Shadow Seeker

Looks really solid! I love the variety of mechanics in play here. I need to give the demo a try!

Nice to see people keep the RPG Maker horror torch alive!

@Punkitt, really impressive title screen! I love the tone. Btw, have you played Adventures of Lolo games? (I'm a huge fan of them) I kinda get those vibes. Although it might just be that rolley ball character.

@Deckiller, might be ez puzzle, but I don't get it lol. I like the visuals though! The dungeons especially looks awesome!

@Bandito, that kinda looks like early Dragon Quest town in both good and the bad. If that's what you're going for, fair enough, but otherwise I'd agree with Cap_H in that it could be condensed by a lot! I do like the variety and individual detail you've put to the houses though.

@Pyramid_Head, I like how well everything fits together. Love the tone of it all too.

Featured Game Give Away!

I've been spending more time watching playthroughs on youtube of F&H 1 and 2...

Yeah I totally get why people are playing like that. Especially how difficult the game can feel initially, it's nice solace to get a successful save. That's why I'm designing the second game to support that kind of gameplay more. F&H: Termina has got a safe savespot in the very first area without any catch really. (time does progress every time you save the game, but that only affects certain endings)

In general, Termina is going to be more welcoming experience. I don't want the game to be as hostile towards players.

What Videogames Are You Playing Right Now?

@Punk_Kricket, the early SMT games are really great! I adore the first Shin Megami Tensei on SNES. There's something in that game that has me hooked everytime I play it, more-so than later SMT games for some reason. I think it's partly because of the very quick pace you move around and in and out of battles.

I have yet to try the initial Megami Tensei series on NES. I heard those are brutal to the point of ridiculous frustration, so I might just skip them altogether.

Fear and Hunger

double post sorry! D:

Fear and Hunger

Congratulations on the release and on featured game status! Just purchased over on I am greatly looking forward to playing this and I have been for a long time!

Awesome! I think the game is in the best shape it has ever been with the latest update, so maybe it's for the better that you only got it now!

Featured Game Give Away!

@Starmage, I'm glad you got your copy! I wasn't sure if this was a good way to give away keys, like is there some bot scanning internet 24/7 for this kind of stuff? But apparently at least some people were able to grab their copies.

@Knightowl, I updated the Discord link. And yeah, the full version has more leeway in its saves. You get one save free and there is the whole Lucky Coin system that gives you better chances in coin tosses in general. The game does give you safe and sure savepoint later on in the game. The original intent was that the early part is kinda like roguelike where the player is encouraged to try different things with each new playthrough, but I think it's not told well enough and pretty much everyone tries to force their early saves. The game and me is to blame for that, but hopefully you'll be able to get into the groove regardless. If there're any big problems, maybe I can help a bit.

The Featured Game Thread

Oh my. Thank you for the front-page feature! This came out of nowhere! I need to start paying more attention to how my game pages look if stuff like this is possible :O

So... Final Fantasy XVI anyone?

Yeah considering I don't even own a television, I most likely won't be getting a PS5 anytime soon either. New console games are becoming more and more available on PC too, so that might be just as good way to go about playing these games.

PS4 is worth it because of Bloodborne alone imo, but I guess that's just my personal bias. There are great jRPGs around too. Persona 5 felt like it perfected the turn-based battle system imo. Dragon Quest XI was very solid traditional jRPG and I've just recently gained a new love for Yakuza games after dismissing them since playing the first one on PS2 ages ago. Despite them looking like simple brawlers, they are very much jRPGs at their core and this is only made more clear with the upcoming sequel that has turn-based combat system too.

On topic, I heard FF16 will be M-rated, which is absolutely crazy. I didn't think the mainline series would ever go there. The trailer does give a darker look sure, but still a surprise. Also the director of the game is a huge Matsuno fanboy, so Ivalice vibes are probably going to be there.

So... Final Fantasy XVI anyone?

What's everyone's opinion about the game so far?

The game was revealed a while ago and I haven't been able to get it out of my head since. Initially I was a little bit disappointed with the medieval approach, because I've grown to really like the more out-there-pseudo-futuristic worlds later Final Fantasies are known for and I was looking forward to seeing what Square came up with next. Then when the game looked a lot like many other darker fantasy titles from past 6 years or so, I was a bit bummed.

I knew I was going to like the game regardless though, because there has yet to be a mainline entry I didn't like. Since the reveal, the game has been in the back of my head and it has really grown on me. My disappointment has definitely turned into hype.
