Ready for more adventuring?
As of today, the second public release of Legionwood 2 (Beta Build 2.0) is available for download. You’ll be able to experience re-balanced gameplay, polished bugs and an entire hour of whole new content taking place in the world of Westholm, extending Chapter One: Emergent Enemies to 4 – 5 hours in length, with 7 dungeons, 2 towns and 7 bosses.
And, with that… I think that’s it for now. I’ll be taking a few months off Legionwood 2 in order to work on writing my next novel (since publishers give deadlines and all) and running the literary journal that I edit. Apart from updates for bug fixes and little gameplay tweaks, you probably won’t be seeing Chapter Two for a while.
But it will come. Eventually.
Thanks for playing.
P.S You can resume playing the game using your old save file. To do this, just download the 2.0 build of Legionwood 2 and copy and paste your save files (Savexx.rvdata2) from the old directory to the new.
However, there is a small caveat: it appears VX Ace handles events after saving differently than VX. In VX, upon game load, the events present on the map will continue as they have been programmed, whereas in VX Ace, the events that were running when the game was saved will play first, even if those events no longer exist. Thus, loading a save taken at the very end of the last release will simply take you back to the title screen. You need to reload a save that was made at any time before the Brennus fight to be able to continue.
I’m aware of the bug now, and have carefully designed the end of this release to allow maximum save file compatibility.
