Karuna and Aurelie were friends. Then Aurelie went off and found the infernal armor of Ellicide and became the Evil Overlord Darkloft. Karuna is the only one who can stop her. But Karuna loves Aurelie, even now.

Luxaren Allure is a medium-sized RPG (12-20 hours) that follows Karuna and her allies as they explore the isles of Luxaren and confront a former friend who now wants nothing but destruction. This is a wlw (women who love women, lesbian romance, yuri, etc) game with an all female playable cast.

Also included are:

  • Title Screen Art, Face Portraits and Illustrations by M-3-1 (http://m-3-1.deviantart.com/)
  • Side View CTB Battles, with animated heroes and (semi)animated enemies!
  • New tilesets and battlers, made just for this game!
  • No random encounters. All enemies are visible on screen, and each triggers a different enemy party.
  • No RTP needed! Most resources are custom, and everything's included with the download.
  • A simple crafting system.
  • A short, character driven story that plays with the standard RPG formula.


Characters:


Karuna has been training with the School of the Unwavering Blade for years, and is considered the best choice for defeating the evil of Darkloft. She's serious, strong-headed, and confident, but her reasons for choosing to be a hero might not exactly be selfless...


Chisa is Karuna's self-proclaimed squire. She's timid but very strong, if a little naive. Her loyalty to Karuna is unquestionable.


A mage from the Naga clan, and one of the few of her kind that does not view humans with suspicion. Carefree and laid-back, she quickly finds herself fascinated with Karuna's quest and even more fascinated with Karuna's squire.


The great-granddaughter of the paladin hero Estes, Lynette is a well-balanced warrior from Rezael who has trained for years to master both the physical and magical arts to make up for the fact that she didn't inherit her family's holy magic powers.


Now known as Overlord Darkloft, the evil one who has placed the isles of Luxaren in dire peril. Karuna has so many questions for her. What will happen when they finally meet again?

Scripts used:
  • Yanfly's Ace Core Engine, Message, Menu, Equipment and Battle systems!
  • Kread-EX's Animated Battlers!
  • Fomar0153's Compatible Customisable ATB/Stamina Based Battle System!
  • Coelocanth's Item Crafting system!
  • NeonBlack's No AutoShadows


And a special thanks to Red Nova, LockeZ, Crystalgate, Archeia_Nessiah, GreatRedSpirit, and everyone else in the Rpgmaker.net forums for their fantastic suggestions, advice, and general help!

(is there a way to export the game's script? It would help with checking canon compliance. I can write a program to do it if I have to, but figured I'd ask before possibly reinventing the wheel)


Well, there are text dump scripts

But Unity would have to add and run those herself? Unless she opened it up for other people to edit, like however Super Battle Kiddo Experience! and other Craze games do it.

The typical mechanics for TP very much remind me of how IP works in Lufia 2. Though, I don't recall if attacking increased IP in that game, like it does by default in VX Ace. The idea of it decaying after battle, however, is not default functionality.

Luxaren Allure isn't encrypted or anything, so yeah, anyone could use a script like that if they wanted ^_^

The second-best antagonist ever.
For truth. That whole duo was awesome.

That looks ideal, thank you.

It seems I can open it as a project in RPGMaker just fine. ....not that I have any idea how RPGMaker works, but I've meant to fix that for years. Happy to have an excuse for it.
Compiled an hour of Luxaren Allure OSTs for listening pleasures. Enjoy!

Wow! This is super cool! :DDDDD Thanks so much, eplipswich!!! ^_________^
Does the archive guard have a canonical name? The one that gives Merel nasty looks for stealing. I don't see one, but I've noticed that a lot of otherwise unremarkable NPCs actually do have names in LA.

I *love* that, by the way...though I note that the kings don't have names separate from their kingdoms, which is frustrating. New headcanon: Erdengard renamed his kingdom to his own name because he is a raging narcissist. Hotenshin did the same because an advisor sarcastically suggested it after the Love Labyrinth business, and he took the suggestion seriously because he is an idiot. ...I'm not sure about Parvian.

(I ask about the guard because I have a scene or two where his presence would be useful flavoring. Plus I found him amusing.)

I think I called this guard Davis in my head (about 50% sure) so you could go with that if you like XD

I wanted the rulers to effectively take the name of their kingdom as their own name when they were crowned, but in hindsight that does make things a bit tricky XD;

They told me I was mad when I said I was going to create a spidertable. Who’s laughing now!!!

Not really; it's standard practice with a lot of nobility, and I don't think anyone we talk to in game would be high enough rank to mention their given names.

Word of God is good enough. :-P

Is it really? You hear about King George, but not King England.

It's not a serious gripe. I think the only reason it sticks out to me is that the last thing I wrote something for was Chrono Trigger, where the Queen of Zeal is referred to literally as "QUEEN". That wasn't fun.

...the irony is that I eventually settled on exactly the workaround that Unity describes above. I have zero room to complain.

Not that it has anything to do with Unity's game-world (do what you want in your own game), but that's really not standard practice in the real-world. Real world monarchies places a lot of importance on their family's name and heritage, and for good reason since heritage was what their claims to the throne depended on.

Not as much with monarchs, but certainly with hereditary titles.
Not a bad game! The interactions were frequently pretty cute and actually made me care about the characters -- which is more than I can say for a number of games I've played.

Thank you very much! :D I'm super glad you enjoyed it! ^_^
Hello there Unity.
First off, loved it. The humour cracked me up multiple times but I loved the ridiculous disco balls using reference move. I'm also a big old sucker for a love story so I was all over this. To the point though, is there only one ending? I came across your game on tv tropes and it says there's three but I can't see how you get the others.

You're pretty magical too!

Thank you! I'm so glad you enjoyed it! :DDDDDDDDDDDD

Unfortunately, there is only one ending. I'm not sure why they put three endings on the TV Tropes page. Sorry about that. ^^;;

Oh it's fine, nothing to apologise for. Thought I'd ask before I spent hours trying to find a nonexistent ending given how the one I got wrapped everything up and teased at a Lynette spinoff(she's such a stalker in the ending fyi lol).

Hahaha, yeah! XD

Yeah, maybe someone on TV Tropes conflated the two, as Remnants of Isolation does indeed have three endings.
^ That was me... I remember reading about RoL. Maybe that's what happened...
