SaGa4: Masters of the Demon World
(also known as Final Fantasy Legend 4 in the US)
(also known as 魔界の覇者 Sa・Ga4 to meganerds)


SaGa4 is an unofficial spiritual successor to the gameboy SaGa RPGs, aka Final Fantasy Legend. It features old-school combat mechanics and visuals faithful to the gaming heyday of 1989. If you're nostalgic for retro games, or just looking for a good, challenging RPG, this game is probably a good fit.

  • Choose a party of humans, mutants, robots, and monsters, each with a unique leveling scheme
  • Employ over 300 combat items and abilities, either learned, found as treasure, or crafted from elemental stones
  • Explore the 20 floors of Babel in addition to the many alternate worlds beyond
  • Fight in finely-tuned battles against difficult opponents -- every encounter could be dangerous, and you'll need every trick to survive
  • Enjoy the best of old school mechanics without the pain points: items have descriptions, encounter rate is sane, randomness is controlled, etc
  • Uncover the fate of Jonas and Janine, the missing warrior twins, and gather the relics of the lost city of Hero to open the path to the world beyond


The project is complete and approximately 10 hours long, (shorter for the knowledgeable and longer for completionists, obviously). Bug reports are welcome. The game is made in Java on the MGNE engine, supporting Linux/Windows/OSX, and source code is available upon request. Graphics are a mix between SaGa rips (for sprites and battle portraits) and custom (all custom tiles!) Music is straight from the source and plays in an embedded Gameboy APU emulator. A bit more is explained in the manual but everything you need to know is in game. Our database tools and monster charts and things like that are also available -- we love talking old school game mechanics so if you have a suggestion, feel free to comment. Enjoy the game!

Hey all, bet no one was expecting an update on /this/ game. Which is partially true -- we're announcing a continuation project of sorts, The Secret of Varonis, which features all-original assets, a touched-up story, lots of brand new maps, and a more stable engine. The end goal is to get it on Steam. It has its own gamepage at https://rpgmaker.net/games/12387/ and homepage at https://varonis-rpg.com/

Thanks for your time, hope you enjoy the new game once it's out!

I never encountered that bug and I beat the game, so it's probably not a prevalent as you might be concerned for.
Thank you for giving positive attention to a very underrated RPG series by making this game.
This is THE fan game we SaGa lover needed. I really appreciate all your hard work and efforts to bring us this.
I would really love to see a Romancing SaGa serie fan game, including the Minstrel Song enhancements.

I loved this game instantly, and so i made a little mod for whoever wanted to use it. Its just a title screen with the SaGa 4 logo.
But i will only upload it if the developer approve it.

EDIT: And the developer approves!!!!
Here is the little mod:

And here how to install it:
go to ''saga 4 masters of the demon world'' directorie, open the ''res'' subfolder, and then the ''ui'' subfolder. There, change the name of the image named ''bad_title'' to something else. Then download the image from the link and copy it into the ''ui''subfolder. DONE!!!
(for this to work correctely, you must extract the game data from the zip stored in RPGMaker.net. That also apply for the in-game save function to properly work)
