An Iced Fairy's Frolic - A Story in RPG Form
« on: April 29, 2013, 09:08:04 pm »


Good day, internet! I come to you today bearing a bizarre yet wonderful gift!

Some of you may be aware that I was down in London this weekend for a job interview. I had a lot of downtime and an internet connection that was dotty at best, so I decided to make the most of the time by putting together a little project in RPG Maker. This is the result - a little PSL story in an unusual format, which should hopefully interest and entertain. Starring our very own Iced Fairy!

This game does contain minor spoilers for my big series Dolphin Rider Koishi, though this consists mainly of the identities of the first four Sirens. This shouldn't apply to many people, since I figure everyone who's interested in DRK would have read it by now and everyone who isn't won't be upset by this. :V

The game itself can be found here. In order to run it you'll also need the RPG Maker VX Ace Runtime Package, which can be downloaded for free here.

Hope this little experiment manages to bring about some smiles. :D

I must say, that was both fun and amusing!

I'd love to see something like this again.

Apparently, Thomas the Tank Engine isn't one to take crap from anyone.

I'm quite intrigued by this concept. I will unfortunately have to wait a bit before I can try it out, as I'm currently drowning in finals.
Still, I'm surprised you can get around with RPG Maker, Rou. Have you done this more often?

I have to say, this was rather fun to run around in. The story was cute, and the fights were fun, minus the part where every boss fight's strategy wound up being the same.  I kinda liked Mysterious Jack's gimmick though.  Reminded me of something from a certain well-known doujin game.  Only fight I lost was the one against Dolphin Rider Koishi and that was simply due to having been silly and using up all my Machinas before then.  Once Iced fell it was all over, doubly so once I only had one party member since it was literally impossible to win.

All in all, 5/5, would play another such thing.

Not really, but considering I am majoring in programming I found it relatively easy to work with. :P

If I ever make another one of these I'll try to make the boss fights more diverse. I was happy with the boss gimmicks but JQ's right in that all the fights boiled down to the same strat. Something to consider, I guess.

Yeah ... it also felt like the recovery items I had by level 9 and 10 weren't strong enough to be useful. Of course, it was a really short game, but still.

Also there needed some kind of instant-recover-HP-and-MP before bossfights. It also felt kinda wonky that there were no enemies between the penultimate boss and the final boss, even though the latter was in an entirely new area, but I guess I was moderately overlevelled anyway.

Download is not accessible.
1CCs: None in a full game, although I got a one credit clear on EoSD easy, but it was invalidated because of the insane lag that I had on that run. I have also 1CC'd the HSiFS trial.
