  • A complete 40+ hour adventure spanning the rich and expansive world of Erythia.
  • Unique, strategy focused combat. Simply mashing Attack over and over in battle will cost you dearly. Instead, take advantage of each characters' strengths and enemy weaknesses to gain the upper hand in combat.
  • Exploit the Elemental Remnants system to combine character skills into more powerful attacks!
  • And introducing Challenge Mode. Standard battle strategy not cutting it for you? Need that extra challenge? In Challenge Mode, you can return to previously beaten areas and activate the Challenge Cryst, resetting the dungeon and imposing various challenging limitations; such asSkill Block, Magic Block, Item Block, Level Restriction, and much more!
  • Divergent story based on important decisions you make during gameplay. Having your decisions matter is a core part of the RPG experience, and we plan to bring this to Erythia: Shattered Dreams.
  • Professionally voice acted cut-scenes, battle dialogue, and important events.
  • Original soundtrack composed exclusively for Erythia: Shattered Dreams.
  • Carefully crafted character art by our character artist, Flora Li, of Shadilyn's Realm.
  • Carefully crafted character sprites by Despain, of Final Boss Blues fame.

Erythia: Shattered Dreams is the culmination of decades of our love of RPGs and our collective desire to create and share a world that our fellow gamers can fall in love with and immerse themselves in. Our staff is composed of RPG gamers of all ages, encompassing all eras of RPGs. We've witnessed the rise and fall of the classical RPG, and we will not rest until we see it rise again.

From the donations we receive from our Kickstarter backers, Flora Li will be able to provide more of her awesome talent to designing the characters and fantasy apparel of Erythia: Shattered Dreams, Despain will be able to focus on creating highly detailed sprites exclusive to Erythia Studios. Our in house composer will be able to churn out more high-quality musical scores to soothe and excite your ear drums.

Development began on Erythia: Shattered Dreams on February 22nd, 20120. Since development began, we have finished character designs for 3 of our main cast, character sprites for 2, and completely finished designing the Erythia's unique battle system. We are currently in the process of designing and detailing the many, many environments of the world of Erythia, each painstakingly hand crafted.  

The story that fuels the narrative of Erythia: Shattered Dreams has been in existence for a little over a year now. It is a story of discovery, a story of brotherhood, of friendship, of betrayal, of love, and a story of acceptance. The choices you make throughout the story will affect how your party members think about you, who your potential allies will be, as well as your enemies. When there is no right or wrong, but merely different shades of gray, your decisions determine the outcome. Some decisions will weigh much heavier than others....
