A downloadable game for Windows

Light Fairytale is a 3D turn-based Japanese-style RPG set in a dying underground world, ruled by a fierce and powerful empire. Inspired by classics such as Final Fantasy 7 and Breath of Fire 5.

The goal of this project is to bring back the immersion and emotion of 90's era JRPGs, but with modern graphics and gameplay systems.

Coming in Q1 2018 on Windows, Mac and Linux. In English and Japanese.

A long time ago, the world was prosperous. Technology and sciences were quite advanced, and people lived in great pleasure and casual excess. However, this proved their undoing when the world, seemingly in an instant, was destroyed as they knew it forever.

Desperate and forlorn, the survivors of civilization resorted to fleeing to the only place on the planet where it was still possible to live- underground, in deep, specially made biomes. And so there they stayed, and survived.

Thousands of years later, the history of the surface has been forgotten, left to dust, and the wealth of the past lost to time. Even the very word sky has lost all meaning...

And then, a young boy named Haru wakes one day, fleeting dreams of vast green plains and a clear blue void locked in his memory; deep rooted, unshakeable...and driving him to know just what he saw.

Now, he must embark on a great adventure in order to discover the mysteries of the lost world, confronting the rulers of this dystopian society and beyond with the aid of a mysterious, silver haired girl...

With a myriad of fantastic and unique allies and incredible powers at your disposal, prepare yourself for fast, turn-based battles that occur directly in the field!

Light Fairytale will span over multiple episodes. A long journey awaits!

because i found it on gamejolt i thought i'd throw it up here. If you think about playing this do it. It's got a lot of thought put into it and i fell in love right away.

having some trouble running the game on my pc, past the opening credit is a black screen but the sound effects still pop up, any way to fix this

Sorry to hear that. Can you please tell me what are your specs? (OS / GPU / RAM / display resolution) Did you try to set the graphic settings in the main menu to the lowest? Unfortunately this demo is from a very old build so I can't update it anymore.

i'm not 100% sure what my exact specs are, the only up to date things about my computer are the operating system though lowering the graphics seemed to help

Love the demo from the very start, your art style and game flow are amazing, i think if you find a way to get the reddit or kongregate communities involved it would really boost getting it into steam, i would love even a console version of this, keep up the great work and dont give up!!

Really fell in love with this. So sorry to see it didn't get funded. I hope you're still working on it and trying to find backers because I'd really like to see this become a full game. Lots of hard work put into it and it shows. Good luck! I added it to my list in the #4 spot (not really a ranking, just the order).

Big fan of the demo and the game so far! Did a playthrough of the demo for our channel!

Hi there! I really like your game, it looks like it will be hit when completed :) It reminded me of Final Fantasy: The 4 Heroes of Light due to the graphics and music style, it brought back a lot of nostaliga. If you don''t mind, i made a gameplay demo of it. Keep up the good work :)


Thanks for the video! You should lower the quality to Medium, and also the relative resolution to 0.50x to have a better frame rate! (in the Setup submenu on the title screen).

It's okay :3 Thanks for the tip, I'll be sure to use it when the game comes out
