I don't agree the bad reviews!1
It's a big shame that for bad reviews you've stopped this proyect. I've seen several great projects that started amateur. It's obvious that you'll look amateur if if is your first submission! So, I insist, I've several great series start like this ... but they won you are moral for keeping it alive ... I would really like to see a great Lufia log project (perhaps that would end the story of Lufia II and then continue with Lufia I).
I hope you'll re-make your ideas about this proyect; there are a lot of old skool fans around willing to see a good project like this to keep alive.
