Ara Fell is Live!

All right people, it's been one hell of a ride. As of now, Ara Fell is live on Steam, Itchio and Humble Bundle. As people who have been following this game know, I've really done my best to make Ara Fell what it should have been to begin with.

I really want to thank everyone that helped make this possible, from Caladium and Charblar doing art and game design, to all our testers, and even just to people who have left a nice comment. All of it helps. This project wasn't easy to get through and everyone's support for this decade-old project has done so much for my moral. Seriously, thank you guys.

I don't know what a successful launch of Ara Fell will look like, but let's face it... this is an uphill battle. RPG Maker games have a bad reputation for a reason, and we're using a lot of old graphics on top of that. We're going to need all the help we can get to be a success. So, if you want to contribute to that more than buying the game, there are a few things you can do.

1) Buy it on Steam! We're hoping to make the "popular new releases" section on Steam. That'll get us a little more exposure. So while Steam takes a bigger cut than itchio or Humble, steam sales will help us the most right now. Naturally, if you prefer itchio or Humble, don't hesitate to purchase it there. But if it's all the same to you, Steam is the best place for us.

2) Tell your friends about this game! Have a couple of bucks laying around? Buy it for your friends! Every little bit helps, and while I'm not sure Ara Fell is really the kind of game that's going to go viral, the way games do go viral is by telling others.

3) Take the time to review the game, both on RMN and on Steam! So, certainly don't be dishonest in your reviews, but every positive review on Steam is going to help us out. If we can reach a the number and ratio of reviews needed to get "overwhelmingly positive" on Steam, that would really help. And don't discount how much RMN reviews will help too.

4) Write to other websites to cover and review Ara Fell. Convincing bigger sites to notice our little game won't be easy, but if they hear from people telling them it's worth paying attention to, they'll at least take a look. Just getting our foot in the door is all we need.

Well, I'm out of ideas. We've got everything riding on this, so here goes nothing.

And seriously. Thanks again, everyone.

YUSSSSSS!!!!
Congratulations, guys, and made props for sticking with this one for so long (never give up, yo!). If it does help, then I will buy it on Steam. I'm sure that the game will be a success, since most people who hate RM games aren't that familiar with the MACK/REFMAP graphics. What's more important than that, however, is the fact that you're good at using the graphics.

Can't wait to try this out! Cheers!
Success! I bought it on Steam, will be playing this weekend.

Now time for R3P to be complete, amirite?
We had a pretty solid opening day! I think R3P will likely happen at this rate.
