Final

This isn't crazy, but it is like as if Terry Davis (RIP) made this game. It's somewhat incoherent and nonsensical - it's absurd in a very real way. And in this case, 'very real way' means the kind of absurdity where laughter doesn't suit it. It's not as crazy as anything you'd find with Davis, but I was crazy.

This isn't an augmented reality game, but it is like an autobiographical game. The truth is in there - it's obfuscated. A life leaves a trail and there are stories that are organic. There's a lot of truth in this game. And I wanted to reveal that grim truth that's somewhere in there.

I think the game is evil. It might even be dangerous. I think some ideas are venomous and willing to kill. I had to abandon this game because it was taking my mind away. I found myself fractured and began work on this game. And as fractured into many, I worked on this game. And then I stopped. I'm not in such a bad place now. Well, I wonder, maybe this game is a secret ritual that would have destroyed me.

But I'd like you to play it. It is a gift to you. It's a gift because it comes from very near to the center of my heart. My own horrors are shielded from you and yet I present what was left over. What wasn't destroyed formed into this. If you look into this game, I hope you have fun... and thank you.

How could you do this to me :(

I'm frozen !!! :(

Across from the house for sale, there are many, many shops.
In the shop you can filch a few eclipse....after several filches, the guard at the door walks up to you, I assume to tell you enough is enough.
But since I have two others trailing in my party he can't reach me.
I'm standing in front of the filching chest, listening to I think some Cuban music and CAN'T MOVE :(
Guess I will hit F12.
Just wanted to let you know about a freezespot :)

EDIT : I know your still working on the game so thought I would let you know
the "bomb" and "fire bomb" have NO effect on any monsters.
How are we supposed to beat the slimes and rats when they laugh at
our fire bombs :(

Thank you for telling me!
I've gone ahead and fixed those problems.
I've also gone ahead and changed the battle music.
However, mediafire is down. I can't upload the fix until it's up.

Edit: It has now been reloaded for your pleasure!

Did you get the teleportation item in the first house you appear in?
It should be in your key items and it will take you back to Synovia.
Each city has it's own teleportation item that can be used to return back to that city. If you get stuck, you can always use one of those items to return to a safe area.

Do you think the difficulty ramps up too fast? It's hard for me to tell when it is too difficult because I know the ins and outs of the game.

NOW YOU TELL ME ?? :)
Actually I might have had that device...too late now :(

I but for the teleportation device, if you get trapped and have to fight
4 rats each and there are 4 rats waiting to attack....yes, I might agree :) that is
a bit much. But don't forget, I'm an old person and my skills are not the greatest.

I'm a button mashing at heart :)

More like young at heart, haha.
It's not the average old folk that plays free indie games.

I'll try to level out the difficulty a bit with my end of April update.
It's April. Now it's May. Soon it will be June. Two months late.
When is the promised update?
Give the genius more time idiot. He might need to rest.
I'm really sorry about the delays, but I think everyone in this forum has either school or work to deal with that often pushes our personal projects aside forcibly...
I picked up an additional and compressed summer semester, which has me very busy for just a few more weeks. Plans can just change rapidly...
I don't think I'm a genius though, lol...
Won't start.. I click on new game and it freeses up just gets a black screen.
I have to reboot my system so as to get out of the game.

So, the game started, but you couldn't start a new game because it froze. No error came up?
I'm sorry that happened, but I can't replicate it.
Do you have the RTP installed?
What operating system are you using?
Yes RTP installed. Win XP-SP3 NO error

Hmm... weird... I'm guessing other VXAce games work for you...
I don't know what's up.
I NOMINATE YOU!
TRIPPY WEIRD! GO YOU!
Please check out the cheat code page. These will help show some of what's hidden.
Cheats can be accessed from the key items menu
It appears that this game is NOT finished (most likely development has stopped.) There are several parts of the game that specifically mention that the game is not finished. The game has several areas that are completely empty, many sample maps, and some areas werent tiled properly. The battle system is also pretty weird. You have extremely weak heal spells that cost no MP, and I had a party member who had like 6 HP meaning they will get oneshotted by any random enemy in one go. I'm also not sure how to get more party members than 4 as by then people start to decline joining your party. Some features appear to be unfinished and/or not implemented. And finally, when I decided to 'wake up', the cutscene that occurs afterwards was apparently set to autorun without being turned off, so that cutscene played over and over, preventing the game from advancing.

On the plus side, I like it that a random teapot gave my party a bunch of EXP.
