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 yuri (lesbian romance) 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!

Happy Luxaversary!

It's the fourth anniversary of Luxaren Allure being complete! (and wow, like nearly 6 years since I started the project!)

Before I continue further, I just wanted to share some really awesome stuff, like this super cute artwork I got from ebeth recently! So adorable!!!



And as anyone who's been following the comments is no doubt aware, Error recently completed this really incredible fanfiction about Merel's continued research after the events of the game, and if you haven't checked it out, I urge you to do so, because it's really well written and enjoyable! :D

If you'll indulge me, I'd like to ramble a little about Luxaren Allure and future plans for games. I replayed LA recently this year, and I'm still pretty darn happy with how it turned out! My favorite part is probably the Hotenshin Contest of Love, as what started as a silly idea also happened to wring out a lot of funny character moments and some drama and just a lot of fun.

While I still get a lot of great comments both here and on Luxaren's itch.io page, I still felt like maybe I went a bit overboard with the density of RPG battles in the game, not to mention the game has a very slow pace, as I prioritized exploring around the isles over really investing players with a deep plot right away.

At the same time, I kinda like that more relaxed pace, but I can see how it didn't gel with some players and I could have done more to hook people right away. And it means people who primarily wanted yuri content had to power through all the exploring and battling just to get to content they wanted. Some even cheated to get there (which is fine, you do what makes you happy :DDD). Makes me think I could have done better, though.

As you probably know, I've been working on Weird and Unfortunate during the years since LA's release, but I've been longing to do more projects like Luxaren, with fantasy settings and cute lesbian relationships. During RMN's Rainbow of Positivity event, I got that chance, and released a demo of Date Knights, a short RPG with a focus on a Holy Knight and Dark Knight who used to date and meet again for a mission years later.



I really need to go back and flesh this demo out into a full game, but if you haven't checked it out, please feel free to give it a play and let me know what you think ^_^

And there's also the matter of what I work on next after Weird and Unfortunate. It'll probably be a remake of Lilies of Vanigale (a game I almost finished in RPG Maker XP over like ten years ago) or I'll work on Eye of Uzola (a game I started in RPG Maker 2000 as a teenager).

What sort of game would you like to see from me in the future? :DDD While I can't say it'll absolutely influence what I make next, I am curious XD


The Lilies Cast, as drawn by Sooz!


Okay, that's enough rambling and reminiscing from me! Time to get back to work on RPG making! Hopefully I can finish Weird and Unfortunate early in 2020 and get to make even more games! A huge thanks to everyone who's following me and cheering me on! Seriously, it means a lot to me!

Hello, everyone! I just wanted to let you know that I updated the 65% download with Depthsfiend Lurlock nerfed a little, and I made the hint about how to beat him a little more obvious. If anyone is still having trouble with him and he seems way overpowered, please let me know! ^_^
Few minutes into the game and already I love Karuna! <3 Really looking forward to the completion of this game, I've definitely found a gem here. xD

And I really appreciate the cut down on random encounters (those can get really annoying) uvu

Haha, I'm afraid to say that that's impossible. I'll have the finished product sometime on 2015, but there's no way I can finish in the next couple of days XD

Oh wait, you totally got me! February stops at 28! I feel silly now :D

That's OK Unity, you need not feel silly.

I just looked at my calendar and noticed that you're right. Feb. ends on the 28th. MY BAD :(

OK, I'm subbed so will track your progress.
I hate playing partial games. I've done that, then put them in the corner of my desktop and when the new release is posted, I forget what happened in the first
release :(

Your game REALLY looks well done so I'll wait for the final release and play that.
Then of course, you'll update it and I will have to play it from the beginning again.....poor me. :)

You can go ahead and play now and you shouldn't ever have to play it from the beginning again. When the final version comes out, just copy your save file from this version to the final version.

That would totally be an option for Linkis! Being a tester, I would be inclined to go from the beginning.
Sooz
They told me I was mad when I said I was going to create a spidertable. Who’s laughing now!!!

I think the problem was more that they'll forget what the hell was going on between demo and full version. Which can't be fixed until we have like neural jacks or something. :(
hey really love the game so far and the characters! love the devlopment of them and can't wait to finish the game ^_^

@Luigi01080: According to my notes, the solution to that particular puzzle was...


Dark, Earth, Water, Poison, Fire, Wind, Thunder, Ice, Light.

Wow, what an honor! Thank you very much ^_^
Alright, I finally finished the demo of the game, and I'm already waiting for the full release! I'm betting it will be great! :D

Having that said, I have two questions:
1) How close you would say you are to complete the game?
2) By this point I have 5 Crystalized Hopes, I didn't miss anyone, did I?

Good luck with the rest of the game! :)

Thanks a lot! I'm glad you're enjoying the game :DDDDDDD

As for your questions, 1)I'm about 75%-80% done, but there's a lot of time-consuming assets needed for the end of the game that I still have to make, so predicting when I'll be done is hard. I'm planning for before the end of the year, but it's hard to get a good estimate. Work on it is going well, though ^_^

2) Yep, you should have 5 of them at this point. However, if anyone missed one, you can't really backtrack at certain points, so I'm going to have a character at the Seer's Abode (a location near the end of the game) who will give you an extra one if you missed one.

Thanks again! :DDDD
Remind me to play this game as well after I'm done with my IGMC entry. XD
