I have no idea what the name of it might be, but it was this old kind or role playing adventure turn based game.. And this description is very vague, but it had this very amazing creepy feel to it, and the view was from above the characters, and you would have to move them...There were all sorts of characters you would gain along the way, some of them creatures and others human.. I'm not sure if it's from the 90's or 80's, I vaguely remember playing it and I'm 18 now, so I must have been around 9 or 10.
That was the first thing I thought of, but I guess you figured it out after I scrolled down. However, Shining Force was on Sega Genesis not PC. I know because I spent forever playing Shining Force II hoping they wouldn't cycle it out of my Sega Channel menu the next month, but ended up staying on it for like a year. SEGA CHANNEL!
