I'm currently the only one undertaking this task, so don't expect much but a good story
and some character you'd probably cry with.
What it doesn't have:
Sadly, no Anime cutscenes... I wanted to but... I can't imagine making it anime cutscenes...
I can draw, but i can't animate :O
No sideview battle system... it's a pain in the butt to find sprites for the characters, that's all
No Voice over's.... Because I don't have 50 different voices
hmm... that's about everything it doesn't have.
What it does have:
regular cutscenes, the ones with the character sprites.... I think you know what i mean.
Faces in message boxes... so you actually know what they look like other than pixelated
characters on the map (all graphics resources other than the Lunar 3 Logo and Title image
are courtesy of those in rpgrevolution.com)
Front-view Battle system... I personally am appalled by it...
it has text?
It has a few of the icons from the Lunar series, as well as the sound effects!
that's pretty much NOT it hehe.... here come the previews...
this was an old poster I made for an older version of the game... before my computer
flopped. It was called fragments of a Memory... but I rewrote that to fragments of the past...
I still like the color contrasts
These are images from the previous version I was working on, that failed because the maker
was as much of a flop as a dead computer... but still okay.
and here's the story:
two years After the Events in Lunar: Eternal Blue, the Blue star became a habitable place once more in regions where the snow had melted just enough to give way to seedlings. Fresh water was all around from the melting snow. ponds first formed, then lakes, the snow slowly revealing fertile volcanic soil, where the first two settlers have taken it to their duty to bring green life into this world. years passed, eventually, the snow had melted enough for ponds, and lakes to form a larger body of water, the Oceans. the Blue Star was shedding its cold layer, to reveal the beauty that was once homeworld to the Humans. But, along with the beauty that was revealed from beneath the snow, a dark and ancient Secret also lurked deep under the snow, only known to Lucia and Hiro, the first two settlers to call the Blue Star their home. Lucia sealed away this dark force in a void behind the doors of a mountain fortress, knowing it was all too well indestructible, even for her, the new Goddess of the Blue Star. Time passed, eventually bringing the people of Lunar to their original world of the Blue Star, keeping the dark entity that lurked within the Void a secret.
Lucia and Hiro, to their disdain, had a daughter. Lucia knew all too well that when her first daughter would be born, the Void behind the doors of the Fortress would hinder in power, thus putting the Blue Star on the fine line between peace, and oblivion, the only way to save the Blue Star, was to sacrifice their Daughter, for the greater good, but neither Hiro, nor Lucia could bring themselves to take the life of their daughter, Emma,
and lived with the key to destruction for thirteen years. Until the time of the first Eternal Twilight came on her 13th birthday. The night sky became Blood red as Lunar, the second home of Humans, turned Crimson red, to a red hot, as it slowly became an inferno in the night sky. The abundant Lunar was nothing more than a wasteland of ashes, those few that survived, died soon after, the atmosphere and all necessities for life, evaporated along with many loved ones. Lucia, and Hiro mourned for the loss of all those who stayed on Lunar, and the loss of such a beautiful and adventurous love for life that made it so worthwhile in staying. as the days progressed from then on, life on the Blue Star became tenuous, and life threatening. Emma, knowing the story of the Void Behind the Door well, took it into her hands and did the most selfless act imaginable, and sealed herself away, high in the Althenian Mountains to the East of her home, leaving only a note of what will become of her. Years passed, the world was at peace once more, and Hiro and Lucia were soon expecting twin boys, telling them stories of their older sister and her act to save the Blue Star. Everything was as it would have been on their now deceased prior home, Lunar. Children are born and raised, move on to make friends, and families of their own, and eventually come to pass. Hiro dies on his death bed from old age a hundred years after, Lucia only able to watch in mourning, dies soon after from a broken heart, willing her power to her daughter, to uphold the stability of the Void. Thousands of year pass, and the world is under rule of the descendants of Lucia and Hiro, but however, the bloodline seems to have disappeared as the Lucian family tore apart, only reemerging a hundred years prior. now is when the search for the truth behind the Lucian Family, the frozen Tomb in the Althenian mountains, and a family curse begin
one more thing I have two videos on these games, First version of the gamehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vjvq8nvQ1aU
Second version of the gamehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Sn4tyQAyE8w
As soon as i've completed more on the third version... i'll make a video and post it... until then, Althena be with you XD
EDIT: One more thing, I'll appreciate any help I can get from fellow Lunatics (hehe)
if it leads to this project's completion, I'm not begging, but if you can
find me more Lunar Sound effects or anything of the like, it'd be great!
(on the other hand, original artwork for the face graphics and battle pictures
will definitely be a plus XD ) Thanks if any!
