My first CT fanart! I've loved this game ever since it came out and tragically I never saw fit to do any fanart. This is part of a 4 pager for Chrono Party, a fanzine. It's about Lucca's sidequest to go back in time for her mom and how it affected me personally. We'll see if my entry gets accepted.

Oh wow, this is terrific. One of my favorite scenes!

Same, same! I think my older brother had to clue me in on what to do. Haha!

The only real hint was the "ZABIE" code, and that would have been hours if not days ago by then...

Oooh, this sounds neat!  And looks lovely. :3  I've always loved Chrono Trigger. :D  The link below didn't work for me... (it triggered my Chrome security, for some reason.  I have no idea.)  Will you be putting the comic up here, too?

Oh, I'm sorry! See if this link will work, its for a comic collective called Blank Party and they're the ones doing the CT zine: blankparty.club

Yes, will definitely share the full comic up here once I get the green light to do so.

Don't worry, it's not your problem!  I still keep getting the same error message :/ (something with my connection settings, maybe), so I'll just wait here to see your full comic. :3  Looking forward to seeing it. :D

You capture that pensive scene well; it's a sidequest but an emotionally moving one. I think it's creative how Chrono Trigger incorporates the SNES button names into the QTE at the end of this side-quest with Lucca's mother's name. (I'm normally not a QTE fan but in small doses I'm ok with them.)

Oh man, those quick time events stress me out so bad. I didn't "win" this sidequest first time I played it and it was upsetting. I guess that's the mark of a good story if it can get you emotionally involved in it.

Oh, this is cool. Lucca has always been hands-down my favorite CT character, and so much about her resonated with me, including her backstory and opportunity to change her personal history. Be sure to let us know where we can find the final comic, because I will read the crap out of that. :)

Thanks! Ayla was my favorite... or was it Frog? I liked them all honestly. But Lucca's backstory punched me right in the heart. 

You can learn more about the CT fanzine here at the Blank Party tumblr. Actually they just extended the deadline to August 5, so there's still time to submit short comics and illustrations if you're up to it! Link: blankparty.club/post/160013059…
