Hello everyone! In this RPG Maker Let’s Play, we slip into the world of Chaos Dream Retribution by SimProse Studios. This is our fifth (or is it sixth?) SimProse Game.

There is a lot to enjoy here: An engaging story, elegant writing, fully voice-acted content, and an interesting enemy-on-map mechanic that we haven’t seen in one of SimProse’s games before. The mapping and graphical look (sans the characters) is refreshingly different from his previous games.

However, there are a lot of similarities between this and other Simprose Studio titles: On map rabbit-holes, item durability, difficulty skewed against the new player, combat balancing that needs work, and (unfortunately) characters and enemies missing all the time. Have four misses in a row? Gotta be a Simprose game!

There are some story and character elements that need work too, but you’ll have to watch the video to get the proper context of that.

Overall, this is not a bad game at all, and if you like the Ultima 7 or Dragon Quest like experiences that Simprose offers, you’ll like this game. However, after so many similar games… is it time for something different by this developer?
