Estes was just fourteen years old and dealing with the loss of his father when The Calamity occurred. Objects of unknown origin had struck near Ignarosa, the capital of Autenon, with the force so great the dust blotted the sky out and led to three months of freezing and unrelenting snow. People died of cold and starvation, and only a few isolated enclaves lived to see the Months of Blizzard end as suddenly as they started. During this time, many plants and animals were also decimated or driven to extinction. In their place, new and dangerous creatures to fill the void, many with a mysterious link to The Calamity itself...

Ten years later, Estes and his friend Nikolai are sent out from their home town of Jupa to make contact with survivors further north, and learn what they know of Calamity. Estes also hopes to see Makal, his formerly beautiful birthplace, while Nikolai is searching for the man who betrayed his father. Their journey will take them halfway across the barren lands of Autenon and grow more complex than anyone had imagined...

Latest Blog

Looking for a writer!

With the recent completion of Nihilo's demo, I'm ready to get back in and start churning away at the story!
I've already implemented all fixes mentioned in the previous blog here.
Already working on the latest areas which will include an abandoned subway station in Olphan you'll have to traverse through to reach Skuud.




HELP.ME.
For anyone not aware, I previously had some help with writing the story of Nihilo, specifically in the dialogue department as this is NOT my strong suit. Unfortunately, my partner NTC3 has went missing and I haven't been able to make contact with him for quite some time. (Years)

Where are you, NTC3?

I'll cut straight to the chase; The majority of the demo's dialogue was written heavily by NTC3, and only the last bits were written by myself. As this is not something I'm confident in doing myself, I'm reaching out for help from the community. Would anyone be interested in crafting Nihilo's story with me? I'm looking for someone who is well versed in creating and writing dialogue and story event ideas who would be willing to partner up with me on completing the game. Someone who can take NTC3's dialogue and story-telling approach and make it their own. I have a base outline of the entire story of the game, and tons of events and chapter ideas that just need to be fleshed out. (I am open to changes, but I'd like the base outline to stay very much the way it is.)

A few things;
  • Nihilo is a non-commercial game. I will not be making any profits off the completed work, nor would anyone working on it along with me.

  • I won't be able to compensate anyone for their work. This game is a product of passion, for myself, and for yourself if interested. The object here is to put a game out there that I and youself can truly be proud of and enjoy, and hope others enjoy as well.


I know this is a long-shot, but if you liked the demo and would be interested in working with me, send me a message and we'll chit chat!

charblar: Thought this was using some obscure game engine for a second since I didn't know about the new RM2k3 icon haha it's looking great still though keep up the good work!

Yeah, I was confused there for a little while as well.
Thanks for the support!


Koopa: Dude, I'm loving that bit of the story, color me interested on the Calamity. I love the way you set that up, it makes it beyond intriguing to find out what exactly happened in the game.

Can't wait to see more of what you have in store! :)

Thanks duder!
As for Lakria Legends, the feeling is mutual.
Can't wait for your next release.


kentona: Dem web 2.0 links
Just trying to attract as much attention to this game from as many social media plugins as I can, lulz.
Unfortunately there isn't a huge following for RM2k3 games anymore.
Hopefully this new official RM2k3 release will spark some interest. :)

Regardless, I'm glad to have you even acknowledge my page, and hope you will give the demo a shot when it's released in the near future, Kentona.

You have twitter in your twitter feed, youtube in your media section, teen content (ranking?) is awkwardly huge and has distracting color palette. I would use a track from nihilo instead of soundcloud's icon. Gamejolt is useless as it gives you same or worse information as rmn. So only reasonable links are facebook and tumbrl (which u don't have there).

Thank you for the compliments.
I hope you'll stick around for the demo.

Maybe it is too much, I dunno.
Chalk it up to personal taste.
Regardless, I can't believe this has even become a deal...
Just seems a bit silly.
I suppose I should work on making the page more minimal though.
What'll it hurt?

Also, my original idea was to put Nihilo's Soundcloud Playlist (the soundtrack) in place of the actual link, but that won't work for whatever reason...

Anywho, I appreciate the interest, I really do.
Thank you.
When will the demo for this b available
Hopefully very soon, within the next month or so. I've hammered out most of the ground work for the battle system, and that's what's been taking such a long time. There's already about a good 2 hours or more of game play programmed, I'm shooting for about 2 more for the demo release.

How game doin?


Well, long story short, both me and Giznads have important things going on in our lives, so it's on hiatus until we can give it the attention it deserves. Right now, neither of us wants to rush it to completion just to have something out there.
Welp, good luck my dude. Hope life stuff improves.

Thanks!
This looks great. Can't wait to try it.
Still gonna wait patiently on this, I know the time will come when it'll arise again man! :)
Giznads! Any updates on if this is moving forward? XD From what I remember playing, these aesthetic you had going was truly impressive.

I haven't touched this in quite a while to be completely honest, guys.
I haven't even really been active here. :/
I come back from time to time, but I've been so out of it.
I'm just starting to get a little free time cleared from my schedule.

I plan to re-connect with NTC3 in the near future and start discussing plans for what we should ultimately do.
Thanks for your continued interest, Blind and Koopa.

What y'all did is still really awesome. And I hope there is more. Also, even if it takes time or maybe never continues I'll find solace in the fact that it's inspiring.

Best of luck guys!

You did an amazing job with your game! There's so much attention to detail! It looks like a commercial game.
