Based on a late 90’s comic, Battle Chasers: Nightwar takes your favorite 16-bit Role Playing Games and introduces the graphics of today. With a fully funded Kickstarter, $856,354 of the $500,000 goal, Battle Chasers: Nightwar will be coming to PC, Mac, Playstation 4 and Xbox One by the end of the year.
As you can see by the above gameplay trailer I wasn’t kidding when I said it is very reminiscent of old 16-bit RPG’s. I’m also a huge fan of game music, and the music in the video above is really good so I really hope that it’s the battle music.
If you’re not familiar with the comic, the Kickstarter page gives a quick backstory
The Grey Line. An impenetrable wall of mist hovering over the West Waters, stretching endless from north to south, and towering from ocean crest to dark sky above.
Nothing has ever come from, or survived entering, the historic monolith. The great hero Aramus felt a calling from the Grey Line and crossed, despite the dangers. And like countless warriors, vagabonds, fugitives and fortune seekers before him, never returned. Now, his daughter Gully and her unlikely band of adventurers venture into the mist to uncover her father’s mission.
Along the way they’ll meet friend and foe alike while piecing together the silent history of the Grey Line, and the dark secrets within.
