About this game
Content Rating: Teen
After awaking alone in the woods, Alex, who was supposed to be on his way home from school, begins to consider the possibility he may have been abducted. As he tries to sort things out while making his way back to civilization, he runs into a spunky girl by the name of Toril, who to his surprise, informs him he is no longer in his own world. Fresh out of ideas how to deal with his predicament, Alex decides to join this lively stranger, and while fighting through monsters in the same woods, chances upon a young woman named Lita who appears to be from a world similar to his own. Hitting it off, the two quickly become friends as they try to come to grips with their new life not far from the ever-present threat of the Overlord and his minions while experiencing occasional flashbacks that seem to clash with the memories of their own pasts. And with each peal of the village bell signaling the arrival of another outworlder, Alex and party slowly find themselves inching closer and closer toward the hidden truth in Fernland...

The music and sound effects for the game are great as well. The music for down time, battles, and general exploring always match the tone and overall atmosphere of what’s currently going on in the game. Fernz Gate is a fun RPG. While there’s a lot to learn with the mechanics, I think this is a game anyone can pick, play, and enjoy.
While its core systems don’t rewrite the rules of the genre, Fernz Gate’s wholesome RPG mechanics will whisk you back to a 16-bit era where plucky little sprites and enchanting chiptunes were the order of the day. While it’s been launched a little too close to Octopath Traveler, don’t let its poor timing rob you of its enjoyable wares. If you’re looking for an RPG built to make grinding actively more enjoyable, this could be the next retro-style adventure for you.
Sadly, like its predecessors, it gets let down by a general mediocre, generic, and soulless visual presentation. Looking beyond this hurdle, however, what remains is a thoroughly enjoyable homage to 16-bit JRPGs that won't overstay its welcome, and which, for its price, proves fairly acceptable - and suitable for short bursts of play on the go. Here's hoping Exe-Create dares to try more grandiloquent things, and craft something way more memorable, because there is clearly potential.
