Life under the rule of the winged Skyborn race isn't so bad for Claret Spencer, the star mechanic of an independent repair shop. She can patch up just about anything...but when a certain cravat-wearing customer turns her life upside-down, she finds herself pulled into an epic, city-wide conflict that's going to take a lot more than elbow...

Skyborn is a unique story driven R.P.G. developed by Dancing Dragon Games and published by Degica. The Skyborn are a winged humanoid race that has defeated in war and consequently subjugated humankind. You take on the role of Claret Spencer, the star mechanic of an independent repair shop, who suddenly finds herself pulled into an epic city wide conflict which takes her and her friends on a journey through a tale of magic, metal and mystery as she unravels the secrets of the Skyborn. This is a R.P.G. Maker title which up to this point I had never heard of although I have played many games in the past with this same look and style. For those that don't know, R.P.G. Maker is a program that allows users to create their very own role playing games. With that said, the gripping story in this title is really well conceived and unfolds over the course of the game in unvoiced dialogue and cutscenes many times alongside gorgeous anime inspired handrawn artwork that is truly a pleasure to the eyes. There's enough intrigue, action and humor in this wonderful game to keep you consistently playing from start to finish.

As you travel through the beautiful and heavily steampunk themed world of the game, Claret and the allies that she manages to assemble along the way will be forced to do battle against the Skyborn themselves as well as a variety of other enemies and adversaries. The combat in this title, which is very fun and quite different from the typical R.P.G.'s that I tend to play, takes place in the form of the turn based J.R.P.G. battle systems similiar to many classic well known Japanese Role Playing Games like Final Fantasy and Grandia. As you win you constantly earn experience points and automatically level up your group. You also have the ability to upgrade the gear of your character and companions by purchasing, looting or crafting various weapon and armor sets. Besides the main story, Claret will meet many interesting and sometimes hilarious N.P.C.'s who will provide you with the chance to take on any number of optional sidequests. There is also an incentive to explore the world because there are many hidden items to find which can yield extra experience points and crafting materials as well as currency.

The musical score and sound effects in this title are phenomenal and fit the gameplay perfectly. Whether you are engaged in battle, leisurely strolling about or having a conversation there are tracks to suit the occasion. The world is filled with gears grinding and smokestacks puffing as one would expect in a steampunk themed game and this title does not dissapoint. I find myself listening to the classically inspired soundtrack on a daily basis as I'm logged on to Steam and will continue to do so because it's that memorable.

Discovering this game came as a huge surprise for me as I never thought that I would have enjoyed a title such as this as much as I have. Playing this game has definitely piqued my interest in the R.P.G. Maker genre. Like I stated before, this genre is completely new to me but I'm going to go out on a limb and say that this title has to be one of the most well developed and polished of them all. I constantly find myself scouring Steam every week hoping that I might one day come across another gem like this one. If you're looking for a lighthearted roleplaying game with a fantastic story, just the right amount of humor and interesting combat then look no further...Skyborn would make an excellent addition to your library and is highly recommended! As a side note, the developers have recently begun asking the Steam community what they would like in another Skyborn game so I'm crossing my fingers and hope to die that a sequel could definitely be in the works.

Skyborn is a RPG game where you will play as a Female Protagonist name Claret. I must agree that this is one of the best RPGMaker on steam, because of the easy control, Combat system, and you don't have to grind for hours to get a good gear.

Beautiful little game, takes around 5 hours to play through depending on your difficulty setting.

The idea of multiple races not getting along and a group of protagonists attempting to fix society is definitely cliche, but the game does a great job of progressing the storyline in a way that tries to deviate from it.

The artwork and gameplay itself reminded me of a Zelda/Pokemon-esque setting, and the environments you travel through are very well made. The game devs did a great job with the worldbuilding and you can feel yourself in the protagonists' shoes. The characters are also developed very well, and you can see their progressions as you complete the game.

I wasn't a big fan of the combat system, it was turn by turn and was a bit boring for me, but it's not a big complaint. I also did not like the fact that there was no map or quest guidance system, but for the most part I was able to find my way after a minute or two of looking around the map.

Overall, the pros heavily outweigh the cons. This game is simply fantastic

Despite the inherent limits of games made with RPGMaker, Skyborn is genuinely fun and it's clear that a lot of work went into making it.

The story is fairly clichè, but is told in a charming way that will still make you care. The characters are likeable. The gameplay adds a few small twists to the classic old-school RPG formula (for example, you can change the difficulty at any time and you can avoid random mook battles). The art is pretty and the music is adeguate.

One thing annoyed me: the game is not properly synchronized with Steam, so you can't take screenshots. In fact, the key that normally takes screenshots (F12) will reboot the game. Thankfully the game autosaves when you enter a new location!

Absolutely amazing game, with an early 2000s feel. Great plot and amazing sound track. I wish the game wasn't so short, for I enjoyed it thoroughly.
