Beloved Rapture is a game that takes place amidst an epic conflict, though its heart is most deeply concerned with the intimate human relationships of its characters.

Personal and interpersonal stories take center stage. Characters challenge not only the next looming dungeon boss—but themselves, and their own demons.

Existentialism, spirituality, family trauma, LGBT themes, and friendship are all important elements of Beloved Rapture's story, and are treated with the reverence they are due.




Johan, an introverted young man from the countryside, finds himself thrown into a conflict beyond his comprehension. The Aeons—an enigmatic religious faction—move ever-closer to his hometown.

Now faced with a threat to his once-elysian way of life, Johan must contemplate the role he is destined to play in their escalating conflict.

At his side are Aiden, the mysterious son of a Shrine caretaker, who has trained since childhood in the mystic arts; and Crystal, a runaway noblewoman intent on ending the war before it reaches her family.

Through their travels, Johan is intrigued by Aiden's increasing fascination with him, as well as the appearance of Draco, an Aeon soldier with a connection to his own mother.

Prologue / Demo & New Teaser

Hi all-!

I hope you've all been holding up well, and staying healthy during these long days.

One small silver lining to this past month's lockdown in the US: much more free time for development! I'd say we've hit a new stride, in fact.

Prior to Kickstarter, I worked on various cutscenes / dungeons that would span the entire game - in the hopes of showing off some visual diversity for the campaign (plus, testing out new resources).

This past month however, we've hunkered down and focused specifically on the game's prologue section, which spans the first 2 Hours of BR. I believe the Prologue can be a proper demo in its own right - which is my eventual aspiration for it. Ultimately, it'll include numerous exploration maps, battles, a village, a full dungeon, and plenty of whimsical exposition scenes.

Here's a quick montage;




I'd like to have this segment finished by May / Early June at the latest! It'll lay the groundwork for the rest of the game's progression, so it's a good place for our team to start evaluating the pacing, battle fundamentals, writing, visuals, music & other elements.

As everyone knows, the game was rebuilt from scratch with the original assets, so I want to gauge whether it feels at the level of a true indie this time around!

In addition to my team and circle of friends, I'd like to have at least 1-2 folks from RMN help out with the testing. I'll probably make an announcement when it's ready to send!

When it came to RPGMaker, a bad habit I struggled with over the years was designing my content out of order. I'd create a map from the beginning of the game, then start a cut-scene that occurs hours later, etc. XD In that vein, it'll be gratifying to make our recent work more continuous, playable from start-to-finish.

Yeahhh I dunno. I've kind of moved on from the scene for the time being, sad to say. I have a version of the game that's been worked on since I last put something out, but I'm not sure when I'll have enough free time available to finalize it. I'll try to keep you posted. 8[
That's sad to hear. Yeah, heard you moved on from this scene. It just looks really beautiful. Hope it sees the light someday!

Just found this game and instantly fell in love :-p

And am glad to hear that you have restarted the production.

But if you have, can you re-upload the old version?

@Blindmind: Aww, it's pretty sad but I understand; sometimes one have to move on.
But I hope that one day you will see the game to completion.

@benos: Thank you, thank you, THANK YOU.

I can vaguely recall rushing home from high school to open up the editor and brainstorm new concepts...


lol rpgmaker
i have played the demo and its awesome ... althought the intro was not so encouraging at first but man i got to say this a very well made game the graphics and the story going 4.5/5 :D
But i got to ask does this game got along road to go until its released ?
Congratulations,
On your successful KickStarter :).
Hm... the title reminds me the Bioshock series. The character named Aiden reminds me Beyond Two Souls. The graphics is very well. It worths a try if not more.
Wai- Wait... Is it really have the number 8? I-I mean in the url! http://rpgmaker.net/games/8 It's not fair! That's a beautiful number...
Yeah. ;p It was one of the first projects posted on this website. The title was announced even before Bioshock came out, if you can believe it. Thank you for your comment though Zach! ~^-^~
