Introduction

Natura is an Action RPG released in 2009 by the Spanish team J&L. It features a heavily modified version of Xiderowg's Action System, beautiful RTP-based maps with a fitting atmosphere and an exciting story. The Director's Cut version improves upon the original in many areas to deliver a smoother experience.

Natura is about 3-5 hours long. Its download is about 75mb.

Characters




Features

Script - ARPG System (Xiderowg + Edit) Single player based ARPG with weapons, secondary weapons, etc.

Script - Custom Message Script (Moghunter + Edit)

Engine - Sprinting (Original) Many engines allow the player to run when a particular key is pressed. The speed of the player is a custom, appropriate one (instead of the default 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6). It's part of the Stamina engine.

Engine - Stamina (Original) It shows the player's stamina. It is consumed when actions like attacking are performed. It recovers itself slowly when we don't do anything.

Engine - Akk's (Original) Automatically used objects that provide the player with some extra stamina. It is a very important factor in long battles.

Engine - A.I.D.'s (Original) A.I.D.'s (Akk Instantaneous Dispenser) are equipment that change the way Akks are used. Each one has a different purpose.

Engine - Suspicion (Original) At some point in the game, the player will have to go through an hostile environment without becoming too suspicious. If the suspicion bar is filled, the game will be over.

Engine - Custom Shop (Original)

Engine - Pull & Push (Original) The player can push and pull some objects in a realistic way.

Script - Max. Item limit (Moghunter)

Script - Custom Title Scene (Moghunter + Edit)

Script - Custom Menu (EOG + Metalero + Edit) A custom single player menu by EOG with edits by Metalero and us.

Engine - Conversations with portraits (Original) At some point during the game, conversations will be shown with pictures instead of text (with each character's drawing, too).

Doing this has been really difficult, for it is even trickier to work around an older project than doing things from scratch. However, I felt that it was necessary. Huge thanks to Archeia_Nessiah for her early review, which pointed out many issues that I attempted to correct.

Now it's time to get back to Natura 2...

Hello! Sorry for the very late reply! No, it's not possible. It's a small deception!

And I'm afraid that there are no other endings for Natura! I understand if you were left with a bittersweet taste.

Thanks for your kind words!

I cannot believe I hadn't logged in this website for so long to miss this review! I'm very grateful that you put such dedication into writing this.

A very fair and constructive criticism, and I'm very glad to hear that you enjoyed its story as much as we enjoyed coming up with it. I really hope I can pull everything together and finish Natura 2 in the future.

A question though; did you play the Director's Cut version, I assume?
Half of the game is too eyebreakingly dark. almost stopped playing because of this. BUT i'm glad i didn't because i would have missed out on a well-made game. the combat felt dynamic, if a bit clunky sometimes. the amount of save-points could have been balanced better, but i guess it's better to have a few too much than a few too less. Overall a very good game, that motivated me to keep playing. thanks for creating and submitting it.

Thank you SO much for letting us (me, these days) know. I'm very happy you were glad to have kept going and enjoyed it in the end.
I keep on getting this problem as an event appears of the main character entering the
Nest but it says I am missing an audio file.

Hi, I'm getting this bug after the game's introduction. I tried re-unpackaging it but I still keep getting it.

Exception message: Error de Script Message EX en la lĂ­nea 502 de tipo 'RGSSERROR'.
