The game Mass Effect Chronicles is a fan-game based on Mass Effect 1 and Mass Effect 2 (© Bioware / EA Games ).

The Normandy has been destroyed and Commander Shepard, the hero of the battle for the Citadel is assumed to be 'killed in action'. The devastating news is soon forgotten as you are swept up in the events that follow. Engage in battle against yet unknown forces or simply try to do your best to stay alive through it all, it's up to you. Recruit a team to stand by your side as you explore the galaxy and unravel the mysteries that lie ahead.

Mass Effect Chronicles is a free fan-made RPG that is completely compatible with the canon of the Mass Effect universe, and features the events that took place between Mass Effect 1 and 2 from the eyes of a turian, a salarian and an asari.




In the alpha, you follow Vazill Korturus, a turian Hierarchy soldier who arrives at the Citadel to take care of some personal business and ends up with more questions and enemies than he wished for. It includes the entire Intro Project so far, and game mechanics such as, combat, space exploration, ground exploration, cutscenes, a morality system, an inventory, achievements and more!

The alpha comes with it's own artbook and a manual. Have fun with the alpha, but remember to check our site for more updates, since some of the patches will continue the story as we develop the rest of the Projects.

Keep in mind that this project is a WIP and some things are just placeholders (e.g. the sprites and facesets don't always match.)

Wow, i really like your screen shot did you make it yourself?
Everything in those screenshots were made specifically for this game (with the exception of the space panorama). I made a few sprites and tiles here and there, but the artwork for this game can be credited to ;

We've put alot of time into making this game unique from anything else in the RMXP realm, and hopefully it will prove to be a worthy stand-alone game.
You know what I think; I think you should explain why you're making this here fangame, and why you think it might be worth other people's time, particularly due to the existence of the actual official games.

Because it's an entirely different story from the actual games. Yes, it's based on them, but that doesn't mean it's the same experience simply dumbed down to 2D. As for why I'm making this... I thought it would be great to see Mass Effect in a heavy-RPG environment.

And Ghost.... please tell me you're being sarcastic. :| LMFAO

Can Aria be a playable character, and can her daughter Liselle from the novel make out with Liara?

... I thought Mass Effect *was* an RPG. It has an action-3D-shooter system, but still.

Hence the word "heavy".

Anyhow, I made it because I loved Mass Effect and the universe that Bioware made is absolutely amazing. Seeing that universe from a different perspective is (what I think) an interesting way to spend my free-time.

Unlike most Jrpg fangames with a single limited world. Norton and his team have taken universe with nearly endless possibilities to build and form his own story.

Really cool stuff, Norton. :)

This is what rpg maker is all about, someone who enjoys a game and wants to expand his own thoughts and ideas into something that he has control over.
It's awesome to see art and graphics being commissioned for it too, shows a level of commitment.
How much of this have you done yourself? (graphic-wise)

Anyways, goodluck with this!
Looks fan-freaking-tastic. I totally support fan games.
I only just started, but the quest you receive in the first market which gives you 2750 credits to buy a tool, if you choose the shop option with the Human merchant it will skip the quest and you can get it again to receive more faction and credits, infinetely
Yes I first saw this on RMRK and thought it looked great! Unfortunatly that topic went dead so I assumed the game did as well. Glad to see your still working on it! Can't wait to see the end result, I love Mass Effect, I already predict that 3 is GOTY 2011
Is this thing still under development?

So, what happened to this game? Clarify.
This looks interesting.can't wait to see more.
Unfortunately, I'm pretty sure Norton has left this project for greener pastures. Which is a shame. I would love to see a nice side-story after the debacle of the ME3 ending.
aww man this game looks pretty cool is it dead? I see in the comments that some people think it's dead I love fan games and I hate it when they don't get completed. :(
