  • Summary: "Long, long ago, the elven sorcerers cast a spell to save the floating world of Ara Fell from destruction. Instead, they doomed it to fall from the sky. By chance, the fate of the world has been placed in the hands of a young woman. Join her as she and her friends endeavor against all odds"Long, long ago, the elven sorcerers cast a spell to save the floating world of Ara Fell from destruction. Instead, they doomed it to fall from the sky. By chance, the fate of the world has been placed in the hands of a young woman. Join her as she and her friends endeavor against all odds to save their homeland, all while the clock ticks ever nearer the final hour..."

    Ara Fell combines the best parts of Japanese-style roleplaying games with the best parts of western RPGs, as well as including elements of visual novels and adventure games to create a truly unique experience. Atmosphere, emotion and surprise lie at the forefront of Ara Fell's story, driven by deep and accessible characters, each with his or her own past, their own desires and their own motivations for joining Lita's quest. Relive the golden age of the RPG with a game that both pays homage to the past greats, as well as blazing its own trail.

    - EXPLORATION - Ara Fell is a world meant to be explored! Jump, crawl, swim and even fly through the air to solve puzzles and discover new locations filled with hidden treasure, secrets and adventure! Every corner of Ara Fell is designed with exploration in mind.

    - OPEN WORLD - Most of the world can be explored from the moment you leave Aloria Village, the heroine's home town... provided, of course, you're strong enough. A clever explorer may be able unlock secrets and discover powerful equipment early in the game if he or she commits to taking advantage of the open nature of the game world.

    - TACTICAL COMBAT - Ara Fell may be a story-heavy game, but the world is still fraught with danger. Choose specialized equipment and statistics, customizing each character to best suit your play style, and to best thwart each boss battle's unique mechanics.

    - CHARACTER DRIVEN - When you join Ara Fell's unwitting heroine on her quest to save her homeland, you'll discover a world filled with vibrant characters who laugh, cry, crack jokes, lose their tempers, and even their will to go on as the size and scope of the curse that plagues Ara Fell becomes apparent. Friends and villains alike are not who they seem as the stakes grow ever higher...

    Ara Fell is a solid example of what RPGMaker games can be, and while it never wows it's certainly a lot of fun.

    Ara Fell is like a fairy tale. Its lovely settings and charismatic characters will catch the player following the main quest, or just facing the bosses with uncommon strategy. And it's really too bad that all of this nice work matches with a poor attention to detail, like troublesome bug, which ruins the entire experience.

    This is the only RPGMaker game I've ever finished playing. Excellent atmosphere, character banter between party members, and world building.This is the only RPGMaker game I've ever finished playing.

    Ara Fell is a cute romp through floating islands as Lita Lecotta, who sounds like a brand of house plant pots but is actually a short,Ara Fell is a cute romp through floating islands as Lita Lecotta, who sounds like a brand of house plant pots but is actually a short, vampire-slaying dumbass. If you've always wanted Buffy but with jRPG stylings and sorceresses, this is the game for you.

    Best bits:
    +Amusing characters, especially the protagonist
    +Lots of exploration, without mindless empty zones
    +Story can be enjoyed as fast or slow as you like due to how it's paced

    Meh bits:
    -Hard to play with a controller
    -Stat gains on leveling doesn't really feel free-form despite appearances
    -Limited customization options due to the engine

    What do you get when you combine the snark and inter-character dialogue of Buffy The Vampire Slayer with a gorgeous fantasy world in the sky?What do you get when you combine the snark and inter-character dialogue of Buffy The Vampire Slayer with a gorgeous fantasy world in the sky?
