Are you a fan of asymmetric RPGs? Do you like role-playing in a fantasy adventure-scape? Curtel Games will release their upcoming “Graphic Adventure” The Ballad Singer for PC via Steam Early Access on September 27th, 2018.
The Ballad Singer is a twining maze of different outcomes, putting your choices front and center during any journey. The role-playing adventure game is set in a fantasy world brought to life through visual story-telling.
On the topic of story-telling, the devs have taken elements from game-books and visual novels to develop The Ballad Singer with an unprecedented format.
The asymmetric RPG offers a fantasy story yet to be written, where the world changes and reacts to your actions. The devs claim that you will be able to live up to 1,700 stories and witness over 40 different endings.
Moreover, every single development and subplot in the story is completely narrated and illustrated, even down to the smallest ones.
Sounds interesting? You be the judge and look over what The Ballad Singer has to offer right here:
“The Ballad Singer is an asymmetric adventure, inspired by RPGs and game books, where you can experience many dynamic stories. Forge the fate of Hesperia through the stories of four different adventurers in a fantasy world completely illustrated and narrated.”
Things worth noting is, the game is fully narrated with over 400,000 words and 40 hours of narration. More than 700 HD illustrations are in the game, and happen to be accompanied by more than 40 musical tracks.
The game also sports 400 different “detailed deaths,” where death plays a part in the overall story, meaning there’s no “Game Over” screen. When a character you’re assuming dies, you will play as a new hero within the same story just in a different narrative path.
