Hello,

its been a while. Not sure how many remember when I posted my game "Terranigma 2 - The Continuance" about a decade ago.

Well, a lot of time has passed, but I've kept working on it. I eventually ported it from Rpg-Maker to a custom engine, keeping in mind the desire to eventually translate the game to english.

Well, long story short, a pre-release beta for the first part of the game is here (its being release in 3 parts due to overall length), featuring a full english localization:

https://www.envile-media.com/filebase/index.php?file/4-terranigma-2-update-7-2-0/

Please keep in mind that the english localization so far has not been tested extensively, so I'm looking for feedback from testers, both for typos/errors as well as general quality. The game in this version features an ingame bugreporter, which can be used to easily submit text-based errors (as well as general issues).

A brief introduction to the game:

I've become a bit lazy over the years with introducing the game, so I'll keep it short. Its Terranigma 2. Probably the only Terranigma 2 that you'll realistically get. If you want to Its matured drastically over the years and is nigh-uncomparble to the RpgMakers 0.3.2 version I made available all those years back. It plays exactly like the original, with the same graphical style, with a ton of improvements. So, if you yearned for a continuation for Terranigma, this is for you.

The story continues where Terranigma ended. There is a whole new world to explore, adding some background to the events of Terranigma as well as creating a whole new lore. You'll get an explanation to Terranigmas (arguably) open ending, and get to see if Arks journey really ended after the defeat of Dark Gaia.

A list of new/improved features:

- New magic system (using runes and replenishing crystals as a resource)
- Completely new damage-calculcation, meaning less extrem effects of being over/underleveled
- Bulbs and gems are more limited, but you get upgrades for major achievements in the game to expand those limits
- A questlog, to keep track of the wastly increased number of both primary and sidequests
- A wide set of customizable options, like colouring of Arks cloths based on his armor; PAL vs NTSC-speed; differently sized variants of the terranigma-font ingame; an entirely new HUD; etc...

------------------------------------

So if you are interested, feel free to check it out and shoot me some feedback. The game is about 12-15 hours in length. Saves will continue to work in future versions of the game, including releases of Episodes 2 and 3 which will appear in the years to follow.

wow dude, you're dedicated Very Happy I had a playthrough somewhere down my watchlist, but I guess this is the old version you're talking about? I already found that one quite impressive!

Thanks Smile Yes, that one is already very outdated. Its one of the last RpgMaker-Versions, not sure if its the last though. And comparatively, the latest version is even way more advanced, in pretty much every aspect. I wouldn't even have been able to do localization in the RpgMaker, for example Smile

If you want a more recent video, here is one:

Albeit it is still not the most recent version.

Thanks Smile I spent a lot of time investigating it in the emulator, and designed my custom-engine to be able to replicate all of the properties in a fitting fashion.

Thanks! Its a custom made game-engine which I've been developing since 2012. Here is a video of how it looked way back:

Now its more similar to a Unity/Unreal, while obviously only having the feature-set required for terranigma-style 2d.

The game is getting regular updates. Episode 2 is about 50% done, and should hopefully be completed before the next year ends. I'm currently doing engine-maintainence (the engine has an upkeep, as it's a standalone project the needs it's own features to be developed), but I do post regular updates on the project in eigther the forum or the discord (https://discord.gg/ysGnNQJ9zz), where the alpha to episode 2 can be found.
