Cutscenes.

I’ve started using panel-based images to showcase the major scenes in the game, and I’ve divided them up so far into 5 major scenes that appear in Chapters 1 and 2.

Scene 1: Foreboding
Scene 2: Fear
Scene 3: Regret
Scene 4: Anger
Scene 5: Revelation

Example of the first cutscene in the game.

Interesting bit of trivia regarding the game’s name: Enelysion is Greek for ‘lightning-struck’ – symbolic of calamity and disaster in Tarot card reading. If you’ve read Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince, it would probably make more sense. ^^

More character tropes!

What’s this?

So, my first post on WordPress, as well as the first post for the Unofficial site of the indie-RPG Enelysion. I go by the name of Luchino-chan over at rpgmakervx.net, a site dedicated to the creation of RPGs made with this hobby engine.

Some of you are probably wondering what this is. For those of you who are already acqainted with RPGMaker VX, please forgive me. Basically, RMVX is an engine that allows you to create classic RPGs in the same vein as the 16-bit ‘Golden Age’ (late 80s to early 90s) of games, where the characters and story were far more important than flashy graphics or advanced systems of today’s RPGs ( Role-Playing Game ).


Some in-game screens.

Enelysion, my project that has been in production since November 2010, hopes to recreate that Golden-Era feeling of RPGs and RPGMaker VX( published by Enterbrain ) has allowed me to do all of this, and more. So yes, as for introductory posts, that’s as far as I’ll go now. 🙂
