I think people don't seem to understand final fantasy, I've played about 4 of them and it is tradition for a Final Fantasy game to have absolutley nothing to do with the previous title, Every new final fantasy is a completley new story! So people should stop with the "change the title", its a good title, and if he wants to keep it he can keep it! Anyways, great game, hope it really isn't dead!
That is true: Many of the Final Fantasies have nothing in common in regards to the storyline
. What makes Final Fantasy a tademark franchise in games is the setting and the reoccurring themes that you will find exclusively in Final Fantasy. This game has many Final Fantasy elements in it, yet the game has nothing to do with Final Fantasy. Whut?
In a screenshot of techniques, there are moves named after highly prominent Final Fantasy summons. In the last screenshot, there is a black mage sprite. Shoot, there is even a picture of a moogle in another screenshot!
What I am saying is, if you don't want people to affiliate your game with Final Fantasy, keep Final Fantasy elements out of it. People won't assume it is a Final Fantasy-esque game if it doesn't contain many of the representations that go along with FF. Not that many people still wouldn't play it, but if you were to look at the screenshots before reading anything, you would definitely think it was another Final Fantasy set fan-game.
