"I speak with passion, from the heart! That's what matters most."

Final Fantasy VIII- The Sorceress War is the unofficial Prequel to Final Fantasy VIII. I got the idea after playing said game because the story itself wasn't that great, but there was this interesting sidestory of a man called Laguna which sadly wasn't involved in the original game that much. So I just thought to myself, "Why not create such a game?" And here it is.

About the story:
Final Fanatasy VIII- The Sorceress War follows the story of Laguna and his friends Kiros and Ward, whom Squall, the main character of FFVIII dreams of from time to time. Starting off as simple soldiers of the Galbadian army, the three soon get dragged into a conflict between two nations, ultimately ending in a war. Laguna, Kiros and Ward have to make their way into the country of Esthar and fight to protect the ones they love.

About the game itself:
Final Fantasy VIII- The Sorceress War is directly connected to Final Fantasy VIII, so I tried to adapt as many game mechanics from the original game as possible (such as GFs, Drawing, etc). Since not all of that is 100% possible in the RPG Maker, I still created a kind of unique game.

So here are some of the features:
-around 10 hours of gameplay
-a cool and interesting story (with a few adaptions)
-tons of well-known characters, places and enemies
-the original soundtrack of FFVIII
-a large selection of spells, summons and limits
-three unique characters with powerful abilities
-Drawing and Junctioning for almost unlimited customization possibilities
-sidequests that only a true warrior journalist is able to solve
-TRIPLE TRIAD!
-a detailed walkthrough if you are stuck
-and much more...

So what is there else to say? Probably a lot more. I can just suggest to play it for yourselves. If you have just half as much fun as I had creating this, I would be happy.

For a complete list of game features (especially if you never played FFVIII before) please look into the walkthrough.

Feel free to leave comments or criticism, and always remember, this game is not trying to get on the level of FFVIII, but paying tribute to a great character with a great storyline.

Are you suppose to be able to give pupu an elixer because it's not letting me.

Yes, it does work. When you select the target for the item, press L/R to switch to the enemy. You can look up and change the controls by pressing F1, I think by default the L/R keys are assigned to Q and W on the keyboard.
If that's not working and I screwed up again, then maybe try a megalixir (save before, maybe you think it was not worth it afterwards). I have tested it with a megalixir and there is one lying at the great bridge.
You may want to check meltdown, game crashed when I casted meltdown claiming game couldn't find graphics for it.

Yes, I might have accidentally deleted the animation sheet when I tried to reduce the game's size. I'm unable to fix it atm but Meltdown should be far from essential (though the Red Giant is pretty annoying without it, maybe try Tonbery or Cactuar against him).
You could also try to go into the RTP Animation folder, copy any animation sheet and rename it to the name it says in the crash report, maybe by chance that works too.
Anyways, thank you for informing me (as always) and I will fix it as soon as I'm able to.
Here are a few more bugs that I encountered:

-Game crashed when Ultima weapon when he was going to cast something (started with a g)
- I saw a cutscene where Laguna writes about salt lake but when I gone back to report it, nothing happened (this happened when I first came to Salt Lake).
- I have two Eden GF's
- I was able to fight Ultima weapon without the countdown triggered.

Thanks as always. Most of these sound like the result of sloppy eventing so they shouldn't be too hard to fix, still unable to do so though.
I don't recall Ultima Weapon to have any sort of countdown but I think you mean Omega instead, I think I tested it without the timer and didn't reset it.
Do you recall the message of the crash with Ultimas attack?
Anyways, it seems like you're really eager to complete the game, have you finished it yet?
Opps, I meant Omega Weapon. Ultima Weapon was rather easy for me.

Yes I have beaten the game. It only took me one try. The more GF's I got, the easier the game has gotten but I am unable to do many of the maps because I don't have that much gold.

I could go in depth on what I thought and what could be improved but it depends on if you are willing to go back and make some changes to the game like some games I've encountered on here.

Even though the gameplay system is unique as it is and I don't want to make big changes about it, I'd love to hear your opinion about the game and see where it could still improve. How about you send me a PM?
this game have some sound issues where attack sounds stays active for a while after attacking. that should be fixed.

This. Tried downloading it and was led to a generic FileDropper page.
link's busted, i recommend Mediafire or MEGA if your download is more than 400 MB, also if it is, remove the RTP plz, it eats up a lotta space and ppl should already have the RTP to play it.
Can someone please upload the game? The link is offline and I can't find the game anywhere else. :(
same link is not working and I would really like to play this.
from other comments it looks like thsi game has loads of crash errors. u probably dont want to play this
