Overview
Skyward Fantasy is a hybrid role-playing game where choices you make affect the world around you. Set out for distant horizons as you discover the secrets behind the war of origins and battle fearsome monsters in turn based combat. Customize your characters beyond level 100 and rebuild a shattered world. Loot thousands of items and learn hundreds of abilities as you travel Ethiryon. Uncover the Tower of Truth in the post-game for hours of additional content.

The tides of evil flowed through Ethiryon, and sorrow spread like a plague among humans. Far upon the forgotten skies, the Skyward Gates were breached, unleashing the darkness within. Eleven years later, eight Magus Lords created the Hallowed Divinity; the spell that banished Aemohriel back into the depths of the Aetherworld. Pieces of remaining worlds were kept afloat by the Dim Unity, the archaic relic of Vaelyon.



Ethirians forged magic artifacts protecting humankind from roaming rifts and bloodshed. Two decades have passed since the war of origins, the darkness still peering through the gates, waiting to be found. Embark on a grand journey to become a notorious Magus and put an end to an ever-lasting war.

I've been wanting to create role-playing adventures ever since I can remember. My love for story-telling and arts compelled me to play all sort of games to escape most of my life. I've spent years learning and using softwares, what was a hobby grew into a passion. I am creating Skyward Fantasy with RPG Maker MV and JavaScript for nearly two years now. With the support of a friend and the community we pushed the limits of the engine, making this game a possibility!

I've been working very hard on Skyward Fantasy, actively developing the game while I work a full time job. I never miss a day of progress and I am highly determined to releasing this game. It is my gateway into indie game making and it's a dream I am devoted to making come true. I want Skyward Fantasy to become an experience rather than a distraction. There is more to what I would love to accomplish with the final state of the game and we need your help!

The funds will be used for:

  • Improved battler graphics, more enemies and visual weapons.
  • Original soundtrack by Toshi Clinch and Drew Zaremba.
  • High-definition illustrations for cut-scenes and events.
  • More character faces and expressions.
  • English Major for localization.
  • Codes and polish.

The risks and challenges I face during this project are not many. The funds we raise will improve it beyond what I imagined the game to be, I am hoping to make it the most fun and polished possible. I've put thousands of hours into this project, every single day and weekend. I have already completed a generous amount of content. The biggest challenge might be the Tower of Truth and the online features, involving dynamic quests that will be shaped by the players' decisions (the entire registered player base!). All online features will be OPTIONAL, this game is bought once and can be played while you are offline, no cash shop. This is part of the stretch goals and if accomplished, I am excited to keep the adventure exciting to the best of my abilities!

Thank you for all the support you provide and your interest in Skyward Fantasy.
