The Week of February 17 2019
Chained Echoes is a classic SNES-styled RPG, bringing back all the fun things from that era while reinventing and developing them further. Follow a group of heroes on their journey through the war-ridden land of Valandis. Fight against hordes of enemies in a turn based battle system. There are no random encounters and no separate battle arena. This allows for the player to use the environment to his advantage, either in the midst of the fight or in preparation for it. In case fighting your enemies with sword or magic is not enough, you can switch to your Mech and bring out the big guns. A complex battle and skill system makes sure that everything stays balanced and fun. An equipment system allows for a lot of customization of your characters, your Mechs and even your own airship! And having an airship means that there will be a world map waiting for the players to be explored. Chained Echoes is a colorful adventure full of surprises, fun characters, and an engaging story.
