“Imagine if every night, you dream of being a hero in a long-forgotten Age of Myth. Are you actually a normal person who wishes for more, or a hero who dreams of the quiet life?”

Story: Framed as a recurring dream experienced by a man living in modern day, Dreams of a Hero follows the adventure of a veteran soldier living in the time of the Greek Myths. Spurred on by the impulsive Princess Myrina, the player learns of a mysterious time-bending artifact that may provide a psychic link between the Modern World and the Age of Myth.

-Dreams of a Hero allows for player choice that determines the outcome and progression of the story. Character choices and gameplay severely affect each other, and alter your dialogue, abilities, story outcome, and which levels in the game you will end up playing.
-Mix of classical and original music.
-Original animated sprites and battlers.
-Interactive combat system based on timed button presses.

Original version now on Newgrounds

Fun fact: this game was originally intended to be an episodic rythym-RPG coded in Flash, in which attacks were preformed by hitting buttons in sync with the music.

In case people are curious, the original (read: prototype) versions of Day 1 and Day 2 have been added to Newgrounds.

Day 1: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/659248
Day 2: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/659576

Congratz! Just a question, how long is this game roughly?
Based on my friends' experiences, the game is about 5-7 hours.
Won't start game ERROR it says
Script MGC_map tile_lie_108
Won't load libary
MGC_Map Ace_1_6
I installed a fresh copy of VX Ace Didn't help

Huh. I wasn't able to replicate that error when installing on a new computer (without RPGMaker installed). I'll look into it more tonight. Has anyone else had this issue?
OK, it seems that the MGC error is caused when the file MGC_Map_Ace_1_6.dll isn't in the main game directory. If for some reason it got deleted or moved, the file can be found here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_6l75ShKBDmUENzV1I4djBQWDQ/view?usp=sharing

However, the file should be in the game folder by default among unpacking the downloadable executable.
NOPE that didn't do it still wont run
what is
Script MGC_map tile_lie_108
Nice game, I finished it a few days ago.
You really put a lot of choices in there, that should really help with replayability. I had quite a bit of fun reloading and seeing how each different choice affected the story.
The only thing I don't like of are those QTE-like abilities that require you to press a key at the right moment. Especially if it's a key that I normally don't use.
Couldn't you use the original version of Dvorak's from the new world for the boss theme though? Now THAT would have been epic. =D
Looks like a really cool game! Gonna download this when I can get a chance to!
