Battle Royale

Hi Atomblaster
Thanks for the praise! I'm sorry for the slow reply but I hardly check this site anymore. Unfortunately because of becoming a father of a 2 year old boy I don't really have the time to work on the game anymore, although I'd still love to finish it one day! To answer your questions:
You can't kill Kiriyama until a specific event, namely after completing the bomb for Shinji. Next time you fight him, he is killable.
Yes, you can remove the collar. I think the detection is a little dodgy but if you save the game before you try you'll find the sweet spot! Good luck!

If you need anymore help PM me, although please be patient as I said I don't visit here that often. Thanks for playing!

Battle Royale Review

Thank you very much for your review! A fair score and assessment I think. I saw the movie version first and that was the one that made the biggest impression on me, so the music and character portraits are obviously from that. But I can see your point about how they might clash. I did consider having some way for the player to choose between movie portraits and manga portraits, but I couldn't work out an easy way to do it.

To address a couple of points. The clock is on a ten minute timer (i.e. one hour = 10 real minutes). It seems you recruited Megumi just at exactly the same time that she was killed by a scripted event. Unfortunately those bugs do happen, and I never found a way to fix them.
When you randomly encounter Kazuo, he appears on screen after a few seconds. So if you leave the screen, wait a bit, leave the screen again etc, a few times he will go. I know this is not ideal. I really wanted the idea of him being unstoppable and when I had him appear immediately (as soon as the music starts) it was too easy to avoid him.

It's useful to get the perspective of someone who maybe doesn't know BR quite as well, so I can see the frustrating aspects, e.g. lack of direction. I really wanted to finish it off with the 3 additional characters but real life (i.e. having an 8 month old baby ^_^) makes that pretty unlikely for the present.

Anyway, nice review and thanks again!


Ah, I changed it after taking this screenshot. She's just wearing normal school uniform now!

Heiwaboke Crisis

I'm sorry, I'm not sure what you mean. Are there map tiles missing in your game? Do you have the RTP?

New Policies for 2014: A Public Service Announcement

I don't know where you got that idea. It's probably one of the strongest insults you can use in the UK. I mean, although "fuck" is pretty common in TV nowadays you almost never hear "cunt". So yeah, I agree that it's not a word that you can generally use as a bit of banter.

RMN Demographics

I'm from the UK but I live in Tokyo, Japan.

Is it possible to buy Japanese versions of old RPG Maker engines anymore?

They have rpg2000 on the site, through Marketplace, at prices from 7000 to 11000 yen (about £40/$70). I couldn't see any way you can download them digitally from the Enterbrain site though, so you'll probably need a credit card and an address in Japan.

Reminds me of the guy who proposed to his girlfriend through a custom portal level: Here

Heiwaboke Crisis

It's just after the karate dojo, down a short dead end alley. There's a sign of a mermaid outside.

What are you thinking about right now?
I remember seeing the Jesus Christ trilogy game on here a while ago. Kind of funny if you haven't read it. Almost makes me want to try it...
