This version is windows-only for the moment, unfortunately.
I really want to finish the RPG Maker version.
I spent the tail-end of last week playing through the old chapter seven release with Unxnown. Even with no battles it took us several nights to finish. I got some general thoughts and feedback on the project. Now I have a clearer picture on what cutscenes will be revised. (I’m trying to minimize the amount of cutscenes to completely redo in favor of just switching up dialogue.) I’ll have to document my findings while they’re fresh in my mind.
Regarding the rpg maker re-release version, I wrote up the dialogue for revised chapter 2 introduction and implemented the first (of three) scenes. Again it’s different so I have no idea what people will think.
I AM HUMBLED AND GRATEFUL. Seriously, thanks for your kind words. They motivate me a bunch, especially when I look back 4-5 years and realize how much I disliked my older work, it’s wonderful that people enjoy it.
Hello DHM, i a big fan of Starless Umbra, and i played this game for many times, many things in this game game me inspiration to develop games, really. Back then when i played Starless Umbra games, i remember a diferent soundtrack and a bigger gameplay, i remember when [spoilers], i remember the sideview scrolling battle, the horse escape part, the diving system(great), i’t was really fun! Now i play this demo version and the [Demo] ends very soon, did you deleted those parts that i miss?
First off — I’m really happy that I inspired you! Secondly, fear not! I haven’t deleted those parts. The problem with SU is the first half of the game doesn’t really match with the second half of the game. This is my fault due to poor planning. So what I’m doing is re-releasing all the chapters with improved quality all around. To be honest I wasn’t happy with the older versions and I am capable of creating something better, so I set off to re-do the parts I was unhappy with. It’s taking much more time than anticipated but it’s by no means deleted or canceled. Keep in touch, and thank you again for the kind words.
Never updated the page but both downloads should grab the latest version. (The readme will have the version number.)
There are 9 total chapters. 7/9 are complete; however, chapters 2 and 3 need a little bit of reworking so they are in-line with the updates I’ve made to the game storyline. The timescale I have no idea. I just develop as I can when I can. (I’m currently planning things so there’s not a lot of movement.)
Yep! I will certainly write one as I have for the old versions of the game.
That shouldn’t happen. Do you know what the error said? Also, the common problems and solutions addendum here may help you:
I need to re-do a lot of cutscenes in chapter two and a few in chapter three. However, four - seven are done and eight is in-progress. There are nine chapters in total, so while it sort of seems almost done I can’t really give any date with any sort of confidence.
The download is available on the site. I’ll release the open, rm2k3 version after the game is 100% complete. :)
