A classic JRPG, reminiscent of Final Fantasy 4-6, Lunar, and Chrono Trigger. The story centers around two brothers from a small logging village who are about to embark on an epic journey that will end up changing the world. In the final release, there will be approximately 40-50+ hours of gameplay featuring engaging plot twists, quest system, and even branching plot lines that vary based on the choices you make!

As we look back on 2018, Shadow Star’s development team has a lot to be proud of. Here’s a summary of some of the project’s updates:

  • Shadow Star’s development team has expanded to form an independent development studio, “Dream Blue.”
  • Along with the officiation of a studio, Dream Blue was excited to launch our own developer’s website: www.dreambluegames.com
  • Exciting additions were made to the art and music/SFX teams which are enabling increased production to the development of in-game assets as well as an overall music score.
  • Animated battlers for party members include: Lance, Bryce, Bailey, Celestrea, Caliph with further party member battlers in production
  • The multi-district capital city of Guardania has been expertly crafted and includes not only an exciting fully orchestrated original backtrack, but a robust NPC population (integrated with story driven plot questing as well as side questing).
  • Improvements to the Graphical User Interface, including updated custom battle and item icons, as well as battle HUD enhancements have been incorporated to immerse players with ease
  • New and exciting monster art has been included to replace existing stock assets, adding to a higher quality experience
  • A player-driven character/class talent system has been designed and is in pre-implementation development with regard to UI integration and mechanics testing.
  • World-map and town dungeon interactables have been strategically placed to offer fun and unique exploration rewards to players willing to solve riddles/puzzles and more.
  • A comprehensive list of stat-balanced character weaponry has been added to the items database (over 200+ new weapons to discover).

These are just some of the many exciting additions to Shadow Star, brought to you by Dream Blue’s developers. Stay tuned for more and as always, may your spirit of adventure carry you forward!

All right, I quit. I can't get past the goblin and his henchmen. Nothing I do takes more than 20 or so HP from the henchmen, I've taken well over 1,000 HP off the sorcerer and still can't make him go away, the cooldown for the synergy attack is far too long, I have ONE healing potion and a healing spell that doesn't fully heal. Nice looking game, but this first boss is way overpowered.

There's a bit of a hint given in what Bryce says as the fight starts. (*Take another look at using Bryce's Shatter Armor ability against the 'henchmen'*) ;-)

Well, I did it... with zero potions left, 61 HP, and carrying my dead brother home on my back... :-p

I'll see what I can do to make the fight a little easier. Be sure to check out the 'Field House/Inn' that's located just East of the Goblin Cave on the World Map...where you can rest and stock up on supplies.

I might suggest a shorter cooldown on the synergy attack and a more powerful healing ability.

Anyway, sorry for the rant, particularly if it was spoilery. I honestly didn't expect you to approve it. I just wanted to let you know what I found frustrating.

I saw Drifty playing through an early version, and it looked great, but it's much more polished now. I'm glad to see the dialog tightened up, and the new character models are really good. I ran into a glitch at the inn: when I woke up, I was inside the wall, and couldn't leave. But the demo I downloaded is a year old. Maybe you've already caught that.

Thank you so much for the feedback! =) Yeah, I was able to address the issue in the Solace Inn. I had moved the map around and forgot to move the location where the player 'woke up' at, lol! Stay tuned for Shadow Star updates on the official website, www.dreambluegames.com!!
