This is not a game, but multiple games in one project. I made these games a very long time ago, spanning from 1999-2002, so you could call them '╦ťclassics'. You could also call them a bunch of other things, but that wouldn't be very nice (although more accurate). Anyway, some are bad, some are just awful. I'll be restoring these to a more playable state over the next little while and releasing them here on this game page as they're completed. Here's a list of the games and what you can expect:

DRAGON CREED (Worst game ever)
The worst FULL game ever made. Not just by me, but by anyone. I had never even played a full RPG at the time I made this. I was 12, and I had just discovered the newly translated RM2K. In its current form, the game is playable, but awful. I've gone through it (somehow) and it is ready to go. Don't waste your time unless you're interested to see the worst complete (and LONG) project ever created.
Fun Fact: This game is pretty much 'switch-free' (minus a scene in the intro castle lol). Yeah, bad.

DRAGON CREED II (not much better)
Another full, long, bad game. I don't even remember making it, to be honest, but there it is, sitting in a folder in its entirety.
Fun Fact: Pretty sure there aren't any switches here either.

MEGAMAN RPG
I believe this was the first ever completed megaman rpg game ever. It sucks, but it had some decent story ideas that I carried over to a fanfic some years later. It has five levels. The ending is also pretty dire, but that's because I had planned to make two more after. Never happened. Never will.

BOTICADE
My pride and joy. Well, not this particular iteration. This game is merely the first version of a tale that has become my life's greatest work. I've been writing a novel on it for years now, and I'm extremely proud of it. What you'll find in this game, however, is nowhere near as great. It's still kinda fun, I must say myself, and you can find some cool mechs along the way. The characters all sound and act the same, and the dialogue is atrocious. For a 13 year old, it isn't too bad though.
Honestly, I may not release this one. I don't want people getting the wrong impression of the story from this very early iteration. If I were to remake it before the book got published, then I'd release it for fun... but as of right now I'm really not sure.

MOON CORE
An action battle system RPG. It's full, playable, and the battles are pretty frustrating. Each character has unique skills they can perform, and you can switch between them all throughout your quest. It suffers from a bad story though, and currently it doesn't really 'end' in the traditional sense (total cop out).
Fun Fact: This game had a (completely unrelated) sequel that was in the beginning stages. For some reason, it's still sitting in a folder waiting to be worked on. It won't be, but it's interesting nonetheless.

DRAGON CREED III (Demo)
This was destined to fail from the beginning. Once I was no longer under the delusion that the first two were good games, I stopped. Sadly, it has been deleted, and therefore cannot be released. However, I did manage to find the demo for the Dragon Creed 1 remake, so perhaps I'll release that instead.

BOTICADES (Demo)
A lengthy demo of the Boticade sequel. I quit working on this one because it started to seem like a Matrix rip-off. It takes place many years after the first game and features a new main character, with one returning. While I see this series as a trilogy, there just weren't enough fresh ideas to make continuing this project worthwhile. In terms of the novel, however, I have it completely planned out and it may even surpass the original novel in every way.
Fun Fact: I'll release it if I release the first game.

Moon Core on hold...

Long overdue announcement. This game is so buggy I don't even know what is going on in it at the point I'm at (in the playthrough). It's like being on some sort of hallucinogen while playing a game. I'm literally warping from map to map without so much as a text message to explain what's happening.

The reason behind this, of course, was that I had gotten completely sick of this game once I reached the halfway point of production, and got really lazy. That also explains why the game doesn't have an ending, or at least, not really. It has one of those cop out ones.

Anyways, I truly hope no one cares. You shouldn't, as it's just more beginner crap at its core. Still, I do hope to fix it up to a playable status some day.

Right now I'm going through my other old games for Slew of Oldies 2. I'm even planning of resurrecting a bunch of their gameplay elements for newer games, as the systems aren't as bad. Obviously I'm too busy with other projects to really delve into them now, but it's nice to have some weird systems in place for later.

These probably won't be ready for a little while, as Eden Legacy III is still my main focus. Once I'm completely finished with that they'll take no longer than a couple weeks each to fix them up.
Dude, looking forward to these.
lol you really shouldn't, unless you're really that curious to see how bad I was at this ten years back lol.

I honestly wouldn't mind seeing them in their original format to truly show how "bad" it was a decade ago.
Oh they will be, I just gotta make sure they're actually beatable. I didn't spend any time on balancing back then, so I have a feeling the boss battles are too hard. All my play throughs were cheats (or at least, that's what I'm guessing). But yes, bad of epic proportions lol
Yeah, DC was so bad it was... well, it was just bad. Played a few minutes into it before having to turn it off. Sorry, I know you warned me, but I think I'll stick with Eden Legacy.
hahaha yeah I'm not sure how I got through it myself. Hope it doesn't steer anyone away from my new games though lol. I made sure to only release the slew of oldies here with the appropriate warnings. Still, I'm hoping there is some enjoyment to be had from Moon Core and Boticade (if I decide to release it).

EDIT: I can't believe 44 ppl bothered to download DC so far. I feel pretty bad about it lol
Well, seeing how many bugs your old games have should prove to be interesting. Sorry I havn't been around to test the eden legacys after the first one. I finally got off the waiting list and into college, so i've been busy with that. Right now i'm off on my thanksgiving break. Who knows though, I think I might just download these for kicks.
Whoa! You're back! Awesome news! I heard about your basement flooding (or something to that effect, if I'm remembering correctly), so it's good to have ya back in the community. Congrats on college btw!

I'd recommend playing EL2 over these crappy oldies though :P (and EL3 is very close to being completed).

Well, it was my whole house, but things are coming along. Before I got into college, we were staying in the camper, and things have been coming along since then. I got me a nice new laptop (few months old now), which puts my old computer to shame.

I can see why you would lol. I tested it anyways, and i can tell the difference between now and then. The mapping sucked, battles were incredibly easy (though I didn't finish it, due to the lack of direction it gives you), not much to the scenes (and they occur more than once), as well as a cave area that crashed the game. I did however, abuse the continous 5 potion chest (even though I didn't need them) just for fun,
lol yep, terrible game in every way hahaha. So bad I couldn't even force myself through the sequel, so I'm sure it has even more problems. I'll probably fix Moon Core up a bit before releasing it though, so that at least one of these oldies is half decent.

You never played Lost Chapters then!

Haha, admittedly I haven't, but I can't wrap my mind around the idea of anything being worse than Dragon Creed lol.
I have just played Dragon Creed to the end in one sitting.

It was awesome (really). It gave me a nostalgic feeling, somehow, it has the essence of Persona 3 or Nocturne; but without the elements that those 'great' games have, elements that just serve the purpose of alluring the people to play, and cause apparent 'enjoyment'.

The best part was the writing, and the way how it had implications on the gameplay.
(Killing a princess without taking her life, priceless).

PD: I hate sarcasm, I am being serious here.
I have been playing Dragon Creed 2, but I cannot get out the island where Oaks appear (when I'm wearing the cocodrile suit). It seems that the tile that normally makes a vehicle to spawn isn't working.

So far, it is a good game. It has the kind of difficulty that today's RPGs seems to have forgotten (for example, if I hadn't spent all my money in potions in one of the first towns I couldn't had got though the part when you had to find the invisible aircraft, when you transform in a raft that cannot swim). The way the story is explained reminds me of Metal Gear Solid 2.

You beat it??? Your threshold for pain must be huge, and I would not want to face you in any sort of duel. lol congrats though. You're probably the first and only person to ever have ( or or will ever) beat that game. I even gave up die to the sheer level of grinding.

lol the difficulty is due to my laziness in balancing (a process which can't really be said to have taken place at any point in the development lol). I can check into the bug you mentioned, but I must warn you there are probably more along the way. I hadn't really expected people to play it past the first 5 minutes.

It was possible to finish the game without any grinding. The encounter rate was high enough. I leveled up mostly when I was trying to figure out what to do next.

In Dragon Crest 2, I leveled up from level 10 to level 23 when searching the invisible aircraft (that I had no clue I had to find).
I have fixed the island. Now I'm going to continue.

Another bug. After some exposition (about the parallel universes), I got stuck in the middle of the sea.
I suppose I should appear in the land that is nearby.

Fixed. I'm going to continue.
'Our town has been overpopulated, we're moving, sorry' BEST LINE EVER
For some reason these seem appealing to me. I'll have to give them a try! ;)
I have just finished Dragon Crest 2.

This game has the true essence of what a game should be, it goes beyond art.

Ultimo2: I have been sorely defeated...
Guargan: I'm sending you where no one can ever release you again, the fires of HELL!
Ultimo2: NNAAAAAAHHHHHH!
(Fire ensues)
'And so the elemental spirits were destroyed and peace spread once again through the world of Tihasho. The great Guargan and his loyal son Dariod ruled well as the king prince of Guargania. Ruker took his place where he belonged, right next to Dariond as his right hand troll. And the two universes were separated once again as it should be. In other words, they never heard from Gammin over again. The living stones either. And finally, Ultimo. He is dead. Gone forever. Erased from time. Peace is at hand.' (Then, you are given the chance to fight again).
