One rainy day in the industrialized port city of Dejanor, a mage named Moshi Cenalus leaves her dingy hotel room to buy something to eat. It was just a normal day for her, until she has a run-in with some local thieves.

Following that dangerous encounter, she befriends the woman who helped her fend off the attackers, and learns of a forest called "Last Sanctuary". It is rumored that the mages there live free from the scorn and oppression perpetuated by an influential order of clerics, who believe that mages are a danger to society.

While in search of the fabled Last Sanctuary, her journey crosses with those of the people she meets along the way. They come from a variety of backgrounds, from the impoverished worker who wishes for a better life, to a disgraced soldier seeking redemption, to a reclusive queen in the snowy north willing to sacrifice everything to save her country from the spread of industrialization.

Little did the mage know that her seemingly insignificant actions would, in the end, contribute to major changes in the people and places around her.

But would it be for better or for worse?

The Return

My last blog was...almost 3 years ago? Sorry about that :/
I gradually stopped coming by for a while because I had become too anxious to post anything, kind of lost interest in rpg maker after MV, and somehow wound up getting into the ME3 multiplayer and modding scene as some sort of makeshift exposure therapy. (Who knew that shitposting about turians was the key to get myself to talk to people again?) And there's been a user on here who has been ripping off a lot of my work in my absence and not stopping after being reported a long time ago, so that's pissed me off enough to return.

I've been refreshing myself with old notes to figure out where I was going, knocked out a bunch of old to-dos, and cut one scene because it was no longer needed. I'm also planning to reduce the scope further because some sidequests are a pain to test, and the light exploration I had in mind a long time ago no longer makes sense with the characters being forced to go into hiding due to plot reasons.

Looking at this project with fresh eyes, I realized that the status screen totally clashed with the other menus. Before, its description box was on the top and HP/FP was on the bottom, while the description in all other menu screens was on the bottom. But now they match! I also redrew Moshi's portrait to add more belts and make her look a little older.



After that, I drew a couple quick pieces of concept art for one of the oneiroi, an inhabitant of the astral plane/dream world. He already has a name and some dialogue implemented, but had no portrait until now.



I'm currently working on coloring his finalized waist-up ingame portrait which uses elements from the two drafts. Although he's not a party member, he'd be a major contributor to Moshi's storyline, moveset, and the title of the game as well.

It will! I'm planning on at least 3 so far.
Maybe more, if I feel inspired and don't burn myself out in the future

Ah ha! Your game is here. I found you on tumblr first and I had no idea where else the game was. Whoo, finally found it! :D Subbed definitely!

Ooooh, I knew I recognized your tumblr avatar from somewhere! Thanks! It honestly took a very long time for me to find the courage to post this here, hehe

It took me a while as well to post anything haha. But whoo! A better place to stalk your game on so I can make comments on the screenshots you post (on your tumblr you totally can't do that and I like leaving feedback ;^;.)
Quite pretty. Looking forward to it.
Looks pretty. Sadly the RSD demo freezes in the forest event after both the main character and the soldier head left to pursue the caravans or whatever NPCs where camping... check it out. And re-upload it.

Sorry about that, it's a seemingly random bug where the player's sprite sometimes gets stuck in a wall during the cutscene. I'll do some re-eventing and testing, then upload a new version soon.

edit: found it! the bug is caused by holding the shift key (which quickly advances dialogue) during that scene. a couple of move commands aren't set to wait, and skipping the dialogue apparently makes the game ignore some of the move commands.
I got so excited and then found out it's a demo. Any ETA? This game is absolutely and stunningly BEAUTIFUL and it looks really innovative. I want more (and honestly, I'd even considering paying to play this game. It looks so professional)!

Hi there! I currently don't have a set date for a full version, because I've been fixing bugs, revamping old maps, adding optional content, and making sure the gameplay works well. I hope to have a longer demo out within this month, though!
There is a major problem with the movement part of the event going on in the first scene map of the forest. You need to fix it and re-upload it... people won't be able to fix that on their own unless they have an unencrypted copy. Also, the teleport event from the previous map is on the left side, which should be on the center side... and when you open the game there is a message that says parallax bg "zodiac" is missing.
