FAENON'S PROFILE

Thirty something year old long time rpgmaker lurker turned semi active rmn poster in it for the long haul on a game he started as a teen ager. I'm also married, a Dad, a high school Philosophy and Theology teacher with a PhD from the University of Oxford, a committed Christian, and a writer (see my twitter).

What's the closest RMN has ever got to FFVI and Chrono Trigger?

Which finished RMN games are most similar to Final Fantasy VI and Chrono Trigger?

In my life I find myself just wanting to play those games over and over again. What's the closest we've ever got to these in the RMN scene?

By 'like these games' I mean:

-Complete
-Story/narrative led, with great dialogue (i.e. not the DQ approach)
-Strong characters and an ensemble cast
-A fantasy or steampunk setting, or at least starting in one
-SNES aesthetic

The closest I remember getting to this were The Way and Forever's End (though the latter not complete).

What else would people recommend?

Forever's End

I know Nico is pretty much only on YT and Twitch now, but I wonder if he has any more of this game stashed away some place...


Or if he will ever get around to finishing this one which is much more interesting than his videos of playing other people's games!

Yearly comment that this game should be remade or finished xd


Seconded.

The Cerebral Symphony Review

Ok, well fair enough.

Thanks Halibabica.

You know what happened with this game? I started it when I was 15 and worked really hard on the first two chapters.

Then I went to college, got married, got a job, started having kids, and the challenge became just to finish the game at all--that was my goal, rather than for it to all hold together in a super serious way!

You know what I learned? Making a game is a LOT of work. It's really hard for one person. All the old school 2d rpgs I/we love, they had huge production teams behind them for a reason.

So fair enough.

No comment on the character creation system?

I'm glad you enjoyed some of the characters and the character interactions though. Writing is really my strong point. That's why since I finished TCS I'm just focusing on my writing. (Check out my Twitter, or my patreon.com/luketarassenko , or the latest TCS blog!)

Critical Hit! (now playing Theia: The Crimson Eclipse)

Woohoo! All of a sudden I can watch all the videos! Not sure what happened... Maybe you changed something, or maybe it's because I'm on holiday and it's a router-level filter at home used to protect my daughter etc. that was messing things up! I've got a lot of catching up to do. Thanks so much for doing this, Hali!

Critical Hit! (now playing Theia: The Crimson Eclipse)

Yay! Lol, all of the new videos are unviewable with my family-friendly filter on. Never mind. Looking forward to getting to a computer where I can watch them! Thanks, Hali!

I haven't given up on it. I just had a major bout of depression this month and didn't do much of anything for three weeks.

I checked the description of Pt.4 and removed a word that might have been an issue, but Pt.5's title and description are perfectly fine, so I don't know what went wrong there. I guess that might be the episode where I dropped an F bomb by accident? I dunno.

Anyway, I can't really take screenshots while playing, but I suppose the video thumbnails would work. I'll try to get back up and running very soon.


Sorry to hear this. I get it. I've been quite low recently too, with a particularly big dip about a month ago. Global pandemics are tough. Stay thankful. One of the things I'm thankful for is TCS LPs! But no pressure, no rush, at all.

Critical Hit! (now playing Theia: The Crimson Eclipse)

Don't give up with TCS, Hali! You can beat those spiders.

It's about to get really good after the dungeon you are currently in...

I think Part 4 and 5 could be unviewable to me because of something written in the video title and/or description. Any chance you could change them?

Also...I miss screenshots in this thread.

Many thanks!
