I couldn't miss the chance to practice my drawing!
The Developer's Office in Final Fantasy IV is located in the Dwarven Castle's Lali-ho Pub, through a hidden passage marked by a cracked tile. It consists of staff members of the game's original release, who remain unchanged in re-releases save for the 3D versions.
The Developer's Office was removed for the Easy Type and North American SNES releases.
Layout[edit | edit source]
The main room consists of a large square counter with tables and stools, and a hallway with two other rooms and a staircase leading down. The first room consists of graphic designers working at desks, and the second is the Music Room populated by sound designers and is full of harps. The stairs lead to the Break Room where two designers are resting in beds. In the Break Room, the player can find the Lustful Lali-ho magazine on the bookshelf.
