Current Version: Demo v0.5.2.1

Synopsis
In a world of humans, monsters, and magic users called Magi, a power-hungry Empress aims to commit genocide on anything and anybody she deems unworthy. Her current focus: Magi. Her sinister plans do not go unchallenged...for a resistance group springs into action in hopes that they can beat that evil woman and her empire to hell where they belong!


Gameplay
Eternal Twilight is an old-school styled fantasy RPG with a Turn-Based battle system. I have made much use of the plethora of amazing scripts that Yanfly has created for the MV system to bring a battle system that is familiar, yet original in its own right. I am a firm believer of quality over quantity when it comes to designing a battle system and the types of skills a player has at their disposal. The battle system in Eternal Twilight features the following:

  • Unique weapon/armor system, where enemy drops will "randomly select" a rarity for the item dropped, granting bonus stats to that item! Legendary Bronze Sword anyone? YES PLEASE!
  • Intelligent enemy AI that will keep the player on their toes. The AI will respond according to the player's actions to make sure "LOL-SPAM ATTACK" will lead to the players demise.
  • Resource management will be key to success. There are ZERO MP regenerating items, so it is up to the player to make sure they are using the party abilities intelligently.
  • Skills come in all shapes and sizes, ranging from Instant cast spells that don't consume the character's turns, to very powerful attacks, buffs, and heals that have cooldowns, making sure the player strategically chooses when to use certain abilities.
  • This and much more!


This game is currently in development.

Eternal Twilight Demo v0.5.2.1 Uploaded!

UPDATED DEMO TO v0.5.2.1 - Gameplay, Battle, and Character Changes Galore!
Demo Length - Demo now ends at the very end of the OASIS DESERT!

Save Files - Due to some pretty hefty changes to the database and plugins used, old save files could cause some issues, so if you wanted to update to v0.5.2, you'll need to start the game over!

Gameplay changes and additions
  • The previous demo ended after the Minerva boss fight, but has now been extended to play up to the end of the Oasis Desert again.
  • There are two new NPC's that appear in the Runecrafting Shrine that will help the party out...you'll have to play for yourself to see who they are and what they do!
  • When playing on Hard Mode, bosses will now drop additional loot upon defeat!
  • AP gain upon level up has been increased by +25 per level.
  • Upon learning/upgrading a total of 60 skills across the whole party, the player will be able to purchase the "Unleash Potential" passive skill for each party member. This passive skill can be upgraded an unlimited amount of times,
    and increases all damage/healing by 1% per upgrade, but with an increasing cost for each upgrade.
  • MaxTP now slightly increases upon level up.


Game Balance Changes
Vygor
  • The damage increase on HP lost has been slightly reduced, making Vygor deal about 10-15% less damage overall.
  • Megaton Punch can no longer be a critical hit.

Minerva Boss
  • Damage has been reduced by about 10% at the top end of her abilities. This should give players about 1-2 more turns of wiggle room before she starts one-shotting the party.

Runic Heart
  • Runic Heart is no longer "immune" to damage outside of "Overload" phases, but will still take about 50% reduced damage when not "Overloaded".



Character Changes
All Characters
  • When a character is revived, that character will automatically "GUARD" until the end of the turn. This should help resolve the issue of a party member being revived and then immediately killed.
  • TP gained from taking damage has been slightly increased!
  • Damage over time abilities have been reduced in damage by about 15% across the board.


Luna
  • N/A


Damien
  • All of Damien's skills have longer cooldown timers by default.
  • Smite now reduces the cooldown of all of Damine's skills by 1.
  • Heal now refreshes the duration of Radiance on the target it heals.
  • Great Heal has been removed and replaced with "Sphere of Power" which costs MP, but will boost the TP of the whole party by 20+.
  • Blessing no longer has a 1-turn cooldown and can be toggled on/off within the same turn.
  • Holy Pulse: Damien's "default" attack has been changed. This ability will no longer deal damage to enemies, but instead, will do a very small amount of healing to the whole party. This is served to be used as a filler heal.


Trish
  • N/A


Ryudo
  • Passive Update: The more TP Ryudo has stored up, the higher his Defense will become.
  • Body Slam: TP cost has been increased by 5 TP.


Minerva
  • N/A


Bug Fixes
  • Equipment Secondary bonus: "Of Regeneration" was causing a weird bug where it would bring KO'd characters back from the dead. This has been fixed!
  • When the enemy and player party had a large amount of damage/heal over times ticking at the end of the turn, it would case some immense lag on some computers. To counter this, I've removed a large amount of the animations that play when these effects trigger at the end of the turn.


Thank you for your continued interest in Eternal Twilight, and I hope you enjoy all these new changes! :D

As with all new demo uploads, please don't hesitate to report any bugs you may find! Thank you!

Sounds like a mixture of FF VII and Demon Hunter. I'll give it a try once its out.

Nice. I saw one grammar misstake: In the intro you missed a s at highness.
Waiting for more.
@Firefly84 - Perhaps I'm just blind, but I combed through the dialogue in the intro and couldn't find the typo you mentioned.

This post has been hidden by the game developer. Click here to show the post anyway.
While I can see where you might have some issues here and there, some of them are quite unwarranted. For instance, the enemies leveling portion.

When an enemy levels up with you, they gain a fraction of the stats the the player does, almost to the point where it doesn't make much of a difference, in fact, the reason enemies level up is to give the player MORE exp and gold. The enemies also have a level cap, so that they don't indefinitely level up as the player does. The enemies in the 1st dungeon max at level 5 I believe, and in the 2nd dungeon, they will max out at level 10, and so on and so forth.

Example: The bee in the 1st forest dungeon, upon level will gain 5hp (again, hardly anything), 1 Attack, and 1 Agility. But, at the same time, they will also gain +3 EXP and +3 Gold upon defeat. I didn't implement the enemy leveling up system to "punish" the players, it's a way to reward them more for their time spent in battle.

The gemming system is made that way on purpose (ever play World of Warcraft?), hence why they drop so frequently, AND you can buy them as well. You're the 1st feedback I've read that disliked that feature, but you can't please everyone, so I just have to understand that as a developer.

As for the losing money on running thing, my game is not the first to do that, and considering on-map encounters is a thing, it's pretty fair. Even if you do run, the amount of gold you lose isn't huge (at least it shouldn't be...I might have to look at the numbers). Escaping from a battle should, at least according to my math/setup take away about 15% of your total gold. Some players dislike it, but it's a balance thing...risk vs. reward.

Thanks for the feedback regardless, there are a few things I can look into based off of it.

Well, it's about time I get to play another Ferny game :)

Subscribed, downloaded and so far, another good game.
Damn, I wish some players would just play and judge the type of games they enjoy most.

Get to work Ferny, 4/16 is just around the corner :)
@Linkis: Hahah, glad to see you still ticking! I'll make sure to get it done quickly, just for you! :D
A bug has been found where sometimes you will receive a "Nan" message when gaining AP after battle, and it will reset that character's total AP back to zero. I believe the issue has been fixed, and the demo has been uploaded reflecting it. Sorry for the inconvenience! D:

Sorry Fernyfer, this bug is still there. Or the download is not updated yet.
It seems to happen when Luna is poisoned and Trish is bleeding.
It just happened to all after using Radiance, even when it is over.
It never happens when a buff is given with Guard, Smite or Tantra Magic.

And when the earlier event with explaining some game mechanics where (I think it was about the runes) only a black box appears and you can't do nothing except wait. Then you have full control of your characters.

When initiating the rune shrine, it goes to "now Loading" but nothing happens.
Another Bug:
When using Raining Arrows, this happened:


I would test the other skills and status and (de)buffs, but for now I haven't enough skill points.
I think I know what the issue is...whenever I deploy the project, it seems to be removing some vital parts, causing all these crashes because I've meticulously test-played all of this stuff countless times and it always works on my end. - This issue has been fixed.

As for the AP bug, it was actually another plug-in that was screwing it up. I have removed the plug-in and replaced it with one that is compatible. I'm going to try to fix the deployment problem, and then I will re-upload a fixed demo. -This issue has been fixed.

The most current fixes and adjustments have been uploaded.
Thanks for getting rid of these bugs.
But there are some gliches you have to solve:
In the item-menu there are some slots without anything and you can choose them in battle too for loosing a round.
There's a non-name-slot in the buy-menu in the pub for the cost of 0G.
When this doesn't help, I'll make some screenshots.

I will try to find a spirit... and I think I found one but it's bugged.
Were the "empty" items only acquirable through the store, or did you notice you had some prior to that? I fixed the store, I had moved some items around in the database and forgot to update the inventory.

I fixed the problem that crashed Tajin Forest...I manually stripped files from my game to knock down the download size, and totally missed that one.
  • PS - That was one of those rare "spirit" monsters too, booo!


Is the most recent demo you downloaded the one with enemy side-view battlers or no?
Also, did you try going into the Runecrafting Shrine? I had a few people mention that it was freezing up on them, I wanted to know if I fixed the problem.

I noticed the empty spots before I tried to buy something. I think they appeared after buying the equipment. When using the empty spots in battle nothings happend else loosing a round for nothing.
I thought it was because I met a spirit - it was the first time so the bug was new.
I didn't start a new game but copied the complete save file. So I don't know of the black issue after fleeing from the first battle scene happened again.
The runecrafting shrine is now working as it should, I even got one Tier 2 after the gargoyles.
The battles were the same as in the first version. The only difference was that the first gargoyle disappered after defeating and of course the "weather".
Ah, okay. Perhaps transferring the save file is what did it. Good to know! :D
I'm glad the Runecrafting shrine is working now.

If you mean the empty spots then no. I have seen this empty spots in your second version, too, and that game I had to restart, because the copied saves didn't work.
Perhaps I should have mentioned it before.
Hey Fernyfer775,
when will you update your download? I really want to fight a spirit.
To the battles:
Sideview, with a zooming out at the beginning, but no more zoooming in (and out) during battle. Each action shows the actor and its aim(s). This battle system is fine for me. Even the "weather" is fitting.
I am going to finish the Port Town Muyan area and then the next dungeon + boss before uploading the next demo. I want to make sure I give people enough new stuff to warrant re-downloading the game! :)
It should be ready by the end of the week, school is getting crazy busy this week, so I've had to cut back my RPG MAKER time.
So I downloaded this and I'm extremely impressed. I love the scenario thus far, the animations are crisp and unique. I haven't done much socketing yet, but I defeated the first boss and I'm absolutely loving this game.

@squallstorm: I'm glad you're enjoying it so far. I really am trying hard to deliver a satisfying experience to my players. Keep an eye out for the updated demo that I hope to release around the end of the week that will include more content to play around with! ^_^
