Celestian Tales: Old North | oprainfall

After an unsuccessful Kickstarter campaign back in July 2013, Ekuator Games has come back with a brand new campaign for Celestian Tales: Old North. In only five days they have already made about 75% of their goal. The game is an RPG that is part Odin Sphere, part Grandia, and part Final Fantasy VI that seeks to redefine what a classic RPG is.

In this new incarnation of their game, Ekuator Games have improved the visuals of Tales: Old North tenfold with hand-drawn environments and extremely detailed 2D sprites. The game still features multiple points of view and character arcs as well as a deeply engaging storyline that promises to leave the player wondering if they did the right thing.

Celestian Tales: Old North’s story offers some depth beyond the traditional hero in a world of obvious good and evil. This game promises themes of “grey morals, questionable justice, and blind faith” that are sure to leave players contemplating their actions long after the game is over. Spanning a total of three decades, Ekuator Games state that the game will come in three continuous parts, much like the Walking Dead games, and that players will see how their actions have impacted Old North over the long term.

With this new Kickstarter campaign, Ekuator games also have a demo/prototype version available to download so that potential backers can see what they are capable of.
