Welcome to ALTER LEGEND.

A tragic accident turns into a source of power. After a massive slaughter of an entire city, at the hands of an elusive titan, the survivors realize they can channel the spirits of the dead. The spirits take shape as monsters, as magic, and as chaos. Join Alek in a struggle to to find out why the great beast Igara, a once peaceful beast, would suddenly rampage, killing thousands.
Explore a massive world in a free roam system that still very much pushes a thick and juicy plot. Choose to sell old gear, or synthesize them into new powerful weapons. Explore dungeons, forests, castles, churches, temples and the depths of your own damn backpack as this game caters to those who like the grind and collect, just as much as it does to those who like to avoid that kind of thing and just soak in a beautiful immersion plot. Challenge yourself with quicktime combos that make skill a bigger factor then level, but still gain experience to multiply the power of that same skill your momma gave you! Not everything is as it seems in Alter Legends. Friends are foes, where foes are friends and the world is constantly changing to continuously bring new game play to the the table. We may have bit off more than we can chew, making this game, but by god were going to finish it, and give it to you for free.
Welcome to Alter Legend, and may your stay be increasingly epic.

(disclaimer**)

Yes there are some minor graphical bugs here and there, but this game is about as polished as it's going to get (not including game breaking bugs.)

I made this game to practice and learn. It's served it's purpose but It's time for me to start clean with all that I have learned. I'm looking forward to bringing you completely polished and professional work in the future, however, when i started this game, I had no idea what I was doing, and the frame work I built it upon has become very very limiting to me. I hope you guys can enjoy it as it is, she is my first child :P Cheers guys.

The Long Long Road.

So I am back from vacation and the first thing I did was PLOW through a mountain of let's plays of my game. ( I put it up privately on another site for lets players to beta test for me).

Now before I go on I need to state this. Alter Legend is my very first full length project and I only made it to practice and learn rpg maker.

I made it in VX and with the release of ACE my engine has become obsolete. Not to mention when I started the project, I had NO IDEA WHAT I WAS DOING, so this game is built on a really shitty frame work that would be far too much work to fix, so there are a lot of non game breaking kwirks that I never plan on fixing.

why will I not fix these bugs? Because I have learned all I wanted to learn from Alter Legend, it has served it's purpose. I want so badly to start on a fresh project with nice neat, clean ground work, where I can apply all my new good habits from the start.


there is a general consensus that the game is too hard. It's painful to watch as most people struggle because of terrible decision making... whether it's from not taking the time to look for the chests i scattered EVERYWHERE, or if its from not bothering to read the dialogue and then getting lost. Or some people that spam the chain attacks and never use spells at all. I do not blame the players though, How can I? A game is fun, or it isn't I need to investigate how to overcome different players and their different skill sets.

SO, that being said, I will be nurfing monster HP and the damage from certain spells. I will be making it so certain monsters don't respawn, especially monsters in puzzle areas.

I will be increasing the money dropped from killed creatures, and will make edits to certain quests to make things more obvious.

Eventually I will add more content to Mekana city. I will add more side quests, and will drastically expand the relationship system which in the current build is basically unused.

After these changes the game will go into hiatus while I work on a Commercial project with Galv. Alter Legend will be revisited from time to time to not only add to the story and provide more hours of gameplay, but will also slowly polish the game over time.

I want to thank everyone for your interest in the past year and a half of development. I want to thank all my lets players for putting themselves through hell playing my terribly inbalanced game in it's current build lmfao... those videos were hard to watch! And I want to thank Galv and my girlfriend for putting up with me for all this time :D I'm not an easy guy to deal with ^^

Sit tight, the final build of Alter Legend will be up in the next few days :)

Iam sad that the game was very short ( about only 1 hour of game play ) and i cant wait for chapter 2 can u tell me when will it be released ? and btw i really liked the door puzzle which requires u to mash too many arrows and buttons to get it open and get the chests actually when i saw it and saw how u planed the areas and the battle system with that mean gauge i thought that it might be my best rpg i have ever played with eternal eden ofcourse , any way hope u answer my que about chapter 2 and thanks for this wonderful amazing game ! :-))

You apparently haven't played a lot of RPG's!

Anyway, this game was pretty cool, and I felt a huge wave of success when I managed to win against that input door or whatever! I also LOVED when you attack, you can start up a chain by pressing a button at the right time. I am looking forward to Chapter 2!

Wow man... Thats huge... I'm really glad you enjoyed it as much as you did... If you enjoy my game, you should check out legend of the dragoon. Thats the game that started my interest in RPGS and it pretty strongly influences this game. As for when chapter 2 is released, Im hoping 2-3 weeks from now. :)

Hahah the chain system has been hit or miss through the comments, but i personally think its a large part of the originality of my game, so it isnt going anyway, so im glad you enjoyed it. Some people like to sit back and relax during their rpgs. that shit dont fly in my game ;)

It really looks epic and its 4 cd game which i think makes it very intersting , thanks for another great game i will download and try it for sure ^^
I think this needs a good old fashioned bump.
Chapter 2 is very close to completion.
Oh thats good news! Your staying busy.
Yes sir. I promise very much that this is not one of those projects that goes on haitus forever. or anything like that. I'm seeing this beast of a project through to the end.
Yeah... Please...No MORE hiatus games... ;_;
Gonna play the new demo--might LT it too.
One thing: I'm happy to see the font file in the game's folder, however, your link to the font file on this main page is broken.
Might be a good idea to remove that.
yeah Im currently working on re vamping my profile, its fighting me hard though. any idea what the demensions need to be for a back ground file? i cant get one to fit properly.

Can't say I would be much help with that.
But onto the game, what is the answer to the Temple Elder's little riddle?
I just flat out suck at guessing it xD
lol, ill give you a hint. the word your looking for, is a thing in the room with you. you can literally see the answer. its not writting anywhere, but the object your trying to name is in the room with you.

Well even if I was stupid and didn't get that quickly, it did stop me from recording/playing xD
So adding some hints ingame might be useful...hints that aren't part of the mapping.
