Millennium 2: Take Me Higher is the second of five parts in the Millennium series from Aldorlea Games, and is available on Steam at 20% off for a short time.
Fans of JRPGs have a lot of games on their plates nowadays. The availability of easy-to-learn software like RPG Maker and Unity has led to legions of gamers who grew up during the NES and SNES eras trying their hands at game design, with mixed results. By all accounts Aldorlea Games is one of the better small developers to rise from this trend, producing well-designed and intriguing top-down RPGs reminiscent of the 16-bit classics.
Millennium 2 continues the story and characters featured in the first game, presenting players with new challenges and locations to explore. The game, along with the next three titles in the series, has been available on Aldorlea’s web site for some time, but only last week made its way to Steam thanks to a successful Greenlight campaign.
This makes Millennium 2 the fifth game from its developers to make the transition to the platform, and player response has been quite positive. Many players are praising the series for its well told story and solid gameplay balance, helping the series to stand apart from the rest of the indie JRPG market. The developers have also put a lot of hard work into their visual department, helping not only Millennium 2 but many of their games to hold a visual edge over a lot of other RPG maker titles on the market.
With so much work put into their titles, it’s no small wonder the developers are proud of their achievements in the games, proudly showing off their work both on their web site and on Youtube.

Aldorlea Games plans to bring the rest of the series to the digital distribution platform in the near future, so grab it and its prequel and get ready for a great ride of classic RPG dungeon crawling, magic casting, and monster looting.
