    Is this game only for phones? Will there be a browser version?

      I just got back to working on the project. I was too busy with school to do much work on the game. I would say about 1/15 of the game is actually completed. The demo doesn't feature the updated battle system. Hopefully I will have a new and longer demo available in the next few months.    Thanks for spreading the word!
  4.   You need to play more RPGs     I have played many RPGs such as Final Fantasy games, MegaMan X Command Mission, Paper Mario, Super Mario Legend of The Seven Stars, Golden Sun, etc.
  5. I don't understand why you have a problem with the battle system. Most RPG games in general use a very similar battle system with minor differences. 
  6. Actually events are "drag and drop" with the hardest aspect being :trying to figure out how many enemies are going to pop out, which map to transition to, or which switches to activate.    Last time I used RPG maker, it was EXTREMELY restrictive on what you could do. * You want a "kill count" for a specific monster ? - too bad, even hacking the game engine produces buggy results! * You want custom scripts ? - have fun trying to integrate them ! * Want real time combat ? - hahahahahahaha * You want a custom opining title ? - have fun hacking the game engine! * Want a lot of different monsters, events, or switches ? - too bad, there is a hard coded limit, and it's small [*1] ! * Want to use lot of different tile sets ? - oh well, too bad your restricted to a tiny handful of tiles for your entire game !   *1 -  I ran out of switches after 3 small maps !     I respectfully disagree about events being drag and drop.   What maker did you use? The only legal American versions are XP, VX, and VX ACE. All of them allow you to change tile sets. Many games have costume opening titles. These three latest versions allow users to create and install custom scripts. 
  7.   I agree there are many games that use the same default graphics. However, users can create their very own graphics or hire someone in the community to create the graphics.   Surprisingly there are some games with voice overs. That's right! There are games with voice actors.    There are many different battle systems in the community. Most games have a turn based on system. However, not all of the systems are the same. See the videos below. These videos are for the RPG Maker VX ACE. These are just a few of the different battle systems that have been made by users for the program.    Default Battle System-    Victor Battle System-    Battle Engine Symphony!-    Sapphire Action System IV-    That's not  true at all. There are many experienced programmers, composers, artist, and designers who use the RPG Maker. There are some users who create their own graphics for their games. Many members of the community create new battle systems, menu systems, add-ons, etc.    The system isn't completely drag and drop. The only drag and drop feature is the mapping system. You must understand how to use the program's features for creating events. Eventing isn't drag and drop. It is a complex feature that a player uses to create cut scenes, unlock new areas, continue the game's story, etc. Eventing can take hours.      I strongly agree with your point of view. I've seen many terrible game videos on YouTube. Some games should have never been created. The bad games give the community and the program a very bad reputation. 
  8. I've been a member in the RPG Maker community for 4 or 5 years. The community strongly believes that people especially game designers and players look down at RPG Maker games. Why do game designers and players look down on RPG Maker games?    I've heard many stories with players becoming upset because a RPG Maker game is for sale instead of for free. These players do not believe designers who use the program should sale their games.    Do people think the RPG Maker is a walk in the park? It takes alot of hard work to make a game with the RPG Maker. Sure, there are alot of things done for you. However, you must put it all together. That will take hours of making maps, characters, cut scenes, boss battles, etc.

      Story 1000 years ago a world war known as The Great War took place. The world was once a peaceful place. People lived together in peace. They worked with one another for the better of the world. However over time people began to change. People started to have different views of the world. People did not accept the differences of other people. This led to the Great War. Many lives were lost in battle. A great power was created by the Dragon Wizards. The original purpose of this great power was made to restore the nature that was destroyed during The Great War. The power is strong enough to destroy the galaxy. No man has ever wielded such power. Since that time peace has been achieved. After the war, people who shared common interest formed nations. Many nations work side by side continue the peace on Earth. Neon was once a peaceful nation; it is the largest nation on Earth. 100 years ago a man known as Gauchet would rebel against his own nation, Neon. A nation that he once defended as a high classed knight became his foe. Gauchet attempted to overthrow the king as he believed he should be worshiped and treated as a God for his great deeds as a soldier. His attempt failed and he was banished from the nation. Many people did not understand why Gauchet changed into a power hungry man. Three years later Gauchet made his return. He led an evil army to rule the land. In the present time Gauchet has prepared his forces to rule over Earth. Gauchet’s four generals have gathered the resources to start a new Great War. Some nations have fallen to Gauchet’s might while others are barely holding a fight. Now the Dark Army has it sights on Romanica.
