Lord Zadigan has summoned the dreaded Tower of Venaitura from the depths of the Dark World of Radunga and is using it to spread his evil influence across the the land! He has dispatched his finest combatants, the Six Purveyors of Doom, to retrieve the only six artifacts capable of stopping him.

Summon four Champions from the Realm of Heroes and lead them across Tsufana on a journey to thwart the malevolent Lord of Monsterkind. Shall you banish Zadigan and his vile conjurings back to Radunga in a bid to restore peace to the world forevermore? Or will the forces of darkness at long last overthrow the realm of light?




In this harrowing tale of Good VS Evil, you'll assemble a party of Four Champions from TWELVE available Character Classes and lead them on an arduous journey to topple Lord Zadigan's forces. You'll conquer six distinct lands wrought with monsters and other nefarious ne'er-do-wells as you aim to destroy the Six Purveyors of Doom and end the misery brought in their wake.



As it has always been, my latest project has taken a page from Dragon Quest/Warrior's book and focuses on the journey more so than the destination. Each continent and island you'll visit while traversing the vast world of Tsufana is complete with its own self-contained tale involving one of Zadigan's Purveyors of Doom and a Heavenly Artifact.

"Venaitura" builds heavily upon what I attempted with both "Dragon Fantasy 2" and "Dragon Fantasy: Heroes of Tsufana". Unlike its predecessors however, you're given free reign over how to assemble your party; the "Hero" class is no longer mandatory! There's also slightly more focus on the story and character interaction/dialogue than my other "retro/classic" projects, but the adventure and exploration will (as always) be at the forefront.

Apologizing for the negligence

I seriously have to apologize to all of my subscribers here on RMN for neglecting to keep everyone in the loop regarding Venaitura's progress. These days I've been focusing on making quick posts to twitter or revealing a screenshot along with a small snippet of progress over on our Discord channel; oftentimes I just don't feel like I've got enough to warrant a large blog post or a substantial information dump on here.

Now? Well... let's just say that—with it being so long since I've actually posted something—I can now say with utmost certainty that 90% of the game has been completed! We're so very close to releasing the game. All that's truly left to work on is implementing the last handful of post-game dungeons, obtaining the final bits of commissioned art and music, then finally testing everything into oblivion. I truly want Venaitura to be my greatest project by far—by leaps and bounds; something to blow Chronicles of Tsufanubra and Heroes of Tsuana out of the water! And I have faith that we're going to do just that.

I'm hoping to get the steam page up and running in the next two months or so, and when that becomes a reality you can be certain that I'll let you all know! So fingers crossed.

Nice to see you back in the swing of things :P Looks like we're the only two people using RPG Maker 2000 in the year 2019 :P
Maybe this will be my last project using RPG Maker 2000. I wanted to go as retro as possible with this project, and there was nothing quite like the classic RM2K to make that possible! =B
How did I miss this?! If this is even just remotely as good as tsufana or tsufanubra, count me in. The non-generic class roles have my interest piqued too.

more rpgs need battle dogs
I'm hoping this project will absolutely blow Heroes of Tsufana out of the water! Also, if all goes well, we're hoping to go the commercial route. We've already got a pixel artist, so if a composer would just somehow fall into our laps that'd be absolutely fantastic. =O
Hopefully the experience will match (or surpass) how it looks in screenshots! Everything’s coming together quite wonderfully, I have to admit. Got some awesome people on board :D

Everything looks fantastic! In love with the graphics <3
He does have a fantastic style, doesn’t he? It reminds me of a fine blend between the NES and Gabeboy Color.
Yes! And Mirak's working on the background for this Game Page. Still a WIP, thus the, uh, super-dark text. =P

Stand back. Artist at work. I paint with enthusiasm if not with talent.

Dark text is no longer! Long live pretty gamepages!
PLACE HAS GONE ALL SUPER-STYLIN', YO! Mirak, you've done quite an outstanding job at making this page into something truly spectacular. Your efforts are greatly and truly appreciated! =D
I approve this game page so much because damn this game page is sick! I'll check the game out soon.
Mirak definitely has more than one creative bone in his body!

Also, the main download's been updated with some QOL lmprovements (like increased walking speed in towns and dungeons).
I gave up after 3 Huntsmen in the battle. LOL
Oh no?! You're supposed to show those punks that you're the GREATEST HUNTER(S) OF ALL TIME?!?!?
Slightly updated the demo, because apparently I forgot a few things along the way. I think I'll be catching things forever at this rate!
Congrats Ephiam, second place is not bad, not bad at all. You deserve it.
And the full thing will win something, of that I'm pretty sure.








evenifihavetorigitmyselfmuahahahahahaha
Thanks! Second is better than not making the list at all!

I'm hoping this baby's gonna be published by the time the next Misaos take place, though. =P
