Necra Update Page

Thank you for taking an interest in Necra. Necra is a fantasy JRPG inspired by old-school games like Final Fantasy, Suikoden, Trials of Mana and a few others. You can find the newest version of Necra down below. This game will likely always be free, though if you'd like you can donate to help me get new resources for the game, keep the website alive and/or just say thanks for making it. If you donate $1 or more and email me with the email you donated from, I will email you back a code you can use in the game to unlock special outfits for all the characters that are currently exclusively for donators and playtesters. You will be able to earn them free in the game after beating the game. Donators and playtesters get a code to start with them! If you have any questions, comments or want to contact me about the special outfits, you can do so at

Four friends accidentally release a powerful creature and need to find a way to seal it away again before it destroys the world. Along the way, they'll find new allies, enemies and secrets. Explore the deepest parts of Necra and find magic, loot and dangerous dungeons. You'll need all the help you can get to survive the challenges to come. Help your adventurers become heroes, gather an army and save the world from it's grim fate. The future of Necra rests in your hands.

  • Earn multiple unlockable characters, each with their own class and bonuses.
  • Enjoy almost no waiting to keep the battle action going with Necra's fast turn-based battle system.
  • Customize your weapons and armors with enchanting.
  • Make your party your own with every party member being renamable when you unlock them.
  • Visit dark dungeons that have an immersive lighting system and effects.
  • See the world map with a "Mode 7" style, making the world feel much bigger.
  • Change the window skin to make the game look how you want it to.
  • Play the way you want with remappable keys and controller support.

Please note that this game is still in early access and developed entirely by one person in their (non-existant) spare time. Bugs, typos and other oddities may exist. All content contained in this and future versions are subject to change. Necra is an adventure that is already several hours long. I have plans to make the story much longer with new quests and much, much more to explore. If you wish to help support the game's development, please feel free to reach out to me at with anything that could be corrected in the next version release. Please note that a set release date for Necra will never be given, nor can I promise the game will ever be fully finished (mostly due to me continuing to find things to add to it). I've had great support from my husband and friends and I thank all of you for helping me over the serveral years I've been making this game. I couldn't do it without all of you. Even the people who just take an interest and give me feedback have been wonderful. Making this game has been an adventure in of itself, so thank you everyone. I hope you enjoy the game and the future releases of it.

Although the game will run on mobile by playing the online version, it's not optimized for phones like it is for computers. Even on a high-speed internet, you may experience lag on mobile devices. Optimization for mobile devices is not planned.

For certain overlays to work with Necra, such as steam, add "--in-process-gpu" without the quotes to launch options or create a shortcut to the game and add it after the link to the game in the shortcut properties.

A fresh install is always recommended while the game is in development. Your save files (if you want to keep them) are located in the save folder of Necra, which is in the www folder for most versions of the game. I can NOT promise save files will work from version to version. It all depends on what is changed during development. Game stability with old saves is not guaranteed.

Upcoming Changes

  • Added pirate ships to the world map that will chase the player if they get close.
  • Added a few points of interest in the ocean.
