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.

If RPGMaker games don't scare you and you like RPGs, try this. Interesting story, funny characters. Downside? It's too short.

This game reminds me of classic rpgs like final fantasy 4 and etc , it revolves about the story of a young mechanic who suddenly gets her life turn around when she loses her home , her job and her freedom and has several encounters with the skyborns the superior race or so they say.
Enemy encounters are shown on the map so you can either skip them or fight them all for the enjoyement of fighting hard enemies , there's an arena and secret bosses to fight which are quite difficult to beat specially the one near the end of the game , you can also advance classes with two branches.
This game will get you in one or another way , either because of the character arts , deep story involving the true of the races , or even just the nostalgia of this kind of games.
Buy it if you like rpgs , but might want to wait for a sale
