Meteo Chronicles has finally been released!

On November 1st, 2019, I began this long, long journey to complete the game you now know as Meteo Chronicles. After many setbacks and many, MANY delays, I am pleased to announce that the full, complete version of Meteo Chronicles is finally here! Thank you for all of your support. I couldn't have done it without any of you. more than a year and a half has passed since then, and I have worked extremely hard every day on my greatest project so far. I've certainly come a long way since Zero Gear Fighters, haven't I?

Now, you may be asking, what's next? Well, you might already know this, but Meteo Chronicles is but one part in a massive series I'm creating called "Chronicles of Chronicles." Two sequels are planned, Zero Gear Chronicles, a reboot of Zero Gear Fighters, and Ebony Chronicles, a reboot of Dragon Ascension. I also plan to create significant DLC for Meteo Chronicles, adding in new dungeons, bosses, and even entirely new ending routes. Each DLC will be $1 each and will only be available on Itch.io, so check me out there if you want to get some bonus content for Meteo Chronicles for an extremely cheap price. All DLC is planned to release before the end of 2021, though knowing me they might get delayed a decent amount so don't count of them releasing before the end of the year.

Before I start work on Zero Gear Chronicles, another massive project, I would like to go back a few years and make a remaster of the previous game before Meteo Chronicles, Crypt Challenge DX. I originally wanted to make a 2.0 overhaul update, but with a new engine coming out along with a whole slue of cool plugins exclusive to it, I have decided to make a from-the-ground-up remaster instead a simple update. Another major reason for this choice was the the remake Crypt Challenge DX was heavily rushed to get it out before Halloween, (I made it in less than 2 weeks) and the original Crypt Challenge was even more rushed. I literally made it in 3 hours, so both version seriously need to be brushed up, especially since Crypt Challenge DX is canon, but has some major lore inconsistencies that would need a whole new version to fix.

This new game will be called "Meteo Chronicles Epilogue: Crypt Challenge EX" and will be made in RPG Maker MZ using the Bravely Default battle system. (what I originally envisioned for DX) After that I will work on Zero Gear Chronicles, and then Ebony Chronicles after that.

After that's done, I have a couple choices on what to work on next. I currently have planned a visual novel/strategy/RPG hybrid game and it's sequel which is a full-on SRPG made in SRPG Engine, an action RPG platformer metroidvania which is planned to be my "magnum opis," a episodic comic-book style RPG, another SRPG loosely based on the webcomic Sonichu, two sci-fi metroidvanias, a shape-shifter metroidvania, a MegaMan fangame, a MegaMan X clone with a constant time limit, a Terraria RPG fangame, an RPG Adaptation of the Sonic series, (namely Adventure 1 to 06) a boss-rush RPG, and a 3D post-apocalyptic fantasy crossover action RPG.

Here is a changelog for 1.0 I hope you enjoy Meteo Chronicles to it's fullest!
