Altered Ancient Gears 2 Title Screen

Remember that ambitious JRPG I mentioned here just a while back?

It's out! It has as of the first of this month officially been released, free for all! You can get it not only for Windows but also for both Mac and Linux.

Click those links for instant downloads! The little hub here should be updated soon too, with these same links and some more info regarding DLC content. Among other things. Spoilers possible.

If you want to get into more of the lore or reach out to developer extraordinaire Sai feel free to check out the official AAG page here.

Or just dive into the game. There's an interactive pamphlet of sorts with backstory and character bios included there as well. Note that there may be typos, as the game is as expansive as it is and release came before total revision, but hopefully it's never to the point it distracts from the story.

There are now also three DLC packs included - for anyone who seeks stronger foes than the ones available within the main story - and more may get added if there's a demand for it. You should be able to just carry over your save file to the next update if so.

A walkthrough and guide for the game is currently in the works as well! Was planning on trying something similar myself but looking at this realistically Sai will probably provide one waaay before I do.

Last but not least I now have an official spot in the credits. :) Can't wait to play through and see that for myself as soon as time allows, but don't wait on me now! Go get it! Links above!

Feel free to share the game with friends and anyone you know that might enjoy it, and let Sai know if you appreciate it or want more.

I'll update this when I get to updating that hub. Till then: Enjoy.

UPD: Finally updated that hub. :) And apparently a sequel's in the works too now! More to come...

Altered Ancient Gears II

AAG2 Menu

There's a new game on the horizon!

There always is, of course, but this one's one I've played a part in the development of - albeit with unfortunately time-limited doses of early testing - as well as been bestowed upon the honors of my own playable in-game character! He goes by the name of Drane, and he's a beast tamer.

Drane's backstory's mine; the rest is all in line with the game's main story. Get into it yourself to find out more and see what he goes for!

The game in question is a pretty ambitious somewhat underground JRPG, set in the expansive world of Valgardia, with an adventure-packed storyline that follows the mysterious boy Mobius on a quest - through lands far too wide where fates do collide - for justice but maybe most importantly truth.

It goes by the name of Altered Ancient Gears II, and is being brought to life by the maybe equally mysterious New York-based developer Sai, in honor of his son, and as a homage of sorts to all games within the genre; not least as a test as to the capabilities of the Game Maker engine in creating a world that sometimes seems to defy the limits of what it should be capable of. And of course: just making a great game for all to play and enjoy.

But you'd best head over here to read more about it from the mouth of the maker, and maybe fetch an early download while you're at it. ;) There's still room for contribution if you'd like to get involved!

I'll be polishing up a page for the game on site as I play through it myself. Head over here for a slimmed down summary; eventually maybe a little guide and more in-depth exploration of the game. Whatever time allows for, and whatever it's alright to post if so. ;)

The final version of the game's yet to be released but Sai's looking for feedback; players who'd like to delve a bit deeper into this wartorn yet wondrous alternative world! Here's that link again! Enjoy.

Something Living On The Edge Here...

Something good just dropped on the Grounds today!

It's just like the one and only one it was based on but a little shorter... and smaller... and more square... and low-res... and hold breath... it's in PICO-8!

Which is awesome! Get over to NG and get nostalgic and possibly a little motion sick too if you're anything like me but never mind that go go go.
