I've implemented many of the changes highlighted by feedback in this small update. I have also put together an easy mode for those having trouble and am releasing both versions in one zip. Easy mode features more health, easier grinding and some of the tougher parts simplified. It was a quick set of edits i did because i need to compile a changelog of every coordinate i changed for the easy version. Because i may have to redo the changes later. The mirrors section has the new link you need. I heed all the feedback i recieve, so thanks for it. If it seems rushed, i admit it was a little. Mainly because i want an easy version for my nephews to check out. Also because this is like a trial run of "easy mode". What is likely is that the game will be available in both easy and normal modes every update.
Well it's been roughly a year, so i think it's about time i made a new demo of this. I'm releasing this demo mainly because theres already alot to look at and critique. From feedback, to critique to full bug reports, any help will be greatly appreciated. Me and my offline playtester Wayne combed the game many times for bugs and just seeing if things look right. He's as passionate about the game as i am and very much adores the characters. Everyone who has helped me with problems in the past is awesome.
First of all, this game is what i'd consider "pretty tough" so i have included the debug room in this release. Inside the debug room there are warps to various parts of the game, and various other things. Please make a reasonable attempt to play through areas legally before resorting to it. The weapons in the hack are intentionally flawed in the same way that castlevanias whip is intentionally flawed. The details for the debug room can be found below here, if needed.
If you arent cheating, dont enter the room in Mados bedroom, dont enter ANY of the door objects anywhere on the mountain quest (first quest with Mioko with you), These are warps, only for a last resort, and WILL cause bugs
[SPOILER]Only ever use the debug room if your very very stuck alright?
The door to it is at the very begining of the game in Mados bedroom. There are options to give you weapons, ammo and more max health. Even one to turn you into Mioko. The rest are warp doors, in order, left to right, corresponding to how far they will send you in game. Please note that warping to the dream sequence will trigger an autosave. Also there are warp doors at the begining of the mountain quest and further up the mountain. These will warp you to the rest of the areas.
Please note that using the debug room WILL cause bugs
Ok, this begins at the very begining of the final game, and ends in the room which has a boss based on Balrog two. This room is unfinished, so dont worry if thigns go wrong in there.
Onto the actual game. You control a Mimiga in a villiage of Mimigas who trains under an elder martial artist. This Master, has foreseen trouble in the villiages future and calls upon his two best students to look into it. The game involves travelling through your own dreams using "lucid stones" and uncovering what the threat on the villiage is. The antagonists are a band of discarded weapons from the war. Mimiga cyborgs leading the rest of the robots and machines into conflict with the Mimigas. At this point it's left ambiguous what they want and what thier problem is. To be revealed in coming demos.
Speaking of coming demos, i will always provide a save file up to the end of the last demo, so noone needs replay areas they have done. The save file will be the equivelent of 100% completion up to that point each time. Speaking of which, the game has a good ending and a bad ending. It's up to the player to figure out how to achieve the good one. And i'm planning on making it possible to obtain the good ending even by backtracking at the end of the game.
Here, have some screenshots.
Here is the easy and normal demo:
Please let me know if these go down. Well, i hope you enjoy the game. I'm sure it'll challenge most of you :3
