Chrono Trigger ~ Game of the Month Club at Babycastles

January 30, 2017 at 8:00 PM @ Babycastles Gallery

Lets replay this classic and talk about how it changed gaming.
Lecture/Talk

The result of a so-called "Dream Team" collaboration between artist Akira Toriyama (Dragon Ball) and game designers Hironobu Sakaguchi (Final Fantasy) and Yuji Horii (Dragon Quest), Square's Chrono Trigger (1995) is widely considered to be a pinnacle of 16-bit gaming; a forward-thinking masterclass in JPRG design; a tightly scripted roller coaster ride through time and space that's as heartfelt and soulful as pop entertainment gets. It's going to be too cold to go outside for the next few weeks, so this winter break let's all pour ourselves a nice hot cup of cocoa, get the fire going, plop down in front of our Super Nintendos, and use our courage and our wits to save the far-off distant future of 1999AD. And then, on January 30th, let's meet up at Babycastles and talk all about it. Hope to see you there!
