Beat the clock, you gotta beat the clock

This weekend noticed the UK put the clocks ahead one hour, and hoo-boy am I feeling it. It’s instances like these I want I had the ability of characters corresponding to Crisbell, the protagonist of Modus Games’ Cris Tales. Crisbell is a Time Mage, y’see, and for her placing the clock ahead, or backward, is so simple as a blink. That’s the superpower I’d like essentially the most. At least I’d get some dang sleep.

But Crisbell is not the one magical, mystical particular person residing in CrisTales‘ fantasy kingdom of Crystalis. And whereas on her quest to confront the villainous Empress of the Ages, Crisbell will meet an enormous forged of characters, providing help or impeding progress as our hero pushes ever nearer to a future that can have an effect on each one of them.

You can get an introduction to some of these characters within the above trailer, which supplies us a glimpse of Crisbell herself, her dapper frog companion Matias, and her childlike tutor Willhelm. Also stopping by are courageous warrior Cristopher, high-spirited nomad Zas, and the enigmatic android JKR-721. These are among the many allies who will help Crisbell as she journeys throughout 4 kingdoms, in her struggle to free Crystalis from the Empress’ time tyranny.

Launching on PlayStation, Xbox, PC, Stadia, and Nintendo Switch platforms in July, Modus Games describes Cris Tales as a “gorgeous indie love-letter to classic JRPGs.” With lavish and vibrant hand-drawn artwork and a heat fantasy storyline, Cris Tales seems to be proper up my alley, and is a title I’m very a lot trying ahead to. Given the mediocre response to final 12 months’s demo, I’m approaching with warning, however builders Dreams Unincorporated and SYCK are conscious of the group’s critique, delaying the title in order to address said concerns. Hopefully, stopping the clock pays dividends come the intriguing title’s eventual launch.
