It took me some experimenting but I managed to 1-shot the boss on turn two. How you organize your party greatly affects your output. Some are more fun than others but I do like instakilling most monsters in the game.
Well, that killed some time!

Taking a break for now, but far from done with this. Just beat the Infernal Machine, went North and encountered... big, scary, blue guy...

*ran*
I really like this game. No bullshit with big, boring, overused storyline and unnecessary NPC's and dialogues. Just straightforward, dungeon exploring combat with excellent combat mechanic and great art and music. Every monster fight is a challenge, as I always imagined it should be in RPG's, unlike all those meaningless (and sometimes annoying) encounters in FF style games. The atmosphere was so intense that it kept me playing till I finished the game in one big gulp. Love it!
i went to play the game but it would look like it would work then the game woud stay black and a pop-up would come and say "could not find VL Gothic Font" and the fisrt time i downloaded this that didnt happen and i was able to play. but i guess one of the kids got on and deleted something so i deleted the entier game then went to re-download it. after i did it would keep saying "could not find VL Gothic Font" and i did the process of deleting it and re-downloading it a few more times. is it a mess up in the download or is this a glitch? im realy wanting to play this game but i guess it doesnt want me to. is there a way you could fix this Craze?
Check the game folder. It should have the font file (VL Gothic) that you require. All you have to do is transplant that font from the game folder to wherever it is you keep your font files.

Unfortunately, the issue isn't on Craze's end, but it should be simple enough to resolve.
i have looked through all my downloaded game files and everything but i cant find the Vl Gothic font at all every tme i look and its realy bugging me
im keep wondering if it is even downloading anymore ( the font i mean)
I figured it out by watching the playthrough.
Thoroughly enjoyed this game. At first I was thinking, "What in the world? I'm just walking around killing random entities." After a while I got it, and then I couldn't stop!

I'm more used to big stories with lots of side quests, but soon I saw the beauty of this game - developing strategies for the battles, and winning items that would help me in battles that I previously couldn't win. It was very freeing to just wander around and concentrate on each fight. And as I did, more and more interesting dialogue came out, that explained everything.

Thanks for a great game! I'm looking forward to seeing more.

Thank you for making this game open. I have fixed the mapping error in the map "The Stream" and am adding more map detail/depth to the maps in the game. It seems this game was made with some love but no budget.

If you would be interested in this updated game version let me know.

Thoughts about this game:

Graphics for the characters are really good. Francisco is probably the best part of this game, and also a very useful one at that. Though his help during battles can sometimes be a bit cryptic.

The mapping is above average, but uses too much RTP in my opinion.

I think my biggest complaint about this game is the lack of direction. I mean you can just go wherever you want. And if you don't grind in previous locations you'll end up being overwhelmed by the battles.

There was a mapping error? I didn't notice any bugs when I played...

"The Stream" is not part of the game. I cannibalized the project file for Promised Abyss to make the game based on some of its scripts. I have no idea what you're talking about.

That's the entire point of the game.

It still could have used a map. If I remade it (not gonna happen), I'd make the whole game much tighter, probably about half the size. ;V

The non-linearity of the battles was the entire point of the game, yeah, but not the confused wandering.
craze please make an ogg patch for pcs ike mine whose rmvxa will throw a fit and refuse to work instead of loading the mp3

i had to restart *sigh*
I... I did convert the audio files by myself in the end... one by one...

...I don't regret it, gladly. 'twas a nice experience!
I think trekking through Fort Adder was rather slow and with my terrible sense of space I ended up never knowing where I was -- probably the game would benefit from some sort of map!
Still, thanks for the great game. <3
Wonderful battles, awesome choroctorz.
That skeleton's fingers look really weird. You should get an artist that doesn't make shit.
I don't like the game much but it's still better than certain other games that I won't bother mentioning but whose creator thinks is a good idea to go around shitting on gamepages in some sort of retaliation for being called out over not using the site as it is supposed to be used.
