Greetings, FEU! After a year or so of restructuring and reworking, I’m proud to present the revival of my romhack, now (informally) titled OC Emblem Redux!
I started over from scratch, this time using FE8 as a base, and overhauled the gameplay, visuals, music, and script so much that 95% of the (admittedly crappy) original has been shredded down to its last atom. Thanks to planning this out a lot more orderly this time around, I now have a general outline planned!
OC Emblem’s features so far include:
23 playable chapters!
8 playable sidequests!
48 playable characters! (3 competent lords!)
38 custom songs including Grasswalk, Terra’s Theme, High Above the Land, Loonboon, and… Spider-Man 2’s Pizza Theme?
Fun classes to play with like Ballisticians, Spiders, Golems, and… Chickens?
Fun items to play with like Hookshot, Tri Attack, Brainshock, healing food, and… Wall-Nuts?
Utilizing the Text Engine Rework for dynamic and fun dialogue scenes, complete with fun little sound effects!
A lighthearted crossover story peppered with humor but still treats the stakes seriously, including an in-game Lore encyclopedia that unlocks more and more articles as you progress through the game! (If you think some things in the hack are too absurd, keep this in mind!)
But that’s enough chitchat for now. Here’s a link to the current patch!
OC Emblem V23 (11/22/2023, goes up to Chapter 23 with optional Chapter 4x, 5x, 7x, 10x, 12x, 15x, 20x, and automatically-unlocked 22x)
And what’s a hack’s post without some juicy screenshots?
And here are the credits as well! (Everyone is credited only once for convenience. If you made something used and seen in-game but I forgot to put your name anywhere in the credits, please notify me about it in private on Discord or here so I can rectify the problem.)
