TheStory_zps37b778c9.png

 

In a far off island to the west of the conflicted continent of Arcia, lies a small village called Corise.

There, a boy was found on the shores, with his memory a blank slate.

He was helped. A young girl named Seria, who had devoted her life to others, had offered him to stay in her home.

Shortly after, she was found dead.

Attacked by a mob of fiends, the townspeople had said.

In a wreck, the boy did not know what to do.

But after making a few friends in Corise, his decision was to stay.


Though his past had remained a mystery, he has decided to follow Seria's piece of advice.

"You should just forget about the past... You are who you are now."


But a haunted soul cannot rest in peace...

How long can the boy stay in Corise?


Will he recover his memories?


Or will he be forget himself and be forgotten in the void of eternity?

 


TheWorld_zps98eaae9e.png

 

The world of Eternia was not cut for peace.

In the bitter past, endless wars ravaged the land, time and time again.

The gods, angered by human ignorance, bestowed peace upon the land...

At a price.


The race of humans were wiped out, and recreated.

But peace born of fear does not last.

As technology advances again, the tension begins anew.

 


Characters_zps70a5772a.png

 

Characters that are developing:

Reyson-2.png Reyson - Age 17
The main protagonist of the story. Day by day, despair slowly starts to cripple him. He is told that one day he will recover his memory, but he is uncertain. He always remembers what Seria had told him, but there's a small part of him that doesn't want to forget. Reyson has excellent reflexes and is a natural adept with magic, which is rare in people who haven't undergone magical training. His element alignment appears to be that of darkness.

Personality : Reyson doesn't talk much unless required. He tries to talk more often, but verbal communication is one thing that he hates.

Actor37_zpsb09223fd.png Sophie - Age 15
Reyson's closest friend. Sophie is a quirky girl who likes to do what she wants. She can be (and usually is) an airhead, but no one really blames her for being young and naive. Over the past years, she's made "connections" and started getting various gadgets shipped in. Recently, she got into using guns. Surprisingly enough to Reyson, she is actually skilled at employing random techniques; she can enchant bullets to be more powerful or to cause them to inflict various status effects.

Personality : Mika doesn't like talking about herself, although she is very interested in others.
Class : Conjurer

Ohh I think The second screenshot is like a skit in tales games (where there is a private conversation between certain party member), is it right? Cause I love it :3

And I love free healing too (it's nice when there is a healing spot near the boss hehe).

Anyway your mapping look good, your story is also good.

Good luck on your project~~~

Not to worry just expand your imagination as farther as you could, and if you stuck at story try to read some story or maybe looking around or maybe sleeping (sometime you can get inspiration from your dream :P).

I happen to like to write too and my ideas pop out often when I'm not in front of my computer so I always write it down somewhere~

Yeah, I looove getting ideas from games, but they're always really hard to like... get in there, so I've decided to use... some story elements.

I feel like I'm sort of ripping off Tales of Graces here, with the flower meadow and Sophie stuff xD

Maybe I SHOULD try sleeping, but my dreams... sux. :(

Ohh I don't know if you don't tell me that Sophie name came from Tales of Graces :D

I said it's alright to get some ideas from game that you like but added with originality that you have and voila it'll be more awesome.

When first thought about my game project I have to decide what it is will be about so it'll not go stray from it and I develop my story from that story base.

I don't know though about how you write your story since everyone have their own methods of writing.

Don't worry I too don't have any experience at this since this is the first time I making a game, so simply said wish you luck ~

Hey, nice seeing youe project.

 

The story sounds fine so far. I guess having a hero wake up somewhere with lost memory is really cliché, but you could also call it classic. If it has interesting twists and turns later on, it is fine. (as long as he's not 'the chosen one')

Your characters also seem fine, while the main character is a bit of a platypus (fighter, magician, thief - skills, he can do it all?) But the side charcters sound fun and look sweet.

Your mapping is also decent, could use some more details, like small object, plants e.g. on the outdoor screens.

 

I'm looking forward to hear and see more of your game as you progress.

Have fun

Thank you for your feedback! :)

Reyson can fight and use magic, but he'll have to lean towards one area to get maximum efficiency. :3

 

I'll have to get working on that demo today xD

Thanks :)

This is actually getting kinda hard to make everything make sense... I'm planning on changing things up (a lot), as a few of my friends have said it's... weird.

 

Also, you can refer to this fantastic guide http://www.rpgmakervx.net/index.php?showtopic=54707

I just used a whole bunch of picture commands to make it look... like that! xD

If I had a penny for every RPG Maker game named Eternal then I would be a very rich man.

 

Anyways this project looks good. I am very impressed with your mapping skills. Good mappers always inspire me to make better maps.

I have had a chance to play though a little bit of this game, so far it's fun didn't get very far but I'm 400 miles away from home right now so naturally I couldn't continue playing quite yet but I'll continue on when I return home.

Thanks for the effort! :)

I hope you can finish soon and grant me some feedback! :D

 

Edit: Though there is a glitch that's gamebreaking about 85% through the demo (which cuts off anyways), so I'll be re-uploading a longer (slightly), more balanced and bug fixed (more so) demo today.

I ended up playing this for something close to 5 minutes before I forced myself to stop playing.

I really enjoy it thus far in fact you can clearly see the effort put into the game almost as soon as you begin.

 

Thus I'm more inclined to want to do this for you.

Thank you so much everyone! :)

 

DP3, I'd love it if you could do that! Though I'll want to fix a few problems and stuff before I release one that's better bug-tested! xD

It'll be up very soon!
