Welcome to the .html instruction manual for Kefka's Revenge, this currently only covers the first released demo so let me get right into it.
Kefka's Revenge, it's makers, anything about it, are in no way affiliated with Square Soft. All Characters, Graphics, Story Elements, Music, or anything else that Square Soft did is totally theirs, we take none of that credit, however we do take credit for the things we did. Before you play this game we assume that you have already played FF6 and you will not bother us for some stupid reason like "That was from FF6" Then we reserve the right to call you an 'Idiot' and start a petition to keep you off the internet, Thank you.
Not long ago, the struggling
battle of the Returners
redeemed the world to a
sophisticated, industrial paradise.
A few years have passed... wealth,
freedom, and justice have
been rediscovered, and
high supremacy reigns...
But there is one who
would enslave the world by
recovering their stolen virtue
known as "dignity."
Can it be that those
seeking vengeance are on the
verge of repeating a
senseless and deadly mistake?

In the year 1996 AD, A video game was released that would completely revolutionize the RPG industry, Final Fantasy 6, This game was one of the greatest games ever, The ones who made this game, Squaresoft, Followed up to this game, with wonderful titles such as Final Fantasy 7, Final Fantasy Tactics, Chrono Trigger, and more, Then all of the sudden, the wonder stopped, but that's a story for another day, Back to Final Fantasy 6. In this game, There was a villain, his name was Kefka. Kefka quickly captured the hearts of the American Public, appearing on Cereal Boxes and Saturday Morning Cartoons everywhere. Kefka truly showed us why clowns are scary. He was one of the most captivating people in the history of the word, So Wiz had an Idea. An Idea that would make Kefka a beloved pop culture icon once again!
The idea of Kefka's Revenge was conceived by Wiz, Somwhere in the summer of 2001, The Exact date is unkown. Wiz didn't look at this as his most serious project, nor did he thing it would generate much interest, but that was about to change. When the idea of KR was posted on the Message Board of the now defunct Dragonsoft, people were amazed. This quickly grew into an unorganized bundle of ideas, Every member of the small community seemed to love this game. However after only very little work on the actual game Dragonsoft went under, along with all of it's projects, even KR. Months later in April 2002 Wiz came across Sphere, Sphere is the Development Engine you are playing KR on, You Probably knew this though, right? Days after Wiz found Sphere he asked Tree to check it out, the two decided to revive KR, The first real progress was made days later. KR has been coming along steadily, Throughout the process of working on KR, Wiz and Tree have grown stronger in their prospective crafts. Now in December of 2002, The KR Demo is ready, and it is good.
However, Remember... This is only the very beginning. Much more work has been done then you see here. Currently as of December 2002, Much of the work needed to progress in the game is finished, Story is planned out well ahead, What you see here must be 1/1000 of what the final product will be.
Controls: Arrow Keys - Walk Enter - Talk/Execute ???? - Menu F1 - Laugh (you have unlimited laughs) F13 - Dance Esc - Exit Menu (might change)

Q: The Sphere engine won't open.. it says something about the resolution?
A: This is simply because your computer can not show that low of a resolution, so what you have to do is double click config.exe in the sphere folder, and try setting it to interpolate32.dll, or which ever one works. Try making it not full screen, that usually helps. (8 bit color is not recommended)
Q: KR stops, or freezes or errors and point x!
A: Let us know.
Q: KR is really slow.
A: This means that your getting a bad fps, the reason for this is often an awfully old computer or a bad gfx card.
Q: Can I make it full screen?
A: Yes you can, just double click on config.exe, There's a bunch of options there.
Q: It doesn't work at all!
A: Make sure your SNES is plugged in properly. If it is and you still have trouble, Contact Wiz and or Tree
