Everyone knows the story of Final Fantasy IV by now. Yet, I've always wondered what if things had gone a different way? What if, say, Rydia had never joined your party? Or Kain had stayed with you after the incident in Mist? These questions and more are what this game explores, and tries to give a definitive answer to.

This is not a scene-by-scene remake, but rather a re-imagining of what I think a "parallel dimension" Final Fantasy IV would have played like. For the graphics, I took a lot of inspiration from the PSP remake, though I did try to up the quality of the graphics at least a little bit (especially using Celianna's tilesets which are amazing). Most of the tracks from the original game have been replaced with remastered/remixed tracks from all over the internet, such as OCRemix, the DS version, Dissidia, and many Youtube artists.

I'd like to note here that I went for a blending of several prior versions of the game in terms of the actual 'feel' of the game. Such as the title screen, I went for the classic U.S. release on SNES and just upped the graphics as much as I could. Other areas will have more of a SNES feel while others will reference the PSP and even DS versions at times. The maps themselves are similar to, but not exact, replicas of the original maps from the SNES version. Dialogue is going to be a mix of the Gameboy Advance translation with original story by me.

Lastly, a huge shutout and thank you to the dev of Legend of Balance. Your game was an inspiration and tremendous guide for me, and it's awesome.

IMPORTANT - If you come up with an error stating that you are missing the xinput1_3.dll then you will need the following (safe download from Microsoft's site) DirectX Jun2010

**Do NOT enter the Moon's caves post-game or else you will glitch your game!**

Reverted the build to a previous one (in which there were no significant issues save for the lag on the Overworld). My apologies for the inconvenience, but it seems that trying to fix the lag present only caused more issues.

- You may go to fullscreen by pressing ALT + Enter
- Battle Rows similar to the original game
- Classic side-view Final Fantasy-type battle system (Modified Journey Battle System)

- Battle Difficulty options
- Enemy HP Bars (they're visible when an attack is made)
- D-Pad functionality on Gamepads
- New "Lunar Expanse" bonus area (Boss rush dungeon)
- New "hidden" Arena

Lag Killer & New Download

Hi peoples!

Got a pretty big update, and it's that I think I somewhat killed the L-A-G present on the Overworld (especially in late game). I've also fixed up a few passabilities in some areas, and I believe I fixed the whole post-game bug-whenever-entering-moon-caves-thingie. I've posted a new download for the game with these new updates (Google Drive) so I hope you'll take advantage. Oh, and you'll want to start a new save for the game after downloading this updated version. Old saves will work, but they'll be all wonky when going back and forth between Overworld and towns/dungeons.

Here's hoping the game performs better, and thank you all for your support! =)

Thank you! I hope you enjoy the game when it releases! =)
Oh...your name is Sphere. The first time reading the overview, I thought that you made this game in a program called Sphere. I was about to lose it. Good luck on this game, we need more FFIV love here!

Thank you! =) I'm currently past the Tower of Zot, so I'm definitely making some great progress. Should only be a few more months or so before this is ready to release.
Usually this type of story line is not my thing, but this one has gotten me interested.

Dude, EXCELLENT job, this is great.

However, I do think I ran into a game breaking bug. I will post it in the hide tags so people aren't spoiled.

After the Wind Crystal is taken from Fabul, the plot cannot progress. Upon exiting the crystal room and trying to exit Fabul, there is a glitch where Yang and Kain are stuck outside the castle gates as if they were still awaiting the attack on Barron. Trying to run into them or talk to them do absolutely nothing. They are glitched and will not move and you cannot progress the plot.

I attempted to talk to the king in case that was a switch to progress the plot, but he only yields a sleep bubble.


Other than that, great job. Looking forward to a fix so I can continue playing.
Thank you! And check the downloads I just put up a patch. All you gotta do is copy the Data files to your build and you should be golden. Let me know please.
That fixed it, thank you! Now I can get back to playing it.

Also, one more thing I just now noticed:

After exiting Fabul, the dramatic music from Rosa's fight still plays in random battles. It's kinda' funny because every random battle feels like a sad moment, as though I were mercilessly taking the lives of these monsters.

Damn I can't believe these bugs got through. I just fixed that too, and I'll be posting up a new build with the fixes included to this point. Hopefully things are smoother after Fabul. I want to say a real thank you for helping me out with these glitches Gredge. =)

You need to download the latest patch in the Downloads section. It's a very minor bug, I had forgotten to uncheck a parallax from a map.
Damcyan took a really nasty turn; I'm shocked! Was there no divergent way for us to take? We had to do that?
