"You might find the festival strange now, Lunita. But the people of Merryday wouldn't be able to live the way they do if not for the blessings of the moon. I think you will understand. Perhaps not now, but one day when it is your duty to protect them as the Oracle."



Crescent Prism is a story-driven RPG that follows the story of Lunita, a young girl from the bustling hamlet of Merryday Village. Each year, the people of Merryday give their thanks to the moon during the Crescent Festival. Though antiquated as Lunita sees it, her mother Astrid is confident that she will one day understand its importance, as expected of the one who would take her place as Oracle.

Little do Lunita and Astrid know that a great disaster would befall them on the eve of the festival, changing their lives forever.



Crescent Prism aims to be a medium-length, 6-10 hour RPG with a colorful cast of characters and numerous monsters to fight. The Chapter 1 release brings you through the first segment of the game, chronicling Lunita's adventures as a child.

  • Colorful, custom graphics, sound, and music.

  • A fully custom User Interface thanks to the powerful Luna Engine script set.

  • Unleash powerful Astra abilities in battle, turning the Moon in your favor!

  • Skippable encounters! If you're a high enough level, flick those pesky random encounters away with the push of a button!

  • Light puzzle-solving with a stretchy dog friend.

  • Animated battle backgrounds. WHOA!




Crescent Prism originally began development in 2017 and has gone through a number of changes since its initial concept. While there is currently no timeframe for the full game's release, Chapter 1 will be a standalone release!

v1.1.0 released! New difficulty modes!

UPDATE: v1.1.1 hotfix added, to address the Exp Lock not working as intended.

Crescent Prism Chapter 1 has been updated to v1.1.0! This patch adds new difficulty modes, along with a few other fixes. If you like options, then this is the version for you!



Full list of changes:

New difficulty modes have been added:
- Easy mode makes all enemies easier.
- Hard mode makes all enemies more difficult. You will also gain 50% less EXP from non-boss encounters once you've hit the encounter threshold for a given area, and 66% when above it.
- You can switch between Easy and Normal at any time in the System Menu. Hard mode may only be selected at the start of the game and cannot be changed once the game has started.
NOTE: If you import save files from versions 1.0.2 or earlier, they will be set to Normal mode by default.

Changes and fixes:
- Fixed some mapping errors.
- The threshold for skipping enemy encounters is now determined by the party's average level rather than the party leader's level.
- You can now toggle battle animations from the system menu.
- Fixed that one missing pixel in the status effect bubbles because everyone in the Discord told me to.

v1.1.1:
- The Exp Lock should now work as intended.
- EXP Lock and Money Lock are now granted to you at the start of Chapter X1.

I'm really hoping to create the best RPG I can possibly make, straight from the heart and soul.

Oh, I see.

This looks quite promising, to say the least. And if the music is going to be as good as in Soma Spirits, you'll instantly have my vote in any case. Best of luck on this project!

By the way, is this going to be another commercial game?

I'll tell Ape to do his best! Not that we ever have to worry about that, of course.

I'm not sure at the moment if the game will be commercial or not. Still working some things out before I make a decision there.

Commercial decision is a heavy one. That said, I would have spent money on even Brave Hero Yuusha as it is. The work you do is commercial worthy in my eyes. It's more or less up to you if you want that burden or just want to keep it as a hobby.

Well for what it's worth, I estimated that Soma Spirits would be 1-2 hours long and it ended up being 4-6 so...

I'd love to see this game being arround 5 hours long aswell ,since most games I downloaded lately have been like 1 hour long ,and I'm pumped up to follow this games development since it looks interessing af ,but if its gonna be short again ,I'll prob leave it to play when school starts and I have spare time x3
who did the scripting for the battle system? it looks incredible!
All of the UI customization is done through the Luna Engine scripts, battle interface included!
just finished the demo! the moon cycle mechanic is really unique and interested and I really like the way it was implemented. in the final game, do you think there'll be any gift/reward item for loading a demo save? i've seen some games do that, so just asking.
Awesome! I'm glad you enjoyed it! :D

The gift idea sounds neat, but considering how far off the release of the final game is (another year at the bare minimum) I can't say for sure if demo saves will be compatible with the final build. But we'll see!
Played a bit of demo, unfortunately had to go, but from what I've seen already I am confident this is going to be a positive experience.

Everything in the game seems to be custom graphics and I find just the fact that the dev is willing to spend their efforts on this amazing. Also the graphics on their own look really cute, colorful and nice so far. It gives me an Earthbound-y vibe.

The plot started of somewhat cliched in my opinion, with a flashforward to the future plot point and a glimpse of Big Bad, then dream-like vision and protagonist waking up at their home in bed, starting off their daily routine.

What I found really cool was the moment when I was asked to tell my birthday and assigned a zodiac sign based on the date. I must confess to being a tad bit interested in astrology, so I'm really looking forward to how this will play out further in the game. My guess is that it will somehow affect my magic abilities, like perhaps maybe I will be proficient with fire element (my character is Aries).

Another thing I found amazing was how the game started off with action and a very heated moment, but incorporated teaching player about basic mechanics like enemy encounters, interacting with environment (my guess is that there are going to be puzzles?) and weaknesses. I also found masking basic tutorial as main protagonist doing her chores a nice touch and a creative solution.

It looks like the developer has put thought and effort in this game, so I'm looking forward to playing the rest of the demo.

Aw, this game had to be put on hiatus? That's too bad. I hope you can get back to it eventually, though. Best of luck with whatever is on your list of priorities right now!

Hey there! Hope I didnt disappoint everyone TOO much. Haha. But yes, Crescent Prism is on hold for the time being for two reasons:

1. Over the summer I took upon significantly more responsibility in my work life and had been very pressed for time to work on a project of this scale alongside it and,
2. In lieu of that life change, I decided to take upon a smaller project: Brave Hero Yuusha EX

To be honest, I have barely worked on CP since July, and I don't want to become one of those developers who drip-feeds tiny updates for years. So I would rather be transparent and put the game on hiatus since the game has not been actively worked on in at least five months. Some devs can consider working on a game 15 minutes a month as "in development" but I guess I'm not one of them. Haha.

I hope I can return to it someday! There's a lot of big revisions I need to make when I pick it back up again.
