Ascending Dreams is an action adventure inspired by the original Legend of Zelda.

You play a young adult who is forced from home to make it on their own.
Explore a large world, and 3 puzzling dungeons, complete with boss fights! Collect booty and trade for equipment upgrades.


"Ascending Dreams is my 3rd major project. My first project was a 3 dungeon demo inspired by Metroid called Demon Dreams. More recent is a completed game, a side scroller based on Zelda 1's underground areas called Lasting Dreams."

It took me 9 months to make this baby! I've decided to put a bow on this project and move on. It's a little unpolished in some areas, but still a full and playable game. I learned a lot during the course of this project, it was a lot of fun, but a lot of obsessive work too. I know I'm capable of making something better now, and I've already started to lay the foundation.

I have to thank all the community's script writers who made their work available, without them this game couldn't exist. Thanks to rpgmaker.net for hosting the game, and the wonderfully supportive community of game makers. Thanks to my group of testers for their feedback and support, it really helped to have fresh eyes find bugs and such (playing your own game over and over and over and over and over and over and over GETS OLD!)

Anyway, I've love to hear for more of you guys as you play. Let me know what you like, and what you don't like, so I can take it into consideration for my future projects.

As always, keep it classy!

This looks really interesting. I'm looking forward to playing it. It's neat how you've altered the RTP. Or at least I think you altered the RTP. I like the look of the mechanics being implemented. Subscribed!
Thanks! Yeah a lot of the tilesets are pretty much rtp edits to fit a simplified Earthbound-ish style.

OH MY, hold on Zelda, I'm on the way.....hope I don't die to often before
I can save you...... :)



EDIT: why do I get a second screen says: RGSS CONSOLE when I open the game ???
If you X, close the window...the game also closes.

OK Infinite, back to work :)
The enter key does not start the game no matter what command I try :(
Please fix my game :)

I have run the console because one of the key scripts I used would force the console to open up mid game, breaking the flow of the game. I could never figure out how to get it to stop, and it's creator isn't active anymore. So kindly ignore the console, or use F5 or Alt + Enter to go full screen.

New, Continue and EXIT do nothing but blink :(

Hmmm, use shift as "okay" button? or hit f1 for customize. It's best to use a gamepad. It's designed with the xbox 360 controller in mind.

Hey Linkis,

you need to know that the game breaks when playing with keyboard. You cannot reach the key in the first dungeon, because using the boomerang will break the game for sure. I had hoped this bug has been solved but no.

I stumbled upon this game page more or less randomly, and noticed that it is still marked as a game in production, even though your last blog suggests that it has been finished for a while now. I'd like to suggest you change the development status to "Completed," as that will prevent misunderstandings and is likely to make more people want to play this game.

Anyway, I put this on my list of games to try in the future.
Okay, I want to give this game a try, but it immediately crashes whenever I try to boot it up. I don't even get to the title screen.
Nvm, another thing was causing the issue.
Loving this game, so addictive! But I ran into an error when I try to enter a particular part of the map. Please help.

There is a error connected to the dragon at the top of dungeon # 3.
