Game information

Chrono Trigger is a role-playing game developed and published by Square (now Square Enix) for the Super Nintendo Entertainment System in 1995. Its story follows a group of adventurers who travel through time to prevent a global catastrophe. The game features time travel via time gates or the time machine Epoch, in which they can travel to various points in in-game history, and can change the timeline. There are thirteen possible endings.

Chrono Trigger was a critical and commercial success and is considered one of the best games of all time, with critics praising its multiple endings, plot-related sidequests focusing on character development, unique battle system, and detailed graphics.

A Brief History


  • This is the first game to be featured on any Theorist channel or series, and is thus the first game to be covered on Game Theory.
  • Chrono Trigger is tied with EarthBound as MatPat's favorite game.
  • The score "Ayla's Theme", composed by Yasunori Mitsuda, is used as the theme music for Digressing and Sidequesting.
