Celestian Tales: Old North. - A Traditional Narrative-Driven RPG

by Couchpotato, 2013-07-12 02:01:33

Well by now most of you should know I love 2D traditional RPG's. So because of that I bring you a new kickstarter called Celestian Tales: Old North.

Traditional narrative-driven RPG. An epic of love, faith, and justice. Six characters. Three decades. How will you shape the Old North?

Celestian Tales: Old North is inspired by JRPG titles of the 90s, the era of SNES and PlayStationWe strive to recreate the retro feel but add our own modern touches on top of it. For example, our native resolution is 800 x 600 instead of 640 x 480, we use high-resolution hand-drawn character illustrations for dialogues instead of pixel art, and user interfaces are made with seamless animation.

Stemming from our love of great stories and narrative-driven games, Celestian Tales is a direct fruition of seven years of brewing ideas, concocting intrigues, and sculpting a living, breathing world through D&D 3.5e, D&D 4e, Pathfinder, Iron Kingdoms RPG, and many other tabletop RPGs. The story of Old North is derived from one of our dedicated campaigns which ran weekly sessions for a year long. Have you ever created an original character and wished he/she could be alive in some form? This is it -- this is that hope made reality.

Have you ever felt nostalgic about classic RPGs you played in your youth? Are you an old school gamer like us who long to taste once again how a game with simple graphics could move our hearts? To play a game which memories you'll cherish deeply for a long time? Perhaps you've never experienced it yet have heard about legends of the past?
