This game is a work of fiction. All persons, places, religions, laws and names appearing in it have no relation to the real world.




This game started out as a short story that I wrote for an English assignment during my high school days. It developed into something much more complex since Japanese animation became one of my main hobbies and inspirations.
Now all those ideas have been fully realized into a game, which I hope, everyone can enjoy.

The full name of this project is: Megami Ankhanessa no Monogatari (The story of the Goddess Ankhanessa): Journey to the East.

Current version: 3.01.
Recommended age: 13+ Contain elements of fear, cartoon violence, mild bad language and reference to alcohol.

Other games:

Set in the magical world of Eos, a shadow is forming in the east across the demilitarized zone, which separates two powerful nations, the Chaos Imperium in the east and the Holy Empire of Ankhanesia in the west.

They have been in a state of religious cold war for over half a century. The Chaos Supremacists, led by the Imperious-God-Emperor, Xanaphos the Invincible, has been amassing an army the likes of which the world has never seen before. An army bred for one purpose – the total domination of the western-lands, and the destruction of all ideologies that do not conform to its ideals.

Meanwhile in the west, the Ankhanesian Empire is fractured. A civil war has gripped the nation, and the Holy Emperor, Cyrus I, is in a coma due to the trauma of the assassination of his wife and five children.
Their deaths are a total mystery because no bodies have been found.

The story of the game begins, 14 years later, when the fragile peace between the two nations and their allies, is suddenly destroyed.


The Northern Hemisphere of Eos and the Prismoni Union:
The north pole is located at the centre of the map. The equator is around the edge.
The shape of the supercontinent bears some resemblance to a phoenix.

No random encounters. Enemies can be seen and have line of sight and their own behaviours. They have elemental strengths and weaknesses so a good strategy will save your life.

Random item placement and drops. Each playthrough will always be different.

All playable characters and bosses have voiceover.

No level grinding required. All enemies level up with the player. New allies will join the party at a similar level to the player. Certain gear will give the player an advantage.

The number of times you can use a skill is limited until you replenish it by resting or using potions. So that you can't spam the same strong attacks.
Use them wisely.

Day and night system with on-screen clock, seasons, and a dynamic lighting system.

Plenty of puzzles inspired by the game, Chip’s Challenge, a Windows 98 game to rack your brains.

Input chain commands during battles to create combo attacks to inflict more damage.

10-15 hours of non-stop adventuring.

What's new?
- A new journal log in the menu to keep track of quests.
- Optional side quests to expand the lore of Eos.
- Anya's backstory and mission that brings closure to her character.
- Secret places and new areas to visit on the world map.
- More weapons, armours and items including powerful "dark weapons".
- More class skills, weaponskills and special skills.
- Added a variety of fun and challenging minigames and puzzles.
- New characters to interact with, and bosses to defeat.
- Updated the gallery to include more information.
- More in-battle voices and music.

- An epilogue pre/post-credits.

I would not recommend using an old save file from a previous version.
Although, the main story should still work but the balancing will be off, and you'll miss out on the new features that 3.01 has to offer.

What's next?
This is a major update so please let me know if you find any bugs/glitches.
The sequel to this game will get a little update in the future so that the continuity, graphics etc, is more consistant with this one.

Thanks in advance for playing. Hope you will like the update.

Great game! Downloaded and Subbed. Looking forward to finishing it.
Thanks! Let me know how you get on, or any problems with the game.
I have a question:
Any way to save Anya? She was a very likeable character. A shame she got the axe even though she had a hidden agenda.

Nah, there's no way to save her unfortunately. The world is a harsh place. You cannot trust anyone because they can betray you at anytime, as long as they've got a reason to do it. The Chaos Imperium is manipulative and sadistic. They are the worst kind of enemy you can have in a story in my opinion.
What is the safe for in the basement?
How do I get the combination for it?
Btw, good work on the game. Looks impressive.

The safe is for devs only. You cannot get the combination for it.

Thanks for the compliment. Glad you like the game.

God mode, unlock all the gallery, heal all potion, save anywhere. For game testing purposes. Also, there is secret room.

Any chance of you releasing the combination for the safe? It's not exactly the proper way of playing the game through the first time, but I wouldn't mind playing around with the game again with some extra options.
Hey Nakoruru, Just completed the monastery and up to chapter 5. I think I am near the end! Amazing job with all the events that made up the massive siege of the capital. That must've taken a while to do in Maker.

As for the heroine:
She has come a long way from a weak female character to a strong heroine who can shape the destiny of the world. Love the megaman mechanic where the character steals the boss's skill when defeated.


The statue in the museum...
How do I get the glowing orb thing?

Answering your question
To get the glowing orb from the statue, interact with the incinerator. The curator will move out of the way. This is the only chance to get it otherwise he will move back to his original position when you leave the map.
Just finished the game. Going to write a review to express my thoughts. Looking forward to the sequel.

Go back to Pern where you gave Vasily's father his sandwich. He was blocking the entrance to the big tent. Now he has moved so you can enter.
Hope that helps.
How to the choices in the proloque affect the later game? I guess not much since you can skip the proloque (then you won't even get the questions)?

Edit: Nevermind. Deleted the game. Isn't fun. I don't like if saving is locked only to certain save points. Plus the battles seemed too long and tedious. Always had to use heal items after a battle. And there seemed to be a lot of battles where "escape" was not possible. I played until the hut in some forest chapter 2 where a merchant was then I got bored.

Plot seemed okay. Usually I don't like if japanese names (or german stuff in the skill names) is used just to sound cool. But the background story hinted at and the quest log (updating frequently) - were good. Very good logging of quests and info.

But I just can't stand the gameplay. Since I prefer story I'd rather have some enter pressing combat system with super quick and easy fights and saving allowed everywhere. Harder/lengthier combat only if the system is fun and if I can save frequently. Might get tired at some point where it takes still some time until next save point available.
Is it possible to defeat the mirrors inside the Monastery in the new version? They killed the team with their reflections. The team defeated them in the old version.
I found the picture 8 in the old version. But some how I missed it in the new version. Your spoiler said Waterfall cave, letter. Which chapter is it?
Is the last Ruby Skull inside Monastery in chapter 5. Your spoiler said "Monastery near the stairs on the right"

You can only kill the mirrors using non elemental attacks, so Victoria's Flying kick and Fist of Fury skill will damage them; or Risa's Telekinesis, Rauf's Barrage and Rocket Ammo. Don't use any of Karys' magic. Make sure your equipped weapon doesn't do elemental attacks so most of your Weaponskills will do the most damage.

Picture 8 is in the cave with the sleeping scientist (Merrin Forest/Chapter 2).

Last Ruby skull is in the wall opposite the right stairs as you enter the monastery for the first time.

Hope that helps.
I love it ! It is so amazing that I felt frustrated it ended quickly. I cannot wait to play JTTE 2. Meanwhile, I'll just play it again. BTW, there were several places who needed a code ( box in my house ? and where the girl with the ring died . and maybe another place too.) where can I find it?
yeah, and the tournament with the psion messiah ( I guess ) where I have to meet someone at the harbour is very hard to pass. Is there any way to pass it ? like tips ?

Hi, it means a lot to me when someone tells me they've completed the game. You're the first to have completed the new version that I know of. Congrats!!!

The safe in the house is for devs only so you can ignore it. I will PM you the code if you want.
The code for the puzzle where the girl died is...
basically prime numbers, 2,3,5,7,11,13. The other tomb is the opposite, 4,6,8,9,10,12 (Composite numbers). I wrote all the answers on the hints page at the top or you can find it in the treehouse in Merrin Forest.


To beat Matrix, you just need to practise and hit the right keys when they are exactly inside the circle to get critical damage. He is there for the people who are really good at the psychic duel mini game. You get the most powerful transducer when you beat him.
