Machine Made considering becoming a series -- introducing "Rebirth"

We've had some conversations about this project, and we have a strong impression that there could be a sequel or two in the making after the first "Machine Made" game. As the lead developer, I think the potential is there and I would love to see it happen. The first game will be called "Rebirth" -- which is essentially the thematic center of this game. What this means narrative-wise is that "Rebirth" will have a stronger focus on the two main characters and their story, their romantic interest and their respective journey, whereas the treatment of other characters will be sub-plots or narrative material to be explored in the sequels. Don't worry -- each character still has a backstory to explore and unfold, and will most likely feature as a main character in part II or part III!

TENEBRIS

                     TENEBRIS

 

 

 

"Ṣe òkunkun ya ọkàn rẹ,

eleri,
le ni Dark Oluwa gba yi ẹbọ ...
Ati ki o purify aye pẹlu rẹ ṣiṣe itọju òkunkun ..
"

 

                                                                       The Dark Council's Ancient Summoning Ritual

 

 

THE STORY

 

"The Hellgates are opened by the Dark Lord's troops! All Guardians! Retreat!"

      Captain Wolfblade's last words

 

 

The Hellgates were sieged by the Dark Lord's troops,all the Guardians were commanded to retreat,but I fought bravely by the side of Captain Wolfblade along with my friend Jorgensen.

I can recall the feeling when my chest was pierced by a sword...And as the soul left my body,I wanted to take it back,to,kill the Dark Council...And interrupt the ritual...But all hope is lost when I was dropped by a portal into a purple skied sandy desert.I'm doomed to be the reason why the Dark Lord was summoned...How can I stop this? I think I have a second chance,to be dropped in this world,and I need to kill the Dark Council...I need to kill the Dark Council...Kill the Dark...Kill the...Kill...Kill..KILL!

      Guardian Whitebeard's monologue while in the Soul Prison Desert

 

LORE

 

"Well you're in the Soul Prison Desert.In the "town" of Kytre.Unintelligible name,but it's a pretty quiet village"

      Rystel Shadowblade's "location description"

 

HELLGATES

 

They separate between the two worlds.They've fallen under the strength of the Hellspawns,The Dark Lord's army.

 

SOUL PRISON

 

It's the place where the sacrificed souls are imprisoned and consumed by the Dark Lord to aid his summoning.It is said that the souls of the people imprisoned here descend to madness...

 

DARK COUNCIL

 

It is the Dark Lord's hands in the human world.They are trying to summon him and "purify' the world in his darkness.

 

THE DARK LORD

 

The ultimate evil overlord.He commands an army of Hellspawns made from volcanic rocks and ashes.He attempts to conquer the human world and expand his territory.

 

 

PLANNED FEATURES

 

"Yes it's planned features not features"

                 Ultim1337Gamer,Project Lead

 

  • Hub Like : That means it's not open world and story focused.But you can still wander around the area.
  • Descent to Madness : The longer you stay in the Soul Prison,the more it controls you and the Dark Lord's influence over you increases.Not every playthrough will be always the same quests and scenario.The story missions change while you descend to madness
  • Crafting : Not sure about this one,but you can still craft money from the blood of your fallen enemies

More Soon...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

P.S : As I said,this game is still very very early in dev and in the planning stage.So I cannot provide screenshots or anything until I start the real stuff.

 

THANKS 4 READING !

My life fell to rubble,and I built it back : The reason for my inactivity

Are you curious of why I was inactive for such a very long time? Well,IRL problems.

 

I tell you this because I trust you guys,it's like you're all bros and sisters to me...And I'm serious...

 

 

In the final days of my activity,I was busy with school stuff..And I had a girlfriend shortly after September,my life was happy,and great...

 

Until...The "incident" or more accurately,the "incidents"

 

My parents were separated

My brother went to another city to study

I was alone...

 

All I had was my desk,and my dear girlfriend,whose smile motivated me to try more and be patient...Until late February.

 

I was hit by a strange illness.I skipped school for 3 weeks while going from time to time to pickup some homework and do some lessons...In that period,while I was stuck in bed,my girlfriend met up with another guy who was...(sigh)...my best (male) friend.When I recovered in early March,I began to feel that she was ignoring me,talking and joking with him more...Is that what 9 months means to her ?!...I felt...weak and...then all I had now was my papers,my desk and my console.This month,she began to hate him,and turn to me more...And as he began to gain her interest,he tried in vain to impress...When I thought all hope was lost,my parents got back together,because of me...My brother visisted more often,because of me...And my "best friend" became cruel,and he started to disturb my ex gf by taking her school stuff and playing with it,and he's gone as far to impress her than showing his (inexistant) muscles and slamming her (female) friend without knowing that she was her friend...When he talks to her,she dumps him and turns to me...

 

I got my girlfriend back.

I recovered from a dangerous illness

I got my parents back together

I made my brother visit more often

 

 

...And that's how I rebuilt my life.

 

Thanks for reading

GTA V PC (Thoughts ?)

Well,I was informed that the official GTA V release will be tommorow.

 

And the beast is 1080p 4K quality and weights a whopping 65 GB....

 

And the physical copy contains...(sigh)...7 installation discs.

 

That's a monster we got there!

 

 

Share your thoughts :3

Custom Battle System Request

The main party will consist of 3 characters. The main objective of the battle system is to input different elements and item components together to create your attack or item. I also need to hide the commands, the command window and the status window. The main three elements being fire, water, and earth. Also there are secondary elements that can be made when combing the base element here a list of them: fire+water=steam  fire+earth=lava  earth+water=ice  fire+earth+water= life force (ultimate element in game). You also have to combine items by using a bottle and various ingredient items to create the main item you are going to use. To make the controls more streamline you toggle through your elements and ingredient items by pressing the up and down arrows. The elements and the bottle have levels which determine its strength, you have to toggle through with the right and left keys.  There is also a timer so the player has to think on their feet however, you can access the combos you have learned through an item or reaching a certain level.

 

 The Z key is to confirm your decision, X is to cancel, R is to access the combos you have learned, D is to use the guard command and V is to escape battle. There is also an AP system so the player doesn't use powerful attacks all the time without consequence. The Max total of AP you can gain is 18 and the player starts with 9 at the start of battle. The elements consume AP based on what level they are, each element starts at 1 and ends at 3.  You regenerate 3 AP after that certain character's turn has ended. If a character has 0 AP there turn is skipped however, they regenerate 3 AP once their turn has been skipped. Here's a list of how AP is consumed.

Lv. 1 Magic = 1AP (can be put in all three input slots)

Lv. 2 Magic = 2AP (can be put in all three input slots)

Lv. 3 Magic = 3AP (can be put in all three input slots)

Bottle(can only be used in the first input)   Bottle Lv. 1 = 2 AP   Bottle Lv. 2 = 3AP   Bottle   Lv. 3 = 4AP

Tonic (can only be used in the second and third input)

Healing Powder (can only be used in the second and third input)

Sacred Ash (can only be used in the second and third input)

Defend = 1 AP, turn ends after you use this command

Escape = 0 AP, uses the escape command

 

If you are interested reply to this topic and I will give you all the possible combo that can be performed with the elements and items. Also thanks for taking the time to read this. Payment is negotiable.

 

The only script I am using is MoonPearl's Interactive Party script. I am also going to attach a thumbnail on how I want the battle screen to look like.

[RMXP][DEMO 0.1] Echoes of time

Echoes of Time

An RMXP game with a kind of cliché story

[hr]

"Tenebris, pavorem faciam infirma...

Tenebris, lux fortis, lumen e sapiens...

Tenebris, vos animas succumbant...

Tenebris, lumen quod excaecat consumet infirma..."

                                                                             - Fragment of the Song of the Dark Mages

 

Background Story
 
You're settled in a magical and ethereal world, to be most exactly, you're in the country of Bellugia, where the wisest mages and the strongest warriors are raised for the good of the world. This colorful country is the stage of many miraculous events, being one of them the origin of magic, wihich happened lots of eons ago. Also, the most horrorful battles also took Bellugia as stage, causing many deaths, destructions and reforms. 3 millions of years ago, Ahrion, the god of darkness, corrupted by the evil naure of the element he wields, betrayed the gods. His thirst of power led him to take the throne of the Potestes by killing Redeum, the leader of the gods, thus causing a big disorder in the universe, being reshaped to it's distorted image and likeness. The men and the gods, in an unbreakable alliance, managed to defeat Ahrion's kingdom of shadows, which lead to the signing of The Underworld Treaty.
Ahrion was condemned to the Underworld for the rest of the eternity, and men finally lived in peace. The throne of the Potestes was taken by Lucena, daughter of Redeum.
Everything was peace in the world, until... (the rest of the pages are broken)
 
The Present
 
Today is the Light Fest, the most important celebration in Bellugia's cult, when all the people in the country go to the capital to worship their deitys and witness the king's offering to the holy statue, which grants a propspeous future to the kingdom.
Arshes and Alice have to go walking from the Shalok Village to Vahnra, because Arshes woke up late and there are no dragons left to the capital of Bellugia. After a really long and tough walk they arrived, and in a wink the Light fest begins, but what they don't know is that this year's one, will fatally end, taking t
hem to a mission to save the world of the clutches of the dark. Does that mean that the will of an evil being is taking the world to succumb in the shadows once more?
 
18 years before...
 
"The War of Shadows has ended with the sacrifice of my good friend Rodrik to seal Ahrion in a crystal prison with an ancient spell, The Seal of Thanatos. I'm stuck here in Tasmir after my mission ended, maybe for the rest of my life. It's a pity that Rodrik left his wife, my sister, pregnant of twins, a boy and a girl, my nephews. 8 years after that event, I saw what they are capable of, maybe they will save the world. I can see it... "



                                                                                                 - Fragment of Devon's diary

 
Playable Characters:
 
Arshes
Class: Fighter
Likes: Showing his strenght, dating women (and being slapped for that)
Hates: Being teased by his sister, ghouls,
Description: You guessed right, the red-haired guy form the RMP RTP. He is a really strong warrior and quite good at magic (not like his sister) . It's kind of lazy and selfish sometimes, but he is the best in dangerous situations. He uses swords as his principal weapon.
 
Alice
Class: Sorceress
Likes: reading books of magic, teasing his brother.
Hates: Roses, frogs, romantic novels.
Description: It's a very talented sorceress, but is sometimes clumsy with new spells. She is Arshes' sister, and enjoys picking on his brother. She is very passionate about magic, often exchanging her more precious objects (or his brother's objects) for a rare artifact. She uses staves as her principal weapon

Pain
Class: Demon Mage
