Battle Mechanics, New Face Portraits, and Animations

Hello everyone,

This update is going to focus a lot on the battle mechanics and what changes to expect. We look forward to any comments and critique as this will deviate in a lot of ways from the previous system and the game as a whole. We have been holding off showing a lot of these features as we wanted to make sure it was tested and functional and most of all fun.Before we get into that, we just want to acknowledge just how long it is taking to recreate this. Admittedly, it is taking a lot longer than we anticipated. This is mainly due to trying to create a perfect base for the rest of the chapter to build on. The battle system, the map systems, all of the menus had to be redone. A lot of the base is finished and a lot of the game is playable, but there's still more that needs to be done. So let's move on to the update! :D

Making An Engaging Battle System

Getting this thing done has been the most pain staking part of this process. The biggest obstacles we faced was getting the right people on the job. Now we have gotten the system to a presentable state and we are ready to go.The previous system suffered from repetitive turn based game play. In most JRPGs there is usually a single way to fight enemies in your standard system. One of our main goals that we had when we started this game was to have make our system into something the player wanted to do. We wanted battles to be just as engaging as the story and persuade you to enter combat.



One of the ways that we initially started with which is already in the previous version of the game was the inclusion of combo system. We have since upgraded that system by making it faster smoother and more engaging.



While using the combo system (your basic attack), the enemy now has a chance to knock you out of your combo string by performing a riposte. These happen randomly with multiple variations on occurrence based on what you are fighting.

Active Defense



We have also included a defense system in which players have the option to avoid enemy melee attacks manually. This will use some of your AP bar(previously known as the RG bar) and will completely negate the damage that would effect the character.

The Grid


The grid in place is what we referred to as positioning in the past. Where you are on the battlefield will effect what your opponent does. With the inclusion of obstacles and terrain, it makes for some very interesting scenarios. Again, the way that your opponent may react to an obstacle or terrain will change, especially between creatures and people.We feel like these mechanics will not only be a lot of fun, but they will change the way you look at the characters you play, as well as the enemies you face. Strategy will play a big role in this updated system.

Face Portraits

Since we increased our resolution, we noticed our older face portraits were not going to be as noticeable as they were before. We needed something much bigger. We had already started the process of adding emotions to the character portraits and with help from our artist, Ricky, we had that fully realized!



We also took another look at some of the scenes and decided that they were a bit too static for what was going on so we added a little more movement so that they were more organic.

In Conclusion

We hope you all enjoyed this update! We are constantly working on this game. We rarely show anything unless we have had significant progress. We are trucking along and we are still extremely dedicated. We do not have a solid release date as of yet for the engine update or episode 2, but as soon as we do we will let you know. Thanks for taking a look at our latest update. We look forward to showing more soon!

Please let us know if you have any questions, comments, suggestions, anything. We'd love to hear back from you all! :D

End of the year update

Last year, it was around this time of the year that we released our first game on Steam. We are dedicated to providing a greater experience going forward. To let everyone know exactly what has been going on with the project, here is a detailed list of the changes and advancements we have made with this project so far. We look forward to both your feedback and critique of what we have as we climb towards getting out a beta as well as the official release.

Presentation and Menus

One of the biggest critiques that we had experienced was the resolution of the game.We have increased it from 640x480 to 1280x720. This gives the game a much more crisp look as well as more room for menus and text.



In our previous version, when we put the game in full screen it left the game stretched. Pixels were not as crisp and it seemed to make the game look bad to some who would prefer to play on that setting.

Main Menu

The main menu now features much more of the characters portraits. Due to the new positioning system there is also a part of the menu where you can modify the way your party is placed during battle.



The item menu is a little different here. We wanted to make the most out of the amount of space we had, so now there are now three columns. This is a great addition as you can acquire many items at one time in the game and having the extra space as well as the sorting options will make finding the item you need much easier.

<figure>

The status menu has some notable changes as well. You can cycle through stats to get a quick view of status resistances and basic attributes. We have also decided to get rid of MP levels so that there is only one MP bar for all skills.

<figure>

The skill menu has also gone through some notable changes. The combo finishers and skills are on two different windows. Also when you upgrade, there is a separate window which gives you more insight into what the upgrade/gaining of that ability will be able to do. The visuals of this screen are not finished, but it is functional.



Controls and Key Config

Another feature we looked into when we were upgrading the engine was the ability to change your key configuration. We had some players who were interested in this feature and we wanted to make sure that it was addressed. Unlike the previous version, controller and keyboard operation will work together.



This is not the final look. We intend to modify it a bit more. It is fully functional and shifts to gamepad controls once it is plugged in.

Backer Rewards

Although the game is released we still have some backer content that needs to be fulfilled. The soundtrack has been slowed since the last time we talked, but there are at least 8 songs that need to be done/redone and so far we have not been able to get that done. We have contemplated releasing what we have, but we don't feel like it is complete enough for commercial release.

Backer Character: Percyl

Another backer boss character, Percyl by HolyHeaven, has gotten the Demon's Revenge treatment. He is a young penguin pirate who can travel through different worlds in his boat, this time he has docked on Hasphal.



News On Mioni Saga

We have talked about our in-between project called The Mioni Saga which features an important character from episode 2. We have gotten most of the writing and some sprite work done, but a few aspects in the main system have to be addressed. We have most of that done and we will move onto that as soon as we get the episode 1 update done.In Mioni's saga, we feature a very important character to the world of Hasphal known as Hydorn. He was mentioned a few times in episode one, but we really dive into his origins and the impact he has made on the planet through Mioni's journey.



Updated Tools

Tools are now much faster and varied. Sen's waterball is now capable of grabbing and opening items like chest that may seem hard to reach on maps. Jagen's scythe now cuts more area at once. I really did not like the animations that were there previously and I am far more satisfied with the updated version.





Marketing and Release

I mention this as it is probably the most important aspect of our process. We had done a very poor job on the initial release as far as getting the news and generating interest for our game's Steam release. We do not want to end up in the same position as we were before with giving a release date and not fulfilling that promise. For now we will continue to update you with information as we progress in regards to both the future episodes and content released as we move forward.



With that being said, we have a much stronger campaign which involves me doing a lot of work like I did with our crowdfunding campaign. We will also be working with a PR company in order to supplement our efforts, but we are going for some re-branding and trying to resurrect our initial efforts.

More Enemies and More Animations



I mentioned in a previous update that we were adding more basic animations to characters in order to make them move more cohesive with the grid system. We also increased the amount of enemies that will be in episode 1. There was a feature (day/night enemies/skills) in the game that we did not get a chance to implement as well as a major plot point in the game where a major battle was supposed to appear. All of these things will be featured in the update as well as the interactive objects in battle.



These are four of the added enemies in the game. We also will be updating a few with  more animations and skills to use on the grid. There will also be the addition of a couple of bosses.

Conclusion

We are working very hard to get this out to everyone. We are very close to getting a tech demo and beta out. We would love to give an exact date  for the release, but there are somethings that are out of our hands. As soon as we get the battle system stuff presentable we will have a better idea on when we can release and provide a date for it. We will feature the battle system in its own update as we have a lot to go over with it.

Thanks everyone for your continued support. We will have another update soon.
