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

Yes, I'm back for good. No more disappearing acts! It was already announced in a status update. Btw, do you like my avatar? XD
That's really good news. Good luck with your game! I can't wait to play it.
Yay! Good to see you back, luchi! I had a feeling you'd return. Hopefully the time off has rejuvenated your passion for game design.
Don't hate me cause I'm Cute :)
OH YES yuna, if that's really you, I'd date you anytime....so long as it was in the last row of a very dark movie house :)

Glad to have you back, now get to work :)
You've gotta stop doing this to us >:3
I'm sorry, guys. I won't do it again. Promise. XD But I couldn't stay away from it. Not now that my gam mak muse is back.

(BTW, who is “Ira?” Did Tristian bump her head while I was gone and go through an identity crisis? Lord knows I’ve done that.)
No, no identity crisis. XD Part of the plot.

Yeah 77th subscriber! Sevens my favourite number :D
^ 8 is mine. XD Updated the Character Info section for general info for the tech demo.
Hey! Remember me? The guy who loves ramming your characters against walls for fun and profit? I was going to post me feedback on the previous demo a while ago, but, you know, the game had been cancelled at the time. It's good to see you around, without further ado, the RMW styled comment, that I still had laying somewhere around.

Here are some pics to accompany the wall of text.

Great work Laine! I can definitely see a big improvement over Enelysion in both writing and pacing, what is almost expected given that you have more practice now. What actually surprised me is that there's even a graphical improvement, how the hell did you manage to make your game even prettier?!:O
I felt that the battles were somewhat lacking in the strategical department. But since you've changed the battle system, that point is moot.
I also felt that the last leg of the game was slightly rushed, probably because neither Dante, nor Lance comment on the final scene, despite the fact that both of them should have a LOT to say about this: Tristian "took in" Dante so she could protect him from war...only to go straight to the frontlines? And what about Dante? Him intervening in this affair would equate his country declaring open war on the Valthorme.

Now, just like last time, I'll post all the inane stuff I wrote as I played the game. Some of this is pretty pointless, and some sound somewhat jerk-ish. Though, I assure you my only intention is to provide -hopefully- useful feedback to your great game... and to solve some doubts I have about it.

***Connaught forest/city

-I'm not too keen on the "Master Knight" class: it sounds like a medieval Master chief! Besides that, could anyone be considered a Master of his/her trade at age 26?
- Have you thought about making the menu to chose a tutorial with Yanfly's nice looking common event menu instead of a dialogue box?
- Despite what the tutorial says, when defending, you regenerate less than 10% Mp: just like in Enelysion, 20 Mp chars still regenerate 1 mp.
- Ianna's sleeping sprite looks really cute! But, of course that's not why I pointed it, I feel her hands seem to blend a little with the sheets, maybe an outline would help it.
- When Dante and Tristian chat in the throne room; what's with the dialogue between parentheses? It's like they're speaking in secret so that the princess won't hear, but she's standing right between them.
- Dante(when visiting Tristian's room): "you're obviously *traumitised*.."(BTW, she handpicked 500 soldiers? That must have taken a while. :P)
- The ebony hand cultists' dialogue during the rooftop scene is set to dim, which obviously overlaps with the dialogue back overlay. Actually that happens with quite a few characters in different scenes, though it always looks weird to me.
- Picture 7 + "Neck": During the scene with Tristian in bed, you used an extremely straight line to represent her neck, that IMHO looks wrong. I added a few quick pixels to it to show you approximately what I mean.
- Picture 10: Shouldn't the upper box's base prevent us from going through here.(This was also present on Enelysion, but I was too lazy to point it out.)
- Picture 11: Just like in Enelysion, I still think that the fact that south facing chairs can be walked over, while north facing ones can't to be weird.
- Picture 13: That tree's perspective looks kind of iffy.
- Once used, the Crysalis scroll is gone for good (I just skimmed through it and hadn't saved in while, so, though I can guess, I'm not sure what it said :(). Shouldn't it make more sense to add it to the guide menu? Also, it's missing an audio file when changing pages.
- Picture 15: Besides the obvious wall walking, look how the left guard's head is slightly clipping with the treetop, both of them can also be talked to if you stand on the ground, next to the tower they're on.
- What you're told about the Crysalis sensor makes it seem as if it'll allow you to SEE the Chrysalis, it would probably be a good idea to be more clear about its true function.
- The game CTD ed me after my first game over :( ...and almost all of them after that. Once Ianna left the party it stopped happening.

***Village of lester
- The inn seems pretty pointless when there is a red crystal in the entrance to the nearby forest, also, when I told the innkeper "no" she said something along the lines of "well maybe some other time", followed by "I hope you rested well"
- Picture 17: The world map farm sprite seems to be little misaligned, as you can see.
- Despite your claim of a no-filler game, the quest for the monster tail to get the swift shield WAS indeed filler. Not that I mind, I love sub-quests.

***Diviner temple and following areas
- The area can't be exited...or re-entered once you leave it (I'mean, after you're done with with everything and teleport out, the entrance on the forest near Lester becomes unusable).
- During the attack, the shopkeepers seem not to even care.
- Since they're so hard to get any other way, should we really be awarded TWO orbs for one easy fight?
- Disma(Really? That's a man?) is going to make the princess lose her memory? How does that work? Wasn't already established that the Ebony hand's powers don't work on her?
- If Argi was a swordswoman why is her heirloom a bow?
- The accuracy minigame is too easy, maybe consider speeding it up? Also, on, the nitpicky side (well, the EVEN nitpicky-er) it's kind of pointless making us equip the bow every time we're going to do it, it's just busywork.
- Related to this: are we ever going to learn any other bowskill?
- The rocks switches puzzle seems to be bugged, I got a "you can move the lever now" message after moving a rock OUT of a switch, and still couldn't move it. I finally got it right through random guessing, I'm not even sure what I did. :s
- Picture 23: If you exit and reenter the room, you run into Tristian's evil dopelganger!

***Tairgirn temple
- Why would there be several shops in an incredibly secluded shrine no one ever visits? (silly me, questioning RPG logic :P)
- Also, what's the point of resting on the beds if you can just use the healing cristal outside?
- Lastly, while I remember that bridge to the east we weren't allowed to traverse before, other people may not; Tristian or Dante should suggest something about it, so that the player doesn't fell as disoriented.

***Reglay and surroundings
- The first time you run into Dalebrook farm, Tristian should say something like "I don't need to enter here", because, when I first saw it, I thought you just had forgotten to add an event to it, being the only non-interactable building in the world map.
- Why is Tristian entire unit male?
- The guy who welcomes you to Reglay:"He put up a *formiddible* defense" (sometimes you spell it with a c and other with an s...are both of them ok?)
- Picture 28: Of course that happens in all roofs of that type.
- Picture 29: Her name kind of bugs there. Also that box's perspective makes no sense to me.
- Picture 30: Those vases seem misplaced.
- Gee the people at that bar sure know how to shift blames...cowards. Also once again they keep talking about males. Is Tristian the only female in the militia?
- Charon also talks only of men....
- Picture 31: It shows the same as 29, but seriously, the box below the circled one would have to be where the wall is for this to make sense.
- Tristian's town stores are silly expensive!
- I don't think that awesome scene at the inn should be missable.
- There's an npc soldier complaining about how he can't be chosen as a soldier because of his broken leg, yet he is called "prospective soldier", when he is clearly the opposite of one.
- If you exit and re enter Dalebrook before talking to the farm girl, she will have returned to her original position among the(now dead) soldiers. Everything else seems to still work fine, though.
- Picture 33: What's that supposed to be?
- Getting forced to go to the camp after finishing the sub-quest seems silly. What if I wanted to do anything before going there and hadn't saved in a while??
- One of the drinking soldiers is called a "Legionairre".
- Picture 34: No offense, but those shoulder pads are just ridiculous!
- Tristian (To Alistair):"*One* the one hand I want to lead"
- On the end game titles, Modern algebra, Ak47lol and Zero-project's names are missing caps.
- I decided to check the scene viewer. Just like in the profiles, that text box confirmation is kind of pointless "Do you really want to see the option you just chose?" Why put it in there on the first place? Besides the fact that you can only see a few of the game's scenes (where are the rest of them?), I discovered that there was supposed to be a scene once Tristian and Ianna reached C support (It didn't appear when I reached it in the game). Also, its effect is not always active (I think the status is "healed" by the healing crystals) and, finally shouldn't there be a support explanation in the tutorial?
- BTW, shouldn't being the princess' bodyguard and being a field general, for obvious reasons be mutually exlusive tasks?
- Picture 36; The profile section contains a dummy Darcy profile and no profile for Lance.
- The other game folders contain some unnecesary data like an alternatively dressed Tristian, an ATB bar and a pic of Tristian and Ianna kissing !:O (Sadly I couldn't open open the .psp file to see the other one :( )

Well, I hope that was more helpful than annoying.
^I remember you, yes. LoTL wasn't cancelled, just put on Hiatus. Vol II of Enelysion was cancelled, though.

But still, I appreciate the feedback regardless. Since it's a wall of text, I'll have to copy-pasta it onto Notepad so I can have a more in-depth look at it. XD
Can we use our saves from the previous game or is this a whole new game
This is a complete overhaul from the older demo versions. And because it's a tech demo, no. Said tech demo takes place around 6.5 hours into the original game.
It happened so fast....how do you pull those black balls again? Something with the Z button but what else I didnt get.
So once you have the full complete version of the game completed, I'd really like to put it into my Let's Play Lineup for 2014-jan 1st, 2016. This looks like it'd be a lot of fun and I'm debating on playing the demo or just waiting to get the full story. Though if I do play the demo I'll leave you a nice review, from the images I've seen posted up the graphics are nice and clear < 3 that's a thumbs up.
^I'd appreciate a review for now. =) The full game won't be completed for some time.
Vol II of Enelysion was cancelled, though.

This still makes me sad. :(
^ I made a blog post of that now. :3
