With Alpha 3 being released on Patreon, Alpha 2.1 becomes available to the public.
Please start a new game to avoid bugs from old save games.

If you have access to the Patreon posts you can find Alpha 3 here:

For the public version of Alpha 2.1 click here:

Keep in mind that you need the RPG Maker VX Ace RTP to run this game:
(the RTP includes graphics and other standard assets of RPG Maker that are required)

The changelog for Alpha 2.1 is in this post:

Now, what's new in Alpha 3?
Lovely Catheline is now a playable character!
We added the shopping district (which needs more NPCs which we will place in Alpha 3.1 and Alpha 4), as well as first half of the second dungeon.

Here's the full changelog of Alpha 3:
Changelog Alpha3 - 26/08/2017:

- Added new city district: The shopping disctrict!
  -> Some buildings are already open to be viewed, although most don't have a function just yet
  -> Added a shop where you can buy a few useful items
- The first half of the second dungeon (Mission 02) has been added! Continue the story and visit the shopping district, to find out how to access it.
  Due to adding and changing many different things, it is highly recommended you start a new game instead of using an old save file!
  This will avoid most of the bugs you might encounter when using old save files.

- Added Catheline as a brand new character. She comes with her own unique set of skills to tear her enemies to shreds and drown them in shadows!
  Continue the story to find out how to add her to your party!

- Added new enemies to the second dungeon: The Failed Clones!
  Beware of these human created monsters! Even though they are considered as failed experiments,
  they still inherited the strengths of the ones they are based on, so don't take them lightly!

- Defeating enemies that grant XP now also rewards you with money

- Added a few new interactions in the hotel room

- Changed how the Evasion buff works: Evasion now lasts for 2 turns (including the one it is being applied) and gives +100% chance to dodge attacks.
  This change was done to make skills that award an evasion buff more useful and attractive to use,
  since before players tended to only spam cheap multi-hit attacks like Brawl and Ryuuseiha.

- Added new equipment, like rope and charms, that are useful in battle. You can find them or buy them at the shop!

Deathblight RPG progress report

It's been a while since the last blogpost, so I figured a short update might be a good idea.
(we regularly post progress reports on Patreon, usually several times a month)

Catheline Combat Graphics

We're currently working on finishing the last CG, originally we planned to have 5 CGs (2 CG scenes) with variations in the upcoming version.
But we decided to add another extra CG last minute (so it's 6 CGs with variations now).
Once it's done it needs to be implemented.
Then there's more testing to do, and if no bugs show up last minute, we'll be ready for the release.

In the meanwhile, enjoy Catheline up there!
