We are about to have an influx of refugees from the shuttered 8chan, and this is probably inevitable.
However, this is not 8chan, and it's definitely not 4chon.

Please leave your hitlers, seisatsu.pngs, burning crosses, and shitpost floods at the door.
Even on /ot/, we expect some level of quality in our posts. Please familiarize yourselves with our rules and guidelines, and make sure to lurk before posting.
Also, apologies for deleting the /4chon/ refugee thread outright, I overreacted. There's nothing wrong with such a thread as long as it doesn't cause me too much of a headache.
Enjoy your stay and don't be a dick.

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

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 anew."

This game was an experiment in storytelling, "cutscene" programming, the wonky 2k3 battle system, and in color palettes (which do change throughout the game.) And, if you don't attack every wolf you see, it can be completed in about an hour.

ALSO: I was told to make two separate threads for this game and another I've made to keep discussion localized, so I hope that's ok!

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!

Thank you very much! I'm glad you enjoyed it! I hope to do more with something like this in the future, because I really enjoyed making it.

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.
