A downloadable game for Windows


Introduction :

ⵡⴰ ⴷ ⵜⴰⴱⵔⴰⵜ ⵏ ⵜⴰⵢⵔⵉ ⵉ ⵎⵉⵜⵔⵓⵡⵉⴷ-ⵠⴰⵏⵢⴰ, ⵙⵙⵎⵏⵉⴷ ⵉⵊⵊⵏ ⴰⵎⴰⴹⴰⵍ ⵢⴻⵜⵜⵡⴰⴳⵎ ⴷ ⵙⴳ ⵏ ⵜⴰⴷⵍⵙⴰ ⵏ ⵉⵎⴰⵣⵉⴳⵏ ⴷ ⵉⵎⵕⵕⵓⴽⵉⵢⵏ

Mira: The Legend of the Djinns is a classic Metroidvania style game to be released on the PC. The story follows the adventures of Yuba, a treasure hunter and explorer who travels the vast expanse of the Desert Ocean, and Mira, a mysterious Djinn who has lost her memories.

We have been working on Mira: The Legend of the Djinns for a little over a year.  The mechanics and overall gameplay are inspired by games we loved growing up, including Super MetroidCastlevania, and The Legend of Zelda. With a combat system inspired from games like Devil May Cry, and Ninja Gaiden. 

The world of the game is inspired by Moroccan and Amazigh culture, language, and spiritual traditions.


Background Story :

During a routine job, Yuba discovers an ancient Necropolis. Deep within, he encounters Mira, the first Djinn anyone’s seen in generations. To regain her lost memories, Yuba agrees to form a spiritual Bond, something no human has done outside of half-remembered legends.

Together, Mira and Yuba embark on an epic quest to rediscover Mira’s lost memories and the secret history of Fallen Amazgesh, a world of ruins and devastation and the only home Yuba has ever known.

Along the way, the pair will discover new friends and deadly enemies, track down priceless artifacts and dangerous ruins, battle against mutated creatures and corrupted spirits, and come face to face with the very cause of the cataclysm that ended Mira’s world and created Yuba’s.

Hyblitz (of LittleKnightGames) is a friend of mine from the PGMMV community, I first played this back during the 2019-2020 PGMMV Game Dev Challenge. I understand this has gone through some rework/revisions and I wanted to give this game some attention and feedback given all the changes.

Not sure if anyone has told you this recently, but your game breaks right after the introduction. The protagonist is stuck running in place after the button tutorial prompts and I can't proceed. I see other comments from a couple months ago not pointing this out, so I assume whatever broke was recent.

I won't rate your game until it's fixed and I can go through what you have, but I'll share my impressions so far (and will edit this comment later on as the things are fixed):

-Option menu didn't work...? (I understand this is still a WIP, but you should have a basic options screen in there. I'm talking even just a volume slider for BGM, SFX, and Voice channel if applicable). It was weird to have the option selectable on the title screen but then get booted back to the menu.

-I assume you're using Joe's action text plugin, you should have SFX play when a character is speaking and the message is writing out. Something a bit understated but noticeable.

-This is a little extra effort, but you should be able to press "A" again during a message to skip to the next one. Think of people who want to speed run your game, or are replaying it and have already seen all the dialogue.

-Your tutorial/button prompts/etc. look great! So does the new character design. I did kinda prefer the cuter/kirby looking version from before but the pixel art on the new version is amazing.

Hello!

Thanks for checking out our game!  I wanted to ask you a couple of questions about your experience.  When did you get stuck running in place exactly?  I just tried playing the game myself and I was able to progress through all of the early tutorial prompts without getting stuck so I am curious where exactly it is happening for you.

I was also able to skip dialogue with the "A" button during the tutorials and early part of the game so I wanted to know what part of the talking you were not able to skip?

The options menu in-game is also working for me, but the one on the title menu does not so I assume that is the one you are talking about, we will certainly fix that in future updates.

Howdy!

So I've got an update for you. After reading your response I redownloaded your game, and the same bug happened to me again. To be more helpful I decided to record it for you, but every single time I tried to recreate it, it wouldn't happen again.

I decided to delete the game files, and use a fresh set, and the bug happened. I don't know 'how' these two things are related exactly. I did also notice your button prompt for 'A' had timing that was thrown off for the last two tutorial windows. That definitely has something to do with it, but the question is what is throwing that timing off in the first place? I've sent the footage to Hyblitz.

Also, as for the message text: I noticed after the initial section, you can do what I mentioned with skipping messages. Though in that opening section pressing A to skip messages doesn't work before the message is finished writing out.

Quirky and fun, concerned about replay-ability though 

We're including speed-running in our planning and also looking at doing some extra game modes if we can.

A cool demo, the artwork is good, the controls pretty solid, and I think I actually did pretty well. Saving didn't seem to work though but, early build... it's understandable. Good luck with the KS campaign! 

An updated version will be available later today, it will have some extra stuffs, and a lot of bugs fixed. 
Thank you so much for the video, feedback, and playing !

Hey, glad you liked the video. Please tell me one of the fixed bugs is related to saving. :)

Yes the save system works fine now

I cannot get this to play. Says I need VCRUNTIME140.dll and MSVCP140.dll. When I tried to grab the first one, my PC says I already have an updated version of this. I am not tech savvy so I have no idea what to do to fix this.

Sorry to hear that you had a problem running the game, to fix that you will need to download outdated versions of the dll files, check if the VC2010, VC2012, VC2013, and VC2015 are installed on your PC. you can find these in Microsoft official website.

I hope we gave you a solution.

Is there a brief list of the keyboard controls used for the demo? I am a fool and can't figured out how to actually start playing. (up and down arrows to select a menu option but not actual trigger it, and esc switched between fullscreen and windowed) Title screen music and art were very nice though.

We are sorry to hear that, and Yes, you can actually Press F1, while in game, and go to Settings > Operation Settings, then a window will pop up where you can set the inputs you want for your Keyboard, we hope that helps.
Also we are going to release an updated version of the demo next week with better keyboard controls

i wonder if the final product will be free 

Hmm... No I think not XD the plan is $15

oh ok thanks for replay lol (btw I'm from Algeria)

Gave this game a whirl, and i am impressed with the designs and the graphics. I love the skills the character Eir, i had little frame rate drops, which only occured when the saw blades and a action skill is used, other than that its hardly noticable if any.. Main gripe is the snake boss...i did everything in my power to beat him...surely this boss is bugged out. I enjoy the game and would love to play more. Here is my playthrough of it if you are interested in viewing.

Thank you so much for playing, we are really sorry to hear that you had some FPS drops and also the Horned Snake boss had an unfortunate bug where he become invincible and you can't beat it, that's why we made an updated page where you can get a fixed version of this demo, with less bugs https://littleknightgames.itch.io/mira-update check it out and i hope you can finally beat that boss and enjoy the rest of the demo, thank you so much again for playing and for the kind words much appreciation <3 and will def watch your video !!!
