Opening #2 - showcasing
Posted 06 January 2009 - 06:52 PM
Most of the rest of what I will say is a repeat of what I said from the last contest word for word:
If you are not familiar with the rules or procedures, please review the pinned topic in this forum, or click here. Posting in this topic will be limited to interested candidates showcasing one of their projects. It could be a quest or a tileset. How you showcase your work is completely up to you. Double posting is allowed if you reach the character limit or image limit for a post. You can also make another post later if you wish to show an update on your project provided you feel it would help you, but don't go overboard on it.
No other forms of posting please. No opinions on peoples work, whether or not you are one of the participants. That is to remain confidential. When the showcasing is over, I will announce it here, lock this topic, and then open up a poll. The showcasing should last 1 week unless I feel that we need more candidates.
EDIT (8:40 pm): I forgot to turn posting permissions back on. For anybody who was trying to post before, you should be able to now.

Story: (Note: This is just the beginning of the game, there is a lot more depth to the story later on.)
Hyrule... Is a kingdom was magnificent mountains, peaceful lakes, and beautiful forests. Its citizens were proud to live in such a wonderful land... But one day... Evil covered the country, shadows rolled in from the south and soon Hyrule was completely isolated from sunlight and all other nature. When everyone thought hope was lost, a hero came and destroyed the darkness. He sealed it into a pearl and then destroyed it and hid the shards... Many citizens nowadays think that the shadows are coming again, monsters have started to appear all over Hyrule...
One day Link wakes up to his grandfather calling him downstairs. He rushes downstairs and his grandfather tells him that he needs some wood from the forest. Link goes off, finds the wood, and gives it to his grandfather. His grandfather is a blacksmith, making all sorts of things. The next day, Link's grandfather gives Link a sword. When he goes out to practice with it, he finds a fairy being attacked by octoroks. Link kills the octoroks and saves the fairy, the fairy introduces herself and everything. (Her name is Celine.) Suddenly, Moblins come and steal Link's sword. Celine wants to help Link get it back from the Moblin hideout. When they enter the forest a storm hits. A tree falls down behind Link and blocks his way out. Oh well, he'll have to find another way out. After retreiving his sword, he explores deeper into the forest, still trying to find an exit. Instead, Link finds an abandoned village, he explores for a little bit, but then the storm gets worse, forcing himself to run inside the nearest structure, which is the Lost Shrine.
(As I said, as you play the story gets better.)
(Most of these look better while actually playing the game...)
This video is of the second boss, Stallord. I may change his name. All credit for this boss goes to LinkTheMaster. Thanks again! (BTW, there is no sound. Sorry, I couldn't get the sound to work... And also, don't pay attention to that blue thing, it's my mouse...)
Here it is
Pearl Of Shadows Video: Stallord
The following demo is an exploration demo, covering parts of North and South Hyrule Field. There are a few glitches, none too drastic. (For example, the dust tiles for the rolling script aren't configured...) Anyways, I rushed to create this so if any screens look a little incomplete that is why.

~Unnamed GB quest~
Here are some screens that are kinda outdated because I haven't really been working on this for a LONG time...
Recently, I've partnered up with Christian but he hasn't made any screens yet or anything, so I don't have anything to show from him right now.
Fading Hours - Undecided DOR tileset - This will have a REALLY epic storyline.
Paper Mario ZC- Old DOR tileset - I have quite a few things done
Parody Quest - Pure Tileset

For as long as anyone can remember, the 8 Monster Lords and their minions roamed around Rectangle Country, doing whatever the hell they felt like doing. 50 years ago, a mysterious hero emerged from his cheap home located somewhere on Alternate Zone and killed the Monster Lords. He took their Medals of Proof and sealed them inside a magical rock in the Stone Chasm. Though, there was a hole in the rock just about large enough for the Monster Lords' souls to escape, so he took his sword and sealed it. </serious>
50 years later, some random kid named Yarg gets bored and goes to see his friend, the Sleepy Advice Guy. He asks for some advice on how to not be bored, so the Sleepy Advice Guy advises that Yarg venture into the Stone Chasm. He also gives him the answer to a maze path to ensure that you talk to him. Yarg takes the Sleepy Advice Guy's advice, and wanders in there. He them pulls the sword from the magical rock, releasing the Monster Lords. News of Monster Lord activity spreads all around the world in a matter of seconds somehow, and the King of Triangle Town sentences Yarg to re-kill the Monster Lords.
WOO NO MORE STORY
Screens "cause tl;dr"

(Rhombus Trail) (complete with old features, such as Monster Lords being named "Barakker" "Pravuscalera" "Sonar" and "Furious" :O)
(A bit of Rectangle Country and Oval Island gameplay)
As of last night, I'm making a sequel to Zelda 1, currently called Zelda 2. It'll be classic styled if it goes anywhere, with only a few new features, such as True Arrows.
Posted 06 January 2009 - 11:54 PM
Yes, my main project right now is a remake of Link to the Past. But by no means is it just a direct transfer to ZC.
The story is vary similar to the SNES version, but that doesn't mean I haven't slipped in a few plot twists. I won't spoil them now, but expect a few more storyline twists, and two endings.
Features: Although the main Hyrule Field area of the quest will be very similar to LttP, most of the overworld areas will be heavily improved on. For example, the desert, which was very empty and boring in LttP, will be much larger, and full of places to explore, as well as potential dangers (like sudden sandstorms). The dungeons will keep the same basic themes from LttP, but will be heavily modified and improved on.
Here's the map of what I've got of Hyrule Field so far: http://h1.ripway.com/Russ/LttPMap.gif There are two screen that aren;t finished; you'll be able to tell which ones they are.
A screenshot of the Forest Temple (Dark World level 3). It was actually made for KttH, but will be in LttP DX now.
Remember the annoying part in Turtle Rock where you had to use the Cain of Somaria to create platforms and move across the tracks? Well, here's an improvement on it. Cart Surfing! It will be a lot like in the Oracle games, with the switches controlling which sections of the track open and close.
This is one of those "overworld improvements" I was talking about. It's a section of the desert, near the entrance to level 2. (Note: The screenshot is a little old.)
The Lost Woods, living up to its name.
I expect to release a demo shortly, after I finish polishing up a few more things.
I have two other projects I'm working on. One is a joint quest with LostInHyru1e. No screenshots yet, but trust me when I say it will be big. I've been planning it for two years to make sure it's perfect, and LiH has added his fair share of great idea. As for the other project, it's a quest based of my favorite RPG, EarthBound. It's still in its infant stages (making intro, making scripts, etc.), but I can tell you this much: It will feature scripts that allow you to control six different characters at once, switching between them with the start button, and will most likely feature a semi-RPG system.
Well, thanks for reading all of this (if you did read it and didn't just skim through it to get here). I promise, if I am given this QPF, I will make the most of it, and provide you with all the latest info on my quests, and I will make good, fun quests for you to enjoy.

By Heavy, the Titanium. (or something like that)
It first takes place in Hyrule. Link had been cut off from his date with Zelda, and forced to find Ganon or any of his minions, for the sacred scroll of the Triforce's location had been stolen by either one of them. For the weeks that Link had been searching he'd been separated from his own home, having to sleep wherever he could find a decent spot. One of the days he decides to sleep under a tree in Hyrule field. Before he slept he had a rant about how he feels like he's being used, and why does the evil mastermind keep reviving himself in each generation, and such other things. Though when Link woke up from his sleep he was somewhere where he hadn't been before. At first he thinks that it could just be a dream, though it feels all too real.
He woke up inside a maze of white halls, he had to search all the halls to find a way out. Once he had found his way out he found himself on a small island, though when he looked up he saw that he was in a world within a gigantic underground dome. Link explores the island a little bit, but finds little importance, so he swims across a giant lake of murky water until he reached the mainlands. Link made it to a beach, though a squad of Darknuts and a Darknut leader named "Barricade" where having a meeting of some sort. Link eavesdropped on the conversation, he found out that these particular Darknuts where somehow mutated humans, and that they plan to mutate all the underworlds inhabitants, though something was in their way, they wanted to get their hands on four keys that could open a gateway that leads to overworld island above them, called "Schismia". What Barricade is trying to grab is hands onto is unknown, though Link wants to stop this menace before it posses a possible danger to the entire world, that and he wants to open the gate so that he and the people who choose can leave the underworld.
Welcome to the Xelbi Underworld, enjoy your stay, cause you'll be trapped down here forever if you don't find the keys before Barricade!
Some of these are outdated, but, I'll just put them here anyways, cause I can.
These are all the levels I have planned for the game, only the first three have been finished so far.
Level 1: The Excavation Site.
Level 2: Weep Manor.
Level 3: Sky Gardens.
Level 4: Pipedream. (The Mario Clone Brother's Facility)
The outer dome.
The Black Hall.
(Some bonus levels may follow)
This is all of them, so far. (with the exception of some who may reveal a spoiler)
An evil tyrant who wants to take over the Xelbi underworld, as well as the entire overworld. Barricade wears a golden armor and cape, and he thinks of himself as a godlike figure. He possesses many powers, such as: teleportation, heat beams, fireballs, camouflage, shapeshifting, etc. Barricade hides a shocking secret in the caverns of the outer domes.
Other than these facts, Barricade's lifestory as a human is unknown, though he's believed to of been an inhabitant of Schismia.
A Xelbian who highly resembles Link. He helps Link throughout the quest until a certain point. It turns out that he's actually a glimpse of Link, meaning that one of his only life purposes is to prepare the Xelbi Underworld for the coming of a hero. Dagge isn't shown fighting anything, except at one point he says he's going to Capital Town to defend it from Darknuts, and when Link makes it to Barricade's Fortress he helps him get through.
King Willard XIII:
The king of Weep Manor, and of the region of tears. Link meets with him to barter for the second gate key, though Willard tells Link that he'll grant the key on the next night. Though actually Willard is helping to make a deal with Barricade, that if he helps capture or kill Link for the royal feast, that he will grant him with the second key.
Also, three other bizarre facts about Willard: he can shoot fireballs from his mouth, a strange demon possession is responsible for his cannibalistic behavior, and he never had any good experiences with rabbits.
A glimpse of the Hylian princess, Zelda. She's daughter of the mayor (Who's name I haven't decided yet) of Capital Town. She gives Link some useful items, and she helps make a distraction so that Link can infiltrate the Mario Clone Brother's Factility.
An alternate universe version of Samus who appears in this game. This Samus is one who has already defeated all Metroids, though she went through an experimentation, one that was originally to distribute her suit, though it accidentally fused it to her body, permanently. Now she's been forced to make as much use of it as possible, so she's been searching the galaxy for any possible Metroids still existing. Somehow she finds the dimension the quest takes place in, and she finds traces of Metroids that where placed in a nest, under the excavation site. This leads to the discovery of another possible doom of the Xelbi Underworld. Samus also discovers that these particular Metroids are controlled by sound waves coming off of two Mother Brain clones. Samus destroys one of them, though lacks the requirements to defeat the second, so she ends up helping Link and Dagge find a flute artifact that can defeat it. After that, Samus leaves to somewhere unknown.
A skeletal wizzard like figure who travels in a giant bush of floating thorns. He stopped the thorns near the Sky Garden to receive the third gatekey, which he said he would protect. He did so, but he also cursed: the Sky Gardens, Nexus, and Neon Park, with a swarm of beings called "Shadow Ghosts", as well as a mysterious fog.
Spellcaster possesses many powers, though his most preferred is illusions.
The Grey Cauldron:
A machine created by the Mario Clone Brothers, though bought by King Willard as a utility to fry Link's body for dinner. The Grey Cauldron doesn't have much of a personality, nor does he speak, for he's only a machine.
The Mario Clone Brothers:
A group of clones from a future world. They came back though time to search for an alternative power source, and in exchange to the people of Capital Town they have given them the advanced technologies that they desire. The Mario Clones used to be nicer, even letting people have tours of their facility, though until a certain point they've became secretive, and protective of their facility, this has raised Xelbian suspicion that the Mario Clones are plotting something.
The Mario Clone Brother Leader:
The Mario Clones do exactly as what's told from this guy. The Mario Clone Leader has lived through several generations, having to be re-cloned, over, and over. Due to this fact, his skin color has become a deep pale color, and he's forgotten exactly what the objective was supposed to be, as well as the characteristics of the original Mario himself. Though through several generations of reviving he's gained super powers, such as telekinesis.
He's been filled with evil ambitions, and he plans to use them against humanity somehow, also, he lies to Barricade that he's going to help get the fourth gatekey for him, though Barricade himself actually knows he's lieing, and that he already has the key in his possession.
This is slightly outdated.
Sky Gardens Map.
Also slightly outdated, I've been kinda lazy with updating this kind of stuff.
Sky Gardens: Preview.

Zelda: The Shards of Hyrule
Link is the Son of the King of Hyrule, and brother of princess Zelda. He hates his title of "Prince", so on his 15th birthday, purchased a garden with a small cottage on the outskirts of town. He goes for his training at his Uncle's dojo and is suprised by the fact it is his last day. His Uncle claims there is but one more thing to teach him, and that if he can defeat him, then he shall teach it to Link. Something goes wrong and there is an explosion. His Uncle died in the fire, and Link barely escapes. Link goes to the castle to get his father, who he so very much hates, and asks for help. As it turns out, he has befriended a magician named Grunage. Link and Zelda both have a bad feeling about him, but have no power to do anything. Then, about a week after Grunage arrived, the king mysteriously died. When Zelda went to go investigate, she was kidnapped by Grunage. Grunage then took the Crystal of Darkness and placed it in Zelda's body. After that, he shattered the Crystal of Light into 7 pieces, and gave them too his disciple, Knives, to hide across Hyrule. The shattering of the Crystal cracked the land around Hyrule and broke it into 7 different continents. Due to the Crystal of Darkness still surviving, the Dark World began to seep through the large fissures in between the lands. Link must go on a journey of many sacrifices, and many dangers to find the pieces of the crystal, restore it's form, and defeat Grunage...But is he really doing the right thing...?

Hylian legends tell of a young boy, clothed in green. And how that boy drew the sword of Evil's Bane from its pedestal, and struck down a great evil. The boy was etched into Hyrule’s history, but the story eventually faded into mere legend. Thanks to the young boy’s courage, Hyrule was safe for hundreds of years to come.
Until, one day, from the depths of the ocean, the great evil rose once again, and consumed the world with his greed, anger, and pure evil. The evil captured the young maiden, Princess Zelda, the rightful heir to the throne. He then seized the Triforce, and claimed the kingdom as his own. The Hylian could do nothing else but pray to the Gods that the hero shall be reborn, and re-instate goodwill to all the land.
Fifty years have passed, and only you, as the hero’s kin, can defeat the great evil and restore peace.
Fifteen years ago, a baby washed up on the shores of Sunset Island. But this baby did not have any parents. This baby was concieved from the gods. This baby was Link. This baby is Link.
Link grew up with a surrogate grandfather, on Sunset Island, far away from the troubles of Hyrule. The people of this island were carefree, and new nothing of the troubles in Hyrule. Their naivety was destroyed when the island was invaded by Ganondorf's evil henchmen, who were now governing the kingdom. They ordered all men that could wield a sword to be enlisted into the Hyrule Guard. Link's grandfather was taken way, and forced into service.
Now link must find some way to get off the island, and to the distance land of Hyrule, were he can rescue his grandfather. But when Link makes it to Hyrule, he becomes aware of the much bigger problem, that he must overcome.
Will you draw up the Hero’s blade and strike down evil?
Or will you succumb to the clutches of evil, and let it take hold of you?
Either way, can you usher in a new day and age?
Trailer: Day and Age storyline trailer
*DoR 2.0 Tileset, with many customisations etc.
*A large overworld to explore, as well as many little and large islands to find.
*The option to join the good or evil side of the story. You can either choose to fight Ganondorf, or to join him.
*Lots of cutscenes.
*Many scripts, such as: NPC, Roll, Bombchu, and Sheild scripts.
I have many side projects that I work on when my time isn't being taken up by Day and Age. The most notable is Adventures of a Goron, a quest, obviously about a goron.
This is my first big quest that I am working on, and my first quest I hope to release. I have been using ZQuest for nearly two years now, so have experience using the program. I'm not going to make any promises that I will update things everyday, or even every week, because that's just not realistic. But I will promise, that if givin a change to use this QPF spot, that I will always try my best to keep giving this site great content, and continue to work hard, for a 2010 release of my quest.

The 4th goddess
In a time before time,
there was a prosperous civilization
a civilization created by 3 goddesses
They left behind 4 sacred triangles
to represent them and the people
But the people were ignorant
and created a demon
The goddesses were angry
and sealed the demon inside a mirror
They covered the land with soil
and created a new world
The demon's soul escaped many times
but a legendary hero always stopped him
And the 4th shard was forgotten
These are old screenshots
I have a major problem,I put in a password and when I enter it the file says its the wrong password.Can somebody help me get the file open,I don't want this work to go to waist.If I'm correct I think a dev can help but I don't want to annoy them,and I don't want anyone to annoy them.Is there any way to get it back?
