Crimson Rafflesia Preliminary Demo 0.5 [Download] by CorenB Crimson Rafflesia Preliminary Demo 0.5 [Download] by CorenB

DOWNLOAD DEMO VERSION 0.5 HERE



Synopsis:
In a certain country during the late 20th century, a series of strange deaths occurred. All of the victims were found with their bodies putrefied, even though they shouldn’t have died more than a few hours ago. This, however, stopped as quickly as it had come, only to be replaced by a series of strange disappearances. The government tried to hush it up, because they had no leads, while a secret private detective group went on a manhunt for the perpetrator. These cases closed upon the unfortunate deaths of said group in an accident. Years passed.

All was well, until the decaying corpse of Mikaela Lane turned up in an abandoned warehouse.

This story is set a year after that – about a young female governmental mercenary, Sho Reilen, who is skilled in the use of swords. She has something she wants – to confront Kaison Voltaire, a young man who seeks to hunt her down in revenge for the death of his beloved friend, Mikaela.

Developer Comments
It's here - only demo 0.5, which cuts pretty early, but I thought it's the only way I can release something before Christmas, heh, since some wondered if something could be released in December. I'll release a Demo 1.0 later which cuts at a more appropriate and less... cliffhangery point. I promise. Once I'm done with all the art and programming for that. Meanwhile, hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed making it!

Features (no, not really.)
:bulletyellow: 7 CGs (40+ including variations – yes, I know.)
:bulletyellow: Music and background images shamelessly begged and taken from random sources — yes, I know.
:bulletyellow: People monologuing at lot–
:bulletyellow: Which leads to 8,000+ words–
:bulletyellow: I’m sorry. :P
:bulletyellow: I’ll release a longer, better version that doesn’t cut at such a ridiculous place next time. That’s why this is still demo 0.5.

Just for fun, in the actual Demo 1.0 I plan to open a (joke) bonus room where some of the characters can answer questions posted by players. :) You can also ask me about what the heck is going on in my stupid bored mind when I thought up of this nonsense, so note me any questions, and they might be included in the game!

I played the demo. It was slow at 1st but soon, it became interesting. The cliffhanger and the preview at the end... that was awesome!! I can't wait for the full version.

By the way... is the full version gonna be free or does it cost money?

I'll be waiting for the full version then!!

By the way, it's kinda hard to figure out who's POV it is since it switches from Sho to Kaison and the only way I can usually tell immediately is by the background.

Er, everything's in third person. /: There's no first person POV at any point, so it's kind of easy to tell whose view you're following just by looking at the names.

No, I mean, the story. Like for example, the focus is on Sho then later on it would be Kaison's turn and sometimes it's hard for me to know which one is the focus of that part of the story unless either of them speak or the narration would mention "he" or "she" as the character. It takes a while to easily figure it out...

Ah, I see. Well, that's essential to the way the story is told, so I won't be changing it. It shouldn't be too hard to figure out.

No problem. :) Hope it wasn't too difficult for you though. I didn't mean for the switching to be difficult to follow.

Just finished reading through. :D I've had my eye on this for a while, and I have to say, it's great so far. Love the opening with the "world being a birthday candle;" great hook, I was sucked in from the very beginning. Psychotic characters like Sho are always so fun to read about, too. XD Looking forward to more! Great stuff so far.

The art and music is good enough for me. And the story is pretty interesting, it's stop right at where the story got more intense. :D

Wondering, when might the full version come up? :3

I don't have any estimated release date, but this demo is cut at an earlier point, before where I expect to cut the actual demo, which is why it's Demo 0.5 and not 1.0. :) Why I released this demo was because well, I wanted to get something out before Christmas at least.
