It all begins on Elysia, home to beings known as Shadewalkers. During 2E459 (2nd era, 459th year), the magi brought forth a prophecy which foretold the downfall of the empire to one man who would possess incredible power beyond what the empire had ever seen.

Thus began the witch hunts…

The empire was ruthless in its search. Village after village burned, leaving burnt-out ruins across the continent. Eventually, the main crusade itself ended but the empire continued to pull those it suspected threatened its power and put their respective homesteads to the torch (although at quite a decreased rate from when the practice began). Watchers, those who could detect and measure the strength of another’s power, were soon let loose upon the land. Furthermore, special Academies were built in various towns to keep a tighter leash on the population.

With all the things the empire did to prevent its downfall, it only caused its life to grow steadily shorter.

Fall of Darkness takes place during the 362nd year of the 3rd era. The empire had 'tried' and executed many men and razed many towns over the last 900 years. You take the role of the last of the Malachi legacy (which, of course, you name yourself), one who just may have what it takes to do what must be done. Will you save the land, or will you succumb to your more sinister desires?

We are Androids

Have an Android phone? Ever wanted to play some good ol RPG Maker games on the go? Oh boy do I have some good news: Fall of Darkness will be making its way to Android. Yeah, I've finally got that end of the game down pat; even better is that I've already got the entry up on the Google Play Store (thanks to finding out how expansion files work so I can get a game >100MB up for download) so, when everything's done and ready to launch, you'll only need to wait a bit for the store to update and nab it.

So what does this mean?

  • Achievements: Yeah, we got them. Go kill X things and get some more internet points
  • Automatic Updates: As a bonus of being a store app, when I push an update you'll get it as soon as it gets through assuming you've set your device to allow such things. This has the added bonus of allowing me to break things entirely and you'll get that almost immediately :3
  • IT'S ON YOUR PHONE: or, really, any 16:9 capable device will suffice. Point is you get to pla gaem on the go and I promise it wont run like absolute crap (but maybe just a little, no fault of my own)


And those running on Windows/OS X (since its HTML5 wrapped with an executable/app) or the Web/HTML5? Well, since good ol Goog's Games API is cross-platform, they've got code to let me slap things like achievements into those versions as well (assuming after I give them a blood sacrifice or two) so you'll be getting a bit of the good stuff if I can get it to function in a way I can find satisfactory.

UPDATE: Can't be done due to how Windows/OS X wraps it. HTML5 via browser should work just fine, though.. If only that were an option I could actually use =3=

Those on iOS may have noticed quite the lack of anything for them. Unfortunately, while I do have access to a VM running the latest OS X and can code rather well on it, I do not have any of the licenses required to be able to even create an IPA much less stick it on Apple's store so you can actually get it. Point is, you'd probably need to jailbreak your device to have a chance, but I'm not even sure if the workflow for developing a jailbreak app even follows the same path as a normal app would.

Don't fret, though, as I'll leave it as a planned platform for when I have income to support the yearly fee as I'd rather not have to charge people for that or face a constant drain on (already kind of tight, thanks college) funds and if I can find out if the API really needs to be done using Objective-C, which I'd have to learn, or if I can stick with Swift, which I'm already kinda familiar with.

UPDATE: crosswalk has iOS libraries, will be experimenting with this when I have the chance so the framework is in place for when I do get a license to distribute and stuff

TL;DR: After a few weeks of a personal hell, Android support is totally there. OS X/Win/Android get achievements and shite via Google APIs (requires Google account to use, though, which may be a turn-off for some but I'd like to keep it consistent with the Android version). iOS is planned as an eventuality assuming it plays at least as nice as Android did


Yeah, you get this which is totally going to change by the time stuff gets released. Proof of concept and all that


I'll see ya'll on the flipside, I need me some sleeps so I can finish my noobish SMBX level and jump right back into this now that I don't have to stare at Java code for hours

Not bad, but please don't use that char and faceset again. I've seen it in like 3 games already, it really ruins the story for me <.<

which games were these, out of curiosity?

I've been planning on changing said character's image as it really doesn't seem to fit his class.. just haven't found one that works for me as of yet

I saw that faceset in Lunar Wish:Orbs of Fate (for example). I would recommend to design your own char and faceset. It's not hard really :P

Uhg, was bound to happen considering the resource..

I just don't have anyway to get my crap on my computer (I think.. there may be a scanner somewhere), and the only 'drawing' tool I've got is a mouse (Actually, I think I might be able to pull it off in Fireworks or something)

Bah, I'll experiment with it... I put my notebook somewhere...

Spriting will be my downfall ; - ; (and coloring)

If you don't like spriting, you can use this:

It's not great, but it's okay I guess. Good luck ;)
Or you could just use the built-in Ace one; like Famitsu it isn't great, though custom parts have been made for it(try searching for some if you want~ :3).

I figure I might as well try to get some practice in the area, it'd probably be better for me in the long run.

At least I'll have something to do while I figure out how to get past my current bout of "wtf do I do now" :p
