Hi

To anyone who still remembers this project... hello. It has been some time. I'd like to first thank those who personally reached out to me about this project's status during these years and I'm sorry for not responding to your messages. To be completely honest so much started happening around 2018 and it snowballed from there. And even now I'm not completely sure about my own health status but I digress. I'm sure everyone has their own struggles.

Anyway, this is about the status of this project and how I honestly feel about it. So, I was alerted to the fact that the download link was broken. That was odd to me. It's on Google Drive and I could download it just fine. But today I took the time to go through my Drive and saw that there was a flag icon next to the file. I reached out to Google and they informed me that the file had been taken down for legal reasons.

"This item was taken down for legal reasons and cannot be appealed."

This was news to me. If I had to guess maybe it was DMCA'd automatically by Google. I don't know. But here's the new link if anyone still wants it. The actual homepage download link was also updated. Sorry about that.

As for the development of the game itself. I know I kept saying that I would finish the game. And I really wanted to at the time and to an extent I still want to complete it. But truth be told I pulled it up in the editor and I don't know what the heck is even going on with all the mangled Frankenstein bits of common events that make it work. Even the comments I left in there to explain why things happened are dumb. I really don't remember how much of it works.

In addition to this, I'm honestly just trying to get my life together and be a normal functioning adult. I've faced a few setbacks (I'm sure we all have during this time), mentally and physically that made me realize just how fragile life can be and how much of it I've wasted.

Lastly, I'm sure those of you who've been following gaming news know that Dragon Quest 1-3 are being remade in the HD-2D engine. I started this project to create the best version of Dragon Quest 1 you could play and I'm certain that the HD-2D Remake will make that statement irrelevant. I know when I'm beaten so I try to pivot to something else.

With all that being said, I would truly like to at least tie up loose ends and release a cohesive project without all the random extra content but I'm not going to promise anything anymore. My promises in the past obviously have held no weight to them and ultimately disappointed a lot of people.

As of now the project will be put on Hiatus and I'll let you know if anything changes. Until then, take care of yourselves. And take care of each other.

It'll be a while. Still working on a benchmark for the demo this year. I don't know where to stop yet. The game is also going under item reworking for the CMS.
Hiya, just wondering how the game is going. I'm really looking forward to the time when this game is complete and so is my brother. I saw the release date is set for late 2014, that's quite a long wait especially since the demo seemed complete to me. What's adding all that time? Sorry if I seem a bit impatient.

In short, life is stopping the game's progress. Like I said I could have released the game last August but then all kinds of things started happening and I had new ideas that I wanted in the game that would inevitably take alot of time to incorporate. This is the very reason why Where Only Dreams Can Take You got cancelled. It was too large of a game for me to even think about completing with everything else I have to do. So I hope you can wait til then.
I doubt you've given up on the project yet (I know mine have year+ long hiatus' and shit) but I REALLY REALLY wanna see what you've done with this remake, I love the original dq and have been wanting to remake it myself for ages but never had time. If you're not cool with uploading an unfinished project can you PM me a link to what you got so far? thanks!
You mentioned this newest being close to the...when is the end and is it worth playing now or wait?
Suddenly my guy is going incredibly fast even if I have him on slow. Also when you use the inn in Kol it freezes. The colors are so vibrant that it is often difficult to navigate...things ten do soften and are hard to distinguish where something atarts and ends. Also the encounter rate is insane...I mean really buddy! I know later you get a spell or can buy items to keep enemies away but man along with the insane color scheme and incredible speed and encounter rate...its becoming very hard to keep going without getting so frustrated you just want to quit.

That kol thing was fixed a while ago in my version. I think the encounter rate is pretty darn close tho the Dragon Quest encounter rates. I've tried to mimic the encounter rate from DQ1 but if it's too hard then I'll try to knock the level down a bit. Some of the coloring, I think, is just fine. I understand a few like maybe the town but the overworld and Kol are just fine to me. Dragon Quest is a really colorful game and I'm trying to incorporate that. I will try to find that sweet spot between now and then.
Hard to do...dont get me wrong buddy...I love the twists and turns. Ive been testing with you for awhile. I LIKE the color, it brings it to life, its just a bit...um...vivid. Can you fix that speed? Also and to be honest I forget but think its in Garinham dungeon. One of the spots you get a medal you can get over and over. I tried and got 99 although the medal guy says you can get 120 for a helmet and money...The count stops at 99 though so I dont know if thats going to cause problems. Also go to a shop and click something say half plate. Whether you have the money or not, he gives it to you forever BUT you dont get any store credits.

Next....in Rimuldar, I have enough money for Erdricks Armor and he says I have it but it doesnt show up in the inventory so it cant be worn. South of Rimuldar at the shrine as you enter the game crashes.

In the field area south of Hauksness I used a bookmark but it keeps repeating do I want to save etc etc on a roll over and over.

Store credit is being ocmpromised right not. I'm not sure if I'll completely use it or not because the extra quest is being much more limited than it was expected to be. The speed will be fixed, I haven't fully implemented Mini Medals but with the David Patch I should be able to use 120. The original idea was to include 2 Mini Medal items since the 99 limit was there. Where's that helmet? I've been constantly playing the game and finishing it. Haven't seen the plate thing. Could you tell me where it is? The Medal was for testing purposes but I forgot to take it out. There should be an event that gives you max money too. Just forgot to take them out. I'm working on both this and I Miss You right now so I'll get around to it.
I added to this post above but you had already replied...did you get it anyway about the repeating save etc?

Not at the moment, I kind of wanted it to release once only. I really don't know if it'll release or not. The game is finished but I'm not proud of it anymore. That's not to say that it isn't of quality but I am working on something, much better, I think.

Come on, do it for the fans, do it for the testers...

Do it for the makerscore...

Seriously, this game looks really good and you clearly know the material you're working with.

That always haunts me. I've been working on this for some time and to not release it would hurt me inside. But again, there's a lot going through my head. I've even considered starting over as I've learned how to properly develop a game(for 2k3) now.

I say just take the blow and wrap it up. I think everyone will be more impressed by your ability to finish a game by the end of it all.

Hardy har, har. What can I say, I used to bite off more than I could chew. With all the feedback, I'm currently polishing the game up a bit. The game itself is finished but the extras are all in mid development still. There was just no reason for them in such a remake but back in 2012, I was just trying to see how far I could go. I know my limits much more now.

EDIT: I really should have released this for Release Something XIII but I didn't get around to it. That would have helped me decide the remaining direction for the game.

Sorry there, didn't see your post. I just spent the entirety of the day polishing up the game a bit. I didn't know people would still be on board even though there's a perfectly good port on android and ios. But, I guess I have some real fans on my hands. This game is coming by the end of the year. Everything won't be in it but it will be finished.

By that, I mean, all the insane ideas I was coming up with for my first game, I was simply...insane. I thought I could implement the ideas, and in some cases, I did. But overall, the game will be much more compact with 1 bonus dungeon. I kinda feel bad for letting this game set in the corner for so long. Trust me on this, I'll deliver this in the upcoming months.
