Images

Here's a zip​ of some images of the game, as well as the logo and a few other supporting images.  If there's something you'd like added, drop me an email!

Sample Blurb

An SNES-style RPG full of comedy, loveable characters, tons of drama and a light seasoning of saving the world. Play through dungeons involving real-time puzzle-focused combat; explore a world full of stories and mystery; experience an epic tale of love, mystery and determination.

Sample Teaser

Travel with knights, mages, orphans, warlords, princesses and fishermen as they struggle to stay true to their hearts.

Explore a world of castles and empires, built on the ruins of a civilization shattered to save a dream thought lost.

Help nine people find their paths and discover how to resolve a promise that was kept when it was fated to be broken.

Sample Description 

A ~25 hour, story-focused 16-bit JRPG in a mostly fantasy setting.

The story is character-focused, with each major character having a unique arc that intertwines with a central narrative.  There is a lot of humor mixed with some pretty heavy drama, however the overall tone is optimistic.  The plot is fairly operatic, so you should expect big problems and big emotions.  The world is rich and filled with mysteries from a long-lost past.  There is a good chance that, at some point, it'll need a bit of saving.

 

The gameplay is inspired by classics like FF6 and Zelda, but with modern polish and sensibilities.  You'll spend your time exploring major cities and dungeons, talking to people, fighting hundreds of unique monsters and solving a variety of puzzles\mini-games.  Combat happens on the map (no battle screens) and in real time, but it's not about button mashing: there's always a calm way to defeat any monster, if you can figure it out.

Anything else?

 

If there are any other resources you'd like which I've omitted, just email me (longjourneytofarewell@gmail.com) and I'd be happy to make them available!  Thank you so much for your interest!
