Edge of Eternity is an indie tribute to J-RPG classics such as Final Fantasy, Suikoden, and Dragon Quest. It boasts a unique universe blending fantasy with science-fiction, intense ATB battles, and a branching storyline.  A playable demo is now available for download on the game’s Kickstarter page, so let’s take it for a spin!

On February 17th, 2015, Edge of Eternity surpassed its funding goal of $44k with over a month to spare. Currently, at its basic funding goal, the game is to be released on PC, Mac, and Linux.  Stretch goals include next gen console releases, a breeding system, crafting system, and orchestral music by Yasunori Mitsuda (who has composed music for such classics as Chrono Trigger.)  At the time of this post, Early Bird specials are still available but are going fast.

Its recent success followed an earlier failure when a previous attempt at funding the JRPG resulted in a cancellation without even half of its whopping $200k funding reached. Edge of Eternity’s warmer reception this year is suspected to have to do with its lowered funding goal, improved character designs, better concept art, and improved presentation on Kickstarter.

The Edge of Eternity Kickstarter runs until March 22nd, and is definitely worth checking out.
