aubade /əʊˈbɑːd/
A poem or piece of music appropriate to the dawn or early morning.




Aubade is a short fantasy rpg, the estimated completion time should be around two hours.

With the land in perennial night, a young woman from the Heliacal Knights has been given a straightforward
yet daunting task - to return day to the world. join Ròs, Teàrlach and Pòl as they seek
to return something very dear yet took usually for granted.



clear of its wrong beginnings, and may never:
but at the total emptiness forever,
the sure extinction that we travel to
and shall be lost in always. not to be here,
not to be anywhere,
and soon; nothing more terrible, nothing more true.

December Progress Report - Tintreach

December 2015: Kentona wanted a game to feature.



This is the second of three blogs I plan on writing for the development process of Aubade, I think I'll save characters, all the world lore and stuff for next time so I guess I should just share my thoughts surrounding this project and moving forward. Aubade is the first part of a duology of games I'm planning on making with the follow up being called Serenade, Aubade being the 'morning' part will be a love song to the games that I played as a child; mainly Final Fantasy 9, Golden Sun and Phantasy Star IV, that have influenced how I develop and approach game design with Serenade being the same to games that I played later in life.


To be whipped by the winds of the west


On to development news; it's looking like getting a demo out will take a little bit longer than anticipated which is only due to the fact that I've been working more hours than I thought I would but I'll be able to dedicate a little more time to development after the holiday madness dies down. I've settled on what I want to include in the demo and where I can cut it off without it being to abrupt, which sadly doesn't include my favourite area of the game, and I've made strides on fleshing out the game in areas where it was lacking a little before, mainly battles and how the classes will interact. Speaking of which, one of the bigger changes I've made is switching over to side view with an ATB system pretty much because I think it feels right. I've figured out on how to get VX Ace to use a 16 x 16 iconset so now the icons won't overlap the selectable area and fit in a little better with the line height and spacing.


And spiral through another day




So this happened. Thanks to Kentona for the main page feature, even if I'm still not entirely sure how it happened, and to everybody for their kind words and support so far. It still amazes me the reaction this has had. Until next time.

Also why is the screen so wide? Maybe doubling the window size could actually be good.
I love the atmosphere this has; looking forward to seeing more.
Subbed as well!

Huh, I guess it's still a nice change from 544x416 screen.
It's a really good game. By the way, is that the RTP? I really like what you did with the RTP, plus the mapping is so excellent.

Yeah, it's mostly RTP with a few edits and custom tiles by a handful of artists. Thanks, I hope you find the rest of the game as nice as the mapping.
