Default Kickstarter campaign to launch for fans of retro RPGs - Press Release at Renderosity

November 6th, 2018, 22:56
My Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for Imperium Omni, the RPG Unreal Engine game of my novel, just had our first Press Release, and it was picked up by Renderosity Magazine. Great article featuring the new teaser-tralier! https://magazine.renderosity.com/art…-of-retro-rpgs

Check it out, I'd love to know what you think!

Well, I'm not a big fan of real time combat / action RPGs in general (which this seems to be). But I'm curious: how is this a retro RPG? Obviously the graphics are not AAA, but aside from dated 3D graphics… is there anything retro about the gameplay?

Hi! Glad you asked! The teaser-trailer doesn't give the MAP-Based UI (which is Turn Based indeed!) enough time to shine. Think of it kindof like the blend that Heroes of Might and Magic did; your primary means of navigation and interaction is all map-based, and there are various 'static' animations also, like when you visit shops and such. But combat, you are correct, is real-time 3D using Unreal 4.0 . But the majority of your interactions are based on classic map/turn play. I hope that helps to answer your question!
