Previously having dropped on Steam and Humble Bundle, Neko.works have now moved their turn-based Japanese RPG over to Xbox One, as Episode 1 of a planned multi-chapter affair launches.
Running along with a price point of £8.39 – with an initial launch discount dropping that down to a mere £6.29 – Light Fairytale follows the tale of Haru who embarks on an adventurous mission to discover what went wrong in his world thousands of years before. And it’ll be up to you to help Haru confront the rulers of a dystopian society as he calls on the help of a mysterious silver haired girl.
With each character bringing their own unique skills and abilities to the Light Fairytale table, working your way through this 90’s inspired JRPG promises to be one intriguing affair. With the development process handled by just the one person at neko.works, and a huge amount of time and love thrown in, it’s certainly something that has interested us – particularly now tat we see a launch on Xbox One.
That Xbox Store will sort you out with the usual download, and we’ll no doubt have a few little thoughts dropping their way to these pages in the days ahead. Make sure you keep an eye out for them, but on the face of it, with that low price, we reckon Light Fairytale Episode 1 is well worth considering.
Let us know what you think though – the comments section is down below.
– Introduction: Light Fairytale is a turn-based Japanese-style RPG in full 3D, set in a dying underground world ruled by a fierce and powerful empire. The goal of this project is to bring back the immersion and emotion of 90’s era JRPGs on current hardware, with the expected evolution in both design and technique. – Story: A long time ago, the world was prosperous. Technology and sciences were quite advanced, and people lived in great pleasure and casual excess. However, this proved their undoing when the world as they knew it, seemingly in an instant, was destroyed forever. Desperate and forlorn, the survivors of civilization resorted to fleeing to the only place on the planet where it was still possible to live – deeply underground. And so there they stayed, and survived. Thousands of years later, the history of the surface has been forgotten, left to dust, and the wealth of the past lost to time. Even the very word “sky” has lost all meaning… And then, a young boy named Haru wakes one day, fleeting dreams of vast green plains and a clear blue void locked in his memory; deep rooted, unshakeable… and driving him to know just what he saw. Now, he must embark on a great adventure in order to discover the mysteries of the lost world, confronting the rulers of this dystopian society and beyond with the aid of a mysterious, silver haired girl… Light Fairytale will span over multiple episodes. A long journey awaits! – Characters: Haru: A bit lazy and a lot naive, Haru nonetheless is a kind soul and knows how to handle himself if push comes to shove. His noble heart can move people to do things they’d never dreamed themselves capable. Kuroko: She might be short and cute (sometimes), but don’t let that fool you: Kuroko is exceedingly capable in battle and always willing to step up. She’s also fond of technology – maaaybe a bit too much so. – About neko.works neko.works is a one person indie game studio from France making modern renditions of classic concepts.
