Owlboy creator Simon S. Andersen likes to make video game sequel mockups for fun on his spare time, and the latest one is of Chrono Break, Square’s cancelled Chrono series game that never saw light of day.
You can check out the fan-made trailer along with a message from Simon Andersen below:
I’ve been making mockups for hypothetical game sequels for fun for many years. Generally all of them are still images where try to capture what made people connect to the original games and see where else I could take the concept, while still being recognizable.
After finishing a massive game project spanning a decade of development, I was ready to tackle a new series. I had already known for years I wanted to explore a hypothetical sequel to Chrono Trigger, Cross and Radical Dreamers, but it took me a full year until I figured out how I wanted it to look.
This has been my most ambitious spare time mockup so far, spanning about two months worth of work and featuring music by Jonathan Geer. If the sequel that was planned years ago was revived, this is likely how I would do it.
This video is not endorsed or licensed by SQUARE ENIX CO., LTD and is not a game under development. This is made only for fun.
Square first registered a trademark for Chrono Break back in 2001, but unfortunately, they ended up dropping the trademark after cancelling the RPG. Chrono Trigger director Takashi Tokita previously talked about Chrono Break where he revealed that the overall idea and character setting of the cancelled game were reworked into his latest game, Final Fantasy Dimensions II for iOS and Android.
