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.

Sorry there, didn't see your post.


It's all cool. As for different versions, there's always going to be people looking for different ones.
Rooting for you. You got one of the best looking DQ games so far on here. I remember this one huge ambitious group back in the old days that they tried to make a DQIV type game, but something happened (was it called Dragon Quest Renaissance? Been so long..can't remember). Hopefully yours won't share the same fate.

Thanks for the support. But you shouldn't worry at all. I remember DQIV: Renaissance actually. Way before I knew about RPG Maker.

I was actually going to save this info for a blog but for now I will say that Dragon Quest + will not be using the RPG Maker Battle System or Item shops. I'm utilizing the actual formulas and algorithms from the SNES games for battles and will be making the system through events.

Dragon Quest + was originally going to be released between Christmas and New Year's but I wanted this game to be as authentic as I could make it. This obviously pushed the game about 6-7 months back as of now. I appreciate the continued support and I promise to deliver this game within the next year. It won't be a lost cause.

I got it. I'll get back with you about the translation and testing around Friday. University just started back up so I literally have no time to do a decent reply at the moment. I'll talk with you soon lordpsaro.

I accidentally read the date updated instead of the completion date....

Keep up the good work.
Hello ! it nice projet dragon quest ^^
I like the picture and encourage you to continue just for final version.
Good luck ^^'
So I was wondering about this for awhile, but I didn't know the hero actually had his helmet off in a spin-off title..so that explains the Blonde hair he has.

Yeah. Originally, the hero would have to gain the legendary armor before donning the helmet and other armors. But due to limitations on the NES, it couldn't be done. So the hero, Kenshin in the Dragon Quest TV Plug n' Play title, is the hero of Dragon Quest 1. So yes, that explains the blonde hair.
Just found this game through your profile and already love it. Subscribed! Can't wait to play this beautiful game. ^o^

You alive?


Yeah, I'm alive, lol. Well, sorta. I ran into a couple of health issues that prevent me from working on the computer as long as I have, this has affected college and this game sadly. I REALLY want to work more on it more, but as of now I can't.

I hope you can understand :-P

"But it didn't work"

But hey, though! I'm sorry I've kept everyone waiting...without any updates. I've been working on the game very slowly, as still my eyes die if I look at a screen for too long. Even on low light settings they feel like they're burning.

Dragon Quest XI comes out next week and I probably can't even enjoy it. I've gotta wait for my insurance to get reinstated so I can get my eyes checked out and continue this game like I want to. In the meantime, there is a demo up which is essentially the entire game remade, but yes it's still incomplete.

Again, to everyone that is interested in this product I'm sorry for how it has slowed down, but it is my intent to finish it.

Your eyes are far more important than a good game.
I'm happy nothing too crazy happened to you, that was a bit concerning.

Also seems like you might be becoming sensitive to Blue Light which most computer screens produce, and there is actually a filter you can get (I remember a co-worker of mine telling me this that was for OSX devices, might be possible that Laptops/desktops have that option too). Hopefully your condition will be reversible, and when you do come back I suggest you start wearing protective lenses or for the sake of your health in general you can have a trusted friend help you out with your game.

If the project dropped all together is fine too, your health is more important.
