Along with Matt and Natalie , the game features a returning and now playable character previously, a villain , Lance , a gunner and an expert in Bomb-elemental techniques. Now jumping deeper into the role-playing genre, many elements which were not seen before have been integrated; of most significance is map navigation and the introduction of non-player characters.
A few years ago, a great battle against an evil entity rocked the earth. The destruction left the population enfeebled and struggling to survive.
A mighty warrior, Lance the gunner, took this opportunity to conquer the lands. However, he was promptly defeated by Matt the swordsman and Natalie the magician. Following this battle, the three young heroes teamed up, hoping that no new evil force could defeat their combined power, and once more bring chaos into the world.
The trio spent their days hunting treasure and challenging new opponents. Eventually, legends and rumours led them to an ancient tomb, the resting place of a powerful deity.
To their surprise, it seemed that this being was still alive, merely imprisoned and induced into a deep sleep. Curiously the trio prodded the chained demon. The demon quickly awoke with a violent shockwave. The trio were stunned and unable to retaliate as powerful magic tugged at their souls. The demon began to drain their life energy, but as the heroes were so powerful, their combined energy was too much for him to absorb, and they survived the ordeal.
However, the power of this demon was now so dense it began to distort the space and time around him, forming a growing void of nothingness. When the trio awoke, they found themselves in a foreign land. With most of their powers drained, and their equipment scattered throughout the continent, they were reduced to the status of ordinary adventurers.
They would not give up until they had remedied this situation. Clearly it was not just their problem, but the entire world's. An ancient and mysterious deity, now possessing their combined powers, was free to lay waste to the lands. Sound and Quality settings are in the right-click menu.
M and F also open some menus. After the defeat of Lance at the hands of Matt and Natalie during the events of EBF2 , the world managed to rebuild civilization and proceeded to live in relative peace. The three heroes, meanwhile, banded together, hoping that no evil would be able to overcome their combined strength.
A few years later, the heroes stumble upon the resting place of the infamous Akron , an ancient demon god so powerful he was sealed away to prevent the destruction of the world. Unwisely, the heroes prodded him Matt poking him just once with his sword to test his vitality. Akron awoke with a violent shockwave, draining the heroes' power. The heroes were only saved from death by the fact that their combined power was too great for any one entity to completely absorb.
They awake in a distant land , determined to recover their lost strength and defeat Akron for good. As the heroes discover more about their current location, they also discern the resting place of Akron. Driven by vengeance, the heroes begin their trek north, regaining some of their powers as they go. Their first obstacle is a thick forest , home to a swarm of poisonous bees , enchanted trees , and worst of all, an enormous robotic pumpkin. After a climactic final battle for the fate of the universe, Akron is killed once and for all, and the heroes go on vacation at the beach.
New gameplay features include the ability to level up all three characters, gaining experience and a new system of Ability Points , to upgrade a vast collection of skills and spells. Equipment can be collected and equipped, as well as forged with certain combinations of items to upgrade their power and effectiveness. Additionally, side quests can be accumulated by talking to NPCs, and when completed, will reward certain equipment, items, medals , or additional skills.
There are also minigames to play that provide a source of gold and medals. In addition to all the artwork and designs from the previous two games, Matt Roszak had released fresh conceptual designs for the new game on DeviantArt as early as October He uploaded an interactive flash on 29 October which featured the three main characters, showing random newly-developed armour and weapons equipped, as well as the improved character animations.

Further conceptual art for icons, backgrounds, world maps and NPCs, previews of minigames, cutscenes, and demos of the GUI, upgrades and battle systems, were uploaded to show his progress, until several teaser screens displaying in-game fight scenes were eventually posted, the last one on 7 August, before the official release.

On 12 August the first beta version was officially released to the public on DeviantArt, followed by the second on 22 August.
