Twin Otter Studios’ crowdfunded isometric RPG, Arcadian Atlas, has finally progressed far enough along in development where the Steam store page has gone live and gamers are now being informed that the game will be coming soon to Valve’s digital distribution platform.
The game is an isometric, tactical turn-based role-playing title that throws players into the trenches of political intrigue, romance, betrayal, and all the other typical machinations of bad guys and evil doers.
Players will be able to customize their character at the start of the game, choosing a class and evolving from there. There’s a variety of classic, including Rogue, Ranger, Apothecary and Warmancer. Surprisingly the Warmancer is scantily clad, hearkening back to the days when female sexuality wasn’t outlawed on the peevish grounds of perpetuating the patriarchy from the penumbra of the male gaze.
Anyway, you can check out the trailer for the game below, highlighting some of the story elements, the combat and a few of the characters you’ll encounter throughout the journey.
Arcadian Atlas first came onto the scene back in spring of 2016 when the game managed to get Kickstarted through crowdfunding for just a little under $100,000. The team at Twin Otter Studios have been working tirelessly since then in order to get the game finished and out for PC gamers as soon as possible.
Based on the visuals alone you can see that the game was obviously inspired by classic 16-bit RPGs from the SNES and Sega Genesis era of gaming… you know, the era where developers made games for fun instead of trying to inculcate people with political propaganda? Yeah… that era.
You can obviously see inspiration from classics like Tactics Ogre, Breath of Fire and Final Fantasy Tactics.
