October 1 2011 Brand new revamped version now available! What's new?
Quite a lot! -custom sprites/faces for the seven main characters (some are just recolorings, some are more dramatic changes) -mapping has been redone in several areas -Animated battlebacks -Animated battlers -multiple fogs -new battle menu -new general menu -new cutscenes and additional dialogue -a brand new dungeon-puzzle thing -encounter rates are more reasonable -enemies (including bosses) are more ballanced -twice as many enemytypes and twice as many troups in a given area -two songs have been updated slightly -four new superbosses hidden in the secret dungeons (the four towers) which can be accessed after that fateful wish.
This game features 100% original music (including Victory, Battle, Item, and Inn themes) written by me and my band done in an Indie Rock style. And an extremely unique and unconventional story (once you get into it).
With several major plot twists occurring throughout the progression of the 25+ hour story, what at first seems like a cliche good vs. evil quest unfolds into something much more unique. You will have to play the game to discover its surprising ending.
You are your ordinary self from our ordinary world, but one morning you awaken in a tower in a magical pre-Renaissance island kingdom. You discover you are part of an ancient prophecy and must help the recently returned prince conquer the source of evil that has overrun the land.
But all is not as it seems...
On your journey you will discover bit by bit that the quest you were sent on is more complicated and more full of intrigue than you could have imagined.
Tyrin: You. Not some pre-existing character, but actually you, the person reading this now. Tyrin is not your real name of course, but that's what people call you in this new Land of Lorewyn. Of course, you had little if any experience in swordplay in our world, but on waking in Lorewyn you find yourself exceedingly skilled. Mia says that this is because you've been magically blessed with a magical Ability called Swordplay within Lorewyn. As you level up, you will learn "skills" related to Swordplay.
Mia: an Elemantal Mage who was assigned to Tyrin Tower. She's bubbly and nice and fresh from training, so is eager to prove herself and her magic.
Baeon: the prince of Lorewyn. There are several strange facts about him. Firstly, no one knew Lorewyn had a prince. But the king reveals that Baeon's mother had concealed her pregnancy and ran away to birth him in secrecy. Unfortunately, Baeon was found unconscious today, remembering nothing of his past. His Ability is vast Strength. But this is useless to him as he is completely unskilled in weaponry. He's much more interested in spell casting, but lacks proficiency in anything but curative magic.
Sylar: a young man from a noble family. His sister Sylea is thought to have been abducted by Radasol. Sylar was too lazy and disinterested in training in weaponry or magic, so his quest in finding and freeing his sister is proving difficult.
Yasian: an old, forgetful mage who might turn out to be none of those things.
Sylea: a very skilled archer from a noble family with super eyesight as her Ability. She and her brother have more in common than either knew and will enjoy.

I guess it's FFVII music it reminds me of, not sure which track though. Eerily similar though.
You said the castle track? Castle Lorewyn? The first castle?
Funny enough, FFVII is my least fav FF (that I've played, I'm sure I would dislike VIII more) and I never finished it. I'm curious what song of mine you think sounds like a song from it. To be compared with the great Uematsu is an honor!

Whoa! Are you still including the RTP in the self-extractor?
Yup. Some of the people playing it don't have RTP. I suppose I could upload separate versions without RTP.
Are you using mp3s instead of oggs?
Nope. All oggs now.
I just... don't remember the game being over 100MB,
Once I finished it, it was just over 100MB. It's a huge game. At least in comparison to most peoples here. It has Over 200 maps (and most of those and more than 100 switches. I think it is at least as large as FF1 (which I sort of used as my standard. I made sure to have at least as many towns as FF1 has and at least as many dungeons as FF1 has).
and my computer I'm using right now tells me it'll be over an hour to download.
Yikes. When I click to download it, it estimates twenty some minutes.
