Everlong is a FREE amateur fantasy game designed to capture the charm and cliche of the classic SNES JRPG. You are a Blackguard, a knight sworn to serve the Cirigoth Empire and trained in the dark arts, yet hunted by your imperial masters after turning renegade. Only through enlisting the aid of friends and allies can you escape pursuit and defeat the oppressive Cirigoth regime. Journey across the world's continents to forge a confederacy and fight for freedom in global war. Yet a more insidious plot looms in the shadows. A fallen god seeks to exploit civilization's folly and reclaim the dreams and nightmares of humanity.

The linear story of Everlong is accompanied by numerous side-quests. It also focuses heavily on puzzles, dialog, and battle strategy.

Patch v3.31C

UPDATE: Patch version B may have broken the Skill Shard system for some players. The archive has been uploaded with a fix. Several other bugs were also eliminated. I'm tentatively declaring the skill swap error fixed as well, but more testing is required before I'm confident enough to update the full package.

Big thanks to players matski, starlitstorm, and missileboater for their help.

Download the patch here.

The most significant change is the final tier of several healing skills now restore a percentage of max HP, bypassing the 9999 limit. Previously, it was difficult to heal heroes that were reborn multiple times and had high HP totals in the tens of thousands. Items and skills are capped at four digits, unlike damage which is currently capped at five digits. This is a limitation of the break damage limit hack that I've not seen addressed, nor anticipate ever will be.

The implementation of percentage based healing is not without restrictions. A temporary new condition, "Reprieve", is inflicted by the healing spell upon the target. Just prior to the next turn, HP is restored, then the condition abates before the following turn. There are some custom effects that don't count as turns, such as Parasite, which could damage or kill a hero before healing occurs.

The engine also prevents skills from both inflicting and removing conditions. Spells that previously cured negative conditions no longer do so on their final tier if they now inflict Reprieve. For example, Revitalize previously extinguished all conditions in addition to healing, but no longer does so. Chakra still removes Blind, Bleed, and Poison at lower tiers, but the strongest version sacrificed this effect for the additional healing. The rationale is that late in the game the player will likely use equipment to provide condition immunity, and would prefer the significant healing boost. This also makes Purify, Esuna, and condition removing items like Remedy and Panacea more relevant again.

The Overpower and Meltdown algorithms were adjusted to similarly account for high HP totals. Also worthy of note, new riddle statues were added to the first puzzle in the Black Dragon Trial to make it easier and more engaging than simple trial and error.

A full list of changes in the update follows.

I remember playing this awhile back. For anyone who hasn't played everlong, I personally consider it a must play. Games of this quality are pretty scarce!

I love this game and have been fascinated by it since I came across it around late 2007 when it was version 3.00. It was definitely a well put together project and I had fun until getting stomped by Ull. Since then I've beaten the game, mainly due to the introduction of the Story Mode, and it has become part of my staple games list, which means it's right up there with games like Hero's Realm. Good luck within the community, DJC.
I have played this in the past and remember enjoying it quite a bit; I'm replaying it now and hope to review it after completion (I'm a bit busy so it might take a while lol) but I have high hopes for it. Just got past water cavern as of now.
I beat this game this afternoon. So short.
I could not play this game... said that it did not support a function

I'm guessing you received the "Interface Not Supported" error when the game tried to load the logo movie file. You can either choose to skip the prelude to avoid this, or install the codec necessary to play the file. The easiest way to do the latter is to simply play the file in Windows Media Player, and upon failure it will attempt to download on its own. It is a standard Microsoft codec and any Windows based system should already have it installed. The file is located in the Everlong/Movie directory.

you're kidding right? this is probably one of the longest rpg maker games out there.
I've got a question - what's about the hunting areas. Can't beat the fiends, pressing "shift" doesn't work - do I have the wrong weapons ?
Please excuse my terrible English....

Sorry, now it works - maybe I haven't been strong enough.

Great game .....
Wow great that you found your way here DJC. I've played this game and I've liked it but went halfway then kinda quit it 'cause of some frustrations and such (it's just me though). Hoping to get back into this game some time soon.

DJC, I just noted that that the Download button redirects to a 404 - Page Not Found:

http://nealien.com/Everlong/downloads.php

Also, in the webpage for your game it still shows the SOPA Blackout:

http://nealien.com/Everlong/

Probably want to fix those two issues ...
Just downloaded this. Will try it in a bit.

Yeah, I blacked out to observe the SOPA protest on January 18th. I didn't restore the website until midday PST on the 19th because I was slept in late. It should all be back online now, and the actual download was always accessible. I appreciate the heads-up, though! Sometimes things go down and I don't notice immediately.
I heard this game is indee ever long!
Too bad the graphics are so mediocre... :-(
I loved playing this game, lol it really lives up to its name. :)

Agreed, Lol aside from a few grammatical errors here and there(which are in basically every game so no big deal..) this game truly is a masterpiece for rm2k3 alongside Hero's Realm, the Alter Aila series, Forever's End, and many others. ^o^

As difficult as it is sometimes, I enjoyed all of the time that I spent playing through it, seriously DLC you created something truly great. :)
