K. Newton’s Chrono Trigger: An Existentialist Reading

When recently playing through Chrono Trigger for the 4th time (this time on the Nintendo DS), I was presented with a difficult in-game choice. (For role-playing game fans, I’ll say that I was presented with the choice at North Cape and leave it as that.) A quick online search to discover the consequences of each possible choice led me to the final in a series of articles exploring the subtext of one of the greatest video games of all time.

I’ve compiled the following list of links for my own convenience, but I also hope they might inspire more people to give K. Newton’s thoughtful articles a read.
