I tested the demo a little, but probably won't invest too much time until the finished product. In any case:

Good:
1. Story is fresh and sort of breaks away from the past two tales.
2. Lots of various loot.
3. I'm really digging the mapping abilities.

Bad:
1. The intro felt out of place.
2. Your writing needs a lot of proofreading. There's quite a bit of misspelled words and incorrect grammar that's making it hard to appreciate the story.
3. The combat tends to lean on the higher difficulty side, at least in the beginning. Case in point, once I had control of my character, he fought 1 spider that took like 5 or 6 hits before I could kill him. Meanwhile, this thin is packing like 60 to 80 hits on my character, and 400 some odd HP doesn't go far when that happens. Second time, 2 slimes killed me in about 2 hits. I had a club, a robe, and feathered hat, but they were hitting me for about 200 HP each. I'm thinking lower the enemy HP and strength until the player's got his feet wet, and consider that enemies really should only get harder based upon equipment you might have acquired and how many people are in your party.

As for the intro, it just felt rushed and confusing, and in my opinion wasn't written very well. Part of that was because you had to play it to experience it. My advice is to remove it and either incorporate the story of the first two games into the story of the third, or to see if there is a way to revive the first two games' dl links.

@Hyperkirby365

Thanks! I'm really happy you uploaded that. And what do you mean by nostalgic?

@amerkevicius

First of all, thanks for trying out the demo! I'm glad you enjoyed some parts of it. The grammar is being fixed and I don't know if I've mentioned that English isn't my first language but I'm trying my best though. The battles aren't that hard, they are pretty well ballanced and challenging in a good way. You have to remember to prepare yourself before you get out in battles. Go and buy some items like potions and antidoes and powerup your characters stats with increases and better equipment. And don't forget to use SKILLS. Evan isn't a warrior, he's a scientist and his skills are meant to be used wise. Keep that in mind before you go into any battles smile.gif

As for the intro, I'm thinking of using flashbacks from the previous CO games instead of just dialouge.

UPDATE

As for the game in general, I'm sorry for not keeping you guys updated so much. Things have happened IRL and I just started HS and I already have homeworks sleep.gif
But atleast! I got some updates now and they are:

-I've updated the second post in this thread, making it an UPDATE post where I will post my actions of the game and the progress that's being made AND MAYBE CAKES TOO!^^
-Updating the demo, a new version is soon to be released!
-Around 40% of the game is done! I am soon going to start off with the 4th floor! biggrin.gif
-People have been uploading videos of CO3! We have a boss battle compilation and aswell as 2 LPs of it(so happy^^)!

Videos

Here are the videos people have been uploading recently of CO3:

Misterfrodo17's Let's Try of the demo!


It's hillarious, watch it xD

The Let's Play of the Demo by Zachfoss!


Our first LP ever!

TheTheEmeraldboy100's awesome compilation of all the bosses from the demo!


Don't forget to get the Water Spell like guy did. It's located in a house in Perryn Village!



That's about it for now. See ya later community and peace out!

Here's a video for you guys that are interested, it shows the new titlescreen and I'd like to get some critism and if I should use it or my old one.

Sorry I haven't been able to give you that sprite. It was actually used in Relic Twidgers game so I'm not sure I can give you the resource. Ask him though!

Pretty good title screen, the tone would appear dark and foreboding. The music, however, is a bit too relaxing for what the game will entail. Perhaps something a tad more dark and edgy?

Sorry for not updating this thread in a while. I've been pretty busy and I've tried to focus more on the game's completion than the game's feedback, so sorry for that. Progress is going pretty good for the moment and I might be able to update with some new screens or videos soon!

As for replies.

@Earth: Thanks man! I might use it for the game smile.gif

@amerk: I'm pretty sure I'm gonna keep my old title but thanks for the tip. I haven't thought about some creepy music before... It could be good...

No problem because my game keeps getting rejected on the forums I suppose the only thing to do is help others.
And if game ever gets put up I'd still help smile.gif Also it's good to hear you're using the old title, I preferred it.

Also could you send me the project file for your game?
I don't want to hack it or anything It's just that
I know how to do the teleporting on the ship thing with B.
Oh and I'm not 100% sure but is the Faron Forest theme
from the actual game or is that Zelda Re:Orchastrated's version?

The demo is deleted, but since you had about 2 hours you could probably move it to project development. Also wanted to suggest moving to the new official forum, where it may garner more feedback.

@Earth: Sending the whole game would take so much space. I think I can upload the maps and stuffs that the transfering takes place on. I got the transfer thing almost done pretty much but the player doesn't want to exit/enter vehicle during transfers and for some reason, I always have to open up my menu before pressing the button to transfer. I'll PM you the link soon and thank you so much for your help! biggrin.gif

@Amerk, I even made an updated version of the demo and since mediafire is down(or whatever site I used) I guess I can reupload the demo. Yeah you're right. I'm even more than halfway through the game pretty much and I don't know how long it is but it's definetly over 5 hours of gameplay! I'll ask the mods to put this in development and I should also make a thread in RMN. I think it's one of the biggest and I like that site cause you can see how many who has downloaded the demo and do a lot more stuffs to make your game glow! If you know anymore sites then please feel free to tell me cause I really want as many people as I can to find out about this game. It's definetly worth playing, FREE and one of the better RPG Maker games IMO smile.gif

Thanks for feedback everyone and sorry again for late responding! I'll get a new cellphone soon with touch which will allow me to be more active here smile.gif

@Earth: It's a great sprite but I think I'll stick with the one I have. I personally like having the bosses a bit bigger then the characters.

Deck, Near the sail, etc?
