I've stopped production on this game, so it is now, officially cancelled.

You will need the VX RTP to run this game:

To install:

First, make a new folder, and call it Tristian: LoTL.
Put the compressed download into that folder as well as the Audio folder and extract like normal with WinRAR or WinZip.
Install the fonts included if you don't have them yet.

Basic Controls:

Apart from the usual arrow/directional keys:

Alt + Enter - Toggle Full Screen mode
Enter/Spacebar/Z/ - Action key
Esc/X - Main Menu/Cancel an interaction
Shift - Sprint
Left Shift + Z = Pull an object towards you ( like a crate or boulder )

out the door

13 days before I am supposed to 'celebrate' being on this site for 7 years, i've decided to leave rmn as well. having grown uncomfortable with the circle-jerkers ( aka the devs whose games get the most attention and all their friends ) and the few rotten apples here, it's simply become an unhealthy place for me to hang around.

while i won't be posting here anymore, i'd like to stay in contact with some of the members here by ways of building an e-mail list ( yes, it's a little different from the usual chatrooms like discord/skype, but i see them as massive timesinks. i never get anything done ) informing subscribers about my future projects. so... if you're interested, drop me a pm and we'll see where the road takes us. the simple gesture would mean a lot to me, because it shows that some of you still care. who knows? maybe you'll get a surprise or two.


maybe some of you hate me for broken promises i couldn't keep, maybe some of you lost your respect for me because I couldn't keep doing what I loved to do. or maybe some people just hated on Enelysion because it became popular...

who knows? it doesn't matter anyway.
i'm going to keep on being a creative workaholic.

So long, and keep gaming
i was always too serious for this place, anyway

Hey…why is this game suddenly the most buzzing game as of late - what the heck’s going on!?

Unless…could it be…a possible comeback is in the works???

Just let it go.

- Hmmmm!!!
Looking at your current, and past work. You have a lot of skill, and talent. Maybe it is time for to explore new paths less traveled, and see where it leads you.

Wish you luck out there.
I am quite new on this forum, but it's quite sad you abandoned the project. Hugs.
I don't know if I'm the first to say it or not, but... If you've decided to cancel, then that's okie dokie. While I do admit seeing it cancelled is upsetting, it's better to move on from a project than to keep working on it when you don't want to.
Noooo. Don't cancel it! Work on it at your own pace. :3 We're all behind ya on that!
I was looking forward to this game. :(

I wanna marry ALL the boys!! And Donna is a meanc

You need to make a separate folder, then place the Game.exe file and the audio folder in there, then extract Game.exe. It should work then.
When i open the game it says missing audiofile BGM The crusader.But it continues.Then i try to exit then:missing file audio/SE/ button 9 and closes(yes it was exit so it may be right).If i press play: missing file Audio BGM A forgotten promise but it continues.
EDIT: Then missing file audio BGS Medevial battle sound but continues then:Missing audiofile BGM Invasion 2 but continues.
I must apologise for the lack of mi-monthly updates so far, but a combination of illness and real-life has made it difficult to get back into the swing of things. I haven't blogged in so long that I think I've lost my knack for writing good blogs ( indeed, my most recent one was probably one of my worst ).

But I will try to have a demo out by mid-July. If not then, August.
I'm new to the community, so how do I download this game? I don't see the "dowload" option in the top-right corner.

Edit: Forget what I said, I just read your earlier comment. I hope you'll finish the demo soon.
No, it's not RL-related. I'm just in a funny place right now and stuck in game-dev hell. Sometimes I think I've bitten off more than I can chew at times, but I somehow manage, day by day, marking every hour of gameplay done as an achievement. So it motivates me a bit.

The demo will just have to wait unfortunately, but we are still testing it behind the scenes. It's just that making progress on the rest of the game has sort of ground to a halt ( whether it is due to being overwhelmed with the scope of the project, procrastination etc. is another thing entirely ). But if anyone wants to be a tester, feel free to drop me a PM. Since the demo won't be coming out by the end of April as I predicted.

But I won't cancel the project. Not only will it make me look like a massive failure, but it will destroy the hours that not only I have put in, but the hours that others have put in as well. And that for me, by far, is the worst thing to do to anyone. To waste their time.

It kind of saddens me that I'm not the same enthusiastic developer I was some 4 or 5 years ago, but I really do want to be that person again. Anyone who has followed Enelysion ( which is still averaging around 250-300 downloads a month ) during its development and is following Tristian now would have noticed a distinct tonal shift in the way I write my blogs. I was magnetic. I don't know if I've got that in me anymore. I'm whimsical ( as nhubi put it ) and some people may find it annoying that I change track so often, but that's just me as a person, and I wouldn't change it.

But that's just me rambling honest truths about myself.

Sorry for putting this game on Hiatus for the 2nd time. But it will be great. This I promise you.
Back on Hiatus again, eh? Well…I guess that’s better than it being “Cancelled”. :P

Well, whatever’s going on behind the scenes, hopefully it’s not too bad and you’ll get to come back to this as soon as possible to work on it again. It would definitely suck if this was the final nail in the Tristian coffin because of real life issues or whatever.

(Unless it was to work on a certain Siglud and Cillian side-project that a certain Addit wants! :D )
