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.

Oh I am liking the sound of this. I wonder if it will be as hard as the original.

By the way, can I as how you’re handling the translation?
It will be just as hard as the original but the extra content upps the challenge quite a bit. As for the text it will be ye olden middle-ages speech.
Lol sweet, I love Dragon Quest, so I hope this goes well! *Subbed* ^o^
Good, I liked the ye olden middle-ages speech. I wasn't keen on the DQ4 remake for the DS, because it was hard to understand what people were trying to say.
Hi, can you, in the future, makes a version with the current Dragon Quest name of Spell, like Frizz and etc, and japanese name of locations, items, and etc ? :)
That'd be really appreciate... ^^
Maybe in the future when I have nothing else to do. It might be in the final release but now way am I going back to change every Edrick to Roto as of now. Thanks for asking.
Wow:D This looks phenomenal! I've always loved a good Dragon Quest! Just one thing, don't you think that a menu like DQ has would be better?
Yeah, I can't quote you because I'm using a 3DS but
@Sierra
Yeah, i'm not that good with custom systems. Especially with 2k3. I'm planning one but i'd have to rework alot of events.
I just hope that the game lives up to its fans and the actual game.

The map graphics look really good! Are they rips? From Dragon Quest VI? Or did you draw them yourself?
@iddalai

Thanks and yes, most of the graphics are from Dragon Quest III and VI for the Super Nintendo. Some are edited and some are even drawn on microsoft paint. Thank goodness for Infarview.
Any clue when this will be done? I see target date, but perhaps a demo?
@bigtime

I wanted this game to be special when completed. Like an actual commercial game sort of. As of now the testers are the only ones who have gotten their hands on the 1.1b demo.

I really don't know if I'll make a demo for it. Hmmm... if I do it will be a random portion of the game though. I'll see what I can do.:D the third quarter of 2014 is a long wait huh?

Uuuuhh, Bro's fists of steel cut to the bone! :(
@Sabin1981

Whaddaya mean by ^
I just want to know, it's not you, it's me and my lack of jargon deciphering skills.
Sorry, FF7 quote xD Basically means the "Q3/2014 release" was like a devastating punch xD
@Sabin1981

That explains it. I've only played bits and pieces of FF7. I think I'll put together a little demo for y'all but the game itself on the demo will most likely be different than the 2014 release.
Yo, Ljink! If ya need any Dragon Quest info or help ya can always contact moi.
@JessicaAlbert13

Oh, hey Jessica, I'd really appreciate your help.

If you use paint then you should try iDraw3, it's really useful for pixel edit and better then paint on some aspects.

The game is looking good, good luck!
@iddalai

I've used iDraw3 for a short time and it was okay but for this game I mostly use the GameMaker 8 sprite editor. Thank you for supporting=D
