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.

Woah, how come I've never seen this game? This looks like some good candy.

This was actually really cool! It definitely reminds me of old-school Ara Fell (in regards to the quality of production). If you're going to continue working on the project though Loot Cave has a lot of stutter (I'm assuming because of the fog etc.) - and the day/night system didn't really do anything for my experience other than irritate me, haha.


Thank you so much for taking the time to check it out! I'm glad you enjoyed it somewhat. I agree about the Day / night system. Pausing everything to switch it was super intrusive but at the time I couldn't think of another way to have certain NPCs switch in front of the player's eyes, you know?

Should I do more work on it I'll look into Loot Cave. Thanks :)

Hey man, grabbing it now!


Enjoy! Good or bad, be sure to let me know what you think. It's an old project so I'm not that attached, aka rip it a new asshole if you want. But I'm interested to see what people think of it.

Just came across this page, I'm loving what I'm seeing so far.

It's awesome as well to see another game of this stature being made with Rm2k3, subscribed for sure :)

Hi there, welcome! This was a game I started work on like 9 years ago. As time went by, life got busy, and my interests faded and changed.. it was hard to keep up. But the demo that I put up recently has a couple years' worth of work to enjoy. I hope you like it! If there's enough interest maybe I'll return to working on it, but for the time being it was Tau (poster above) that was interested in playing it so that's why I quickly polished a few things and got the demo back out :)

This game does look interesting, is it coming soon? Anyways you earned a sub.


Thanks guys! Glad you're excited! I can't wait to release it, sometime very soon of course. There really isn't much more to add to it, I just want a handful of friends to play it first. It's at the spot I was intending to end it at, the mechanics are just about there, etc. So very soon! Keep your eyes peeled haha.

"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:
"Ephren"......why does that sound so familiar?
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!
