Before Crisis tells the story of the Investigation Sector of The General Affairs Department, also simply known as Turks, a organization working for the Shinra Electric Power Company, a famous name in the world of Final Fantasy 7.

Before Crisis starts seven years before the events of FF7, and you get to see the daily life of the turks, making missions for the company, fighting against the first group of mercenaries known as AVALANCHE, who are trying to protect the planet from ShinRA, who is little by little destroying it, taking the mako energy from the earth (That in this case, is the planet Gaia).

You basically play as the villain, seeing their perspectives of what they do, even though it may look wrong for everyone else.

Famous characters of the FF7 universe are present, as Reno, Rude, and Tseng. But you play as Shotgun, a rookie starting your first day working for the turks, and you see her journey in those seven years, meeting all the new turks, looking for a reason to keep fighting, and witnessing events that will lead to the beginning of FF7.

*This is a remake of the game Before Crisis released only in Japan.

What?
Hello, richterw.
Your game covers all the parts of the original Before Crisis?
Yeah, it covers the whole main story, beginning to end.
24 Chapters and the epilogues.
There's 3 special episodes, i think, but these are side-stories, not relevant to the main story, so those were not included here.
Seems like i forgot to upload the new package with the fixes, i apologize for whoever downloaded the misleading old package.
kinda confused by the combat. Are there no healing items?
Thanks a lot for this! I never got the chance to actually play Before Crisis. Now, I can finally finish the FF7 saga.
EDIT:

Well I was excited at first when I first saw this, but I did a comparison between Episode 1-1, and this version of Episode 1-1, I admit I know there isn't much that can be done considering nobody found a way to extract the actual sprites yet, but you did your best with what you could do. There also some awkward pacing right at the beginning as if I recall the story advanced by itself without the player's input to move to point A to point B at certain points (I could be wrong though, that is just what it looked like on the original episode 1-1).

Also you seem to have left some programs in the game folder.

Yeah, i understand your point.
Every episode was made to be the most faithful in pacing and story to the original game. The game may seems linear, but the original is like that, almost like a visual novel in some parts.
It's not perfect, but it is a bigger game than i thought it would be when i started, so i'm proud of having finished it.

The combat system is very simplified, and you can buy healing itens between some missions.

I truly appreciate this as a way of experiencing something of the Before Crisis story. Otherwise, not really much of a game.

Only for FFVII fans for sure.
Hey so I'm having trouble going through the area where Shotgun has that body double because I just don't understand how you kill the body double that was made out of materia???? Can you explain that to me because every single time I try to get through it I die and it's very frustrating to deal with.

That's kind of a real-time battle, not a turn-based battle. You need to get the clone in front of Shotgun, in any direction, and press Z to use your gun.
But the clone gives you damage if it touches you, so you need to dodge it.
Hey, I just downloaded the game and so far my character just keeps running to the right. is there a fix for this? also, why am I limited to just shotgun female as a playable character?

I don't have idea why this is happening. Maybe something with your keyboard? And it's just shotgun because giving the option of choosing different characters would actually take too much time, re-working the dialogue, gameplay, play-testing, and fixing different stats for every choice.
Hello. Thanks for making this. I've always wanted to play through it. Having alot of fun with it. Hopefully your still around because I got a question.

Is there something I'm missing with the fight against ??? In chp 3? They always kill me in one hit. I havnt came across any kind of upgrades so I'm not sure.
Also when you lose this fight, the game bugs out. It let's you walk around but you cant exit the room. When you touch the square at the top it retriggers the previous cutscene and puts you back in the fight, but since your dead, you auto lose.

Hi. I'm glad that you're enjoying it. I believe that you're talking about the first fight against Elfe. She's overpowered in this fight, so the player really can't win against her. After being defeated, it triggers the next cutscene. It works fine on the pc, i believe, but it may have some bug that do not trigger the cutscene, if you're playing on EasyRPG on android.
I have downloaded it, but how do I play it? There's nothing but a bunch of files and folders. Please excuse me if I've omitted to do something obvious. I'm a bit of a noob at this.
