The Pale City Preview | TAY Kotaku

Peter Tieryas previews Indie RPG, The Pale City, a cerebral fantasy RPG influenced by retro JRPGs, David Lynch, the Witcher series, and even Sam Peckinpah. He also talks with designer/writer, Kyle Muntz, about the game as they explore the question, “Is grinding still an integral aspect of RPG gaming?” (Culture, Dev, Earthbound, PC, Persona 3)

Never heard about this game but it sounds interesting.

It's still early in development, but some of the ideas Kyle talked about sounded fascinating. I'm very interested in seeing what a RPG without a lot of grinding battles would be like. It's also very metaphysical so I can't wait to see how that translates to gameplay.

I've always liked the story more then fighting. Cool idea.

Same here, though I thought Persona 3 did a great job of balancing that. Pale City might take it in a completely different vein and that's also part of what interested me in this preview/interview =p
