Do you like Ps1 era RPG games? The Black Tower is for you



http://coinarcade.org/2013/04/19/lov...e-black-tower/

"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 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.)
