SYNOPSIS:

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...

Hiatus & Plans

Hello all, for anyone not aware, I have been working closely alongside Blind on his game Beloved Rapture, an awesome SNES inspired game in the works planned to release very soon! This has unfortunately taken much of my time away from working on Nihilo, but on a positive note has also made me reconsider the future of the game!

Beloved Rapture is a commercial project made in Rm2k3 v1.12 modified heavily with BigShan's Maniacs Patch. We've been able to achieve so many things using this patch that break the boundaries of the engine including modifying the battle system's UI and fully animating enemies, easily and conveniently putting together a modern style CMS, and converting the project to a 16:9 ratio. Widescreen support for a 2k3 game, who would've thought? It's barely recognizable as a game created in 2k3 anymore.

All of this work has made me realize the desire I have to take Nihilo to that next level and put that passion into a game that can be commercialized as well, whether it be using 2k3 or another engine entirely! (We'll cross that bridge when we get to it)

Long story short, Nihilo is currently on hiatus until we wrap up with Beloved Rapture, but once that's done, expect some very exciting news! I hope I can garner enough attention for Nihilo to start a Kickstarter and raise enough funds to hire a really great team!

Stick around for more updates and please let me know your feelings here on the topic as well.

-Giz

P.S.
Go check out Beloved Rapture and wishlist it on Steam now!
Blind has been pouring his heart and soul into this project since before 2007 and his vision is finally coming to fruition! Not to mention the sleepless nights of work I've put into it as well! ;)

Aren't any save points, my man.
I neglectfully forgot to throw any in this demo.
Next demo will have save states, I assure you.

The screenshots look good and I'm interested in this Custom Magic Combo System. Can't wait for your next release.
Thank you for your interest, bud!
Very glad you enjoyed.
The next demo will be much more improved, I guarantee it!

Muchas Gracias, Charblar! I'm glad you like. :)

is there a downmload


There was, and will again be very soon.

I recently removed it to implement many of the features you see via video uploads on this page.
The demo that was up was very unsatisfying, and did not properly represent my vision.
But, I'm very glad when anyone shows an interest in my project.

Please, stick around, I will be releasing a final demo very, very soon.
I can almost guarantee something by late February/early March.
What a pleasant surprise! This game looks fantastic!
Thank you, buddy!
I'm looking forward to Opus as well. :)

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!
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! :)
