What the heck is this?
Moriya Shrine: The Game is a meme game made in RPG Maker.
The story takes place in the past, starting at around October 2017, following through various events in the Moriya Shrine Discord server's history. With a few exaggerations, of course.
Follow the wacky adventures of Sci and the Hug Crew as they go about solving various incidents throughout the Shrine, while protecting their friends through the power of hugs!
This game encourages exploration and is loaded with secrets and hidden things off the path of the main story.
This game is still a work in progress. As such, the game only goes up to the end of Chapter 9. More progress will steadily be made over time.
Save often. You'll never know when a technical issue could pop up.

Installing the Game
The downloaded game first comes as a .exe file. Run the file and the game will start unpacking into its own folder in the desired directory. Inside that folder is a "Game.exe", which launches the game.
This game will be quite loud when first opened. Prepare your volume mixer for trumpets.
Arrow Keys: Navigate menus, move
Z, Space or Enter: Select
X or Esc: Cancel, open menu
Shift: Sprint (in battle: make stuff go by faster)
Ctrl: Skip through text
Q and W can be used to easily switch through party members in the Status or Equipment menu.
Left and Right Arrows in the battle menu cycle through party members. Left Arrow while Sci is selected will reveal the option to escape. Right Arrow essentially skips that party member's turn.
This game is also playable with a controller, apparently.
As this is a meme game, just about all the graphics and audio are not mine. All material used belongs to their respective owners and no copyright infringement is intended.
Also yes, the game is quite huge, sitting at a gigabyte in size. There's a lot in there.
Warning: May be cringy.

What's New in Version 0.9.0
Chapter 9 released!
New dungeon, skills, bosses, and a new Boss Rematch that you can unlock after completing Chapter 9. And a couple of extra bosses afterward.
Made in partial collaboration with Moshennik for boss design, and Prixen for a handful of maps.
Previously-made save files will not work with this version, sadly. However, I've provided a pre-made save file that will drop you off towards the end of Chapter 8, where you can continue the adventure. Just insert the file into your game's main folder and it should work fine. Hopefully. I added a new save system that records your save data better.
