Four imperfect heroes.

One terrible threat from the past.

This time, it's personal.



In the land of Radia, four 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 find the right people to help Radia and bind them into serving the land — are what will bring them together from the distant regions to fight this threat.


Each of these heroes will have a personal stake.




This is the second chain game from RPG Maker Web!

This time around, we're being more non-linear in both gameplay and story: the first four chapters take place simultaneously as we follow our four heroes before they meet up at the capital. Flashbacks will play a role in the storyline. Later on, we're hoping to have some chapters that can be completed in different orders. The regions from the first chapters will be revisited and expanded later in the game by other developers.

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.

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.
