    While browsing TIGForums I found this very nice looking game by the one(s?) who made Valdis Story. While the graphics look nice the mix between Final Fantasy Tactics and Culdcept Saga of all things was pretty interesting.


    Here's the latest blog post that describes the game better than I can:


    Here's another with music and some .gifs showing the whole UI:

    Development on our SRPG, Fae Tactics is still coming on strong! So strong, that I forget to update you here on the Endlessfluff blog. If you follow us on twitter you might already know this but…

    Fae Tactics now has music and it’s the beautiful sounds of SAM ENGLISH!
    It has been a treat to work with Sam so far. His style and melodies are a perfect match for the style we’ve been developing for this project. (we really enjoyed Vagante’s OST. Check that out ) I knew we’d be thrilled if we could hire him as composer but I didn’t anticipate how pumped I’d get after hearing each new track he creates. Things are brewing here in our little office… good things, highly inspired work. I wish I was 100 times faster so we could share the whole game the way we envision it with you, but quality takes time and effort. For now, why don’t you listen to Sam’s tracks: Wasteland Battle while observing some new screens.

    Aquatoise has quite the helpful passive ability!

    So what are we shooting for at the moment? We are currently working toward finishing the first 1/4th of the game. At this stage we are having fun by adding in things we didn’t plan for but we are also carefully keeping the entire game and its needs in mind. We can’t afford for the entire game to take too long in production so we would like to finish this first chunk of the game in the coming months. That sounds like a long time for this first chunk of the game but it includes a lot of preliminary programming framework and design passes. These things take a lot of tweaking. We anticipate development will go faster as we move forward.

    Cheers!

    It's interesting that they don't use the same art style as in Valdis Story, they both look very good.
    The UI is pleasant, very fluid and dynamic, I wonder if they'll manage to make something fun with no menu, that's an interesting choice.

    I can't wait to play the game.

    It'll be interesting to see if what they are going for will work or not.

    One sure thing is that the OST will be top notch, they launched a Kickstarter specially to get the composer on Valdis Story, and the OST of Valdis Story is one of the recent best.

    My bad, I completely misread here and thought they managed to get the same composer, I actually played Dungeon Hearts that he worked one but I can't really remember anything about the music.

    I want a Valdis Story sequel/prequel. But this game looks great, too.

    Some of the sprites are a little too cutesy for my taste, but they're certainly of a high quality regardless, and the gameplay looks and sounds great. I'll keep an eye on this
