"Cliva's technological progress is a miracle of its time."
"We don't give two shits about what those Human Rights Activists think."

Synopsis:

13th April 2020, Ravier Connor, Director and Biggest Shareholder of Vizrel Electronics Industry, invites Damien Raizen to play test his ‘Warfare Simulation’. Claiming that it’s a game, Damien, an avid gamer, decides to give it a shot only to be told later that the actual game requires at least 4 people to attempt.

In their time going through the events that are happening around them, they slowly realized Ravier’s aim for recruiting them in his game stretches far and beyond ‘play testing’ his so-called ‘Warfare simulation RPG’

Introduction:

Black Galax: Revert is an urban fantasy, paranormal horror mystery with a pinch of romance game.

It is a story of uncovering the mysterious nature of a particular artifact called ‘Black Galax’ that has existed for centuries while exploring each of the character’s past and how they are related to the events that are about to unfold during the game.

If you are a fan of an in-depth world where politics (autocracy) and history is discussed, references to anime and games, scientific stuff, occult, characters, tons of foreshadowing with no direct answer, a seemingly-convoluted-but-actually-not plot, String Theory, and some more themes that cannot be said because spoiler, you might like this game.


"Reality Warp..."
"Playing against a player called reality is not fun. It's exhilarating"

1. Plot plot plot!
2. Narrative Side Story quests that fleshes out the world of BGR!
3. Extra Boss
4. Achievements
5. Tons of puzzles
6. Instead of equipment, you have over 40 'Charms' to customize your characters!
7. Can zombies be counted as a feature?
8. Limit Minute Shop to save your hard earned Gold Credits!
9. Thought intriguing Court Trial cases - Kinda subjective...
10. Turn Based Battle + Action Battle System - QTE, Reinforcements, phases...
11. Features about 7 playable characters + more temporary members!
12. Exchange Shop!
13. Most importantly, Challenging! - Subjective though...
14. About 15-20+ hours of gameplay

Better English Patch + Bug Fix & Rebalances

Finally, an update! Nope, this time it's for Revert. After compiling some of the bugs users have discovered, I've finally come out with a version that fixes all of it. While bug fixing is part of the agenda, the main point for this update is to address the issue of poor English and balance issues. So without further ado, let's get into the meat of this update.

But before that... an announcement?
Have your save files ready? It's likely I'll release Chapter 8 soon (Likely next month if all goes well) for testing! The main thing I want to make sure is everything transitions smoothly between Revert's save into Rewrite. While giving you a sneak preview of Rewrite!

There will also be a remake of the battle HUD for Rewrite! Too bad I can't introduce the HUD update for Revert due to lack of testing and it's still incomplete...

Grammar Improvements:
General grammar/spelling improvements for the entire game. Changed a lot of awkward/complex sentences, punctuation and spelling errors. Again, I won't claim my English to be perfect, but I believe I've improved over the last... 5 years?, and it should read MUCH MUCH better compared to the previous version.


Remade Marzus city map added into Revert. With minor changes.

QOL Addition:
- Option to disable message sound effect.

New Additions:
- Updated Maps for Marzus City to match with Rewrite. (Additional credits required will be added on Rewrite's gamepage when it comes out)
- Adds a new element: Corrupt. All living beings are vulnerable to attacks from this element. Currently only two enemies from a side quest utilizes this element. Does not affect the main storyline for Revert.

Main Game Fix/Rebalance:
- Equalize HP values for both Gary & Vincent from Fragment 3
- Fixed sound file break caused by Revival Charm.
- Reduced attack damage by Fragment 3 Part 2 enemy
- General minor nerfs to Prologue 2 enemies to fit better with the difficulty curve. Prologue 2 shouldn't be this hard XD (Unless you grind)
- Overall EXP nerf from some enemies and increased maximum EXP curve
- Swapped ATK Control and DEF Control. Damien will learn ATK Control at Level 15 and DEF Control at Level 25.
- Changed the text in DQ 3 to clarify the number's position in the code.
- Implemented a hard fix so players can exit from Lemois Town due to a bug that is also fixed.
- Changed Ravier's HP Bar color for consistency with Rewrite.
- Modified a section in Rebuttal Phase: Follow Up for less ambiguity in Court Trial #2.
- Adjusted sound volumes in city areas so there wouldn't be any jarring transition in volume.
- Improved GC drop for Caladium army enemies
- Fixed last quest not completing.
- Fixed Chapter 4 Library from showing different contents of the books.
- Tweaked some of the stats for Charms and Weapons.

Chapter 7.5 Fixes/Rebalances-(Don't read if you don't want spoilers)
- Fixed renaming Raven to Gary
- Fixed Ravier's Wing mechanics, he will only lose Life Support when both wings are destroyed.
- Athena is artificially leveled before being introduced instead of waiting till Sector 1.


Side Quest Fix/Changes:
- Changed Phantom's HP Bar Color & Attack Element for consistency with Rewrite.
- Changed Lord Alter's HP Bar color & Death mark's state into 'Marked for Death' to prevent confusion with Rewrite.
- Fixed Port's door triggering Chapter 6 cutscene.
- Slight nerf to Colette's battle and fixed Vest Bracer mechanic for her battle.
- Removed concert ending dialogue on return from Parallel world.
- Nerfed EXP gain from Life Jewel's final boss. (Seriously, it gives WAAAYY too much :p)

Afterword
That's all for now, and for the last time - the LAST UPDATE for the game! Please no more bugs pl0x , thanks goodbye, I wanna concentrate on Rewrite. (Jk, please report if there are bugs.)

Why has this game received so little feedback? It's pretty awesome for me.
Probably because there's no demo yet ;D
Sounds fascinating, very excited to see where this goes! Consider your game subscribed :) that court trial bit sounds interesting, have you played Phoenix Wright AA? I love visual novels, they're brilliant

Yea, I love Visual Novels too in general, but my English isn't exactly top notch and it isn't my first language either, so there might be grammar errors here and there and I think Court trial needs a bit more polishing in my opinion. As for the game you suggested, I haven't played it yet but I might check it out :D

Thanks for the interest!
I went to exit the starting town near the store, and the game said it was missing a tile-set and crashed. Other than that, good job so far. Though i'm kinda confused on the whole hostage situation...

Does that hinder your game progress?

Where exactly? The road leading out from the south or north?

It will be explained at some point.

I'm sure there's a good reason for it in the plot line, I was just put off by the presentation. All the people just stand there in an orderly group without saying anything, Vincent doesn't even try to fight back when a wimp like the main character can beat him, and when you do beat the boss, your char gets moved back to the main entrance and acts like nothing happened. Maybe you should show the police officers exit (or reassuring the crowd) and Vincent talking to your character about it in the same cut scene.

I've played a bit more since and the battle system seems solid. I love how there are actually negative side affects to using items, and the battle music is just spectacular.
I see... Alright I'll see what I can do.
But Vincent can't fight is because he only has one tech. But I'll take your police suggestion and see how I can improve it. Thanks!

Eh... Don't worry, the game goes with increasing difficulty, meaning it will start out simple to ensure you get the full grasp of certain elements before making it more difficult.

Also, there are instructions within the game itself. This guide is only for those who need a more detailed explanation as opposed to the instructions in game :D
Yahoo, I just downloaded it! Gonna be playing it when I have some free time
Found another game breaking bug (or missing file, more specifically). Its right when you enter into Valor academy and take the middle door, says cannot find a file (Damien_face_diff_exp).

As a side note, is there a way to sneak past the spy bots? cause every time I try they spot me and I have to try and sprint past.

Thanks for informing me, but I don't think that hinders the game progress so far.

Nope,unfortunately there's no way to sneak past them as they don't follow line of sight rules. And it will be pretty difficult to implement them so I only reserve that for stealth missions (In chapter 2).
Interesting, I'll be keeping an eye on this..good luck! :)
