The following is a short demo of Dark Eden for the Game Boy Advance by Rival Dreams. As one of the developers, Kynan Pearson, stated, they were highly influenced by Symphony of the Night and Metroid. You journey around a castle collecting four different power ups: the run, the wall jump, the fire sword, and the super jump. It’s a short and sweet demo that can be completed in one sitting. The controls are a bit slippery, but that’s to be expected from an early demo. You may notice that the build released here differs slightly from the photos within the Time Extension article; it lacks copyright information and has more refined character art and logo. This is because those images were partly concept art featuring various elements which never made it into the game.

The project was canned when the three developers for the project couldn’t find a publisher to fund the project.
