For those of you who know, I've moved this topic from Concepts to here as I figure I've made some progress...capitalize the word SOME. Anyway, for those who don't know, this is a game of mine and a few people, one of them named Sphinx called, Gate of Shadows. It was originally supposed to be a rom hack, but then SRPG Studio was officially released in english and we decided to move it on to here. Anyway, on tho the game.

Backstory

This game takes place in the 800s, following a thousand years after the kingdoms on the continent called Portas was established, when a hero named Griffith fights the increasing darkness that's surrounding him; all of which stemming from a dark mage extremely bent on using the Gate of Shadows. More than twenty years later,  follow his son, Aurelio, fight for the freedom of Portas and his kingdom.

Gameplay

Now I'm sure you're all familiar with Fire Emblem Genealogy of the Holy War; especially the part with Sigurd and Seliph. Well this game would function just like that; with two heroes in two generations.

There are also a list of things included in this game such as:

  • A return of the magic triangle
  • Return of knives and a new weapon type called Cane
  • Buffs and debuffs from Fire Emblem Heroes
  • GBA-styled supports (not in yet)
  • Returning base mechanic from FE9 and FE10
  • Wlv. from FE3 and FE1 make a return

Progress

Right now, there are only three chapters. I just wanted to release this as a short of demo, so people can get a feel of this game. I'll release the next part in the near future hopefully.

I think that's everything: here's the download link. I hope you enjoy the game!: https://www.dropbox.com/s/cob4trohchd1m8f/Gate of Shadows.zip?dl=0

Always exciting to see new SRPG Studio projects.  I'll give this one a try.

Though I would avoid using the Fire Emblem name unless you want Nintendo to C&D you.

...Hoo boy.  This game is going to need a lot of work.  Let's see:

  • Weapons have inconsistent artstyle
  • Several text strings appear to be garbled
  • The script as a whole could use some editing for flow and grammar
  • Unit balancing looks like it's all over the place.  (I know Elenoar is supposed to be your Oifey/Jagen, but everyone is so weak compared to her it's not funny.  Why do Cavaliers lose Movement on promotion?  Why do you only get 1 EXP for kills but more for not getting kills?)
  • Chapter 2 has a bunch of issues.
    • I'm guessing this is an Arran and Samson situation in which you have to pick which sibling lives and which one dies, but on the right path, both events play and they both die.
    • None of the enemies other than the Mercenaries and the top-left Soldier seem to attack you on Enemy Phase.
    • Stanley and the Thief twins don't have consistent portraits during events.
    • The top-right Soldier has a weapon he can't use.
  • Unlock does not appear to work

Thanks for this. I'll try to patch all of this up as soon as I can. If you don't mind, keep me posted if you notice anything else.

Why would you bring weapon level rates back? it's not fun

These are what SRPG Studio uses by default.  A custom Weapon Rank script exists, but it has to be edited from Japanese to English and adjusting your game to use it is a ton of work.

I figured that was the case, but since OP listed that as a feature, it seemed like he decided to add, rather than it being there already.
