In the ancient days, magic was a myth, a story told to frighten children and fleece fools out of their hard earned silver. Not all stories stay myths forever, though, and the world changed when a new moon appeared in the sky, bringing with it a very real power... and a very real cataclysm. From the ruins of the old orders arose new ones, who struggled against one another until a balance was found. Eventually, peace replaced war, and magic found a place in society outside the dark corners of the land.

Moonsong begins alongside great events which will undoubtedly change the world once more. Take control of a band of outcasts as they struggle to understand their role in the conflict and the scope of the perils which face them. From humble beginnings in the back country of a mighty kingdom, they will embark on an adventure that will take them all across the land- and through no shortage of danger- as they attempt to counter the growing darkness.


I started this project many years ago (perhaps a decade?), but it sat on a shelf for a very long time. Last fall I decided it was time to pick it up and dust it off, and in doing so I found the kernel of a promising project. Unfortunately, I'd done less work than I'd thought, but with my shearing scissors in hand a LOT of elbow grease I've gotten it up to a playable state: certainly worthy of a demo release. I've trimmed out the things that I could never finish, culled the story, and reined in my lofty, impossible ambitions to put together a short, atmospheric quest that I hope you'll all enjoy.

Key features include:
- Choose 3 of 6 characters to form your party.
- Each of the 6 can choose to change class later in the game, offering numerous combinations to suit your playstyle.
- 6 unique skilltrees (one for each character) which let you spend ability points earned from monsters however you like, letting you customize your party.
- A linear story with lots of exploration, with ample treasures to reward perceptive players.
- An interconnected world where every step is shown off in high-detail maps.
- A mix of custom, edited and ripped graphics that all work together to form a cohesive aesthetic.

I hope you'll all enjoy this project from yesteryear: it took a lot of work to revive it, but I think, in the end, you'll agree it was worth it.

Soon! Very soon, hopefully. It needs a lot of polishing, but it's currently playable... although I absolutely just got killed by an overpowered boss in my nth playthrough, so maybe not quite.

Screaming is an acceptable currency.

Haha, the classic feel might come from the fact that I believe I started this way back in 2010 originally before it was relegated to a long hiatus. I hope to resuscitate the glory days, if only for an hour or two.
I know a thing or two about shelving stuff so the only thing I can say, please don't give up, as this looks really promising.

No worry of me giving up! I almost gave up on it a long time ago, but it's back now and very close to completion.
Kaempfer, you sleaze! When did you sneak this onto RMN? I am hugely interested in this. Finish it!
And Evoker too. Slacking will not be tolerated.

It's pretty much already finished, albeit a bit janky. I'm just completing my alpha test and then I'll do a closed alpha and then it'll be released.
