History: I started working on this game way, way back in 2001. I had a bunch of projects and wanted to actually finish one. Since then I have worked on it on and off when I had time. In 2003 I switched to Rpg maker 2003. in 2006 I finished it, but there were bugs and the sidequests weren't finished.
I don't think it's the best game ever made (that's AA2 :naughty:) but if you like games that don't take themselves too seriously like OMGZ final fantasy ripoff 9993984 then I think you'll like it. It's kinda like Earthbound. There aren't too many funny games out there anymore so I wanted to make a game that could be funny but still have good gameplay.

Story: The story is somewhat LOOSELY based on my life in high school. Most of the characters were my friends from high school and it takes place in my hometown of Aptos, California (though it looks nothing like it) located in the greater Santa Cruz "Archipelago". The year is 20XX, (okay, like 2003 if we're going by which of my classes are in the game :gwa:)
Nick is an ordinary high school student about to start his first day of a new semester. Meanwhile his family is kidnapped by a vengeful teacher. What begins as a quest to rescue them unfolds into an EPIC BATTLE TO SAVE THE WORLD. Yeah, it's cliche, but what do you expect, I was like 16 when I started making this.
Aptos Adventures 2 will have a way better story, instead it's an EPIC BATTLE TO SAVE THE UNIVERSE.

Still working on it. Thanks for the nice comments I found on the Internets here & elsewhere. Life got in the way for a while. Well I'm still working on AA1, 2, and the spinoff The Lodge (think of it as "Aptos Adventures: Gaiden".
Aptos Adventures 1 is 90& done.
Aptos Adventures 2 is 75% done.
The Lodge is 99& done.
Thanks for being patient.
Rpg Maker 2003 is my favorite, and I want to get my games working in newer versions of Windows. I don't really care that it's outdated lol I think it's the best one. Each iteration of Rpg Maker seems worse to me somehow.
But I digress, I think I'll put up the "Christmas Demo" so you can see the clay enemies and stuff I improved. Happy late Christmas lol this demo is from 2011.
You can also watch it on Youtube, with my sarcastic friend's commentary if you're into that sort of thing. :P

Thanks for your continued interest in my old games :)

This is a very good looking project. I am glad to see there is still a lot of talent taking old engines like RPG Maker 2003 seriously.

I can tell a lot of work went into this, cheers :thumbs.jpg:
Love the original. Can't wait to play this.
this is crazy :D I'm playing this !
This game is underappreciated. Where others try to break the cookie cutter mold by making original graphics, you do it with story (along with a good amount of graphics). I like this approach. To me, it's a little known gem, and a good selection for people who review games that don't already have one. I would just recommend that person doesn't expect a high level of polish and is prepared to experience some very strange things.

Did you reset this game or something? it says this game has 0 downloads.

I think a mod must have. Thanks for your kind words!
Any interest in my old game? I'd like to get it working for Windows 10, if you guys are interested still.
Yeah actually, would be nice to have an available download. Was wondering about these games a week ago.

Sure, but I want to work on it some more :) Please be patient I want to fix some issues some people had. I can put up the "Christmas tech demo" from 2011 if you'd like for the time being!
8 years later & I put up the 2011 Christmas demo, let me know what you think :P
Sweet, I forget if that was the version of the game I played or not. But much appreciated. I'm confused about both games, is the first being "remade" and the 2nd still under development?

AA1 is not being completely remade, I just want to work on it a little more before releasing it again. And I'm like 50% done with Aptos Adventures 2. The Lodge is like 99& done though I just need to fix the final boss.
dang, nostalgia blast. i played this way way back when i was learning to walk.
