Digital Tribe and Ekuator Games present to you Celestian Tales: Old North, a turn-based role-playing game created in traditional JRPG style, full of lush hand-painted environments, emotive portraits, memorable characters and a sprawling engaging moralistic storyline that is told through the eyes of six protagonists over many engrossing hours of gameplay.
Celestian Tales: Old North allows players to become part of a diverse group of young warriors in training who must learn who they are and where they stand as everyone’s skills are developed to survive the impending war with a dangerous threat from another land.
Experience six intertwining tales from the perspectives of a noble prepared to sacrifice those of lower birth for the greater good, a loyal soldier bred for the fields of battle, a prodigy in strength pushing through all obstacles by force, a knowledge-hungry explorer shackled by the chains of duty, a peasant crawling out from a life of poverty, and an outsider questioning the natural evils of humanity. Then face the cause which unites them all.
One’s truth may not be another’s. Good deeds done by someone may be perceived by another as evil. Often we see only what we want to see and believe only in what we want to believe. Which path will you follow as you journey in the Old North? Through whose eyes will you experience the events that unfold?
- Moral Confrontations – Situations are presented to the player throughout the game that tug at moral standings and beliefs.
- Unique Story – Brings a fresh approach to RPG storytelling by avoiding genre clichés in a story where players feel the weight of their character’s actions.
- Multiple Story Arcs – 6 Selectable Characters allow you to play the game from 6 different perspectives. Play through the game as all 6 characters to get the entire experience.
- Traditional RPG Gameplay – Inspired by classic JRPGs with a turn-based RPG battle system that allows players to develop a personal combat style.
- Beautiful Art – Lush hand-painted background visuals and environments with detailed emotive character portraits and animated pixel-art characters that run around the world.
- Epic Music – A sweeping score that captures the pace and emotion of the story as it unfolds.
Celestian Tales: Old North will launch on Steam, Humble Store and other major digital distribution channels for PC, Mac and Linux.
