Abstract: The Sentinel rule over Calden, a country that is considered a dream to live in by people all over the world, although it is not everything it seems on the inside. Monsters roaming the land, potential civil war and a puppet for a leader, join Srii as he learns the secrets of Calden.
Engine: RPG Maker VX Ace
Demo Gameplay Length
Microgame. It's roughly 30 minutes long.
Calden is a place of wonder and discovery, of peace and harmony, of desire. Most importantly, of illusion.
Srii is an assured young man from Kellan who not so long ago turned of age. His desire was to explore the world and he vowed he would begin as soon as he could. He wished to see everything there is to see. From the Shalrao Temple, the Northernmost point of the world, to the Bangellian Deeps down south. His first stop, Calden. It could be said it's the metropolis of the world. Not many people get to travel to other countries and even less get to go to Calden, it was an amazing opportunity that greeted Srii and he embraced it.
Calden looks alot different on the inside. Civil war is on the brink of breaking out, peace was never going to be easy to maintain in a land where Humans, Orcs and Elves live amongst one another. The monsters that roam the wilds had never been mentioned in the stories Srii was told of Celdan as a boy, nor had any of the other truths of the place. Then again, why would they? Bad words never seem to be spoken of Celdan outside of it and everything seems to be well kept hidden.
It can't be as perfect as people say, can it?
Some parallaxed maps, the game is not fully parallaxed to avoid a huge filesize, but all the maps are nice.
Unique story (as far as I know!).
Ring menu and Yanfly's Ace Battle Engine are just two of the great scripts used.
Great looking in-game story developments.
Sidequests all over the place to complete during or after the main story.
It's very hard for me to give a number, but perhaps somewhere around 5%.
It appears for some reason passability problems struck the game. All of a sudden I could walk through buildings, fences etc. despite the passabilities being set properly. If you spot any issues with this please let me know, although I think it's mostly been fixed.
