Deja~Vu Chronicles

-The end is just the beginning-



The four adventurous heroines Miruka, Hanako, Edelweiss and Aquamarin have come a long way. They fought their way to level 99 and finally stand before the world's worst nightmare, the "evil warlock", who's evil plans contain nothing but malice! However, can they stop him? Can they stop the summoning of the bringer of apocalypse, Pyramid Golem in time? Will their adventure really end with victory over him?
Or, will this be only the beginning of a whole different kind of adventure... a challenge of courage and friendship through confusing time-leaps.

It's a short, classic adventure in fast forward ( or rather, "in rewind"? ) with a few comedic elements and a (hopefully) curious 'background' story.

Thank you. It is a very short game - it was made so you can easily beat it in under 1 hour! So, let's see how long it will take you, if you play it - good luck and most important, have fun! : )

Thank you, I do hope it is actually somewhat entertaining to you, too. : )

Ok I'm playing it and I've found a bug, not a game breaker, but I've just jumped back for the second time and I'm having a conversation with someone that isn't there. I think it's supposed to be Aqua and her 'friend' from the dialogue but there are no character sprites for them. I'm not sure if you've got a conditional branch for the event, but if you do I'd say have a look at it, since the dialogue is running properly, but the sprites are missing.



I can continue, and I will, but you'll need to fix this.

Also found another one, when you walk into the transporter room you get a dialogue about the water gem but the face graphic doesn't disappear after the dialogue and gets in the way in later maps...see below it's covering the chest, I only noticed the chest was there because it doesn't cover the whole screen.

Ok -


oooh! thank you very much, those are some important observations o.o i am going to fix those right away, huh.

No problem. The second one did eventually fix itself when I ran into another dialogue event, but for a while there it was in the way.

edit: I ran into a game breaker. When you are in the final sequence and you've transported back to the finale that green cube is in the way of your progression and since you no longer have the emerald fork or the character that can wield it, you can't progress. In addition when you interact with the green cube you get the original dialogue event about needing an emerald fork to destroy it.

Sorry I can't continue.

ah - well yes and no... : P

maybe i should add an alternate info dialogue to give you a hint at that point but, when you are at this "final" part "again" - you are not really supposed to go up there in the first place : ) it's way too dangerous. sure, you CAN in theory - but - you'd walk forever in circles and it wouldn't progress the story. XD
on that map, you have to find some other place to go this time... : )
and that other place makes the story continue.

Ah Ok, well I'll have a look then, but yes I would remove the dialogue since it shows 2 characters you no longer have. I'd also make it impossible to enter the room with the sliding puzzle and the fork chest, because if you walk in there and then back out to the first room you get the dialogue of the two remaining characters again (about avoiding fights).

e: ok finished it. One more fix I would suggest, during the conversation in front of the sealed crystal you have both party character sprites showing, then after the conversation is over you regain control of the party but the sprite of Hanako is still standing there she doesn't erase after the scene.

Also and I'm putting this in spoiler because it is. This is only for Nebelsoft because if anyone else reads this it will give away the end. So don't.

You need to include a line, either from Lord Nebelstern or from Miruka as she's working it out when talking to the priest about why the "Evil Warlock' has done all those horrid things, like freeing the Pyramid Golem and the Tecnomegami. I imagine it's because he's looking for a way to free the Goddess from that supposed unbreakable seal, but if you don't include it irrespective of who he is, he's still done horrible things in the eyes of the world, and is therefore still a bad guy. You need to give him a reason why he isn't otherwise the motivation of Miruka to go back one more and stop the priest doesn't make sense.


Also another small problem, in the dungeon where you find Edelweiss, when you confront the Warlock he's in a room full of chests, but you can't open them as as you walk through the door you are automatically in a dialogue that leads to a fight and then once the fight is over immediately transported out. If you meant those chests to be opened you need to change the sequence and have the transport out happen as you leave the room.
ah, thought provoking observations and great hints, again thank you very much! : ) i will look into those issues and have them improved / fixed. ; D
thanks so much for checking it out nhubi!
there's also supposed to be 2 endings, depending on how many fragments you collected, but that's also not tested yet ^^ ( it's just a minor thing tho )

So there is only one ending at the moment? Pretty sure I got all the shards there were, I had 7 by the end. I had fun and penned a review for the game. Thanks for making it.

Random thoughts glitches,improvements in bold

epic opening

moe magical girls!? : D

this...is the 1st time you start a game with godly power....and....keep it...

really interesting bar at the bottom....i assume you will travel back thru time probably getting weaker at the same time

not even gonna be specific seems like ill need to expect alot of grammar errors but for 1 example
Miruka>how do we gat there?


not really a fan of fights you cant in if you put the player in a battle,better to just do it with a cut scene
especially twice :/

in the place where Aqua marine leaves your party,you find a hot spring in the south area
it says yay recovery,but it does not heal you?


encounter rate is too high
cant even restore hit points


you obtain the Hymnos blade for Edelweiss but you already have it(did not lose from the future

its pretty sad how stupid these girls are,they went thru all those battles reached such a high lvl and even die(twice!) and they still don't understand
they need to just shut up and kill him with out hesitation!?
if they fail its over! why don't they understand that!?

decision flaws aside this story gets sadder as it goes on ;(

you keep light armor in the beginning
(should re check everything)

once you return to the final area(green blocks) there's a glitch if you leave thru top right door and come back it re plays the dialog when you 1st enter

the dialog becomes EXTREMELY poorly written killing the lore of the game
i NEEDS to change when they have there memories still...
if they don't have there memories the game becomes utterly pointless as a different conclusion could not happen!


Games unbeatable it just keeps replaying 2 parts...
^after you meet you selves from the past after that seen your sent to the beginning after you re finish that(with no dialog changes what so ever)
you get sent back to the end and shortly after spawning it repeats the meeting you just saw and sends you to the past again...repeats for ever...

random battles were pointless in this game,they are not used to lvl up and you cant restore you hit points



Game needs a fair amount of improvements,a glitch stopped me from continuing the game
mentioned in notes^
so putting overall on hold

changed mind guess i just wont see ending re-tried from a earlier point,just cant beat game there's a lot of glitches

Overall

This game had great Avatar Art and a really interesting time travel idea(which in some aspects was done poorly)
the battles are just there

random battles were a poor design decision as you really should just run away
you have no way to heal and don't need exp/money(which you do earn for some odd reason) they are pointless

the plot i cant say 100% since the end is a important piece of it and again a glitch prevents me from doing so
but the writing needs a fair amount of work

the characters,hard to say much about them
between the game being short and dialog not really giving me much about them
i cant say much here
they are good i guess? :3

puzzles takes just a lil thought(more then pushing 1 rock out of the way)
but you can reset by leaving room as necessary (or reloading which i suggest saving just in case)


Closing
while this has a lot of flaws i am surprised made it to release,i enjoyed the game overall
recommended if you into moe anime girls,time travel(with lack of proper detail),female leads,not grinding and some fairly easy puzzles

Edit
game is beatable theres still some flaws having gear your not supposed to and random battles which serve no purpose other then wasting time
and bad grammar which ruins the story but yeah :3
Hi shayoko, thanks very much for playing!
Actually you CAN beat the game, 100% - you just have to find out how : )
Finding the ending is kinda the secret behind the game, and also explains a lot of the "sore points" you have pointed out, you see? : ) Most of them, aren't glitches really XD ( sorry, if it's too hard to find the ending tho - my writing , can't ay much about that, english is not my native language. )
