Secrets of the Light
Secrets of the Light is a traditional RPG inspired by a few old school classics such as Final Fantasy 1 and Dragon Warrior. It's also my first completed project, and has many flaws, but I've been told that it's not too shabby for a first game. If you're interested, read below for some more info.
Shade, an evil being who almost destroyed an entire world, was sealed away by a mysterious party. But now he has returned to the world that defied him to wreak havoc once again. No one knows his true identity, or his true motives, but most people have figured out that he's back, and the world is in danger once again because of his presence. So, who will stop him? As foretold by a prophecy, four heroes will emerge from the light when the evil one returns to defeat him and save the world. The prophecy comes true and four brave souls that come from seemingly no where are willing to fight Shade. Many rejoice at their courage, but some, who have surrendered their souls to Shade out of fear, will try to stop the heroes at all costs. To make matters worse, The island where Shade's fortress lies is surrounded by tall peaks and is unaccessible by foot or by boat. The heroes must rely on the help of some of the average people of the planet in order to reach their way to victory.
This game plays like many other RPGs. When you start the game, you'll be prompted to select a team of four out of eight classes. The classes are: Knight, Priestess, Magician, Elementalist, Ninja, Berserker, Beastmaster, and Monk. You'll have to choose wisely, since you can't change your party once you've chosen it. Once you've chosen and named your party, you're ready for adventure. While the gameplay might not be very complicated, battles use the DBS, and nothing may seem really new, I think the gameplay is tried and true and pretty fun. The game is quite challenging at times, also. You can't just barge into a new dungeon without preparing or you're toast. Bosses are no exception, either. So, if you like simple RPG fun, then you'll like this, but if you need complex mechanics, puzzles, and minigames, then you may find some, but not a lot.
