So, ultimately, what was this? Takahashi and his wife Sora's attempt to create something to rival FF? If so, is that why the funding was cut for VIII? Was there potential, or was this just a giant example of pretension and failed dream of a game designer who was originally attached to Chrono Trigger?

The company that made the software would design and ad and pay the magazine to print it. It was about as complicated as posting in one of those zoomer threads where you put a few pictures into a template to show how retarded and desperate for attention you are.

OK, but where are the previous versions of BuildGDX? Why the fuck doesn't the guy keep them up on his site when he updates it? I just want to compare performance across different versions ffs.

>Any tips?
Make sure you switch to dragoon when youre about to fight garuda or you'll have a bad time fighting against his thunder all magic. dont use the dwarf class or whatever its called. karetakas are the shit. have fun doing the dark knight dungeon where all enemies split unless you use katanas on them. make sure to use a guide for maps there or you'll have a shitty time. overall one of my favorite FFs and definitely one of my favorite games if not definite favorite on the NES.

I actually find the game too easy. Some tips

Play the university faction
-getting virtual world is #1 priority as they get more drones, otherwise virtual world and networks nodes are #1 priority as another faction

All civ games are about expanding as much as you can for as long as you can, then solidifying your gains. Pumping out tons of colonists is good early game. This strat is esp important bc free market disallows far expansion, but massively increases energy

Tech advantages are huge in this game, make sure to be ahead.

What made the original special was that it was designed, programmed, and visualized all by Eric Chahi himself. He was assisted only with the sound and actual production. The fact that it's all on-rails and scripted (hence the term coined to refer to it, "cinematic platformer") is what made it so special and memorable an experience. Any implicit "world-building" told through level/art presentation was meant to serve as a vehicle for invoking a certain emotional reaction. So, expanding on that world wouldn't get you anything more interesting than, say, the plot of exploring the home planet of a particular race in Mass Effect. The mechanics you described reduces it to some Uncharted/Dark Souls/Assassin's Creed Wannabe No. 843201. Being a copypasted mishmash of mechanics and level design choices from other games fundamentally misses the point of what Another World is all about.

The only way you'd make a good Another World sequel is by not making an Another World sequel. You'd need to make something completely new and different, but that follows in it's tradition. A few games that have already done something close to this in modern times are Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, and Cave Story. Cave Story, being completely handcrafted by one person, and being filled with a lot of storytelling via "show don't tell" follows in the tradition of a unified vision of what the game looks like as an end product. Sands of Time, while developed by a much larger team, follows in the vein of Another World in terms of mechanics and genre; a "cinematic platformer" in the sense of being on-rails and having emphasis on puzzle-solving and exploration within the confines of said rails.
