Hello everyone! My name is Bradley Elam and I am an Indie developer from Texas. My game, Hoven the Sages Spinel, is a fantasy RPG created using the RPG maker VX Ace program. It took around 10 months of work to finish or around 1500 hours. It is a completely original story created by me. This game was also featured at SGC 2014 (ScrewAttack Gaming Convention) in their Indie Heaven area! I recieved many good reviews and even had famous gamers like Matpat and ScrewAttack's very own Sean Hinz play it!
I hope you consider thumbs uping Hoven! Thank you all!

How Long is Hoven? Answer: Between 10 and 13 hours of gameplay depending on you and your style of play.

How much does it cost? Answer: A great price of $2.99!

What is your inspiration? Answer: I have always loved a goodstory and RPGs, growing up I played such titles as Legend of Zelda, the Tales series, Final Fantasy, and Gauntlet games! So I have pretty solid ground.

Can it be played with a controller? Answer: Yes it can! Hoven the Sages Spinel is 100% Dual-shock 4 compatible! You need only plug in the controller before starting up the game!

On a scale of 1-10, what would be the difficulty? Answer: I'd say about a 6 or so, it's not to hard, but not all that easy either.

What are the controls? Answer: For the keyboard: Arrow keys = walking, Space bar = confirm, Esc./0 = menu/cancel.
For the Dual-shock 4: Left-analog stick = walking, O = confirm, X = menu/cancel.

@GVPX There was only about 1 min. of a 10+ hour story shown, and that is only a guess. There are multiple secretys and the map is on a 8x zoom out scale its quite large actually.

The map layout (demonstrated on the last screen) is what led me to say no. A bunch of odd box like islands with way too much water and a very separated landscape that looks completely un-natural.

If your inspiration is FF then go google FF1-6 maps and learn how a map should be done. For something with 1500 hours of work on probably the easiest engine out there I would expect a lot more. The story sounds like something that has been done 100 times over.

hope you actually add what the story is about as it'll be the main way of attracting votes/etc.
