Chrono Trigger: Prophet's Guile

Hack of Chrono Trigger

Description:

WARNING: Right now, PG freezes SNES9x during a certain part, making the game impossible to finish. The latest version of ZSNES works.

Chrono Trigger: Prophet’s Guile is a fan game following the story of Magus’s rise to power in the Kingdom of Zeal after arriving in 12000 B.C. thanks to the distortion at his lair. In his bid to stop Lavos at the Ocean Palace, Magus must gain the trust of Queen Zeal and abolish all opposition. It’s about two regular Chrono Trigger chapters long, and full of surprises.

Work on Chrono Trigger: Prophet’s Guile began in January 2007. ZeaLitY suggested that the Crimson Echoes team, sidelined for the moment, develop a short ROM hack to be released in a couple months. Unfortunately, other matters came into play and after the backbone of the game was coded, work halted and shifted back to Crimson Echoes. In December 2007, Chrono’99 revived the project and thanks to a collaborative effort with his leadership, Prophet’s Guile now stands complete. The only casualty of the development process was a plan to re-sprite Magus as the Prophet, which would have involved exhaustive work.

Stay tuned for the upcoming hack, Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes.

UPDATE: This works fine on the latest version of SNES9X (v1.53) without issues. Chrono Trigger Crimson Echoes was C&D’d by Square-Enix and will NOT be hosted on RHDN at this time.

Absolutely Great!

Reviewed By: justin3009 on 19 Nov 2013

First off, I definitely recommend this hack. Why?

The characterization, dialogue, progression, etc.. fits exactly with how Chrono Trigger originally was. The dialogue is my big kicker on this. Magus was their ‘best’ writing examples throughout any kind of Chrono Trigger hacking and it really shines here!

If you want to see a brief history of what Magus dealt with during Zeal when he was thrown there, by all means play this. It will do justice.

The ‘only’ thing I do have to complain about is the game’s insane difficulty. It’s overall not TOO horrific, but not having the ability to buy items while getting slammed, running out of MP and only being able to gain items is mainly through battles really knocks you off your rocker a bit.

Be warned, save often and strategize as much as possible but be prepared for one hell of a well done hack.
