cic·a·trix/ˈsikəˌtriks/
Noun:
The scar of a healed wound.


In a world where a rare gene allows gifted individuals to manipulate the elements, one man seeks revenge for his upbringing and begins a journey of self destruction and revelation in order to find himself.

The Cicatrix stars Ephren, a young man scarred by his past and seeking a brighter future.

Introduction:
Firstly, welcome to my game profile!

The Cicatrix (formerly Hero I) is an amateur RPG currently being developed by Stedar with Enterbrain's Rpg maker 2003 (and with a little help from Cherry and his patches).

I don't think this game will "break the mold" just yet. But I hope that it will in the future (when it is completed). I have been working on this on and off over the course of many years and it (so far) has only had a few beta releases.

If you want to learn more about its history, please check out the Devlog here: (NOT updated recently)

Anticipated release date: 5/31/2011
-Released. There will be a new (and possibly FULL) beta release soon. HAH, ONLY TOOK YEARS

First Update in YEARS

It's been many, MANY, years since I started working on this game. I was just about ready with a Beta version several years back but always sort of felt it could have been much better with a bit more work. I lost a lot of steam when I decided to change the name of the game, many who were originally following it no longer knew where to find it and it made things quite confusing. In all honestly I'd like to change the name again as I'm no longer happy with it, but oh well. I haven't touched this in a long time but made some little polishes today in the hopes of releasing this as a Beta demo. It's got what amounts to probably a few hours of gameplay and enough of a taste that might satisfy those of you craving some oldschool Rpg Maker 2003 goodness. I mean, I hope it's goodness. I'm not expecting any major feedback but if you'd like to tell me your thoughts on it that would be awesome. I know I personally want to tweak the intro sequence, like, a lot. Please remember it's fairly old at this point. Just how old is it? Check out the blog I had for it originally when it was still titled Hero I: http://herothefirst.blogspot.com/ Wow. So if it seems corny or cringy to any extent (hopefully it won't, I tried to up my dialogue ante over the years) please remember it's almost 9 years old, and most of those were my teenage years (note: this doesn't have 9 years worth of work in it, my interest waned and waxed over time but it's definitely got a couple years in there). Enjoy guys.

keep at it. :)
I remember seeing this before on your blog site. Definitely looks interesting and you have some nice mapping skills. May want to post some battle shots though.

Anyway, I will definitely give this a download when it's up.

Thank you :]
Lol, I remember trying to google this game recently because I wanted to look at the screenshots. Now they're much easier to get to. Yaay! :DD
Lots of style here, looking forward to a beta.

damn son loooks brilliant!


Thanks! It's had a really unfortunately long development cycle for such a short little 2-3 hour demo, but hopefully it will be enjoyable.
Whoa, didn't notice the beta came out. I thought I'd give it a shot, but the game just up and closes on me after selecting whether or not to view the intro. (That is, both choices kill the game, but saying no gives a "two days earlier..." before closing.)
That's odd.. I haven't had anyone say that before. Can you play other rm2k3 games alright?
Yeah, never seen anything like this before.

Did you by any chance try re-downloading it? Other than that I can't think of what would be the problem.

Is there even an error message at all?
I was thinking about doing a review but I got tangled up in spriting again, but I will say this one of the most promising games out there. I have a grudge with a some of the corny dialog, but you have a real masterpiece in the works man. Keep working, I'll try to advertise this game a little because it deserves it. Lastly Im guessing is DHM is helping you out you got a good mentor so keep at it, wanna see this game done.
Yeah, a lot of the dialog needs revamping. I'm working on it. I suppose you could say that DHM is like a mentor--I have gotten a lot of inspiration from him!

Thank you for the support!
"Ephren"......why does that sound so familiar?

Dunno. As far as I know it hasn't been used in any popular videogames. I chose it for that very reason. I sure hope no one else has used it D:
This is interesting, man. Well done.
