A downloadable game for Windows, macOS, and Linux

Alterium Shift is a SNES JRPG inspired indie game developed by two friends (Mottzy and Drass_Ray) who want to share their love for games like Chrono Trigger and FFVI through their own games. In this game you will experience a story rich, living world, where choices and interactions matter! 

Journey with three heroes in training; Pyra, Atlas, and Sage. Their teacher, the war hero Dolion, strives to mold his students into heroes, ones better than himself. You start the game with the three heroes taking their final test before being sent off on an important and life changing mission. What fate awaits these heroes and can they accomplish the tasks set forth before them?

Alterium Shift has a full featured turn-based combat system with a turn-order display for important decision making! Exploit enemy weaknesses and gain experience to grow your party into an unstoppable force! Of course, the loot you earn will also help you a long your journey as well.

Explore the world of Alteria. Meet new and diverse people. Find loot and hidden treasure! Take on new quests. The decision is yours and every decision is important!

Any chance of this coming out on non-Steam storefronts? I'd really love to play this on PC, but I'd rather my money go elsewhere. The game looks really good!

Thank you for asking! We're looking into other options a.k.a GOG and EPIC, but nothing confirmed just yet. We'll be sure to provide links to those options if / when they become ready.


Grandia & SNES vibes. Can't wait to play. <3

Thanks codapill! We'll be coming out with a new demo towards the end of september that will be very different from the current experience! :)

mate, if you are hiring spriters, I belive we can do some amazing things together, cheers!

What assets were used? I see some mana seed stuff...was curious what the buildings were from or if they are commission/origina


that 3d aspect looks super neat! a really cool way to change things up. 


This looks great! Definitely nailed that late snes squaresoft style.


Thank you very much! :)


looking good

Thank you so much! :D

Will the full game come to Itch?

That it is the plan. We want to provide as many options as possible :)


I just finished the demo and it was awesome, beautiful maps and amazing sprites. The little amount of experienced offered by the boss was weird but it didn't matter that much after I saw that's the last battle of the demo.

I loved it!


Thank you SO much for playing the demo. Your kind words are greatly appreciated and we couldn't be happier that people are getting this much enjoyment out of our game. 


Absolutely loved the demo, keep it up DrattzyGames! Here is my playthrough as Pyra:


Thanks so much for the playthrough, baz! We're very happy you loved it! 


This is really cool, I can't wait until it comes out, it gives me strong Octopath Traveller vibes, I love it! Keep up the great work! You're all incredible!

Thank you so much. We're humbled by the comparison, Octopath Traveller is a great game.


A recreation of classic JRPG gaming nostalgia.  Very much looking forward to this.


Thank you very much, Angel Star Studios! We can't wait for you all to be able to play it! :D
