Remember This?

Remember This?

Remember This? Can you guess this game from one single screenshot? I’m guessing you can! If you manage to guess this game super quickly, feel free to reminisce over this classic in the comments below.


  • Wasn’t it also called Illusion of Gaia in some regions?

    As Andrew already mentioned, one of the best Snes RPGs after Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore IMO.

    • Why indeed! I actually made a squeal of excitement when I saw the screenshot. That game was a pinnacle part of my gaming upbringing, one that I replay at least once a year. I listen to the soundtrack just to remember that time of my childhood. Ahhhh sigh, such a good game.

      That being said, I love how easily he accepts the whole going through doors to random places in space and time thing. Ah yeah, door on the roof of the school I’ve never seen before… oh yeah, Gaia, that’s cool…

      • Ahhhhhh

        Illusion of Gaiea, I remember the title. I was obsessed with platformers back then. I didn’t RPG so much until PSX happened. I did play a lot of SoM and SoE though.

        Being poor I went with what I knew and only owned a few games so it was all Mario and Donkey Kong moslty in my collection.

        Link’s Awakening started my journey into RPG.

  • I loved playing through Quintet’s loosely related trilogy and seeing the evolution as they refined their gameplay and narrative design over the course of Soul Blazer, Illusion of Gaia/Time and culminating in the epic Terranigma. It’s interesting to experience them as much as an academic exercise as to appreciate their qualities as individual titles.

    It’s a shame their Actraiser series didn’t fare nearly so well.

  • Man finally one of these that i can get. This game was amazing back in the day. The sequel, TerraFirma was great also.

  • Oh man, the hours I spent on this game are insane. I spent weeks collecting every red gem so I could access that secret level at the end.

    What a game. What memories. 🙂

    • It’s Terranigma, and it was one of my favourite games of that generation. I’ll never forget the ending, I had to hold back tears.

      Manly tears…

  • For those of your into ‘Secret of Mana’ (the series) – it’s the cover story on this month’s Retro Gamer (UK) magazine.

    It’s just arrived in Aus for subscribers, so the newsagent copies will be here 2 months time.

    By the way… I noticed the other day that the current newsagent issue here is the Mario 25th anniversary one, so all you fans of Mediterranean fluid transfer experts can go nuts, with many, many pages of Mario stuff.

      • BAH! I can think of a few that he never posted! might even have a few that could stump a few peeps i reckon! I totally missed this one cos I was off working! Loved Illusion of Time though! Spent many hours playing this one! Loved it almost as much as secret of mana!

  • Sigh, why can’t they make games like this any more? I dream of a day where a company decides to spend the budget they’d otherwise spend on a massive graphic team on an awesome script and just do the whole “sprite” thing again.
