Tenative Name : Uncommon Time Retuned
Demo day builds (Latest at feb 13th) :
I am doing a full rewrite/edit of Feralpheonix's game Uncommon Time. In addition to the purging of literal-faggotry and tumblrshit, it cuts filler and adds in new story elements. Included are more main characters, a few new side characters, real villains, and gives the both the player and characters more agency in their actions.
For the gameplay side, spells from all fronts are being tweaked to make them more useful. Characters that were otherwise shit for one reason or another are changed up to be better. Yanfly Engine Ace scripts are added, so the party limit has increased to 7, and there are various other additions to make the game better. as well as a few oversights with the scripts that I need to work around to make time less-wasted
>why are you doing this?
To prove to myself I can emotionally get over my nodev status and make "something big".
>You're not gonna fuck up Teagan, right?
Hell no, she's still snide and critical as ever. In the rewrite, she's a legit monk instead of a "fighter", no longer a carbon copy of whatever anime character FP used to template Teagan, and will still be critical about the party over their shitty playing. And for you glorious waifufags, I got you covered, fam.
>Is FeralPheonix's self-insert (Alto) less of a cunt now?
Yes. Alto as a character has been split into triplet siblings now: Alto, Mezzo, and Soprano. The bitchyness and autism have been shuffled around the three of them, so you'll see how things pan out as the game progresses.
>So you purged the tumblrshit, what about the worm and the faggot?
The worm is going to be a half-fairy male, the faggot-in-a-dress is now going to be a wild-man in elk and bear furs. Once I get around to doing actual art, that is.
For the record, the ex-worm's mother is for-real a fairy, she's plenty alive, and she actually plays a part in the present story.
>What about Meirin?
Meirin doesn't change too much. Her heterochromia is going to be much a modest green/hazel rather than the red/green of OG-UT. Other than being an alchemist and a few spoiler-worthy changes to her family/backstory, she's not much different personality-wise.
>Is the story still a generic "humans bad, humans broke world," enviromentalist bullshit?
Nope, fairies are humans allies now, and have more of a "look at these silly humans and laugh" attitude, but the "breaking of the world" is seen more of a "oh shit, we both fucked up" moment.
Demons were the adversary of the two races in the past, but have been long-since disappeared. At least in the rest of the world they're gone.
>Can I fix the world for good this time?
Yes. But you'll have to find the secret final arc to get to that. Not available in this version.
>Is the boring-ass sidequests still fetch-quest-bullshit?
Right now it's technically unchanged, but my plan is to streamline the padded parts, and expand upon Solenne's backstory. And an arc for one of the new characters.

(I guarantee my art won't be great, but I'll be satisfied if it's "good enough")
(I've decided I will use both music from OG-UT, but also make my own. Tracks I intend to use as mine use either fillers or stock RPGmaker music. I have the means to make music, but right now I want to focus on the gameplay itself.)
