This item will be released on 31st July, 2021
Cris Tales is a gorgeous, indie love letter to classic JRPGs with a new perspective. Peer into the past, act in the present, and watch as your choices dynamically change the future - all on one screen as you play!
Join the newly awakened Time Mage Crisbell and her fantastical companions in a fantasy world facing a grim future. The powerful Time Empress and her forces threaten to bring about a cataclysm tearing apart Crystallis and the other four Kingdoms of the region.
To stop the Time Empress and rewrite the future of the land, you will embark on a harrowing journey across the kingdoms, meeting and recruiting powerful allies to aid in the fight. Master their abilities and Crisbell's unique Time Magic to overcome mighty foes - send them into the past to face their weaker, younger selves, send a foe to a future where they've succumbed to all the damage of a poison applied in the present, or create your own strategies in this one-of-a-kind combat system.
As Crisbell's powers grow, you will make choices with far-reaching consequences for the people you meet - consequences that will impact the world you'll experience in real-time throughout your journey. Every character, NPC, enemy, and even Kingdom has a past, a present and one or more futures, depending on your actions! Beautifully hand-drawn 2D art is animated frame by frame to bring the branching possibilities to life across more than 20 hours of gameplay.
Experience a unique combination of branching stories, innovative combat, and classic RPG excitement in Cris Tales' exciting and unforgettable exploration of how our actions echo through time.
