One last ToT Beta

The last few weeks for Tales of Thyilos has involved re-creating the database from scratch so there’s no more defaults, configuring a new battle system, and locating bugs and issues found by those who reported them in the previous Beta release.

But now as the new setup comes to a close, I’ll be able to issue one final Beta for the game, which on top of using the Tankentai Battle system; will also have all the new abilities added and new in game menu to replace the one that was causing issues in the previous Beta releases. The current one shouldn’t cause any more trouble, and though I did like the previous menu design, I do quite like the new one and it’s given a couple new options to the menu’s design.

I’ll aim to put up the final Beta release by the end of this week, and try and schedule the Full Demo to come sometime in May (preferably).

On a different matter, previously I’d been using Livestream to do recordings, but lately my own internet has been screwing up and until its fixed it’s too going too slow to bother with a Livestream. But I may be able to coax one of the other member’s into giving it a go, so stay tuned for that. ūüėČ

ToT Beta Vr0.5 and tester lookout (edit – Link is now Vr 0.5.2)

After a long day and night of debugging and narrative scripting, I’ve put out the fifth release of the Beta demo.

<Link here>

Version 5 now lets you go explore Chipadin, but as of yet, the Inn isn’t¬†accessible¬†as it requires a lot of detail to go into it. ¬†Kinda like what I’m going with the Brimming Mug over in Verdok.
But the narrative behind each character in your party is also coming together, and as the game progresses you can talk to them and start to learn more.
The game guide also now comes as an actual booklet, instead of a text document.

But now, onto a very important manner. I can’t exactly blame anyone else but myself for overlooking issues, but in the Version 4 Release, there was a bug that prevented people from going further than Myradin. This was during the first Stand Alone release, and one single item that was missed out of the hundreds caused the issue. It’s fixed now though.
So I’m looking for people who really would like to get a chance to have their hands first on the Beta Release. It’s going to be a while before I can drop in Vr 0.6, and just as long after when the Full Demo is meant to be released. But to ensure no stuff-ups that only get found out 2 weeks later occur again, I need interested applicants.
Of course, as the game has no intention on turning a profit, there’s no money to go around. So Offical Testers reward comes with whatever else I can think of, and a mention in the credits.
So, if you’re interested in getting your hands a on Beta Release 6 before the public, slip me an e-mail at smeadth.studiowisp@gmail.com

 

Nooowww onto a different topic.
Since LF went and got it’s own domain name, we’ve started to go on and create new pages, which so far are empty. But, rest assured that there’ll be plenty of material in there soon! The pages listed in that section are the only ones¬†officially¬†planned for now, but I’m still looking into Livestreaming. Not sure what I’d do if I had an open channel going, but I’ll figure it out. Maybe exclusive live stream of game being developed right before the audiences eyes? (I think I can do that under such pressure. Probably be a great motivator!)

As for anything else… well, we can’t think of anything for now! But we’ll let you know. ūüėČ

Lastly, before I leave, Rose Reveries up a week ago over on one of the forums she updates Keepers of Time on, about voice casting. Visit this link here to take a look at that recent update, or, wait patiently for me to nag her to post up here. Which ever suits you best.

Till next time!

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!!
-LINK-
(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.

BETA Release for Tales of Thyilos

The BETA Demo for Tales of Thyilos: Heroes of the Four Kingdoms will be released this month! At the rate its going, it’ll probably be on the 30th, which is still fortunately within the timeline I scheduled it!

And exclusive download of the BETA version for the Thyilosian Lore book will be included, which will have all the background behind the world the game is set on, and perhaps even help with a little secrets otherwise left hidden! This book when finished will be fully released as a free e-book or in the least a PDF. If it can be done, limited hard-copies of the book will be released.
