This week marks the launch of Tales of Valiance: First Light, which is an upcoming game in the genre by Talen James and Darian Bower.

They're tired of visual novels with samey plots and characters and are looking to spice things up with Tales of Valiance. Have they succeeded? It's far too early to tell, but here's what can be gathered from perusing the campaign page thus far."
