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.

Feature List:
  • 80+ hours of gameplay
  • Nearly 1500 maps to explore; each full of puzzles, monsters, and treasures

    or instead earn a reward for completion

Beta Patch E

New update available that includes autosave functionality, manual counter attack adjustments, and various other fixes and improvements! NOTE: Unless starting a new game, players must enable autosave in options. Beware, this will ERASE saves in slots 14 and 15.

Download it here.

Remember to backup any saves before installation. Due to a lack of time for thorough testing, I'm releasing this as a beta patch until sufficiently certain of new functionality. I expect I broke something considering almost every single map was modified, hence the large size for an update. When players have had a chance to report bugs, I'm planning to finally release a new full installation package.

Going through every map reminded me of how poorly designed and coded some portions of the game are. To be fair, some of these are vestiges from the project's earliest days in year 2000 in RPG Maker 2K. Reviewing all the plot scenes, I'm also disappointed how many story and character elements were cut, but it's impossible to rewrite so much of the script at this point.

Everlong v3.30e (2017.04.06):

*Autosave function implemented; toggle in options; notification message optional; automatic saving to slots 14 and 15 alternatively after battles, cut scenes, map changes, on opening chests, after shopping or trading with collectors
*Monster counter attacks now percentage based, no longer automatic; probability scales with difficulty level; manual adjustment in monster custom scale menu; several special bosses ignore
*Switched to disharmony audio library in attempt to fix MIDI playback errors and possible crash bug
*Fixed incorrect Stellio name reference during battle
*Weapons that inflicted Dispel changed due to dual wield engine bug that caused them to instead inflict all positive enchantments; Tolerance, Fracture Fist, and Monolith now inflict Fragile
*Fixed error where a particular randomly spawned hunting grounds item caused another active item to disappear under certain conditions
*Shell, Devotion skills no longer count as Boons; prevents Khaer Magnus AI exploit
*Skull Knight collector removes correct number of Crimson Beherit for special trades
*Vetu's skills shards no longer reset when character joins party; starts with equipped skills
*Fixed a bug at Vanguard before Seraphia War where cutscenes in the fortress and military camp outside the forest repeated if the player returned to the guest room
*Addressed potential crash issue with witch chase puzzles in Tower of Propugnaculum
*Counter attack animation now ON by default when starting a new game
*Fixed bug preventing encounter rate icon from displaying in menu upon initial redraw
*Muspell counter dialog displays regardless of counter animation toggle
*Keen's skills Energy Collapse and Prismatic Eye now Dispel target enchantments; Intensity inflicts Blind and Sleep instead of Aneurysm
*New item received sound effect by player request
*New sound effect for treasure chests that contain money, and bank transactions
*Corrected encounter rate adjustment for Vanguard Forest during return to Vanguard events
*Corrected Finder Display for Vanguard Forest northern section
*Seraphia War sequence skip now takes player directly to bunker before boss fight
*Music now plays correctly when teleporting from the Aetherius to Silva Vicus with Impatient Mode active
*Music now resumes correctly when returning to world map from Purgatory in Impatient Mode
*Corrected exploitable chest in Aditus Grotto that also incorrectly affected encounter rate
*Dreaming Forest walkway bug fixed; players became stuck if standing on certain tiles when map reloaded
*Airship dock message now has transparent background to distinguish text
*Map effects and displays execute more efficiently, reducing possible lag
*Julia no longer displays erratic animations on Thank You for Playing ending screen

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. :)
