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.

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.

- 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".

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.

Game looks and feels great. Really love how have you done the story.
Wish you would do a digimon game in future.
Oh an update? I'll go ahead and give it another shot then. If I find any bugs, have issues, etc, I'll document them.

Also I recommend using choices to allow the player to skip the intro.

Next update, there's going to be a choice to skip to the first chapter, or play the intro.
I am currently making parts of the intro playable.

This kind of compression might also help.

OMG, that's really useful. I will try this next time.
I'm experiencing heavy lagging issues. Any way I can fix it to run smoothly as in the video?

go to options then turn sync on/off or animated tiles on/off to see if it makes any difference.
I know journal log can lag if you have sync fps on.

Wow, you got so far!
You need to get the dispel lock spell.
1. Go back to Vasily's house to get the sandwich quest: buy paprika, onion, chicken.
2. Take the sandwich to Pern and give to Vasily's father. You'll be able to go into the Command tent.
3. The general will tell you to visit an old friend (an ex-thief)
I will leave it at that because I don't want to spoil the story. Good luck!
good game hope to see the next part when you can

what is the safe's combination in John's house?

look at what the date is. The format is YYMMDD. If it is the year 6064, month 1, day 9, the combination would be 640109. Hope that helps.

I have already tried this method, but it doesn't work. I have year 6064, month 2 and day 5, so I entered 640205 and it's not opening.

Never mind, I've already solved it. I had to enter 640105, even though the month shown is 2.
