Everything… is everything in our existence just a replica of someone elses?

Your identity defines who you are. But what if you couldn’t have your own identity, or it was being eclipsed by someone elses? What would you do about it?
Kumo Atsureki is your typical 19 year old…if typical 19 year old did mercenary work for a living. His latest mission, however, will trigger a chain of events that will not only force him to face the past and define his identity, but uncover deadly secrets that have laid buried for generations. What is the C-Virus? Who is behind it? These questions and more await you…

Cosplay Crisis is a Final Fantasy crossover fan game that has been in the works for the last three years. Boasting custom battle graphics, Final Fantasy VII’s classic Materia system and remastered and remixed tracks (including Maybe Blue Fields Await and Still More Fighting), Cosplay Crisis is a unique Final Fantasy experience taking place in a new albeit similar world.



Cosplay Crisis is a complete full-length RPG (stemming upwards of 9 hours in length depending how you play). If issues DO crop up, please check this list of unfixable bugs before ranting at me about them ^^''

-Anything with materia.
-If you save on the world map once you have the Ragnarok, close the program, and re-open it, your ship will be back in Tokyo. For the love of christ, don't do it!
-The 'Blasting Zone' animation appears over the Battle Status. I fiddled with it far too much as it is, so I left it.
-There's some issues with the item menu and the battle status when in battle. I have tried MULTIPLE TIMES to fix this, and haven't been successful. I'm sorry guys, I'm not a programmer, and I couldn't figure out what was wrong.
-Some bosses in the final battles don't appear immediately. I don't know why that happens- I've tried fiddling with it but couldn't fix it.
-Common event skills don't update the battle status straight away (1000 Needles and Shock). I tried to fix this, too, but couldn't fathom a way to fully refresh the battle status through the common event call...so it has been left.
-If you try to save when CC is lagging or you have a ridiculous amount of saves (depends on your computer- my one is quite powerful, so I have about 45 saves and don't get this) the save system MAY hang. I recommend playing CC without anything else open so it has lots of RAM to chew through. RMXP's fault, not mine. The anti-'script is hanging' script didn't play well with CC, before you suggest it.
-If you use a Kumo/Levi limit break while critical, the characters won't reappear immediately. I'm not sure why this is, and haven't got a clue how to fix it.

Addressing something important

Hi All, I bet you're all wondering where this notif is coming from and why.

Recently I've waxed nostalgic over the game, as it's now less than six months to the game's true 10 year anniversary (2.2's upload date was Feb 2012 I think), as well as some new people coming into play the game. Although it has been 10 years, it seems Cosplay Crisis still attracts new players from time to time, even though they don't interact with the gamepage.

This brought to my attention something: the use of the word "r*tard" in the game's intro. This is a pretty serious slur, and I had entirely forgotten about its presence, but seeing it I felt a pang of guilt and disappointment in my younger self.

I obviously don't speak like that anymore, and while I could make the excuse of it being a 'different time' back then, honestly 2011-2012 it was still a pretty shit word to use. Kumo, the culprit, isn't exactly a thoughtful noodle about it either, and I have a vague recollection of putting it in to reflect the fact he can be kind of a dick, but regardless of my intentions it has no place in the game at all, and especially not one that is not countered or addressed as being shitty by the rest of the cast.

So, if you saw it and felt hurt by it, by my use of it, I apologise, deeply and sincerely. It was wrong, I was wrong to use it, and I completely understand if you choose not to forgive me for it, because there are no excuses. Please do not try to excuse me in the comments here, nor do not accept the apology if this meant nothing to you - it is not for you. I should've known better, and that's the long and short of it.

My gut tells me there are probably other examples somewhere in the game. I could very much just upload a version with those pieces of dialogue removed, but...given the state of the game, I might as well do another bug purge, fix up mapping errors, and repair any incongruities in the narrative, if I'm in a position of obligation to upload. I still remember exactly what the plot was, ten years after the fact.

So consider this a formal announcement of an Anniversary Edition/3.0, which I'll release 10 years to the day of 2.2's upload. More likely than not, I'll still have bugs. The fact the game runs is a miracle in and of itself. But it won't have frankly alarming and poor word choices which'll be nice.

I'll save any further details for later, as the first part of this is really the important bit, but feel free to ask questions (or request features?) in the comments below.

Ff8 is my favourite game too, i've always wanted to see an FF8 prequel about Laguna.

I don't realy get this new game to be honest, what is this compared to the old one?

Is it a scene from later on in the game or somthing? I was wondering why i didn't start as Kumo, Levi and Miri going to a Cosplay? :D

This is -earlier-. This is the reason they end up going to cosplay in Japan, because they're trying (in futility) to escape the fact their lives are like Final Fantasy. This is the catalyst.

This is the final demo I'm releasing, so it doesn't give away much of the storyline.

In the game, you're still woken up by Miri and you have to go meet up with Levi, but it's this mission that makes them decide "We're going to Tokyo goddammit."
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

I get it now, lost memories trying to recover i see. :D

Please don't tell me you're not updating this game anymore? Did you mean that i think i missunderstood when you said last demo. :)

A sequel? Do you have an idea how effed up the story would be?


A sequel is currently off the cards unless there becomes a demand for it. Which there probably won't. I would like to work on some original games after completing this, I've been doing a lot of fangame work and a break would be nice 'w'
:(

Awww okay... Either way you're graphics in making stuff is FANTASTIC!!!

I'm currently working on a FF game myself but i gotta use the started guys haha.
the parts i played of the game were interesting though i didnt see much because i was killed bye the first boss then i quit.
I fail at trying to make a game....

I made 1 random square object as the "Cutscene" with people moving and stuff, it just keeps repeating it in a loop it's so annoying lol...
i can make a game
though im failing on making one with a cbs.
im using rm2k3.
this is so off topic.
what vanisher posted is off topic.
I was talking to her about it earlyer on here, i'm new to this website so i'm still trying to get all the features in my head.
Constructive Critisizm:

Levi needs to act more like Squall, I know Squall is probly the most fast thinking and intelligent Final Fantasy charactor through out the series, more Clever than anything, Sorceress you have 100% got that part of Levi right! :D

However that is how Squall "IS" 100% as far as special thinking goes, his "Personality" on the other hand seems nothing like Levi's, Squall has a lazy and obnoction personality and often says "Whatever" when sombody is right.

A few changes to Levi's personality i think would be not so much good but more like squall if that's the way you wanted to go.

The bad side of making Levi's peronality like Squall would be that there would be no leader to stop in and go the right way, Levi often acts like a neutral person and a smart thinker which Squall is but Squall would never speak it up at the time.
i would not know about squall i only have final fantasy X and final fantasy XII so...... well i have nothing to say anymore.
I was wondering why there wasnt any FF10 Charactors in it actualy, FF10 was probly the second most popular to FF7, then it was FF8 i think.
really? i am not much of a final fantasy fan so i only know of the games i have played.

There is an intentional difference between Levi and Squall. He has some of Squall's traits yet some are his own.

As the plot develops and they get an 'enhanced' version of the 'Character Virus', Levi AND the rest of the party gradually become more like their characters. Levi's turning point character-wise occurs at the Fairgrounds, when he gets challenged to a duel with his arch-rival, Aio (and loses).
Oh i see, but dosen't Levi still act like a well spoken leader awhen you go into the fortune tellers house?

The dialogue is being revised, also. The fairgrounds was written a really long time ago, but that duel was only just implemented.

Plus, as Squall develops through the actual Final Fantasy VIII game, doesn't he BECOME a well-spoken leader? In fact, he makes a very inspiring speech to the entire Garden during Disc 2.

In order to make the character set up work, Levi needs to intervene when Kumo is being stupid. Levi is the 'secondary' leader, the one who goes 'No, this is a bad idea. How about we do this?'
Shadz acts as the informant, while Lulu behaves as 'comic relief'. Miri and Kyer are both the 'love interests' and the moral support, the both of them being members of LANDSLIDE.

Levi, unlike Squall, has been a 'SeeD' (Sapling) for about 7 months. He's older than Squall and has more battle experience. Despite Levi's life, actions and behavior being influenced by Squall, he has his own separate personality and behavior developed through this.
