Beta branch update

Hi all,
in addition of having the game in a 66% discount this week, I've also uploaded a beta version for anyone wanting to test it.
It uses new libraries of my framework, so should run faster and resolve some compatibility problems.
The game itself wasn't changed, so if was working fine for you before, no need to try the beta.

To test the beta you need to right-click on the game name in library and then in the BETAS tab choose to opt-in for the beta version.

If anyone tries it I'm interested to know if the achievements on the Windows/Mac version still works :) thanks

Quite an enjoyable RPG with a good mix of story, party and skill management, and exploration. If you like the look of the screenshots, I think you will like this game.

+Main character customization including gender and class/skill specialties
+Variety of characters to include in your party, customize all their skills on leveling
+Choose and upgrade weapons, armor, and items for all party members
+Story and side quests are well done, rewards for exploring
+Battles are fun and some challenging, requring varying tactics, psionics add more depth
+Events allow options for completing tasks/quests based on skills
+Save/load anywhere, at any time

-No voiced dialogue outside battles
-Not a wide range of available weapons/armor for most the game
-Save anywhere makes it all too easy to avoid any negative outcomes for choices
-All skills are known (but not developed) for all characters, no new skills appear with levels
-Combat/non-psionic classes don't have their own special skills

The music is quite good. The art is good enough. That's all.

The story is not bad by itself. But the writing is terrible for a visual novel. Careless, full of inconsistencies, too conceited on the player. Absolutely below average. And I'm a sucker for visual novels.

The RPG part is a bit dull. The normal difficulty is adjusted to force you into grind every map, and can get a bit over the line sometimes. With the DLC you get an enormeus variety of weapons with random names, making them even harder to compare and choose. Being most of them not better than the ones you get through history, they mostly add clutter.

In the end, I can not recommend the game. There are plethora of other VN much better than this one, and many are free. I also find the RPG part too weak, too, or at least not satisfying enough to justify a recommendation.

You may have seen the "hours played" counter and think it is too low. I got the game in a bundle and played the DRM version. Seeing the game has trading cards I may try to get the alternate arc and romance option I didn't care about the first time I played.

10/10 Would get steam cards again.

Addictive game, multiple routes, able to back track. Great story, interesting development. Still wish Lafleur was bi. Nonetheless wonderful game, you buy it, you'll be playing it for a bit. Feels great for a Vn with Rpg aspects similiar to science girls, sunrider, and a few other VNs and Rpgs you've seen here. This piece of work goes in quite the depth similiar to Loren the Amazon Princess. Still very great. Rating 9/10. Reason is I just kind of hate the inventory gui. It sets the new guys who haven't played something like this off, no sorting order, has to be manual, also comparison are confusing if they don't know how to identify them. Can't tell you how many times I was looking at a weapon to double check it's stats and my armor too. I didn't want to die out there. Still great game, highly replayable for a few reasons.

Pretty good game, though a bit short. Decent story, but a fun tactical combat system, interesting loot, and rewards for investing in out of combat skills.

That said, it gets trivially easy by the end of the game. I only got hit once in the entire final boss fight.

There are game genres wherein terrible writing is acceptable. Pure RPGs, which thrive on story at the expense of almost all else, are not among them. While the combat gameplay is passable, the writing is beyond bad, heaping contrivance upon awkward shoe-in on top of nigh-endless obsequeious player-praising that would make an Elder Scrolls writer blush. Everyone is a dramatic charicature of a person, /everyone/. This is not the grand arena, you are not the chosen one, there is no evil empire, and this game most definitely does not smell like incense. Give it a pass at anything even remotely like full purchase price.

To be quite honest, this isn't one of WinterWolves' better games. I enjoyed it, but I also was increasingly frustrated by it.

It's an older-style RPG, like another of their games, Loren, but with a bit of the mindless dungeon-crawler aspect. As much as I enjoy dungeon-crawlers, this game managed to drag through some of them. You're supposed to search through the desert to "find" specific items needed to continue with the plot, but your searches can turn up random items or monsters, which you can flee (when possible), or fight.

Sometimes, however, the battles seemed overpowered, and there isn't as much that grinding to help. You get most of your items from the supply room on the ship, so you don't get to fight and earn money to purchase your own supplies. Most of the higher items come as you fight and raise up, which I found more difficult to do than in their other games.

While this game does have its otome/visual novel elements, they do take a large back-seat to the game. It doesn't have as large of a choice pool for potential partners, if that's your cup of tea, and I found the scenes to be more amusing (if often shorter) in Loren than I did in PS.

That said, I enjoyed the game more or less, but I don't believe I'll be replaying it, and I'm glad I got it for 50% off. I'd recommend it, I suppose, if you enjoy old-style RPGs, and have some time to kill, but otherwise, it's probably not for you.

I tried to like this game I really did. It seems like there is a dynamic skill and character development at your first glance but it quickly wears off as you can save at literally any time during both conversations and battle. This means you cans save for random dice roll percentile skill checks (given like 22% chance of success) and you can bump each party member in 1 skill and since you have your entire huge party available for most tasks you always succed. Talking to your party hurts me physically as most of the other party members (soldiers) in the game have high school kid conversations. I ended up nearly maxxing charisma to only use it two or three times the entire game. The game appears and plays to be a high class flash game from a website not so much a game worth $20.

I am a big fan of games like Planescape Torment, Fallout, Shadowrun and Age of Decadence so story really matters to me, and with a game which has combat in which you can just click through you need meaningful conversations to happen.

The weak dialogue and character interactions really disappoint because the plot was quite interesting albeit extremely short but the immersion is too easily broken with your character stammering and getting embarrassed like a kid about to have sex for the first time all the while everyone praising your magnificent efforts.

Worse part is I'm likely gonna finish the game just so my character can get laid by sexy female character with the last name "Fox". Also the females have a permanent blush tone to their face and with the character writing it seems like a dating simulator with RPG combat elements to advance the storyline.

5.5/10 on completion.

To be fair, I haven't been playing a lot of the story. This did take a lot of time though.

The story seems to be OK, but filled with a bit too many stock plot "twists" to be really interesting. For a cheapish game, I can live with it. Dialogs are simple and rather... dull. You are presented with a block of text, follwed by another block of text and so on. Once the talking is done, you're presented with a few options (which you can repeat untill you hit the magic "stop talking" button). So far, I've found very few real dialog options.

Dialog does affect relationships from time to time, but just like too many other "RPGs" you often have no idea what the effects will be; when allowing my party to drink while gathering information, my relations with the super soldier party's alcohols is reduced.

The combat is typical for it's genre -- your party goes in order and get a few options to attack the enemy. The enemy then goes in order in the same style, untill either side is defeated. XP appears to rewarded on a kill basis -- when a party member finishes an enemy that person gets all the XP from the enemy.

Combat difficulty appears to scale much faster than your characters do. So far, I've gotten 1 level on my main character (by manageing damage so he could get more kills). In the meantime the enemies have gone from doing about 5 damage per attack to about 20 damage per attack and hit points have gone from 40ish to 300ish.

If you want to have level your main character fast, go for scout -- accuracy is the most important thing when dealing damage and scouts, at equal skill level, will be significantly better at hitting enemies, while doing roughly equal damage (that is, more damage) than soldiers or guardians.

On top of the poor combat and the bad writing, the game's performance is appauling. On a 2.8 GHz CPU the UI is sluggish, animations choppy and picking dialog options have delays. Combat is equally slow. The only part of the game which does not have extremly bad perfomance is text rendering, which is a big help, since you'll be skipping most of it anyway.

Overall, I cannot recommend this game. The balance of the game is really poor and the story simply doesn't make up for the rubbish combat.

I picked up this game after playing "Loren-The Amazon Princess," which is by the same company. I liked "Loren" a lot (except there was a ton of purple prose when it came to the in-game romances and a few of the romances felt creepy/abusive) for the mixture of story and very oldschool game mechanics.

The difference between "Loren" and "Planet Stronghold" is pretty much they emphasized different things. "Loren" developed the relationships and romances to a huge degree - the romances didn't just happen, the player had to seek them out, but had minimal game mechanics.... "Planet Stronghold" has minimal romances and an implausible story (put the cadet in charge of a war because he has a familiar last name?) and really good (though oldschool) game mechanics.

The aggro system in "Planet Stronghold" is AWESOME. You can instantly tell which one of your group is ♥♥♥♥ing off the mobs the most by glancing down at their meter, and comparing it to the other group members. Best system for aggro control I've ever played, in any game.

This is a solid game to play if you're bored and if it's on sale. I did almost 19 hours on it.

It's basically an indie Mass Effect, except with turn-based RPG combat instead of a shooter. It definitely lacks polish, but I loved the hours I spent on this game. Fun!

This was terrible beyond the threshold of standard bad for a westernime visual novel/RPG, rushing it right past ''terrible but nevertheless enjoyable and I have brought shame upon my house for even thinking as such and may never feel clean again'' territory and into just plain bad territory. The battle mechanics would be interesting were the whole aspect of battling/etc not a complete grind set out to artificially inflate the length of an otherwise abruptly short game. Add that to a substandard story and irritatingly shallow and flip-floppy protagonist templates and it equals the chore this game is to get through.

I can't say I really enjoyed playing this game. It seemed good at first, but the more I played, the more mind numbing, tedious and boring it became. I thought it was going to be good because it added a social element to a typical RPG. However, this game is nowhere near as good as the likes of Persona or Fire Emblem: Awakening. The social aspect is limited to making simple choices between two options which either impress or irritate the other characters in the game. Additionally, a lot of the choices look as though you're going to irritate the person you're talking to either way, which I personally don't like.

Yet, this isn't the only problem I found with the game. The equipment you have is fairly simple and there are only two ways to obtain more. Recycle your old gear for scrap metal and build new equipment with it or find it on quests. To find new equipment on quests is not efficient as you have several crew members who all need their own equipment and the quests yield nowhere near the amount needed. As for the recycling method, the amount of scrap metal needed is far too great (from my experience).

Finally, I find the combat to be very repetitive. A lot of the enemies are extremely powerful and take a lot of effort to take down. This results in you needing to go through long battles on a regular basis doing the exact same moves and praying luck is in your favour, since you really need a lot of luck in this game. It wouldn't be so bad if there were ways to grind against some weaker enemies, but as of yet, I have not found a single place where I can grind against waves of weaker enemies to train my team up.

All in all, it's not enjoyable for me. Especially since I feel the need to rest to restore my HP/PP at the end of every single battle. It makes me feel cheap for doing so but I know that if I don't, I'll end up dying in the next one. If you do decide to play this game, I have only one bit of advice for you. Save often. The autosave feature is buggy. I know I've lost some good progress just because the autosave deleted my save files out of nowhere.

Nice game, overall rating ot 7/10.
For me, the battle system in a style somewhat reminiscent of old GBA Pokemon games. The romance sub-plots are reasonably engaging, though they could certainly have added more interaction post the romance scene.

I always play the female character in RPGs and take the yuri/lesbian relationship option(s) if available; character development isn't lacking, but I'd prefer it to be better fleshed out.

Hope to see this, and the return of the characters (esp. Michelle, Lisa's love~) in the sequel, if there's one in the works.

I have found this game to be very enjoyable. It is like reading a good action/adventure/scifi/fantasy book with a touch of romance. It is like a choose your own adventure story mostly point and click but still very enjoyable. not for those who do not like story based games and are only looking for shootings. Depending on the options you choose it is what you get go back play again with different choise.

Written by teenagers apparently. Dialog and story is so cliched and ackward that I couldn't play past the tutorial. If you want something serious don't buy this game. Also why every graphical novel must have romance subplots? Play meet&f**k games if you want bad p0rn.

I didn't play much beyond the introduction. The writing felt incredibly cliche from the very beginning, characters had little nuance, backstory and lore were introduced in the most heavy handed way possible, and I had little idea what was motivating either myself or other characters. The gameplay elements seemed fine and the art isn't offensive but that's about all I can say in Planet Stronghold's favor.

Really disappointed, had high hopes but combat is frustrating, you go from fights which are cakewalks to fights which are almost impossible or actually impossible, the writing is mediocre and there are just lots of ♥♥♥♥ling little problems with it. Very ddisappointed, glad I didn't pay full price for it.

A glorified browser game where the combat SUCKS. As I write this, the game sells for $19, but I think it is barely worth $3. In combat, I didn't really feel like I had much room to maneuver. The only real strategy is to decide which enemy to attack first. I didn't even get to name my character. I have played free adult games that were funner than this.... And free.
