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

The Good:

Tons of content, with more to come (devs are currently producing an expansion). Scratches that ol' SNES Final Fantasy itch. Non linear to a degree, if that's your thing. Great stat allocation.

The Not-So-Good:

The map is monumentally awful. Balance could be better, as if you're a grinder you can quite easily become so powerful that nothing but the Superbosses (and navigating the ludicrous map) present any real challenge. Ending left me wanting, but that's likely down to taste.

Worth the purchase if you dig JRPGs, though, for sure. I've spent almost a hundred hours interacting with this thing, and only now am I finding myself bored. Looking forward to the new expansion.

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.

A RPG Maker game that uses many default assets, but really knows how to nail the storytelling and general JRPG experience! A must-try if you have played anything from the SNES or early PS1 era.

Keeping this one REALLY short:
Like Final Fantasy? Like JRPG's? Yeah? Then this game is for you ;D. It's like Square Enix decided to make a 2D Final Fantasy again. In my opinion this is the best RPG-Maker game out there! Only complaint i have is that you have to grind a lot to progress in the game. If that doesn't put you off than this game is for you!

40 something hours and I'm still going. With multiple character types, you can play and replay several times to try new strategies with different compositions. Very FFIV-ish overworld with lots of exploration and nooks and crannies.

The end game is broken by literal P2W ( with in game currency hahahah), since you can Casino exploit gold, and with gold comes free skill points, items, and all the other things that make the game more simple. It is extremely fun and customizable though. Overall, as for a 2-D throwback, it hits the mark dead on. Forget the RPGM aspect, the game is quality as all hell. 9/10.

Great game. Reminded me of my 10th BDay playing through FF1, enjoying every minute. It was exactly what I was looking for.

Square could have released this game as the "lost sequel to the original Final Fantasy."

If you want an old-school JRPG akin to the early Final Fantasy and Dragon Quest/Dragon Warrior games, you can't go wrong with Last Dream.

I know seeing that this was made in RPGMaker may make a lot of gamers out there skeptical of purchase, I certainly was hesitant at first, but thankfully my fears were unfounded. This game is fully realized, deep, and polished, but easy to get into, and without overwhelming you with extraneous minutiae, the way some needlessly complex games can.

Last Dream is a professional production made by people with a deep understanding of what makes these games tick. The mechanics are fun and engaging, and it is well-balanced throughout... although I'm not really sure how one makes it through the "Legendary" difficulty. I tried that out briefly and I'll just say that you'd better be some next-level kind of hardcore player to consider taking that on.

Anyway, I've completed the entire game, done pretty much all of the optional content (of which there is quite a bit), and done a full "Reborn" run (restart from the beginning with a level 1 party retaining all your end-game items), so I know this game well. Summing up my experience, I felt like I was playing an early 90's AAA Square or Enix made JRPG from an alternate reality, and that's a good thing!

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.

A game about grinding and micro management. I was a bit confused when the initial configuration included an option to skip all cutscenes, but I got it after playing for a bit that the story is a mere filler in this grind fest. You don't get gold for defeating monsters Instead you'll get ingredients to 'synthesize' gear or just to sell them to buy useful things. When you level up you get points that you have to spend on your attributes and skills. This sounds like a great way to customize your characters, but it turns out to be more a waste of time and keeping track of things that could happen automatically.

Take out the story from an JPRG and throw in a lot of micro management and you'll end up with this. If you are mainly interested in the grinding in JRPGs this game might be what you've been looking for.

This game is a love letter to final fantasy 1 through 6. If you like any of those than you have to play this game. I have played for about 8 hours so far and I am really liking this and it is somewhat of a departure from Final Fantasy because it allows you to apply increases to all your stats when you level up which allows for some freedom. You have to be somewhat intelligent on how you apply the increases depending on your party and the variety is there since you can pick any combination of classes just like in Final Fantasy 1. If you want all black mages you can do that. But balance is also important. You even get an upgraded version of each class just like in Final Fantasy 1.

The references to Final Fantasy are also everywhere in this game. This game also does not reinvent the wheel or do anything all that fancy but if you yearn for the old days of Final Fantasy when things were a little more simple and grinding was the order of the day then this is the game for you.

Combat is the same as FF too. Random Encounters that go to a different "battle screen". Using strategy is sometimes important and buffing abilities are extremely important especially in boss battles. The combat is not too challenging and as long as you understand the way each class works and there strengths it is pretty easy.

This game definitly caters to a niche fan base and as such may not be the best for people that are not fond of old school JRPGs.

Most RPG maker games suck, this is a true gem! If you enjoyed final fantasy one this is a beautiful rendition of that type of game, The story is ok at best but the gameplay and party customization along with all of the great systems in this game are what keep me playing. There is a 700 page pdf file that comes with the game. You can tell that this is a labor of love and the guys who made this game really have my respect. This is a must have for anyone who enjoys rpg maker type games and/or the final fantasy series.

I recommand this game to those who enjoyed classics JRPG games like the old Final fintasy games. WHY? Because >>

- It has an intersting skills set , and a unique leveling system ( which gives you more freedom to develop your characters' stats in any way you like )
- A vast and rich world where you can roam free with different environments and settings
- A good crafting system and a variety of content to experience ( like solving puzzles, fishing, and treasures hunting)

This game worth its price, you won't be disappointed.

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.

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.

Holy chicken alfredo!

This game is awesome. I haven't been addicted to an old school rpg since... since well, Final Fantasy was actually worth being addicted to! That's a lot of years... newer age rpg's don't count cause of the difference in graphics and advancements in techology. Anyways... this game is really good.

I got this game for literally a dollar cause I had a steam coupon. WORTH EVERY PENNY. Would I pay $10? Hmmm.... heck yeah. But if you're unsure, wait for a price drop, ya wallet pincher.
