Yuurei, the sequel to Hitodama, is released! It's a metroidvania quest with lots of replayability, with unique items, areas, enemies and bosses! The enhanced soundtrack is highly recommended, but completely optional.

 

If you need help or have bugs to report, please post here. Thanks in advance to any players!

 

Also, here's a few tips:

  • Your Sound Wave can charge for a powerful shot that can reveal special breakable blocks.
  • Some blocks require special weapons to break.
  • Collecting hidden coins powers up your defenses, spells and other abilities.
  • Visual cues usually hint at hidden secrets

You can play as any character by entering that character's name. If you don't, you can either select randomly or by taking a brief quiz. Here's some brief character descriptions if you'd like to choose someone you like:

Characters

Here's some nifty character banners, on the off chance anyone wants to use them.

This looks freaking epic. I feel like a tool for not even knowing about this <.<

I will surely be trying this in the near future!

I tend to keep my projects pretty closed, so I've only been releasing much information within the past month or so, so it's not really a surprise you haven't heard. I'd be excited to hear which character you play and how that run goes when you get around to playing. :)

Whoops! Thanks for pointing it out. Obviously, I'd recommend keeping out of there if you want to proceed normally through the game.

 

Edit: The updated quest file should fix the issue. Sorry for the trouble.

Seems pretty cool so far! I definitely see shades of Legacy of the Wizard, but it's also decidedly it's own experience. The multiple character story setup is definitely a cool thing (for what it's worth, I got Rhone by taking the quiz). The subtle color change to the title screen and hud elements is neat, too.

 

I also went back and tried a little of Hitodama since I hadn't played it before; I will say Yuurei definitely has a gentler learning curve on the fake blocks and secretly-breakable blocks, and uses them more gently. I feel like perhaps the health item drops are less frequent, or maybe that was just the RNG being wacky. I also notice that the enemies who look sort of like Professor Tomoe shoot at the same range the player does, which is a nice touch.

 

I'm pretty bad at it though XD Mostly because I'm awful at combat (in general; you should see how bad I am at Zelda 1). I haven't gotten past the Poison Corridor yet (nor am I completely sure there wasn't another place I could also go- it felt like there might be a branching path). It's hard to juggle dodging wizzrobes and staying out of the poison marsh. The game probably gets much harder later on though, given that this is still a very early area; but even though I personally am bad at it, it strikes me as a fair challenge so far, just a difficult one.

 

Seems like a pretty great game so far! : )

DarkIceDragon: I'm really glad you're looking forward to playing, and I'm happy you liked Hitodama so well. I hope you have a good time with the quest. :)

 

Mitsukara:

I'm glad you're enjoying the quest so far! I the combat starts feeling a little steep, you can usually go exploring to find more health and coins to get an edge. Clever spell use can also help a lot.

 

I'm glad someone got the kind of reference I was going for with the Rhone doppelgangers.

 

Thanks for playing. I hope you continue to enjoy it.

Yup, just as Orithan said. "Plot barriers" like those open when you beat the boss of the corresponding color.

Thanks for the information on that song, Plutia. I haven't played the game, and picked up the song somewhere, so I wasn't sure.

 

Also, you have no idea how happy I am to see that 100% on your subscreen. There kept being various issues we had to debug during test runs, so it always came up short even when we'd collected everything. I put a lot of effort into improving over Hitodama, so I'm glad that you found it to be a better experience.

 

Thanks for playing!
