    Tales Across Time is a linear, story-driven RPG experience from the creator of 8-Bit Adventures: The Forgotten Journey. It uses the classic short-story format to tell the tale of three very different characters; each living centuries apart, but in the same location.


    Each narrative presents a different experience. Explore a haunted, ancient ruin; help a young woman save her town and her love; face off with an unstoppable masked killer. Many tales have been told across time; will yours be able to transcend it?


    Featuring:

    • Experience Three Gripping Tales, each set in a different time period.
    • Unique Turn-Based Battle System - built around resource management & one-on-one encounters.
    • Discover Engaging Characters and People with Personality.
    • Same Location, Different Environment - explore a familiar land, transformed by the passage of time.
    • Battle a Wide Variety of Monsters, which constantly change-up combat.
    • A Narrative-Focused Experience - keeps the story going and doesn’t waste your time (no grinding/filler).

    This looks interesting! I like how the maps and sprites look a lot. I'll give it a shot when I get home tonight, more than willing to drop $2.99.

    Thank you very much for the kind words Lymmet! I'm sorry to say, though, that I probably won't make a game using this style/structure again (it didn't really pay off, sadly). Regardless, glad you enjoyed it so much! =D

    No, any assets that weren't created for the game came from either the RPG Maker Web store or OpenGameArt.org.

    You did a great job with this! It really comes off as its own thing, and doesn't really resemble the stock RPGMaker experience.  The trailer also had some pretty cool stuff (such as battling that monster and only having the sillouettes visible.


    Very cool! I honestly might check this out soon!

    Thank you very much SeagullKing! I sincerely appreciate the kind words. I always try to make things as visually interesting as I can with limited resources haha, so I'm glad that sort of thing stood out to you! Hope you enjoy the game if you check it out =D
