Noahmund, a new JRPG from Spain’s Estudio Àbrego, will be releasing onto Steam for PC and Mac in the latter half of 2018.
The game takes inspiration from Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy Tactics by featuring painterly visuals, node-based exploration system, and an atmospheric soundtrack. The game's developer says it's "a chess-like challenge that blends real-time action with a tactical grid."
Noahmund takes place in the land of Feros. The area is at war and Galina Angstroud, an agent of Shinn, is the only one willing to search and destroy Salaber’s most powerful weapon. As Feros burns, Gallina begins a journey for truth and salvation accompanied by her loyal guardian, Berani Valenti. Players will find themselves fighting against the odds to end the war between the North and South.
Borrowing from classic strategy RPGs, Noahmund’s exploration and battle systems feature highly detailed 3D characters and hand-drawn environments. A tactical grid system makes it straightforward for players to mount frontal attacks, execute flanking maneuvers, strike from a distance, and set up traps. Decisions must be made quickly, however, as combat takes place in real time. That means that one wrong move could turn the tide of battle against you. Going beyond gameplay, Noahmund features a storyline filled with deep mythology, unique characters, and menacing foes.
Noahmund won two awards at Málaga’s Gamepolis festival (“Best Audio” and a Special Jury Prize presented by industry luminary Gordon Walton).
The game is available via Steam for $14.95 – a 25% discount off of the normal price of $19.95. On Aug. 9, the game will return to its original price.
