DEVOURER51'S PROFILE

------------------------MY GAME------------------------------

I'm currently working on a game that's like an adult oriented Final Fantasy. It's very heavily dialogue based, and if you don't enjoy the story, then you probably won't enjoy the game. I will admit that the beginning is pretty cookie cutter. It gets better the longer you stick with it, and I'm going in another direction with the second installment that should be more interesting. I'll finish it no matter what, but it's always nice to get a little bit of encouragement to get me in the mood to work on it.

------------------------GAME PLAY----------------------------

Mature themes. It has a lot of crude humor. It has a lot of sexual jokes. It has alcohol usage, sex, and graphic descriptions of violence, including murder, rape, etc. Although the graphics make it look childish, I assure you, it is not meant for a young audience.

Also, combat is turn based. You need to find out what enemies strengths/weaknesses are, and battle accordingly. It's a pretty simple concept.

------------------HERO'S PREFACE------------------------

My first part is done. It's called Hero's Preface, and it is basically used as an introduction to the main characters. It introduces the main heroes, Karnac, Larz, Jack, Cecelia, and Celeste. It also introduces the main villains, Kildran, The Robed Man, and Shadow. The ending sets up the plot for the second installment.

---------------KARNAC'S AWAKENING---------------

This is the second part, which is in progress right now. I can't say too much about it without revealing huge plot spoilers. Basically, Karnac and Larz wake up in a strange place, and have to find a way to get out. They become caught up in a centuries old conflict in the process, are forced to make some tough calls, and meet a few interesting characters along the way. New party members will include Yukame, a foreign bowwoman, and Gilgamesh, a mighty hero. Along the way, Karnac meets his great grandfather, and he awakens Karnac's dormant powers. He is then molded into a powerful fighter.

-------OBJECTIVES (HERO'S PREFACE)-----------

The main objectives I had in mind when making this part was to build suspense for the next game, and to make the audience grow attached to my heroes through good dialogue and original personalities.

-------- Author Update 7/23/2018 ------------
Game didn't do as well as I would have liked and people didn't seem to enjoy the dialogue or characters. Considering I spent a lot of time on it I don't feel it's worth my time to make any more. I have almost no creative freedom and have to use the characters and artwork I've been given and yet people will still complain nonstop about that which is very disheartening. Not only that but there is no built in word checker so when you have massive amounts of dialogue you will miss some typos and people never fail to bring that up either. All in all I haven't had the best response and the game didn't do well. My objective was to create a new and unique anti hero that people would enjoy to learn more about, people didn't really enjoy it that much and I'm not wasting more time. I will probably finish out the rest of the story but it will be a for me only, I'm not wasting time translating it from a short story into a game as it takes much too long and is not very rewarding.

Case in point, I have other projects I'd rather work on such as a pen and paper RPG that you can play with friends. This game is like DnD but I want to make it more casual.

Hero's Preface

Nice, I'm glad you enjoyed it Linkis. Yea, for the other two games, I'm gonna keep dialogue shorter. So far, this is what I've gotten in feedback, tell me if it sounds about right or if you would add anything to my list.

-Shorter dungeons and add puzzles to them. (I will definitely do this)
-Shorter dialogue (agreed) and less cussing/violence (we'll see about that one)
-Cabinets... (just... cabinets.)
-More exploration loot like I did in Valan.
-Better level scaling
-More gold from exploring and killing monsters (I assumed when you upgraded gear that you would be selling all your old equipment when I play tested, so I calculated gold costs accordingly.)

I have a cast of cool characters in mind for the next part and I think the second part will be much more interesting in terms of story and characters.

PS, you should write me a review, haha

Ellie Starling's Very Long Walk

I seriously thought for a second that it said "Emo Version"

Hero's Preface

Nice to hear that you like my main character. His personality is most heavily based off of mine, lol. It should pick up after you get done in Olan. Jack is my favorite character, and I always have fun writing dialogue for him, so hopefully you like him too.

Hero's Preface

The game is done already llan14. If I do anything else to it, it will only be bug fixes or game tweaks. Feedback for this game will mostly be for helping me to improve the other two games I have planned that will finish my story.

Hero's Preface

I made it a little hard to find on purpose, but if you are having trouble finding Ifrit's Chasm, here is a little map for you. Start at Dalith and follow the arrows to it.



Hero's Preface

ok, I put the game rating at the top so it should be the first thing that gets read. I also fixed the cabinets in the last download so that's not a problem.

Hero's Preface

Ok, just private message me for your thoughts about my story. I don't want to have spoilers, lol.

No, I like the sound of Darkness magic more. It's used in other places too, like Fairy Tail.

Hero's Preface

Thank you very much Frozen_Phoenix for that feedback, I appreciate it. Thank you Linkis as well.

I fixed the bugs. Yea, I did the Ifrit one on purpose so I could get a screen shot for the game submission, but then I forgot to change it back to a slime, lol. I also fixed the Capitol bug that let you get in without losing Jack. It was because I widened the street and forgot to compensate for it. I don't think it's ready for a new release just quite yet, but maybe after I fix the cabinets and the lack of treasure.

Also, I think it starts to get a bit better after you get back from Olan. I started to develop my story a bit better, and I really enjoy the Pub scenes. Hopefully you'll like it. Also, there is a sex Easter egg in Sea Side. (after you get Jack) That's your reward for being awesome, now go find it guys! lol

Hero's Preface

author=Linkis
Chapter 1
8.5 hours and still playing :)
Damn, how long is this First Chapter :)

Aside from a few spelling/grammer errors, which don't really take anything away from the game since they are not many, I'm still enjoying this game very much.
I've also mentioned those cabinets :) looks like the bottom is a wedge stuck in the crack where the wall and floor meet and the top is leaning out into the room.

I'd say this game is well worth continueing with Chap. 2&3.....SO GET TO WORK :)


Yea, I had around 10 hours of game play when I tested it myself. Of course, I knew exactly what to do and where to go, so it could be longer for you guys. After you get the three orbs and combine them you'll be getting close to the end of the game. I think my dungeons get too long towards the end of the game, but I'm not sure. I wanted them to be long and challenging.
