Update By: mrrichard999

Here to announce our last project for the summer! We put a lot of hard work into this project and now bring it to all to enjoy! It's a great RPG game for those who can appreciate a non-linear game. Also in this project we had upgraded the graphics from its later sequels, added ALT key options for more options of movement, used improved graphics, and also included an options sounds folder for those who prefer them! If you enjoy this game, be sure to check out the Lunatic Dawn - Passage of the Book project also available for download on this site!

Book of Futures doesn't have the Steam version but the Passage of the Book and Legend Pack has it.

o.O hmmm...can't say i've heard of this game (blah, isometric camera angle in that 2nd screenshot. >.< not a fan of that angle but...i can manage.). i wonder how old it is.

1995...better question then: does it run on windows 7?

It definitely works on Windows 7 64 bit.  I also did get it to run on Windows 10 but that was without running Applocale or a program similiar to it as a preloader.

Is there an LGBT-friendly version of this hack?  :)

No no no. (It's OOT) :police:

This will be the beginning of all Lunatic Dawn games to be playable in English, great work mrrichard!
I wish some of the Lunatic Dawn games are translated, including Tempest.
By the way, will there be a translation patch for the CD version of the Passage of the Book, aside from the Steam release?

Thanks! You will have to ask the lead on Passages of the Book about that one, I don't have anything to do with the project but I believe he is only doing the Steam version as it has all the updates included. He is also currently working on 3rd book at the moment too figuring out the compression of the text. You can see the status of it on the Steam link posted under the Passages of the Book entry on this site.

Aside from this one being easy to work with, what really gets me upset is the damn compression on the first two original titles as I really want to complete them and they are close to being done but there is a small amount of untranslated text that's untouchable at the moment.. I wish I could get help on that with those 2 games... Its a shame to see them unfinished and stuck at that point.

So this won't work with the Steam version legend pack? A shame. Good thing I'm learning Japanese I guess...another small motivation boost I suppose.

This game is not on Steam at all. This is a prequel to Lunatic Dawn - Passages of the Book. The only ones on Steam are Lunatic Dawn 1,2,3 (Legend Pack), & Passages of the Book right now.
