Once I had a love and it was a gas
Taking place in a fictional mid-20th-century European country that’s being ruled by a tyrant, you get to play as a girl called Kristal, who is a girl of glass. She’s struggling with all of the things you’d expect someone to be struggling with in a coming of age story, but I’ve not played the game and can’t tell you if it’s going to be a revolutionary story or not.
What I can tell you is that it looks really pretty, and has a big Child of Light energy to it. The game blends point and click adventuring, the narration of a visual novel as well as the narrative choice that come with that style of game, and turn-based combat. For me, that last one makes this very much worth paying attention to. I enjoy a chilled out game, don’t get me wrong, but I like it when mechanics appear in games I wouldn’t expect them in.
You get to gain new allies and unlock new skills as you go, and I’m always here for some good turn-based combat. It also says that the combat is like a puzzle, and I love me some good strategic combat too. It’s definitely an interesting one on the surface, but you don’t have to just take it on face value. That’s right, as with all the coolest things in life, you can try it out for free thanks to the demo up on the website.
