Episode: SOUL - Here's The Latest
Never Give Up On Your Dreams!
Description
True Geek Radio - "...Sanctum Polis: Rest Eternal Memory, an indie darling to grab the heartstrings of old school JRPG fans."

Sanctum Polis – Rest Eternal Memory is a 32-bit Role Playing Game where the main character Caxton finds himself thrown into Solaris Notre University. Founded as a religious reform school, SNU takes in wayward youths from across Diurne in order to reforge them into the service of Solaris the Sun Godess as clergy.

The university exists in two refurbished castles, one housing the male students, the other the female. Here, Caxton joins a group of students trying to escape, Silent Uproar. It is here that Caxton finds he has the ability to invade dreams, which leads to the discovery of secrets hidden deep within the school.

Sanctum Polis takes influence from old school rpg’s such as: Persona, Suikoden, and Final Fantasy. We even took some psychological, survival horror elements from games such as Silent Hill. Many of these elements come into play as Caxton investigates with the world around him. As he interacts with other characters, dialogue options will require the player to choose how they want Caxton to be. Seemingly innocent at times, these discussion will ultimately have an impact on how the storyline plays out.

Gameplay

We're best described as a menu based RPG with a semi active battle system.

The game is split into day and nighttime activities. During the day, the player can choose from options such as: attending class, going to an extracurricular, and conversing with students. Yet at night, Caxton can choose to enter the dreamworld.

The dreamworld is where many of the fantasy style elements come into play. For instance, the game uses a turn based party battle system that includes the use of magic unique to the dreamworld or physical attacks. It is here that much of the truth comes out as you play.

The choices the player makes throughout the game will alter storyline, leading to increases in difficulty, optional quests being revealed, and finally one of the possible endings. All of this depends on what you choose Caxton to become.

Here is our presentation earlier this year at SuperCon 2014 that showcases an early trailer of the game and answers some questions you may have.

Visuals do not represent the final game. This is still a work in progress and we're asking for Kickstarter backing to code the game in Unity and improve the visuals.
Will work on Windows XP and Windows 8
Mac & Linux Operating System versions are dependent on Kickstarter
Requires at least 1 GB of RAM.

However, I have a feeling it will rise from the ashes when the sun rises. And will show us something promising in the future. At least going to their website at www.sanctumpolis.com they can tell you what's going on. They're still alive. And they're still going strong. So don't give up yet.

Sadly, the dream is dead. All has fallen back into the darkness on bad times for everyone. Especially in the year of 2016.
At least they tried.

I heard they plan to restart the kickstarter on a later date after they release a demo of the game while it's still in the making. Idk either this year or next year. So I can't remember the details. I suddgest looking at their website and other internet sources if you wanna still support them.
