Made with: RPGMaker VXForeword
It might seem like I'm springing a complete game from nowhere but I've been working on it for a while with support at another forum. The credits at the bottom say lkoh, which is my name over there.
This is my first project so I decided to do something light that that wasn't too complicated. I didn't want to jam every cool script I saw into the game so the battles are done using the default system. There's a bit of puzzle-ish qualities to the game, such as picking up items to use elsewhere. The atmosphere of the game also isn't very serious.
(Finally) put out a v1.21 that mainly fixed a few minor issues. v1.21 only has the with music one so hope you like Japanese music.

Please let me know what you think.
A young girl from a small fishing village wants to leave and see the rural place and go to the big city. In order to do so however, she needs money. It just so happens that nearby, there is a region troubled by criminals, each with a large reward for their capture. So far, no one has been able to bring any of them down so she decides she'll be the one to do so.
And why will she succeed when others have failed? Because she's the main character! Seriously, that's the justification. It won't be as easy as running up to the criminals and attacking them however. You'll need to plan and get the help of others to bring each of them down.
In total, there are 8 bosses and the goal is to take down all of them. They range from the playfully mischievous to masters of magic, summoning fearsome creatures from the dark. In the end though, will she be able to defeat all 8 of them? That depends on the player of course.
The heroine of the game. She comes from a simple fishing village and is unhappy with the life there. But in order to move to the bigger cities, a lot of G is needed so she finds work as a bounty hunter. This suits her really well since she is really tough and likes fighting. But it won't be as easy as just going up to the bounties and attacking them so she needs help your help to figure out the best method to win.
Yes, that's right, throughout 90% of the game, this is the only playable character. There will be guest members from time to time but they won't stay long.Black Level Bounties
"Spider" Gilleray - 8000 G for capture
He's very interested in spiders and takes offense whenever people don't see the true benefit of the arachnids. Gilleray is also very good at mixing together different kinds of poisons to create his own brand. One of this concoctions act as an acid while at the same time poisoning the target.
Normally, this isn't really illegal but he tests out his poisons on regular people, because that's the best way to know the effects on intended targets.
He travels from place to place with a book of arachnids to see the various kinds of spiders in the world.
Ebine "from the Winds" - 9000 G for capture
A playful individual, she is a master of both illusion magic and wind magic. This makes it extremely difficult to pin her down.
She also likes to use her magic to play with others but her playmates usually end up in misery or despair. Her brand of playing is more along the lines of, watch the other people stumble around in her illusions since they don't know enough magic to break out. And if they should starve to death, who cares?
Calira "the Huntress" - 12000 G for capture
Her main goal is to capture the thrill of the hunt. When animals were no longer enough, she turned to people. People were targets that had all the same skills and intelligence that she had, an ultimate challenge.
"Red Claw" Tal Tal - 12500 G for capture
An escaped gladiator that knows only how to fight. Her claws have been stained red from all the blood she had shed (Hey, they rhymed!)
"Walk in the Night" Horo - 14000 G for capture
No information available but sources say not to walk alone during the night time, otherwise you might meet a strange figure on the road. This bounty sounds more like a folktale than a real personā€¦
"Dark Wave" Seso - 15000 G for capture
A local to the Okra County, she is a powerful magic user who is obsessed with dark wave energy. A mystical force considered to be dangerous so it was outlawed. Despite that, she continues her research and the local area is suffering from corruption. Strange monsters are starting to turn up as well.
"Lightning Strike" (Real Name Unknown) - 16000 G for capture
No information available
??? - 20000 G for capture

The jail's pretty empty. For now.
He's just lying over there, let's get him.
First bounty, Spider Gilleray!
We're under attack!
Let's go see what it is...
This is looking bad.
Ooh, it's night time. Spooky.
He's running away!
One of them is Walk in the Night Horo, but which one?

I have included a version with RTP and without RTP. Please choose the one that's more convienient for you.
Let me know of any errors you happen to find.Random hints
Buy items and use them! Platine only learns 6 skills so items are very important.
While buying items, don't be too frivolous. Enemies don't drop G so the only source of income is the rewards from the bounties. And while it may seem like a lot, some of that G will be used in plot based purchases.
On the 6 skills note, there's no need to level up too much. The last skill is learned at level 10 and the difference between stats at level 1 and 99 is only about 15-20 points, except for HP which is 600 point difference. It only takes 100 exp per level though.
Finally, there is a bit of puzzle element to this game though, so explore. If a battle seems unwinnable, you most likely need to do something first. The boss battle music will usually change when they become beatable.
