Back in the 1980s and early 1990s, people latched onto role-playing games (or RPGs) like "Final Fantasy" and "Chrono Trigger" because they offered deeper experiences than most other video games at the time. Instead of trying to get a high score, you were playing through a story, with memorable characters and plenty of twists and turns. These games couldn't just be beaten on a weekend rental and forgotten about afterward.
A new developer, aptly named Tokyo RPG Factory, is devoted to recreating those experiences. Their first game is called "I am Setsuna," and if you have any nostalgia for classic RPGs, you should check it out immediately.
In "I am Setsuna," you play as Endir, a mercenary who is hired to kill Setsuna, a girl who is going to be sacrificed to keep the world safe from monsters. Endir instead decides to accompany Setsuna on her sacrificial journey, keeping her safe along the way.
The game takes place in a gorgeous world covered in snow. You can even try to write your name in the snow as you run from place to place.
Most of the time, you'll run around the world with two party members in tow. You'll explore towns, forests, caverns, ruins and much more on your journey.
