Celebrating Over 5000 Downloads

As of this day, October 8th, 2011, Dragon Fantasy has reached 5000 downloads! Amazing, isn't it? I didn't think it'd ever come this far, or that I'd be making a blog like this every few Months! It's just too bad some of my other games aren't near as popular as this. Ha ha.

So again, I offer to all those who've downloaded this game thanks, and appreciate whatever time--be it great or small--that you've put into playing any of my projects. Thank you!

In other news, I'm in the process of rebooting the Dragon Fantasy series. I finally know what direction I want to go and how I want to story to work, so I've decided that simply RESTARTING would be the best way to do things. How? Well, simply call the titles within the series so far "non-canon" once this new game is released onto the internet. And don't worry, it's still retaining its NES style with MIDIs and what-not. However this time around I'm foregoing the World Map and making exploration akin to Secret of Mana and the like. So I hope you all keep an eye out for when it makes an appearance in the future!

If my calculations are correct, DF Redux will be in the other slot next week.

edit : Or not O.o Seems like you had two days of glory.
Hahahaha. I'll wait for it to be released before even thinking about expecting another spot on the main page. =P
This look snazzy. I wish these sorts of games worked on a console.
Hi im playing this but i have a problem. I have the ship for the first time but i cant remember what i needed to do or to go here.
I may be two years too late, but all you've got to do is sail directly south from where you boarded your ship. After that, well... there's basically no other use for the ship, sadly. I managed to utilize it a LITTLE better in the sequel, but took full advantage of it in Heroes of Tsufana.
I just realized it's been just under a year since this had any noticeable traffic, and I fear the little gem will get lost in the shuffle with the Heroes of Tsufana and the DF1 remake.

I was initially planning to review this game, since I've only played it 3 times in the last 2 or 3 years (which now tops the replays I've done of my most beloved console rpg's), but I don't think I can say or do anything more that hasn't already been said or done, especially since the game is already one of the highest rated games here.

While I much prefer the Dragon Quest resources of the later installments, the combo of Final Fantasy tiles along with FF and DQ monsters and music work well together, and I was especially surprised that I never caught the Paradise Blue reference in my previous two playthroughs.
The more time that passes, the greater the regret I feel for naming the series "Dragon Fantasy" and not something even a REMOTELY BIT ORIGINAL! If I google the name, all I usually see are articles and images related to that commercial indie RPG with the same name. Regardless, what's done is done, and if I up and change it NOW--all of a sudden and out of the blue--people probably won't associate those games with being in this series. Quite a dilemma! Hahahaha.

Anyway, that has absolutely nothing to do with your comment, but I was in the ranting mood, so I just had to get that out of my system. But seriously, what could you have expected from my 15~ year old mind? The original game is actually much older than the completion date implies, because this game is ALSO a remake (thus "Dragon Fantasy: The Remake" being the game's official title). The original was much worse, and was created when I first discovered RPG maker and got hold of a few NES chipsets 2 or so years before I started working on this game.

I'm glad you think so highly of this game! You're not the first person to replay one of my games more than they would a high-budget commercial game, and that just makes me feel totally awesome. DF definitely shows its age, though, and unlike most other people, when I go through it again I just see a list of things that I did terribly or could vastly improve upon! With DFR, I'm trying to keep as much of the original game in tact as I can while also making it a greater overall experience.

While a review would've been appreciated, I think something like that would benefit one of the two games you referenced (DFR or HOT) more than it would this relic hahaha.
You had no way of knowing the name would eventually backfire, and I always thought the name was a clever take on the Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest series.

I've often wondered if somebody came across your game, realized it was a free indie with commercial rips, and then felt they could make a game with their own resources, give it the same name, commercialize it, and then ride on the success of your own work; because I swear that prior to the DF commercial game, your games popped up every time the title was searched.
Always a possibility! I wish I'd been the one to commercialize the name and game... but oh well. I'm sure that, if I ever do want to make a commercial game with original resources, etc. that I'll be able to pull something from the DF universe and utilize that to make a decent name. Until that time, Dragon Fantasy shall march on!
