EVILGOD, an all-powerful deity of evil, has erected a massive citadel and placed all of the adults of the world inside of it. Now it's up to the kiddos of the world to stand up and take their rightful place as the destined heroes!

>SUPER
Won't somebody think of the children!? They're going to have too much fun facing mortal terror as the hellish demons under EVILGOD's control wreck havoc on the world. And of course, that entire world is open to enjoy (and/or die in)!

>BATTLE
Draw your swords and ready your spells, because EVILGOD's minions are plentiful and deadly! Battles in SBKE10k! are kill-or-be-killed affairs, requiring you to survive chains of battles in a row. You'll be justly rewarded, naturally. There are no random encounters here! You get to choose the who/where/what/how of fighting due to the Hexagram Encounter Chain Summoning System (HECSS). And even better, every turn you can change your party on the fly. Eris got KO'd by a mean boss? Rotate in Carmilla to continue the magical barrage!

>KIDDO
With nine playable characters and six additional companions, there are a lot of kiddos to meet and interact with! Leon the dependable paladin and Myra the easily-distractable runemaster are the destined heroes, but they can't slay EVILGOD alone -- especially because with all the adults gone, kiddos have to run the towns! From Aspen the overworked alchemist to Bennet the callous-but-helpful magic gear salesman, you can interact with your entire entourage whenever you stop to rest.

>EXPERIENCE
Over twenty dungeons to gain experience in means there's always a new sight to see! Hunt down a pesky fairy at Faesparkle Spring, uncover the illusion hiding an entire town by delving into the Picksen Mines, or put on a warm coat to ascend the towering Arctic Finger. Find and equip a variety of unique loot, each piece with its own backstory. While you can always get a reminder on what your main goal is, there are many smaller adventures to seek out and, well, experience!

Barely ~ Well Something Sure is Released



I summoned up a final burst of will to open the project after many weeks of letting it rot. I spent some time weaking stats one last time so that it wasn't so ridiculously hard, making sure the teleport items worked, and fixing a bug that I didn't even know was present until today (it's embarassing, I'm not telling).

So, enjoy a few hours of slaying baddies as the wacky kiddos! But let this be known as the day that Craze swore off making """traditional""" rpgs. I don't know how to balance them or pace them, and have a hard time seeing the point when I could make weird experimental stuff like EMDE!2 or Wine & Roses or Czarina Must Die! Not that SBKE isn't an experiment, because the chain system most definitely was a (failed) one.

I'm gonna go kill things in Eorzea for a bit (and by that I mean level Botanist from 47 to 50 while listening to darkcore synthpop because that's how I do). But...

DO LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU LIKE/DON'T LIKE. Just because I've given up on this iteration of the project doesn't mean I won't be using these characters again or that this whole experience (HEH) wasn't one full of learning. There's a lot about this project that I really like and that I'd love to hear your reactions to.

And happy Release Something Day XIII. =)

Uploading the first demo now for testers! Feel free to PM me a desperate plea if you want to be a tester. (Being a tester means you get to play the game and tell me how you feel about it. It's not very hard.) My save file time is five hours, but the demo is probably a little shorter than that since I went around doing everything at every possible time to make sure all the intended sequence breaking worked. (Why do I make non-linear games. I am foolish.)
This looks so much cooler than anything I could make.
This is probably the coolest game I've seen here that has a good chance to be finished.

These kiddies are TOO ADORABLE!

Really digging the font choice too.
Ack, perfect gender equality until I saw the supporting cast. SO CLOSE. This is still adorable and sounds awesome. I look forward to this with great interest.

Fun fact: this isn't dead, I've just been working on the game jam. Work on Kiddos will resume next week. =)

I made a few quality-of-life changes before the game jam. Sometimes different-level enemies appear of the same type, so I had them use slightly different hues so that you can differentiate. Equipment that affects maximum HP will now adjust your current HP along the same percentage -- if Leon had 40/100 HP, and equipped a +10 HP item, he would then be at 44/110 HP. Aspen now sells very cheap Alchemical Wings that warp you back to the last inn you stayed at. Physical attacks now show their cooldown not only in their description, but where mana cost would be for spells. (Before only the post-use cooldown would show; now it also shows what the cooldown would be if you used it.)

Lots of little things, but hopefully nice ones. =)
looks intriguing :) when the demo will be up?
