Default Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark - Preview

March 17th, 2018, 12:11
PC Gamer checked out a demo of the tactical RPG Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark:

Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark unabashedly takes after Final Fantasy: Tactics



We played the demo of the Kickstarter success to see how it's coming along.

My plan was to open with an easy joke about how characters in Fell Seal: Arbiter's Mark walk infinitely in place like it's the newest exercise craze (as you can see in the trailer above), but unfortunately I missed my chance. The developers at 6 Eyes Studio listened to player feedback and in the latest build characters have new, less goofy idle animations.

Those perpetually strolling characters showed how closely 6 Eyes are emulating Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre, their two main inspirations. Maybe it's for the best, but I'm sorry I took the moonwalking for granted. Yet even without endlessly marching NPCs, there are a lot of elements of Fell Seal lifted directly from Final Fantasy: Tactics.

[…]

I can't say for sure, but I don't get the feeling that Fell Seal is going to dip into cliches like "the hero was destined all along" or "the villain wants to turn the entire world into a hellscape." Nothing is for certain, but I've so far enjoyed the story of these three stalwart Arbiters who find themselves the center of attention not due to supernatural ability or conveniently royal blood, but by pure unfortunate circumstance.

If it follows FF Tactics' and Tactics Ogre's steps then it's in good company

Yeah, this one has the potential to be simply awesome. Maybe the first in a new series, who knows?

Oh, and I also posted earlier in the jrpg section about how these fine folk now have a publisher to help them get this out to the masses.
