After countless delays, memory wipes, rescripting and alterations, I have finally managed to finish my RPG Maker game! I personally am shocked that this day even came. Bloodsphere is my first RPG Maker game and it’s an “RTP Adventure!” with an epic plot and tons of gameplay! Yeah literally every project with those traits is dead in the water after their second demo. Instead of constantly starting over or giving up to make a new game, I trudged along because I really wanted to finish the game. I was considering having a closed beta before I uploaded the final version, but after seeing just how unreliable 99.9% of beta testers are in the rpg maker world I decided it would be better to just release it as is, and if there glitches and issues down the road I can fix them and upload newer versions. I have tested the shit out of the game by myself and with friends so I’m confident there won’t be any more glitches.

Well it has been a long and interesting road. I’ve learned _alot_ about RPG Maker working on this game. When I first started it a long ass time ago, my plan was to make an epic 20+ hour long RPG. When it comes to commercial games, I tend to prefer the long ass campaigns like Dragon Age to the 5 hour crap in the Call of Duty games, so I took this philosophy to RPG Maker. Only to find out late in production most people seem to prefer shorter RPG Maker games x_x. I will definitely not making my next game this long, but as long as some people play it to completion I guess my work wasn’t in vain.

What’s next for Alex898? With classes starting up again I want to take a break from RPG Maker for a little while. Maybe play some other peoples games and get inspiration, stuff like that. I have planned my next game a bit and I’m gonna use all the knowledge I got making Bloodsphere (and from people critiquing it) to make my next game really freaking great. That means custom graphics, non-random battles (I have already evented them the way I like so this is a guarantee), nonlinear game play, choice-driven plot, more character customization and a much wider variety of weapons and armors.

But what’s next for Bloodsphere you may ask? I can really take a second Bloodsphere game in either direction: A prequel or a sequel. I was thinking if I did return to Bloodsphere to do a game that does both: Basically it would be a two chapter game, chapter 1 would have you play as Karoes 20 years ago (the point of this chapter to further flesh out his character development and just what drove him to madness) and a sequel chapter that took place 30 years after Bloodsphere’s end which I won’t share any details in an effort to not spoil Bloodsphere’s plot for you :P. This is all just a ‘maybe’ right now cuz I do want to try something different and more original with my next RPG Maker game, but down the road there might be a little bit more Bloodsphere if people who beat the game decide they won’t even more plot exposition :-)

As for why the download link isn’t working right now, it still says it’s pending on the game management panel but once that’s done it will be up for you enjoyment. You may also notice the download is like 40mb or something big like that. That download includes the RTP files with it so people without them can play it. There is also another download without the RTP files for those of you that have them.

So without further adieu:

BLOODSPHERE: THE BEST COMPLETED RPG MAKER XP GAME RELEASED SO FAR IN 2011


Congratulations! I'll be playing it some time this week or perhaps over the weekend.
lol that was supposed to be a joke since I think this is the first RMXP game release this year.


I guess that technically means it's the worst RMXP Game so far this year as well.

ALL HAIL BLOODSPHERE: THE BEST COMPLETED RPG MAKER XP GAME RELEASED SO FAR IN 2011 :)

haha but seriously, I envy you: you have joined the "completed a game" club!
I know I can't believe it :O

And I look forward to you joining the club when you finish Legacy of the Guilds :D
just finished playing Bloodsphere in about 35 hours. this is a great game and i realy enjoyed it. you have your place near the amaranth and aldorlea games. well done and looking forwards to the sequel lol.
Hey thanks! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I'm working on some other projects right now (including a screenplay) so I'm taking a break from RPG Maker, but there may definetly be more Bloodsphere in the future.
Congratulations on finishing your first game ever. And I do agree that most beta testers are really unreliable. I mean, if you're going to stop or whatever, please tell me so I won't wait on you.

I was wondering how long it took you to make a 20 hour game?
Yeah, but thankfully since I've released it people have informed me of various bugs that I have been able to fix.

It took me 2 years, although I have a tendency to work on and off as opposed to working at a constant pace. There were a few months where I didn't even touch RPG Maker lol.
