Latest Blog

Some fixes and changes implemented

Since release something weekend is past, I've changed a few things.

*First, I changed the upgrade shops thing from a treasure to a phone you get the program from. I figured that would be a better way to do it.

*Then, I tried to balance out the skills a little better. Lumina was overpowered so I lowered its damage a little bit and raised its MP cost. Crosswave received similar treatment. Poison/LunaWave/Rage were untouched.

*Some weapon tweaks. Staves do not raise mind now, but the ball weapons do. So it's a trade-off between power (fists), magic power/speed (balls) or fast MP regen (staves) or balance (blades).

*Minor fixes such as some tile map errors, portrait/face fixes.

*And a big fix: Enemy HP bars are now displayed on the bottom of the screen, like so:


*Another big fix: Normal attacks now have extra range to them. They hit one tile above and below the direction you're facing. They also have knockback too.

*Fix 3: Running away tiles have been fixed. You cannot step on running tiles directly, you have to face and head towards it. It should fix the "Going vertically gives me another escape message!" issue.

That is all for now. Hope you enjoy!

Well, RSW is about giving feedback, so…notes as I went along:
-Oh dear god, those portraits ;A;
-From time to time a dialog box will pop up with both face and portrait.
-Dialog is a bit confusing sometimes, as it’s hard to tell what they’re trying to say with it bouncing all over the place, as the characters are not really very well introduced.
-Beautiful tiles and mapping ;-;
-Why is poor Viviann wearing a green prisoner’s rag. The others are all dressed;-; (nvm it was appartently her equipment)
-Gotta love that music as well
-Hit detection and waits are a bit funky, I got killed :<
-The run away mechanic can be really inconvenient, since it does not push you AWAY, and in the panic (I was not even trying to run away ;A;) I moved DOWN, which prompted me again, letting enemies get all around me.
-The lack of effect when enemies dies is a bit sudden and disorienting
-Melee attacks seem to be pretty hard to execute, or maybe I’m just really bad at this ;-;
-Some sprites seem to have the flat blacks transparent (one of them stupid import bugs of Ace)
-The mother is a bitch :x
-Some mapping issues here and there (motly tile errors and border things) but the mapping I overall very pretty :D
-I’m not understanding how the social thing works. It doesn’t seem like the others are going down when I talk to someone…?
-The combat screens are rather interesting, btw
-Some portraits in dailog are borked (reno’s drinking scene for example)
-Them friggin respawning enemiessssssss

Well, that was…something XD
What can I say? The combat was ok, nothing particularly hard for the most time (I kept away ad casted lumina all the friggin time, because fuck melee risks >C). The plot…was rather strange, to be honest, and the characters even stranger. It was really odd, as sometimes they simply behaved in ways that you could not expect, and I honestly had a hard time defining the characters’ personality. Overall, the writing…not it’s strength.
Visuals were the best of it, with the tiles being really cute and the portraits being awesome. Here and there were some tile errors or less pretty tiles, but it still had a really cute and effective style (also those portraits are awesome).
What else is there? Music was good, Bugs…I only found one game breaking bug (Lunar Wave or Cross wave or some skill simply crashed the game) and there were small eventing and face/dialog errors here and there.
A nice game. I feel it would greatly benefit form a vigorous polishing (most of the errors seem easily fixed in eventing) and some editing and rewriting of the script. Other than that, good job!

yay! Well the portraits thing was a rushed job so that was bound to happen. I was hoping I had gotten them all but i guess I didn't take the time to test the bar scenes! Whoops.

Tried to keep the combat difficulty low-ish so that people can get through and see the story. Maybe I should have had a different default attack skill, everyone likes using Lumina ;w;

Writing wise, I admit it I suck at that D: Trying to get better at that!

Also if I might add, social stat goes up whenever you talk to that character or when you pick their choice in a multiple choice option. That USED to be present more in the game but I since got rid of it due to lack of time so I think it only happens like once now. It was something I had bigger plans for but not free time to do!

But otherwise I am glad you liked it overall! I will need to practice writingthings

OK another big fix just updated now because it was requested: Attacks have a greater range so they don't just hit the 2 tiles in front, but have a 3 tile width instead of 1. So you don't need to be directly facing the enemy to attack them.

And it has a knockback effect as well.
This deserves more attention, the graphic and the custom BS are awesome.
Very nice work, I subscribe. ;)

im a bit lost on why a girl said no peeking when your a girl o.o

dont get why monsters that attack you are in the park...noone else notices them worse thugs? seriously in broad daylight in a active park? come on now!

online shopping sweet...

stopped taking notes


Overall
gotta say over all this game was WAY better then i was expecting its pretty sad to see the lack of attention it got!
id say my only dislike really was monsters in npc areas
respawning or not that was annoying for me

outside of that the world map was beautiful,liked the characters,and there was a good amount of awesome triggers i dont see very often!
upgradable shops,online stores and a crazy active battle system that i actually enjoyed!

really more people should try this! its good!
ill be doing a video play thru soon :3

but what was the point of the coins? was expecting a secret or something but we got nothing XD

Oh nice, glad you liked!

The coins can actually be used in the upper left room in the Toy store. There are various items on desks and when you find the appropriate coin, you can take that item. The character there gives you an item when you have all the coins too.
