Indie publisher Modus Games along with developers Dreams Uncorporated and SYCK, today revealed Cris Tales, a breathtakingly lush RPG following a heroine’s quest through past and future visions of her world to curb a merciless Empress’ rule and prevent a cataclysm. Gamers can explore its vibrant universe firsthand via the playable debut demo available now until June 24th on Steam. The game is slated to release next year on all platforms.
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.
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.
Cris Tales is scheduled to release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC in 2020.
