Description
Celia's Quest

This is a story of a beginning. This is a story of a girl's journey to save her friend, prove herself, and maybe kick some bandit butt while doing so. This is the story of the birth of a heroine the world has never seen before. This is the story of Celia's first quest.

Not long after Celia leaves her home to go on an adventure (and maybe, just maybe, to avoid getting married to Ced the creep) she finds herself in the village of Villageville, where she meets another runaway. Just as they are deciding to go search for adventure together, a group of remarkably rude bandits show up and kidnap Celia's new friend! Now it's up to Celia to save her friend, prove herself to the villagers in Villageville, and beat up all kinds of strange creatures living in the Valley.

Brawl, bomb and magic your way through hordes of enemies ranging from the almost-peaceful Angry Shrooms to the devastating Dragon Dragon! Meet new friends and companions like Guy the almighty fairy, an old man that's absolutely not a retired hero, pirates, bandits and an immortal mouth in a jar! Beat up monsters until they cry and turn those tears into potions! The possibilities aren't exactly endless, but there's a lot of them! Go forth, and above all else, please enjoy Celia's Quest!

Features

The nitty gritty

Celia's Quest is a JRPG made in RPGMaker VX Ace with heavy emphasis on exploration and puzzle solving rather than grinding and leveling up. Forgoing classic level-up systems, Celia's Quest delivers player progression through Powerups spread throughout the world. This way the player is rewarded for exploring and solving puzzles rather than being patient. Celia's Quest focuses on enjoyment rather than an epic storyline or super dramatic monologues, and shies away from anything close to mature or grimdark. It is, simply put, a fairy tale. This fairy tale has many humorous moments and though it gets serious at times it's more of a comedy than a drama. Characters are over the top, enemies are silly and the world kind of makes sense... sometimes. Did you know dungeon waters are deeper than regular water? Did you also know that this is why dungeon water chooses to only reflect more profound things, such as stars?

Anyway, this is a one person project that's been in the works for a little more than a year. I am truly proud of what I've created, and I hope you'll be interested enough in playing it that it can make it through Greenlight. If that happens, I sincerely wish you a great time playing through Celia's Quest.

Thanks,
J

I see some good and bad things in this one; I do appreciate the effort put into tileset and avatar edits, as well as the original drawings and the world map. I also like the music. However, it seems that interface design didn't get as much love -- the color choices are a bit off in my opinion (remember readability!) and I can't understand why the HP etc. bars (from the battle script used) were not modified to suit this game better visually. As for mapping itself, it could benefit from the kind of assymmetry seen in the 'forest' shot (especially height variation with the cliffs) -- as it stands, mapping looks very standard. Lastly, a more memorable title could make this game more memorable as well.. For the love of bunnies, people, stop ending game names with 'quest'!

As it stands, I might be interested in playing it through one day but for me it still doesn't differentiate itself enough from the rest.

Thank you so much for the votes, guys! We're currently 30% away from breaking into the top 100, and it couldn't be done without you! Keep this up and we'll be Greenlit in no time!
