A 1hr to 1hr 30min long Demo of Blackened Souls, my current project. Looking for feedback and trying to spread the word about my game. I'm very proud of it, and yes I did use some RTP files, but I've brought them to life, my battle system does not disappoint, as it's not the basic system the maker comes with. No one has be disappointed by the game yet, now I want yall to try it for me. :) any feedback is fine, the good the bad and the ugly. be honest.

Characters:

Arin (by default): A young swordsman, who does a lot of traveling and has a strong personality. Loves to help people and protecting his beloved best friend, Rhea. He resides in Yunzit Slums, south of the Capital of Yunzit.

Rhea: Arin's lfie long best friend and room-mate. She is known as a Healer, and is rather good at her craft. She has an upbeat personality and will stand by Arin's side at all costs, no matter what.

Nyla: Not much is known about her, she is the Guardian of The Earth Realm who resides in The Light Realm, and she has saw bad times coming to The Earth Realm. She seeks an unknown Hero, bringing her to Earth.

Shyma: She is Nyla's proctector and a strong warrior, with a stern yet pleasant personality.

Sephir: A wolf type being from another world, who has come to help The Guardians with their mission to save The Earth Realm from being overcome by total darkness.



Story Teaser:

For eons the Dark Jewel has spread throughout the universe devouring one world after another with it's darkness. Now it has fallen to Earth Realm, as Nyla and Shyma, The Guardians, descend to Earth behind it with hopes of finding their mystery hero. Sadly, the jewel is discovered by Demons who plan to use it's power to take back Earth Realm. Little do these foolish devils know, the jewel has an agenda and a mind of it's own.



Features:

Fury Attacks (These are my version of a Limit Breaker.)
Fury Mode Menu (This allows you to pick how you will gain FP (Fury Points) through 20 defferent Fury Modes, giving the player more customization.)
Side View Battles
Animated Enemies
Classic RPG style Gameplay

Hello,
(Sorry for any bad grammar etc; English isn't my native language) I just played your game and enjoyed it, but there are some things I would like to remark:
-Too many spaces sometimes.
-The time setting isn't obvious, because you are using modern sprites and sprites from the middle ages all together, which is confusing. Try to set a standard or explain in the story WHY there are swords and billboards used together...
-The fighting system is ok, but I didn't fully understood the TP part: I thought you would gain TP because of a certain preselected 'stance'. For example: 'if you heal, you will gain TP', but I was also able to get TP just by attacking. Therefore some explanation is required. Also, the TP attacks are a bit overpowered and at the same time you are able to gain it very quickly. Maybe some tips: Add new stances by levelling and new TP attacks which don't require the whole TP gauge. At the other hand I like the idea of a preselected stance, because of which you will get TP if you use it; it adds some strategy.
-Why has every character on the same level the same HP, Mana and TP?
-Could you add explanations to items ánd specs to weapons and armor?
-I stopped the game just before boarding the ship; I can't pull on key items like 'Sailor outfit' or was this the end of the demo?
-The story sometimes switched a bit too much from the main character to sub characters (like the demons).

Ofcourse also some good points:
-You have developed a interesing story in which I see potential.
-Despite there is still no deep character development, I think there could the characters are well suited for that (I see Rhea as the most interesting one and I am curious about her and Arin's past: Maybe you could add memories (and to make them intersting you could add crucial links between the past and present).
-Good music
-Nice artwork and animations during battles (despite that Rhea shoots with her bow to heal XD, a healing Arrow ;P?)
-Nice icons for items and skills.

I hope to see your game when it's finished.

Thank you for taking the time to let me know what you think, and yes most of these issues I am aware of, but this was a very early stage demo. U can board the ship but you need to go back to the Inn and get dressed first. I as far as TP that has been redone alot now and u no longer gain it for every attack, it's FP now though, and it is intended to be a limit breaker, which is why it's over powered and take 100 points that will not be changed but the rate at which you can gain it is. I can't really go without showing the sub characters when i did, it may not make sense at this time to a player but this story is told through the characters and their pasts. All will make since once you play the complete game, every little scene has a purpose for later in the game, it will be one of those "OOHHH!!!" moments. lol Thank you for everything, since I have also added more details about weapons, this was simply meant as a DEMO teaser for the actual game. I'm constantly working on it and making it better and it will be very polished before release, with side quests as well. Thanks again! go put on that sailor outfit at the Inn and conitnue, the Demo will end on it's own.
oh yeah, about the tech, and age.. that will also be explained, but basically in this version of earth only certain places will have tech, its basically a mix of both worlds in a sense. i can't tell much with out giving away the actual main plot. But nothing is what it appears to be in this game, once you play the full version you'll get it. Also I fixed the characters being so close haha cause i also noticed that.
Hey, I played your game for one of my First Impressions videos. I gave some advice and such. I hope you enjoy :) Oh, and if you want or need any help, just let me know.
