Skyborn is a game that offers a level of refinement and quality superior to most RPG Maker-based games costing $5- $10 more. I never really thought of it as "a mere RPG Maker game" except when I had to write about the technical aspects of it in my review. Even then, it still exudes a sense of style all its own and transcends its humble roots in some ways. Were I to ONLY compare it to other RPG Maker games, its score would be about 5 points higher; but I respect it enough to look at it beyond the blinders of that niche and put it in with the "bigger boys." A good game is a good game and Skyborn is one of those games that made me think, "Wow! This should be a hit animated series with action-figure tie-ins." I'd watch a Skyborn animated series on television and buy some action figures, for sure.
Skyborn's conclusion leaves plenty of room for a followup, and considering how quickly the game goes by that would be ideal. A game that leaves the player eager for more is preferable to one that doesn't know when to quit, and at least Skyborn errs on the right side of that mark. The game may not be a paragon of excellence in all respects that needs to be played by all, but it does a superb job of being entertaining while it lasts.
