Shrug of God, part of the "Word of God" family of tropes (thus the name).  I'm not aware of anywhere that this relates to Reives; I'm not gonna fault him for not spoiling parts of the plot we haven't reached yet in the plot.  If anything, he's gone out of his way to insist that the prologue is not going to be the same as the ending.

I think he was not referring to Quintessence but The Mirror Lied.

TV Tropes forum thread: Exists!  (I got tired of waiting, and it's close enough to Saturday).

@Squall:
Many thanks as always! You're like the official Freebird ambassador to Germany, heheh.

@Brick:
Heheh that's okay, it pretty much is Saturday in many parts of the world already anyhow. You just made me realize that I've yet to update the main website with the updated link to the 1-11 package, which I just scrambled and did, so it's all good now. Thanks for the rather flattering opener! There will probably be some backlash on the thread at the story-gameplay-ratio of the game among other things, but I hope some there enjoy it. c:

Ehh, considering the purpose of TvTropes, I'm hoping that people there won't have a problem with story-to-gameplay ratios that fall closer to visual novel than dungeon crawl.  Hoping.

Heading out for lunch at the moment; after I come back, it's time for some mass distribution.  :gothat!:

I do agree with the comment of the troper who mentioned the stats. While making Alden level 98 gave me a good chuckle, I really think you should get a different menu system. I mean I LOVE that menu system, but it makes the game feel lacking in gameplay (since you can see so much that isn't used). You might want to look for a very simple CMS, or script your own (that's what I'm doing in my own game, since a lot of mechanics don't fit well with traditional RPGs). If you gave it a simple one scene CMS from which you can see your party, use items, and save/quit, then it would feel so much less empty. I mean there are no stats in Legend of Zelda, but no one really thinks about it because there isn't a section of the menu mentioning irrelevant numbers.

On an on topic note, I love how much your advertising this game. It's amazing, and I am glad to know more and more people are getting to see it :)

Hey guys! I just came over to see if there is some progress on Quintessence because it has been quite a while ^^

Will the series continue / has it already continued past Chapter XI that I'm not aware of?

A brave soul has recently stepped in to help with the open-source project: http://freebirdgames.com/forum/index.php?topic=4823.msg177794

Sadly, progress has been minuscule overall. Nothing new apart from what's already out.

Does someone know if the quintessence will be one day finished, I just loved where it was going and I can be patient as long as I can see the ending.

Thank you

Yes, it will be.
