ReEvolution is a short game developed for Nagademo. Take up the role of Void, an amnesiac who has been taken in by a group of 'monster hunters' called Armada. But their initial upfront attitude quickly dissipates into something sinister- and there are questions at every corner.

Are you strong enough to cause a ReEvolution?

ReEvolution employs Press-Turn Battle with an emphasis on difficulty: making the wrong decision can be costly. For those familiar with it, Press Turn Battles were made notorious by several of the Shin Megami Tensei games.

ReEvolution is a direct sequel to ReCrisis, though there is a large gap in the timeline.

Countdown!

Alright, as you may see on the game profile, I've set the target completion date to be in two weeks, which is just before I leave for a holiday.

Now, that is MY target completion date, and the game probably won't be ready for release by then. Because the game is Press Turn Battle now a number of the fights have to be revised and there's still some kinks to iron out, though I've been doing my best to do it myself during testing.

Now, as to what's left:

-Proper Enemy set-up

-A small chunk of lead-up: the second half of a boss cutscene, the player parties reuniting and confronting the final boss, etc

-the ending itself

-polish/revision of how to get the Good and Bad endings so it's not dependent on one particular choice

-Final Boss's portrait set-up (I'm not planning on drawing her or her boss form myself)

-Test test test test test

Now from what I've played, my average playtime is about 3 hours. I do need more testing though, because I obviously know where items are and how to open locked doors.

I am going to be adding a branching section off of an area about 3/4 through the game, because it's right before a boss rush and there's no place to go level up if it's needed. I've found myself stuck there a couple of times (due to bugs as well as hard bosses, but what can you do besides try to fix 'em) and I hate the idea of a game requiring a total reset to be finished.

Other than that, the whole game is thoroughly planned out, I know what happens in both endings, I'm not really planning on adding any new skills though the skills currently implemented need alteration because, again, battle system switch, so certain things and trade-offs aren't working anymore. There's no wayward sections anymore (you can play the game up to where I've finished up eventing, for a while the game wasn't properly connected and couldn't be played all the way through).

After I finish ReEvolution I'm planning to work on a few other (short) titles with some different battle systems (I'm looking at an action RPG and a platformer) before I go back to working properly on ReCrisis. I DO recommend giving ReCrisis's current demo (and I may end up polishing and releasing Episode Zero proper before starting work on those other games) a whirl after playing this. It's a fun romp when you have foresight of where everyone ends up but you don't know how or why.

To leave off have a set of office cubicles I need to remap and a potential spoiler

If i only have you and your keyboard as you write that sorry blog on the end of the game...I should break you yesterday :D !!! I am more sadist :D
This is a wonderful diversion. I enjoyed learning the battle system used here, and I know there are a few tricks I haven't realized yet. However, I'm sorry to hear that this is all there is. The story could definitely be slowed down and filled in, making it more coherent. But I know that won't happen as the game is almost finished. What I will ask, then, is will there be a sequel? I want to be the monster that is still human in this world. I want to see the crew learn the truth behind the virus and the battle lines become blurred. I want to know what the mental difference is between those who've turned and those who haven't.
And as a further request, can that little girl from the hospital be part of it?

Good luck on the finish.

Kragak, although I don't really intend on making a sequel, the content in the final version pretty much follows up on what you want to know about the world.

Essentially, the Hospital scene, both in the version I'm working on and the current release, is the turning point for the rest of the game.

I'm rather hesitant about broadening ReEvolution because its roots lie in places they probably shouldn't and this will become more obvious the more expansive the game gets. I've tried to keep it as subtle as possible, and people with a good eye and who know me well will catch it if they're attentive, but it's very touch and go.

The game its interesting and well made, I liked it a lot can't wait to see how it continues ^^

The download is extremely different to the current version of the game, so it's been taken down for the mean time.
