How do I finish the first year?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am a newbie in the game.

 

I just finished my first year in Academagia, and ... NOTHING!

The game is over.

 

I still don't have any idea what is supposed to happen at the end, what I did wrong or right.

All my final exam marks were 100 and higher, I didn't finish any adventure, but went through several stages in some of them.

 

I guess I need to know something (is it a secret or what?) to be able to start the second year.

 

So, what do I do now?

No, no secret at all! Year 2 is a forthcoming game, and you will be able to port your last save to that year, when it is released.

 

We are currently working on all the writing for Year 2, and expect to release the game in 2012- no fixed date yet, however. :)

Yes- the game does end abruptly, although we're discussing adding a status screen to sum up some characteristics (I know that I like to review my Characters at the end of the game, for instance.)

 

This issue will disappear shortly after the release of Year 2, however, since the continuation is meant to be seamless.

 

For saving, we do not have an auto-save, but it is a requested feature and we are considering it strongly. Unfortunately, you must have a save presently in order to progress into Year 2. :(

Thank you for the explanations, Legate of Mineta.

 

I don't worry about saves much - in any case it is interesting to start a new game from scratch.

 

But I would absolutely like the ability to compare scores at the end of the year, to understand what was done wrong and how different tactics prove themselves.

 

Some sense of accomplishment is missing.

I agree with you- we haven't made an overall decision, but I would guess that we'll eventually add a status screen or two to the end of the game.

How about actually meeting our parent and they comment on how good/bad we did in the final exam, and you tell them about the abridged version of your successful adventures.

 

Then some encouraging or frowning words from them about your choice of maxed skill (vary expectation by background) and final judgment based on your overall progress scoring.

 

The scoring would be something like 1 points for every skill at 5 points and 2 points for 10 points, 5 points for passing each final exam, 5 points for an completed adventure, 2 points for each attribute, -1 points for each reprimand and detention, +2 if money > certain amount (Or don't care if wealthy background), -5 points if Mastery or gate > 5 (+10 if The Secret Heritage background), double point if taken skill that parent like/prefer, and finally add parent approval to the score.

 

Something unreasonably complicated like that. :)

It's a good suggestion- but I think we'll leave something in depth like that for Year 2, since you are already meeting your parents for summer vacation and, as you will see, that has ramifications of its own. :)

Wow, was it 5 years ago?

 

Any updates on how to get to the second year?

The newest patch still kicked me out after 28 Kaliri

 

My final exam marks this time were between 230-470 but no indication of accomplishment still. :(

Yes, that was two months shy of 6 years ago, and yes, Y2 still has not been finished (or, obviously, released). It's being worked on, but...things happened.

 

Many, many things happened...

"Some fun things. You know, when you actually get to see it :) "

 

Any progress on DLC 17 (Beta), now that I'm here anyway, actually?

Hoping for something before the end of November, at least. Speaking of, has that final piece of artwork been finished and send in?
