Everything Turns Gray
A Post Apocalyptic Open World RPG

What is it?
Everything Turns Gray is an open-world sand-box or "play-ground" style CRPG set in a realistically bleak, harsh, and inhospitable post-apocalyptic wasteland. Immediate comparisons that come to mind would obviously include the Fallout series and its inspiration, Wasteland. While of course I was inspired by these classics of the genre, the more meaningful inspiration for EtG, in terms of mood, tone, and message, was the novel The Road by Cormac McCarthy. The end goal is less a light hearted or humorous romp through post apoclayptia and more a brutally accurate simulation of a world destroyed. For this reason, rather than enemy robots or mutants, your chief concerns in EtG are the cold, dehydration, starvation, fatigue, and omnipresent radiation. In other words, a whole new spin on "survival horror", with the emphasis firmly on the survival. Unlike in any Fallout game, you must keep yourself fed and hydrated to live, and finding food and water and shelter makes up the basis of the game's greatest challenge.

New OLD Demo

I uploaded a local download for the April 2009 demo because the only available download link was a dead link to my old Ghostlight Games site.

If somebody were to download it, play it, and make sure it works that would be pretty cool. I think it's the right folder but I haven't tested it or anything.

That said this project is still on Hiatus-probably-really-meaning-cancelled-but-don't-want-to-concede-to-reality having not been worked on in five years. Do not mean to get any hopes up for my 42 subscribers. Holy shit this has 42 subscribers.

I do think about revisiting an ETG LIKE game from time to time these days. It would just need to be smaller in scope, because as one reviewer correctly pointed out, I set myself an almost impossible task here.

Max McGee posted screenshots: OH MY GOODNESS SYSTEM OVERLOAD 404
I thought this was called "Everything Turns Gay" when I first glanced it...
Awesome game, very much reminds me of System Shock and Fallout, Can't wait to play this!
(downloading ASAP)
This sounds as awesome as Mage Duel. I'm going to try this.
Max I love Mage Duel but you have herd that before this game is really good the only problem is the battle system. The default in Mage Duel is fine because Mage Duel is about focused story drivin battles this game could really benefit from a Side View Battle System. Just my opinion hope this helps. Still one of the best game on this site.

Let's start a dialog about this, captain. Why do you think the perspective of the battle system would make such a substantial difference?
I just think with game being as big as it is going to end up the Frontview perspective will get stale. However I do not really like frontview it is usually a turn off for me. I'm sure that this game will be awesome no matter battle system you use. Also the difficulty in this game is ridiculous I could not even servive one battle.

I at least hope to god that A) you are exaggerating or B) you are at least referring to the first battle outside the tutorial.

If you died during the tutorial, I don't even know what to tell you....
The snakes in your tech demo. After the tutorial lol.

Yeah, well that's the tech demo. Also, I meant to remove the fight with the four small vipers; don't think I ever did.
Your game is pretty cool since I'm kinda a fan of the Fallout series. Can't wait for the full game.

I have restructured my game pages. Behold!
I have beheld!

Also, can I use some of the chapsets for my side project in VX? I need some computers...
Hey Max, are there only three areas accessible in the demo? I want to make sure I'm done before I review.
Not that I am rushing you but how is this coming?
When I try to play the game, it won't let me play it. It just shuts off a second after it comes up. Anyone know how to fix this?
I don't really like the graphics
Because there is a lot of paint edit? XD

Well unlike 99.9999% of the community I have actually...released....three full games so anything is technically possible, but like all of my RPG Maker projects this has been on Hiatus for I don't know...over a year now? Or something like that. I don't keep track of dates very well.
