Ugh, I got nowhere near enough done for this release. But, you guys have been really supportive of all this, so here I bring you the changes:
-The hero’s default name now picks out of a random list. “Ferdinand” was never meant to be the guy’s actual name, and was just a shout out to the most awesome Heartache 101 which is well worth your time to check out even if it doesn’t have any H.
-Certain names you can apply to the hero and Doll now have in-game effects. Good luck finding them all.
-A chest near the starting point lets you “test for content” or “test for balance”. Testing for content gives you a huge pile of money in the form of vendor trash, as well as items that let you advance time at will and full restore your party between battles.
-Certain location and character names have been changed. Amelia has been changed to Meline, so as to avoid confusion with Alina. The cities have been changed to Northmarket, Eastfort, Westcastle, Lumberhill and Southport, because I’m creative.
-While the Undead Assault quest remains unfinished, you can now visit the city in quest and see the pre-zombie assault version of it.
-There are two new harem girls to enslave, with ensuing sex scenes.
-Doll and Yamamaya now have completed relationship tracks.
-In Eastfort you can now purchase a condo for yourself to stay in while adventuring on the eastern side of the map. Also, the stables are now fully implemented and you can enjoy fast-traveling at need between Eastfort and Northmarket. And I just realized I forgot to remove that feature when doing the clock shop quest, so now you can cheat on that in case you’re allergic to XP.
-You can also purchase an additional storefront in Eastfort for Florine to expand her enterprise into.
-A whole pile of other, little things that you may or may not discover.
A number of things from my to-do list are incomplete. There is no hidden dungeon yet, by the way, so don’t bother looking.
Using the time turner will let you see the ragged edges of the game, which I have yet to expand into. So be aware there might be any number of strange bugs that come from advancing time so much.
Oh yeah, and if you don’t have it already, you’ll want to grab the run time package for RPG Maker VX Ace
The next update is scheduled for May 15th, so please be patient and stay tuned for more quests, girls, and goodness.
