I remember rpg with the same title on j2me
Deceit of Heretics? Not gonna lie, it was one of my favorite games on java. The amount of top tier dark humor pearls was just insane.
Btw, the list was updated and now it's including also more popular stuff. I guess, I should just delete the thread and make a new one now.
Just wanted to post and say thanks for this.
I don't have anything particular to say but I thought I would let you know how much I appreciate this so you don't feel you're dumping pics into the void.
Hey OP, have you ever played Jimmy and the Pulsating Mass? If so, what did you think of it?
Thanks, man. Well, at least the threads here aren't dying fast, so it won't go to nowhere surely heh.>>5738
Haven't played yet but heard a lot of good things about it and that it is some mix between End Roll, Lisa and Earthbound. If you played it and can give a description, I will put it as well.
I love Pocket Mirror, very nice addition.
I'd like to nominate Amayado Bus Stop (雨宿バス停留所) for the list. This game is severely underrated. I found the puzzles fun, the atmosphere is great, the story is interesting, and it's pretty cute. Definitely give it a try if you like the genre.
>Genre: horror/puzzle>Engine: RPG Maker VX Ace>Summary:
At a mountain road behind the school, there is a bus stop that went out of service twenty years ago, where bullied girl Chitose meets a girl called Kobato waiting for a bus that shouldn’t ever come…>Translation homepage with download link:https://tosiaki7.tumblr.com/post/119499999622/amayado-bus-stop>Original (JP) version download link:https://www.freem.ne.jp/win/game/7872
Thanks for addition, anon, gonna put it in next time. In the future I probably will separate JRPG's from Puzzle horrors, but for now it's gonna stay a kind of mess.
Besides, here's the pastebin for all the download links posted here and there, so anons shouldn't search for them in threads. Right now there aren't many of them, but it's gonna get larger.https://pastebin.pl/view/e46cbe59
Great. I see, it looks manageable for now, but we'll see how long it'll grow.
By the way, you probably want to add the original (RM2000, Japanese (not the Chinese translation)) version of Mogeko Castle to the download list; it was posted here: >>5731
It's a great game by Deep-Sea Prisoner (who made Wadanohara and The Grey Garden too), and only the remake (which is playable in English too) was available in Japanese before.
Tales of the Black Forest for me.
Steam (translated): https://store.steampowered.com/app/1093910/Tales_of_the_Black_Forest/
Thanks, anon. Will be in next time.
Did you play this? Can you give a short description? Two-three sentences is enough
technically Helen came out in 2011, the 2016 release is just the translation + a bit bonus content afaik
Thanks, anon, I fixed it.
so you accept h-rpgs?
Well, as long as they're going much further than just a regular fap delivery, yes. In other words, if a game could present a good story or interesting gameplay, and porn is just an addition, it could be added (for example, Black souls, albeit being h-game, is much more an RPG than porn).
Write about it when you finish, ok anon? I'm not sure there will be place left for that, but who knows.
Also, a little update + brand new shilling symbol.
>hidden Rpg Maker gems
>Misao, .flow, off, wadanohara
At this point might as well drop the "hidden"
I'd suggest to add Pen Pals, Deeproot Manor and Fifth Era: Fragments of the Holy Stone
Looks like there is a need for a second list.
Maybe separating them into translated and not? Or regarding genre?
I agree with this anon >>5791
Top-to-down divided by genre, left-and-right by translation status, or something like that. It makes it easier to tell what to expect of a game.
I was thinking about replacing them with something more obscure, since they don't really fit much in the list (at the very least replace Wadda with Mogeko, flow. with fleshchild etc.).
Also, I'll check the titles. You're welcome to give descriptions also.>>5791>>5792
Some anon suggested to separate them by alphabet order, but I'll do it only when all the templates are filled. I don't think that separating by genres or translations could be a good idea: too much jrpg on the list compared to horrors and explo, as well as too much translated titles compared to untranslated.
About making a second list: probably, but I don't promise anything. Have to finish some important stuff first, and I just hope I could bring this list to a nice state (delete some unneded stuff, make nice backgrounds to templates etc.).
Take your time, anon.
Anyway thanks for your work until now, it gave me a few good ideas.
哥欲祟-ｳﾀﾎﾉﾀﾀﾘ (Utahonotatari) is really underrated
The only download I could find was the untranslated version, the original website for the game was down:https://www.vector.co.jp/soft/winnt/game/se498570.html
"Utano Yamano, who lived a normal daily life.
Her life suddenly changes in the wake of a certain incident.
The mysterious death of the family that occurs one after another.
To solve the mystery, I will explore various places by relying on the notes left by my sister."
I second this. Thanks for putting the effort to come up with this list.
Updated! (added some descriptions + backgrounds, so some templates won't look like shit).>>5790
Added almost everything, but instead of Fifth Era I added Theia: The Crimson Eclipse (by the same dev), ok? Well, if you insist, I would replace it back with Fifth Era.>>5797>>5794
Thanks for kind words, guys (actually, I kinda like to task with creating stuff like this. The problem is that it takes too much time, so I have to refrain from this a bit for the sake of other projects).>>5796
Woah, I'm not a big fan of pure japanese horror style, but this looks (and sounds) genuinely spooky. Added (I forgot to mark it "untranslated", will be fixed in the next update).
Sorry for being off topic but I was wondering if the Wayback Machine link wasn't loading for anyone else?
This is very nice anon, maybe would be nice as a neocities site? Perhaps with the ability to click on a game and have an expandable window with info on it?
Did you play this yourself, anon? Half of the people in the comments are complaining that the game is buggy as hell, is it even running well?>>5807
I usually stick with images since: 1)it's simplier; 2)I don't know shit in programming; 3)if to make a site, isn't it going to be just another RMaker database like vserecommendations?
I did, yeah. There was also a full lp of it by a guy called mikennemonic many years ago but I can't find it now, I guess he deleted.
Is wadanohara too automatic in the combat?
Demon King Chronicle, Helen's Mysterious Castle, and Touhou Wandering Souls are my favorite RPG Maker games.>>5813
I've only played the version on vgperson's site, but it's ridiculously, insanely easy. Normal fights are 100% optional and if you fight like, one enemy per dungeon you'll wind up overleveled.
how is demon king chronicle? what is it about?
It takes place on a magic island where stories have the power to alter reality. The protagonist's goal is to find the ending to a dead author's unfinished book. It's not very dialogue heavy and if you want to understand what's happening you'll have to put a bit of effort into piecing information together.
Its combat system isn't anything too interesting on its own, the way you get into fights and what happens between fights are both really unique and make it so attrition from numerous battles and getting crushed in one big battle are both serious threats. Monsters can be seen in dungeons while exploring like in Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, etc. But in Demon King Chronicle, the monsters hunt in packs and you want to try to pick off small numbers at a time if you can. When you attack one, often its friends will try to swarm you and if they succeed you're probably going to die, so you need to be careful. After winning a fight, your HP and MP will slowly regenerate for a little while. If you get attacked by something else right after winning, you won't have a chance to rest and they'll wear you down.
I was trying the demon king chronicle and the start seems too tedious and grindy, is it the whole game like that?
You hardly need to grind at all. Finding new items will increase your strength way faster than grinding levels will. Exploration is dangerous when you're low level and you need to be super careful about fighting small numbers of enemies at a time, but that's a big part of the fun. The level cap is needlessly high so if you want to grind your problems away the game allows it, you just don't have to.
I'm not gonna say you can beat the game with no grinding at all because I'm sure that isn't true. There's a world of difference between an item you just equipped and an item you've fully mastered. But you can get away with very little grinding if you know which items are good and how to acquire them. In my first playthrough I got stonewalled a lot (which I personally enjoy,) but on my second playthrough the pacing was very brisk.
is there a way to avoid enemies? you start a battle without ever touching them and cant escape them
Is Your Turn To Die/Kimi Ga Shine considered to be a gem, as in relatively hidden and unknown? I believe it's made in RPG maker so I was wondering if it was worth mentioning it in this thread.
It's a kind of mix between a visual novel/adventure horror/puzzle/death game with strong danganronpa roots.https://vgperson.com/games/yourturntodie.htm
>>5841>I believe it's made in RPG maker so I was wondering if it was worth mentioning it in this thread.
Yeah, it is. I think it deserves a place here too.
There's a certain distance that triggers a fight. There's no visual indication so you just need to get a feel for it, but it's the same for all enemies. Sometimes you can avoid fighting by keeping your distance, but a lot of the time you can't. Later enemies tend to pursue more aggressively, so you're generally safer trying to pick them off one by one rather than trying to avoid the whole lot. Once they're thinned out a bit you can usually run past the others.
Do any of you guys know japanese? 鬱夫の恋 Seems pretty great, but is completely untranslated or known
I've played it, it looks way better when you don't know Japanese because it just seems insane and incomprehensible from the battles and stuff, but really it's just a cliche story about bullying
have you thought about translating an untranslated game you liked?
It's a lot of work, my dude. I've translated a few and, trust me, you burn out pretty quickly. Especially since usually you don't get any help at all.
Not that anon btw
I don't really like RPG Maker games tbqh
Maybe if PC98/PS1/etc games were easier to mess with without knowing assembly code hacking or whatever I would try one of those
what games do you like?
Sup, guys. Sorry, I haven't been here for a while. Almost finished with the descriptions.>>5841
I don't know how is it in the rest of the world, but I know it's pretty popular in russian community. Didn't play it myself, though.
I would like to point out Skyborn.
Tell us more, anon.
It takes place in a world where a race called the Skyborn have won a war against humanity and rule over them now. The children of a skyborn and a human are called half breeds and they are being pursued, they get thrown into jail, never to be seen again. You start the game as a woman, who is a mechanic. At the start you lose your job and in an act of defiance you get dragged into the unfolding rebellion against the Skyborn. The characters are lovely, the story interesting and the combat unique. In combat there is threat, the party member with the highest threat gets hit by all the single enemy focused attacks, because of that you have to be careful what you do and when you do it.
One thing worth mentioning on the Black Souls games is that they're pretty different from each other. Even if you disliked one you may like the other.
