Big Changes (Free update!)

Hey, everybody!

Last BeNeVoLeNcE, here:


In the recent months, I've began working on Tales of the Elements 2C. The story's already written, the album is already recorded, and all of the new features and gameplay enhancements for 2C are already complete!

So, while working on those new features, I decided it would be a good idea to make all of the new features and gameplay balances available in FC as part of a FREE update!

This update's big because it's really taking all of the new ideas that will be used in 2C and completely giving FC a makeover with them.


Aside from some minor bug fixes--here's what's new:

In-depth (but completely optional) tutorials for important game features.
Eight (8) "special stages" (mini-games) to unlock special inspiration.
Voice grunts for dialogue from main characters as well as some NPCs.
Battle voiceovers for playable characters.
Breakable boxes, barrels, and chests with random item drops (replacing chests).

New splash screens before the title.
New title screen and new title screen music.
New windowskin for dialogue.
Updated sub menu.


Next up?

Finishing 2C!

Stay tuned....

Getting ready for the 2nd Chapter!

Hey, everyone!

Last BeNeVoLeNcE, here--

First off, I'd like to sincerely thank everyone who's supported this release as developing this game was a real "life achievement" for me to personally unlock. It was always a goal since I was young to get into game development and I never thought it would have been possible to develop games on my own. So, seriously, thank you all for your support! There's more to come!

But, that's not what this announcement is about--

I'm happy to reveal that Tales of the Elements - 2nd Chapter is currently in development! Actually, to be honest, it's been in-development for quite some time now!

You're probably wondering what you can look forward to seeing in 2nd Chapter and as I can't say too much just yet--I can share a few quick points:

- Tales of the Elements - 2nd Chapter is the second HALF of the story while FC was the first half. That means that when FC and 2C come together, you can enjoy the complete experience of the Tales of the Elements story!

- It goes without saying that there will be new music, new places, new equipment, new skills, & new characters!

- Just like before, the album will be released at the same time as the game.

Just recently, I put out an update for the game here on Steam in preparation for the 2nd half of the story.

The update has a number of adjustments ranging from not-so-big to pretty major. But, here are some notable things to keep in mind:

The levels in which characters learn skills have been readjusted to give the game a bit more balance, challenge, and most of all--to accommodate the 2nd Chapter. This means that characters will be learning some of their skills at higher levels than before. (Example: if DJ's were learning a skill at level 5 before, now they are learning that skill at level 14.)

I understand that this may come as a disappointment to some but I found that this was a better way to give time before characters learn all of their skills in the game--and this is all with a view of how long the game will be once the 2nd Chapter is added to the game. Besides that, it keeps players from being too overpowered towards the end of FC.

With that being said, this also means that some characters have NEW skills. Technically, most of these skills are meant to be learned in 2C. But, if you spend enough time in the unlockable dungeon (in FC), you MIGHT get to the point of leveling up enough to earn those skills!

Another notable change--There are now descriptions for EVERY skill in the game.

Some skill animations have been adjusted such as the animation for when the microphone blades hit enemies.

Some more changes: Snowberry's weapon was changed from "gloves" to "Drawing Pens." She can still use "gloves" but she starts off with a pen. Also, all of her skills have been renamed.

There have also been some visual updates to some of the maps as well as some minor bug fixes.


Myself, as well as the artists who contributed to both albums, and Randombeats Music are all excited to bring you Tales of the Elements 2nd Chapter!

Soon, we'll have more information on 2C's release but in the meantime--
stay tuned!
