So I've made an old school RPG based on the original Final Fantasy. It's a hack, so it's free to play, but you need to patch an original version of the game.
Here's why I love the game I've made:
-12 classes to choose from at the start.
-Fast gameplay, hardly any story getting in the way.
-Balanced like a mofo for five years: many different strategies are valid.
-It's on a NES emulator, so you have save states, frame skipping and other tools.
- It's even designed to play as a Rogue-like if you want (i.e. don't revive anybody).
Here's the site:
(there are also links to walkthroughs and Let's Plays)
I'm not making any money out of this, nor am I attempting a career. This was just a hobby of mine and I'm spreading the love to all those who like this kind of game.
