Long ago, our world was created, born from the wishes and dreams of four benevolent gods. From Their hands sprang forth life; from Their imagination, a purpose for that life. Under the guidance of the Four Gods, the land flourished. The people used Their generous gifts to cultivate the land, to raise mighty kingdoms, and to live among one another in peace and harmony.

However, this era of prosperity was not to last. From the depths of darkness rose an aberration - the Dark One, a being which embodied the antithesis of all that the Four Gods had wished for: Pain. Loneliness. Hatred. Fear. Despair. In its malice and depravity, it clawed its way to the top of Turovero, a tower which rose endlessly to the gates of Heaven, before usurping the throne of the Gods at its summit and casting Them away.

Under the influence of the Dark One, the people now knew true despair. The land grew barren, the kingdoms waged war, and society began its slow descent into destruction. To this day, no one knows for certain what happened to the Four Gods who gave life to our world.

Yet not all hope is lost. Even now, the Celestial Tower still stands, waiting for its chosen warriors to free it from the Dark One’s grasp. You who now stand before the gates of destiny, before the eyes of Heaven and the heart of darkness itself… what will you risk to make the light of truth shine brightly once again?


Summary

Turovero: The Celestial Tower is a freeware, dark fantasy role-playing game created with RPG Maker VX Ace.

Players will take on the role of four young adventurers - Sigurd, a brave and kind-hearted knight, Leilia, a gentle and motherly cleric, Edric, a gifted yet sharp-tongued mage, and Ruby, a cheeky, fun-loving thief - who have no recollection of their lives prior to meeting one another. Determined to free their world from the influence of an ancient evil, the Dark One, the group sets forth on their most perilous journey yet as they climb the mysterious divine tower, Turovero.

However, as the heroes ascend the Celestial Tower, they begin to realize that not everything is as it seems. Just what is the Dark One that plagues their world so, and what truly happened to the Four Gods of legend? The answers to these questions lie in wait for them at the top of the tower… but do they truly want to discover them?

Turovero: The Celestial Tower features:

  • A marriage of some of the best elements of RPG Maker games: the dungeon-crawler gameplay and aesthetic of old-school JRPGs with the mystery, intrigue, and macabre elements of the RPG Horror genre.
  • An original, dark, psychological story with multiple routes and endings, determined by player choices, exploration, and even battle outcomes.
  • All-original title, character, enemy, and cutscene artwork by a team of talented artists:

    - Title artwork by Cristina Moreno
    - Character artwork by Genkaiko
    - Enemy artwork by Amy C.
    - Cutscene artwork by Meaka


  • An entirely original soundtrack.
  • Environmental puzzle solving requiring the player to use character skills to their advantage.
  • A wide variety of optional, character-centric scenes to expand the story and affect its outcome.


Important Note: While not strictly a horror game, Turovero will contain light horror elements as well as scenes of violence and other sensitive topics. It is recommended for players aged 14 and up.

Answer:
If you have both keys, then you should be able to open both houses. Go to the house on the right, if i recall correctly, and interact with the saw on the table, to cut the doll.
If the one on the right doesn't have a saw, but a fireplace, then go to the one on the left.
I can't properly explain how excited I was to see this with that nice little "Completed" beside the title when I came on to look for something new to play. I've been following development on and off since it was first announced, as I was a huge fan of your first game, Prom Dreams. I'm about to get started with this one and I'm looking forward to seeing just where the story goes this time around!

Follow the Runes on the paper you find in the bell keeper's room from left to right. You have to make sure you're doing the whole sequence without leaving the room or messing up because the variable controlling the puzzle with reset to 0.

More simply, if the bells are "1, 2, 3, 4" from left to right, the order to shoot them would be as follows:

3, 2, 3, 1, 4, 3
Cannot wait! I need please help with Cedric in the room with 3 sets of candles. In 6 hours could'not complete it. Love the game!!!

You mean Edric haha? I'm assuming you're talking about floor 6.

Only the torches labeled with "good" qualities should be lit. Light only the following torches: Astuteness, Passion, Resolve, Devotion, Talent, Creativity, Integrity, and Selflessness. Leave all the others unlit. You can check the words attached to the torches with the enter/confirm button.


Hope you enjoy the rest of the game!!
JUST finished the game- Loved it. Waiting for a sequel

Thanks! While the game doesn't really lend itself to a sequel per se, you can definitely replay it to get the alternate routes. ;)

Well, I'm stumped.


I hid your comment due to unhidden spoilers, sorry! Answer is down below.

Read the plaques at the base of each statue, then shoot the switches in the order of the numbers mentioned on each plaque. The switches are labeled 1 through 4 in Roman numerals.

Example: One of the plaques reads "four years of suffering yielded twice the bravery I'll ever posses and one single song to unite us all." So you would hit the switches in this order: 4, 2, 1.
Oh, sorry about the spoilers! Thanks for the help. I knew it had to be something like that but just couldn't figure it out. Great game, by the way.

Answer below the spoiler cut:

Only the four flowers directly on top of each of the four runes should be grown; the others should be melted with Ember.


Hope that helps!
