Horror RPG, winner of the 2005 Misao for Best Atmosphere.
You and two friends find yourselves lost in the woods one day and decide to seek refuge in a nearby mansion. Certainly nothing could go wrong; people do that sort of thing all the time, don't they? But what you are about to discover is that this is no ordinary mansion, and its inhabitants are no ordinary people... Welcome to The Longing Ribbon. (Not Rocky Horror.)

This RPG is also available in French, translated by Z-Master: http://www.rpg-maker.fr/index.php?page=forum&id=4544&deb=fin

A feature! Why thank you. And this game is only 5 years old now! ^_^ Thanks to everyone who has given reviews and feedback over the years. Seems like ages since the day I Frankensprited the RTP villager girl's head onto Britt Brady's trenchcoat boy. I'd be the first to agree that the quality of this game goes downhill after chapter 5. For the first time, I'll admit publicly that I made it up as I went along and also I think the ending boss is lame. But it was a question of either finishing the game shoddily, or not finishing it at all. However, I remain unrepentant about the "waterfall" area. You have to remember Don Miguel to understand. It is a tribute to him. Thanks again!

Hello. Yes, there is an RM2K font fix: http://www.indiedb.com/games/the-sewers/downloads/rpg-maker-2000-font-patch

It's a problem with all RM2K games.


Awesome! Thank you!
Wow, this was made with RM2000? I'm curious to see how a horror game unfolds in an old engine. It looks great! :D

Not sure if this thread is monitored anymore, but if so... is there anyway at all to change the font? I can't read the blocky style at all, and really want to play but not being able to read the text is a major roadblock lol. Thanks!
I think it's possible, I saw a let's player played this game with a better font.. But I don't know how.

Yes, it was a secret ending just to be silly. :)

This project is so old that I can make no promises about the quality of it.

The grand twist with Reschen is that she wanted the Ribbon too just like Darxyll. So she ended the conversation without answering.


l`m not really question about quality, i know any game made from this software can`t be as good as nowadays games, i have interest on this 'bit-pixel' like game from the start. that why i roaming around on this site. there are many awesome story and gameplay style here.

only, is this game battle system is difficult and challenging.

OIc, the ending is just simple as that .... haha

Spoiler
when i go back into the cave after the last boss, Luke revived and become someone else and have to fight him, then there a happy ending to the game. is the secret ending made for fun, and hope to surprise the players?

Hi Rinoa. This project is so old that I can make no promises about the quality of it. I'm glad you used the walkthrough at least to get to the end.

Unheal is basically to be used immediately after an enemy heal, and it "undoes" the effect of their healing.

The grand twist with Reschen is that she wanted the Ribbon too just like Darxyll. So she ended the conversation without answering.
What happen to Rensen at the End?
i don`t understand

Spoiler
how does 'unheal' works? does it auto activate after the boss heal?

i change to improve DEF on the last sink ( result to DEF 40% ) and fight the Last boss without 'unheal' .
i able to defeat it even without 'unheal'.
i just started to know this game from google search on someone blog.
played it for a few days.

the RPG style is really interesting, and the story is tempting.

although is annoying as i played through because of keep losing the battle while need to replay all chapter to reallocate the stats.

Spoiler
Most annoying part are the bats and random furniture pop up.

BUT, it still keep me interest to continue playing, eventhough i give up a few time, after next day, i feel like continue again.

BUt still, the battle system has make the game more interesting and unique.

And, you didn`t mention in walkthrough about the Secret BOSS, which i find out on the first time i kill the Last Boss.

i don`t know much about Piano, so i need to randomly click all the note to solve the puzzle.

i tried to follow your walkthrough on what to learn first, but i couldn`t beat SARA and have to been through those random pop up many time....so i ignore the 2nd/atk and continue on the route focusing on 'Rage'. lastly, learn 'unheal' on the last Sink.

MY stat when i beat the last boss...
HP:135 MP:130 ATK:200% DEF:30% Heal:90HP Rage:20HP Unheal Rage/Weapon

The Secret boss is so much Easier.

I don't know, it was quite a while ago. A year or so I think. Then for quite a while it sat unfinished because I was missing some sound effects and stuff.
I'm curious, how long were you making this game?

Spoiler question
I still don't understand why Reschen(i think?) was gone when they were talking in the end of the game. Did Reschen actually take Jeannine's body or somethin' ?

Yes, basically. She is all high and mighty over Darxyll wanting the ribbon but then she just wanted it too!

You can make all battles skippable by inputting a top secret code. I think it's choosing "End Game > No" five times in a row without taking a step on the map. It says in the Readme.
I Thought is is a Game without Battle because here was it nowhere mentioned.
But in the Readme it says there a Battles. So I don't want to Play it.
Because I don't like battles much. :(
