Magic is a curse. A plague upon the world and those that live in it. Those that are born with this curse unwittingly sap the mana from the earth they stand in. In order to prevent these abominations from draining away the world's lifeblood, they are locked away in a castle in an isolated dimension. It is in this castle that the cursed are to remain, removed from society so that their magic does not harm normal people. They are to be kept here for the rest of their miserable lives.

At least, that's the way it should have been...

Suddenly, a loud crash is heard. A young girl, kept apart from the rest of the castle, looks up from the ground. The magical barrier that prevented her escape slowly dissipates. Standing up, she pushes open the gate and finds her first taste of freedom. Guide her as she teams up with a renegade mage boy to search for the truth behind the castle, her unique magic, and a way to escape.

Try re-downloading and re-extracting. It might just be a one-off error, a corrupted download or an issue with your computer. Do you have winzip/7zip/winrar? They're usually used to uncompress files so it might also be that. (They're all free to use. 7zip is probably the best of the three to use.)
I must be out of touch with the actual quality of RM games. I can't seem to find anything fun about this game. The story premise sounds unique enough, but the execution of that and just about everything else seems mediocre at best. Sigh, don't mind me though. I have very discriminating tastes and maybe expect a little too much from RM games.

I got bored and gave up after about 30 minutes.

@darcy:


A very similar sequence to getting Ending 2 ("Sacrificial Lamb"), actually. However, instead of leaving the hill when you're just Melchior, go into the menu, and select "Skills". Melchior should have a skill called "Loyal Melody". Use it.

So outside of a new dungeon is there anything else in this game that is particularly new? Since, I'm not sure I want to play through this game a third time if there is only a new area to explore.

I guess, I could do a Let's Play of the Deluxe version. Albeit, I'm probably not the most adept Let's Player out there.

And, on a tangential note I managed to get someone to take down all of his games because I had done a Let's Play on one of his projects.

Well, there's a lot of new things in the Deluxe version: A new Innate skill for bother characters, new enemies, new equipment, etc. along with the obvious new dungeon. But I'd recommend holding off on a new LP.

We're working with Degica and RMW on improving the game even further. I'll detail more info in a blog later since nothing has been hammered down as of yet. It's up to you ultimately if you want to LP the Deluxe version, but if you're on the fence, I wouldn't feel obligated to do it again.

Also:

I would VERY much like to know how that went down.

Don't stress about it too much. I had someone do that after I put up my review, well they only had the one game but they stuck it into wall climbing paint after I posted it. I finally managed to track them down somewhere else and convince them to reopen it, but it was weird.

I've also had games go wall climbing after I made some comments, generally about the lack of grammar and atmosphere in horror games. Those ones disappeared never to return, which is kind of upsetting since it's not what you are commenting/reviewing/LP'ing for, it's to give feedback on the good and bad, to say what got your interest and what you think needs work. I just guess some devs are more sensitive than others and find even the slightest negative thing to be an attack on their baby.

Well, I did a Let's Play of Redwall10's "The OutCasts" and he apparently took offense at me pointing out at the start of my Let's Play that it suffers from spelling and grammar issues. He seemed even more offended at the thought of me reviewing his game and putting it up on youtube and even sent me a message asking me to delete my Let's Play and to not create a video review for the game.

Though, why he was so upset is beyond me since "The OutCasts" had already received four text reviews many months ago that pointed out that there are issues with the spelling and grammar in the game.

And, those issues probably aren't that much of a surprise when you consider the fact that Redwall10's first language isn't English and that he isn't fluent with the language either. In fact, he told me in his message that he used a spell checking program to catch his spelling mistakes. Of course, this didn't catch some of the issues since the words were spelled correctly even if they weren't the words he was intending to use.

As for why I played the game in the first place. Well, it was one of the few games even on this site to feature a black character in the lead role.
Congratulations on winning the Game Maker Contest!
I know its a bit late.
I've been meaning to make this post for a long while but I've been really busy and still am actually. You three already know I love Remnants but still I couldn't help but want to congratulate you all. I knew Remnants had a lot of potential. You already got over 1600 and I hope you gets many more downloads.

I am personally totally down with getting congratulations whenever. :D Thanks so much!

Don't work too hard!
Got all 3 endings!


The last one was pretty hard to figure out since there was no hint that Melchior learned that skill. Maybe have it display in the last battle in the results to keep it organic?
Reading the description this game sounds familiar to me. Whelp the only thing to do now and download and play it then come back and give another comment....So I will be back.
This game is great, I love the custom graphics, the tone, and the battles... The whole thing reminds me a lot of Wild ARMs, which is definitely a good thing (no idea if any reference to that game was intentional, though; but the ancient magical dungeon atmosphere, the "apple" item, the demonic sound effects when you interact with sealed doors...)

Anyway, I really like it so far.

edit: I also love that the characters' portraits move around as they talk (or don't, in Celesta's case). There's just a lot of nice little details that get like a thousand thumbs up from me.

Really enjoying this so far! The battle system's pretty neat and I find myself actually having to think about my next move instead of just mindless spamming so that's nice. I'm really digging the character's sprites and portraits. They are very expressive and unique.
