Trailer




playtime of the demo: 6-8 hours (~20% of the full game)



Changelog:

DEEP 8 is now running on easyrpg! Officially supported platformen are windows, mac, linux, browser und android.

All facesets have been replaced (again).

All former artworks have been replaced with renders (from blender) and of course many new ones have been added.

Several graphical improvements. Especially I added a lot of particle effects..

Lots of dialog adjustmens and additional dialog has been added to allow better worldbuilding. Especially in the first city, NPCs don't just drop monologs. Partymembers respond something, too. ^^

There is now an easy and a "hard" route for the beginning. You can either just get going, cross the worldmap and enter the droon station, but you will have to pull through with less potions.
On the easy route you'll cross the city first, get more tutorials (and more insults by Meling ^^) and can buy items.

The battle tutorial is not skippable anymore, because surprisingly may players didn't know what mods were or how to use them.

The jumping tutorial is also not skippable anymore. Furthermore with the "Salto" a new mechanic has been added that can be useful in some cases.

The Menu contains the item "Save". No more savepoints.

English walkthrough in the folder.

A grindstopper has been implemented. With every level higher than the average area level the recieved EP will be reduced by 20%.

Potion tolerance has been implemented. Characters can only use limited amount of potions.

A lot of items have been added, for instance different kinds of books to add AP or EP to a character.

Some new abilities/mods have been added, you can invest your AP in.

Panty-loot: Here and there Ramirez can snitch a pair of panties.



Charakters


Story

The planets of the DEEP 8 universe are populated by different races like for example the mighty Droons with their green martialness, the furry Dominators, also called Summoners or the normally peace loving Dayigons, which is also the race, our protagonist Ramirez belongs too.

Ramirez might be the shyest individual, that you could ever encounter. So, if you play the game, maybe you should’nt try identifying with him, ’cause it probably wont work in most cases.
What also bothers him, is all these thoughts about women. He cannot help thinking about that but when it happens he allways forces himself to stop, for some reason.
Aside from being a social cripple, he’s a respectable fighter and reliable employee.

His female partner Meling is not a very pleasant companion. She’s barely talking to him and when she does, she usually does it in an insulting or humiliating way, which not really raises his confidence. Meling has long beautiful black hair, soft pale skin and nice boobs. That’s at least what Ramirez is thinking at some moments before prohibiting himself to do so.

Aside form being a real fury, Meling weilds a gigantic axe in battle, which enables her to crush any enemy they encouter.

Ramirez and Meling work for the emperor Vagnus of Antia. That is a big city on planet Lisarya, which is mostly populated by Dayigons.
For some weeks now, the people are very anxious, cause’ they seem to face a really great threat. They even have to fear the extinction of their race.
The Droons, allways known for martial behaviour seem to have set their mind to committing a genocide on the Dayigons. They used a weapon called Pluz-Cannon to vaporize several planets and raided others with ground forces. Now they are planning on destroying Lisarya as well with one big bang, but they ran out of the rare mineral Pluz. As soon as they find a new source for it, they would equip their cannon with it and blow up Lisarya immediately. Millions of Dayigons would be dust within a blink.

Now the Dayigons are a nation of lower techological standards and they are facing a superiority. But how hopeless the situation might be, they can’t give in. They try to think of some kind of defense plan against the Droons. For that purpose the unequal duo Ramirez and Meling is sent to an abandoned base of the Droons, where they are supposed to search for weapons or other useful stuff.

With constant tension between them, many awkard situations and in danger of being extinguished at any time, the story begins.

here's a new track sketch for the soundtrack:

expect some bigger update soon. ;)
How does this have zero user comments? It's one of the best-looking 2k3 games floating around on RMN right now.

I'll add the current demo to my list of games to try out this week. ^-^
Thanks a lot! Hyped to read your feedback.
Seems really ambitious for rm2k3! I'll definitely give this game a shot. Anything that has had so much effort put into it, deserves a chance! If you want my honest opinion, the 10 year development cycle does show a bit. The resources seem to come from throughout the years. But then again that's kinda part of the charm, so don't worry too much about that.

Thanks for the feedback.
Yes, the 10 years show. But I feel unable to totally get rid of that fact. ^^ So thanks for encouraging me on it. However the trailer does show some old resources, too. I have to make a new one soon.
You up for beta testing too? :)

Yeah the resources are no biggie. That's something you can always fix later on if necessary. I'm afraid I'm at a pretty critical phase with my own projects atm to be a proper tester, so no. But I'll be back for sure once I get some more spare time :D This game has me interested to say the least.

I forgot to say that as someone who is very familiar with rm2k3 - the effects you've pulled off with the engine seem very impressive.
I could offer mutual testing, too, in case yours is this far already :)

the effects you've pulled off


I try to make an effort to. :) Although I use some plugins. Originally from DynRpg, but now "migrated" into the esayrpg player.
