Oh yeah, also as for the characters, there are:
-Princess from the Tower
There are also Kaoru, Shadows, citizens from Sophia’s city and Ringmaster, but these should go as ‘support’ characters, if I can say so.
Tower Princess being raped by a bunch of people/tentacles, leaving the choice to you.
Protagonist or Sophia x Milene would be quite arousing.
Maybe Sophia x Milene sharing a cup of tea together.
Regarding typos and grammar, I suggest carefully combing through all events of the game and correcting the errors.
Also, in Easy Mode, there is no little intuition hints that point you towards the places you find the World's End Diary, Salomon's Note and Note III.
Yeah, I've been thinking about adding these hints in next relase, as well as clues telling you where to go in -Birth- parts (these are usually obvious, but intuition feature should serve something more, than just leading player directly to the tower).
Gawd, I'm starting to think that this Intuition system is retarded. I mean - of course - it leads shows player where next crucial part is, but it's kinda like with driving car while using GPS - you turn off thinking. Instead I was thinking about just moving Map Room from street nr 10 onto street nr 1, so player could get map instantly. Also, as for substitute for Intuition I thought to perhaps make it kinda like in "The Path". There would be certain numbers (indicating streets where new clue can be found) appearing on the screen in somewhat random fashion, instead of just one number. Someone also suggested me to perhaps do random teleports onto streets where next clue is, but 1: it would be shitload of work, 2: it would render map pretty much useless (however in game it is mentioned that accuracy of this map isn't probabaly 100% certain).
Birth part is pretty much done (only one small thing needs to be done).
I haven't added complete ending sequences yet, but at least it is possible to tell where the game ends, as well as distinguish bad ending from not so bad ending and beginning of 3rd act.
I've changed Intuition system completely, making it less invasive and more helpful.

Wow. This game is turning out to be more amazing with each update. Keep up the good work!
Is the second TV event the last event of this current version? And is the white area with spikes the last Birth part of the current version?
Second TV is last event reachable in the city. Last event for Birth act is indeed this White Space, however it depends what you mean exactly. You have to find a certain character in this White Space, which will lead you to another sequence in this same world. To put it simply, game doesn't end on this White Space, but it is the final part of Birth chapter. After getting that event, you can go to the ending sequence, which - depending on certain circumstances - will lead you to either 3rd act, or bad ending.
Okay. I've explored the White Space for a while now, but all I've found is just space and some black spikes. Is there any help I can get when looking for this "certain character"?
Hm… technically that certain character only goes down - not in some random directions, so sooner or later you should find it. There is however a certain "shortcut" for how to find that character. Basically, when you enter that world, go considerably right until you won't notice two bigger spikes. After that go a little up and still right until you won't pass by small spike. Then go few steps to the right (let's say about 8) and considerably up. This certain character should be in your range of view then.
Hope this helps.
Pointing out a little bug: after completing the Stab Town area, the Machete item doesn't disappear from your inventory afterwards.
Yeah, I've noticed that one as well. Still, thanks for pointing that out anyway.
Another bug I found, in the newest update - when trying to interact with the TV in the alleyway in 24, you can only do so if you go the upper right side of the crate it's on and interact with it.
Oh, thanks for that info. I found out that TV event started to mysteriously dissappear and the box it was on was not there anymore (strange occurence - it just like vanished by itself), so one thing I had to do was putting box under TV. It seems that I put the wrong one… Well, toke care of it but I'll upload corrected part when I'll do more changes perhaps.
Found a typo - when you first find the Book of Wails, there are two " marks after Wails ("Book of Wails""). Should be just one.
Also, does the last entry of Sophia's Diary - the Princess entry - have a description beyond the date? Or it is intentionally left empty?
It is empty because I didn't really had an idea of what to write there. I may put something there later on, however making this one secret could be good for the sake of 3rd act.
Ah, okay then.
Anyway, I think the Sophia's Diary segments may need a look-over with typos; I think in one part of Cinderella's speech she uses "you" where I think they would fit better (It hurts not being accepted the way you are), unless that's also intentional?
And with some parts of the actual diary entries - and the World's End Diary, won't is used instead of will. So yeah, just give it a look through.
A few more things. First, after completing any of the Birth segments and getting the diary entry, you can still go back through the red door to the Birth segment itself (like in Milene's entry, you go to her garden) where I think it would be better to have the segment as a one-off thing and you go straight to the room you get the physical diary entry from (if that makes sense?). Not to mention that the entries usually can't be completed again and you get stuck because there isn't a way to go back.
Second, I replayed Birth and there's a sequence at the start, where a mysterious voice tells Sophia to "wake up, it's time." Are you going to put that into the game or will you keep it left out?
Third, I think the yellow city in the first part of the Birth segments could use some expanding. It feels far less like a city than the original and more like a street with a branch off to the "outskirts". Maybe just add an extra street or two and expand it a little bit?
Fourth, the area on street 14 where you walk up or down to access street 12 looks rather odd at the "top" - maybe change it so it's the same as other street crossings?
Last thing, there's no streets numbered 11 or 15: and you mentioned on the blogspot about adding places such as a gallery or sound test room - maybe you could add in these two "missing" streets and use them as two potential areas for such places? It's a suggestion, at the least.
Oh, one more thing I forgot: maybe make the game, when it starts up, default to windowed mode instead of full screen mode?
Hm… as for reentering rooms from act II, I checked it moment ago and it seemed to be fine (at least from looking at scripts). I remember that in older version there was such case, but it shouldn't be in the most updated version.
Line from Birth that you're talkin about wasn't really considered to be put in this game. However I could add it for upping up mystery factor. It is not necessary line, but it won't hurt having it there. We'll see anyway…
As for the yellow city (or Inhuman City, as it is called in game editor) I was at first considering making it bigger, but well, honestly I wanted to spare players from additional wandering at that point. Not mentioning that I wanted to make II act more narrative, to seem like a story, instead of usual game. Of course there is an exception to that as well (final entry, that is).
As for street 14/12 - that's actually what my wife spotted. You see, when you stand where you could go up or down, you stand on crossroad kinda thing. Going up or down simply 'turns' map in 90 degrees. Street 12 has actual street only on the right side of this crossroad. On the left, there is a big space similiar to promenade. That is what you see when you're on street 14 - above lies promenade, below - asphalt.
As for lack of streets 11 and 15 - these won't be added. Upon looking at map, you can see that there are no streets there. Numbers on map are barely designation of each 'screen' - both vertical and horizontal. Lack of these two streets comes from a fact that I designed city map first - or rather map's grid and numering it they way visible.
As for fullscreen/windowed mode - yeah, I've been thinking that perhaps starting with fullscreen may piss off some people. I personally prefer my games in fullscreen, but that's just me. I'll consider it.
K, small update/fix is available. Mostly got rid of grammatical errors. You can always check out more info about changes here:http://divinityfatum.blogspot.com/2014/01/delayed-updatefix.html
And link to updated demo, if anyone cares:http://www.mediafire.com/download/oa3nfihqboh325b/Divinity+Fatum.exe
I started something like a 'contest' for Divinity Fatum. Basically, there will be an Art Gallery in 3rd act and I'd like to fill empty frames with pictures of different artists. More details can be read here: http://divinityfatum.blogspot.com/2014/02/divinity-fatum-art-gallery-contest.html
If anyone would like to participate, I'd be glad.
Wow, the game has advanced so much since the last time I played it.
However, I am unsure about the battle system. I guess it will be worked more when it is matured but so far it seems there is only one ability available. And I don't know, but battling seems… kinda out of place in a game like this. Could there be some way of making it more subtle, like making it play like a puzzle instead of a normal fight? I am thinking about something like FFX's Seymour Omnis battle mechanics, but with weaknesses instead of attacks.
I liked a lot what you did to the enemy's visual effects and that nice health bar though, but using the RPG Maker's combat input system clashes with the rest of the scene. Maybe you could make the box transparent or rearrange the distribution and position of the box?
Note that I'm not saying adding a fight is bad, but it feels weird to me considering the rest of the game is pretty "peaceful" (if you can call it that way).
Anyway, I gotta say I will play and love this game no matter what. I am pretty sure the third act is going to be as good as the rest, and the last two were awesome. I always recommend it whenever people ask for small horror games.
I started act 3 after the first fight when i get out of the hospital the screen goes black and i can only access the menu,is this a bug or the end of the demo?
Okay,thanks for the fast reply.
You're making a great game
How's progress on the game going? There hasn't been any news in a while.
wow, it looks gritty and somber
i like it.
What RPG Maker(s) was Divinity Fatum made in? Both the original release and the current version.
First Divinity Fatum, as well as Divinity Fatum :Birth: were made in RPG Maker XP. Current one is being developed in RPG Maker VX Ace.
Hey, is this game still alive? There's been no update since almost a year ago.
Bumping for hopeful progress report.
Purple Prose: The Game, featuring Dante from Devil May Cry series.
And to think that people actually enjoy it so much. How embarassing.
Envy for what exactly? Appalling taste? Yeah, right, tell me about it.
It is embarrassing, if you're going to use a hack n' slash character in a fangame, why not make a rhythm game where you make Bayonetta twerk? I'd play the shit out of it.
OP, in all seriousness, this looks kinda interesting. When I get on my gaming machine, I'll give it a try.
This thread should probably be moved to /og/?
It's been here for six years, there's no need.
This is the best thing I've woken up to today. I love DF and have been eagerly awaiting the last pieces of the game, so it's great to hear you're working on it again!
Glad to hear that. I hope this won't turn out like latest Duke Nukem. It was - and still is - my ambition to finish making that game.
There is still a lot to do (especially graphics), but when it comes down to the main plot, It's getting pretty close to the end now.
Dude, nice. I remember the first demo you shared on /rpgmg/. That was a while ago now lol.
You should update your DF blogs with this info. Let non-Uboachan followers know that the game isn't dead.
