Eight imperfect heroes.

One terrible threat from the past.

This time, it's personal.



In the land of Radia, eight heroes — each from a different province — join together to repel a horrific enemy: the Gyth. These demonic entities are ruthless and mysterious; so dangerous, in fact, that they were sealed away to a void between dimensions nearly two decades ago.

There is something different about this band of heroes: they are each imperfect in their own way. They are burnouts, thieves, unknowns — people would not typically hold the fate of the world in their hands. They must be brought together by the King as a last-ditch attempt to defeat the Gyth. Metaphorically speaking, the King's radiant chains — his uncanny ability to search all over his kingdom to find the next legends — are what will bring these flawed souls together to fight this threat.


Each of these would-be heroes will have a personal stake.






The first eight chapters will be made by different developers chain game-style, and we'll go from there. Deckiller will most likely wrap it all up once all of the chapters have been created. The regions from the first chapters will be revisited and expanded later in the game by other developers; each chapter will thus contain plenty of nooks and crannies to revisit later!

We're using Zelda as a major inspiration this time around: there will be lots of dungeons with puzzles, as well as special items that unlock new/secret areas and plenty of optional content! See that giant boulder blocking a path to a new area in the forest? Clear the first dungeon to gain access to it! Can't find a rope to climb that cliff? Perhaps you'll have to revisit that area later in the game...

We're using Yanfly scripts to help spice up battles. Indeed, we're going for a quality game here, one that emphasizes exploration, continuity, and fun! It's a little more serious than the last chain game, and we're being more strict about things, but hopefully the results will speak for themselves.

If you are a reasonably experienced developer who wants to take part in a serious (but fun) chain game, then look no further! Like we said, we're being strict on continuity and there's a battle system in place, but you'll have a ton (ton!) of room to be creative with your areas, story progressions, sidequests, etc. We want people to create payoffs for what previous chapters set up in terms of story/level design/items, and we want you to set things up for future chapters as well!

Unchain the past for it is the future.

that's my attempt at being clever or whatever

So yeah, this is a chain game made with VX Ace RTP and a ton of scripts (Yanfly etc etc.). It's gonna be driven by characters, puzzles, lore, and exploration. The first chapter was available for download but I took it down to polish it (and the other two chapters that were already made). But I'm also working on Legion Saga DX and a -=SUPER TOP SECRET COMMERCIAL GAME=- so I can't really guarantee that I'll be leading this project after the first 3 chapters are up.

I'm mostly putting out feelers to see if anyone who was interested in this chain game in the past would still be interested now. We're aiming for pretty decent quality levels here but I don't expect Undertale.

It's actually an RMW chain game :) We completed the first one over there, so I have high hopes!

Edit: do we have the updated town? I could add a screen or two.

Thanks, Indra :3 Don't be insecure - your mapping kicks ass :)
Woot! Chapter 1 finished! Now it's time for me to make chapter 2.
Just finished the first chapter as well, very impressive in both game play and story line.

Debating if I should take one of the next three chapters as well (I have a decent Idea for it...)

Also, I looked at the file of Raida town... dang, after Thatbennyguy touched up what I did I thought it looked good, now it's BEAUTIFUL!

Happy you like it :D

I did some work on the town while working on the first chapter, including the start of that castle area that we can finish later :)
Can I take chapter 3? Whichever is vacant. <:3c

Updated the chapter outline.
I came across a bug. When you give the injured fairy the royal jelly her free heal doesn't do anything.

Thanks for the message! We'll add it to the buglist and make sure it gets fixed with the release of Chapter 2.
Yaaaaaaay!
Soon I shall contribute to this soon as well! I remember playing each chapter the second they came out in the previous chain game and I'm undoubtedly going to be doing the same with this!. :3
Ah, good times.
