Bringing this over from another forum since you guys seem more experienced and knowledgeable about vidya games -


So yeah; seeing Suzuki playing Warriorcats reminded me of the old days in the late 90s playing my own rpg. I remember it was really fun and/or addicting; so much so that I used my hour lunch break for school in the Philippines for playing it. I want to see if it's still around and play it again~ You're gonna need some details to help whittle down the thousands out there.

As already mentioned in the other forum:

- 2D
- Computer-based (Windows 95 or 98, as this was the 90s)
- Medieval or Middle Ages-based, y'know, knights, kings, and princesses, as well as some archers, thieves, magicians, and thieves tagging along
- Bird's eye-view: camera looks at the top of the head, but somewhat at an angle so you can see the characters' faces
- Offline
- Pixels~ like Warcraft but different styled
- Big head character design, but not too big. Similar to what you see in egoboo.
- It may have been downloaded from download.com or some other free download site and not bought. It was the early days of computer rpgs~ some of the best story and mechanics came up 'round these times so even free games were good ._.
- Battle screen; battles are not like in Diablo where you fight enemies right on the map or terrain, but rather like Pokemon or the Final Fantasies before XII

Games it is not:
Warcraft
egoboo
Ultima Online
Meridian 59
Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds
Tibia
Lineage
Mir 2
Endless online
Diablo
Age of Empires
Star Craft
Doom
Might and Magic

Games it could be:
Something made using a version or form of RPG Maker

Diablo. For sure, its Diablo. Classic Action/ Role-Playing Game.

It most definitely wasn't Diablo. The camera in Diablo is angle too far down toward the ground.

Another aspect you just helped me remember: the battle sequences were like the classic FF - on a preset battle thing, not on the actual map.

..?

I have no idea.

Hrm....

What did the main characters look like?

First post was tl;dr
I don't remember any intro that showed a closeup or full view of the characters. But I do remember they wore Golden Sun-esque clothes.

Another detail: the characters look the same when going out into the world map as in the non-world map areas.

Oh no I know exactly what you are talking about but I can't remember it's name!

When you go into battle is it sort of like a chessboard with your team on one side and the enemies on the other? And could you get Archangels and monks?

Uhh.. no. Actually I'm not sure; your description is so vivid it makes me think maybe it was. But I never noticed a chessboard on the floor of the battle screen, and I mean the black-and-white-checkered kind of chessboard. There may have been lined squares on the floor. JUST TELL ME WHAT GAME YOU'RE THINKING ABOUT ;-;

No there wasn't a chess board that was just the best way I could think to describe it cause you're team is on one side of the map and the enemies is on the other and they were lines up like pieces on a board I think.

Wow, I'm also searching this game for years.

At start you will change the skin color, and stuff in your avatar. Then you'll wake up in a castle then some "Sir" will talk to you and once you attacked one of those guards they'll chase you and kill you.

You can learn swordsmanship, fireball/magic, bow and arrow. You can open chests and get what's inside, roam around the castle to search for items. You can buy tunics in the market. And also, there is a strong guard using a tower shield, so you can steal it by killing that guard.
