OC Emblem Redux [9/25 Chapters, 3/8 Gaidens, 31/49 Playable Units, 35 Custom Songs]

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:

Features

9 playable chapters!
3 playable sidequests!
31 playable characters! (3 competent lords!)
35 custom songs including Grasswalk, Terra’s Theme, 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 that isn’t afraid of being silly and not taking itself 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 V7 (11/15/2022, goes up to Chapter 9 with optional Chapter 4x, 5x, and 7x)
And what’s a hack’s post without some juicy screenshots?

The Mini Jelly description sounds similar to the Oozium units from AWDS :open_mouth:

This looks amazing! The color scheme is probably my favorite I’ve ever seen in a hack(I am alittle biased towards purple and blue since that’s my favorite color combination) and I’ll be rooting for the completion of this as well! Good luck my friend as I know it’ll be good(I’ve also played a PME that you’ve done in the past so I know that this gonna be a good one).

Hey all, thanks for the support so far! I’ve updated the patch quite a lot over the past week or so, since it was mostly polishing and little fixes here and there, I’ve used the same link. I hope you’re all enjoying the hack so far!

Part of the hotfixes include: Bugfixes, rebalancing, and aesthetic weather! Chapters 1 and 4 both have snow you can enjoy without having to trudge through the sloggy reduced movement!

I’ve uploaded Chapter 7. I was gonna wait until I finished Chapter 7x to post a new update so we’d have the entirety of Act 1 released, but I kinda got tired lately. Hope you all enjoy!

Good job! Also, don’t push yourself, rest

Bump. Chapter 7x has been out for quite some time. I’ve been doing tons of QoL changes behind the scenes as well, such as implementing Tequila’s text engine rework and using it to make dialogue flow a lot better and adding sound effects for fun. I’ve condesned the OP for a much more appealing experience. And with that, Act 1 is finally complete. Act 2 coming soon, but I’d like to get some supports done before then, if possible.

You could try out the current patch to see how it’s going so far! As of now, it goes up to Chapter 8 with three unlockable side chapters as well.

Hey everyone, not sure if anyone’s still interested in the hack, but Chapter 9 is out now! It’s the biggest chapter so far in terms of unit count, and I’ll let the image speak for itself:


It’s gonna be a Battle on the Big Bridge! (associated music and boss included)
