This is a project I've been working out for about five or six months: Castle Red.

What is Castle Red?

Castle Red is a survival horror video game created in RPG Maker VX Ace. You take on the role of Jonathon Miller, a young man who one day awakens in the courtyard of a massive castle, with no way out and no memory of how he got there. His only clues as to what's happening are a number of other people in the same predicament, and an invitation in his pocket, urging him to visit Castle Red.

As you explore the castle, you will have to sneak past many disturbing enemies, and you'll encounter a number of characters. You determine your relationship with each character, but be warned: your choices have consequences.

Castle Red contains six different endings, and a single playthrough will take somewhere between one and three hours depending on which ending you end up getting.

Praise be.

Where can I get Castle Red?

The game is available for download on its RMN page. Simply download, install*, and start playing!

*Windows OS strongly recommended

Sorry. Have to postpone my LP due to a cold, but I'll play it soon.

Liz! I tried LPing this game, but there appears to be a glitch. My first LP didn't work out because of a problem with my recorder, and when I tried again, I ran into a problem. When I closed the menu after reading the second note, I couldn't move. The arrow keys just kept making the cursor moving sound, as if I still had the menu open. Which is weird, cause that didn't happen the first time.

That's odd... I never encountered that during playtests, and someone on RMN has posted saying he's beaten it, and mentioned nothing of a glitch.

Tell me every circumstance surrounding the glitch and I'll see if I can replicate it, and then maybe figure out what happened.

I can't remember every circumstance exactly. It was right after I met Howard. I took a couple steps, then read the new personal note. When I closed the menu again, I couldn't move. It could have just been a fluke, since it didn't happen the third time.

Also, it seems I will be unable to do the LP, because my screencap is full of shit. So sorry about that.

The game's awesome though. You did pretty good.

Cool... Although dear god this lp... Especially at the beginning the game audio just completely drowns out his voice.

Also so hey I beat Castle Red... Sort of...

I think I got a non-standard game over

Ending F: Eternal Love.

I like that it let's you do that. Kudos Liz. Gonna try and get some other endings now.

Edit: So I played again from my save and went past Ending F and through much of the following part... Got to the hedge maze and through the hedge maze and then died and realized I had not saved since the graveyard and was like... No I am not doing all that again... So I'm done playing for today. Sorry Liz.

Finally played some more Castle Red! I got through The Hedgemaze again died numerous times on the wolves before getting past. Got lost and traveled all over before realizing I just needed to go through a portal to get to the main house area and go to the basement then went through the basement made a deal with margaery and died repeatedly in the area just past her before rage quitting for the night.

Also on my second playthrough of the hedgemaze I heard something I missed last time.

Your recorded message. To which my answer at the time was "No you condescending jerk" *Grumble Grumble. Trudging through really annoying maze*

Anyway loving the game aside from that damn maze. Hopefully I'll get back to it and past this part soon.
