That looks awesome!

But why do all of the characters have the same face?
It's because I used Charas, and that's one of the few expressions I've found that I really like.

I might as well post some more project details here:
There won't be any shops in the game. Towns were divided into the two factions, and no one will sell to those who are neutral, meaning Sky and his party. Instead, healing items are obtained through battle and at certain places. For example, when you beat an enemy, you might receive a Meat, which would restore so much health. Or, if you stopped at an oasis, you could find Water, which would restore so many MP.
Your equipment is the same the whole game, but you can level up your skills.
Sky, Kurai and Hikari all know magic. Sky can learn Holy Levels 1-3 and Dark Levels 1-3; Kurai can learn Dark Levels 1-4; Hikari can learn Holy Levels 1-4. Kain can't use magic, but he can learn more skills than anyone else.

Spoiler For Projects:

My projects haven't been worked on in a while, so they're all on hiatus for the time being. I do hope to eventually return to them in some form or another...

Spoiler For Pokemon TI:
Axe port of Pokemon Red/Blue to the 83+/84+ family. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia:
My big personal project, an original RPG about dimensional travel and a few heroes tasked with saving the world.
Coding-wise, on hold, but I am re-working the story.

Spoiler For Finale's Super Insane Tunnel Pack of Doom:
I will be combining Blur and Collision Course into a single gamepack. On hold.

Spoiler For Nostalgia Origins: Sky's Story:
Prequel to Nostalgia. On hold, especially while the story is re-worked.

Wow, this looks awesome!  I can't wait!
Good luck getting an RPG done in a week or two, but it looks like you're already well on your way. ;D

Battle Mockup.
Since this will be short, you won't need to level all the way to 99. You'll probably max out somewhere around 15-20.
Max HP: 255  Max MP/AP: 15  Max Stats: 64.

Wow!  I take it this isn't gonna be using Nostalgia's concept of switching between ASCII and sprites?  Nevertheless, that is amazing.  :o

Nope, because this is back in the beginning when Alteria was whole. There aren't aren't multiple dimensions yet. The Creator doesn't even exist yet.

The Creator was the guardian figure created after the First War, which is going on during Sky's Story.
He was called the Creator, because he ushered Alteria into an age of peace, which he created. He was also given control over Creation when the Great Beings who formed Alteria and the Universe sealed themselves away.

The two Great Beings, the First Light and the First Dark, created Alteria, but they were thrown into a great war for reasons unknown.
Sky calmed them, stopping the First War, and causing the Great Beings to see what they had done.
Because of this, the Star element was created to balance Light and Dark, and control of these 3 elements as well as the power of Creation was entrusted to a pure soul on Alteria.
Afterward, the Great Beings disappeared for some time, leaving the Creator to govern Alteria.
This is explained in the prologue I posted in the Nostalgia thread.

oh, ok.  ;)
wow, you really put a lot of thought into this!  :o
I realize this isn't a story, but seriously, this is the kind of thing that would fit with what Tolkein once said: A truly amazing story is one that will continue to thrive even when the writer is absent.
meaning: I'm sure if you left the story and prologue, someone else will be able to write their own game after or before the setting of the actual Nostalgia.  ;)

/\was that understandable at all?  :P

Yeah, that was clear. Thanks. :)

I've actually theorized a lot of the history (and future based on the events of Nostalgia) of Alteria, and could very well make several other games to fill in. But, I have to finish this and Nostalgia first!
