Tactical RPG Noahmund is headed to Steam
I love a good JRPG, from Final Fantasy to Recettear I love em all. The deep gameplay, the hours lost to minutia, the time spent min-maxing its all just a part of the fun. So when I saw that Noahmund was headed for steam, I got excited. First a little background, Noahmund is kickstarter sucess story. Funded in 2017 the game is poised to become another Kickstarter success story when it releases later this year. To celebrate its debut on the Steam platform developer Estudio Àbrego have created a brand new trailer.
Inspired by Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy Tactics, Noahmund’s painterly visuals, node-based exploration system, and atmospheric soundtrack are sure to impress RPG fans eager for a chess-like challenge that blends real-time action with a tactical grid.
The land of Feros is at war. Galina Angstroud, an agent of Shinn, is the only one willing to search and destroy Salaber’s most powerful weapon – deployed months ago with deadly results. As Feros burns, Gallina begins a journey for truth and salvation accompanied by her loyal guardian, Berani Valenti – fighting against the odds to end the war between the North and South … and save lives.
Alejandro Domínguez (CEO & Lead Programmer, Estudio Àbrego) said:
“We’re thankful to have played video games starting at an early age. Games were instrumental in helping us better understand the nature of emotions, courage, and character. Growing up, some of our best friends were those we met through our shared love of video games. It’s incredibly satisfying to be able to give back to current generations by developing and releasing our own title, Noahmund.”
Borrowing from classic strategy RPGs, Noahmund’s exploration and battle systems feature highly detailed 3D characters and hand-drawn environments. A tactical grid system makes it straightforward for players to mount frontal attacks, execute flanking maneuvers, strike from a distance, and even set up traps! However, decisions must be made quickly: Combat takes place in real time, so one wrong move can easily turn the tide of battle. Noahmund won two awards at Málaga’s Gamepolis festival (“Best Audio” and a Special Jury Prize presented by industry luminary Gordon Walton).
