Title: Project Heaven (complete)
Post by: zeru on September 27, 2017, 09:42:01 PM
Hey guys,
A long time ago I decided to make a hobby game to gain experience in game making and here's the result.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/m289oh72c7il96b/Final%20Story%20III%200.75.zip?dl=0

Story Description
Zeto, a misanthrope with no hope for the world, is forced to undertake a journey to keep himself alive with his varied companions.
Across his journey, Zeto will meet new friends, discover new enemies, and experience great loss. Discover the mystery of the world that surrounds him... Watch this story unfold before your eyes as a result of your decisions. Does Zeto want to save them at all? Whatever is done, the choice is yours…

“I hate people.
They just care about themselves.
Sometimes I wish they didn’t exist.
I dislike this world.
I just want a world for myself…”


Characters

Zeto
(http://puu.sh/7epxv.png)
A total and utter misanthropist, his repeated pessimism is a telling trait of his. Apathetic in many regards and at times complaining of his unorthodox fate of a hero, his personality shines when leading others. For some mysterious reason he loves milk tea. Zeto is the most dynamic character in the story.

Luna
(http://puu.sh/7epDM.png)
Foil to Zeto, Luna is effervescent, flighty, and at times nonsensical. She is extremely energetic about all she puts her mind to, and is quite pushy at times. Her repeated energy and naïveté is a repeated personality trait, as is shown in dialogues with the haughty Evelyn.

Aria
(http://puu.sh/7eqhT.png)
With her head in the clouds eternally, Aria is detracted from the world around her. Very rarely does she ever make sense, and she ignores people quite often to be in her own mind. She does not really mind anything, and does things on a whim without thinking of their implications, such as almost kissing Zeto to try and wake him up from a daze. She's also shown to like fruits and milk tea. Her aloofness makes her immune to Confusion.

Evelyn
(http://puu.sh/7epHL.png)
Haughty and very acerbic, Evelyn is blind but with her powers she can sense her surroundings. She at first represses her personality, but later shows herself to be very vain and self-absorbed. She seems to realize peoples' rejection of her personality, immediately believing that she would be expelled from the group the moment her personality was brought to light. She seems to harbor a friendship with Aria. Due to her natural blindness, she is immune to Blindness.

Klaire
(http://puu.sh/7epIM.png)
Belligerent and sometimes rash, Klaire is the quintessential idea of what appears to be a "gangster." However, at his core, most of his toughness is a façade and he truly appears to care for the well-being of his friends. He's a natural-born leader and fighter and believes firmly in the ideas of justice. He leads a group of gangsters who operate in Silver Rod City; however, this gang simply does kind things like helping old ladies or things of that ilk.

Ethan
(http://puu.sh/7epK9.png)
Somewhat silly and out-there, Ethan is a pure-blooded otaku. He uses internet shorthand and even emoticons when speaking in real life! He is shown to be a very laid-back character who never seems to take anything seriously. He serves as comic relief for the group and is usually the fastest to crack a joke.

Silvie
(http://puu.sh/7epKN.png)
Sweet and demure, Silvie is a kindhearted girl who tries her hardest for the people around her. She is mute, so she uses a sketchbook to communicate. As a result, her aptitude for drawing is very good. Not only can she draw very well, but also her cooking appears to be top-notch. She tries her best to not be a burden to her friends and never starts a fight or gets mad at anyone for any reason. Due to her inability to talk, she is immune to Silence.

Ellis
(http://puu.sh/7epLi.png)
Laconic and reserved, Ellis usually speaks very little. She provides little-to-no commentary for the majority of the game even when she is in the party, and merely tags along with Klaire's group for personal motives. She carries an aura of mystery around her as nobody really appears to try and force conversation out of her. Any sort of attempt communication is usually met with a cold denial.


Features

** Main storyline of over 25+ hours of gameplay
** ATB-RPG system
** Branching class paths
** Party switching
** Hundreds of skills with varied effects
** Gear crafting and enchanting
** Secret boss battles
** Varied number of endings. With only one true end.


Making this game has been a long journey for me, but I hope you guys will enjoy it as much as I did developing it. (Yes, the game is really long it took nearly four years)
A lot of the resources used do not belong to me. It all goes to their respective authors and games. (They're credited in game)
Also as a side note... I've always wanted this game to have it's own original artwork and music, it's possible to achieve it by replacing the current resources.
My problem is to find someone that would be interested to do it and show their own artwork/music on this game. Anyone got suggestions to find the chosen ones for this?   :)

Wow that looks really well put together! Though I will warn you people don't always like the 'many endings but one is true' path. ^^; What engine is this? it looks almost like ...XP but nobody uses that anymore. So is it VX or MV using XP resources maybe? I mean I can tell the characters are pulled from Maple Story in their battler and face sets but the map charas look like XP and the tilesets remind me of it...

It runs on XP.

OoO *Gives you a virtual fist bump* That is excellent work then! Does it work stand alone? I never did see how XP programs write their stand alone as it was the VX/MV of it's day and I couldn't buy it cause....yeah cost.

What exactly do you mean with stand alone?

Stand alone is a term in game making. Sometimes you need to set it when making a game so that player doesn't have to buy the mondo expensive or hard to find engine to pay. RM2K3 used to require this nifty Harmony DLL file for somebody without the engine to play the games but the Steam one now automatically adds it even if you don't make a game disc file.
