Magical Diary (Sim/RPG) [Commercial]

#1 Post by papillon » Mon Jun 20, 2011 3:38 pm

Yes, it's finally reached its official launch date!

Magical Diary Webpage

What you get:

Customisable main character (you can see some that people ahve made so far here on the online yearbook)
Five full romance paths (GxB and GxG)
Over 70 spells to learn - and they DO things, they're not just stat boosts
Lots of dungeons to explore, and every puzzle has multiple solutions
Tons of secrets and trophies to unlock
Full text comes to about 150K words, my biggest game yet...
Discount on the full game if you blog about it!

And lots of other stuff that I could go on talking about all day because I've been living this thing for a year now. Don't make me talk at you, just go to the webpage and watch the trailer and play the demo!

Several people from this forum have been in on the playtest for a while now, so hopefully some of them can pop up and tell you about a few things they've enjoyed too. :)

Definitely worth every penny. Anyone who enjoys magic schools, romance, action, drama and in-depth characters will love this game. I highly recommend it <3

I remember getting excited about this game back when I heard it was inspired by/poking fun at bad fanfiction on the blog about it. But when I began playing I wasn't sure entirely what to expect, certainly not nearly as many heartwarming scenes that were present in addition to the comical ones! It's really a very charming and fun game, and definitely one of my favorites.

Played the demo, and I vouch that I will definitely buy this game :D
Does anyone know if the full version is a download or comes as a disk?

This is without doubts the best and longest game from Hanako so far. I am happy that she went with the "long game, premium price" route like I did with Planet Stronghold. I think people are tired of cheap but short games :)

If you click the buy link on the webpage you will get a downloadable version.

I *do* have disk copies available. I haven't put them on the website yet. When we put them up, there will be a discount for people who have already bought the downloadable version, but if you know you definitely absolutely want a hard copy and you have Paypal, I can sell you one now. PM me with your mailing address if you're interested in that and I can set up a custom order with the shipping cost.

Played the demo and thoroughly enjoyed it. The transitions where the chars go up and down from the bottom of the screen is quite possibly the funniest thing ever. Though, this is the only game I've ever toggle transitions off (and was o_O when the chars still had theirs), because the star wipe got old kinda fast. The characters are funny, and I like the variety of colors and races going around, even though the game is supposedly set in the real world (blame: magic!). It feels very much just like Harry Potter but in America, so props for that, even shamelessly so, but I'm not sure the origins of the project (never really read up on it until now), so if it's seeded as a parody, then you're succeeding. :) Definitely funny, and comedy is harrrrd, so high fives. I liked char creation and I almost flipped out when I saw that you could customize the character even further. I immediately bought glasses just because I could. I particularly liked learning spells, because it's obvious you're going to need them and I had a huge gotta-catch-them-all moment even though it was just the demo. ^^; I could say other things, developer to developer, but I'd rather just say congrats on this game release. :) Congrats! It's awesome.

The game is nice and funny.
I decided not to attend any class and keep sleeping.
And, so, the player was expelled from the school.

@ Papillon
Thanks! I think I'll download the full version first and order the hard copy later since I'm too impatient to wait for shipping :P

@ Wright1000
Wow never thought that could happen :lol:
