A woman stands alone. A promise is forgotten. But today, that will change…



A mischievous mercenary from wintry Garenia and her long-suffering sister set aside their differences to compete in a tournament of arms. But when an old friend appears in the company of mysterious relic hunters, the past can no longer be denied. Sacred Earth: Promise is a four- to six-hour visual novel/RPG experience set within a fantasy world of floating continents and ancient ruins, with a dynamic custom battle system and a compelling cast of characters.

Features


- Three playable characters with their own animated sprites and special attacks.

- Tactical, fast-paced combat: Utilize multiple-hit Chain attacks to build up your EX Gauge and expend it to unleash powerful Burst attacks or heal with EX Recover.

- Two ways to explore: Transition between traditional tile maps and the original boardgame-style Symbol Map system for dungeon navigation. Manage your Travel Points to evade traps and gain the initiative in battles, and enjoy party interactions in the field.

- 10 side quests, including clever puzzles and challenging optional battles.

- 21 full-color CGs. View them all in detail after clearing the game.

- An engaging presentation with moving portraits that displays conversations between up to four characters at once, with anytime-save and backlog features.

- Fully explore the game's world and quests and unlock the true ending.

- Try to solve the mystery hinted at after the credits to learn a main character’s most important secret!

Release!



Well. It's been four years since SEP first was made as part of the IGMC. But it's been even longer than that for the SE series as a whole. Since the days of GW and beyond. Back when I was first making trash like Mystic Legends and Axis Saga.

But not Angelic Awakening. I loved Angelic Awakening.

After all of that, SE has finally gotten a commercial release. I still feel like the game is rough, despite all the time I've spent polishing it. But all the same, the game has been released.

You can find it on Steam and Itch.io here:

A big thank you goes out to the RM community for all the help I've gotten over the past, what, decade almost? People have come and gone, but I've taken the lessons I've learned to heart, and I'd like to think that this release is a culmination of all of that.

So once again, thank you.

The game is marked as completed, that's why fharden's confused...

In any case, fharden, the download will take a while to be uploaded, so be patient :)

I really like how this looks :)

Oooh, a VX Ace port?


Not exactly. It's a port of a lot of the SEM mechanics, but SEM is still on 2k3 for now. This is a one shot with it's own plot.

Yeah, I remember first seeing this put up here last night and was like, “What? She’s doin’ another one!? HEAVENS TO MURGATROYD!” But then I quickly read the description and was like, “Oh. It’s just for the contest. Neat.”

So is this going to be a prequel or just a side story to the original Sacred Earth Memory? And is this going to be just a short game made in time for the contest or are you eventually going to turn it into a much larger, more thought out adventure just like SEM?

Anyways, surprisingly porting these graphics over from 2k3 to Ace doesn't look actually too bad. I look forward to see what comes of this since I’ve been, I dunno, kinda following this series for the last couple of years, ever since the GamingW.net days.

Also, good luck in the contest, too. I hope you can get this out in time, Skie. ^^

Nah, this is a complete one shot. It's not going to become anything bigger. And it's not a part of the SEM continuity, so characters, while sharing personalities, backstories, and such with SEM, are being written into a short, self contained plot for the purposes of this game only.

So in other words, this is simply just a cash grab, and the events of this entire story is non-cannon.

I bet the ending has something to do with Priel waking up from a dream with Gunnar looking over her saying, “Hey, you can’t have your own game, Priel! I’m the star; fans love me. Get out and get back on the bench like the second grade character that you are.”

Yeah, I was going to say, without Gunnar around, this entry is just pure female eye-candy, lol.

Is it later yet? :P


'Later' has probably become 'use all the time we have to add additional polish'. If we have the time, may as well use it. |D

Sorry for the inconvenience, but better to put out a polished product than a subpar one!
Oh, I remember this game (or rather, SEM itself). Although I think it was SEB back then? Anyways, I'll be looking forward to this one for sure. Just going to sit here and hope for a Gunnar cameo.
Downloaded game but when I start to fight after the first encounter the game comes up with an error message and game stops - can you help please
That error has been addressed. Please redownload the file. :)
I'm now middle of confusion about the definition of Genre. LoL

But good to see your game in here.
I just downloaded the game and something wrong is happening, just when the second
battle of the game is about to start, the music fades and the game shuts down.
What is happening?

Is this happening from the dropbox link? No one has reported anything like this since it's upload and I've gotten numerous confirmations of people finishing the game. I've tried a few times myself just to see and I can't reproduce this.

Have you tried again? You wouldn't happen to be running a mac would you? Are there any error messages? I can't think of any reason why it would happen.
The download is from the dropbox link, I tried three times, I'm using Windows, and no, there are no error messages.

EDIT: Forget it, now it works fine. It seems it was just a temporal bug...
