Alfagame 7 years anniversary game list slideshow/video

29 07 2012

Alfagame released this 7 years anniversary video which is a slideshow showing all the games they make over the years (the bigger ones), they didn’t list some of the minigames(without story) :< It is actually a video foretelling the release of MSN3 prequel "Don't forget the Starry Sky" at the end of the video. So yeah, it'll be out during the next holiday in October(in China).

Also, this is released quite some days ago but I was a bit pissed(or probably lazy) to find out that vodpod videos and vodpod widgets are gone so I didn't managed to post it(I'm always like that and only post something a few days later). Which I later found out that it was acquired by Lokerz. So now I can't embed youku or any China based video sites. If you're interested you can click on the link to see. It also shows a picture of Endless that you guys are so curious about.

Awesome music by Mouse as usual.

There is a special event at Alfagame forum where they’re requesting for comments or anecdote about their games. Which basically people give how they get to know the game, how they feel about the games etc. You can also see some preview and info about the MSN3 prequel.

MSN3 prequel – Don’t Forget the Starry Sky

4 06 2012

I’m feeling very pressured because my class starts tomorrow and I have my reasons for it. I need some distraction while I wait for the inevitable tomorrow so I decide to write something. Also, please check back the last post always especially if you’ve encounter bugs as I might have a new patch for MSN2 that fix it.

I’ve known this a few months ago but now I can’t find the post anymore. It’s a pity because I saw a very pretty CG. I think they announced two games in the post that I can’t find now. Last time I saw was called MSN alpha. I think it’s supposed to be the next big game and not this prequel. The MSN alpha is about the very starting of all MSN world, which is the prequel of all prequels? It’ll probably be an RPG but it’s still not fixed yet. But this MSN3 prequel will be out soon at 5th Oct. Free game like usual. Like previous MSN2 prequel(Origin), it is a special type of RPG. I love their RPG, Origin was so fun to play and quite interesting compared to traditional RPG because they always incorporate some kind of strategy into their RPG. Actually, the author like RPG more than Sim Raising game. This Starry Sky MSN3 prequel is about some small characters in MSN3 and don’t have much to do with MSN3. Like looking through the world through the small characters. The prequel is suppose to round up the leftover world concept of MSN3.

Btw, alfagame is not a company. If I’m not wrong, they started out as a club in their university like almost 10 years ago? They all have their own jobs now(some work in the game industry, I’ve gone to ask them last time) or some new members are still students and they have never sell any games before. There’s a big lengthy post in the forum about why they did not sell their games and the criticism they get from friends and family for doing games free. They got sell some merchandise like the MSN3 Music CD and the commemorative booklet because a survey indicated players wanted it and include a lot of merchandise in the package which is like a nice collection rather than for profit. They also do contests every now and then to win some small prizes which is very nice(I won a MSN3 postcard last time and the person who won the Leviria singing contest got her singing put in the music cd). Not sure in the future they’ll sell any games or not but currently they have not planned to.

I’m kind of lazy posting pictures, I’ll post them when the game is out. The design look like MSN3. The announcement date for the game is 5th October this year.





MSN3 dlc – Three Realms Character Battle Records

28 03 2012

Ok, I somehow did not notice this until today. This is like a reward extension of  Prince Maker 3. After you patch, you can access it in the extras section page 6 once you unlock them as extra plot.
This is the result of the character popularity battle competition in ALFAgame Forum. Winners are chosen and some forum members participate in the extra plot making.

Please put the patch in your MSN3 folder if you’ve downloaded them.

You probably don’t see much difference if you just started the game. You have to unlock it by playing through the game ONCE. I’ve put a screenshot. The new rewards will be at the 6th page in the rewards section(if you didn’t patch it, there’ll only be 5 pages of rewards)

For those who want to play Renascence

30 07 2010

Note: I still remember someone ask me about Stats Guide for Braveness Endings. I’ve done it long time ago actually(a few days after someone ask) but I won’t post it until we’ve released the translated game. I’ve posted a Chinese version in Alfagame forum(need register to see)

———

I haven’t post any download yet but I’ll post some of the bare bones translation so that people can play. No chatting translation here.

Seriously I hate to post pictures in wordpress 😦 It is really irritating because I cannot post full size pictures and I really cannot understand the Media attaching procedure, I just use the direct link to post the pictures. I used so much time to tweak the pictures in the MSN3 News post.

I’ll mostly post text. The idea is I post the Chinese text with the translation and you do the word hunting and matching. Simple right? Only special screens that are hard to pinpoint where it is I’ll post a picture for reference. Oh, another thing. I probably won’t do direct translation sometimes. Example, 开启旅程 means “Start Journey” and 回忆旅程 means “Rethink/Recall Journey” but I’ll just say Start Game, Load Game… Also, there are some words that are in Traditional Chinese especially those image words but I use Simplified Chinese to type, I follow order so it shouldn’t be too hard to guess. Also, try use google translate for those that haven’t translated. Those are my personal game notes.

Related Games in the Series

12 01 2010

::Prince Maker Endless::
The 1st Prince Maker they made, even though Braveness is the continuation of Prince Maker Endless but Braveness can be played without it. The character in Braveness is the same design as Endless so it is considered more of an upgrade(but the character is considered the Emperor of Three Realms before Braveness if you get what I mean)

::Prince Maker Braveness::
For this game, the head has recruited talented people in their own department(arts, music, plot writing) to get a higher quality game.

::Braveness Special: 1 Day MSN:: (Minigame)
MSN means young and pretty boy in Chinese(short form) which is bishounen if you’re more familiar with the term. This game is really interesting and cute. Talks about the day before new year and you have to run around New Eden to talk/bite/kiss/etc. people and npc to get their favour and get a date for the new year dance. Very interesting game.

::Braveness Special : Ares Story:: (Spinoff)
RPG Maker XP game. Just a normal RPG game. More like a spinoff based on the story I think but gives you some more story information to the Braveness game.

::Braveness Special : Ares Birthday flash game by BigStone:: (Minigame)
Because it’s good, his flash minigame has been released as an official one. Very fun game. Talks about you the player is sucked into the Prince Maker world and have to prepare a birthday cake for Ares.

::Braveness Special: Ares Birthday:: (Minigame)
This minigame is about hitting the enemies that pops up with a mallet, if you win that level you get some kind of ending, for me it’s very hard and didn’t get to finish -A-

::Braveness: Prince Maker Braveness .Origin::
This is the prequel of Braveness and talks about the life you’ve gone through in the Demon Realm before you go to the Human Realm. This game is not a simulation but a special kind of RPG, but also more to visual novel, but still taking care of a kid, can you guess who the kid is? Definitely a refreshing game and highly recommended by me to play.

::Prince Maker III Renascence::
The story continues after Braveness. It follows the storyline where Dean become Emperor of Three Realms, the kid you raised become the Human King. In this game, you are a teacher and the caretaker of the Deity kid. It seems that he has double personality. From the pictures and music released, it looks very exciting!

::Renascence Special 1: Freedom Days Aleno::
The story is about a Deity called “Aleno”, because of some reason, he/she left his/her hometown and lived in the Three Realm Kingdom for 10 years. After 10 years, he/she went back to his/her hometown. This game is about some stories happening in his/her hometown at that time. And these stories is what lead him/her to a different direction in the future. And this Aleno, later became the main character and the caretaker in Prince Maker 3.

::Renascence Special 2: The Valentine Disaster of Three Realm Kingdom::
The Valentine Goddess needs your help! Click on two person with same sex to get Gmarks, click on two person different sex to get Love marks. There are 3 modes, first one is Normal mode, CheckPoint Mode(you have to fulfill certain condition on each level), Time Attack Mode

::Renascence Prequel: Don’t Forget the Starry Sky::
To be added later when I played it…
