For our June Community Playthrough, we will be playing the often overlooked hidden gem for the Super NES, Illusion of Gaia! This title (known in PAL regions as Illusion of Time) is an action RPG whose gameplay can most likely be compared to such other SNES classics as Secret of Mana and Secret of Evermore, and has also drawn comparisons to the classic Legend of Zelda games. However, this game features a unique leveling system that eschews experience points in favor of a permanent stat bonus every time you clear an area of enemies.
In Illusion of Gaia, you play as Will, a young boy from a small seaside town. He accompanies his father on an expedition to uncover the secrets of the Tower of Babel, but the explorers instead met with a mysterious disaster. Will, the only known survivor of this expedition, manages to make it back to his hometown, although he does not remember how. Now, a year later, a mysterious being known as Gaia tells him that he must leave his home to save the world from a coming evil. Perhaps you may also finally discover the truth behind the ill-fated expedition along the way?
Illusion of Gaia will take you on an epic journey across many real-world, historical locations, including ancient Incan ruins and the Great Wall of China. Armed with only a flute, you will have to defeat many enemies and epic bosses, solve puzzles, and harness the powers that Will gains along the way. Will you be able to save the world from its impending doom? Join us this June for what will be a playthrough of epic proportions and give it a shot!
