I wrote this post up as fast as I could. In fact, I haven't even had the chance to try these games out yet. That's because by the time you read this, they may be gone. Square-Enix is notoriously ruthless about taking down fan games, so get on this while you still can.
There are two games in question here, the previously squashed Chrono Trigger: Crimson Echoes and the newer, weirder Chrono Trigger: Flames of Eternity. After a few minutes of research, I'm getting that Flames of Eternity is based off of Crimson Echoes, and that the writing in both games can be a bit... off putting. Talking Chrono is particularly annoying to some fans, but hey, this semi-new, 100% free Chrono Trigger we're talking about! Only the most depressing amongst us will complain about that.
