Hey guys,

I've been working on a 2D RPG game for the last couple of years. Started in 2010, got busy with other things and then picked it back up in 2013. Would you guys mind trying it out and giving me some feedback? Any feedback would be appreciated. Here is the link:

It's for Windows and it's packed with Molebox. Josiah did the music.

Thanks,
Pedro.

Hey guys, has anybody been able to play it? Is it because it's for Windows?

looks like RPG maker...

I'm not totally against RPG maker, but at least use some custom art. Just saying... And SD kinda looks bad at high res. SD was actually developed to cope with low res, so it looks best there.

Hi, tcaudilllg. I didn't use RPG maker. It's written in c++ with SDL. All of the art in those screenshots, except for the purple thingy, was done by a pixel artist named Kodoktua for this game. The purple circle does come from a RPG maker sprite pack.

Could you let me know what SD is?

Hey guys,

I uploaded an updated version.

You can press the 7 key to disable random battles, in case they get too tedious.

I created a project page for the game and uploaded an updated version of the game. Right now, the game has 12 dungeons, 3 side quests and 2 towns. I believe it takes around 6-7 hours to go through the main game.

I don't plan on adding more content besides complementary scenes and adjustments. The plan right now is getting in contact with the artists to order all the remaining art and sfx and getting as much player feedback as possible.

I created a profile in IndieDB for the game. It contains an updated version of the game with improvements based on players' feedback.

Here's the link:

SD = "super deformed". Big head, little body. It's really not working. Not to offend the artists, but the game looks unpolished. the golem has lighting that contrasts completely with the background. Look in Final Fantasy 6: the tones of the enemy graphics and the background use roughly the same illuminosity. I look at this game and I think "RPG Maker random hackjob by somebody who's in 8th grade". I would improve the battle graphics and replace the sprites with larger characters. See the Phantasy Star games for the proportions you ought to be using.

Ah I understand what you're saying about the graphics. It's not the artist's fault, I was the one piecing stuff together. It's too late (and expensive) for me to change the character sprites, but definitely is knowledge for the next game.

If you played it a little, do you happen to have any feedback on the gameplay? Thanks for the feedback.
