Vagabond is a beautifully animated narrative-driven Sci-Fi adventure with RPG elements, that tells three interweaving stories set in a distant future where mankind has fled to the stars to rebuild and survive.
In Vagabond you’ll follow the stories of a convict trapped in a doomed orbital prison, a V-POL detective in pursuit of a masked killer and a young scientist who is looking to forge a new life for herself. The current build of the game features the first chapter of eight planned instalments and has a lot to get your head around, both in terms of narrative and gameplay. It’s a unique experience that combines platforming, turn based combat, RPG elements, puzzle solving and interactive dialogue/decision making where your choices can affect the storyline.
Vagabond isn’t perfect – it seems a little too text heavy at the moment and the timing-based combat system is a little hard to get to grips with. It shows a lot of promise though, with interesting characters, high quality pixel art animation and a very intriguing Sci-Fi story. A dark and mature Sci-Fi adventure with plenty to sink your teeth into.
