  • Jenallia's Wrath (RPG Maker VX Game)

    Hi Hongfire! I've lurked here from time to time, but never actually had an account or anything like that. Someone I know mentioned that I should get word of my game on here, so I'm following their advice.

    The game's called Jenallia's Wrath, it's a standard RPG game with Text-based H elements at the moment (working on fixing that eventually), as the author I can't really say if it's good or not (I always feel like there's stuff I can do better) but some folks have seemed to like it so far, so I figured I'd post it here, hopefully get some feedback on anything I could improve. These next two months are a bit hectic, but I plan to eventually get the next version out!





    Current version: 0.5




    Summary

    When the first of their kin appeared in the world, magic users were viewed with harsh prejudice. In most cases, magi were killed, or abandoned as soon as their latent power became noticeable.

    Centuries passed... Removing mage-kin from the world was commonplace until the great kineticist Jenallia came to be. Managing to escape death, she was the first recorded mage to have understood her powers, and quickly put them to use. The reports claimed that small villages had been attacked at first... Then watch towers, strongholds, eventually entire castles! As Jenallia's uprising grew, so did the number of mage-kin under her watchful eyes...

    These kin began to follow in her footsteps, seeking out those of magical power, and teaching them to control their curse. Soon, an empire had formed under her, from which mage-kin not only lived freely, but ruled over others.

    With the increasing number of mage-kin, Jenallia had found various reports of magical abilities she had never heard of. Seeking out rare individuals of different magical prowess, the four domains of magic were established- Mind, Body, Anchor, and Kinetic.

    In the years that followed, the wars began to die down as peaceful solutions were found. History records that Jenallia had continued to resent those of nonmagical descent, but that her disciples had forced her to end her various conquests.

    Five centuries have passed since Jenallia's empire was established, and while its borders have changed from the occasional war, it still remains as the only region where mage-kin are not resented and killed, and the largest empire in the world.

    In Jenallia's Wrath, you control Nytarra Mel, a young mage with a modest frame, brought to the Northern Institute to train and master her powers. Her reason for being there? A dark past, shrouded in lies, false memories, and conspiracies far and wide regarding the true nature of the mage-kin.

    FAQ

    Spoiler
    Q: Wait a second, if this game is about Nytarra, why is it called Jenallia's Wrath?

    A: You'll find out eventually



    Q: It says I'm missing a runtime package?

    A: http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/download/run-time-package Download the VX one



    Q: A Missing Music File is crashing my game! How do I fix this!?!?!?

    A: Copy/paste a music file from your folder, rename it to the missing music file. Go to an area where the music changes, and when you go back the problem will be resolved.



    Q: X is wrong, X needs to be fixed, X feels out of place!

    A: Thank you for informing me! I will do what I can to fix X. If X is fine, I will inform you and we can discuss this politely.



    Q: I think Nytarra should have sex with X

    A: I'm more than willing to come up with a scene where Nytarra has sex with X, Y, Z, and every other variable inbetween! Please ask me if I have current plans to make X sexable. If I don't, you're welcome to send in a short storyboard/script of how you think it'd play out and if it's reasonable I'm willing to add it and give you credit. Note that certain things such as jailbait and light bondage are fine, but that if it's too hardcore, it'll be an auto-no.



    Q: I want Nytarra to form a giant orgy/harem/etc.

    A: I won't say no, but I will tell you that it'll be the hardest thing to accomplish in-game. Most of the characters want a monogamous relationship with Nytarra, so forming any sort of sexual relation with more than one, let alone all the folks traveling with her will be very hard. Because I'm trying to make characters dynamic, you may be presented the option to break some characters, harden others to the harsh realities of life, but doing so might have its disadvantages in the story. (A Nytarra focused on sex/making her companions weaker mentally is less focused on her mission!)



    Q: Why isn't X a follower? I want X to be a follower

    A: Through the majority of the story, Nytarra isn't exactly looking to draw attention to herself, which is exactly what a large party would do. Not to mention each new party member is potentially four or more lines of dialogue per party-based conversation, not to mention when the party is grouped together for Nytarra to talk to them one-on-one. It'd be too much of a hassle and I'd be even more late on updates then I already am!



    Q: Hey! Why isn't there any pics to go along with the juicy bits!?

    A: Originally this game was designed as text-based H-scenes only, it's now going to be updated to include 3DCG, so just give me time to make them!



    Q: Hey! This isn't half bad! How do I get good with RPGmaker VX?

    A: I learned the basics of it from: http://www.rpgmakerweb.com/support/t...l/rpg-maker-vx The rest you have to figure out on your own or find guides for.



    Q: I spotted material that I own and/or someone I know owns and it wasn't given credit! How do I fix this/how do I get it removed?

    A: Well, I certainly hope you don't want it removed, but if you do I understand, lets discuss it if that's the case please! Otherwise, simply give me a shout if I forgot to give you credit! I find a lot of material on my phone when I'm just browsing around for fun, and when I do I typically derp and forget to write down the person's name for credit reasons... I'm sorry!!!

    I like it.

    The story is good. I like the options for dealing with your allies so far. Try to leave an option for close friends but not lovers though. Seemed like at the end a few of the conversations were, a) F*** You B) OK.... C) I LOVE YOU
    The option D) Yeah that does make you look good (in a non romantic way) would be even better.

    As for 3DCG, I like the idea in theory, but other games seem to fail in that department. Yes I like an uniform art direction and that makes 3DCG better that mix and match random art, but it can also look cheap if done poorly. IMO do not make the men featureless and incorporeal. It really looks cheap and generic when the male character is invisible, or translucent. More detail the better, heck Skyrim screenshots using sex plugins could generate some detailed 3DCG. Lesbian animations seem to be in short supply but there are a few and time will produce more. Oblivion has an even larger verity of animations which could be used to make good 3DCG but you would have take a hit on detail. Note that is what I would do, feel free to ignore me.

    I like the story so far. The rape that is told about your past is a great tool to make the player hate the headmaster, and also gives the player a framework to help role play.
    Really well done so far.

    The one sex scene I had was good. It was a nice and detailed lesbian scene that had options on how to react. Thumbs up man.


    I will await your next update.

      I'm just gonna say I don't approve of the 3dcg idea, I'd be surprised if I'm the only one who's fed up with seeing
      3dcg h-scenes in games. But I see how you wouldn't have much of a choice if you're not good at drawing or don't have
      anyone to help you there, 3dcg is just the easiest way.
      Going to try the game out eventually so I can't say anything about the content yet.

        I, on the other hand, kind of like 3dcg style. Definitely looks better to me than random set of pictures harvested over the net and allows developers who are not good at drawing, to set scenes exactly as they want. For example my favorite use of 3dcg is in RE:Anise (and other momota games).

          Maybe I'm rather alone with my opinion then but I definitely agree on the random harvested picture set, that is the worst thing you can do.

            3DCG is good once you've had some practice with posing, expressions, and framing screenshots. Otherwise there's a tendency to have it look like a diorama with a bunch of Barbie dolls standing around.
            I wish those who unsettle you would castrate themselves.

              Kyaann: No you're not alone...I'd rather it be like Zauber with animated h sprites...speaking of which was nice until the whole sex change part kicked in.....

              ....or pure text with random dialogue triggers based on the type of h scene......possible combo of the 2 could work also,say a themed pic for a an h action like missionary with random text followed by a 2nd and 3rd image which also have random text

                Your not alone Kyaann. *places hand on shoulder* I understand. I've done a bit of 3d art but it's still way better than anything I've ever completed so I can't really knock it. but I do understand where your coming from.

                  To an extent I agree with you. 3DCG is so EASY to get wrong, and most use things like 3D Custom Girl... I have yet to see a good picture with programs like that personally other than profile pictures. I guess I just do not like that art style.

                  I really think using something like Skyrim would produce more detailed pictures, and with mods you can get all shapes and sizes nowadays. WAY less control but they look good. Then again that is my preference and not sure if I am the only one.

                  I will state, I normally skip games that use 3D Custom Girl for H pics. Total turn off. Personally I would go without pictures rather than use 3D Custom Girl style.

                    I've still played games with the 3dcg images but it feels like i play for the story than the h content....and if i wanted to do that,heck i could just play any normal game...really the reason you play an h anything is for the h...be cool if someone made an rpg maker game like pokemon but hentai like

                      I'll see what I can do in that department, should be easy enough with some scenes, not so much with others, heh.

                      Glad to hear you enjoyed it! I want to form Nytarra as a character that, I suppose in DnD terms would be in the "good" alignment category, while giving the player the freedom to mold their own experience from that base with chances to go down a darker path (Purity/Corruption mechanic) opening up as the player continues their journey. I was hoping I wasn't being too cliche with that little flashback, but you hit it pretty spot on for its purpose.






                      As for 3DCG/H-scene image topic at hand, just going to address this to everyone instead of individual quotes... I originally was designing Jenallia's Wrath as a Story with H-elements, hence 90% of H-scenes were going to be directly tied to the plot, easily avoided, and text-based. The project has evolved from a game with H-elements to an H-game, but my goal is still the same; The game should be able to be played on its own H-scenes or no, with H-scenes as an added bonus/being easily avoided 98% of the time.

                      I'm still in the phase of getting down 3DCG before I consider it as a legitimate option because if I'm going to do something, I refuse to half-ass it. (Or if I do half-ass it, go back and fix it before release!)

                      Some other options I had considered were 3D Sex Villa (Didn't necesarily like it because the models fall in the uncanny valley for me, but it was something I could work with), or getting an artist for Hand/Flash drawn pictures. Even if an artist offered to help for free though, I would insist on paying them, and being the student that I am (and short on cash) that option is currently out of the question. I'd have to set up some sort of donation drive, which I really don't feel comfortable doing for a game I'm making in my free time for fun/people's enjoyment.

                      I'll look into the oblivion option since I have my old disk laying around somewhere... My whole philosophy is that H-scenes can look good with crummy pixels so long as the crummy pixels remind people that they're just that instead of trying to make themselves human-like... Which ends up putting them in that uncanny valley.

                      This is really good stuff for me to know though! I'm going to work on improving my 3DCG "skills" either way in case I ever do find a legit use for it. I'm thinking for the moment I might leave it as text-based until I have the time to get more personal input into the matter. Speaking of which, a poll on the blog might be good for that reason... I think I'll put one up here in the next hour or so.

                        I like your game And wish to see large freedom of actions. Like opportunity to join the bad guys etc.
                        And about graphics...f*ck the graphics For good story ain't need graphic. Just like game corruption of champions.
                        Many authors started to make their games with graphics and abandoned their projects after few months. I don't want you become one of them.

                          Note, my tastes might be in your uncanny valley. Stick with your gut and do what makes you enjoy your work. As others have said, if you do end up doing 3DCG and don't like it, then it might end up taking the rest of the work down.

                          Well I wanted to give an example from Skyrim
                          Spoiler

                          Here is your current Nytarra, tried to base it off that pic.
                          Nytarra


                          My quick attempt on Nytarra to give you what I envision in quality and detail.

                          Hmmm I made a quick sex pic of a scissoring sex scene but the lighting was terrible (to bright and bleached out), and not worth posting. Also I am to tired to log back in and try again. I can try again tomorrow if you are interested in the example. Like I said if this is what you consider uncanny valley then well you learned that this isn't a direction you want to go hehe.




                          Another idea about images are women's figures. Actually thinking about it, I don't remember you really talking about any of that in game anywhere. That works at the moment because there are no images so people imagine what they want but once there are images the imagination is lessened.
                          I would suggest verity rather than every single girl has a pornstar body with DD breasts. Make sure someone fills that nitch with a huge rack but if everyone is stacked then the large breasts no longer feel special. Also can draw in others preferences with verity but showing, well let say, young skinny chicks too.

                          Well guess I can call it there, bed awaits! Ulg work is in the AM.

                            Nytarra's generally good... Though she'll eventually be able to be corrupted to "Chaotic Neutral" heh.


                            I think I worded that graphics thing... Will address it down below.

                            I think I misworded that graphics thing... I think of things like this as falling in the corner edges of the uncanny valley. Skyrim generally uses decent textures, and won't hypertexturize something if it doesn't feel like it fits in, hence it doesn't fall in that zone. (Similarly 3DCG keeps a rather "doll-like" feel to it.)


                            Don't worry about giant breasts, my general philosophy is that "more than a handful is too much" so aside from the occasional character, the character's boobs will be in check. Similarly, I want their bodies to fit their characters. Sen is agile and flexible, but Nytarra (being a mage/partially a bookworm) would have a couple extra pounds to make her healthy looking rather than fit.

                            Spoiler
                            I'd say in terms of party members, Nytarra is a Low C, Lanae (being an elf) would probably be an A or B... I'm debating with Sen as she's very fit, but at the same time I envision her with a high C/low D.
