Development


Our development team is comprised of people who deeply cherish the RPGs of our childhoods.

We began developing Last Dream to be the central element of our decades-running annual RPG Tournament among physics graduates. That is, we started with the sole desire to craft an enduring game that we would personally enjoy.

As Last Dream progressed and over 50 creative individuals became involved, we realized that other people might enjoy our game as well. Now, after investing thousands of collective hours in game development and testing, and after receiving such generous support from the Kickstarter and Steam communities (thank you!!), we present you with Last Dream - the first in a trilogy.

The Last Dream Expansion and Last Dream II are currently in development. Our progress can be viewed here: Last Dream Expansion and here: Last Dream II

Amazing game, was not expecting this much. This game plays like the old SNES Final Fantasy games, but adds some of the complexity and sidequests found in later entries in the series. You party is very customizable, and you control your members' level ups.

This game is really fun. It has most of the good stuff from old RPGs from SNES and some new stuff like getting to add the points to your character. You also can't mess up since you could eventually max all the characters' stats if played long enough. They made NPCs say different things after most story events and they have some move to different towns throught the story, but not just following you. They have the 50 floor dungeon similar to Lufia 2 cave, except not as good since you can't bring the special items back in. There are tons of optional things you can do like race the birds, which is better than on FF since you can win just by pushing the correct buttons and no randomness. You can fish to get gold super easy and the fish are good for healing, but you don't have to and there is no terrible mini game for the fishing. It just works when you do it and you almost always get a fish. Just buy 99 bait and set it to turbo or Autohotkey it (Would have been better with no delay and to just have the option to fish x99 in 1 second, but oh well.) If you put it on the hardest mode, it starts out slow because you will need to grind a long time, but the game gets easy by the end. They build in a battle macro system where you can preprogram a set of moves to do for a round. This saves a ton of time and was one of the best improvements ever for turn based battles. I will have a hard time playing any other turn based game after this since I am spoiled by only having to hit like 3 button presses to fight a round instead of 57 like other RPGs. You get to pick your classes at the start and you can choose from 8 classes, so you can replay the game and try different strategies, although the characters didn't feel very different to me. There are many items to equip and you can craft and do side quests to get alot of stuff. This will give you something to do if you get stuck at any point right after the start and you won't need to just grind. I deffinetly recommend this game when it is on sale of if it gets in a bundle.

"Should I buy this game?" That's the most important question to answer in a review, I think, and I'll answer that first: Probably. If you're even looking at the reviews for this game, chances are that you like the overall concept of it. Given that, yes, you absolutely should buy it. The gameplay is well-balanced and intuitive, the options are truly varied, and the old-school JRPG feeling really shines on here. A lot of love and a lot of learning have gone into this, and it shows.

Now, to be a bit more specific:

Visuals - Fantastic. Great art, very clear and quite pretty. Solid readability when encountering new things.
Music - Varies. Sometimes it's great, sometimes it's jarring, and many of the choices made here were just plain bizarre.
Balance - Wonderful. You have the freedom to choose how you want to play, and cleverness will be rewarded.
Replay - High. The various combinations for the main team, as well as some in-story decisions, invite exploration.
Writing - Good. It's really quite strong in a few spots, but my socks were not knocked off.
Clarity - Good. If you read the strategy guide at all, bump that up to Near Perfect.

Overall: Very highly recommended. I've really enjoyed my time spent in this game, and plan to spend much more. If you happen to find this game on sale or in a bundle, then pick it up even if it seems like it's not your thing. The game is just that good.

If you've played FF1, then you know what you're getting into. Party of four, eight classes to choose from. Dramatically changes your strategies throughout the game. Non-linear gameplay (although no choices for the player) and no quest tracking. Fishing, bounties, the arena and crafting have kept me entertained far longer than the main story.

I wholly love this game and plan on playing through it several more times. If you enjoyed FF1/2, Breath of Fire series, even Dragon Warrior III (or earlier), grab this game!!

P.S. - Last Dream has many nods to the FF that inspired it. Cid exists. The Ice Cave has mobs that insta-kill you. You have to travel through a volcano that has lava floor. Silver Sword is kind of a big jump for when you get it. Masamune can be equipped by everyone. Giant Moas (Chocobos).

This is an exellent game. Last Dream is a labor of love. It harkens back to the old jrpgs; the Final Fantasy's and Dragon Warriors. The soundtrack is a bit odd, I admit, alternating between Rock, Metal, Classical, and a style that I can't identify. The plot seems good, but I'm only in the first few hours. If your looking for graphics, look elswhere. This is a game that tugs at your heartstrings, making you yearn for games of old while also fulfilling that need. 5 Stars, Three Thumbs up (I got my dog in on it). Look up Extra credits review of it, on James Recommends for more info.

Very solid classic jrpg style game. Damage balance is a little off since it is 4x attack - 2x defense making hits either blow up your characters or just hit for 1 with little room in between.

Really fun little game for 4$. Graphics are definitely old school style and colorful. Word to the wise: You WILL need to get a firm grasp on the basic elements to succeed well at it. The in game tutorials are huge and a must. That said, if your characters aren't powerful enough to proceed in the story, you can always improve them with easier enemies until you're ready to move on.

If you're looking for a great old school RPG that has character, charm, excellent gameplay that will take up absurd amounts of your life, look no further!

I like these old school style RPG Maker games, but most of them kind of fall flat of what they should be. They lack basic quality of life improvements, or are glitchy. This one seems a lot more polished then a lot of the other ones on Steam.

Terrible keyboard controls with no reasonable remapping options. I've tried multiple times to get used to them, but even with a cheatsheet they're wonky enough to be beyond frustrating. It's probably a good game, but I've given up trying to find out - the controls are a dealbreaker.

Unsuited to keyboard and Valve should not be selling garbage like this for the PC platform. Could be a decent game but I won't even play it and wish I could get my money back just due to the ridiculously lame keyboard controls.

If I wanted to play games with a controller I'd revert to my childhood and buy a console system.

i couldn't make it to level 2 because my character is trapped in the sewers perpetually running to the right, also my down arrow stopped working while i was trying to fix the right arrow.. I've tried many things to fix it, but why would i want to invest more time into this game if it could potentially bug out like this after i've sunk hours into it

This is a great game. If you liked any of the older Final Fantasies (I-IV), this is right up your alley.

The combat system is typical turn based JRPG. You control how you level down to each stat choice, and 8 different classes to choose from means your party has a large number of combinations to try out.

The game world is very vast and there is quite a lot to explore. It's RPGMaker, so you get what you get, but aside from those limitations,

The music is diverse and gives the game a great atmosphere as the song choice was very good for each location you visit.

There are many mini-games to play that are fun. The world is filled with 50 puzzles, some hard, some easy, all puzzling. Racing Moas (Read: Chocobos), battling monsters in the Arena, and gambling in the casino give you plent to do alongside the side quests and main story.
