NOW HIRING
I need somebody to co-develop the project with me, the requirements are:
1. MUST work with Photoshop (CS3 and above). I use overlays in all maps, and to be able to help me with mapping we need to be with the same tools. Help in map development is what I need the most at the moment.
2. I might need help with dialogues too, so being creative in that area and have a wide vocabulary sure helps.
3. You don't need to be a great scripter or eventer, but it would help of course.

Remember it is still WIP, so there might be errors despite all the beta testing, and a LOT will still change in the next releases, maybe even everything!







Last update: November 16th, 2010

- Teaser RELEASED, check download link and don't forget to give me feedback!

- Teaser almost complete, looking for beta testers.
- New screenshots, relatively official ones finally.
- New screenshots, finished intro and starting the actual game scenes.
- A couple new screenshots, about the battle system exchange member and a test mapping one about little characters.
- New Screenshots, finishing up many menu and battle scenes.



Upcoming Teaser

I am almost done with the Prologue of the game, containing a little of the content of game. It is short, but since it uses many of the making techniques I will be using whole game it is already a big step. Before actual release I want to "hire" 1 or 2 beta-testers, that would also help me with a little things I am still in doubt with. If one you are interested, please reply to this topic.
After beta-testing and some touches are made I will release it, maybe in about 1 week or 2. I don't like giving specific dates, lol, it is a hobby, not work.



Introduction

A Dust Tale is a project I am creating based on ideas i've had long ago. It is a little hard for me to create a short version of the story and put it here because everytime i tried it came out different than what actually will take place in the game. Anyway, I am putting a lot of work in order to make it very unique and interesting for an rpg maker game. The ideas, both for story and for gameplay are very much based in games and stories i've seen, such as Final Fantasy, Xenogears, and many more, but the mix of them and some details are my own, which create something new. I really expect people to see certain things and think "wow, just like in that game i loved" because that's exactly the feeling I get when i'm making it.
I consider myself sort of old-school when it comes to rpg maker, having used pretty much all versions of it for almost 10 years, with long hiatus of course. I am well aware there has always been preferences on people, such as the dispute VX - XP or Sideview BS - Action BS and I will always use the one that helps me best achieve what i'm looking for, don't count me into any "clubs" to worship one or the other.
The sci-fi theme is a little harder to create than the fantassy one, specially because of the availability of materials and even the game engine itself is geared towards fantasy settings, but i'm doing my best to keep it working, and whenever I need help I will ask around the forums.

You should divide all this information up into separate pages! Like one for characters, one for features, etc...

It will look nicer and be easier to read!
Progress and Requests

If i have anything to add I'll make sure to edit this field. About how the game is progressing or if i need to enlist some help.
Please comment on what you think about it, i know it is not much by now but, with all this time free i have lately... i'll make sure things get along fast.
Thanks for reading, btw ;D


Just so you know, thats what the handy blog is for.
This looks great! Did you make those tiles, or frankentile/edit them?
This look highly interesting! I wish you and your project the best :)
Looks pretty cool. Subscribed*
Very fascinating. I'll be keeping an eye on this.
Oooh, thanks for the tips about the website, i didn't know most of them lol. i'm new to this site and pretty much all others actually ;p I'll be sure to get everything totally organized as i go along adding more stuff ok?
And even more thanks to the compliments ;p
Sorry there isn't much to show yet, but i hope to keep it up in a steady rate

This game looks excellent, but has reminded me that I need to put a credits page up for my graphics.

Don't forget to mention KNight Blade: Howl of Kerobos and Kieara/SakuraPhoenix in your credits. Most of your edits are from those sources ;)
And Sithjester and Pickle for charactersets. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing how this game goes.

Absolutely lol, it's just hard to figure out who made everything because the material i have i scrapped from the internet from so many different sources (and so many years ago), i was aware of the name of sithjester and of the KNight blade game but thanks for telling me about kieara / sakuraphoenix. i'll be sure to incldue those.
The presentation makes me think this will be very good. It looks a lot like the kind of game I hoped would be made in this community.
Looking great, for all the reasons stated above. Also I read it as "A Duck Tale"
I know, the name barely makes sense. once i was going to write this project and i wrote it in a hurry like this, and it stuck. ive wanted to change it but,.. well, why would I? lol
This looks really nice =D

But... Wiegraf's red tattoo-thinger is mirrored from picture to sprite O.o That looks odd, you know.
meh those damn faces only show in the menu anyway lol i could mirror the sprite later tho but i'd rather focus on the scenes which take me quite a lot of work
