Reuben Quest: Lost Between Times
(https://img.ourl.ca/intro.gif)
It's been about two years since I started working on Reuben Quest: Lost Between Times (https://www.omnimaga.org/reuben-quest/reuben-3-teasers/), but now it is finally done!

Have fun joining Reuben in an epic adventure, to do so just download it over here: http://www.ticalc.org/archives/files/fileinfo/468/46837.html
This RPG is full of monsters, caves, secrets, side-quests and much more! With many hours of playtime the fun is guaranteed to last quite some time.

Also, happy holidays!

I see you made it just in time for the TI Calc POTY award! I know who I'm voting for! lol

Seriously guys, just from the demo that I saw, this game is amazing! There's the main quest, but so many little secrets hidden everywhere. You feel your character's strength when he levels up, and the bad guys' sprites are beautiful! The plot is more than just the main story; it's a whole world to explore. Go ahead, give it a download and see for yourself!

This would be a 10/10 in my book.

That's so cool, I can't wait to have my TI-z80 back now!

I can see in the image the term "cought", does it actually exist or is it a mispelling?

How embarissing, it's actually a misspelling :P
I fixed it now in my local version so that if i ever update a bugfix release or something it will be fixed, too, however IMO it is too minor to spam the ticalc file archives with that :P

Good to see that this is finally released! I'll definitely play this when I get a chance!
And it also means I get to have a whole 'nother year to work on Escheron since I know what's winning the 2017 POTY award...

Sometimes you get lost. Current times are a  mess. 'Lost between times' is the way forward.
It's kinda nice you've just missed this year's POTY (less fame bound can also be cool at times  :blah:).

I wonder if this will make it into next year's POTY then? I sure hope so XD

Thanks! Featured programs on ticalc are automatically enrolled for POTY, so the requirement would be to get it featured ;)

I just finished beating the game. Woah! It was AWESOAME!  :thumbsup:

I just have a couple of bugs to report.
When you use the hookshot, it can pull you partly into a wall. It doesn't do anything bad (you can't walk though walls then) but Ruben IS partly inside a wall.

The other is a little more serious. If you collect a special item (like swimsuit) save the game, and then start a new game, you will still gain the effect. I noticed this when I loaded my beaten game, created a new one, and was able to swim in shallow water! The inventory doesn't report me having the swimsuit though and when I reloaded it I could no longer swim.

It appears that buying elxir inside the Ailreon shop is free. While the text says it is 100 gold, my gold doesn't go down when I buy some. All the other items have normal prices as far as I can tell.

Other than that, it is a really awesome game! I was blown away!

I haven't played an awful lot, but it's fun so far!
I have one major bug to report, though: Whenever I press the down arrow when I'm charged for an attack, I get an error (Err:Link I believe) and it causes my calc to freeze and I have to pull a battery.

This is.....odd.
Which calculator?
Did you have an item selected? Which one? Was it a bottle? What was inside the bottle?

TI-84+SE OS 2.55MP (shush, I use it for the extra built in functions :P )
I tried it at various points in the game including with water selected. It also crashes when I go to use magic, then press down. And occasionally if I die and hit [2nd] too quickly, it glitches to an odd map area and when I move it causes it to crash.

Great game,  but has some bugs in the save/continue system. Maybe an update?
Also,  does this game use the 6mhz or 15mhz mode?

Would you mind describing it more? Which calculator model do you use?

If your calc supports 15mhz it uses that, else 6mhz

I have a TI84+SE. It crashed a few times if I repeatedly exited and continued without restarting the game. Somehow , I reduced the chances risk by deleting the appVar GS a few times over. XD XD Also, my calc has a LONG history of incompatibility with certain TI83+ games, so maybe it's the calc itself (I also have issues with file loss and/or program VAT entry loss).

I am experiencing the same bug as Xeda112358. When I try to use an item in a battle, first the game freezes and the grayscale stops working (only black and white). After a few seconds, the screen clears and "error:link" appears. After that, I have to reset the ram for my calculator to behave properly (garbled screen, etc.). I even saw  a blue line of death once. I have a ti-84 plus with 2.55MP.

I found another minor bug: when there is options in dialogues, sometimes the bullet that indicates the selection doesn't move even if the other option is selected. It happens mainly in the first area.

P.S Reuben Quest: The Lost Mirror (ASM remake) works perfectly on my calculator (great game!).

Are you on the latest Reuben3 version? Which item did you try to use?

Are you on the latest Reuben3 version?
Downloaded from ticalc.org 3 days ago.

Which item did you try to use?
I don't even have the chance to select one. It crashes as soon as I press "down" from the main battle engine screen (Left - Attack, Up - Magic, Right - Run, Down - Item). I tried while having 1 water and 2 water. I never see them from the battle engine, I know I have them because of the item menu ("mode" key).

Edit: I finally understood how it works and tested different items. Bombs work. Ginseng displays "50+ MP", but the game freezes. Everything else crashes the game.
