I absolutely recommend the game, this is amazing work for a game on RPGMaker engine. What makes it special from number of other RPGM games? Well, bunch of nice things.
+ Skyborn presents you a rather deep world, with background story, interracial conflict.
+ Unlike most of RPGM games, Skyborn is set in steampunk setting.
+ Game is nicely balanced between storytelling and fighting. That means you do need to fight, but it's not too frequent.
+ Game has implemented mouse controls. Mouse is fully operational and working for UI and movement control. No other RPGM games can offer you this.
+ Crafting and upgrading mechanics without grind.
+ Game encourages explorers with free extra EXP and useful items.
+ Class speciality upgrades, which allow you put more strategy in fights. However there is an Ultimate Class for each character
.Now what can keep you from buying it:
- This is a j-rpg game. That means turn-based battles, mostly repetitive fights. Some of enemies will be very hard to defeat, until you discover their weaknesses. Sometimes it's oddly balanced, for example I couldn't kill one optional boss in the end, but easily defeated final boss.
- Game comes without Steamworks support. That means no Cloud sync and no Achievements (which could be good)
- Plot doesn't have open choices and has only one ending. It's good for a story, but nowadays most games feature multiple endings.
Still so good.
