Imaginary Range is an interactive comic by Square Enix designed for iOS and Android. An HD version is also available on iPad. The experience revolves around two characters with an intention of saving the world using a strange device called PAD. The experience has several famous Final Fantasy characters appearing as cameos, including moogle, chocobo, cactuar, and Bahamut.
The experience's story is told in the form of comic strips. While reading the comic, players can also look for "moogle" symbols and items, sometimes hidden in the comic strips. On some part of the comic playing a minigame is required to advance the story, with the game usually connected to the current story. The comic's "game" portion consisted of different types of minigames that can be accessed later if the player has finished an episode on the main story. Minigames will also give players coins based on their score.
Imaginary Range focuses on two characters:
- Cid: A man with the ability to create anything out of his imagination using a device called PAD.
- Ciela: A girl that accompanies Cid.
- Rapunzel: A mysterious woman that Cid seems to know. She was also asleep on a pod on Cid's laboratory.
Episode I: OmegaEdit
The story starts in Paris, where the city is apparently under attack by a massive robot called "Omega". A girl named Ciela is commanding the army to strike at the robot, albeit to no avail. Ciela then contacts a man, who is standing on Eiffel Tower; overseeing the incident. The man, Cid, asks Ciela to trust him and his "miracles". Ciela does so by stabbing what appears to be a huge dagger onto her stomach. The man then takes out a device named "PAD", and states that he can make his imaginations become real using the device.
After gathering some "IPs", he uses the PAD to transform Ciela into a superhero named "Miracle Girl". Cid then throws the huge daggers, named "PILE", around the Eiffel Tower and transformed it into a rocket and launches it towards Omega.
From afar, a group of people witness Cid's attempt to take out Omega. Though Omega appears to be defeated, someone uses another PAD to resurrect Omega; now resembling more of a monster than robot. Cid then tries to take on Omega, but was knocked unconscious. In his dreams, Cid and Ciela appears in a laboratory with people sleeping on pods. When Cid wakes up, he tells Ciela that he saw "Rapunzel" among those group of people. He then uses a PILE to hit Omega's eye and finish it off. He and Ciela then disappear while witnessing what appears to be purple butterflies.
The mysterious group from before does so as well, with Rapunzel stating Cid will never be able to join them. The episode ends with Ciela and Cid waking up in "fantasy land" with moogles, chocobos and a monster.
