Bevontule is an upcoming tactical turn-based RPG that layers innovative mechanics atop classic role-playing elements, presenting a compelling, deep and mature storyline detailing the tumultuous history of a world and its continent. The idea of Bevontule has existed in a very basic, conceptual form for roughly 20 years, its primary emphases being on plot, lore and character development, as well as combat, customization and rewarding progression.
Featuring a deep, challenging and innovative turn-based tactical combat system, much of the tension revolves around the many ways in which characters can master the nuances of their available skills and equipment setups to best dispatch the highly intelligent enemies they will encounter. We do away with grid-based movement and allow the party unbridled range of motion upon the battlefield. Using its dynamic targeting and movement systems, the player can check the outcome of any action from any position. If an action appears, it can be taken and there is no randomness to suddenly snuff out what would be an otherwise strategically-sound decision.
Plot progression is driven by a tightly-written and mythology-deep storyline that has been decades in the making and is codified in many short stories, maps, sketches and even its own wiki. Not only is the main story-line arc of the game solidified, but so too is the extensive history and setting in which the game occurs. Featuring a welcome return to navigation upon a true world map and a questing system urging quality over quantity, you’ll join a maturely-written cast of characters and the stranger among them looking to maybe stave off the looming calamity… or unwittingly hasten its arrival.
At LiminalLLC, we’ve played our fair share of role-playing games and grew up during what we would argue were the golden years of RPGs, churning out such behemoths as Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Final Fantasy Tactics and many, many more. While it could be argued endlessly as to which one truly wore the crown, each one presented some embedded piece of wisdom. We hope Bevontule will go down as a worthy successor to the ideas presented in the many masterpieces that came before us. Having the resolve, knowledge, experience and passion to see the game through to its completion, we are more than equipped to make this desire a reality.
