Huge 2.6 update live, iOS coming May 14th



Super exciting news everyone! Fearless Fantasy is coming to iOS (universal iPhone/iPad app) on May 14th!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gg4Fp5Hr_E0

The game has been almost rebuilt from scratch. About two months ago we were ready to release, and then decided to redo the artwork. And the months before that Daniel spent reworking the shop, the balance, adding new gestures, and more. This a very big update.

The big update log!

GAMEPLAY

  • Complete overhaul of the trial system! This is now more skill based, more meaningful, and offers a lot more variety.
  • Custom trials for all enemies.
  • Ability trials become more complex with increasing levels.
  • Difficulty selection now only effects the complexity and difficulty of the trials.
  • Added a new trial element: The tap circle.
  • Added "dodge" effect when an attack is completely evaded (for both heroes and enemies).
  • Leon's Crimson Rush is now called Cloud Breaker and changed to a powerful AOE attack.
  • Various passive abilities and status effects have been tweaked to interact better with the trial system.
  • Enemies now don't attack without confirmation, so you can take a bite of your sandwich in-between a long series of enemy attacks.
ARTWORK

  • Completely new background graphics and world map!
  • Increased resolution for all characters.
  • Added a simple soft shadow under characters.
  • Updated a few monster designs.
BUGFIXES & GENERAL IMPROVEMENTS

  • The achievement bugs have been fixed. Most missing achievements should be awarded as soon as the eligible save slot is loaded.
  • The game now saves in-between battles. When you load a game which was interrupted during battle, it will restart from the last wave.
UI

  • Updated shop UI, with a much cleaner layout and better usability.
  • Trial elements have a much clearer look and feel.
  • Improved audio feedback.
  • Improved battle gauge, which now also shows which character is taking action and if they are blinded.
  • Colour coded hero selection markers for faster recognition.

We've also removed the challenge mode for now, it will be back in a later update.

“Fearless Fantasy Shows No Fear In Its Condensed RPG Design”
Hardcore Gamer

“It’s a strange, silly game that just so happens to also have a unique and unexpectedly challenging battle system.”
VGBlogger

“A compact adventure with a focus on turn-based skill, a notion as unique as the whole game itself.”

About This Game

  • Use gestures to score critical hits in a turn-based RPG
  • Most original character designs you’ll see this year
  • A full-on story with animated cutscenes and voice-overs
  • Upgrades and progression systems
  • Boss fights
  • RPG stuff and dances!

Fearless Fantasy strangeness drew me to it like a moth to the flame. I purchased it purely for its intriguing art style and was greeted with humor, two characters that nearly sound like Steve Blum and Mark Hamill's Joker, and a turn-based combat system based on timing and tracing.

I really like the art, especially for the monsters. They were just enjoyable to look at before I slaughtered them. The monster designs range from humorous to creepy (pay attention to their names too). The stills that were in place for the cinematics were not very interesting visually, but the humor usually takes priority during those sections.

The voice acting seems decent enough and light-hearted. Joshua Tomar kept throwing me off with his Steve Blum impression. Adam Harrington's voice kept on giving me serious Joker vibes. Both made my experience with the game even weirder.

The combat system can be difficult to master. Tracing with the mouse did not work out well for me unless I played on Casual or Normal (you can set the difficulty manually for each level). There are three characters with different specialities (damage/debuff, buffing/taunting, healing/defensive) with five different skills available for leveling up. None of them are too amazing, but it's satisfying to trace a perfectly timed path and scoring an epic or flawless rating for very high damage or bonus effects. Look at the first trailer for the game to have a fairly accurate idea of how the tracing mechanic works (you path your mouse through arrows).

Fearless Fantasy is a strange, little game that might be enjoyable for you. Let the art style consume you.

Costume Quest meets Paper Mario meets Elite Beat Agents. If this sounds good to you, read no further.

This is a tiny RPG that came out of nowhere. Surprisingly challenging and interesting battle system. Mildly throw away plot. Though its nice to see the party members adhere pretty well to the “holy trinity” Leon- the DPS, Alice - the support healer and Vonn – the Tank.

Its also a nice feature to be able to re-spec at any time with a just a right click, some battles can be tanked through while others require more.. finesse.

The whole time I was thinking of FFVIII because Leon, mixed with the timing of things increasing damage and the fact that Leon is absolutely holding a Gunblade warrants the comparison to Squall. And obviously on a different scale.

Surprisingly deep diversion.

One thought that came in my mind while playing it... how it would be to play it on phone :P

But this game got my heart. Graphics are not perfect but there is something unique in it.
Something that other games don't have. This game seems to be simple in the beginning.
BAH, its even boring... when You play on "EASY". But then one moment You realize You want something more from that game. You go back, and You start to play NORMAL, HARD. I really like the way You need to swing with Your mouse.

I wish there could be a way to train, it's so hard on HARD. 1st look - i thought of OSU :P

I love the gameplay. Its a really an original game! So hard to find those.

PS. Don't forget about GOOGLE PLAY.

When I first saw this, my reaction to the artstyle was basically "What the hell is this nonsense?" Having played it, the answer is that it's amazing nonsense in the best traditions of oldschool JRPGs, and full of hand-drawn cutscenes and fairly charming amateur voice acting for when you're not in combat.

Beyond the artstyle, Fearless Fantasy is more or less a standard JRPG with some clearly mobile-influenced elements, like the interface and being divided into short, selectable levels with three difficulty modes each. Despite its fairly short length (only about 3 hours for me, including 2 replays of every level except for the last two), it manages to fully develop all of its mechanics, the well-tuned battle system making it so every action and decision really counts by the end of the game.

The only real issue I have with Fearless Fantasy is that the gestures required for the attacks feel like they were designed for a touch interface, but the game hasn't been released on mobile or any platform that typically has a touchscreen yet. However, their website indicates they intend to release a mobile port sometime this year. As a result, while this game comes with my recommendation, I would suggest waiting for the mobile port if you have a smartphone with a decently large screen or a tablet.

(Of course, having beaten the game, I don't plan on playing another version of it. As a result, I won't be updating this if the mobile version doesn't come out or is terrible or something.)

Between the *adjective* Fantasy name and bizarre aesthetic, first impressions of this game are sure to raise eyebrows and I know it certainly made me cautious if not curious. Thankfully this isn't yet more RPG Maker garbage endlessly ♥♥♥♥ out of the Greenlight colon(y) but a quirky game that plays on cliches in a predictable but enjoyable manner.

The combat is engaging with both basic attacks and techniques/spells requiring the player to draw through an arrangement of arrows at precise times: missing results in extremely lowered damage while hitting all/mostly perfects will grant further, sometimes esssential bonuses. It often straddles a line between fun and frustrating but overall it works well, Levelling up grants you both attribute and skill points which are pretty straight forward, adding more points onto a skill will typically unlock more hits or damage and often more arrows to complicate matters.

The story is a typical save the princess and then beat up the bad guy fare but the characters are a little more aware of their situation and are either hammed up or cynical/realistic. They never quite break the 4th wall and there's nothing revolutionary about them and their motives but it's refreshing.

Despite being a three hour game it does feel like it can wear away at your patience towards the end once the QTE sequences get quite long and enemy HP balloons along with them gaining a plethora of obnoxious passive abilities (e.g. 50% less ranged or melee damage, slapping your party with a status effect or damage on death etc.). All things considered it is a neat little game and worth picking up for a couple of bucks or in a bundle.

This is Fearless Fantasy—a JRPG inspired indie game with a very unique twist on the standard turn based combat system. This game is an absolute delight! With a great soundtrack, peculiarly nice voice acting, and a fantastic slew of enemies, Fearless Fantasy should be in everyone’s Steam library.

Let me start by acknowledging the work these developers have put into this game. The duo, Enter Skies are still working on this game, as there is a mobile port on the way. And despite being released in May of this year, they still communicate with their community over on the Steam forums (much better than, say, Code Avarice have been doing for the entirety of Paranautical Activity’s existence on the platform).

The overworld is quite reminiscent of Record of Agarest War, if I’m remembering correctly. You’ve got your difficulty options going in, which will require you be precise with the aforementioned combat system. Bosses, however, have other little stipulations which may further cause you difficulty in Veteran battles. The world is absolutely psychedelic, with beautiful battlefields and some damn trippy enemies.

The combat incorporates the use of an Elite Beat Agents or Osu! Style of board which will determine whether you miss or critically harm your enemy, or fail to or critically defend against him. Epics and Flawlesses will provide you with powerful turns, while misses will result in failure. You can attempt to troll the enemy, or be trolled yourself—that’s all up to you ;). And consumables are actually useful. Well, I don’t mean to say they aren’t useless in other games, but I can’t tell you how many JRPGs I’ve played where I hoarded the hell out of potions thinking they’d be useful later on, only to end up beating the game with a sack full of vials.

With general gameplay out of the way, I’ve got to say I was absolutely charmed by this game. The cut scenes are what look to be flash animated, simple, and delightful to watch, with some decent writing and great voice acting. The voice acting is reminiscent of the Tales games to me, and the actors definitely put in a lot of effort despite this seemingly small project. Seriously, the voice acting is absolutely genuine and high quality, especially considering the quirky, humorous nature of the game!

The last thing I’ll cover is the music and sound. The opening theme was the hook which made me stop what I was watching on the other monitor, amp up the volume, and really give this game my full attention. I may be overly optimistic but everything that’s been done in this game is far from lazy, which includes the use of sound. Attacks seem powerful, and Flawlesses feel amazing when you pull them off!

This game is an absolute trip. It’s a wonderful, if short adventure. There is a very positive feel and flow to this psychedelic world, in which your progress actually means something. I had a really great time with it, and at the very cheap price point of 7.79 CAD, Fearless Fantasy is definitely a worthwhile purchase.

This game was fun
Story was fun, Alice's Voice is cute too =)
Gameplay is not so bad with the defense and offense mouse thing you cannot take your hands off for a second =o
Only real problem is at some stages, You end up being too low level and there is absolutely no way too continu
Other then to Die a few times until you Level up and then come in and Destroy them super easily with only 1 level more..
This made me waste 4 hours to just pass 3 levels
But overall other then these 3 stages i Enjoyed this Game for what it is

If it's on Sale i'd say Grab it
For afull price though not quite

Final Fantasy alike turn based combat with motion executions. It's obviously developed for phones to swipe your fingers across the screen for attack and defence moves. Enemy artstyle is good and creative but the protags feel bland and cringey, so does the forced talking sequences.

This game is unexpectedly amazing. It is weird and hilarious.

I am always happy to see an RPG that manages to be funny without being just stupid and/or vulgar.... and I cracked up the first time I selected the dance option in battle.

+ Different (casual) take on the turn-based RPG genre
+ The continuous action keeps you alert
+ Humor
+ Special powers are a joy to watch

+/- Battle system is nice but flawed, sometimes you have no clue what is happening or has happened
+/- Graphics have a certain charm but are also a bit ugly
+/- Voice acting is cheesy but fits the game

- You won't lose many battles but still; grinding isn't fun

[Rating: 71/100]

This game is amazing if you are looking for a casual RPG. Great humour and interactive gameplay keeps you entertained throughout the game. The artwork is amazing and it blends well with the story.

It's quite a short game but it's still worth the money since you can replay all the levels including the bosses. You can also easily respec your character's stats as well as their respective skills.

It can be difficult at times especially if you want to clear a stage in 3 stars. I suggest you practice your timings right because getting a flawless or epic timing is a must to survive some difficult bosses. You also need to manage your energy, so adding points on endurance and using gadgets that adds +endurance is advisable.

More energy = more skill usage = more damage

Graphics: 7 (Awesome art style which blends well with the story)
Gameplay: 7 (Intuitive battle system - timing is a must)
Replayability: 5 (Not so much, no branching story line or another reason to replay the game)
Fun Factor: 7 (Could be low if you aren't into short casual rpg games)

Thanks to you I am glued to my computer playing this game. IT'S SO GOOD.
SERIOUSLY. Sound design, Music, Monsters, Characters, Battle System... just WOW!

The 'weird' kind of look to the enemies really make the game unique!!!

The only thing i'm going to "complain", is that I am a grindy type of person, and I love to level up, a lot.
It's not a bad thing that the game doesn't have grinding! It's just a thing i really like in rpgs.

Anyway, this game gets a 912837918237 out of 10 from me.

On a last note, just so you know, I threw my money at the screen the second I saw the game.

Do not come into this game expecting the next final fantasy and you will be okay. It is more or less a straight grind of challenges of enemies. The battle system is fun and different, the characters are entertaining and the voice acting is adequate enough for the game. Its not the next big RPG but it is entertaining and fun

Fearless Fantasy is an adventure game similar to a JRPG in its combat
element. To start with, the music in this game is wonderful; it does an
amazing job of propelling the atmosphere and the combat. The art style is
distinctive, and may not appeal to everyone, but for what it is, it is well
done. The game does implement a star system to encourage replay-ability
to see how fast you can complete each level.

You have the choice of three characters with a variety of different
strengths and weaknesses. You level up abilities as a team, and each team
member has abilities that can be used to regain energy or mitigate attacks
not only to that character, but across to other characters.

The story is what ties the game together; it propels you forward, and
the cut scenes are not overdone. You can choose your difficulty level for
each mission, and the combat is done on a turn-based basis. You attack by
drawing a line, and the quality of how seamlessly you attack will affect
how much damage you do. Each ability has a unique way on how you attack,
requiring that you learn exactly what your abilities do, and think out how
you will be attacking each turn.

The game accomplishes what it set out to do very well. The story
is entertaining, and the art style is unique. The game provies incentives
to play it again through its' star system and plenty of achievements. I
enjoyed playing this game, and can easily recommend it.

This is a summary of my review video, which I encourage you to
watch if you are looking for a more in-depth review.

Beauiful artwork! It is just so charming and heart-warming; I can't really describe why!
The action turn-based battle system is fun, reminds me of the Paper Mario RPGs which I adored.
The jokes are the best kind, silly and witty!

....but really, I was BLOWN AWAY by the art! If I would make a suggestion to the dev(s), I would include a "Gallery" unlock after the game so I, and many others, can admire it :).
