Indie publisher Modus Games along with developers Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK have announced a new RPG called Cris Tales. The game follows a heroine’s quest through past and future visions of her world to curb a merciless Empress’ rule and prevent a cataclysm.
Cris Tales’ combat calls for a calculated strategy as players guide protagonist Crisbell and her allies through turn-based battles where a unique time magic mechanic can alter her foes’ timelines. Attributes and advantages change depending on an enemy’s placement in time, making each encounter an engaging dance of coordinating team strikes, defense possibilities, and warping timetables.
Watch the Cris Tales – E3 announcement trailer below:
Crisbell’s journey leads her through a fantastical and exquisitely detailed world where she’ll meet incredible allies and witness stunning vistas across five varied regions, like the pristine towers of the kingdom of Crystallis and the grimy slums of Saint Clarity. Her party’s actions leave a profound influence across time in and out of battle, meaningfully impacting gameplay. Witness the results of your choices in real-time through traditionally animated graphics and experience a branching ending while braving a visually dynamic land in need of saving.
A playable demo of Cris Tales is available now until 24th June. The game is scheduled to release on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2020. Check out the official Cris Tales website for more information.
