Symposium: Final Fantasy 4: Free Enterprise, July 2, 2020

This month, Pat is leading a discussion on the mod Final Fantasy 4: Free Enterprise. Quoting Pat:

When RPG designers first began to work in the digital medium, it quickly became clear that a truly faithful translation of the tabletop experience was impossible. As such, those designers developed new artistic strategies for making digital RPGs possible at all. Roguelikes and JRPGs were two very different sub-genres representing two very different artistic decisions. And yet, in FF4:Free Enterprise Edition, we are faced with a game that tries to recombine these distantly related sub-genres into one experience. We will focus on how this is possible, and which parts of each experience are able to survive hybridization.

Talk to you Thursday, 8:30pm EDT / 5:30pm PDT!
