Hm, I wonder if anyone from Square Enix has been playing the Crimson Echoes demo... :lee: That'd be cool.

Maybe they'd remember how it was before everything was about "corporate success"

Chrono Crisis and Crimson Echoes are tied for me. I chose Crimson Echoes though because I love CT and the chars, so I'll probably love it, since it involves the same characters I already know and love.


Sorry for resurrecting the thread. >.>

Chrono Crisis...

simply because it's the one I KNOW BEYOND THE SHADOW OF A DOUBT is making real, true progress...

If this novel project is just a scam by ZeaLitY, I'll kill him in his sleep. I love reading things like this. It gives me a better understanding of things. Like... if I could read FF8 as a book, I might be more likely to play it as a game.

... well, for Schala, here, I guess, zombie threads are as common as zombie Aurons. Damn you, Seymour! Quit making Auron a zombeh!

Um, the CTNP has been around for longer than the Compendium. I've never been an advocate because it treats itself like it's more than just the fanfiction that it is.

Aha, that is the first time in a while I've used that picture in a positive context. Yes, I do not sleep; I wait...

... I... I'm gonna curl up... and watch illegally dubbed Code: Geass now... *sniff* I hate you all... I was PSYCHED about this... but good news is, sis says if I bring back some pants I swiped, I can play ROMs again!

On the topic of Chuck Norris... Chuck Norris eats steak every night. But he forgets to kill the cow.

I'm rather interested in how Square will react to the Novel Project. The writing quality is excellent IMHO (I found the passage about fern leaf chili at the Imp's house touching for some bizarre reason -- reminded me of the detail Tolkien would give to a random Hobbit meal), making it of greater-than-negligible threat to Square's/Kato's/Horii's/whoever's intellectual property. I think the novel team is going to submit a proposal to Square Enix at some point.

Fan novels, when treated right, can be very beautiful works of art. My favorite video game-to-novel adaptation, by far, was a Mortal Kombat book published a very long time ago. That author took great liberties with the story, and it worked. Thing is, there was very little material to work with in the Mortal Kombat universe at that point in time, giving the author largely free reign over the scenario. The CT Novel Project seems to be pretty focused on re-creating canon, which makes me worry about the Project's ability to maintain a proper suspension of disbelief, which is key if the work is to appeal to audiences outside Chrono fandom. I mean, we've got talkng dinosaurs and giant space slugs here.

Will Compendium theory be featured in the CT Novel Project? How would everyone feel about that sort of thing? Seems to me incorporating some technical explanation for what the heck's going on could only enrich the work. And some amount of technical explanation is crucial to maintaining a suspension of disbelief.
