"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

Hahaha thanks a lot for the help. I'll add that to the backlog of bugs to fix in the next update.
pls hw do u pass livsier forest puzzle it always says i made 1 mistake.

scratch that solved
No Problem, Raze.
I was wondering if you can help me on the Court Trial 2 Rebuttal Phase: Follow Up on one of the questions that talks about Ms. Carafield and I think it was the 3rd question I have to contradict. I tried to guess the answer by using most of them evidences and I can't figure out the answer. Sorry, if it requires you to think hard or something like that, I just hate guessing.
He contradicted himself.

"Meaning, we won't be able to trace her full identity and it is within our full right to protect our customer's privacy." (C9)

Just so you know, the identity of these individuals can STILL be traced via a Government Database. (C8)


Since he contradicted himself in these 2 statements, the answer is:

I have been trying to find the side quest visitor from the other world phantom and human but through my first playthrough i could not find them so i'am playing again, any hints, thanks.
Phantom is not out yet. I'm currently working on it plus a few bug fixes as well.
You can find the side quest for Boundary Split (Human) at Ixia Town from one of the NPCs sitting on a bench.

Since you've already played once, I'll recommend that you wait for Phantom to come out :D
aaaa it was so hard when fighting god hades and athena >< athena always dies first, what should I do?
Hey anakyung718, I also had that problem too until Raze gave someone these tips on how to defeat Athena and God Hades.

author=HumanCalc
Made quite some progress. However a certain god was just too hard :(
Spent hours so gonna give up. Just can't kill quick enough.
Not sure if underleveled or underequipped. Was too poor to buy some of the later weapons :(
Time to restart and complete some of those quests I missed.
author=Raze
I'm able to quite consistently beat the boss without doing any side quest and using only the equipment provided. (Luck factor is still involved)

Here's some tips that I used, tell me if it works:

1. Make sure you keep Ventos Entity alive - It can use Medical Mist to offset the effects of Chronic Bleed Out. (Thereby stalling the battle)
2. Use Ravier. He's your greatest asset
3. Spam AOE when the 4 entity is summoned. With the 'Cover' State, you can quickly eliminate the Entities as fast as possible as attacks directed to Athena will hit the entity instead when her HP is low enough.
4. Use Damien exclusively for support - Mainly defense control to boost your damage output and attack control to reduce damage taken.
5. Use Lyeric for the 'Defence Ignore' state on the God, you'll see that your damage output is significantly increased and can overcome the 5% medical mist.
6. Make sure that when Ventos Entity dies, you're well set up to finish the God once Medical Mist runs out (Meaning all healed up, defense at its lowest etc)
7. Oh, the god is also vulnerable to frost ;)

Thanks for taking the time to write the issues! I hope the tips help.

Hey, Raze! Thanks for the contradiction answer. I can't believe I didn't think of that. Apparently, after rescuing Athena, battling the Blood Faction is way too hard and Caron kept using Feather of Despair and Medical Mist to heal God Hades by like 3000 HP while God Hades use his draining power to almost 1-Hit KO my party. Do you have any good tips to beat them?
Glad the tips helped you on the first battle.

The final battle is a little tricky one.

You'll need DOT (Damage over Turn) to reliably dwindle Caron's health. Not only that, Feather of Despair also removes all Status Ailment, so you also need to reliably SPAM the DOT as well.

To do that, you need to start by clearing God Hades Reflects by allowing him to HEAL UP in order to allow Ravier's AOE attacks to go through without damaging himself --> Razor Vacuum, Iron Gale and Iron Precipice for Bleed out. Once the God's HP threshold hits >75%, it will stop spamming Reflects every other turn.

You'll also need Lyeric for the slightly more reliable Bleed Out on his reploxion. If he's petrified, he needs to die so he becomes usable.

Burn, Curse and Frost also works on Caron. So you can consider going for Frost through Icy Shroud by spamming Ice attacks or Burn through Blaze by spamming Fire attacks (This is where Elemental States come to play). But ultimately Bleed out is more reliable because Ravier's attack has higher hit count = higher chances.

You'll need Damien for Attack Control and Defense control to remove his buffs and Lyeric for Defense Ignore. If you want you can include *Spoiler Character* for tanking purposes on his Guardian ability and Blood Drive for Bleed out.

You'll generally want a 'Offensive Party Setup' (The Witch) --> 'Defensive DOT Party Setup' (Caron) --> 'Offensive Party Setup' (God)

Forget about the God when Caron appears, his theme song plays for a reason ;)
I'm having some issues with the game it tends to crash sometimes when encountering battles. Error comes up saying RGSS3 has stopped working and must close the program.
I also have the same issue after every 1 battle the game crashes so I have to save after every battle to load and continue from.
author=Raze
I see. I occasionally have this problem before a fight.
But this only happens in Prologue 1 for some reason.
Till today I haven't found a cause for it.

Yeah, I also had that problem in the forest where Dr.Alicia was found. Something must be wrong with the system.

After so many attempts, I have beat the Blood Faction. Your tips definitely helped me along with my tip which is to flinch/stun them and I had less potions to use so I had to use Lilium's Invast Heal and Damien's Heal. Anyway, his theme song? I didn't hear anything. I must have mute the music. :)

I'm not sure if this would work but try removing RGSS300.dll from the game's System folder and see if it solves it.

There's an even harder boss coming in Chapter 7.5 :D
Thanks RenMana And Raze >< Well, I think Athena more hard than caron lol :v but why to be continued >w< I will wait for the next, thanks for the game Raze :3

Yep, you are welcome. (`ω´)
Anakyung718, it was supposedly gonna be 14 chapters until Raze decided to be just 7 chapters plus an extra chapter(7.5). Caron has Feather of Despair which temporarily raises all of his party's stats and Medical Mist which heals them 1500 HP on average. I had to stunned/flinched them to beat them. Man, I feel like I want to know some information on the upcoming games, Black Galax: Phantom Rising and Black Galax: Blue Moon.

For the side-quest Boundary Split (Human), you can only take this quest in Chapter 4 only right? Not in later chapters? Actually scratch that. It works. I was gonna ask you for your help because I found this. I encountered it after I defeated the 3rd boss but I was still battling but like no enemies left and I attacked again and this happens. I later fix that problem by retrying again and this time guarding at the end. What a bug. I never knew it involves divided by 0. XD (◕‿◕)

Yeah, I can see that it is gonna be a hard boss when Ravier said it and you post this in one of the earlier posts. I'm trying my best to farm and grind for me in order to beat the Ace.

author=Raze
Edit: There's still a boss more powerful than the God waiting in Chapter 7.5 XD
Man, you must be happy saying that. XD

After you said
author=Raze
I'm glad to finally announce that I've finished the core game. Now it's time for me to touch up on the dialog, flavor texts, kill bugs and work on the Extra Chapter which if you complete, you'll get a very special charm that you can only get by defeating The Ace! Thus the chapter's name.

The game will cap player's level at 40 due to plot related reasons instead of the stated Level 50 due to plot related reasons. Thought I'll say it now.

If everything goes well, I should be able to release the game by 21st April which is coincidentally the day where the events of Black Galax: Revert will end. Look forward to it! Thank you for your interest!
Yes, plot related reasons huh? It looks like I can go higher than that. All the way to 50. So you later changed your mind huh? ヾ(*`Д´*)ノ"

Is there another way to earn more gold credits without farming or looking into chests?
I don't want to do lottery because it is a 1 in 100 chance I win.

Raze, I loved the soundtracks. Looks like we both love anime so much. ♪♬((d⌒ω⌒b))♬♪
Excuse me for the randomness but be surprised. LOL

No problem! Thanks for playing!

Man, I feel like I want to know some information on the upcoming games.

After reviewing my schedule, I don't think I can work on the side games 'Blood Legacy' and 'Blue Moon' without having enough time to finish Phantom Rising - Which is a pity for me but it can't be helped XD

But don't worry, Phantom Rising will talk a bit about the events of the 2. - Especially Blue Moon.

I'm currently working on a 'final' update for this game which includes something that kind of (Keyword: Kind of) links to the next game. (Which if you've been plowing through the comments you'll know ;))

Phantom Rising will definitely be shorter than Revert. I aim to complete it in one year if possible (Read: Unlikely).

author=RenMana
Man, you must be happy saying that. XD


Yes, I openly admit I love saying it. Also, there is no need to grind. I made it such that there is really no need to grind XD

If you play Chapter 7.5, you'll understand the *Plot Reason*. Kind of unintended, I forgot to change back XD After thinking about it though, I think I'll just leave the max at level 50.

Apart from grinding and side quests? Nope.

I will be in awe if you can identify every single anime reference I threw in and the animes this game is influenced by.

Now for some bug fixing, could I ask for you to be a little more specific? How did you battle when there are no enemies? (I guess you're referring to the battle with the girl?)

Aw, It had to be shorter. I love long games. It said it gonna be shorter than 24 hours. I would be happy if there are bonus missions and more side-quests. Here my advice, take you time reviewing it. Don't rush things. And you are welcome. :D

Grinding can be pretty fun especially if you want to make the game easier! But we've made that completely optional! You can play the whole game without having fought a single random encounter and still somehow beat the game. Of course, you're rewarded for actually grinding. Not with just Gold Credits, but more...
author=Raze
I won't dictate you on how you should play the game as you get to decide how you want to play! Who knows? Maybe you might play better than me and beat me at my own game! (Quite Literally) So go on and have fun!

Sorry about the emotions. I didn't know you have anime soundtracks in the game so in the beginning of the game, I muted the music because I don't remember why though. I am bad at references though because I don't know which is which. XD
I don't cringed. Like I said earlier, I muted the music until Chapter 7.5 where I just enjoy the music.Excuse me for the randomness but be surprised.

author=Raze
Now for some bug fixing, could I ask for you to be a little more specific? How did you battle when there are no enemies? (I guess you're referring to the battle with the girl?)
Bear with me. Here how it goes. After I encounter the visitor and embark to find the things needed. I guess two places where I found the core which I got it before the quest and the dimension girl which I stumbled upon while wondering why I couldn't enter it earlier. During the battle, I mainly used Lilium's Emerald Storm which dealt 2000ish damage and kept attacking her while she use her magic to boost her stats. She summon her spirits and I quickly defeated but I defeat her first which Lilium's Emerald Storm deal so much damage, she wasn't defeated until I had to defeat the spirits before defeating the girl. After I attack her again, this happen and I thought what is going on.

I thought is there invisible enemies. So I click the attack button and the divided by 0 shown up. It never happen again when I didn't lower her HP to zero before the spirits were defeated.

Chapter 7.5 on sector 3 puzzle, I couldn't find a way to get pass the moving up and down ghost. There is a left arrow and I can't find a secret path without getting caught by them. I am stuck on it. :(

Sounds like it might be a bug with the way the game handles overkill damage when they are made immune to incapacitation - which I don't think I can fix. But thanks for telling me! This quest can only be attempted in Chapter 4 so that'll be promptly fixed ;)

The 'plot reason' that I love to use so often made it hard for me to come up with a decent side story idea like the one you're seeing in this game. But I'll see how, thanks for the advice. It made me feel a little better :D
Not to rush you bt how long until visitors from another world phantom is out, loooooonnng or long or short.
Hard to say whether it'll be loooong or long or short. Probably about 1 week to 1 month depending on how real life treats me XD
