Seiken Densetsu / Mana Fan Game

1 post in this topic

Hi guys, I'm new here.
I been making this game for quiet some time. The idea is to combine the assets from the Seiken Densetsu / Mana franchise into
a single game. The game will have a back-story as for why things are "mix-up". I'm thinking something in terms of the "Turtles Forever" TMNT movie.

[spoiler][media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GRz2UXFA5yM&noredirect=1[/media][/spoiler]

Obviously, the game wiil be free to play once finished. As for now it is only a demo.

BTW: The Chrono Trigger map is only a place holder and soon will be removed!
