Crystal Story II deluxe version will soon be available for purchase. Here is the list of features exclusive to the deluxe version:
5 New areas and bosses – Five optional new areas and super bosses appear after you’ve beaten the game to put your party to the ultimate test.
Expanded Armory – Rare armors can now be crafted, and equipment can be dismantled for components.
Exclusive Items – Discover secret items exclusive to the deluxe version throughout the game.
Better Sprites – The deluxe version gives me the opportunity to bypass some of the limitations of the web version. Battle sprites, Icons and Character sprites have been re-saved to PNG-24 from PNG-8. Jpeg quality has also been bumped to 100 from 80.
Better Audio quality – Audio quality has also improved from 80kbps to 128kbps.
Increased save slots and improved saving – Save files do not rely on the browser cache anymore and won’t get deleted if cleared. With the deluxe version, saves are persistent and are stored on the hard drive. Save slots have now increased from 3 to 6.
No ads – Gone are the ads shown at the beginning of the game. Focus more on the game with less clutter.
Hey! So I’m just posting to let you know this project is still alive. Sorry there have been no updates lately. It’s just going really really slow. Voices are now in the game, most of the main cutscenes are done and there are also new music in the game.
Here is what is left to finish:
– Main Cutscenes (~90%)
– NPC dialogues (not started)
– Music (~70%)
– Sound Effects (~20%)
– Effects (~15%)
Skill trees will have blank nodes now. You will have two choices on what stat you want to level up.
The fourth character was also redone to make him look more evil.
Hey! So pretty much all of the people I’ve been working with for additional resources have been really busy with IRL jobs. There have been no significant updates this past weeks. The game will be delayed indefinitely. Really sorry about that. :(
I’ve been trying to improve the game while waiting. I have redone some icons and npcs. Here are some of the significant improvements along with some of the icons in the game.
