Howdy ya'll,

So I just got the notes from my last beta tester, meaning all I've got left is to implement his changes and do some final clean up. So I'll be releasing this bad boy in one week on Sunday, May 15. I've gone ahead and removed the old downloads in preparation. Anyway, here's what some of the beta testers have had to say about the next release (I hope they don't mind me posting this).



"In my last review I gave it 4.5 stars out of 5. I'd probably still give it the same amount, but for a lot more reasons. Imagine it as a 9/10 because there's double the game and double to judge. Know what I mean? Basically, you've remained on the consistent "A" value that you started out as. And yes, I would definitely recommend it to others. I think you have a classic in the making, my friend." - Linkforce


"This game has the makings of a masterpiece. It takes an old school style of play and expands on it greatly. It's really hard to put what I wanna say in words. I loved everything about the game. It has all the things I love about RPGs; great story, unique and believable characters, excellent battle system, good puzzles (not too easy or too hard), an overworld, etc.

Right now, I'm really itching to play some more, because of how easily this game draws you into it's tale. It's like an amalgamation of every great RPG I've ever played rolled into one. This is coming from a guy who is 27 years old and cut his RPG teeth on Dragon Warrior, FF 1, and Wizardry. I went on to play so many classics such as FFIV, FFVI, Chrono Trigger, Rudra no Hihou, and Xenogears just to name a few. At this rate, Forever's End will be SUPERIOR to many of those classics and practically all of the RPGs in this console generation."

"I’d give it four and a half stars now. I didn’t want to talk about my impressions of the game in my notes, but the game is a lot of fun and you get so sucked into the compelling story. I think it’s my favourite game on the site, and I have played Heroes Realm. I don’t think I’ve played a game worthy of five stars, it’s almost like saying the game is perfect....you can really see how you improved with time, you’re a much better developer than you were at the start, and like you, the game gets better the further you get. There’s a massive and impressively varied cast and I liked almost everyone. Lots of interesting features and excellent NPCs at every turn. I struggle to say bad things about the game, which is so unusual, and the amount of work and care you’ve put into the game just shines so brightly, you just can’t help but notice and say “Wow, that‘s neat”. I know that my Villnoire would never have been this good, so I’m very glad to see my maps used in a such a fantastic game.

tldr: I love it, I really love it."

"Without the bugs, I'd defs give it 5 stars; i really, really enjoyed it!

-Believable/whacky characters that have good relationships with each other
-Amazing mapping.
-Nice animation for each of the characters.
-Relevant music that works really well in each situation
-Emotional/moving cutscenes
-Fun battles (which is hard to do in an RPG!)
-Interesting NPC's.
-(and then i just said etc. cos i thought i was getting a bit mushy hahaha)"

I can't wait to show you all what I've been working on. I hope you guys will check it out on Sunday!

good job pulling through to the end old boy
Dude, that verbal blowjob I gave you was just between us!

I don't mind that you posted it really!
It's going to be about 50% of the full game. However, after reading SorceressKrysty's article, I'm hesitating calling this a "demo" because it isn't exactly a short "demonstration." In fact, it's longer than many finished RPG Maker games out there (the average gameplay time is clocked in around 15-18 hours). But I can't say this is "Chapters 1-7" or something because I'm not really dividing the game into chapters either.

So I guess you could think of this as just another stage or a big chunk of the full game; saves from this release will be compatible with all future releases. Also, I think people will be more likely to play it if they don't get the impression that this is a quick technical demonstration.

call it 'episode 1'
Just so you all know, this is still coming out tomorrow. I'm not going to pull a 180 on you guys like I did last time.

How much percent was the last demo? Is this much more or only a bit more? I'll play it even if it is only a bit more than the last demo because I like it. ;-)

The last version was probably about 25%, so at least twice as long. And sorry, for the wait guys, I promise it will be up here soon (just doing some last minute clean up).
Clean up is always nice. Can't wait to see the game!
