Bevontule: Altar of Roots – a jaw-dropping turn-based RPG inspired by Final Fantasy, Vagrant Story, and Parasite Eve – is now on Kickstarter seeking $50,000 in completion funds 🙂
Featuring a deep storyline and tactical turn-based combat, Bevontule will offer backers massive environments to explore, quirky characters to encounter, and plenty of open-world adventures in a state-of-the-art blend of Eastern and Western RPGs.
Multithreaded Games has already raised more than 20% of the original funding goal. The campaign is set to end on February 28. If funded, Bevontule is expected to be in backers’ hands by March 2019.
Bevontule takes place on a vast and isolated land mass surrounding a central ocean known as the Inner Sea. Discovered some 1,500 years ago by a number of refugees fleeing their own war-torn homeland, it quickly becomes clear that despite its welcoming appearance, Onich harbors dark and deadly secrets that were left alone … presumably for good reason.
Join a diverse cast of characters and stave off the looming calamity about to hit this troubled continent – or unwittingly hasten its arrival. Explore a beautiful open world inhabited by war-ravaged nations, rebel factions … and a far more insidious enemy. To fully understand the existential threat presently posed to Onich – and perhaps humanity itself! – you must traverse expansive plains, aid survivors in ruined towns, explore dangerous caverns, and safely navigate forbidden ruins where decaying structures are the least of your worries.
The journey ahead will not be easy: Ferocious and highly-intelligent creatures – from colossal dragons to deadly insects – roam the land and will attack at a moment’s notice. Take down enemies in tactical, turn-based combat where every move (and every second) counts. One misstep could be your party’s undoing; intricate planning and execution are vital for survival. Unlock, learn, and equip hundreds of combat skills, attribute bonuses, and world-based buffs. Need a break from the main campaign? Take on numerous side quests to face optional bosses and discover some fun minigames!
Available as a playable demo through the Kickstarter campaign, Bevontule: Altar of Roots has been featured in a number of outlets – including The Gaming Ground, Geeky Gadgets, The Geekiary, and RPG Codex.
