Shattered Hourglass: Steam Version!



Hello everyone! Finally, after 8 long years, Shattered Hourglass is on Steam! Countless versions, bug fixes, trials and errors... oh also, remaking the game entirely has led me to this point. And we are starting a new adventure on Shattered Hourglass. So, what's the difference between this free version and Steam version?

- Achievements
- Autosaving feature unlike the free version
- Cloud saving, your .rvdata2 save files will be stored
- World Map Feature
- All notes and books now have different graphics, easy to read
- Keyboard support when writing on chest passwords and door passwords
- A new area that you can visit from Player House, also a new home upgrade
- Ability to continue even after getting a specific "Bad Ending", old players know that well
- Future updates will be here from now on, like new quests and graphical changes

My first plan is expanding the player house and making events for it. So, I already started to create a new adventure that starts on your Player House, which will lead you to very huge content. After all, you lovely people always want more content. :')

For anyone wants to check out the Steam version here's the link:

Have a wonderful day!

Shattered Hourglass: Final Version

After a year, my lazy butt finally bringing the full version!
You can finish the game with all endings right now. Now the ending count is 6 (Not counting the early bad endings) With this update Juliet gets a big boost with her attacking power.

Warning! Non-animated battlers version still needs to be uploaded...
Let's get into the patch;

ADDED
• Added Juliet's Home in the first world
• Added new cutscenes
• Added some extra quality of life stuff on the gameplay, like you can interact some unlit torches and lit them. (Kinda experimental stuff that I work on for the future patches)

CHANGES
• Holy Avatar is now 110% to 125 ATK, and 5 turns to 10 turns.
• Some Skill icons are changed
Added 4 True Endings (Bad and Neutral routes) which completes the game
• Juliet now learns Medium (level 20) and High Recovery (level 26) skills as Spellfencer. (new game only)
• Her Recovery skill now replaced with Double Tornado.
• Aura Blade now costs MP and attacks 2 times.
• Radiant Blade now costs MP and attacks 3 times.
• Fatal Stance is now 50 tp (was 75)
• You can continue the game after you finish it.
• Survival tonics now cost 30 and 300 (was 50 and 500)

FIXES

• Fixed that infamous missing Axe in the Lumberjack Camp
• Fixed an issue that Pearl quest can be taken once again.
• So many grammar fixes

Yeah, Shattered Hourglass is complete for now. I'm saying "for now" because there is always a room for improvement into it.

I hope you enjoy it.

Progress Report

Shattered Hourglass 1.0.0 (Kinda 0.9.9)

It's finally here! At least you can finish the game with your Good path save file (most players did that path). The other endings still need some finishing touches. Believe me, they will be so worth the wait.

So, there are 2 different endings for Good path, depending on if you've recruited Qual or not. I'm not going to spoil but the difference between recruiting or not is... MASSIVE. Upcoming Bad and Neutral endings will be super unique too.
(Don't tell anyone that I'm planning to make 4 different endings for Bad path and 2 different endings for Neutral path. Yup, a total of 8 very unique endings.)

Let's get into the patch, but make sure to download the right version!

If your battlers are not moving: https://rpgmaker.net/games/3996/downloads/3437/
If they are moving: https://rpgmaker.net/games/3996/downloads/3404/


ADDED

Added over 20 maps, most of them are for endings
2 unique endings for Good path!
Many graphics into Shattered Hourglass folder...
1 new song from Davey Brite RPG

CHANGES

Title screen has changed

FIXES

Silver Token Tablet now shows the right amount of Silver Tokens
One event that needs 2 catfishes now working as intended
Several grammar fixes

Since I'm so close to finishing Shattered Hourglass endings, I want to focus on the final areas and cutscenes from now on. Expect to get 1 or 2 more patches for Bad and Neutral endings. After that, I'm going to focus on improving the overall experience, new events to the player house and adding new cutscenes to old areas. Also, the quality of life stuff is on the way. Let's say... upcoming versions will be awesome!

I'm so happy that at least the Good Path is completed! I hope you enjoy it.

0.7.0: End of the Desert Dungeon & Start of Animated Battlers

Before I explain the new patch I want to showcase one of my friend's Let's Play on Shattered Hourglass! He's just started playing it and he's super clueless~
(Subscribe to him if you want to, he's awesome and has so many classic JRPG videos!)



Hello there, Time Travellers! This update fixes some things and at the same time breaks some things (not if you start a new save file).
From now on, if you want to continue your previous save files you'll need to download
THIS VERSION.
Because the Moghunter's Animated Battler script requires a fresh start. I'm sorry! :>

Also, the Egyptian dungeon (still couldn't find a name for it) has completed. You are free to go there with 15 house upgrades. It contains a great knowledge, which is very helpful for Duran. But only if you can outsmart the dungeon.

One last thing, thanks to Clangeddin, Somber, faroukrizki and granny steph for their feedback! <3


So let's start with what's added:

ADDED

3 new maps to the Egyptian dungeon
1 new map to the Post-game Ice Dungeon
2 new accessories
Battlers are now breathing (sorta)

FIXES

Players can no longer go to Lumberjack's pitch black dungeon after beating the game as the good ending (for a short time)
Leaving party members now unequips all of their stuff (prevents item loss)
Temporary Characters no longer equip Item Bag (prevents item loss)

GENERAL CHANGES

Intro cutscene is more serious and bloody...
Suan comes back to the party even more quickly in the pre Fire Lord battle
Grey Knight now has some MP, in case you want to equip it with Magic books
Duran's Time Stop is now 50TP (was 75)

TO DO LIST

Post-game content for Underground Ice dungeon
Post-game content for Qual's Village dungeon
