Adventure on Mystery Island Chapter 2: Sidequest Castle

Help shape a fascinating tale of danger, intrigue, and stubborn bubbles.

Previously on… Adventure on Mystery Island
After an unfortunate plane crash and a rather fortunate encounter with the enigmatic Monolith of Multitude, you end up with sand in your shoes, a precious code for Rebel Galaxy in your pocket, and a healthy dose of curiosity in your gut. But the path towards the second Monolith goes through a rather foreboding castle…

CHAPTER 2: Sidequest Castle

You stride towards the castle, excited to meet its resident. Sure it looks like it could be the home of a man-eating dragon, a vampire lord, or -even worse- a lady that enjoys talking to her mirror. But as every adventurer knows “what doesn’t kill you, better drop some phat loot”. Your inventory is ready: bring it on, castle!

Despite its foreboding appearance, Sidequest Castle is, in fact, a place of whimsy and playfulness. Apparently, the huge purple she-dragon that lives here is a lover of role-playing: gigantic costumes are strewn about interspersed with theater props, while a number of cardboard backdrops hang from the ceiling, ready to be deployed on the castle’s main hall/stage. You’re still taking all this in when the dragon suddenly swoops down, presses her snout against your face and snorts: “So, little human, you’re here to play. But what role should I give you, mmm? That of the sneaky sneaky thief who’s come to steal my possessions? Or that of the handsome knight, here to rescue… the princess?” (*blushes*)

Time to decide, adventurers: Would you rather play THE BURGLAR or THE KNIGHT?

Help shape our story: make sure to cast your vote in our upcoming Twitter poll before Saturday 12:59 PM UTC. The winning choice will be implemented in Adventure on Mystery Island: Chapter 3, coming this Saturday to a newspost near you!

Run boy, run!

Wonder Boy: The Dragon’s Trap, a lovingly remastered version of the cult classic platformer, is now available DRM-Free on GOG.com.

Curses! Your arch-nemesis, the Meka-Dragon, has transformed you into a shape-shifting monster that keeps hopping between forms from one level to the next. Start as a boy or girl, then turn yourself into the human/animal hybrid that would best handle the challenges ahead.
But that’s not all the mix-and-matching you’ll be doing: This fully remastered version offers the option to easily switch between the HD and 8-bit graphics or sound on the fly!

DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT: My Heroes Come Together

Over the past 30 years, FINAL FANTASY has created heroes and villains dear to the hearts of many fans, myself included. With FFVII, I joined AVALANCHE alongside Cloud, Tifa, and Barret to save a decaying planet. Then years later, I dove back into the FINAL FANTASY franchise and embarked on a pilgrimage with Tidus and Yuna.
 
Cloud embodied the cool protective friend I always role modeled after while Tidus taught me to confront family no matter how hard it can be.

 
Fast forward to today, June 7th, 2017. We announced DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY New Tale.

This game will house the greatest iconic characters we remember from the past thirty years, bringing back not just their glorious armors and weapons, but the recognizable fighting styles of each individual.

I remember the vibrant red and orange cutting across my screen after each time I selected Cross Slash on a LIMIT BREAK. Hints of nostalgia consumed me as I saw this brought to life in DISSIDIA FINAL FANTASY NT.

So, who was your hero from the franchise?

Watch the announcement trailer and step back into the 30 years of our favorite characters brought together for the epic fight in a new tale!

  
The arena opens early 2018. Which warrior will you play?
