Developer's Note

What kind of RPG is this? Who's it for?



The goal is to make this a classic JRPG that's reminiscent of the 90's. At first, it was tough for me the grasp the concept of what that really meant. I tried to implement too many things, thinking that I'd be doing the player a disservice by not offering the complex features you'd see from quite a few RPG Maker games. After years of development, I realized that going this route ruined the player experience. The features weren't cohesive, and I was trying to satisfy too many types of gamers.

Since then, I've learned to keep the scope as narrow as possible. I want a fast paced game with clear and concise features. Something that's easy to pick up and play without feeling overwhelmed. This is a game that's made for people with families and jobs who don't have a lot of time on their hands, but still want that nostalgic experience without having to put in 20+ hours.

If you're looking for elaborate crafting/equipment/class/day & night/hunger/cooking/relationship features. You won't get that here. What I can say is... I'm confident that you'll get simple enjoyment out of the few features I have implemented, as they've been studied and tested thoroughly for an optimized experience.

Thanks for checking out the game, and I hope you enjoy it!

Synopsis

A raid on the region of Olund comes to a halt when Ziedrick, Captain of the Caledrian army, finds out that he was manipulated by Emperor Rofel to lead the attack. His decision to spare the lives of the Olund rebels sets a plan in motion that ushers in an age of peace. Five years later, Ziedrick would pass away, leaving his son Oswyn to carry on his legacy.

In an attempt to live up to his father's image, Oswyn quickly rose among the ranks of the Caledrian Army. But with the war coming to a close, he begins to feel a lack of purpose and questions whether or not he should carve his own path to find himself.

Glad to hear it! Also, I really appreciate the comment. Thanks!

Great classic feeling RPG! The immersive story and outstanding character development kept me very interested! The battle system and equipment are not complicated. No sharp learning curve. My biggest complaint is that it isn't long enough! Keep up the great work!

como se descargan los juegos desde este tipo de pagina

El juego se está actualizando. No hay descarga disponible en este momento. Lo siento.

It is wonderful RPG!

Who made your title theme?

A pixel artist who goes by the name of ConkerMich. His website is linked HERE. He works fast and is great with responding to messages.

Oh I was meaning to say who made your title music lol my bad.

That's more my fault for misunderstanding. lol. A lot of the music in the game (including the title theme) is made by Phil Hamilton. He has some game soundtracks for sale HERE.

Can his songs be used for commercial games?

Only one of the soundtracks. It can be purchased at the RPGMakerweb store.

Great game so far - it does crash occasionally, but I'm not sure exactly why. 

Glad you enjoyed it! I believe I've found the cause of the crashing issue. There was a memory leak due to some faulty code. Should be fixed with a new version tomorrow. Thanks!
