Fans Re-Imagine Final Fantasy VII As 2D Action Game, Release Playable Demo
PD Design Studio, a small indie developer with a great deal of love for Final Fantasy VII, recently imagined what Final Fantasy VII what look like as a 2D brawler, and released a playable proof-of-concept demo.
You can find the game's website here, which includes an in-browser playable version of the game's first level where you can choose to play as either Cloud or Tifa. You can also call in Barret for a special attack. On the game's website the developers wrote about the game, "We re-imagined how [Final Fantasy VII] would be like if it's an action game. Classic 2D Side-scrollers, such as Dungeons and Dragons: Chronicles of Mystara, Streets of Rage, etc, came to our minds. We thought about how we can incorporate some of the FFVII game play elements, such as Materia and summoning of Guardian Force into a Hack and Slash genre."
PD Design Studio aren't the only ones interested in remaking Final Fantasy VII. Square Enix announced a remake at E3, and you can read our thoughts about it here.
