Wonderful reviews Neale and Dave! I'm really impressed by Reives' work, he's a brillant developer which main focus isn't make flow of cash but delivering the best of his passion and emotions. That's why he crafted such a magnificant jewel.

Keep going Reives! (p.s, it's Elder) You deserve all the recent success stories I've read everywhere :D

About the XBox port it's not impossible and I was also putting effort on this.

I strongly believe it's a wise pronouncement from RPG Fan.

Ok.. I am formally, sincerely apologizing for any offense caused by my remarks. I have edited the remark about Eternal Eden out of my post and I will not refer to it again. I sincerely regret putting it there, even in an attempt to try and garner some attention for my freeware game that would not be looked at twice beside a huge comerical game such as EE. But, that's passed now, and I am truly sorry for unintentionally offending people.

Now I urge you to play my game and forget it ever happened. I don't want to let an argument stand in the way of people playing my game.

Hi Dark Gaia, I personally wasn't offended that much, I just found it funny hehe. It's not needed to remove 'Eternal Eden' from your announcement, you can simply alter it to something like 'In the vein of Eternal Eden' or 'if you liked Eternal Eden you should definitely play Legionwood as it was made with the same engine.', etc.

Besides EE is not a huge commercial game, it's still living in the shadow even if it garnered some respect.

You're 16 years old, so don't worry it's normal that you may cause offence with some mistakes. I was arrogant too when I was younger (I'm 31 now), but I learned that staying humble bring better results long-term.

Don't worry about your game, keep working on it and more people will play it and share it with their friends if they love the experience.

From what I've played, Legionwood seemed to be really nice. Too bad it was ultra slow on my PC. So everyone should give it a try and hopefully give you some feedbacks.

(pardon my poor English)

Dark Gaia, I tried your game and from what I saw it definitely deserved to be featured on RRR, it's certainly better than a lot of projects I've tried out there.

Sadly I was forced to quit your game, it was taking too much RAM (or something like that, after all your game is over 100MB and it's only at chapter 3...). You weren't savvy with media. When I pressed the directional arrow or progressed through story dialogues my keyboard wasn't responsive at all because the game was too much heavy for my PC. I guess a powerful machine is needed to play your game.

I switched to Eternal Eden to make sure my PC was okay, and EE runned normally.

Anyone can be tempted to use MP3s in an RPG Maker game, but it’s the worst decision (at least if abused). RPG Maker is a nice tool but isn’t evolved enough for this type of media sadly.

Except this detail your game seems really nice! Keep going :)

Okay, I didn't mean to personally target you, but I am an egotisitcal person. Anyway, it is a dog eat dog industry, and I am entitled to my opinion. Sorry for any offense caused anyway.

Don't worry about your opinion I wasn't taking it as an offence. You just valued your game and it's nice. I just thought it was funny :)

Besides  you shouldn't abide to this dog-eat-dog philosophy since you're doing a freeware :) And even in the industry it's easier to survive with an altruist attitude especially as an indie developer. A good example, Amanda from Amanranthia, Damian (the guy from Laxius Force) and me are helping each other and it's truly making a 'huge' difference. That's certainly what allow us to survive.

OH, by the way, this game just became the Featured Project of RPG Revolution and was hailed as better than Eternal Eden.

Funny to hear that Eternal Eden has become the new object of rivalry to some people. :P

Besides I'm the guy who have made Eternal Eden. As far as I'm concerned I'm not trying to be better than anyone else. I had fun making Eternal Eden. That's the only thing that matter to me.

Your project look nice, I will try it tonight.

It was created using the same engine as Eternal Eden, but personally I feel that this game far outclasses it.

A bit arrogant, but I'm glad to be mentioned in your synopsis. Be nice and insert a hyperlink :P lol joking

but I'm really sick of storylines that make 'God' your enemy. FFT did it,

In that case Shadow Hearts 1 will upset you even more ;) The last boss is called ‘God’, and you actually crush ‘it’ (it was some kind of dreadful creature). It’s definitely not a game for religious people.

currently playing Digital Devil Saga. Overall, the game is awesome.

but I can't bear random encounter in this game! The frequency is too high.

Quote from: "Eusis"
Actually, as I seem to recall it Cloud was in his twenties - 21 if I'm remembering right. He was only an adolocent during his days in the military. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's the last FF to have had an adult main character. You're right though, the way they're used is more important than their actual age, but it's just very, very unusual to me when DQ1 started the japanese RPG back in... 1987 I believe. It's been nearly 20 years since then, and we're still with teenage heroes. Do most of the players from way back then prefer to be 'young at heart', or are the developers just that resistant to changing their stories? :P

Though I'll admit, it seems the older teenager character is better for the 'going on an adventure' tale than someone who's older. But I don't see why a hero in their early 20's wouldn't be just as good.

Well then if we think carefully about it there are not that many RPGs using young teenagers as lead. They’re simply looking young and healthy, that's all :)

Quote from: "KeeperX"
The average video game player is estimated to be 25-30 years of age.


Heh we should draw a list of all the RPGs wilt all the main characters, this way we’ll know if teenage characters are really invading RPGs.

Here are popular heroes that are certainly above 20;

Cloud from FFVII (now that you're mentioning it, he wasn’t a teenager)
Squall from FFVIII (he’s looking at the end of his teenage period to me)
Tidus from FFX
Yuri from Shadow Hearts
Fei from Xenogear
Shion from Xenosaga, a woman protagonist
Aya from Parasite Eve
Ash from Vagrant Story
Valkyrie from Valkyrie Profile, it was a woman protagonist
Digital Devil Saga, I never played it but the heroes seemed to be mature.
Calintz from Magna Carta, a virile travesty above all :P

In a strange way, a lot of silent protagonists are actually teenagers;

Crono from Chrono Trigger.
Serge from Chrono Cross.
Hero from Breath of Fire 3 (and probably the other episode of the series, I don’t remember)
Main hero from Dragon Quest VIII
Main hero from Suikoden
Hero from Dark Cloud

The other young characters are from series like “Tales of” or Grandia, or very manga-ish games.

Anyway I think too it would be nice to have a old protagonist someday.

For my part teenage heroes doesn’t really bother. I’m still very young in my heart :D It always depends the way they are exploited in the context of a game.

In my opinion Cloud and Squall were great adolescent protagonists and were used in a mature way in the context of the game.

The types of young heroes that don’t catch my attention are the ones from games like Tales of Symphonia or Grandia III. But those games are certainly designed to target a younger audience so they fit the context.

Back then Final Fantasy used older main characters. I'm not exactly sure, but I think Cecil from FFIV looked approximately 30 years old. Kain looked old too.

Shadow Hearts 1 & 2, Xenogear & Xenosaga have mature characters.
44  Media / Single-Player RPGs / Things you can’t bear in RPGs on: March 15, 2006, 10:40:03 PM
- whiny teenage protagonists that are hopelessly clueless

heh would you play a RPG if the main character was a fat aunt? :P
45  The Rest / General Discussions / All time favourite game characters. on: March 08, 2006, 05:42:07 AM
Tidus from Final Fantasy X - First off I liked his very charismatic personality. His presence was strong. He had good values and always tried to be of any help for other people. I enjoyed the fact that he was a sport celebrity, pretty cool for a RPG. Besides (nah I’m not gay) he was really good looking so I enjoyed playing the game when my sister wasn’t that far around and hear her good comments about the character heh :D

Yuri from Shadow Hearts – Yuri was a very hot character. He was rude, arrogant and sarcastic but anyway he was a nice guy always ready to protect his friends.

Citan from Xenogear – I liked very much this cultivated/educated character, always there to get Fei out of danger with his great knowledge.
