Firegleam blade was once a project i worked on a year ago, but it was deleted in a memory wipe. later on, i decided to rework firegleam blade, and since it's old horribly made counterpart, this remake or complete make over has made a giant leap since it's older version

you play as Shawn, one that was bound by fate to save the continent from a beast known as the derelict. in order to defeat it, you must gather four elemental jewels and break the seal on a legendary weapon known as the firegleam blade, which will shatter any barrier of darkness, and defeat the derelict!

so far, the game only has one jewel, the earth jewel. this demo features:
brilliant night/day and lighting effects
real time gameplay, making it to where you have to play during the night and day to complete the game
3 spells, one earned by the earth jewel
in-game tutorial
two towns
1 armor and sword that can be bought
story effects what people say and help with, with each major event in the game.
1 dungeon

there's lots more to come, including in-game videos and many more!

NOTE: when you move east two rooms from where you begin, it somewhat "freezes". this is supposed to happen, because it is actually loading the room. please be sure to wait a moment or two for it to load when it happens.

NOTE: i will release an update fixing some of the other things that were a little confusing to people in the past soon.

I had fun, the game had a feel of its own (just like any other RPG), I like the fire pits and the sword but I didn't really care for the way the people looked. Btw the game freezes after the 2th room.

hehehe, forgot to mention that when you try to go east 2 rooms from where you start, it takes some time to load the room. don't quite know why, but i will add something that says "loading" next demo. ^_^

Hm. Moderate game. Gets you excited at the begging, like wow this will be cool! But... Um... It doesn't 'fit' into wha it looks like. Make it turn based, I'd say.

um, the turn based thing, would pretty much absolutly wreck it. besides, i already have the entire game planned out.

Okay, I see that now. I will follow this game untill its final release. Good luck! Have you worked on it since?

I found an error. You start with boulder, the rock spell. You may want to fix that. I was stomping enemies that way.

hehe, i've known about that. i have it fixed already in the next version

That was pretty cool... but what do I do after I get all of the orbs?

V commented July 02, 2006 at 4:10 AM
talk to the woman in the center of the town and give her all the orbs, a ctuscene WAS supposed to ensue, but i'm going to create those when i'm actually finished with the game, so everyone ends up dying except for you, and then head back to the oracle.
