[FE8] FIRE EMBLEM: Revitalized (Working title)

A romhack based on a D&D campaign I DMed a few years back. The story’s a little rough right now, as the writing hasn’t been the focus, but I plan to clean up the plot and the aesthetic in the future.

Right now, I’ve got two fully playable maps and I’m working to make this as professional as I can. One of my big goals with this project is to make the maps always a relevant part of each chapter. I plan to make them unique and interesting. Hopefully, I can pull that off. (Although it isn’t in this version of the hack, I plan to have all custom music too. My brother and I are musicians and we have been cooking some things up for this project.)

Anyway, I guess I’ll link the patch here. You should, like, play it or something.

…Please? For me?

FEATURES:

  • Completely original maps designed around having a core feature that allows for multiple different solutions
  • An original cast of characters
  • Original music (not yet implemented)
  • D&D vibes and some differing fantasy races
  • A branching story where character deaths can alter the plot and the mental state of the other characters (read: branching dialogue and Grunther going berserk)
  • A different take on the traditional class system designed to create a unique feel
  • Unique sprites by King Koopa based on character designs by Allthatmatters (both of them still have yet to make a FEU account :expressionless:)
  • Varied win conditions
  • A route split between two main lords (not yet implemented)
  • Armor knights that don’t suck. (They might actually be the best class in the game-)
  • Lots of love from the creators

Anyway, thank you guys for trying it, if you do. I’m pretty terrified posting this… It’s been about a year of work so far, and I plan to keep going because I love working on it, more than I love playing the actual games. Crazy how that is, right?

Here’s a link to the discord, if you want it. Also, have some screenshots!

Neat. I debated on basing my own hack on a Pathfinder campaign that spanned over 3 years, ended up ditching the idea when I couldn’t find any animations that would work for the non-medium sized races.

Neat. I’ve made a few tracks for my project and a bunch of others, I would suggest familiarizing yourself with the Native Instrument Map and the sample notes used for each instrument (rule of thumb, straying too far from them will result in jank).

NIMAP Info Found Here

Kudos for adding screenshots and credits right off the bat. If you’re open to suggestions I’d suggest including an ‘elevator pitch’ in the OP where you list off some of the selling points of your project so people are more informed about the project before diving in. The more you give, the more likely people will play/join the discord.

I hope this was helpful, happy hacking!
