You like tasty PS1-era RPGs with great battle mechanics, giant swords and a Final Fantasy feel? Say hello the the big and beautiful indie RPG TBT: The Black Tower.
This has such a Final Fantasy 7 vibe! Wow... I'll be keeping my eye on this game for sure. Very promising early work.
What is promising about this? All I saw was a dude running around and some dialog.
I agree with the sentiment, or the lack of it, since I didn't really see anything to excite me.
It's not about that, it's the style in which it's presented. Look at the backgrounds when he enters the town. The lighting, the way things move, the blue text boxes that come up. It's all very reminiscent of FFVII. Having beaten FFVII many, many times, this was apparent to me the second I saw it.
yeah the vibe was very ff7 ish but that really doesn't say anything as it also didn't show much of anything. wait an see approach is all you can do as you already know prototype can change drastically good or bad
I love PS1 RPGs, and yes I want this game
Well colour me interested...
i cant find that one in my crayon box.
Hmmm,not sold but very interested.
*Smacks Wada in the back of the head. HARD!* THAT! THAT IS WHAT YOU SHOULD HAVE BEEN DOING ALL THIS CONSOLE GENERATION - YOU IDIOT!! *SMACK!* [email protected] Not like he's made any, just spends it, so I guess you're right. But I'm pretty sure he'll notice this purple beauty from the THQ sale.
You better be smacking him with wads of money. That's all he knows how to respond to lol!
I was going to post something like this. PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THIS SQUARE-ENIX! THIS IS WHAT WE WANT!
the art/color gives me a ff7 ni no kuni vibe
Other than the fact the guy runs weird, I could totally get into a game like this Looks a little bit Shadow hearts/Final fantasy VII like, which is cool
You think he runs/walks weird check out the women on the right at 0:45 lol
What about the guy above at 0:45 Does a little bit of a moonwalk thing ...then again at 0:52
Hahaha that is actually hilarious. Especially with the crazy music playing in the background. Everyone looks like their moonwalking or looking like they've had too many beers. What a strange town.
Just like old times. Walking around like a blind pervert rubbing on everyone. Leave it to the French to bring back this beloved genre.
But this is an indie title years after the fact of FF7. If Square had been more focused, improved upon instead of abandoned the mechanics after FF9, what they could have done would have likely been leaps and bounds beyond the demo above.
slowly starts pulling out wallet. I would give a few bucks to this game on Kickstarter if someone wants to give me a link to you know....help with the cause. Oh I see. May will open up a kickstarter for it. Do your part people and help them out. They've clearly made games before. Looking forward to this indie game.
Should have been how Final Fantasy VII looked dammit.
No. Just no. The 2012 Ford Mustang did not come before the 1908 Model T.
sigh* Obviously I meant the remake.
Then you should have just said "The Remake".
Yeah I know :(
WTF! this is FFVII w/o the steampunk setting & different story/chars o.o The devs behind this must really love FFVII, this looks very interesting but I want first to see a video with a few battles & learn more about the story/lore before I get all excited.
FF7 style oh yeah!
Looks way better than FF7
Honestly it just looks like Final Fantasy VII if it had been made by a bunch of amateurs. Nevertheless, this is more or less what I'd like a remake to be like, I'd imagine it'd obviously a lot better than this of course.
This is a prototype. It's not even an alpha game. This is a concept more or less. The reason it's not even ready for a kickstarter yet is because they don't have a solid game to show just yet. Give it time... It's not going to look pretty right now.
@ (0.35) just a bit of a ripoff of the slums and tiffa's bar from FFvii
Looks cool but that´s about it.
Quite technically impressive for an amateur project but it will not work as an actual game since there's zero imagination and creativity there, spiky haired guy with a huge sword on his back walking around a slum to clunky robot funk music. If you want to create the next Final fantasy 7 you create a game with the same surprising depth, originality and heart that blew people away when FF7 was released you don't just take Final fantasy 7 and change a few colours and street names around. None of the things you're ripping off were the reason people loved Final fantasy, people loved it for the fact that it wasn't just ripping something off and was actually a work of passion. Edit - in fact. After I posted this I had to go read the plot synopsis to check that this wasn't actually a fanfic game about Zack the SOLDIER from FF7 and I'd just been ragging on it for nothing. Turns out, nope it's not. Seriously guys, looks like it could be fine technically but you really really need someone in there with some creative ideas.
