Story of a Lost Sky is a Turn Based Strategy RPG with gameplay that is similar to Fire Emblem. Units are placed on a tile map and each side takes turns moving and attacking. Outside the battle map, the player is able to customize their characters and equip new spells and traits. The game is developed in Python using the Pygame library. A Windows executable is available on our downloads page. Mac OSX and Linux are only supported through source version. You’ll need to install Python v2.X (Python 3.X is not supported.) and the latest version of Pygame v1.9.1 as of this post.
Latest Release Announcement (Version 1.0.0)
February 11th, 2015
It's been almost seven years since we started this project. Version 1.0.0 represents the first story complete build of our game.
New enemy portraits were contributed by Keyk who has also significantly revised the story of the first four chapters. Additionally, new music pieces were contributed by Crescentia including a preparing for battle song and the theme for the final battle.
We sincerely thank our development team for their hard work and contributions to this project. Without their support we could not have made it this far.
Q & A
- What are the major changes in the latest version?
- Chapters 1-4 have been heavily edited by Keyk.
- Addition of Chapter 5, completing the main story and side quests that wrap up loose threads from the story.
- Lots of bug and balance fixes
- Couple of new portraits from Keyk
- What's left to be done?
- With the main story done, we're on to polishing and balance tweaking. Additionally some of our art assets are still placeholders, so we'd like to get the final version of those in place.
- Are old save files compatible with this release?
- Yes, with a few caveats: Save state data is preserved, though the player's current position on the world map is reset to the Netherworld. If any traits are present that have been tweaked, they will be updated to the latest version.
- I have a bug report or suggestion for improvement. How do I report it?
- We have an issue tracker hosted right here. We would greatly welcome any bug reports or suggestions for improvement
- What platform is this for?
- We have an executable build for Windows, but since we are using Python/Pygame, this game should also work with Mac OSX and Linux. The prerequisites for running from source are Python 2.X and Pygame 1.9.1 Please download the source code release for those platforms.
- For Linux, there is also a ArchLinux Package and an AnthonOS package (Chinese).
- Fedora Linux users, please see this note if you run into an Unrecognized Music Format error.
