While many fans are still waiting for the next Final Fantasy game, a group of fans has worked on their own version of a Final Fantasy VII game, remade as a 2D side-scrolling game. The title, made with Unity, lets gamers play as Cloud and Tifa in the fan-made game Final Fantasy VII: Re-Imagined.
According to the game’s site, “Final Fantasy VII: Re-Imagined is a project made by fans of the original game. We re-imagined how the game would be like if it’s an action game. Classic 2D Side-scrollers, such as Dragons and Dungeons: Chronicles of Mystara, Streets of Rage, etc, came to our minds. We thought about how we can incorporate some of the FFVII game play elements, such as Materia and summoning of Guardian Force into a Hack and Slash genre. The result is what you can see above.”
So far, one level of Final Fantasy VII: Re-Imagined is currently playable. To play, people require a browser capable of using the Unity plug-in; it doesn’t work with the latest version of Google Chrome, but it does work with Opera, Mozilla Firefox, and other compatible browsers. Players also have the option to download the executable Windows version via a torrent file.
