Are you tired of the mute hero going from rages to riches, killing gods, or other typical fantasy tropes? Do you tire of bland story and desire for more out of your role playing plots? Do you like characters that develop over an entire lifetime? You answered “yes” to all of these questions, I’m going to go ahead and recommend Celestian Tales: Old North to you.
The turn-based combat looks smooth and intuitive and the sprite designs and hand-painted backdrops are gorgeous. Toss in a throwback soundtrack steeped in classical fantasy themes that mirrors the works of Hiroki Kikuta, Motoi Sakuraba and Yasunori Mitsuda, and you have yourself a potential instant-classic in the making.
The work they have done so far is solid and they really just need some support to be able to finish fleshing out what looks to be a great story in the making.
Aiming to redefine and re-imagine classic RPGs is a tall order, but the team behind Celestian Tales: Old North doesn’t seem fazed. In fact, it looks as though they’re hitting the nail right on the head.
