Tales of Thyilos, Stand-alone Beta Demo Version

To compensate for the possability of the previous version not working on some Windows OS’s, the game has been compiled into a Stand-Alone. Normally, we wouldn’t have done this until the full demo came out (which will be in about 3 months, we think), but we can’t leave people out of being able to take part in playing the Beta, so this version ensures that it can run on any Windows OS (that we are aware of so far), with any issues.

We’re not sure why it didn’t work on some systems though. The only guess was that perhaps the XP RTP didn’t work on them? So now that’s not needed to rule that problem out. If the game still doesn’t run on your OS, can you please help us out by e-mailing me with the details of the problem, and details of your system. You can screenshot the problem if you wish as well.

Included in this version there is:
-Stand-alone version of the game
-Alpha version of Thyilosian Lore (in which I have someone to help proof read and give me a hand with making things all fit nicely without holes)
-Installation and Game Controls guide (which is just a .txt file at the moment)

Included as new features, there is now a constant MP Regen at the end of your turn during battle; some more spelling fixes; and a new quick to do quest.

Coming in the next Beta Release there will be:
-Characters in your party will appear in Inns you visit. You can talk to them and as the game progresses more dialogue will unlock, eventually leading up to a unique quest.
-A gambling den in Verdok where you can play some high stake games to earn extra coin (so I guess this game really is rated Mature now)
-A Guild House where you can undertake either a monster hunting job, or, a specific task, like helping suppress bandits at a high risk, for good money.
-More unique skills for characters that will level up over time as they are used. (at the moment, Jaden has one of these skills. I’m give the skill more levels and adjust the use distance between the levelling, such s maybe start at 5, then 10, then 20, etc.)

Hope you all can enjoy what there is in the game, and we look forward to any feedback. 🙂

Tales of Thyilos – Public beta demo

The Beta Demo for ToT has arrived. This public Beta is to allow, well, the Public to take a look at the game, outside of the testing group. Of course there’s still the possible error and odd finish that is clearly unfinished, but, the other part is there and that’s hopefully over an hours worth, which is pretty good for a Beta Demo I think. In the next month, a FULL Demo will be released, but between here and now, the public may play this and have the chance to take art in a rather critical part of the games development! Which as the head developer of the game, I think that’s pretty important since in the end this game isn’t just for me to get a story, or for our artists to get their work more open, but so that the public can enjoy a game and get somewhat immersed in a world other than their own.

So, without further rambling on, here is the Beta Demo!!

(note: there’s been a problem with the customised configuration not going across via the engine’s settings. Go figure! Needless to say, we need to either configure everything to the game default, or, find a script. Until then, we apologise, but you’ll have to manually configure the keys to fit this image provided. You can access the keyboard config by hitting F1.)

Unfortunately, the Thyilosian Lore Book is currently unavailable. Story is a priority, so a document that is relevant as such is VERY important. So the Beta version of the book that I promise will become available within two weeks, which will include original concept art, and a painted version of the Four Kingdoms; as well as information about the world of Thyilos you would not have otherwise discovered.

NOTICE!! To ensure a safe download ONLY download via the link I provided, or, via a link on RPG Revolution, or Studiowisp.com, or blacknekosstudios/planetindie

Seriosuly, if you see it anywhere else, report it, because it IS a fake.

Art for Bruce and Carol, Tales of Thyilos

Our artist has finished some more concept art, so now you can take a looky at two of the other main characters in Tales of Thyilos. This time it’s the ex pirate, martial artist, and lover of a good drink, Bruce.

Follow by the beautiful, powerful magic wielding and just as deadly with a bow, Carol.
