STORY

Melrose Kronholm is having her twelfth birthday. Exactly one year ago, this is the day when her stepmother and half-brother perished in a house fire, while Melrose barely escaped. With her new life, Melrose has tried forgetting about the physical and mental scars of her past. All of that changes when Melrose makes a detrimental discovery--her stepmother's journal, titled "The Doctrine of Perseverance." This leads her into the mysterious world of the Nox where she has to unravel the secrets of the cursed mansion that burnt to the ground.

Features:
-Three playable protagonists. (They switch in between chapters, with Melrose having the most play time.)
-Multiple Endings
-Original Art/Cutscene Graphics
-Voices
-3-5 hours of gameplay.

CHARACTERS

Melrose Kronholm

A young yet maturing girl. Melrose has had to grow up quick in her adolescent life. Often quiet at her previous residence but now more than lively with her new family. Her new life with her godfather has given her a new-found confidence.


Suzetta Fernelius

Melrose's best friend and godfather's adopted daughter. She's more mature than the average person her age and acts like the oldest child between her, Melrose, and Silas.


Silas Fernelius

Dace's oldest adopted child. Silas finds peace in solitude but still is a popular kid at his school amongst his own group of friends. However, he enjoys his time with his family and is quite fond of teasing his relatives.

Melrose's Updated Portraits + Extra

Heyo! It's been a while since I've last posted on rmn for TDOP, but here I have some of the updated portraits for Melrose.



Melrose’s old and updated portraits. Never stop drawing, kiddos.

Here's also a map I redid!



I'm gonna eventually change the text, but I still think it's quite an improvement in game.

I also casted all of the characters needed in voice acting call on tumblr. I'm very happy with all of the VAs. TDOP is changing so much, it's very exciting!

Well, that's all I have for now. Thank you for reading!

This looks like it's going to be really fun. ^^
Oh it's okay.
I'm a fairly certain that it is something with Windows 8 and this laptop that is screwing it up so to speak.
I'll try to look into it more, I don't think there is something wrong with it on your side frankly o,o'

I actually tried looking it up (game.exe not running) and got a variety of results, but not many were similar to your situation. :/

Good luck though! :)

Not at all! Let's Plays are 100% allowed (even monetized videos), however, I do ask that you put a link back to the game or at least the tumblr homepage. :)


I'll place a link to here and your tumblr page within the description of the video(s). ^_^

Other games of this genre don't allow monetising, so I just do it as a rule not to monetise. (I only do YouTube as a hobby, 0% financial profit). :)

Alright! That's totally fine. Just make sure you link the game homepage which is here. I'll make sure to watch your video as well! (I'm always interested in what people have to say.)

Gave this a short try. Mostly to see if I could produce the same error/crash that TheCrimsonValley is experiencing. Unfortunately, I could not. Getting past the first room...


...at this point, I'm almost positive that the "We see" sign and the clues in that room relate to getting out of there (ie: check the roses, then check the presents, then the door, then the presents twice, then... the "We see" sign?). So far, no success. I was able to find the Pocket Knife (which plays an error sound when trying to select it), and the Glue (which seems to be usable, but I don't see/notice anything happening).


*Edit: Another thing I'm noticing is that Shift is used as both a fast-forward button for text display and character movement. I largely suspect the use of Yanfly's messaging system for the former. In which case, I would suggest a different button to fast-forward text messages. I use Control, but, if you want a different button (such as one that's on the virtual gamepad), I could probably find the reference for you.

Here's how you solve that:
If you check the other items around the room you will notice that there are directions. The clock is on the north wall. "WE SEE" isn't only a message, but directions too. ;)

I didn't even know that was even a thing! I'll change it to control (making it run like a visual novel).

I noted the "N" on the clock, the "W" on the roses (or was it the letter next to the roses?), the "E" on the presents, and the "S" on the door. That's why I figured the combination to get out probably involved checking the roses ("W"), the presents ("E"), the door ("S"), then the presents twice ("E", "E").

Then, you'd replace...

TEXT_SKIP = :A     # Input::A is the shift button on keyboard.

with...

TEXT_SKIP = Input::CTRL

...though, I've been known to retain original programming, so, mine looks more like...

#TEXT_SKIP = :A     # Input::A is the shift button on keyboard.
TEXT_SKIP = Input::CTRL

...that. That's just my insanity, though.

Oh, okay! In order to complete the puzzle you need to take the directions from we see starting from the writing on the wall.


Also thanks for telling me how to change the text scroll! I probably would've just put CTRL in and would've been confused as to why it wasn't working. C:
I'm glad to find your game around here, good work, and beautiful art.
The best of luck.

Thank you so much! ^_^
Cole back here aka TheCrimsonValley!
First things first: I can now play the demo! My suspicion is that windows updated, screwing up my comp and now that it has updated again it has straighten it out.
Second things second: I now have a question. After the dinner when Suzette speaks to herself and then leaves the room my screen goes black and... nothing. I wait for a really long time but nothing happens and the game has not frozen in and on itself so I'm just wondering, is something supposed to happen? or is that just the end of the demo and I just have to close it down without being returned to the menu?

Yes, unfortunately that is a known bug that I addressed in this blog.

You'll just have to reload the game either from your save or from the beginning (if you didn't save). Sorry about that :(

Unfortunately this is a bug I learned about awhile ago and fixed in the file, however, have not uploaded the fixed version. I plan to do a 100% mastered demo version which will be released in a couple of days. Sorry about that! :/
