Gameplay demo for the Kickstarter project Light Fairytale is out online. A description of the game can be found here.
Light Fairytale is a turn-based Japanese-style RPG set in a dying underground world ruled by a fierce empire. Inspired by classics such as Final Fantasy 7 and Breath of Fire 5. The first episode is coming in 2017 on PC and Consoles. In English and Japanese.
The goal of this project is to bring back the immersion and emotion of 90’s JRPGs, but with modern graphics and gameplay systems. I think the reason why most recent games in the genre have failed to impress is their overly complicated stories and the realistic direction they are taking. This does not leave much to the imagination and just doesn’t feel like the naive drama stories we used to love.
Most game-systems in those games are also too complex and require lots of time and dedication to start to be fun. I personally believe in quick and easy to understand, but hard to master gameplay mechanics. This is exactly what I’m trying to achieve with Light Fairytale: A light yet touching story, with a simple but addictive gameplay!
