After a long break, I have finally been inspired to work on this project again. Since it has been so long, I've decided to put up what I have done so you guys could critique it. I plan to have A LOT changed (such as tiles, menu layouts, portraits and a battle system changed to side-view). I want t make it better than it originally was (since this was practically my first VX game I ever made). I really appreciate it!

Story


During a time of peace, an all-powerful dragon descended into the realm. It destroyed multiple cities and devoured many. The dragon's influence caused the realm's people to turn to a new religion called "Dragonism". In exchange for peace, the dragon demanded a young girl to do as he commands until death. These young girls were referred as "Divas". The people obeyed his demands, however, they had other plans in mind. The Divas were the pillars of the plan and bind the dragon with songs. With the Divas, "peace" was maintained...until now.


Main Characters



Len
Being sheltered by his mother all his life, Len could be called a "Mamma's Boy". He hates to see his mother upset so doesn't try to disobey her. Len loves being adventurous and tries to explore the surrounding area when he gets the chance. He often spends his time with Miki in the town of Orlyn. Len is, however, unaware of his existing sister.



Ms. Kagamine
Mrs. Kagamine is the mother of the twins Len and Rin. She used to be very devoted to the church until one night, the Dragoon Guard (the church's personal army) took her daughter Rin away from her. It was after that moment, Mrs. Kagamine became bitter and unwilling to go to church regularly like she used to. She concealed the truth about Rin being Len's sister in order to avoid memories she wanted to forget.



Rin
Rin is a divine being known as a "Dragon Diva". As a baby her fate was sealed and she was taken away from her family as an infant. As she grew older, she replaced the last Diva who died. Her job was sing songs and dance for the dragon who held her captive. Rin now stays with the dragon, having a strong feeling of another half of her somewhere else in the world.

Kaito
Kaito is a traveling assassin that is part of the rising Resistance. He constantly goes to towns preaching the injustice of the Church and gathers information. His sister Kaiko and him live a hard life of poverty, it is only with the Resistance they can even afford half of the things they have. Kaito has a constant habit of just "knowing things".

Meiko
Meiko, who was once just a common villager, was given a commanding position in the Dragoon Guard (the church's personal army). Teto, who was the previous Diva, was one of Meiko's close friends. When she heard that Teto was chosen to become the next diva, Meiko swore she try her best to protect the nation just as she is protecting the nation from the dragon. After Teto's death, Meiko then assumed the position of lieutenant, hoping to keep her promise she made so long ago.

Gakupo
Gakupo is a great scholar of the capital. He has close relations with high officials of the court, making him someone of status. His father was also very well-known before he was killed for defying the church. However, the only thing that was left behind by his father was a book of his findings. Thoroughly against the state of the world, Gakupo joined the Resistance in order to bring an end to Dragonism.

Luka
Luka is the High Priestess of the Church. She is well known for her devotion to Dragonism and dares to execute anyone who is against the church. Back when Gakupo's father was still alive, Luka and Gakupo got along fondly. They even planned to get married. It was only after the father's death that Luka noticed Gakupo's true ideas. Luka, being one with the church, intensely disagreed with Gakupo and they went their separate ways.

Luki
Luki is Luka's twin brother. Just as his sister, he also holds a high position as High Priest. Luki is also in favor of Dragonism but does not approve of how Luka carries out her work. Being the more calm and collective half, Luki deals with the more important matters while Luka is more of the figurehead of the Church.

Miku
It is because of Miku that the Diva can never leave. (-the rest are spoilers-)

Minor Characters


Miki
Miki has known Len for as long as she can remember. Her outgoing attitude always cheers up anyone who surrounds her.

This looks pretty darn awesome. The story is good sounding and who doesnt like vocaloid?
The one issue is that I'm not really sure if your sprites mesh too well with your tiles, the sprites seem to small or bright
to go with the mack tiles.
Anyway Rin and Len are my fave vocaloids so im really exited to see how this goes.

P.S. you have one smexy title screen.

I completely agree with you. I had no idea what I was doing then xD; I'm defiantly going to change the tiles in the final version and even possibly learn how to do that parallax mapping.
And thank you!

Wow, I didn't think it was possible to make an rpg out of vocaloid...and the background setting actually fits!! This is awesome!

One question though, do you plan on inserting vocaloid songs?

Yup! The title screen (has part of the 2nd part of the synchronicity trilogy in it), when you see rin (the beginning of the 1st synchronicity trilogy) and the world map (the 1st song) already have the songs in it ^^

i played the demo and cant get even get out of town.. i mean, there are just no clues where to go to next, you just get surprised a cutscene happens.. you get to open a chest from every household.. oh, check again your tile passabilities like logs and plants.. convert all music to ogg to decrease size..

i thought that might be alittle confusing but i didnt want to make it overally awkward with having someone tell you what to do all the time. maybe i could make little cut scenes to kinda give you more to go on. im definably going to cut down on the chests too and fix the passabilities.

directions would be good.. i bought the lettuce and tomato, got home.. explored all the houses, found out i need to go to the bar next, found a delivery quest, got to the church cutscene, and then got stuck. i memorized the town quickly guessing where to go next.. everytime i went home, the mother would say "go play with your friend"..

the next place you're supposed to go would be tricky if i didn't have an event (i definably will add one in the full version). theres a house right of the shop you can go into, if you talk to the lady you'll know what to do next.
thanks for those other tips about lowering the demo size too. im trying to go through and fix that.

Oh my oh my, this is looking great XD the story sounds great. I love vocaloids. Also it seems you've got the design end done right too. Lovely.

But yeah, just one thing, the sprites clash with the tiles a little bit too much XD

Keep it up, merrea50. I'll be lurki- I mean, watching. XD
