Lonely Child Studios Announced Unleashed
It was announced by Lonely Child Studios Unleashed, a game made by a group of volunteers, which goal is to build a company after the release of the game, in late summer 2018. The first step to reach this goal is to successfully fund a KickStarter campaign, which launched the 13th of February.
Check out the official trailer of Unleashed, featuring some gameplay footage:
“Players that grew with games such as the Pokemon series will love to see the game style they know applied to a darker and original story.
Traditional RPG features such as turn based battles, exploration, inventory management and such were kept to have a strong base, and popular features were added such as farming, crafting, and even housing. Battles are team oriented, which allows building complex strategies to defeat strong ennemies.
A powerful curse has been cast across Mystria. It changed people, who became the expression of their primordial sin. Hiding their darkest impulses wasn’t possible anymore and their burning desire was the only thing guiding them. The curse affected their soul deeply, breaking it into ten parts. Each of those parts could represent either a sin or a virtue, able to manifest itself into the physical world via entities called Achivaras.
An accent has been put on the world’s richness. Never explore an empty world again: Mystria is filled with resources to harvest, random encounters to make, and secrets that are waiting to be discovered. Every time you explore a map, random elements will either spawn or not, which may open unknown paths. There is no level scaling in the game, and each of the 300 maps can be explored right from the beginning. Explore the world at your own risks!
During fights, while one’s soul can hold up to 10 Achivaras, but only 3 can be summoned at a time; strategies should be prepared thoroughly in order to win against strong opponents. Actions, which can be either of a sin or a virtue type, have different properties and can combo with other actions. If you don’t have any Achivara alive anymore, fight isn’t over! In Unleashed, you have to fight yourself for your survival.”
Feedback from indie development forums:
“I am glad I took the time to click, because it looks great!” – Typogre
“Certainly sounds like an interesting concept!” – bfarnsey
“I love the art style.” – ThylacineStudios
“This is potentially really cool-looking. I like the fact that you’re taking the sort of modern action/RPG aesthetic of weird monsters and demons and applying that to the old turn-based style that we mostly associate with elves, dwarves and goblins” – infinitywaltz1
