"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

Thanks for the kind words :3
I have to ask all the items you get from defeating monster, are there no other uses execpt selling them, like enhancement or alchemy.
Nope. Apart from Wasp Poison, there is no use for items outside of selling. I don't really intend on including anything like enhancement or alchemy either.

Edit: Though I could consider something like an 'exchange' quest where you exchange drop for items. This exchange quest can be repeated over and over.
Haha. Wow, The Ace is pretty hard. It forces me to used most of my potions. XD.
AND THERE IS A FINAL FORM WHAT!?? To think I got that far without tips.

Since I played by my style, I will try to get to the maximum level and need a lot of potions to spare.

Is the upcoming game gonna involved the rumored Lvl. 51?

Hmm, the exchange quest could be a good idea but wondering if it includes rare items too.
Now I remembered why I limited it to Level 40. It's because I haven't quite finalized the skills that they would learn after Level 40. (Especially the newer characters). Leveling them above 40 will cause them to not learn the new skills I decide to add.

The reason why I haven't finalized them is because the boss battles in the sequel will be... let's just say harder compared to the bosses you fought here. So you'll need the appropriate skills to counter them. I'm sorry for not clarifying this earlier.

I will see if it's possible to add them in manually in the next sequel.

Yes. It will contain unique charms. I realized this new exchange shop is a pretty good idea especially with the new side quest I'm coming up with which will be a huge drain on your resources. - Especially in early game.

Definitely. The sequel will solve 'most' of the oddities, questions, mysteries (Such as the true purpose of Axiom Group, various disappearances, suicide events and more) in Revert and new backstories.
Can you tell me the answers where Vincent first met Athena and Gary in the Royal Garden? I've already spent nearly 45 minutes trying to figure out the contradictions...

Thank you~ And yes, I enjoyed playing this hidden gem! Except for the phantom... It appears very often for me; apparently I'm not supposed to kill it if I want the true ending? Which is very hard to do since it appears in narrow passages; moves at the same speed as my character, and the fact I can't run from it in battle.

Also, is the password for the drawer for the puzzle in the study supposed to only have a 5 digit password? Because the clue to open the drawer only hints 5_6_4 and going to the drawer, it has 7 spaces for numbers.
Hi, SapphireFalcon

Sorry if you didn't expect me. Raze is too busy with his real life and it would take him a long time to reply back so I decided that I will help you on the drawer part.

The drawer is a 7 digit password, not a 5 digit password. The reason why the clue only has 5 digits is because the other digits are "hidden". The X-Ray Goggles you got is also used to look for hidden digits. If you stand in front of the clue to the drawer, you will see the first 3 digits but if you turn on the X-Ray Goggles, you will see the other 4 digits that was hidden. The digits from the clue are in order.


Thanks for helping me to answer :D

If I may add on about the Phantom...
The quest for that will automatically fail once you're in his study completing his puzzles :D

Despite the fact that it appears *quite* frequently, around 20% chance (Some more some less) on average per eligible map, I think it is harder to kill the Phantom to get the normal ending rather than trying to get the true ending.

The reason why I don't allow players to escape is if you want to make the true ending easier, you will need to deal substantial damage (At least below 50%) to the Phantom beforehand else the battle will take forever (And annoying) to complete.
Hey bro would you mind helping me in a puzzle/

So i'm stuck in a puzzle for the search of Lilium In the void entrance Level 4 i can't seem to get the puzzle solved the one with the computers Where there's clues inside the computer and you need to imput the Digits and pull the lever It would really mean alot if you would help me I'm really enjoying this game and i don't want to be stuck in a puzzle for the rest of my life

I'll help out since everyone helped me!

Here are the answers in order to make Athena's perfect tea

-50 seconds
-75 minutes
-2 minutes
-1 minute


And now back to asking for help >.>

-Where in Ixia forest can I go to trigger the true route ending? (I know it's Ixia 2 but I can't seem to get there? Also phantom is there harassing me which makes it even harder to find it)
-In the courtroom regarding the Doctor's disappearance, at one point, where I'm supposed to hold the "Q" button to show when a statement is unnecessary at one of the statements why
Athena might kidnapped the doctor
it won't register. I assume I'm doing something wrong; not a bug, since I see comments talking about certain parts of the game passed this section.

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.
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 ;)
*Note*: I'm not too sure how this works, but I've tried a script and it seems to stop all the crash. Do tell me if it stops your crashing. Or if it doesn't, tell me as well.
Hey Raze, that script you tried actually fixed the divided by zero/overkill bug crash. And you didn't think you can fix it but it works! :D
Thanks for fixing the crash.
That reminds me, it seems you were in a hurry to work on the sequel that you named Revert, Rever in the file name of version 1.2 XD.

-First of all, Raze probably will say Could you erm... explain? Thanks XD about why can't you get there. I am just wondering but have you met the girl from the other side quest "Boundary Split"? You will be locked in the true ending if you met the girl, defeating her, obtain the item and then head to Ixia Forest 2.
-Hmmm, about Court Trial 2, have you hold "Q" long enough to make a sound over one of the highlighted statements? Or isn't it the other button instead?

Raze, you have getting more fans lately..... are you Kirito by any chance or are you Shido? Oh, Asuna and Tohka is gonna be mad at you for being that popular. XD

Now why the 7.5 boss's "final form" have to spammed its strongest attacks. Isn't that against the rules? It will just make me lose every single time even though I have plenty of hp for my party and plenty of items to spare. Did you able to complete this in some tries? Give me some kind of advice for me to battle the boss. I am losing confidence to beating it. :(

It's in the General Guide Section :D
For your benefit, I'll leave it here.

The answer to the computer is: 69358
- Input the number of laptops before the digit that is a multiple of 2 (5 in front of 8. Cannot be in front of 6 because it is the first number)
- The first number is 6
- Multiply the third number with 2. That will be your first number. (Do opposite,let X be the third number X = 6/2 = 3, so the third number is 3)
Minus 1 from the second digit and that will be your last (9 - 1 = 8)
- The number 3 to the power of 2 is your 4th number from the right. (3^2 = 3 x 3 = 9, it is the 4th number from right, meaning it is the second from left.)

I haven't had quite the chance to try it recently, so I can only tell you based on my notes in terms of how you should defeat it.

For the first stage: Use Lilium for fast sweeping action.
For the second stage: Ignore the Butler, target the maid then 'Ace'.
For the third stage: There are two ways you can play it, either the safe way or the not so safe way.

Not so safe way: Damien (Support), Lilium (Before Stage 2 is finished, set up Devil's Mark), Lyeric, Isabel, Athena.

Damien for the consistent debuff, Lilium With Devil's Mark for High damage and high tanking ability, Lyeric for the all-in-one, Isabel and Athena for damage. You will want to focus on lowering the Ace HP to the 50% mark so he will start using a skill that makes removing his wing easier.

Every 10 turns (On Average), he will use his ultimate attack Plasma Storm then Railgun Flak which hits 36 times (Sometimes the other way around) - He will almost always use Plasma Storm after using Defense Redox so take note. If you want to be safe and fast, you will likely have to do Turn Counting from the start of the battle as it occurs in multiples of 10 from the first turn in stage 1. Once you've anticipated his attack, make sure you guard and heal up everyone.

If you can get past that easily, this battle is a cinch since there is nothing else!

If you want to be suuuuper safe, substitute Lilium with Raven who must have Guardian. Then use Guardian 2 turns prior and Aeric Void 1 turn prior when you anticipate his ultimate attack.

To be additionally safe, equip everyone with Paralytic Charm as Plasma Storm has a high paralyzing rate. Or if you can't afford for all, at least give Damien and Raven (or someone else like Lyeric) the charm.

You will also need good speed. Athena can deal AGI debuff. But you'll still need Accelerate Charms or Flash Charm (If you think you can afford DEF drops) so you can out speed Ravier.

Edit: Try not to use any medicine that can cause drowsiness or Withdrawal symptom, they cause AGI drops.

If anyone above has Andrographic Mist, that's a bonus as that will help alot in this fight!

I hope it helps! I haven't had the chance to replay this boss fight, but this is how I intended this boss to be defeated.

Thank you so much man...I'm enjoying the game i think you did quite well Making
such an amazing game also i love The soundtrack it's so damn epic
I've added the video guide to beating Chapter 7.5 for those interested, you can find it in Media.

Don't worry if you can't beat it now, you can attempt this chapter again in the sequel and he will be slightly nerfed to the level of other bosses as it is compulsory to clear this battle to continue :D

This is just a challenge for those who enjoyed the game.
Glad to see that people are tearing their hair out in frustration XD

I don't want to hear that from Raze, the No Name Strategist. No wonder you tease Black Rabbit so much.

If there is a reward, What is the reward for beating the Ace in Chapter 7.5? If not, I guess it is not a fun challenge. What kind of reward will we get when defeating the Ace in the sequel?
