MSN History Timeline

From here:
Additional info here(need to reply to view som part of the post):

For people interested in the background story and MSN 1.
This may clear up some confusion or maybe increase more confusion. This list is made quite some time ago, there are stuff that may have been corrected in new MSN game releases … meaning it may be outdated or wrong in some parts. So it’s not foolproof. This list is made by a game member and edited by a player later. If not wrong, this info is what included in the MSN2 commemorative booklet.

I also omitted MSN3 timeline because of MSN3 spoiler.
And please finish the main story of MSN2 before reading this as it is spoiler for MSN2.
Under cut.

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.

A sample of Prince Maker Alpha game music, as always Mouse is very good at creating nice music:

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.

Prince Maker Braveness Introduction

10 01 2010

Prince Maker Braveness is a raising simulation + visual novel adventure game (SVG+AVG game). This game is very much similar to the Princess Maker series but it incorporates more in depth storyline into it. This game is free for download in the Alfagame forum(Have to register). We’re trying to have this game translated into English so friends and fans could play it and understand the story. I’ve personally asked permission from the head of the game to translate this to English but I’m not sure if she remembers because and she remembers! even though it’s so long ago(June 2008) and I have never updated them anything after that. I have recently updated them.

The story is set in a world called New Eden. There are 3 tribes living in that world, Deities, Humans and Demons(Even though they have the same characteristics of our views about deities, humans and demons, but they view each other as a type of race). They found a new land and all 3 wanted it so they end up with an agreement that they each raise a child and if they’re very capable in all aspects they’ll be Emperor of the Three Realms and the land will be governed by that tribe for the next 50 years. After the 50 years are over, another Emperor will be chosen… Why only 50 years? What is the dark secret about the role of the Emperor of Three Realms?

You’re a demon with a past who came to the human land to interview to be the caretaker of the human kid who is the candidate to be the Emperor of Three Realms. The characteristics of the tribes are, Deities are good in arts and dancing and other art related stuff. Demons are good in combat. Human is the weakest of all tribes but they’re intelligent. You got the job and every year you’ll get wages. The kid calls you brother or sister(whatever gender you pick). The story is very deep and I’ve only touched the surface, you’ll find yourself surprised by the ending! I know I do. You can do a lot of stuff actually, study, go explore(and an rpg type of interface will occur where you’ll battle monsters n stuff), work, visit places, etc. That’s whats good about simulation games ^.^ Watch your kid grow.
