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. =)

I need to play this as soon as possible, since I don't need another game to add to my backlog.

AFAIK this was supposed to be EMDE!2's spiritual successor anyway but it got blown way out of proportion? (lol)

Also, is this a demo? Is it ready to be reviewed? Or just feedback in the form of comments?

Cheers!

"got blown way out of proportion" you can say that again. this is like, whatever the opposite of hyperbole is. it's almost 10 and the weekend for me, my brain is dead

this is a "demo" but it's the final release of "This Version." i am already fiddling with ideas to use these characters and this battle system in a different setting for a much smaller game. feel free to review or just comment, I honestly don't mind either. i'll probably be making a new game profile for the Next Version so that I can save this profile for posterity.

Sounds so cool.
Do you kill things while wearing a black hoodie? Cuz that's my imago.
