"Well now, how did these little morsels make it so far
under their own power? I think I'll keep my eye on them."




Ill Will is a dungeon crawler with carefully crafted, minimalist story elements and simplified overall design. The combat uses a turn-based structure with a heavy emphasis on elemental affinities, and a streamlined AI routine for enemies that helps curb outright stupid behavoir.

It is very firmly divided between gameplay and plot, with decently-sized sessions of both, rather than a more rapid alternation.

Update ( 7/31/2012) - Completion

I'm marking this as being the 31st instead of the 1st, since I've been uploading since "yesterday".

Ill Will is complete. You can finish the story, choose either a normal New Game Plus (basically starting over) or a Strong New Game Plus (keep Traces, learned skills, and level, and re-allocate stats). Either way, you'll have access to additional story scenes, additions to existing scenes, and a very special something.

I might have a prize for the first person to beat the optional NG+ content. Of course, I might not.

I always loved how they did the glowing effects in this game.
I remember getting over the first battle before but on my new computer the first battle keeps overpowering me on every mode.

I think this is the only VX game I tried that I even liked. :/ Weird atmosphere but I find it pretty good...as long as I don't get lost in those holes! The endless battles!! Argh!!
Oh my God, I remember this steamy game. Was on fire at the time. Can't remember how it all broke down back then but I enjoyed playing what I did. I didn't get as far as I would have liked, game was so difficult but I will try it again. Might even have to review this masterpiece!

auto skipping dialog never a good move

nice avatars!
spiffy sprites too

should be able to skip intro, choices don't seem to matter outside of next line dialog anyway

stat menu should not be done after battles but anytime from the menu
further should be able to add and remove points and not need to spend every point

not my cup of tea,and despite how many people played this no one has a full lp of it. shame
recommend to...people who like rpgs with a ridiculous amount of skills and a story
that may or may not be worth sitting getting thru the battles for it

It really is a shame the developers seem to have abandoned this game. I believe LouisCyphre said something about releasing a bugfix patch like a year ago but it looks like nothing came of it. New Game+ is unplayable, too.


I agree, I really want to play it from the start, but then there's some missing components, come on guys, please fix it..

Don't bother playing this buggy game. A bug at the final boss prevented me from winning, and the game crashes at regular intervals during normal play. This game half-finished at best, and it shouldn't have been featured for anything -- except maybe on a list of how NOT to make games.
Keep your party members below half health and they won't be sleeplocked. This is mentioned absolutely nowhere except the status screen that no one seems to check.
It's a great game! I love playing it, however do you have any tips at beating the ice level boss, you know, the one that tries to put you to sleep?
Help or tips would be very much appreciated!

This.game.is.epic! I really loved the beautiful mapping and art, the characters, fast leveling up and esp. that ending with how all of them could still use their powers was a big plus!

Josephine = Boss: Seriously, she was the best character in this game for me, both for bosses as well as normal monsters. Also France was another great one, and Will himself was always handy (mostly used him for support skills and occasionally for some offensive spells). My team was Will (Lol, always) + Josephine (Always) + France (95% of times) These 3 rocked in battles.

Also the girls were my favs :p

9/10 for it, really loved it!

The zombies still have the bug where they cast str zone and attack immediately after, effectively making them almost impossible on Hard difficulty. Apparently this was supposed to be fixed but isn't? Can't really progress even past the first part of the game because of this.
First fight versus Zombie on normal difficulty. I guarded like 8 times and he used the skill every time and sometimes even though I guard I get a 18 dmg hit. Trying 3 times now to survive this fight and every time I have to watch the full cutszene, which is reeeally annoying. First fight for me not beatable...either Im unlucky or too dumb, but either way; the cutszene befor the first fight and no option to save made me uninstall this game. Just giving some feedback. Maybe you will do it a little bit different next game or just ignore this, whatever...

LouisCyphre, Archeia_Nessiah, and Happy: I hope you do realize this; the last RPG Maker made games I actually played and liked was about 12 years ago. Rarely does an RPG catch my attention these days since almost all of them fall into a boring generic. You got me playing a total of 3 hours so far, when playing others I download in free time, I last for literally 5 minutes after seeing flaw after flaw. Though I am critical since I'm an artist myself, I consider Ill Will on a higher caliber. I would like to see more games similar to Ill Will since it's more believable and immersive, you have certainly provided a more creative story, characters, and game mechanics more that are identifiable. The funny thing is though I had similar ideas for a game myself, but you beat me to it.
Funny. I do not consider Ill Will to be a good game. It's gorgeous and it can be fun, but I think all three of us can do a lot better.


Good. Then continue on with the next game. I shall wait patiently.

rs? (It's just something I thought I saw) For example (France=Chie Satonaka) (Aaron= Yosuke Hanamura) (Ethan= Kanji Tatsumi) (etc.)

Again, I love the Game! Great Artwork and Battle System!

Nessy used the style because that's what she was playing at the time.

It's funny how Aaron is thought to be based on Yosuke when I based him on Souji.
BUT yeah, during Ill Will's time, I had a huge SMT/Persona fangirlism going on.

Hey there! I just wanted to let you guys know that I'm about half way through the game (Difficulty:Normal) and I'm loving almost everything about it! I will admit the first fight was difficult, but it was interesting. It wasn't until after I got to roughly level 20 (which really wasn't all that difficult) that the game started to become a little bit easier. I love the art and the idea of traces. I was just wondering, were the Characters faces based of some Persona 4 Characters? (It's just something I thought I saw) For example (France=Chie Satonaka) (Aaron= Yosuke Hanamura) (Ethan= Kanji Tatsumi) (etc.)

Again, I love the Game! Great Artwork and Battle System!
it keeps saying I'm missing certain files :/
