Celestian Tales: Old North is a great loking RPG featuring moral-driven storyline, six points of view, multiple personal arcs, and beautifully hand-drawn art.
Unlike other fantasy RPGs the storyline does not revolve around a dimension-defying sorcerer or an awakened godlike creature of ancient myths, but the darkness lurking in every man’s heart. Grey morals, questionable justice, and blind faith are among the main themes of Celestian Tales. You’ll play the game from 6 different viewpoints, as 6 different characters, spanning 3 decades, with the players growing and the land changing over time. With no real black and white choices, the developers hope is that when you reach the end of the game, you’ll ask yourself “Did I do the right thing?”
The Prototype shows off a small section of gameplay, allowing you to explore a forest and the first town. You’ll take part in some turn based battles which are fairly standard RPG battles at the moment, but hopefully it will become more complex as time goes on. The visuals are wonderful though, with it’s hand drawn backdrops and sprite-based characters, this isn’t just another RPG Maker game, it’s coded in Unity, and all the better for it.
The promise of a complex moral-driven storyline, playable from 6 different perspectives all wrapped up in a wonderful hand-drawn visual style, make Celestian Tales: Old North a very exciting prospect – an old school RPG with a new way of thinking.
