Hey folks at Kisareth! I'm sorry for the delayed response. I enjoyed the game for the old school feel of the old Super NES RPGs. The music score was fantastic, and I really loved the NPC character interaction here. I'm looking forward for more when you bring out Episode 2 next week!

Thank you for the comments! We encourage you to leave a review as well on here and give us any and all feedback, as we do love to hear from folks like yourself. :)

As for Episode 2, we posted up on our social media earlier (though you must have missed it) that Episode 2 is being delayed until early 2014 due to a quite literal computer crash. Our CEO's computer actually crashed to the floor, and while the majority of files were backed up and what not, it put our team in a holding pattern for awhile and QA is going to need time to test out the game thoroughly before release, so we made the decision to delay it. The demo for Episode 2 will be out in a few days though.

From the time I went through this game, I enjoyed it and even now I found it enjoyable even more. When I'm done with Ep. I, I'll be more than ready to take on Episode II!

This game is truly worth the price! The graphics have a classic look, yet still convey the awesomeness of the game! The story is the true gem, departing from the norms of such RPG's as Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, etc. The music is beatiful and haunting...so yes, go buy this game!
