Everlong is a FREE amateur fantasy game designed to capture the charm and cliche of the classic SNES JRPG. You are a Blackguard, a knight sworn to serve the Cirigoth Empire and trained in the dark arts, yet hunted by your imperial masters after turning renegade. Only through enlisting the aid of friends and allies can you escape pursuit and defeat the oppressive Cirigoth regime. Journey across the world's continents to forge a confederacy and fight for freedom in global war. Yet a more insidious plot looms in the shadows. A fallen god seeks to exploit civilization's folly and reclaim the dreams and nightmares of humanity.

The linear story of Everlong is accompanied by numerous side-quests. It also focuses heavily on puzzles, dialog, and battle strategy.

New Version 3.35

The downloads section has been updated with a new full version and patch. Mostly bug fixes, but the controller support is sweet for those of us using Xbox controllers with Windows (thanks to PepsiOtaku for that plugin). Here's the update notes:

Everlong v3.35 (2022.01.16):

Added controller / gamepad support with a DynRPG plugin
Shinryu skill Atomic Breath no longer scales with physical attack power; resulted in extreme damage when auto balance mode toggled ON
Restored conditions removal effect for certain healing skills on their final tier: Succor, Celerity, Chakra
Added message when recruiting Miyagi to explain EXP and Encounter scaling turns off
The first Altair battle no longer results in an instant victory if monster scaling is active; an HP reference was missing for this monster in the scaling code
Attempted to address boss battles being unintentionally skipped outside Story Mode if the control switch was somehow otherwise toggled
Attempted to restore possibly corrupted database value for Virtuoso items that prevented the player from equipping them
Corrected MAG+ value for Mystic Pendant accessory
Siren activated battle in Cerulean Silex and Ignis Castrum against Naga Archer no longer crashes due to null event page references
Keen Skill Scroll Blink now shows correct skill reference when queried with SHIFT

event script error when i try to enter a airship location for the first time. After having to watch that quite annoying scene where they all teleport onboard one after another.

This is a common but annoying engine bug. Simple fix is to either:

1) Land the airship on the world map, enter a location by walking, exit back to world map, fly airship
2) While flying the airship, leave the world map and enter the interior, then use the helm to return to world map
So umm how long is this game 4 hours or more like 30 something :)

I'm getting close to releasing the next (and probably last) rm2k3 version. With Dyn RPG, It'll have the clock plugin so we can finally measure the time to complete the game, but it's definitely closer to 30 hours than 4.
Hi umm i want to say something and plz PLZ people don't get mad at me but i can't not really i liked this game do to one issue i have with the game in fact do to it i only played 7 hours before saying screw it i can't take this anymore.
And that is the leveling in this game i get the maker wanted to make a rpg where grinding was not really a thing but the fact the game LOCKS you out of any battles after you reach some kind of level cap just really made me want to cry....ok maybe not cry but you know what i mean....you see i find it odd how the maker has a story mode but yet makes it so the levels are locked after you reach ____ level in some areas even in normal gameplay maybe some people like level caps but i hate them.
Anyway it would have been nice to have the option to stop random encounters with like a time or something that way people could play they way they want and not force us to play how they want the game to go.....Sorry if this sounds mean i'm just said that a game this good would take away something so fun as the ability to level up your heros anytime you want.
Hey, I totally agree. I did not like the level cap solution at all. At the time it was the best choice to balance the game, but I have good news.

I'm close to releasing another update, probably the last using RPG Maker 2003. It will correct this issue. The encounter rate still adjusts based on level, but never to zero. Experience received is reduced when the current party level exceeds the expected average, but also not to zero. This allows players to continue to level if necessary, while maintaining some semblance of balance.

Actually, I just had a thought I'd like to thank you for. I'll add an option that toggles encounter rate and experience adjustments. Then players like yourself can enjoy the game however they please! How does that sound?

Been a while since i have been here but that idea of giving a option for encounter rate sounds good but I'm not so sure about experience unless you mean something like having a difficulty setting and the harder the battles the more exp you get that sounds a little better IMO.
But really just having the ability to have battles on would be nice :)
Though I probably won't be releasing until next year, I've already made and tested the addition in the options menu to turn off encounter rate and experience scaling. The number of battles will neither increase or decreased based on level, and players earn the same amount of experience as always. If you gain excessive levels the game will no longer be challenging, but I'd rather enable players to enjoy themselves however they please.

I actually had monster scaling in mind as a separate addition to make New Game+ more interesting, or adjust the difficulty. It would work for everything except fixed damage skills, which is what monsters almost exclusively use. There's no Dynrpg plugin for such an adjustment that I know of.
Awesome

That's awesome! I hope your progress continues to go smoothly. can't wait until this definitive version comes out!
Is this game non-RTP? Or do I need to have RPG Maker 2k3?

All you have to do is download and install. The package has all necessary files.
Sweet. Will be downloading next time I get to Internet
awesome game! this, to me, is commercial grade! KUDOS to you! now, if there was some kind of help, to know what some of the things are and what some of the pictures that pop up at bottom of screen mean! but all in all, one of the best I've played in a long time.

Working on just that. If I get around to it in the next version, there will be a full help section available under the options menu, where only "Controls" currently exists.

Thanks for the kind words and support!
To the contrary on the level cap discussion; I just hit level 99 and am finding the game interminable now that I've also hit areas where that's insufficient to turn off encounters ;-;

In addition to letting players control experience and encounter rates, I'm also allowing story mode to be toggled anywhere, except bonus dungeons that are not completed. That way if players are tired of battles, they can just turn them off.

There are also new accessories if players want to increase encounter rates for leveling. The Bell Collar doubles rates, and the Whistle makes every step begin a battle. The menu will have an icon that changes color to reflect the rate.

The next blog post will also be about a new game function that will make battles beyond level 99 exceedingly worthwhile.
