For those that don't peruse the NA forums, I'd like to start discussion of this here. It was programmed by NA forumer, user
, and was the first game released from Sole Goose Productions (who is now working on his second release, a 2048 clone from the same programmer).
The game features a minimalist graphics style, which I find appealing in the same way that table-top RPGs are, as it leaves a lot to the imagination.
Its battle system is unique, in that you have a short time per character's turn to input a button combination to choose your action. The combinations are shown on screen through the use of symbols.
Although they did some limited and numbered editions with different packaging, the standard version has just recently been released.
I actually illustrated the cover art, and designed the packaging, logo, and manual cover for this.
btw, I inquired about a Famicom release, and SGP said that he'd love to do one, but without a source of new boards and cart shells, the upfront costs would be too high. However, if anyone's interested in purchasing an NES copy, they're available for sale here
(NA) and here
As for the art, I'll be selling posters of the artwork probably next month (same as my Pyronaut posters), if anyone's interested in those as well, PM me or reply here.
So, what do ya'll think?
Have you been following this title? Is this the first you've seen of it? Thoughts on the gameplay / packaging?
