Floors Completed: 6/95

Diabolica is a large dungeon-crawler RPG game that follows the story of Alder as he traverses the great Diabolica dungeon in an effort to appease their divine god, Adon, to grant the human race an era of prosperity for the next ten years. They are not alone however, different groups of creatures seek to attain this as well, in addition to another competing group of humans! Will you be able to conquer all 95 floors and complete Adon's Task?

Explore 95 pre-designed floors full of monsters, puzzles, and treasure; acquire ingredients to craft powerful weapons; fight tough monsters and bosses in a refreshing take on battle; chose from various Roles to fulfill in battle; and enjoy the story laced in every floor!


I plan on making a Spanish-language port and possibly a Brazilian Portuguese-language port of this game.

greetings from the void

hello! i barely show my face around here and have actually kept this game page hidden for a few months... but i would like to make known that i still work on this game on a regular basis. that being said, it still isn't within short reach of being released :(

i have been battling perfectionism and not-good-enough-ism in various aspects of my life and especially with my creative endeavors, and so during the off days that i do work on it i have been going back through to test things and make sure that i would be proud to release them to the world. so expect a few updates here and there as more things start to materialize!

::begin rant::

even though there are games that aren't polished or refined that don't attempt to break away from the rpg-maker style in any way that still have success on the community in spite of this, i myself don't want to play safe and let the project drop too far into the mediocrity typically associated with the engine. even if my hobbyist project never breaks outside the realm of RMN, i would want it to be seen as one of the higher quality games available, and so i work with the intention of making it true.

i continue to work with VX Ace in spite of MV's or generally superior game engines' existence because Ace is what I started this project with, and any sort of engine change would inevitably spell out doom for the project. i have already done enough to make the engine suitable for my game, it will be finished with this game engine.

i have been working on and off on diabolica for years and as i become more mature and competent, i realize that there is potential to release a decent project as my first completed game. as such, i hope that i will receive a lot of harsh feedback as i begin to show more aspects of the game, as i need the views of other people to put the game in the right direction. expect demo testing requests and the like!!

::end rant::

Awesome~ Thank you, I am trying to make them look as good as I can personally. LOL I don't think I will be able to complete it in a week, but I am working hard and will release a demo as soon as the gameplay time is at about 1 hour, maybe more.

Oh sorry, I have never liked menu based saving, that's always been weird. Don't worry, there will be plenty o' fires until you get to the Shadeland Tower.

The first half or so of the game is spent traveling the world looking for two other people to take with you to the Shadeland Tower and getting stronger. Then, you take on the surreal Shadeland Tower for the rest of the game, until you get to the top and slay the final boss.
Looks great. Take another suscriber :D

Thanks all so much, I am glad people are interested! I will work hard to finish this, and hard to get a demo soon. :)
Could have evolution class knight to darknight. How many playable characters and their classes. Could have a thief to steal items, armor and accessories.
Looking forward to play.]

Hmm, here is how characters and their skills work:

There are 6 playable characters, four are gotten in the main storyline, the other two are found by completing optional content.

The characters classes in order you get them: Knight, Monster Mage, Berserker, Healer, Sage, and Chemist. The last two are optional. They each have a specific set of possible skills they can learn. To learn more skills, you must use the skills you already have a certain number of times.

For example:
You have the Berserker, who knows Crippler. You use Crippler 10 times, and you learn the next skill, Dejoint.

I haven't thought about them getting a 'master class' or anything, though maybe.
I currently do not have anyone who can steal.
subscribed! The mapping does have some good quality, so looking forward to a demo if you're planning too.

Wonderful! I will make a demo when I have finished the Forest Region. (which mostly means the optional content)

Maybe about a week.
Looks great! I'll keep my eye on this one! (Animated enemies sound really cool)!
Please stick with it this time :)

Yeah, this one isn't going to be as long and extensive as HSH was, so I should be able to complete it this time.
It looks like you're pretty serious about finishing this. I wish you the best of luck on your latest endeavour, Adon, so you can add your name to the "completed" list of game creators. ^^

(Also, BTW, nice looking gamepage, really sleek looking.)

I hope you finish!



Thank you very much, my 'resume' was looking pretty un-impressive, so I am working hard! Thanks, I tend to stick to the same dark theme on my game pages.
