Chrono Echoes - Official Sequel to Chrono Alter!
« on: March 01, 2010, 09:15:30 am »
Have a look at this:

http://rpgmaker.net/games/1899/

Platform: RPG Maker 2003
Genre: Traditional RPG
Release Date: TBD
Production Status: 3%

Chrono Echoes is a fan-sequel to Chrono Trigger, and the official sequel to Chrono Alter. The game will take place four years after the end of Alter.

As you may have guessed from the title, this game has a lot to do with Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes. In fact, this is an adaptation of CT:CE to be a CAlter sequel. I have obtained permission from Zeality to go ahead with the project.

Plot Intro
"Four years after the defeat of the Dream Devourer, Crono, Marle, and Lucca find that their lives have drastically changed. Lucca has adopted a baby girl she found in the woods, and is embracing Motherhood while she works on re-creating a 'Time Egg', the item that brought Crono back to life. Crono and Marle are preparing themselves for the throne.

During this time, the nations of Guardia and Porre begin to have multiple disagreements. King Guardia grows uneasy, as Porre has gathered a powerful army. Nobody knows how such as small nation has risen to power, and Crono begins to suspect an old enemy is at work in his time..."

Features:
-The final adventure of the CT Team.
-Schala as a fully playable character.
-Working Caterpillar system.
-15-20 hours of gameplay.
-Branching story.
-Return of Time Travel.
-Mp3 only soundtrack.
-Mapping nearly identical to Chrono Trigger.
-Element System for Magic.

It's shaping up to be rather kick ass man, I think you were just 'warming up' so to speak with Alter, and now you are pretty darned experienced with the system you are using(rm2k3). I can't wait to see the final result, here's to your success! GOD WILLS IT! GOD WILLS IT! GOD WILLS IT!

This is true. I'm much more experienced now. I know a lot more about coding and whatnot.

I'd keep this project on the DL if I were you gentlemen. A remake of a game ordered C&D'd with the approval of the person recieving the C&D is not legal water you want to tread.

Meh. Not a remake, really.

To clarify, we are not remaking Crimson Echoes in Rm2k3. We are going to take the concept of Crimson Echoes, and mold it into something new.

It's an adaptation of the concept, not the game.

An adaption of the concept is still risky legal territory. I'm just cautioning you.

CE was C&D'd because it was made in Temporal Flux, which uses a copyrighted rom as the root file. Alter was made on its own, not from TF.

And if you're about to say "What about CTR?", CTR was made using unlicensed GameCube development software.

If SE would bother to go after this, they'd might as well purge Newgrounds of everything SE franchise related, including CT Unglued, Chrono Who, Magus Bros Shorts, CT Apocalypse... By that time however, surely someone would want their executives "taken care of."

yeah they didn't seem to threatened by Alter, I'm guessing they are ok with the rpg maker system.

Either that or they don't know about it.

When the C&D struck, the commanded all ROM hacks be taken down. Chrono Chronicles was on the Compendium at this point in time, and the did not have it removed. Curious, no?

ROM hacks, not projects altogether.

If there was a site that hosted a hacked, modded Windows 7 installation, and a Unix variant (like Ubuntu or Debian), chances are M$ would only have the hack taken down.... most likely from a lawsuit instead of C&D.... they love money more than anything. That could be an example I guess.
