Uhm actually the game series can be found in the download section of the site here (or at the top of page in the navbar): http://www.omnimaga.org/index.php?action=downloads;cat=29

Illusiat is a serie of TI-83+ RPGs that were released from Sept 2001 to January 2002 and from June 2002 to December 2002. There are 12 games in total in the current ones released, plus 2 remakes of Illusiat 1, another version of Illusiat 6 released as Nemesiat, an harder version of Illusiat 11 and 1 remake of Illusiat 2, 3 and 4. However, like most of the Final Fantasy series, none of the game are direct sequels to each others. The second batch of RPGs that were made in 2002 sets the standard in the series, though, by using home screen graphics for maps, battles and most events. Illusiat 13 is the last game of the series, but is still currently in the works, 6.5 years after what was supposed to actually be the last game of the series, Illusiat 12, was released.

As for what the word "Illusiat" means, well it means nothing really. But the first Illusiat was originally called Labyrinth of Illusions, then an updated version called Labyrinth of Illusions II, which added graphical battles instead of menus only. It changed to Illusiat (the word comes from Illusions, actually), which is the name of a planet on which most of the serie occurs.

Illusiat 13 is meant as the awnser to the entire series, but I cannot tell too much since it would be too much spoilers

*Whew* Thanks DJ, That explains a lot. Now I feel like I'm not missing something.  It's a better feeling then/than (don't know which) before.

You're going to want to ask DJ Omnimaga personally. Or wait until he posts.

As far as I've gathered, Illusiat is a series of text-based RPGs that the creator of this here community, DJ Omnimaga, has ... well... created. Illusiat 13 is the latest one he's working on. This upcoming RPG keeps well with the spirit of the others by being text-based, but to hell if that doesn't make it great.

In fact, DJ Omnimaga has been well known to make ASCII graphics look sexy. See teh screenshots of his newest game as he makes it, in his own thread. Link? That's for luzerz that can't browse forum for themselves.

EDIT: DANG. I'm freaking LATE with the responses. Well, at least I can verify what I've said with the owner...

It's ok. Actually, the thing is that Illusiat was my least popular calc RPG series through almost the entire time I programmed for calculators, simply because most people play games only for graphics with total disregard about the rest of the content and most screenshots pretty much showed only the intro or early parts of the games. It took until I post a TI-83+ RPG Nostalgia video series on youtube until people actually start playing them more, as the videos has smoother framerate than animated gifs and showed mostly late parts of each games. The programming in them is questionable quality, though, as they were made in my early days of calc programming

EDIT: It's ok cooliojazz, actually not everyone types as fast as others anyway and maybe he wanted to have his say anyway, since when he hit reply he prbly didn't want to see his work of typing the entire post being wasted x.x
