    Sounds like Chrono Trigger to me, and I like some Chrono Trigger.

    Looks very promising, not to mention extremely beautiful. I'll be looking forward to trying it out in 2022.

    Surprised me that these are the guys that made The Messenger, one of 2018's indie hidden gems, IMO.

    They've got Mitsuda on board too. Very impressive. Glad to be a backer.

    The only thing that ever needed modernizing in JRPGs was the user interface.

    I'm not worried, The Messenger was a great game and this looks to be a great looking Chrono Trigger-like. It's not like CT was especially hardcore or anything, so I doubt this will be incredibly off-putting. I just chalk that quote up to marketing speech.

    Character concept art looks good, but I'm not a big fan of its pixel art counterpart.

    Promising game, though.

    I liked everything I saw in this video.

    Combat looks cool, or at least as long as you don't mind some timed stuff and I don't, the AP system seems to be about the same as in FF : 4 heroes of light/Paper Sorcerer (Bravely Default too, I guess? I have not played it) and I love that.

    Exploration on a small scale seems to be good too with many spots of interest, levers, small ways you can miss and especially spots to climb and such which makes it seem like exploring could be really satisfying, and that's without even mentioning the moon power to use to uncover more spots which likely won't be the only one.

    Finally the visuals and animations are amazing, I wish many actual high profile JPRGs just looked like this.

    This keeps popping up in the ads on my social media. Looks like a solid game but I have little interesting playing this type of game anymore. I'll take the notifications anyways in case something I see her can change my mind.

    From the video, the combat looks incredibly slow because of the animations. Hope this gets rectified.

    "skill rather than statistics. That being said, you will very much be leveling up, increasing your stats"

    Then, why have stats? If they don't matter no need for them.

    Just saw the Steam page for this game and it looks like it has potential. Posting on the thread to reserve a front row seat in case it's good.
