Hello Uboa! I'm here to post an old, complete game that I have made (in rpgmaker 2003, released in 2016), called Jasei No In: The Serpent's Lust.

RPGmaker.net: https://rpgmaker.net/games/8710/
Devblog: http://bleetdev.tumblr.com/jaseinoin
Direct Download: https://www.mediafire.com/file/psrbohbwxd9hk11/Jasei+no+In+v.1.3.rar

This game was a project from university a few years ago, that I expanded into a full, completed game. JNI is a project about adaptation, specifically: I adapted half of a short story (usually called Jasei no In or The Serpent's Lust or some variant) from a collection of classic Japanese supernatural tales (called the Ugetsu Monogatari) and turned it into a videogame.

From my devblog:
"Jasei no In: The Serpent’s Lust is a short, linear game with a strong narrative… This particular story is a very popular one in Japan, and has gone through many adaptations since its initial creation around 1776.

The protagonist, Manago, is a simple weaver girl who gets caught in a rainstorm. A mysterious man in white appears out of nowhere and shields her from the rain, lending her an umbrella. Feeling indebted to him and perhaps a little attracted to him as well, she tries to return the umbrella to his manor hidden deep in the woods. Manago quickly becomes swept up in a romance that is not all that it seems, and must figure out who exactly the mysterious man in white really is, or face severe consequences.

The game isn’t horror, but it contains supernatural/paranormal themes."

This looks pretty cool. Did some research in to the name, looks like its an amalgamation of some old Chinese stories with some spins on the plot.

> 蛇性の婬」は、『雨月物語』中唯一の中篇小説の体をとっている。原話は、『警世通言』第28巻「白娘子永鎮雷峰塔」であるが、途中から終結を道成寺縁起へ結びつける、独自な要素をもっている。


Jasei no In is a novella from "May Stories (lit. rain month stories)". The original version is from "Stories to Caution the World"'s 28th volume, "The White Maiden Trapped in Leifeng Pagoda", but along the way combines the ending of "Dojoji Omen" (the story of Kiyohime) and has its own unique elements as well.

この小説を粉本として書かれたとされる日本の文学作品に、江戸時代後期の上田秋成作とされる『雨月物語』中の『蛇性の淫』[32]がある。

Won't bother translating this, but for those interested, go to https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E9%9B%A8%E6%9C%88%E7%89%A9%E8%AA%9E#%E8%9B%87%E6%80%A7%E3%81%AE%E5%A9%AC

Anyways, the art looks great. I'll definitely give it a shot.

Hello, and here's another old, complete game that I have made (in rpgmaker 2003, released in 2016), called The Huntress of the Hollow.

(If it says it needs the RTP): http://www.mediafire.com/file/b2uh4vsv2oil9c5/The+Huntress+of+the+Hollow+v1.2+with+RTP.rar

Huntress is my passion project spin on Little Red Riding Hood, and is a pseudo-rpg, which means levels don't matter, experience doesn't matter, and grinding is NOT necessary. The battles are mostly for flavor, and can be avoided entirely if desired, and the game gives a lot of recovery items should anyone decide to fight all the wolves they come across. It's a short story with multiple, sequential endings that all conclude the story in unique ways (except for when you die early in battle/get eaten by a wolf), with a bonus room at the very end.

From my devblog:
"Lenora Calamint lives with her mother in a small village called Pokeweed Hollow on the outskirts of a forest. She often delivers food to her stubborn grandmother, who prefers to live alone in the woods. While the forest is a dangerous place full of wolves, the village and her grandmother's house were peaceful.

However, once a travelling, charismatic hunter decided to settle near the village and offered to protect it, the local wolves became mysteriously violent and began to attack the village in erratic bursts of activity. Due to these events, some villagers praise the hunter for his help in keeping the wolves out of their homes. The others can't help but think there's something suspicious about the matter. Despite it all, Lenora still has a grandmother to take care of, and so she wakes up to begin her routine of visiting her grandmother anePost too long. Click here to view the full text.

So, like undertale? There's even faceless cutscenes. You sprite work looks nice, but you might want to put more detail into profile shots(the first game). The technicolors look nice in a stil image, but I imagine they would be a bit of an eye sore if you're playing the game for a long stretch. Maybe more neutral colors would be better in a future game. Conveying atmosphere is harder if every location is full of hot pinks and highlighter orange. Those locations should pop out and stick in the player's head as being unusual.

>like undertale?
I actually had not played undertale until after finishing this game, and it's not like undertale at all. There's quite a few pseudo-rpg games out there, my actual inspirations for this one were my friend moga's games (her Ghost Suburb series,) but there's also a bunch of others mostly on rpgmaker.net. OFF was also a great learning tool with basic battle effect animations.

Since Huntress was intended to be a short 1hr game, I took a lot of shortcuts in design and to experiment with color. The cutscene art is loose and featureless so I could make as much art as possible for endings. There's larger, detailed portraits in regular gameplay dialogue (bigger than Jasei no In's). The color palettes shift fairly frequently and the player won't stay in one area for long. I tried to make the music (royalty free) for each area match the atmosphere, so I do recommend playing it to get the feeling. There's let's plays on youtube if playing it isn't feasible (and I recommend ManlyBadassHero's LP in that case).

A lot of my color palette issues came about because I made this on my old 2010 dell laptop and the saturation on that computer turned out to be super wonky and I had no idea. A lot of my artwork from that time was a lot brighter or clashier than I physically saw myself. I wanted it to be much more balanced and less saturated, but I only just got a new laptop without the saturation issues and the game's complete and 2 years old already.

I learned a lot from this project and it definitely has a lot of flaws, but I hope anon enjoys it for what it is!

I liked this game, the choice between the final boss was well done. Neat battle music too.

Of all your games it's probably my favorite, so I hope you got in a direction closer to this.

My biggest complaint were probably the talk portraits though. The faces were all pretty bland.

Why do Japanese RPG Maker games have more of a well-known following than say western RPG Maker games?
Is it because western indies are so full of themselves because they think their game is art or something?
Of course there are exceptions (such as OFF or Lisa the Painful, for example), but it just seems that people are more receptive of games like Wadanohara or Towelket instead of games like bleet's games or Sore Losers.

Their priorities are completely different.
The western dev seems to focus on gameplay and implementing some robust gameplay mechanic, or making the game beautiful and distinct visually.
The jap dev on the other hand, focuses on story and characters. The popular RPG maker games all have story and character as the focus, not anything else. Even if focus was put to make the game appealing visually it's for the sake of characters and not for the sake of the game itself.

I would argue there isn't a correct approach, it's just modern audiences, or at least people who are willing to try RPG maker games lean toward preferring story/characters.

They're not. Towelket is unknown in the west and Wadanohara got popular because of Tumblr.

Takamo's games, Penpals, Pom Gets Wi-Fi, Dreaming Mary, and Your Star were popular for their time. Fleshchild had a big fanbase too.

Interest in RPG Maker games has simply died in general.

RPG Maker is just way more popular in its home country of Japan.

There are barely any western RPG Maker games that aren't memes or fangames. You've got your big ones (Off, Space Funeral, LISA, Hylics, etc.) and you've got a few dedicated creators, like bleet and Takamo. And that's basically it. It's not a popular engine outside of Japan.

You'll see a boom if one of the shitty bigger let's players ever get ahold of it again.

Two really weird games I haven't seen posted here before. Much like games such as Off, Space Funeral, and Middens they are DEFINITELY not for everyone.. or even most people probably. If you do like that type of game these are probably worth a play though.

dude you hit the nail on the head. i loved those games to death! they really are something special and amazing, and i feel jack king spooner is incredible underrated. i adore will you ever return and it's sequel.

have you played hylics by any chance? it's not by him but it's similar in that it's also claymation. i really love that game, hope you do as well!

I agree, jack is so underrated it hurts but i feel like that adds to the charm of his games. each time i play them i feel like im being let in on a little secret that few other people know. will you ever return and its sequels were really good. I really enjoyed mammoth as well.

ive never heard of hylics but thanks for telling me about it, ill check it out sometime.
