tales are.

Ahaha no worries! I was playing the game with the notion that every character was from a fairy tale, so when I saw the mice I thought it must be from The Three Blind Mice... But it makes more sense knowing that they are from Cinderella since there are more than three, I think.

And sorry about calling it the Walking Companion (^_^') (it's actually the Travelling Companion but I was trying to recall it from memory). I really loved fairy tales, mythology and folklore from junior high to highschool (I still have a translated copy of Hans Andersen's Fairy Tales that I used to read nearly everyday) so I'd borrow books on all types of mythology, legends and what not from around the world.

Played a bit and I'm loving. It even inspired my girlfriend to start using rpg maker too!

I noticed that the table with cards on top (near the clock with the hand stuck at twelve) can be walked over. I think that's not intended?

Any way, great job! I'll play some more later on

@Leila: Oh yeah, that was the initial idea to have every character be from a fairy tale, but it became obvious to me I'd never finish it at that rate. (Cooks and bakers aren't really popular fairy tale characters for instance) I do think around 70 % (probably more) are from fairy tales and legends (or related to fairy tale characters). Coincidentally there's actually exactly three mice, two in Cinderella's old house and one in her new house. ;)
Ah thanks, I found it now. I have a collection of HCA's fairy tales here at home as well, but I've been reading through the Brother Grimms' ones mostly (since they're shorter) for this game. (And Oscar Wilde's ones as well, because he's my favourite writer. :3)
 
@Hudell: Thank you :D And wow, never thought anyone would get inspired from this project, but I'm so happy she is! It's Always nice to get more people tinkering with RPG Maker :)
Yeah, that's not intended. Thanks for the catch!

Btw, if you think there's a fairy tale that should definitely be included, feel free to tell me~

I've tried my hand at a support bar, but I'm not too good at those ^^;

Hey, I'm still enjoying this game so far! I love the quests and the level of exploration it allows!

But, I ran into a game-breaking bug. When I went to find Rumpelstiltskin and the woman went to call him, I got this error:

Got through the demo today, here are my thoughts:

First of all, that intro had me laughing hard. I won't post more on it so as to not spoil it for others. After the intro, I did notice I was in the bed, how did you pull off that trick of making it so that the character was behind the blanket? On that note, I did notice the second blanket you couldn't rest on, just felt odd having one you could and one you couldn't.

What sprite style is that? XP? Or some combination of XP and VX? I thought it was well done, whatever style it was.

Went downstairs, was that a door down there? I thought it was and tried to go through it.

Headed out, walked around a while. Two things that bothered me (maybe a bug?)

1) You can walk through some flowers and not others. Took a minute to get used to it and learn which ones were passable and which were not. Is that a bug on the tiles? I was getting the impression you were trying to make flowers not walk on able, but you can walk on the white flowers.

2) When walking to town I would get stuck until I backed up and tried again. I did see a very small blue blur, it seemed I was getting stuck on it?

Got to town, spent a while just walking around before trying to do the quest. Very well down town! I got a laugh out of where you put some of the characters. Though, I did never find Dorothy, despite having a quest for her, is she not in the demo? Or did I just miss her?

Did the quest now, went for milk, learned a cow is missing? Is there a way to find that cow? Or is that just alluded to for the future?

Got the Oat Leaves, did the errands for the sugar. Got lost trying to find Blackbeard, but figured out I had not left town in one direction still. Got those, went home and it ended there.

Overall it was well done! I just have those two minor quirks mentioned above when walking into the town. Kind of wish my demo had only 2 bugs in it when it went live :) . I would like to play it to the end, despite not remembering my fairy tales well at all anymore.

Congrats on finishing the demo! :D

I’m glad you liked the intro :3 As for the blanket trick, that’s basically one of the RTP tiles. I’m not sure if you have RMXP, but if you do, each indoor tileset has a bed tile + an extra blanket tile. You put the bed on one layer and the blanket on a layer above. The blanket itself has priority in the database, so it will appear you can sleep when you walk on the bed. As for why you can’t sleep on the other bed: I thought it would be strange for Rouge to sleep in a bed that’s not her own, but you do have a point. I’ll see if I can’t make the blanket disappear after Rouge gets up.


They’re XP sprites.


No, not a door, but a provision closet. You’re not the first one to mistake it for a door though.


1) My thinking here was that smaller flowers (like the white ones) should be passable (‘cause otherwise you wouldn’t be able to walk on a lot of tiles), while the bigger ones (like the rose bushes) should be impassable. That seemed to me the most realistic, but I do think I’ve broken my own rule in the poorer part of town. I’ll make sure to check that.
2) Ah yes, sorry. That’s actually a blue moth flying around the lantern, so you sometimes get stuck. I’ll see if I can move him to another lantern, so you at least can’t get stuck anymore.


Dorothy’s in the game, but hidden. You probably just missed her.


Not yet. The missing cow’s a sidequest for the next demo ^^


I’m glad to hear that. (Oh believe me, there were lots of bugs before. I had a handful of very good testers (and then a handful that pretty much sucked). I also tested alongside them ^^)

Thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it. :)

I've updated both the RTP included and non-RTP links, as someone got stuck behind a NPC. I've also fixed some small bugs that's come to my attention.

As for news on the game: I'm working on it again! :D   I had to take a break of three weeks to do something else, but that's done now, so time to concentrate on this game again :)
So far, I've finished writing the side quests for the next demo (yes, demo, not the full game yet), as well as mapped another town. The outside's done, with the exception of some maps that lead away from it and the interiors are mostly done-ish. (They still need some more details, but hey!)

Anyway, here's a screenshot:

Succesfully finished a quest of saving my kitty who fell from a wall!

+25XP

MrKiwi leveled up!
MrKiwi learned how to save his kitty!
Final sprint for me, although a long one. If everything goes well, I'll graduate by the end of the year. Then I'll have to take the Bar classes and exams (4 months), then I'm off to practicing law (as an intern for 6 months, paid of course, then I'll be a full fledged attorney).
I think there is something wrong with my cat. He is acting CATatonic.
Want to find a quick answer? Say the wrong one and SOMEONE will fall all over themselves to correct you.
Back after almost two years! O_O"
It's time to get back to my unfinished character sprite attempt AND JS/plugin making learning! :D
