This really is something special! One of the more impressive demos that I've seen.
-huuuge amount of original assets!! it's amazing how much work was put into it. plenty of detail where most RPG Maker projects would just do what's easy.
-super cute presentation style. love the 2-frame jittery animations during full art cutscenes and battles
-relatable dialogue that's amusing without going full goofy comedy
-battles that exist for engagement and entertainment, rather than EXP progression or challenge.
The not as good:
-it's pretty hard to tell when you're supposed to push a key to advance certain full screen art scenes
-small text used for whispers is very hard to read
-I found the story very hard to follow, as it dumps a lot of characters and concepts into the player's lap very rapidly
-I didn't understand what the battle status effects did. If there was a place that explained it, I missed it completely.
Although I didn't fully grasp the story, the presentation and characters got me through it. The fact that it manages to be intriguing and entertaining even while being confusing is a testament to how good the art and presentation are!
On the whole, I really enjoyed playing this.
I liked how it started out simple, goofy, and seemingly pointless, but eventually went somewhere with its themes.
When the plot did the thing I was like :V
Overall, there were only a few letdowns.
The art that appears at the start of the postgame added a lot to the scene. If there were bits of fullscreen art and voice acting like that all throughout the game, it would really elevate the story to new heights.
I also found Destiny, Olly, and Barry to be completely pointless as characters. They didn't contribute anything to the story and didn't even add little interjections to important scenes. It felt like they weren't even there most of the time.
Thanks for making such a cool little RPG! Looking forward to what else you make.
Extracting from the .zip file ruins certain filenames. Unfortunately, the title screen music is one of them.
I was able to re-edit the filenames, but maybe you should edit the filenames and RPG Maker project before zipping
While the translation was far from perfect (and some textboxes occasionally were still in PTBR) I was able to enjoy it. I understood pretty much everything you were trying to say.
Looking forward to updates, future chapters, and general improvements!
it's hard to tell if various events are broken or what. it's very unclear about what's possible and what i'm supposed to be doing, and it seems unreasonably difficult and grindy without getting a 2nd party member
