New Release: Chapter 1-10 Package and more:





Site/Forum:

Some of what to expect:

Original Soundtrack:
A widely recognized original soundtrack composed by your's truly (Kan Gao) and James Q. Zhang.
----------------------------------------------

Sample tracks:
Click me: [Instrumental, composed by Kan (Reives) Gao] BGM Sample
Click me: [Sang by Laura Shigihara, Composed by Kan (Reives) Gao] Ending Theme: "Drift"



Story:
General consensus from players state that the story is the most defining aspect of Quintessence, as well as its presentation. The directing and story-telling style is influenced by Elfen Lied, for those who are familiar with it. While I have never been keen on posting a summary of the plot or characters (and I do understand that this bothers some people), I will say that the genre is fantasy, drama, arguably romance, and all that generic category stuff; which doesn't say much.



Overall, this is indeed a story-focused project above all else. With the help of carefully choreographed and attempted pseudo-cinematic cut-scenes as well as over 400 face-pictures and a metaphorically constructed custom soundtrack composed by the designer himself with involvement in the actual plot itself, story and characters are valued above all. Quintessence has also received 2007 Misaos awards in the categories of Story as well as Cast of Characters and Best Supporting Character.

Beginning to sound like a B.S. sales pitch already? Then I've done my job. c:



Game-play:
In the past, game-play has not been a focus in the project. However, with this new release, the intro and chapter 1 has been thoroughly revamped and much improved - including the inclusion of much game-play. From puzzles to its custom battle system, game-play is an aspect that has certainly began to sink with this new revamp.

Oh wow, this forum's much more lively now days? Last time I was here it took like 3 days to get 3 replies  ;D  Thanks for your time and comments!

I started on it 3 days ago coolkid, although the music intro video was done a long time ago and I just polished it up a little before slapping it on there. (writing the music was another story though :-X )

Edit:
Nevf;
That fighting scene between Aira and Azura was such a pain in the #@% that by the end I had not the slight idea of what's happening inside the event coding, so I cut it off short at that.  :D

None.

You don't absolutely need scripts to make good things happen.  ;)


Edit: Unless you're talking about the whole intro demo; then the scripts used were advanced message system by Dubealex and credit scrolling script for the credit rolls a the end of the demo (by author unknown, edited by MiDas Mike).

Don't worry, that's exactly the same way I felt when I was inspired to make this, after seeing something else. You learn and improve by seeing a new horizon; this gets passed on by person after person.  :) That's my main goal of posting this, to show people what they can do in RMXP as what I've seen from other people a while ago.

Edit: If you want to know how to do some of the things in there, feel free to ask. Once you know it, everything suddenly gets very simple. :)

Yeah I just remembered you mentioned that on my old thread before the forum went down :D Sorry I forgot to edit that.

Thanks for that attachment, I think I will change her char set with a slightly altered version of that hat.

Thanks again~ And Merry Christmas  :)

Yay more customers. :)


I made Lunair's hat out of the charset you posted, Christina. Thanks for the reference! :D It's now implemented and there will be lots and lots of hats for the future demos to come.

Wow. Very sweet intro demo of your game. It was short, but enough for us players to speculate  what happened in the 'future'.

I was also slightly bugged by the fact that the original Lunair's sprite didn't have a hat. Nice to know that it will be added on. ^^

Thanks for the input!

Nev: I'm working on a revamp of the starting village's maps and etc. atm., mostly the interriors. However, there is a 3 hour worth of demo for the old version of the game somewhere. It's not that good though, so I'm not really anxious to show it :P 

Feild: Ooh thanks a lot, I'll fix it right away!

Thanks. The old version's interiors were crap (pretty much the first few maps I made in any RM programs), so I'm redoing all of them now. Might take a while.
