It's an exciting time to be a game developer, as modern technology and a more accessible industry allow people of all walks of life to try their hand at pursuing their passion. This is a win for gamers, too, as it allows us the opportunity to try all sorts of new experiences and clever riffs on old ones. Enter Untold Story, a new 8-bit JRPG from Candlelight Studios.
Built using many of limitations of the NES and clearly inspired by the many RPGs that populated it, Untold Story aims to deliver that same retro experience, but with modern game design philosophies. It's a tough line to walk, but studio lead Josh Temblett seems sure that he can strike the right balance.
