It seems someone made a randomizer for FFIV. Probably inspired by the rise of randomizer hacks for such games as Zelda ALTTP and Super Metroid.

I'm not really sure how a randomizer makes sense for a JRPG, though my guess is that what they've done is shuffle around key items, bosses, and such, and basically made it a puzzle to figure out where one can proceed with what, because the world is now pretty much entirely accessible due to the airship being accessible from the beginning of the game (hence the title "Free Enterprise").

Aside from that I don't know anything about it. This is the first time I've even seen a JRPG randomizer.

Gabe showed me this in chat a couple months ago with a suggestion that CoN stream it on Twitch. I might well take up that idea in the future, because I really like the idea.

Seems interesting. I'll try it out at some point, even though I'm not the biggest fan of randomizers.

I played it, its fun.

There is also lunar shuffle

maybe if they buffed renegade, scrapper (not holo) and Elementalists while toning down a few skills across all class then yea Id say its pretty good...

Link doesn't work. Try

One interesting things about this is a chance to able to play with rare drops you're unlikely to see in the regular game. I've never seen the Lilith Rod or Dragoon spear normally so it was quite satisfying to put them to use.
