Chrono Trigger sequel.... NOT

Wow, when I read about an entire mod of Chrono Trigger done by a team who planned to release it for free, I was happily surprised, but when I read on that Square Enix sent a cease and desist letter to the team days before it was scheduled to be released I was much less surprised... and much more saddened.

The project began back in 2004(yes the assholes decided to let the team work on it for 5 years before asking them to stop) and is titled, Chrono Trigger: Crimson Skies. By the time work had stopped, it was at 98% completion and had 35 hours of gameplay (30 hours more than some RPGs I've played... FABLE!!!), 23 chapters, and 10 different endings. That already is quite an accomplishment. Many development studios take much more than 5 years and present much less to customers. These guys must have been quite dedicated.

Ever since the merger, Square Enix has been alienating and angering many of its long time fans. Imagine a little mom and pop's shop that serves the freshest, most mouth watering hamburgers you have ever eaten. There are even freshly cooked hand-cut french fries and home made pie. The next day you head over there, but instead of the store that you've grown to love more than your own child, you see a fuckin' Mcdonalds, and inside there are screaming children, obese parents, and the most disgusting teenage workers you've ever seen. That's what happened to Square.

Anyways, enough of my rant about them, here are some videos of the gameplay they released;

And here's a link to their project page;
