Thought I would pop in to say that I finished the first version of the script today. It will need a few passes for sure, but it is at least a skeleton :)

What script is that? The story script? Or some coding script?

The character dialogue. Broked is tackling the coding/engine.

Hey guys. Just dropped in to check on the community project. What's the status ? How much longer do we all have to wait for a finer version ?

As soon battle 2 is done, we'll have an update but probably not to the public. It hasn't been talked about a ton but I certainly want to leave most of what we do as a surprise :)

Eventually the demo will be updated though!

Hot Damn!
My first time back to the SC, and here I find this!
This is damn amazing, and I cannot wait for the full release.

If needed, I am a writer, and musician, though an amateur at making music.
I could help with the story, or try to compose some music for it. I already have a few songs that need a project to go to. Though, a couple may not fit so much. You probably want only instrumental, and a couple of mine have softcore dubstep.

{Plus also, I have no life, aside from school :damnit: }
{So I can put in a good amount of time~}

Anyways, this is awesome, and I can't wait for it to be finished!

I've added you to the group to get access into the sub-forum. Take a look around and see where you would like to contribute. We definitely need music and it would be nice for someone to review my script :) Just let us know!

It's been nearly a year since we launched this demo. I figured I should make a public announcement regarding our progress.

This year has largely been an engine, planning and mechanics-focused one. A lot has gone on under the hood of the development tools so that development going forward will be simpler, more efficient, and less like busywork. A lot of the game mechanics, such as spells, elements, character stat growths have been hammered out to at least serve as a springboard. The first draft of the script has also been fully completed. As such, actual game content hasn't developed overly far beyond what was in the demo.

A number of key decisions have been made that have also had an impact: Corsair and the team decided that we wanted smoother animations for the battle assets. To give you all an example of what we're aiming for, here are a few images to showcase what Corsair has been working on.

Here are the original 3 heroes, with new smooth animations:

Image Image Image

And here is a comparison of Olivia, original animation vs new:

Image Image

There are many more frames of animation involved for this, and converting them all has been - and will continue to be - no mean feat. But I think you'll all agree that the improved look will be worth it.


So we're not giving up, and the project is very much alive. And we have had some progress, content-wise. Broked has designed a rough scene following the events of battle 1, and the basics of battle 2 are also in there. They need a bit more refining, and once we're happy with the state of it, we'll release a second pre-alpha demo. I had hoped to wait until chapter one was completed, but it's been nearly a year, and you've been very patient as it is - you guys deserve it. Hopefully, all of the under-the-hood developments will mean that future updates beyond the next one will be more prompt.

I absolutely love the new sprites, and I'm sure it's been noticed, but...there's one tiny rogue black pixel in the bottom-right of Sharna's block animation. Just off the corner of her robe.

What you see there is not a 100% final state. Before any major updates, I am going to comb over any existing sprites and take care of little issues like that as they crop up.

I plan on using this as a portfolio of sorts.

I really should come here more often. This was a nice demo, the opening reminded me of Shining Force Gaiden 1; the animations are smooth; the music was nice; the color tones are reminiscent to the original Shining Force and the portraits were very well drawn.

I hope to see more. :thumbsup:
