We could do a ROM hack in which we replace all the main characters with sprite versions of their alpha art (Marle with pink curly hair and a gi, Robo looking like a different robot, Frog tweaked, Ayla looking somewhat like Android 18, etc).

We could go even further back to the original sketches -- Robo looked like the Mammon Machine, Frog looked like a crazed half-frog, half cave-man, Crono was more radical, etc. Since Gaspar was in that art (and intended to be the eighth character), we could even swap out his sprite.

So the ROM hack would really just require us to create the new sprite sheets and swap them in.

I think I like it better than OG Marle, haha!

Also, did you put that together, TheMage? Nice!

Consider your conscious clean, Vehek. You are hereby forgiven. :D

Just joshing ya... No forgiveness even necessary; I don't think anyone even gave it a second though. You're still the best, though!

This theory is largely in line with what I assume the case is.

At the end of the day, as you said, we know Lucca rescued Kid in Another World and the orphanage has pictures of Crono and friends, indicating that they were still around (or at least long enough for infant Kid to meet them). Heck, we don't even know the extend of Porre's invasion in Another World versus Home World.

At the end of the day, I am a big proponent of the merged timeline theory; with the Chrono Cross, a freed Schala unified both Home and Another timelines and created a more optimal future. I would wager that this future would also bode better for Crono and friends.

I do like how your theory crafts out these variations between where Crono and company are, though (a defeat at 1999AD).

I love this idea! Keep it going!

I remember I got stuck at the End of Time, because 11 year old couldn't figure out clockwise, haha... I rage-quit and ended up figuring it out the next day.

Played for about an hour today and I just rescued Queen Leene.

Good thing you were able to resolve that paradox! Did you know you have two options during the prison escape? You can choose to break out, or wait the three days until Crono's execution. If you haven't done both, I recommend at least checking out to see what happens if you wait.

One thing I never knew about Chrono Trigger, and this was before I had Internet, was that you can get Magus. I think I was baffled or astonished when I first looked up that you can get him.

Same here! I generally play as good characters / paragons / whatever and didn't want revenge on Magus, only to be surprised when he joined me for it. I also remember after the dialogue ended (but before he joins) being confused because there were no activations left on the screen. I kept trying to talk to Magus thinking there was more to the scene before I gave up and tried leaving the map, only to have him stop me.

I had no idea that Chrono Trigger had multiple endings. I beat the game once and immediately began a second playthrough on NewGame+.

I got to the first battle with Lavos (at the Ocean Palace) and decided to see what happens when you're not beat by Lavos and found the Developers Room. I was so confused; this would have been late summer to early fall of 1996.

When the one character asks if you'd like to see 'Chrono Trigger 2' I was ecstatic -- until his follow up response: "Wouldn't that be nice?" Talk about your heartbreak.

Hey vidkid!

Welcome tot he party! Glad to see you join.

If you have any questions or need any help, feel free to reach out! We're a pretty small, but friendly group.

Pink-haired Marle with a more Crono-esque outfit (sort of a gi-like thing).

Ayla lookin' all like Android 18 from DBZ in a full-body dress/skirt.

Robo lookin' like a squat little alien robot guy.

I don't think I ever noticed that Marle has pink hair in the alpha screenshot(s)!

I'm horrible and have yet to play it. I keep adding it to various wishlists but never have made the purchase. Bahahaha.

I better get down to it before the anime airs. I hate being a latecomer!

I assume you did this in Photoshop or another picture editing program (and not via hacking; ie Temporal Flux).

Either way, this is impressive! I think all this is great front page material!

This is a great right up. I know hiragana and katakana but never bothered to learn kanji, but from what I can see you are spot on. Great investigation and translation work.

As for the bridge name...

"face; looks; vestiges; trace"

Could Omokage have been the original name of Truce Village? I could see 'Truce' being a Woosley-esque translation of 'Trace.'
