This RPG Maker VX demo starts with default RTP music and a poor title screen (the letters “TM” are in the top right of the screen). The game starts by telling me how to save, rest and fish amongst other things. There is odd capitalisation, bad grammar and bad spelling. The introduction talks about Examino, a thief and leader of a clan. One night, he goes to sleep. He wakes up in an unknown house. Whilst he was asleep he was “realised to be the saviour of a differant world”. This is a world of monsters under attack from Lord Kaka’s creatures (that is actually the villains name?). The text is just written so poorly.
The character wakes up in the unknown house. The mapping is very poor. The room is huge and near enough empty. A closed chest sprite changed to an open chest whilst asking if you want to pick the lock. The house is in a town, which is horribly mapped. There is such a misuse of the wall tile in interior maps.
Characters occasionally curse, however, the curses are censored. It’s pretty ridiculous. One prisoner seems to know everything that is going on for some reason. The main character references Lord Kaka. This is pretty odd as the villain has only been mentioned in the introduction, so the main character wouldn’t know anything about Kaka.
To leave the town, you need to find a letter for someone who is blocking the entrance. The letter is pretty difficult to find as it’s hidden behind a tree, so you can barely see it. After leaving, you run into a girl who is scared she is going to be killed for an unpaid debt.
You find the guy who lent her the money and said he was just in a bad mood. He then tells you why he was in a bad mood. The scene changes to an arena fight.
“This scene’s purpose was to show why Treez was annoyed.
Also, Treez, seriously?
The battles are just standard front view and turn based. A random character joins you at one point and learns the spell Fire. His Fire cost 20 MP, the main character’s Ice is 4 MP and his Ice II is only 12 MP. The battling is fine though. I progress through the game… and in one town there’s a gambler. When you speak to them, it allows you to rename yourself, but only to one character less than your current name is. I don’t get it at all. There’s a house that doesn’t transport you inside. You can’t exit to the south of this town, despite there being an exit, so I figure this is the end of the demo.
“Didn’t you die already?”
There is no sense of direction whatsoever. There is excessive cursing. The main character’s name is Examino. You can’t run on nearly every other map. The whole thing is a mess. ¼*
