Future of the Week: Chrono Trigger

September 30, 2009 Future No Comments

Source: This Future of the Week comes from the DS port of the SNES classic, Chrono Trigger

Premise: Chrono Trigger takes place, Wikipedia describes, “in an original world similar to Earth.” In the interest of full disclosure, I should reveal that I capitalized the “e” in Earth just before copying and pasting that text. For the purposes of this analysis, I will regard the game’s setting as a place synonymous with Earth. In the year 2300 A.D., civilization has been almost totally destroyed by a horrible creature called Lavos, who revealed himself and wrecked everything in 1999.

Utopia or Dystopia: Non-random combat encounters are an incredible thing, but then again, that’s the only thing that isn’t awful about this future. Dystopia.

Prescience: I appreciate works that depict 1999 because I lived through it, and luckily, a lot of them do. I’m glad to say that no horrible alien parasite named Lavos appeared out of the Earth in 1999, and so far, we haven’t run out of food, either.
