One year already?



Hard to believe more than a year has gone past when this pet project of mine was finally completed. But it passed the 5K download mark in combined DLs, so that has made me quite happy. =) Even though it hasn't quite reached the popularity of say, Star Stealing Prince or Lunar Wish.

Funnily enough, all three featured games for December for the years 2012 ( SSP ), 2013 ( LW ) and 2014 ( Enelysion ) were made in VX, a nice little hat-trick, considering the engine is normally seen as the weakest of the modern RM engines ( XP, VX/Ace, MV ).

I've been thinking about patching this game one last time ( with the patches included, unlike the current version that's available; the patch is a separate DL ) before I can lay it to rest. Though I'm not too sure if I should include some bonus content to celebrate the game's one-year release, or tweak the writing or, I dunno. Something that will enhance the overall experience of this project, rather than just let the player feel like they're playing a rehash. Maybe I can include a bonus dungeon that allows Laine and co. to battle all the previous bosses in the game, but beefed-up versions of them ( Oh the horror! Imagine how nasty Avinchii would be! ). Justified really, since your mighty party should be around Level 25+ by then, aka Endgame level.

Maybe extra weapons/armours, extra loot, the usual stuff that will give players an incentive to play through the game again. Or even throw in a mini side-quest where I've hidden about 50 'mini-doubloons' throughout the game and can be traded at that one town to get awesome loot. ^^ Bonus tracks too, since I know for a fact that the music in Enelysion is one of it's strongest points, and one I'm very proud of.

Or a 'banter' option. Think Phantasy Star IV's Talk option.

Just any excuse to see that silly Siglud and his equally dry-humour friend Cillian talking nonsense with Laine and Pat. XD

Closing thought. Should I do some new artsies? ( I can do art, but my style doesn't suit a game like say, Tristian. I'd go for marimo's art-style for that particular game, but I don't think I can afford her ;_; ).


Because it's eeeeevil. Just kidding.

Of course, this is all 'in-between' stuff while I slave away at Tristian.

To be honest, a tweak to the dialogue and/or new art probably wouldn't be enough for me to play through it again. Though I still have a copy of the game on my hard drive, so I'd happily play through a bonus dungeon. Those changes sound good, but I feel like if you're not too sure what's needed, then the game is probably fine as it is. Just my two cents.
Yeah, I think the game is just fine the way it is. Unless you’re planning on adding a ton more stuff to it, such as more dungeons, secret bosses, extra cutscenes, additional endings and the sort, then it’s really not worth the hassle.

If you absolutely HAVE to go back to Enelysion in some form of capacity again, I’d much rather prefer you to do one of the side, spin-off titles, such as that one you were planning on doing for the IGMC some time ago or my brilliant, masterpiece of an idea in “The Misadventures Of Siglud And Cillian”. (Come on, Luchi, do it!!!)

And congrats on this game’s one year anniversary of getting completed! *lifts mug* Huzzah!

(I'd go for marimo's art-style for that particular game, but I don't think I can afford her ;_; ).

- Who needs to afford? You could always just kidnap her and hold her down for ransom. (“Draw my portraits, or else!”)

And if you decide to go this route, let me know so I can put off the playthrough I've been meaning to get to until all the new content is added.
Once I get a demo of Tristian out by early Jan next year, I'll start with the extra stuff. Custom art is out though because my Wacom was stolen. Out of my room of all places. >< I'm destined to be a mouse-user.
