"A turn-based RPG, everything from the overworld to the camera angles to the dialogue boxes to the running animations utterly nails the feel of an old-school early 3D RPG and if it’s something you grew up with you’ll immediately notice how spot-on the feel of the game is already, even in its work-in-progress stages. The story sounds typically RPG-ish — you play as a forest ranger in the year 2032 in an attempt to save the planet, later bonding with a girl that’s fallen from the sky. Obviously.
The battle mechanics feature the ability to have up to three fighters and three supporters within one battle — basically, the primary three fighters have the typical attack/magic/etc. options, but you’ll be able to assign three different supporters to your team that will have a special ‘support command that can be used during battle for various effects. It’s a slight twist to a beloved formula, which is sensible as most decent modern RPGs (looking at Lost Odyssey, Ni no Kuni and Eternal Sonata here) have ever-so-slightly edited the basics in order to keep it fresh, and frankly, that works wonders."
Awesome. Total FFVII feel to it IMO. Animations look weak, but it's not done yet...
I love it, but truth be told, Im not in my teens anymore. I cant sink 60+ hours into a game these days...
I agree. I use to love these games as a kid. Final Fantasy, Legend of Dragoon, Suikoden, etc., but I can't play these types of games as I get older. Don't have the time/attention span to play these games. Also, a lot of these games that try to recapture that old school spirit just don't have that certain charm with the soundtrack or art-style, in my opinion. Like Ni No Kuni, for instance, the game was completely unremarkable to me. I understand it was a throwback but when I played it I realized I didn't miss any of that stuff in video games (like world map, lots of towns, etc.)
Re: Do you like Ps1 era RPG games? The Black Tower is for you
It screams crappy game to me.
As long as there's a Triforce, there will be a Zelda;
as long as there's a prosperous kingdom, there will be an evil bent on destroying it;
and as long as there's an oppressive force threatening Hyrule, there will be a boy...
in a green tunic, silver shield, and magic blade to stand against it.
