There's war in the world of Chromia, the evil emperor is trying to rule (or destroy) the world.
You start as Eric, a young guy attending a military school of the Kingdom of Alcaria, which is by far the only enemy the empire still has.
On graduation day, there's an assault on the military school, this is where the game begins.

Don't forget this is my first game ever, I know I can still learn many things in game development.

Took me 8 months to finish this (I'm married, 3 children, work 7 days full time)

1.2 Patch out now

Patch Notes:

- new final dungeon "Cleft of the Earth" instead of just the final boss fight, containing new monster types
- monster encounter rate lowered in some areas
- monsters drop new items throughout the whole game (or at least they have a chance to)
- adjusted some monster's HP to shorten some battles (especially in the later dungeons)
- fixed some small mapping, typing and eventing bugs I came around, nothing game breaking after all

Dont be offended but my antivirus ( Avasti ) says it has never encountered the type of file needed to play the game and advises not to play it.
I am certain it is one of those strange things but I am curious if anyone gets a similar message.
I down loaded the file and played the game. File is safe.

It usually says that about games that have barely any downloads (0-40)
It even said it about my game when I was test downloading it (when I
first uploaded it.)
Having AUTO first is a pain. Maybe in third would be better?
Also in the Ancient Ruins is there actually a way to the ladder in the bottom right or is it a puzzle we cant get to yet?

I personally liked having auto in first...

There is a way after you defeat the boss in the ancient ruins.
I think with AUTO first it takes away my decision. If I am going to let the game fight for me, i might as well be a spectator. Maybe for a boss i cant whip after a couple thousand attempts....let someone fight for a bit, but for every fight.

I am obviously missing something in the sewers. Ive opened five chests and none of them had a monster but Brenda says theres a chest she needs. Ive walked all over and cant find it....invisible?

I checked it, it's a small mistake I made, if you open the chests BEFORE you talk to Brenda first, it can get messed up (cause the variable that controls which chest the bow is randomly inserted to, is set to 0 at first, while it is set from 1 to 5 which are the numbers the chests check for)
I'll fix her event to autostart in the first patch I'll submit, but for now I think the only thing you can do is to reload a savegame earlier :/ and talk to her first before you open any chests down there...
No doubt this something essential and cant continue otherwise. Damn! Alas! Well its interesting enough to just begin anew.
What I got from the title is that this is intentionally generic.

My question is, is this a parody then?

Also, can you give me a logical estimate on how long this will take to complete(IE: Numbers of hours.), and how much grinding will be required?

@ROY, I have no idea what AVASTI is :) but I used to have Norton and if the game was not very, very popular with a load of downloads....Norton did the same thing to me, except it simply deleted the game I was trying to download. :)

It is no parody, or it is not meant to be a parody ;) Just a little RPG to try out RPG Maker VX Ace.

A complete playthrough should take 6-8 hours (probably longer if you want to grind a little etc)

Grinding is NOT needed to finish the game, I did my personal playthrough and adjusted the monsters so that it can be finished without any grinding, of course grinding makes it easier.

AVAST is an anti virus program, which is free and much much better than norton for example or antivir... it is one of the only virus tools that constantly checks ITSELF for viruses...
Ok, decided to play it.

This feels like the kind of full fledged game that someone who is passionate about game creation makes to seek out constructive criticism, so I'm here to give you two pointers on my two main issues.

Random battles towards the end of the game take way too long(up to 8 turns sometimes), and that made the game start to drag. Not sure what advice to give you on this, other than to try to make the experience less monotonous.

The dialogue wasn't bad enough to make me quit, but it that it kept me from caring all that much about any of the characters. Essentially, you need to work on structuring your sentences.

Alright out of the way, I will leave you with an honest compliment.
I ended playing this because you were completely honest about this being your first game, and you didn't pretend that it was anything special. The last game that I played was this game called Kukenstra: The Megalomanical Monasteries, which boasted a lot of features(all of which were bland at best) and featured dialogue which made the characters feel like robot aliens pretending to be real people. That game made me not want to play any other RM titles for months, this one makes me want to play more.

Anyways, I wish you well, and I hope that you continue making more games. Just try to consider your mistakes as you go along and act accordingly, and you could end up making something great.

If you do, please send me a private message or whatever.
I enjoyed playing this game~~ ^^
The story wasn't innovative, but it was nice to play a traditional RPG and it was fun. I agree with what MorteTorment says above.
Good job! Hope I can play your next game soon.
Just finished the game, and loved it.
I wish there were more games like this on this site.
In my opinion, this is true RPG game.
I always play games that have normal, turn based battle system. Hate all others, and don't know why developers strive to make new battle systems.
I didn't mind the story, it's also traditional adventure RPG story.
Characters could've been more developed (like more back story, so we could identify with them more), but since it's your first game, thumbs up!!! You really created a polished game.

I'll be waiting for sequel. Good luck!
Hey, I decided to give this game a try since the images caught my interest. Overall, I liked it; it's a relatively harmless, archetypical RPG that works well for what it is, especially given the fact that it's your first game. Some specific notes I felt inclined to make:

-pretty much every monster sprite was a FF sprite... fits with the game's nature, but perhaps the bestiary could've used a bit more... visual variety? I dunno

-very archetypical in terms of story and dialogue, as I said before. It's good since the game doesn't try to be anything more than it is, and it's a great effort for your first game but maybe some more oomph and flavor would've helped me stay engaged, as near the end (around the Cursed Forest, give-or-take) I got a bit bored

-dem secret o mana tracks (really, I thought it was a nice touch since that game's OST is great imo)

-apart from the difficulty setting, which added some replay value, battles were completely average. I pretty much tore through everything to be honest... nothing really special

Sooo yeah, good game and very well done for your first project; the only issue is that it feels too derivative of other FF-style games and doesn't have enough to set it apart from the norm, but it's nothing that makes the game a total abomination or anything. Good work, Dust!

^^^^^^^^Pretty much what he said :)

But still Dustie, I did enjoy your game. In fact, I think this is the second time I enjoyed it :)

Routine story and graphics but interaction of characters and quests was nice.
Love all the weapons and armor.
Maybe it would have been nice for the character who replenished the parties health to have spell to also replenish the mana.....or a shop where you could buy mana :)

Thanks for a nice game Dustie.
In the first dungeon east of the castle, I can not find the third ornament to open the roof top door. I see a rope ladder on the east side of dungeon, do not know how to get to it.

There's only two ornaments, once you have both, you can use them to form the final ornament that opens the door. The ladder you see east will be visited later.

Random thoughts
poor allice people use that avatar for men so its hard to tell the difference :(

Auto command :( screw that and its the first command!?

standard skills including names

allice used a monster filled tunnel to sneak out of school? yet still is level one???

why is the leader of the enemy facing ^ ? looking at his chair instead of his front

lets be nice and remove random battles from the world map

why do you have to go that far south to chop wood? there is alot of trees right next the academy

the same enemies in the forest :(

a single small castle is considered a kingdom!? :D

how the hell did the king hear about my situation!? do they have phones!?

one of the most annoying things with "save the world" plots outside of it not being the world just humans or not even that big of a scale...is these kings..they have the audacity to order you around and not even help you out! no money no gear no transportation...
you'd figure the guy who joins you would have the best the shop has to offer already!Not even a free bed! or a really cheap one!
^tho theres lots of free places anyway

how did the guard at the ruins know to let you in? his excuse was it was dangerous. but you know monsters will still be in there
in fact he just left! what if someone else went in!?

finally a new enemy! :D

ive always wondered is Burst a magic or physical attack?

the arrow tiles are so simple theres no point to them XD

Eric is fine with everything else but complains about getting Lyz help!? mind blown!

ouch 2 healers! thqts no good!

wow if only carpenters were that amazing in reality!

the irony when the capital of a country does not have the best supplies and gear! leave it to some random small town to shine!

why are you collecting all the shards again? the king himself said that if all of them are brought together....BIG EVIL will be summoned...aren't you doing exactly that???

something is bothering allice :D i bet she is a traitor. its so obvious! she ran to you immediately when the enemy came,she knew about the secret exit and shes a witch :D which is suspicious because she was at a military raining camp!

lots of awkward grammar :(

not only did you not tell the king about the evil church you left it standing! pretty hypocritical for people trying to be heros!

aww no mithral helmet!

nice prison.lets you keep all your gear!

you would think when you save someone in a cell they would wonder how you got out. its like not being captured is normal o.o

is the carpenter insane??? he just walks into a fully fortified prison alone?!

if the evil lord could destroy the world...how the hell do they expect you to do anything???
your so pathetic you seriously got captured by about 10-15 people not that long ago >.>


General 2H and 35+M
Generic

Overall
play if your new to rpgs

Crashes
if you click on game end in the menu and back up it will crash

ABSOLUTELY AMAZING. also there was a bug i found, once you left the prison if you went back in it would just be Eric for the rest of the game, your allies would be there in battle but wouldn't follow you around. still it was an amazing game. great work man!
