Amazing game!

Timing based battle mechanics aren't often used in rpgs, but I find they add a certain immersion that otherwise is missed. You have to keep conscious effort through the battle much like the character actually would instead of just ordering a command and sitting back.

The execution of said mechanic is rather fun, allowing a level of skill that allows the player to beat most enemies without even taking damage and to quickly dispatch enemies as a reward for better performance.

Some things I would tweak is the bow is a bit overpowered near the beginning, doing 8 damage compared to the swords 3. I find getting perfect timing on magic is too easy, I would suggest a slower bar with a yellow/green/red zone for normal, double, and fail respectively.

I find it was unclear where to find the alchemist, one of the characters should mention where they live or the path. I mean if you assume the graveyard is done with and you need to progress there is only the one option, but still I didn't want to move forward without any indication I was going the right way.

Those are just small things, aside from that it was a great experience, great job!

Good and interesting

I love RPGs, and I'm only ever happy when another is made. I think this is a good game, and the music is great (though the Shale music is kinda cheesy). The graphics look a mite simple at times but are otherwise quite good. The plot is also interesting, I was actually surprised to see what had kidnapped the girl!
However, I found the controls a little difficult to use. I disliked having to use my left hand for both movement and interactions, and using the mouse was a bit annoying; it might be good to cut it out or allow players to continue conversations by clicking anywhere. I suggest allowing the option to use the arrow keys for movement as well, to make exploration smoother. I also suggest making the battle spacebar reaction times a little longer, as the only way I could do a combo or dodge was by mashing the spacebar, and even that didn't always work.
Otherwise a fun game that just needs a few minor tweaks to make it even better!

What a great games !

Hope to see more part in the future because its really a great RPG games...
All the good things are here...

I will not list all the good things about this game because they are so many but
it could have been a little less repetitive , maybe less enemies or more variety of enemies I dont know... but it was always combat combat combat...

You could add more depths to your list of item plus the list of weapon you can equip... I dont know you could add MUCH MORE like armor , helmets, glove and all this stuff It would be better...

The spell was cool to use with the spacebar but they all looked the same and didn't show like one spell is better then another , they look and damage the same...

And for the saved games mechanism for the love of god add an auto-save feature or whatever because at this date I don't even know how to save !!! (surely in the options menu...)

But it was so great !! (Storyline , graphic , spacebar combat with mouse and all its so make the combat interesting... and all !!)

Not a bad game

Graphics are decent, story's good. I find melee to be almost impossible to hit with proper timing, so I just end up defaulting to the bow. Also mousing over your hp in the menu says that you can replenish your hp by using items or sleeping at an inn, or your house. I can't, however, figure out how to sleep at your house. Moving near the bed produces no space bar action icon, and saving doesn't do it either.

AAAh you'll be able to do that shortly. I've uploaded an updated version but it seems to be taking a little while to update.

I will first say good game. Secondly I say remove the mouse control completely. I am not good at hitting the spacebar rapidly with my left hand. My right hand is still on the mouse when I select the bow. By the time my ever-speedy right hand gets to the spacebar to charge the bow, half my time is lost.

Hazard-Productions responds:

aaaactually, the timer for the bow doesn't start until you start mashing the button. Good point though.
