Operation Backlog Completion 2024

After being in Early Access since late 2018, the upcoming turn-based JRPG Edge of Eternity is now moving into its beta phase.

I played Edge of Eternity’s pre-alpha demo way back in 2015. I enjoyed some aspects of the demo, but it wasn’t enough to convince me to back the Kickstarter campaign.

Much more recently, I previewed the new “Chapter 0” prologue added to Edge of Eternity for MonsterVine. It’s changed significantly since that early demo and doesn’t feel quite as much like a traditional JRPG as it did before, but the introduction to the story and characters left me pretty intrigued by playing the eventual final version.

According to the official beta announcement, the beta update includes a reworked battle camera, reworked cutscenes, a new crafting system, dynamic events, and other additions and improvements.

It’s also on sale right now until August 21, after which point its price will increase.

I’m still not crazy about it being open world (update: it sounds as though areas are unlocked through story progress, which makes me happier), but I’m interested in seeing how Edge of Eternity turns out and it’s nice to see its development progressing into the next major stage after all this time since we first saw that Kickstarter. What do you think of Edge of Eternity?
