It's been a long time since I posted here. I've been working on my own metroidvania called Crimson Fog via Game Maker Studio. I did show some custom textures for it a few years ago known as Project Aura. You play as a bat named Ralph as he goes on an adventure to obtain 7 Crystal Medallions hidden in dungeons with the help of a cult known as the Crimson Fog. Along the way, there will be quests unlocked in Cedrus Village as you progress through the game.

The only controllers I know for certain installed are the Logitech Precision pad, Xbox PC controller, and the standard PC desktop controls that you'll be familiar with if you've played Terraria. I had some issues with gamepad detection with other computers, so there might be trouble with gamepad connection. I'll try to fix it later on. Details on the controller input are included in the uploaded file.

I've been working on it for years, mostly because I was learning as I went. I'll likely need someone else to compose music as it's too frustrating trying to make it fit the tone. I made sure to at least complete the first dungeon as well as it's mini-boss and primary boss fights before putting up the demo. The planned scope and scale of it will be pretty lengthy, which is why I don't have a deadline at this point.

* Update - I added 2 extra save points, one for Aronia Glades and one for Boreal Crypts. I also added an extra mook and swapped a few enemies because I figure the lack of variety might have been causing repetition. Save point data is dynamic, so you may end up in a different save room if you still have a file.
