Regalia - Of Men And Monarchs


#1

This definitely has FFTA2 vibes, @maiki. Hopping on at the $25 level so I can snag the OST.

A loving homage to classic JRPGs. Tactical battles mixed with rich story, social links, pleasant visuals and a fantastic soundtrack.

Looks interesting, and I am a nutter for 2.5 isometric tactical RPGs! I am not jazzed on the title or the depiction of women in it, which are parts of classic JRPGs I do not fancy...

That right there is why you are hurting on the Kickstarter funds! You gotta choose yer perks better. How do you even have time for OSTs while OC ReMix exists?


Kickstarter profiles: whatcha got?

I try to make a point of requesting or wanting the soundtrack, to give the feedback that I think music in games is extremely important. I do like OC ReMix, but I also want that composer out there potentially making an amazing OST to know it is appreciated by itself.

Oh man, Kickstarter funds. I am already so deep into it.. Here is my profile, what have you backed? I'm interested in any overlap. :bar_chart:

@tim, how was Regalia?


#7

The story was really… horrible. Just bland and boring. And it’s more like a game on rails, you don’t choose the battles as much as I thought. And you don’t really choose your fighters, and it feels weirdly slow to me.

I have a bigger appreciation for how FFTA2:LotGR made the combat always feel… urgent and snappy. I think it has to do with quicker animation, faster moving, etc.

I’m not backing any tactical RPGs that don’t release their engine. I don’t need more mediocre games, I need a grid system.


#9

Dude, I am working on mine as fast as I can!!

I was thinking about it last night, it would be an ideal engine for online tactical RPG stuffs.
