Hey! Crimson here. I'm proud to introduce my FE hack to the community: Fire Emblem Foreboding Dusk. This hack is to be a prequel to the Gamecube and Wii Fire Emblem games, following Greil (or Gawain as he was back then) 20 years before the events of PoR, and later on another iconic character we all love to hate. This game is currently in its Beta 1.1 (nice number I know), with Prologue and Chapters 1 & 2 available for play in the Demo Version. The Demo Version is set to reset upon completion of Chapter 2.
It's the year 625 in the Daein castle-city of Nevassa. There's a familiar face waiting for his apprentice, late as usual, to start his training for the day. The familiar face is Greil, or as he was back then, Gawain the Divine Knight. His apprentice, Zelgius, looking as young as ever. Typical Zelgius.
Gre- er, Gawain, doesn't know it yet, but his destiny is about to be changed forever. He is destined to meet Elena, his true love, and run away with her to Gallia to ensure Lehran's Medallion is never obtained by Ashnard. A few friends, some familiar, some not, will aid them on their escape. We all know the beginning and end to this story, but were we ever truly shown what happened?
I've posted this here largely because I want feedback. I alone am the developer and producer of this game, and I've already written out a VERY thought-out storyline, including a timeline, which covers all the way up to the Mad Kings' War. That being said, stories can always be edited and rewritten and I'll take most of any criticism I'm offered. In addition, I'll also accept any help I can get when it comes to things like Sprites/Portraits, which tend to take me forever, or Scripts (Ashunera knows I'm not a writer). This is my semester project in my Computer Science class, so I will be updating the Demo Version every couple weeks as I make progress. I want all the feedback you guys can give me, play the game, love it, hate it, whatever. Just enjoy yourself c:
Lastly, while the finished game will have a long list of IRL People to thank and praise, I wanna take a second and thank @Blazer, @Nintenlord, @Hextator, and @Arch for the shit ton of resources they've created and contributed, from the random forum posts to the massive textbook-sized tutorials which have taught me quite literally everything I've learned how to do up to now. Happy gaming!
