Ara Fell, originally released back in 2016 and it went on to receive a lot of positive reviews. Stegosoft Games went back, revamped it quite a lot and now it's out again with Ara Fell: Enhanced Edition. This new edition not only dumps RPG Maker in favour of Unity, it also adds in Linux support so you can enjoy another sweet 2D RPG.

"Ara Fell combines the best parts of Japanese-style roleplaying games with the best parts of western RPGs, as well as including elements of visual novels and adventure games to create a truly unique experience. Atmosphere, emotion and surprise lie at the forefront of Ara Fell's story, driven by deep and accessible characters, each with his or her own past, their own desires and their own motivations for joining Lita's quest. Relive the golden age of the RPG with a game that both pays homage to the past greats, as well as blazing its own trail."

This much improved version is free for anyone who owned it already, as it replaces the original. It includes a revamped battle system, new character classes and skills, new side quests, an overhauled UI, upgraded crafting system, new enchanting system, enhanced aspect ratios, new difficulty modes, an autosave feature, Twitch integration, and more. Sounds like Stegosoft really put their heart into this one.

With thanks to the friendly Linux team over on GOG, we were sent a copy and after testing it out this morning it seems to work great! Some lovely writing too, really sucks you in.

Feature Highlight:

  • EXPLORATION - Ara Fell is a world meant to be explored! Jump, crawl, swim and even fly through the air to solve puzzles and discover new locations filled with hidden treasure, secrets and adventure! Every corner of Ara Fell is designed with exploration in mind.
  • OPEN WORLD - Most of the world can be explored from the moment you leave Aloria Village, the heroine's home town... provided, of course, you're strong enough. A clever explorer may be able unlock secrets and discover powerful equipment early in the game if he or she commits to taking advantage of the open nature of the game world.
  • TACTICAL COMBAT - Ara Fell may be a story-heavy game, but the world is still fraught with danger. Choose specialized equipment and statistics, customizing each character to best suit your play style, and to best thwart each boss battle's unique mechanics.
  • CHARACTER DRIVEN - When you join Ara Fell's unwitting heroine on her quest to save her homeland, you'll discover a world filled with vibrant characters who laugh, cry, crack jokes, lose their tempers, and even their will to go on as the size and scope of the curse that plagues Ara Fell becomes apparent. Friends and villains alike are not who they seem as the stakes grow ever higher...

You can pick up Ara Fell: Enhanced Edition on GOG.com, Humble Store and Steam.

They changed the whole game engine after the game was released??? That must have been a hell of a job...

I remember enjoying the game a lot. Feels like it has been forever since I played it though... I guess 4 years IS a long time?

I guess my daughter would love that game! Thanks for reporting about it, I have never heard of it before!

And yes, I don't even want to know how much work it was to replace the engine of a -finished- game. I have never heard of this being done before. oO

This actually kinda sucks. The old version works on EasyRPG, so I hope everyone backed up their games.

Me too. I'm currently playing Divinity: Original Sin 2, and if I'm in the mood for more RPG afterwards that might be a good candidate. Watched a bit of gameplay, and it looks quite lovely indeed!
