This one looked appealing to me, so I'm glad to hear it's another of the good ones. Ride On seems to be one of the more reliable of Kemco's development partners, at least recently.

Perhaps it really is a doorway, and if you choose to go inside, you'll find many unexpected things." - Shigeru Miyamoto on secret doors to another world

Good to see that Kemco's trundling along as usual. I never found myself interest in this genre, but it's got a nice aesthetic.


Look, the only time I'm not wrong is when I'm right, so...

Psh, no way I'm playing THAT many Kemco RPGs. This one was at least better than Everdark Tower.

I think the thing about Kemco games is that they bleed into a lot of other JRPGs if you've played enough of them. Like, right now, I'm playing Radiant Historia and I've spent way too much time thinking that it's basically a higher-quality Kemco game with more of a budget and better writing. I probably shouldn't be thinking that, but it is a hand-held system RPG with the same sort of non-animated character portraits, so it's just too easy to make that comparison. And that is not ideal.
