Death: "There's more to this place than just demons. Everything here will try to break us physically and mentally."


• Challenging battles are the main focus of the gameplay.
• Play as the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse and confront various demons in the Underworld, including some from Ars Goetia.
• Approximately 2 hours in length.
• Visible Encounters.
• In-game achievements with rewards.
• 4 difficulty modes: Hard, Hard-bitten, Hardcore, and Hardochistic.
• No revive spells or revive items. Reviving can only be done at Restore Shrines, so don't lose your allies in between.
• No towns. The game is a dungeon crawler.
• Similar battle system to my recently released commercial game, Atonement, but with some new mechanics to take into account, like managing your energy regeneration, finding ways to maximise your critical rate, and watching out for execution speed of skills.

Harbingers of Woe is a short-ish project I've undertaken as a break between bigger commercial projects. This game is geared for a very specific audience, mainly one that thrives on the thrill of a challenge.

Complete version 1.0 has been released.

The main download is an RTP-inclusive version. If you'd prefer to download a smaller non-RTP version (for those who have VX Ace RTP already), please download it here.

Finished the game, loved it! Please make a sequel or a new dungeon crawler like this!
Thank you, Lymmet. I am glad you loved the game. Thanks for the suggestion too. I'll try to do another similar game at some point. :)
I've started a Let's Play for this game, but I probably won't be making a proper media submission for a couple more days.
^Thanks for doing the LP. I'm looking forward to checking it out. :)

Well, I'm done with the LP.
Thanks. I've only just noticed it as you've uploaded parts 3 and 4. I must've missed a notification when parts 1 and 2 went up. :)

Thanks for letting me know about that, Fanatik007. I'll try to re-upload the game tomorrow. Might as well add some fixes to it too whilst at it.
Hey again. Decided to do it tonight. The download has been updated. The game is now v1.1. Thanks for notifying me about this.
No problem. Please let me know if any other issues come up. :)
