About This Game

Backstory



Marine is young - too young to endeavor great things.
But Marine is a fighter and she refuses to accept fate.
Because her fate is to be a peasant and probably die young - a disease, or a predator, whatever, you always die of something in the murky lands of Myst.

So when her father is critically injured, Marine decides to fight back and take over the crusade he can no longer pursue.
Which crusade? To challenge the feared Lords of Mystrock, the rich megalopolis of Myst, and defeat them in a traditional showdown that decides the rulers of the world.
Everybody keeps telling Marine it's impossible and she'll end up swatted like a fly.
But what do YOU think?

Introduction
Millennium - A New Hope a beautiful RPG Maker game. The story follows Marine a girl how refuses to accept her fate as a peasant. She decides to fight back and challenge Lords of Mystrock. There is not much to say about the game elements in Millennium - A New Hope, all of the games mechanics/elements are all great and solid. This is a basic stand JRPG, there is not really any catches or massive differences. The only thing that I didn’t really care for in this game is the fact that the NPCs are very bland and generic. If you are a big fan of the typical old-school JRPGs Millennium - A New Hope is a game for you.
Pros

  • Well-made RPG/JRPG
  • Great price
  • Awesome assets
  • Controller support
  • Tons of content for the price
  • Awesome music
  • Interesting story



Cons

  • NPCs feel very generic
  • Lots of dialogue seems unnecessary
  • Typical RPG Maker game
  • Limited graphics option


Conclusion

Millennium - A New Hope is a beautiful old school JRPG that has the typical gameplay that everyone loves. The NPCs dialogue is very bland and generic, but the story is very interesting and will pull you in. The best part of Millennium - A New Hope is the fact that this game is so cheap. It’s a great value and I would highly recommend picking up Millennium - A New Hope, especially if you enjoy old school JRPGs.

Fun and challenging RPGMaker (JRPG) game.

My major complaint is that there is no steam overlay support (can't take a screenshot, no steam notifications when I get a msg, etc.), the alt to this is playing it in window mode, which is locked at a really low res (640x480?).

That being said I picked up the rest of the series in bundles or steam sale and look fwd to playing them.

Millenium is very nice game if you enjoy old schooll rpgs. There is lot to discover and option to turn on visible encounters so you can avoid most battles if you want. Grinding is not requred to complete the game even in hard mode so most of the gameplay is discovering new stuff.

Start of the game is little slow as you control only one character and money is very tight. Later on you will get new members. By then the game really starts to pick up. You can find some fantactical locations in dungeons, most music tracks are very good and banter between team members can be pretty funny.

There is lots of optional stuff like secred rooms and sidequests. The main quest is a bit short as this is only a first part of the series. I will propably get next one in the series once there is a sale. You can import your save file to the next game so there is incentive to find everything.

Very solid RPGmaker game 7/10.

Millennium - A New Hope is the first part of a series of 5 games. The story continues over all 5 parts.

It is a typical jrpg.

I liked the idea of having a fairy living in the left earring, which always comments various things or heals you during battle. I also enjoyed the animal sounds of the cow, the sheep or the dog if you try to talk to them. Lots of little things you notice when you play the game.

When you play on easy in story mode and with help cursor on it is quite easy. I prefer my jrpgs easy, otherwise they can become a terrible grind. This game can be set to easy, so you can enjoy the story.

I think this game is really good for its price. I got a lot of time out of it and I actually had fun. While the story is your run of the mill "be the hero and do the good thing" story its still nice. One of my favorite details is gold is sparse because bears and ants dont have coin purses, so you have to sell the loot from killing ♥♥♥♥ to get money. My real complaint is how limited it is. If this wasnt limited to the RPG maker engine it could be so visually wonderful and there could be a lot more going on with the world. Overall its 10 hours of game for 6 dollars. ITS BETTER THEN THE ORDER 1886! SHOTS FIRED, SO TOPICAL!
