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

I have to admit that I really hate RPG Maker games. The engine puts too many restraints on the developers, e.g. not being able to change the movement key bindings. The RPG Maker graphics are appealing, but lack uniqueness. But they convey a feeling similar to classic SNES games, which probably is the main goal of the engine.
That said, I really love Last Dream!
It is the only RPG Maker game which feels like it offers enough content for the price. The possibility to individualize each character is a great idea, but I would have preferred if they had taken it to the next level and left out character classes entirely. The story is simple, but decent enough and there is enough content to provide many hours of entertainment.
Even the price is reasonable.
If you like classic SNES RPGs, try Last Dream! Chances are you will enjoy it.

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.

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.

Yes, this is clearly a game made in RPGMaker, which other titles have given a poor reputation, for good reason.

Despite that, there are so many things Last Dream gets right, that I would advocate it being worth $5-10.

1) The character selection is a clear callout to FF1, with designing a party of 4 from 8 very distinct classes. This makes for some thoughtful character development decisions as well a major contribution to improving the replayability of the game.
2) Character development... You have full control over how your level ups improve each individual stat. This does kinda encourage min-maxing, but in a very good way. Even your damage dealers gotta have something to provide defense.
3) The game is not afraid of hiding lots of valuable treasures away for people who want to look for them, in the form of side quests and a very open world map that encourages you to find these locations. This is kinda a double edged sword on balance/difficulty, but the main quest can only be made very easy by beating side quests that likely were much more difficult than the main quest to begin with.
4) The soundtrack is very full of variety and a whole bunch of excellent tracks... Many of which are recognizable by people who have snagged these tracks that are commonly freely available on the internet before. It's cheap, but it really is a solid implementation of doing with minimal resources.
5) Puzzles! In just about every dungeon in the game, there's at least 1 room with a different kind of puzzle that needs to be solved. This puzzle room is free of monster-spawning, and is completely optional, for the sake of getting more loot. For me, they struck a perfect balance between challenging and solveable.
6) Replayability: Learning all the tricks to the all the above ultimately leads to a major design decision the developer made. Lots of support/achievements for speed-running, accomplishing 100% of the side quests (there are a LOT), etc.

Some potential negatives that exist:
1) The game almost encourages you to go ahead and try and break the balance. To some, this is a system that works really well, and to others, well, that's understandable.
2) Pretty obvious reuse of a lot of RPGMaker graphical assets. Given the market for the game, I don't forsee this being much of an issue.
3) At one point of the main quest, you'll probably find yourself doing something that you don't want to do in order for the quest to proceed. (being ambiguous to avoid spoiler alert).

"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.

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.

- overall: recommended if you like party RPGs (or JRPGs)

- playtime: around 40 hours for a single playthrough on "normal", not finishing every single questline (but most of them). high replayability.

- story: at first it seems like an excuse for a hack'n'slash, but then it gets actually interesting, especially mid game. the final cutscene can be VERY annoying if it's late and you just want to finish the game and go to sleep. (it's a ~15 min cutscene).

- gameplay/combat: overall good, though some things are a bit unbalanced (thief's throwing stars, I'm looking at you). once you get the powerful abilities it gets a bit repetitive, since you just spam them and one-hit almost every non-boss. but I have to admit I was a bit overleveled by the endgame. other than that, bosses are (usually) a real challenge.

- gameplay/character progression: fantastic, you build them the way you want. LOTS of options, and not just "flavour" ones, every decission matters.

- level design: overall good. I didn't noticed anything annoying regarding it, so, that's a good signal. on the other hand, I'm not sure I liked the "flavoured" dungeons, e.g. the dread woods (was that one?), where it seems to be a perpetual storm. sure, it added immersion, but it was kinda difficult to see where you were going....

- puzzles: some of them are actually intelligent ones, but some of them are just a matter of skill (eg. run following a pattern). overall good. also, you can skip them if you want.

- graphics: they fit the game. but obviously, if you are looking for fancy 3D graphics (like skyrim's), then looks elsewhere. this game is not about graphics.

- bottom thoughts: maybe I haven't played anough JRPGs to make a better comparison, but it kinda reminded me of pokemon. It has that kind of replayability, sadly, my backlog is too huge to starti it again now. It will have to wait a bit. also, be sure to take a look at the manual/guide. I'm not saying you need to follow the walkthrough, but in some points, it's well worth it to take a look at where you are supposed to go next. else you could keep wandering around for some time.... or finish a dungeon before you were supposed to start it. (say, I got to the end of the marsh before getting the crystals... and the medallion wasn't there, lol. it was a difficult dungeon, so I ended up overleveled. but it was FUN to take such a high-level dungeon a few levels under the recommendation. maybe I need to try a higher difficulty on my next playthrough)

I really love JRPG but a game made by RPGMaker isn't something that i love particularly. But this game got some good and bad point.

Pros:
-Diversity in leveling up your characters with some specific set as "Balanced", "Offensive" or "Defensive". Or you can put your "AP" in anything that you want.
-You can play 8 differents class.
-I love achievement and there's a lot in it. (Maybe not a "pros" for everyone)
-Puzzles and i lot of it.
-Lot of side quests.

Cons:
-The price.
-The story.

Note 7/10 (If you wanna play it, buy it while it's cheap.)

Simply put, a wonderful rpg that will raise your nostalgia level over 9000. With so many side quests and optional dungeons to explore, it's hard to imagine any turn based rpg enthusiast would ever get bored with this title.

Holy crap, I did not expect such an amazing game! I haven't had this much fun with an rpg since I was a kid. I've never played an rpg maker game before and had reservations about trying a game that looked very cheap and generic to be honest but I'm really glad I did. What the game lacks in original art it more than makes up for in game play and sheer scope. It does what old snes rpgs did so well then improves on them in subtle ways like letting players choose what skills to pick and the option to distribute character stats. This features are so well implemented that it makes you wonder how come it's so rare to see them in jrpg games.

The story is a little weak, you play a silent protagonist and your party members are completely anonymous henchman that get mentioned I think once in the entire game. There's a sort of trade off; instead of a tight narrative that restricts where and what your character can do like a more tradtional final fantasy story does, by not focusing on your character at first it allows for a very open world and gives the player a tremondous amount of freedom for exploration, especially once they get off the first continent. But the story does tighten up, you do get pulled into it more and more the further you get and I was pleasantly surprised by how good the ending was and by how varied it is depending on how you played through the game.

I don't like puzzles much, but they're all %100 optional which is a really nice and I found myself going out of my way to finish them all because they were so much fun. I've done almost every puzzle in the game (over 50!) and only a handful had me quit out of frustration or had me running to the strategy guide.

There's an amazing developer made guide for free, a giant 700 page pdf, and for a game this massive and complex it's a very welcome addition especially if you're new to this genre because this game pulls no punches when it comes to dificulty. Hard mode is extremely dificult, I consider myself a veteran of snes rpgs and this game had no qualms about kicking my ♥♥♥ and forcing me to reconsider my gear and what skills I should use for each character.

I can't recommend this game enough, can't wait for a sequel.

if you enjoy turn based combat, rpg's, good soundtrack and a sense of adventure, and options in your video game, then this is one you don't want to miss. this game is the definition of "classic rpg" taking the best elements from old-school rpgs, mixing them with a good soundtrack, simple and polished animations and a variation of options, from the very start of the game you can choose dificulty up from simple mob spawns, save points and even dungeon save points, this also includes you being able to change your party members from the start of the game setting it to your liking. The price is also very good and definetly worth it, and if you catch it on an offert, you won't regret it ever.

People still use 8bit style games and make master pieces like this one. Glad to know not every game producers are lazy programmers, designers and writers. Amazing game, you should try it... lotsa references of other turn based RPGs. You'll have a good time.

Exactly what I was looking for: a retro JRPG with all of the modern elements of complexity and individualization that would have made many of my old favorites (e.g. early Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Lufia games) so much more enjoyable and replayable. Cheers!

Extreamly well done. Makes me feel like I felt when I was a kid playing JRPG's on the NES and SNES. Story is kinda what you'd expect, but different enough that it feels interesting and fresh thoughout. ALOT of side content. Battle's can be difficult if you're not prepared. Music is awesome, though battle themes can get repetitive (expected). You can screw yourself royally if you dont pay attention to what you're doin on the skillpoint screen. Comes with a HUGE manual/guide in pdf form, really awesome for completionists. take a look at my time spent in this game. I enjoyed and continue to enjoy it thoroughly.

I like this game very much. I dont have many hours but i plan to put many more into this game.
the battles are great and well paced even cooler with the macro options. But on the flip side you can walk way out of your level range without any indication and the other problem i saw fishing why only at docks seems like you should be able to fish anywhere but you cant. Other then that game is great. the fastforward button oh how i love it so

One of the best classic JRPGs I've ever played.

Don't let the fact it's made in RPG maker deter you. The makers of this game are truly fans of the classic JRPG and the original final fantasy. If you enjoy those games, you'll love this. It has all of the classic throwbacks and combines it into a nicely refined package that is extremely fun to play.

Excellent replay value. I'm playing it again for the second time, making it one of my most played games of all time, and I'm having just as much fun as I did the first time. Hard is probably a good starting difficulty for first timers, though I'm having a lot of fun on Very Hard - the balance of the challenge at this difficulty is excellent. Legendary is a bit outlandish and far too hard at pretty much every turn, but, I suppose that's the point.

Classic RPG fan that liked the original final fantasies and thinking of getting this game? Stop thinking about it and go buy it.

This game is really good, the controls take a bit of getting used to, but then the game is a blast. It offers so much variety with the combos of classes and abilities, and really grabs the style of an old JRPG like Final Fantasy.

I am not a huge fan of JRPGs, but this is a wonderful little adventure.

Every character has unique dialogue, much of which changes as you progress the main story or side quests. There are hidden secrets tucked away in every town. There are treasures hidden behind every locked door.

It's charming, it has a wealth of achievements for completionists, and is flexible enough to accommodate many kinds of gamer. Micromanagers and those who don't really care, hardcore speedrunners or story-mode players, there is something for everybody here.
