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.

I updated the game information so it's no longer a wall of text. :D
I'm a fan of FF7 and FF8..
I read the summary and it seems like its gonna be an awesome game..

Though I haven't played the demo yet, because I'm in the middle of another game right now and I don't like to start another one without finishing the first..

But I will definitely keep tabs on this..XD
This game sounds interesting. I'm interested to see where this goes.
Wait, so the main characters are cosplayers? WIN!
I don't like this game at all. You just remade FF7 intro didn't you.

That isn't the actual intro, by the way. This game features numerous scenes from the games adopted into the storyline of this one for nostalgia's sake. The original never had anything like this at all, especially since I was less familiar with FF7 back then.

The simularities with the intro and FF7's intro is not only because of nostalgia; the demo of Final Fantasy VIII was of their exam/ mercenary mission (I used the music intentionally here) and if I'm not mistaken the demo of Final Fantasy VII was the Reactor mission, too.

Well I like the demo :p

It has a cool feel playing a remake of that part of FF7 fitted into CC story setting :p

It reminds me abit of a tv series I once saw where someone was transported into thier fave story and
thus the events of the story changed.

I also liked the boss, it felt similar to the battle scene of the game :p

I'm looking foward to the finished game :p
Hey kyrsty would it be okay if I add a intertextual reference to cosplay crisis in my game?
It'll be just a new's flash of other events happening in the world at the moment kinda thing.
Anyway hope your progressing well :)

Nah, originally I did have FFX in the mix, and then I remembered that I actually didn't really like it. FFX-2 was better battle-wise but the story was confusing as hell and totally unnecessary. So I decided that it's just the PSX FF's- 7,8,9. I enjoyed all of them thoroughly.
Oh ok

And FF X-2 story is easy to figure out..just dont skip sceans

Lol then do a Cid Cosplayer. lol Cid is one funny mother phucker

Don't worry Cid's not getting left out, he has a cameo. Ok several of them.
i like how you rewrote the names of the RE characters. its kinda funny. i look forward to playing this
i noticed that when i start a new game, after the intro, it shows a sprite above the moon, but you can barely see it.
