“THERE IS NO NIGHTMARE IN DAYBREAK. THE CITY IS ABSOLUTELY FINE. PLEASE FORGET THAT IT EVER EXISTED.”

Weird and unfortunate things are happening in the city of Daybreak. To the rest of the world, the city seems to have simply vanished, but inside, it has become a playground for mysterious beings who see humans only as hosts for their own amusement.



Alicia’s a bit strange. She still likes to wear her old baseball jersey, even though her team disbanded over a year ago. She can see otherworldly creatures that no one else seems to notice. She also has weird powers that she keeps hidden from the rest of the world. But when she receives a call for help from her niece in Daybreak, she’ll do anything to save her.

Caught up in the struggle along with Alicia are Miriam, a secretary and gun aficionado who only wants to escape the city, Lamar, an overworked middle school English teacher, and Dottie, Alicia’s niece, who has been captured for some nefarious purpose.

Explore what’s left of the ravaged city and find your way through surreal otherworldly areas that connect the broken urban shell. Encounter any other citizens who have survived and make contact with the strange entities that now inhabit this realm. Survive. Or be swallowed up by the city and forgotten forever.

Sewer Saga and a Rambling Dev

The sewer is a short area to give the player a cooldown after the huge school dungeon and the vedim area within it. Just relax as you navigate the smelly surroundings. Regain your chill after all that crazy mess that happened beforehand.


Can you find all the graffiti RPG Maker game references?


Between the 60% release and now, all I've worked on concerning the rest of the game is the sewer itself and the downtown tileset. Honestly, an equal amount of time has been spent fixing bugs and correcting stuff with the already finished 60% of the game (thanks again for all of the feedback :DDD). There's also a secret password menu (only in the latest version of 60% release) for people who want to replay the game with all the expense-speak translated, though it's not exactly useful until the full game is out. press Q as the game starts before any dialog appears. but what's the password? beat the game when its released to find out

So, what's left to do in the game? Let's revive that game progress meter I made waaaaaay back when, redrawn for kicks.



So is that a lot or not much? Hard to say. I'm just taking it one step at a time, and we'll arrive at the end sooner or later.

Honestly, after the 60% Release, I thought I'd give myself a break and do something fun, like a short yuri game or something. But I dunno, I failed in that because all my ideas needed longer games to work, and the one idea I thought of that's short doesn't really sing to me, so I'll just keep plugging away at this game for now. Not to say that I might not need a short game distraction to give me a break from all the weirdness of this project later down the line, but I'll try to stay focused.

Thanks for reading my rambling and following the game's development :DDDD

I maybe-recall you talking about this game, and wondering about the title, when kentona jumped in, and was like, Weird and Unfortunate Things Are Happening.
Congrats on getting the page up!! It's nice to see things together in screenshots. :)

I'm having a lot of fun working on this; I hope people enjoy my contribution~ (can't wait to play it)
You know, the more I see it the more I can't help but to mention it - but it really looks like Miriam is either eyeing Alicia's breasts or very much judging her jersey.

Am I catching a hint of possible romance here~?

Oh yes, that definitely happened. I couldn't decide on a title, but in the paragraph where I described the game, I started off with the words "Weird and unfortunate things are happening," and kentona suggested I used that as the title, and it was just so strange and off the wall that I decided to run with it XD

I am so glad you're enjoying working on this, and thank you so much for working with me ;u; I absolutely adore how you've brought the characters to life with your art!

Haha, Sooz pointed that out to me, too! When I placed the characters next to each other for that pic, I just wanted for her to be giving Alicia a weird look, but now it totally looks like she's checking her out XD

And the big question is, can I make a game without romance? XDXD For those who don't like that sort of thing, don't worry, romance won't be a major part of the game, but that doesn't necessarily mean there won't be any tension that could be construed as romantic >.> XD
Awesome to see my Luna Engine work in action! Can't wait to play it ;)

By the way, I put a tiny Easter Egg into Escalia, in one side quest the main character had to search for someone's dolly.. named Dottie ;)

Thanks so much, both of you :DDDDD
This seems very interesting. The setting reminds me of one of my game ideas where the game was set in a DMC-like universe with terrifying demons and whatnot. The second game would take place in a big post-apocalyptic city, after the "outbreak" from the first game.

Best of luck with this!
