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

You will need the VX RTP to run this game:
http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/additional/run-time-packages

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.

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

this game seems good... so good ~ (^ω^)
@macblo: Yes, the game is quite linear, but I might go for multiple endings.
@unity: I have too much time on my hands. ><
My friend recommend me to this game. He said it's complete, though I didnt see any complete flag in this game. So just to make sure, my question "is this game already complete?".

Sorry for the silly question.
No, it will be a long time before Tristian is completed. My other game Enelysion, is complete however.
Updated the entire page. Now it looks even more snazzier. :D
It looks great! I wish I knew how to make snazzy looking game pages. :P

random thoughts

Sexy title screen!

lots of empty land,worse you need a crystal shard to get off the starting area o.o
tho for the adventure realistic look its ok also glad theres not random battles to a place to train would be nice

in Reglay after the scene when you 1st arrive you decide to look around town.
how ever a flaw at this point is spawning you north of town rather then the west which is where you should of just come from


finally a inn that treats you right! royalty should be respected! :D
(in fiction anyway)


can enter Bastillion Fort b4 going to Reglay or the camp,i did not try to go inside the building so im not sure if this can be a major bypass

it really pisses me off when women are called sluts and whores not because they are but just because they are women :/



plot
well its war pretty self explanatory

Characters

im not found off royalty and so called hour because its just offensive to put someone above someone else because of the bloodline,family name or position in society.
regardless i really liked some of the scenes with tristian who at 1st seems like a empty knight who just protects the princess because her family has b4 her...which is just bad...
but she has a bit more to her character then that.
as she has her own views and understanding of things.
she cares about the people tho not all of them appreciate what she has done.
i like her overall
/
and how the princess does not just see her as a tool to protect herself but as a dear fiend if not more.
this really made the game playable for me if the 1st thing i saw was her being a significant character who was stuck up. id have probably dropped it right there.
it is a shame however that she would believe having no living family means one has no reason to live tho...thats a really, really shallow life
i like her overall
/
dante- i pity this guy his characterization is being loyal to his country and being in love with the single most impossible girl to be with int he entire universe
do not like him
/
coward-i feel this guy. he does not want to fight he just wants to live his life. just because his countries leads suck at life should not mean his life should be ruined right?
the one thing i would never forgive him for is for any reason he turns his back on his friends. at this point i dont trust him. cowards in war are scum who would do anything to save themselves. he should die in the story to redeem himself
do not like him


gameplay

mostly story and exploring with a few 1 time battles
which feels odd having the detailed stat system that is irrelevant w/o lvling up and you cant train anywhere o.o
the battles are turn based and you have up to 4 members(im glad 1-4 are my preferred more is too much)


Overall
i enjoyed this title. the demo leaves a lot to desire tho would personally w8 until games finished or further updates at least
@shayoko: It is a little early in the demo to judge Dante, but the guy does have a link to one of the game's antagonists and is probably the reason Tristian herself is still breathing. While he probably does come across as one-dimensional and pining for his lost love ( what guy wouldn't, if he were to lose a looker like Tristy? ), I am trying to flesh him out to the extent of TriAnna.

Also, I need to take down the current demos. They're quite outdated now and don't paint an accurate picture for the game's future release.
Poor Dante doesn't get enough love. (I actually quite liked him!)
Poor guy will probably be overshadowed even more once Darcy ( the resident Genki girl and Tristian's foil ) and Trabant ( the resident second-in-command bamf and all around bad-ass ) become major playable characters as well. But I do like Dante myself, even if the whole eventual TriAnna ship kills any chance of him being with her. Mind you, I'd advise players not to get too attached to the pairing. The game has three endings, after all ( Bad, Normal and Perfect Endings ).

But who knows, maybe Tristy still has unresolved feelings for him, complicating things even further.

Maybe it's:

Bad: No kissing ;_;
Normal: One kiss, snuggling, cuteness
Perfect: Make-outs galore, an overload of cuteness :D
I can guarantee that snogging in the game happens regardless of the endings. The player will 'only' lose out on an extra image still for the perfect ending. XD And a boatload of feels.
This game looks beautiful. I can't wait until it's done.

Well given the map loss and other things going on with Luchi I can understand taking a break for a little while.

Hey we got Enelysion in the end, we'll get Tristy too.
Better put on Haitus than flat out Cancelled. I'm in a bit of a funny place right now ( and RL only worsens my drive to work on my games ) and I'm at that point where I have no desire to do anything game-related. Like I'll open up the editor, do nothing for half an hour, become dispirited and close it down. But it could have been worse. I could have lost my entire project, but it's backed up on Dropbox.

In the meantime, I'll refine my art and maybe even play Final Fantasy Tactics ( I've been eyeing that for a while now and may take some inspiration from it... without the whole Lucavi thing... And end up shipping Agrias/Ovelia. )

Yeah, I can totally understand. Between this and finishing Enelysion, burnout was inevitably going to happen. Take a breather, play some games instead, and just do other stuff, and you'll come back to this stronger than ever.
