Hello RMVX.net!!!

My latest project, a collaborative effort by a small team, is finally here. Some famous RMVX.net staff have significant contributions to this game:
Mithran: Lead Engineer. Wrote an epic array of custom scripts that made everything possible.
Lunarea+Celianna: See those steampunk tiles? Yep, those are indeed from the Lunarea and Celianna steampunk tile pack. They've been made into convenient tilesets for the purposes of mapping Skyborn.

Summary
Skyborn is a story-driven, steampunk game. Magic meets metal in this world, powered by coal, steam, and technology, with a backdrop of magic and myth. Steampunk is a setting with its roots in 19th century England, in the industrial and Victorian era, all adapted for modern times and used as its own fairly new genre of games, movies, and especially... outfits. Skyborn takes you into a fantastical journey, from gritty, industrial cityscapes, to beautiful ancient ruins, and even into a realm of pure magic.

Life under the rule of the winged Skyborn race isn't so bad for Claret Spencer, the star mechanic of an independent repair shop. She can patch up just about anything...but when a certain cravat-wearing customer turns her life upside-down, she finds herself pulled into an epic, city-wide conflict that's going to take a lot more than elbow grease to fix!

Features
-The focus of the game is a mostly light-hearted adventure. The character interactions, atmosphere, and story serve as the engine for the experience.
-Full-sized busts used in character dialogues. Full array of expressions as well, really brings the exposition to life.
-Mouse and menu bar. Thanks to the masterful work of rpgmakervx.net's Mithran, the mouse is leaps and bounds ahead of any previous iteration. It has easy navigation, easy clicking, and is fully capable of navigating through the menus intuitively and quickly.
-Threat, tanking, and CT systems make for a more tactical, streamlined combat system.
-No random battles. All encounters, other than scripted sequences, are visible on the map, and for the most part, easy to avoid.
-Exploration nodes! You can level up adequately, simply by collecting exploration nodes. They will grant xp/levels and can be found in the nooks and crannies of the world.
-Mining, crafting, and augmenting. Mine ore, take it to a forge. Turn it into a piece of armor. Then, take that armor and further customize and enhance it with a magical augment. Augments can be overridden without losing the piece of equipment, but it destroys the augment item itself.
-Battle retry. No automatic game over upon losing. Hard to lose anyway, without setting it on "hard" difficulty, the setting tailored for veteran RPG players.

Hey, you're back!
Deadly Sin was good enough, but now you've got a steampunk game!
I'm seeing a lot of those steampunk tiles by Celianna and Lunarea!

@Kuku:
It's not free. Harmonic bought a license from us. smile.gif

@harmonic:
The music is excellent! Really great choices. Played for about 10 minutes, and I'm going back to playing after dinner. Great job on mapping, and stellar art, too.
I will let you know more after playing again.

THis looks so frecking awesome; totally looking into buying it when I have fifteen bucks to blow, for now, I'll play free trial.

What's the difference between the trial and the full, BTW? If I can ask?

First when I tried to download the demo, it caused my browser to crash.

Then when downloaded it was flagged as a virus straight away. I ignored it and my computer went on the blitz. Now I got to try and fix it. :/

This sounds pretty serious. I obviously didn't put a virus in the game, but something is very wrong. I will look into this as fast as possible.

Lemme guess: You have Norton antivirus, right? One of the new versions of Norton has this problem with EXE files like the installer here. It's not a bad file, it's a bad antivirus. I suggest switching to a free AV, Avast! is the one I use and is recommended highly by professionals.

I actually found out that the installation software I was using was causing the problem. I have since fixed that problem and the download shouldn't set off any flags.

Very amazing and professional! I like the story and the character portraits. Not to mention the classical battle system. Threat is also a nice idea.

Just out of curiousity, how much money have you been making as a result of these games?

I realize you put a ton of work into these games and I'm wondering if its really been worth the effort or if you haven't been making that much money.

Also, have you ever thought of making a console game or something even more commercial (as in, something you might buy in stores). Your art is fantastic and so is your writing, I think with a proper team of programmers and whatnot you could have a chance of creating a game for the DS or something cool like that.

Do you take game design courses in college or anything?

I'm just really curious because your games just look so good compared to the average game that goes through here.
