Chrono Trigger: Prophet's Guile

Hack of Chrono Trigger

Description:

WARNING: Right now, PG freezes SNES9x during a certain part, making the game impossible to finish. The latest version of ZSNES works.

Chrono Trigger: Prophet’s Guile is a fan game following the story of Magus’s rise to power in the Kingdom of Zeal after arriving in 12000 B.C. thanks to the distortion at his lair. In his bid to stop Lavos at the Ocean Palace, Magus must gain the trust of Queen Zeal and abolish all opposition. It’s about two regular Chrono Trigger chapters long, and full of surprises.

Work on Chrono Trigger: Prophet’s Guile began in January 2007. ZeaLitY suggested that the Crimson Echoes team, sidelined for the moment, develop a short ROM hack to be released in a couple months. Unfortunately, other matters came into play and after the backbone of the game was coded, work halted and shifted back to Crimson Echoes. In December 2007, Chrono’99 revived the project and thanks to a collaborative effort with his leadership, Prophet’s Guile now stands complete. The only casualty of the development process was a plan to re-sprite Magus as the Prophet, which would have involved exhaustive work.

Stay tuned for the upcoming hack, Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes.

UPDATE: This works fine on the latest version of SNES9X (v1.53) without issues. Chrono Trigger Crimson Echoes was C&D’d by Square-Enix and will NOT be hosted on RHDN at this time.

Short, but sweet!

Reviewed By: phantom_with_a_rose on 18 Dec 2018

This serves as an interesting midquel to the original “Chrono Trigger”, transpiring between the events of Crono and friends defeating Magus in 600 A.D. to Crono and friends arriving the Magical Kingdom of Zeal in 12000 B.C. (obviously making it a very short, but fun playthrough). It nicely explains how Magus became the hooded “Prophet” for Queen Zeal and goes into a bit more detail on his rivalry with the villainous Dalton. Without spoiling anything, I will just simply say that this is a MUST-PLAY for all CT fans! In fact, I HIGHLY recommend playing ‘Prophet’s Guile’ directly AFTER you defeat Magus in 600 A.D. (save your game first once your party wakes up in 65,000,000 B.C., of course) and once you beat it, continue playing the original CT. That way, you will be able to see how well the events from the perspectives of the characters tie-in so well together (which truly adds more to the overall experience). Kudos to Kajar Laboratories for putting together one of the greatest CT hacks of all time!
