The Castle of Baramuirge has appeared in the world once more...
The power of the ancient gods are sealed within...
Seek out this power before the demons can claim it...


A long time ago, back in 2002, I made a game that was never completed or released. Fast forward twelve years later, to the RMN event Revive the Dead. Chase For Divinity had been picked up, worked on, and dropped over and over again, but the time has come for it to finally be completed.

Join Vittoria, a mercenary who joins a cast of oddball characters on this zany-but-deadly adventure as they try to find the secrets of the ancient gods and the elusive castle where the demonic clash will begin.

The game offers:
  • A long, meaty, traditional-esce RPG experience

  • Eight different characters to meet and use in battle

  • Examine just about any object to get the characters commentary on it

  • A look at the earliest game I have ever released, with a lot of the rough spots still on display!

  • A lot of my really old art, only slightly polished from its original condition


Click here to see a big blog post about reviving the game and looking at it in hindsight :D

Notes: If you haven't played any RPG Maker 2000 or 2003 games before this, you'll need to install the fonts or the game will look wonky. If you have this problem, go to the Chase for Divinity folder, and inside find a folder called rm2k_fonts. Install the fonts onto your computer and it should fix the font issue.

Secondly, I find that the game (on my computer, at least) has a tendency to lag in the default full-screen mode, however windowed mode seems to work a lot better. To go to windowed mode, press ALT ENTER at any time.

Thanks everyone! ^_^

Chase for Epilogue

Hello everyone! I've been pretty quiet on the subject of this game. My last blog was over a freaking year ago, when I talked about overhauling the ending of this game.

author=unity from 2014
I'm not sure when I'll have this ready, but I'll try to get it done in the next week or two. Thanks everyone! :D


Hah. Two weeks my butt XD

I had big plans for this. A playable epilogue with three different post-game mini-quests to show the effect your last choice had on the world.

That turned out to be a little more ambitious than I thought. ^_^;; I expanded the ending, adding in the after-the-final-boss party that was in my rough notes, where you could talk to all the characters before proceeding to the ending. And after that, I just... stopped.

Well, to be fair, there's a little more than that. I brainstormed what the playable epilogues could be like, and even got to work on one set in the far future, doing some mapping and writing for it, but... I just couldn't get inspired. I wanted so badly to be working on new stuff that it was very hard for me to write for this setting that was so old to me now.

Then the months went by and I had gone on to other projects. And the rest is history. The extra content for this game was left in the dust.

So, now, to make this game feel just a little more complete, I've updated the download with the extra party at the ending that I wanted to be there from the start. However, the playable epilogues still aren't a thing.

If you want to check out the party and speak to these characters again, but have already beaten the game, worry not. Just download the new file. There's a save file there already, in slot 15. Load it up, and when it asks for a password, input the code 10375 and it will take you to the moment just after the last boss is defeated.

As for the playable epilogues, I don't know when they'll be made. Perhaps one day the inspiration will strike. But for now, they'll be on the backburner once more. Sorry about that ^^;

Now I know! And knowing is half the battle! G.I. JOOOOOE!

Thanks very much for that! :D Even if I don't meet the October 30th deadline (which I will do my best to meet), I'll still get this finished. I've put too much into this to stop now.

Thank you very much! :DDDD

It's an old game, so I hope it'll still be fun! ^_^
oh dear

oh my

but on a serious note, the game's pretty damn fun: Difficulty is well balanced, random encounters are well spaced, the characters are pretty damn funny, and general tone is pretty light-hearted but slightly serious, which is quite refreshing honestly.

Oh and 3 more issues:

1)there's a typo somewhere near the beginning, i forgot to screenshot it but it's somwhere between the part where you're return from the bandit camp and when you leave the first on the duke's(?) mission quest thing. I think...

2)Abomination should be much stronger to indicate he's unbeatable because I msnsged to survive about 15ish turn s against him.

3)the first item shop not only sells a free max recovery item, but also mysteriously changes inventory the second time you talk to him.

>.<;; I knew there were errors, but that's a lot! Thank you very much, I'll get to fixing those right away!

If you're curious about the origins of one of those errors, the main character got changed to a guy early on because a guy friend in high school told me "no one would want to play an RPG as a girl." Of course I don't believe that anymore and I wanted to put her back to her original intended gender now that I was reviving the project.

Thanks again and I'm glad you're enjoying the game. ^^

no problem,glad to help. honestly though the 2nd issue is kinda my fault,since with tougher bosses I always tend to make 2 guys defend/backup, 1 attack, and the other 1 heal the rest of the party.a weird strat, but it works pretty well.

btw, the 2 pictures in my last post are now dumber :p unless you caught my ninja picture edit

That's an interesting strategy! Still, like you said, the boss should wipe you out regardless so the player knows its supposed to be a hopeless battle, so I'll fix it :D

XDXD Fantastic :D
Can you interact with the people on the ship again once it departs from the pointless island the first time? If you can, how do you do it? I ask because *obligatory spoiler warning*
ranes was on the ship, and seemed like a party member, but she didn't actually join us.

I'll put the answer here:

You can't interact with the ship again, but you'll get a place to interact with the party soon. Rane is training with the pirates until she's strong enough to join you officially, and the game will let you know when she's available. ^_^

EDIT: In what I think must be an error, there are Life Shards being sold for 0 Gold in the first shop.

EDIT2: Oh my gosh, this battle music is from Silver Surfer isn't it. I can't remember what stage but I played it a billion times. That game was SO FUCKING HARD!!!!
I have missed something in the desert.
Got the Talon and 6 feathers. Thought I needed only four.
Went back to Wilkinson's and nothing happened.
Was I supposed to go somewhere else?

You need a Meteorite and a Warp Crystal. The Meteorite is in the desert town of Giyonna. You trade those feathers and the talon to Gustave in that town for the Meteorite.

Yeah, that's a definite bug. I thought I fixed it in the latest version, but I'll double-check.

Yeah, but the music from that game is SO GOOD. I used several tracks from it :DDD
Maybe it's just me but I hear a static sound all the time and is very unnerving... (in-game of course)

Hmm... it may be the Disharmony Audio Patch I'm using. I've actually had the same thing happen to me while playing other games that use it. I'm not sure how to fix that, but I'll look into it.

Is anyone else having this problem?
