Hey fellow fans, thought it might be a good time for an update considering Lance issued one as well.

Game development is chugging along. It never stopped. Even while I was getting my IRL stuff together, TheMage churned out a brand new dungeon that is just amazing. Unlike the demo, it will be the new "first" dungeon the team encounters.

In other news, I've decided to go with the caterpillar system in lieu of the 8-way movement. The version of 8-way movement that Lance has is laggy, and the version I was trying to use actually renders other events useless, which essentially kills the game, so I won't be able to add that unless we get someone on the team who's already figured out how to do it.

The magic system is getting revamped, along with several tilesets, and most of the demo will actually be rewritten for the final game, so in the coming months you should see some cool new stuff.

Still working! ;)

Small font update: we have composers making original/custom music, we're customizing just about every sprite used in one way or another, we're making all new enemies and spell animations and sound effects, artists creating original in-game scenario art, and the full plot is thiiick. In other words, the game has lots and lots that you haven't seen before, instead of the same old "infringing" resources. Still the same, we're all trying to be rather hush hush about the whole thing.

I noticed you recently requested a map designer for RPGXP. I'd be willing to help.

Additionally, MediaFire removed the demo download for TOS violation. (figures their initials would be MF)

Laaate reply!

Its coming along nicely! A lot of the graphics for the game are being slowly but surely churned out. We switched engines which has taken up some time but the new engine gives us much more elbow room.

To elaborate on this...

The plot is 100% finished (it's nearly 50 pages, and when the game is completed it should rival Chrono Trigger at 20-30 hours); the script is a work in progress. All of the weapon, armor, and accessory stats are built and ready for implementation into the game engine. We've changed upgraded the engine and many of the sprites are complete, although we are still building new material slowly but surely.

We're also currently working on the game maps and as we speak I am assembling enemy and boss sprites. We also have three wonderful musicians who have composed a soundtrack that currently sits at approximately 30 new tracks, many of which (in my personal opinion) rival Chrono Trigger's. Just wait until you all hear Rush's theme... It's freaking amazing!

If we have any serious, dedicated mappers we'd love to have you aboard to help speed along production. We would have to see an example map to see what you're capable of, and we're not really willing to just have anyone aboard at this point. If you're an interested spriter/mapper and can demonstrate your ability, feel free to shoot myself or Bekkler a PM and we can discuss our options.

I'm so sad to hear this project is canceled, I've been following it since the start and made this account just to ask why? :(
