The Story

Nostalgia 07

You start out watching a scene where the famous adventure, English archeologist Gilbert Brown, rescues a girl from an organization that is searching for rare and ancient treasures. From the looks of it, this organization has been using this girl to gain access to these hidden treasures since she is the only one who can touch them. Just as they are about to use her to acquire one of these treasures Gilbert rushes in to whisk her away from them. Risking his life fighting them off and just as he almost makes his daring escape, the most unthinkable thing happens. He fails, and ends up falling from his airship.

Soon after Gilbert’s botched rescue attempt, word reaches England that Gilbert has gone missing and that his Airship has been found floating on the ocean. Eddie fears that something terrible has happened to his father and takes up the duty to find him. He quickly joins the adventurers guild to try and dig up information on his father and ventures from England to his last known location. It is soon after this that he and his team of rag tag adventurers gets rapped up in a twisting tale of world domination. As well as each of his adventurers personal life and desires.

  1. I picked this one up. Really good! If you like rpgs like grandia, lunar or skies of arcadia, this one definetly up your alley.

  2. Awesome. I was honestly considering trying this one out. I’m a huge fan of old-school RPGs, and this seems to be based off of those. I can’t wait to give it a whirl. Good review by the way, you seemed to cover all the bases, or at least everything I’d need to know to get me interested.

  3. How the hell did they get to NYC?

    Anyway, cool, more old-school RPGS.

  4. Props to Will, as this is a damn fine point.

    One of my current favorite games is Fallout 3. I cant get enough of the game… the gameplay, the ambiance, just everything about it is fun. But I absolutely hate the storyline, if you could even call it that. Something in my mind forgives the complete lack of story. Im not sure what it is.
