Yo there, I put this because I do lot heavy changed on devil boy quest gameplay, It can be good or no but who care!
First! A TOOL!
this is secret but there some kind of tool that allow you to unlock secret area contain rare item. Ex: Shovel... you need talk to a tool maker at F2 of Blacksmith in Maduin.
a shovel can be used to unlock a ground passage (there one in Tsugi and other place too)
#<You may say:that so common in rpg game, is that all you got?>
there are more tool, but there also consumable tool, like candle can be used to look trough dark( just add some more sight distance)
#<You may say:It's so troublesome, what if I run out of it? I'll stuck in darkness and beaten by enemy, what a pain...>
I don't want to create crazy craft system because I'm so damn lazy to do it, in the end I just put that event overworld, let say you want make torch, then you need cut 10 wood then bring it to old man in Ilya village, Since torch is more longer and brighter than small candle.
#<You may say:What is this? I need go back very far just to get consumable tool? oh man, It's really troublesome...>
I know that, but I make it in purpose... the lazy player might just skip make tool and just beat the game half way, yeah don't mind them as long as they enjoy it.
#<You may say:aren't you are the one who lazy?>
Shut up. I don't want talk about that.
okay there dark system-
#<You may say:ah that sound borin... there many game have that too>
I know, but my dark system is cool they changed everytime! like real darkness
#<You may say:you just use random var or whatever is that, nothing special about it>
Now battle system, the Mode KZL gauge is reset every battle, so It's harder to cast Limit Break Skill,
#<You may say:hey! that's cruel man! I can't beat boss without that!>
shut up! if the gauge didn't reset you can charge it by fighting small fry after it full you release it at boss so you can have easy win!
I change that so player have hard time defeating bosses, make it more challenging.
Uh well the main hero have too much ability there might be more coming but for now...
*Teaching! Learn enemy ability (Not all of their ability can be learned, just some of it)
*Hand Of Madun (Steal enemy stuff, from weapon, item, money, etc)
*Izanagi (Ability to life again (It's not like Life3 or rerais from Final Fantasy alike) but not at time he dead he revived, It's like zombie, he will dead for awhile then he back to life! so if three of them dead at same time it will result game over expect there one still alive)
#<You may say:Is this guy superman or something? he can do whatever he want>
then I don't have tell about ability stuff, the next is co-op skill
It's a skill that require 2 people(Lexar+other) this skill can be used when two people or more have condition, Not Death/Fallen, not under bad status that make them unable to move or seal their ability like Sleep, Stun, or Silence, have enough MP/SP, and weapon used, if this condition break then the skill will be unable to use, even after you cast it and in charge time but suddenly enemy put one of you sleep then the skill will be canceled.
#<You may say:That's hard one...>
Secret in learn skill
you may know this but in l there bunch of book about skill, they located in Library in every big town but sometime they located somewhere inside castle too.
#<You may say:Don't you have some better system about skill?>
Of course I have but I'm too lazy to do it, what da ya want? skill tree? based on level? learn from tome? buy it from magic shop? that borin, I more like put skill in a treasure chest and hide that treasure chest in a maze, but that just way too crazy, so I make a library contain many skill book, and you need to check it with all character you have, let say there book about Ruby Blaster that can be only used by Karen, but you need to chose who read it, if you chose Lexar then no one will get the skill beside Lexar don't like read books anyway...
#<You may say:Hell there many character and many skill not only that check every book with every character?>
It's more challenging than normal skill system wasn't it?
#<You may say:It's not challenging It's more sound annoying>
Learn skill trough... other way than read books.
I'm so lazy to make a party member fight each other in order to get special skill(CO-OP and alike) so I make it lika dramatic interview, you can found it in haunted PUB, it's not really haunted, actually It was fancy Pub covered by illusion that make it look like haunted, the trial is easy just say yes or no at the end, oh yeah I warn you, if your HP is low you will die and send to game over screen, but if you manage to survive, you will get lot's of damage, let say they do some inhuman training kind of it and get a CO-OP skill and alike.
#<You may say:This is weird training...>
yeah I don't really care about what they do anyway...
oh well that's all for now...
(Every words after this -> is a some friend of mine thought, so don't mind it, it really useless speech, even It's make me little motivated...)
