    For dreams that can't be reached,
    Are you covering your hands with blood?
    Al's smile. A blue island in dreams.
    Reality covered in blood.

    In order to gain something, one must give something of the same value.
    This is alchemy's first law of equivalent exchange.

    At that time, we believed that to be the world's one and only truth.

    If one does not make a sacrifice, nothing can be accomplished....


    The game is based on the manga storyline of Hiromu Arakawa's manga, Fullmetal Alchemist, but the plot is set 5 years after the failed transmutation of their mother and Ed has finally accomplished restoring his brother's body.

    Ed's life seems perfect with a happy life in Central, living with Al and being promoted to Colonel and secretary of the Fuhrer and with Roy as the new General. But life soon takes a new turn...

    Now that all the holiday cheer and events have settled down, we’re back on working on BBI: R! Thank you all for playing and giving feedback about the project. Here are some cool let's plays we received!

    From Driftwood Gaming (Thanks dude!!)


    Russian Video Translation from Helena Wolf


    I have updated the progress tab but for a more in-depth explanation of where we are at:
    • Day 2 beyond is when the player can finally begin to make choices and affect what endings they will get. Hence, we will not be releasing any demos from this day forward to avoid future issues.

    • We are attempting to convert BBI:R to 1080p instead of 720p. We will give more news once this is finished.

    • The battle system’s Alchemy has been completely redesigned to follow the same gameplay as the GBA games such as “Stray Rondo” and “Omoide No Sonata.” The UI is currently under production.

    • An inventory display has been added to give the player a chance to glance at the items they will get. The UI is currently under production.

    • All of the UI has been completely redesigned. This is to follow modern standards for Visual Novels and give BBI:R an identity that is different from its predecessor.

    • The cursor has been updated to display Alphonse’s glove.

    • The map system has been updated to display which character is currently on an area. This is to avoid repeated save/load if you managed to miss the character you are aiming for.
    There’s still a lot of work to do but we hope that you will still follow our progress to the creation of this game!

    Hey Archeia, this looks interesting (and I want to try out a game made in VNM).
    But I've never actually read/watched any of the FMA series. Is prior knowledge acquired or do you think I'll probably understand from context?

    You kinda need some context because of some very specific events sadly. But I highly recommend watching a few episodes of FMA2003 (1-3, 5-9) if you want to enjoy it to the full extent.

    I gave up with both the FMA manga and anime just after starting them, but this is incredibly well designed. Love it.:kaoluv:

    Hey! It looks amazing!

    Just watched Brotherhood and the horrible Live Action movie, but the alternative universe of this game seems pretty interesting :)

    Will download as soon as I get into the other PC
