Well to start I suck at trying to sell things since I get too honest haha. This is my very first game ever but I'm confident it isn't total crap. Most everything is the stuff that came with RMVXAce except for a few things. I'm still working stuff out but I got most everything I wanna do thought out. I also tried my best to keep the game teen rated but really funny. Also includes Austin (the hero of the game) trying to pick up girls at every turn (and fail real badly).

I'm trying to keep this game as simple as possible since this is my first game. I originally planned on not using any custom scripts or graphics. Though I ended up on making a few compromises but only on small things. Right now I planning on making the game out of 95-99% of the default stuff (Graphics and script wise). Anyways on to the game.

In world that is extremely similier to many other worlds there is a small section of that world. This section is the two islands where this grand (but not very unique) adventure takes place. Within the islands are 3 countries. They are called King Herbert's Kingdom (Herb's Kingdom for short), Mails, and the Darklord's country. For years Herb's Kingdom and Mails has had a treaty with the Darklord's country in where they will not interfere with each other. That has just changed though. One day, King Herbert received news that the Darklord has been gathering up his army in Mails just south of Herb's Kingdom's biggest port city, Ramus. So what does the king do? I'm sure you guessed it by now. He send his country's strongest warrior to investigate the cave and if possible kill the Darklord himself. Sound familiar? It should. The next part though is a bit different. The king is sending the warrior to not only keep the country from being invaded but also he hopes the warrior will die in the process. I'm sure your wondering why. Well that warrior is an asshole that causes alot of problems in the kingdom. And since he's the strongest no one can keep him from doing what he wants if he really wants too. This here is where this all too familiar story with an unfamiliar hero begins.

The Countries:

King Herbert's Kingdom: This small country has had a long and peaceful history throughout it's existance. The one time it was at was was during the third kings reign. At the time it was Called King Salem's Kingdom and was at war with the mysterious country that belonged to the Darklord at the time. They allied with it's neighbor country, Mails, and drove off the Darklord's army and the Darklord was killed. Then the treaty brought about the peace the country knows today.

Mails: The country that borders the Darklord's country to the north. This country too has had a long history of peace but the war with the old Darklord has left more scars in the country then it ever did with King ______'s Kingdom. People here fear the non-humans (or intelligent monsters) alot more. So the few peaceful non-humans are treated the same as the hostile ones. This country has two very unique cultures that center around Mails' two very differant enviroments. The people of the desert the hardy sort since they have to deal with harsh conditions daily. Though they a good people and work together whenever the need arises. The people of the grasslands are very different. They are very greedy and wealthy but weak at the same time. This is why in the current war with the Darklord, they got destroyed
almost immedietly. Only when the Darklord's army reached the desert they had problems invading Mails.

The Darklord's country: Even though this country lacks a proper name it is still a country nontheless. It is a country made up of non-humans (Vampires, werewolves, orcs, trolls, etc.) It is a very desolate place and too be honest no one wants to be there. The one place that has any comfort is it's only city called Hellot (possible change. Up for ideas). There are small vilages dotting the country as well but Hellot is the only true city. In days long past it was at war with King Salem's Kingdom and Mails. At first they had the upper hand but after King Salem's country joined, things started going downhill for them. The old Darklord was eventually killed. The Darlord that took his place proposed a treaty. The conditions was as long as the Darklord's country didn't bother Mails or King Salem's Kingdom then they would no longer attack the Darklord's country. The treaty was agreed too and all the land that was left for the Darklord was the desolate mountainous place that it is today. It is still being ruled by that very same Darklord that proposed the treaty. The reason he decided to invade now after keeping his word is still unknown.

The Characters:

Austin:
Age: 22
Class: Warrior
Personality: An egotistical asshole who tries to pickup girls whenever he can.

The hero of the story. His past is unknown to everyone but himself. He used to be best friends with a man. (Austin purposely forgot his name in order to help him forget) Austin was actually rich while the man was poor. Austin hid that fact from the man and they had a great time together for many years. When Austin was 17 the man fell into poor health. The only way to cure him was with a very expensive medicene. Everyone who knew the man thought he was going to die. So Austin used his wealth to buy the medicene. The medicene worked and the man was cured but Austin could no longer hide the fact he was rich. Soon afterwards Austin came home to find his family murdered and everything of worth was taken away. He also found out the man has disappeared. At first Austin believed the man was killed by whoever killed his family since they was friend. After six months of doing whatever he can to find out who do it he found his best friend. His friend though was living a life of luxery that Austin once knew. Still Austin didn't believe the man killed his family. Then one night after reuniting with the man Austin was attacked by the man. Austin won the fight but he killed the man in the process. When his vengence turned into sadness and shock, Austin then became very depressed and ended drinking every night to drive away his sorrows. When Austin was 19 he slowly stopped drinking so heavily and started traveling and picked up swordsmanship. He also became an
egotistical asshole who didn't trust anyone in order to not remember what happened. He eventually found his way to King Herbert's Kingdom when he was 21. He was stayed there for a year (The longest he ever stayed in one place since traveling) and somehow became known as the strongest warrior in the country. This is where the story takes place.

Gale:
Age: 19
Class: White Mage
Personality: Kind and thoughtful except toward Austin. She is quite smart but she get's easily embararessed by anything of sexual nature and thus gets really mad at Austin very easily.

The first person of the DHT Austin runs into on his mission to kill the Darklord and is the middle sister of the DHT. She was an orphan who never knew her parents. She was raised up in an orphanage where she met her sisters (They aren't related in any way though). The orpanage was located in a desert village where life was tough. She always played together with Adel and Cilla. When she was 8, she eventually came up with the idea to play heroes with her sisters. They agreed and started to pretend they was heroes, calling themselves the Desert Heart Trio. Then one day, a boy at the orphanage got lost. She convinced her sisters to help find the boy even though they was told not to. They found the boy lost in some ancient ruins that was nearby and rescued him. From that day on they pledged to become real heroes. This is why she started to study white magic. In order heal those who got wrongfully hurt.

Now she is a powerful white mage and the healer of the DHT. She and her sisters became a mercenary group that helps everyone in Mails without asking much in return. Because of this they are widely known and adored by the people of mails. They even have their own fan club. When the war between Mails and The Darklord's country broke out the DHT was on the frontlines trying their best to hold them off. Though they alone couldn't stop the Darklord's army's advance. They eventually came up with a plan to kill the Darklord himself. They didn't feel they could take up this task alone so Gale went to King Herbert's Kingdom to look for the rumored strongest warrion in the country that is even known in Mails. This is how she met up with Austin.

Cilla:
Age: 17
Class: Black Mage
Personality: Shy and Timid. She hardly talks and mainly nods or shakes her head. When she does talk she has one of her sisters talk for her.

She is the second person of the DHT that Austin runs into and is the youngest sister of the DHT. Cilla grew up in a very bad enviroment. Her father often did horrible things to her mother and completely ignored Cilla's existance. When Cilla was 5, her mother finally ran away from her father with Cilla. They arrived in a desert village where they stayed for awhile but eventually her mother died from sickness. So Cilla put in the village's orphanage where she met her sisters Gale and Adel. Gale and Adel tried their best to cheer up who always looked sad and alone. Eventually Cilla started warming up to them and soon after that became best friends. When Cilla was 6, Gale came up with the idea to pretend to be heroes. Cilla reluctantly agreed and started to play heroes (though she really didn't do much). Then one day, a boy from the orphanage got lost. Gale tried to convince her to go help find the boy. Cilla really didn't want to go but went anyways since she trusted Gale and Adel. They found the boy in some nearby ruins where he was lost. They rescued the boy found out she didn't need to be araid so much. From that day one they pledged to become real heroes. This is why she started learning black magic. To fight off the people who harm the innocent.

Now she is an excellent Black Mage and the attacker of the DHT. She and her sisters became a mercenary group that helps everyone in Mails without asking much in return. Because of this they are widely known and adored by the people of mails. They even have their own fan club. When the war between Mails and The Darklord's country broke out the DHT was on the frontlines trying their best to hold them off. Though they alone couldn't stop the Darklord's army's advance. They eventually came up with a plan to kill the Darklord himself. Though since they felt like they weren't strong enough to take on the the task by themselves Gale went to the nearby kingdom to find someone very powerful. Cilla stayed behind in the last remaining port in Mails to help make sure the Darklord's army doesn't take over the city.

Adel:

Age: 21
Class: Knight
Personality: Strong and very protective of the people she likes. Often like to tease people as well. While Austin likes this side of her, he also get's annoyed by it too.

The third member of the DHT that Austin runs into and the oldest of the sisters. She grew up in a decent life for a while. Her mother died when she was born and was raised by her father. Though her father often traveled in order to makes ends meat. He was a fighter who would get hired to protect caravans or hunt down monsters that caused problems and things of that sort. Of course he couldn't bring his daughter with him for it was much too dangerous. Then one day he just never came back home. That was when Adel was 8. She lived in a desert village whenever her father went away and was forced to learn to cook for herself and other household things. When her father didn't come back she was put into the village's orphanage. She adjusted to living there quickly mainly because she often played with the children that lived there including Gale. When Cilla arrived to the orpahnage the three of them often played together. One day Gale came up with the idea to pretend to be heroes. Adel quickly agreed with the idea and so they pretended to be heroes. One day a boy who was part of the orphanage became lost. Gale tried to convice Adel to come help her find the boy but Adel didn't want to. They was told to stay at the orphanage and she didn't want to get into trouble. Though Gale did convince her and the three friends searched for the boy. They found the boy in some old nearby ruins and rescued him. Even though three of them did get into trouble for not doing as they was told she felt it was worth it. From that day on the three of them pledged to become real heroes someday. This is why she learned to become a fighter and praticed everyday with the spear and shield her father left behind. In order to protect the innocent from those who would do them harm.

Now she is one of the strongest people in Mails and the protecter of the DHT. She and her sisters became a mercenary group that helps everyone in Mails without asking much in return. Because of this they are widely known and adored by the people of mails. They even have their own fan club. When the war between Mails and The Darklord's country broke out the DHT was on the frontlines trying their best to hold them off. Though they alone couldn't stop the Darklord's army's advance. They eventually came up with a plan to kill the Darklord himself. Though since they felt like they weren't strong enough to take on the the task by themselves Gale went to the nearby kingdom to find someone very powerful. Adel stayed behind with Cilla in order to protect Mails' last remaining port.

The Darklord:
Age: Unknown
Class: Darklord (Not really a class)
Personality: Evil?
The guy that everyone is trying to kill. Little is known about him since he never leaves his country which has isolated itself. What is known about him is that he was the one who created the old treaty. Though might entirely be possible it's not the same one since no one really knows much about him. All that we know is he is currently invading Mails for some reason.

Features:
- 6 bosses and dungeons.
- 3 side quests
- 3 three different endings
- Funny story and a funny cast of characters. (Even some of the item and skills has jokes in some of their descriptions!)
- Choose between 4 different BGMs for the final battle! Choose between Trance, Metal, Orchestra, Metal + Orchestra, or the Default Boss BGM!
- An asshole hero (Yes I know I mentioned that before. But he is a main feature.)
- Save feature, load feature, a battle system.... what? Those are features too. I could've not included those if I wanted.

First Major News Update!

Well I have the second dungeon-like area almost complete. I just gotta make the cutscene for the boss fight and I'm done... with the dungeon. But to be honest i was hoping to make this update as soon as I finished the dungeon but kinda been... lazy... or maybe another way to put it, I'm not in a creative mood right now (probably because I started playing katawa shoujo, then played Final Fantasy: Tactics since I found out the original was in the Playstation store, then played more katawa shoujo, then started another VN...) so yeah... I'll probably start back up... sometime lol. I promise I won't put the project on hold much longer.

Now I figured out which actor I'm gonna use for Cilla, which is the purple haired mage chick (and for the face I'm gonna use Nessiah's sad face for her) but I'm having problems with Adel. Only one actor has any resemblance to the Adel in my head but there is two problems. The actor is the pink haired ninja chick but.... Adel isn't a ninja. So the default sprite won't... actually I think I may have an idea to fix that problem... but the second problem is the face is drawn in a different stlye than the other three MCs and I stand it. It's feels out of place to me. So I made a request in a different forum in hope that that someone good at editing could fix those problems but I've had zero luck with that unfortunately.

And the last piece of news is I'm making Sairen (from Princess Princess fame) a cameo appearance in my game since A) I thought that game is hilarious B) I loved the Sairen jokes the most and decided to try my hand at it C) To be honest... Princess Princess is the first RPG game I played that is an RM game hahaha.... (And one of the first 3 Rm games I've played) so that kinda tells you guys that I really am very new to RM in every way. Also I made sure to get the A-OK from Nessiah first so she knows about it. Though just by writing (typing?) this I just thought if I should use the trail version of Sairen or the full game version of Sairen for his/her face.... I probably should go ask that haha...

Anyways I think that's it for my first major news/progress report/update thingy... Oh wait. I also plan on making a video of the first 10 or so minutes of what happens directly after where the demo left off when I finish the dungeon so you all can give me any feedback you deem helpful.

Not seeing a lot of Desert in the screenshots.

Not seeing a lot of Desert in the screenshots.


Yeah that part comes directly after the first part of the game. All the screenshots are from the beginning of the game. Though only about 2/6 of the game will take place in a desert.

There should be a demo coming in soon. Says the status is pending right now but when it not pending I suggest checking it out. Though don't expect something like "Holy crap this is so freakin' awesome!" I highly doubt anyone's very first game ever would be that good lol.
How the heck did this get 2000 downloads so quickly? I must learn your secrets...

lmao I was wondering that too...
Let's go beg him to teach us the secret forbidden art of increasing game downloads ò_ò
I just checked this now and whoa 2000 downloads

2020 downloads in two weeks! Quite possibly the most impressive feat I've seen since Stonesearch - maybe you should write an article about how to not market games and still get downloads :D
O.o Man I go off and play a game for 2 days and all of a sudden I get a ton a DL's! Either it's a glitch, bot, or somehow I'm freakin' popular.

I seriously leaning towards it being a glitch or a bot or something 'cause I can't believe this.

I'm in even disbelief then you guys.... I mean wow...

But for so small miniscule chance that it's because it's popular then now I now I know I got some super hidden talent at demo making :P (and possibly game making) or I'm dreaming but this is one hell of a vivid dream then.

I don't want to stop your dream, but, you sound really sincere, who could be doing this and why?
This is exactly what chana was talking about a while back. Inexplicable downloads. I'd be willing to bet that the author did nothing in terms of advertising this game outside of RMN(confirmation?).

The "secret" lies elsewhere.

I can just picture it's some juvenile user spam clicking the download links on random games. It's hard to look at download count as any kind of meaningful stat any more :/

Right. The worse is I was helping some guy with his game (decent game, really) and when I saw those 500 downloads in a few hours (+ an overly praising review coming out of nowhere actually..), I was shocked and quit.
So I really want to know the truth about this.

Well there is one other forum where I posted this about a week before I posted this here. That's the only other advertisement I have but I'm sure that wouldn't be enough be enough to get 2k+ DL's in 2 days (which is about the last time I checked my game).

Even I want to know what is going on... Has there been any other games that had a super sudden explosion of DL's like mine? Or is this the only case that this has happened?

There has, 3 or 4, maybe .5

That means almost half the amount of people who looked at this games page decided to download!?
The code for updating the download count is really straightforward, and i dunno, if there was a glitch in the code, wouldn't this issue be much more commonplace, rather than 2 or 3 times ever?

Also, I notice that the download is on mediafire. I didn't see a download count on the mediafire page, but can you see a download count for your own download? If the numbers don't jive, I can try to look deeper. (not sure where though...)

I'm almost sure it's very simple : some one or a few download "like mad", the question is, did the maker ask them to do this or did they decide to do it on their own, to help their friend, or, eventually, just as a joke.

That's a good place to look. Perhaps you could look at the timestamp of RMN download clicks(if such a thing exists). If they are just a few seconds apart over several minutes then it's most likely someone spamming the link. If that is the case, some kind of system that prevents the same IP address from downloading again in a fixed period of time. Or at least, prevents it from registering as a download within that period of time. Kind of like the difference between page view and unique page view.

Maybe discuss this in a thread instead of on a game page? This game is already buzzing up a storm xD

You don't even have to click download (EDIT: I mean the download button inside the mediafire link) to get the download count to go up. You just have to click on the RMN page button, and even if it's from the same IP, you can increase the count. I just artificially increased it by five in about ten seconds.

Was this meant to introduce new information? haha I'm talking about the idea of introducing a system that uses IP address to prevent one person from increasing the count by five in ten seconds.

You are now part of the problem.

Okay, so an IP address from Romania "downloaded" this game 1969 times in a span of about 20mins. The cause could be myriad, but it could have been a ddos attack, a glitch in some guy's browser in Romania, a really big fan, or who knows? Ankylo is looking into a quick fix for this.

In light of this information, I am going to reduce the download count of this game by 1968.

Alright cool. Even though having it seem like I had 2k DL's feels awesome, it's better to have the actual download count (Which could still be artificially high).

Anyways, I checked to see how many DL's there was from the mediafire side and it said I only 94 total downloads... so yeah something happened.

Anywho, that IP thingy that Link mentioned sounds like a good idea to keep this from happening again.
