Gamers Opinions

  • A very well done game.
  • A pretty cool indie JRPG.
  • A few jrpgs suffer this problem.
  • An instant classic in my opinion.
  • By the end I was still getting lost.
  • Very different from JRPG as general.
  • It wants to be like Final Fantasy on SNES.
  • Very sad for this lack of gameplay element.
  • It does boast a beautiful hand drawn art style.
  • SNES Final Fantasy and Game of Thrones had a child.
  • A beautiful old-school RPG that is worth the money.
  • They don’t go full all out for the enemies’ strategy.
  • I would recommend this to any fan of SNES/PSX era JRPGs.
  • It’s your typical turn-based combat that’s common to JRPGs.
  • Typical old school JRPG turn based combat system.
  • There are no side quest and the whole game is straightforward.
  • All this game has to offer are its aesthetics & super short story.
  • The game has full controller support, and plays very well with one.
  • This game is beautiful, especially considering it’s an indie title.
  • Pick it up if you’re a fan of classic turn-based role-playing games.
  • If you like classic JRPGs, give it a whirl…you might be surprised.
  • Sprites are well animated, but somehow the battle animation is a bit lame.
  • It natively supports the Xbox 360 controller too, so that’s a plus for me.
  • The music is nice and the whole art style for the game is pretty well done.
  • The characters are well done and the enviroment fits nicely with the music.
  • I have certainly played worse rpgs on steam that have gotten higher ratings.
  • The story is a little slow at the start, but that’s understandable for an RPG.
  • You should buy if you love RPGs and especially if you love the Suikoden series.
  • Aside from that, I did not see any framerate drops, stuttering, lag, or slowdown.
  • They intended that you play through multiple times as different characters.
  • Played the Final Fantasies games (until 8), plus a couple of jRPGs back in the days.
  • It took me about 10 hours to complete, including grinding to max level and for items.
  • In visual novels it’s as simple as scrolling up if you accidentally advance too soon.
  • I find the game too easy but i had fun playing it. CONS: The story is short, 5- 6 hours.
  • I maxed out my characters (level 30 is the top) 7 hours in with no grinding or detours.
  • The player chooses one squire to act as the main character, which determines the story.
  • But I did win them with a clever strategy (Reynard immorality + bleed prevention ring).
  • It’s well written and there’s an actual psychology and depth to the guys in your party.
  • I think a combat tutorial would have been nice for those who aren’t accustomed to JRPGs.
  • It’s a decent JRPG, and coming from me who usually can’t stand the genre, is a good thing.
