76w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has detailed the Weapon Crafting System for the new PSN RPG Rainbow Moon in a video (below) today for fans.
To quote: Less than two weeks until our new RPG Rainbow Moon hits PlayStation Store!
Today, we're going to share more details with you, along with another entry from our Dev Diary video series.
Previously, we talked about Rainbow Moon's battle system and the game's character development system. Now I'm going to tell you more about all the weapons and equipment that you can acquire in Rainbow Moon, as well as how to improve them through the crafting system.
The six characters that you'll come across during your journey can be equipped with five different equipment types: weapons, hats, body armor, amulets and rings.
All these items have their own attributes, and some even have built-in passive skills or conditions. In true RPG fashion, equipping better gear will make your characters more powerful during battles.
You'll start your adventure with very basic gear – just enough to take on the game's weaker creatures. As you progress through the story, you'll be able to purchase new gear from merchants. And if you're...
76w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has announced today that PS3 RPG Rainbow Moon rises on PSN this July 10th alongside some new video footage below!
To quote: Rainbow Moon is our upcoming role-playing game for PS3. It's been nearly two years since we started working on Rainbow Moon, so we can hardly believe that the game releases on PSN in just over two weeks – it'll hit PlayStation Store on July 10th for $14.99.
If you're a PlayStation Plus subscriber, you'll enjoy a 20% discount, paying just $11.99, for the first two weeks after launch.
The last time we spoke, I explained Rainbow Moon's battle system. This time, I'd like to give you some insight into the game's character development system.
Many gamers think that character development is just about battling and leveling up. While that's partly true in Rainbow Moon, there's a lot more that can make or break a game.
Aside from RPG standards like experience points and gaining levels, in Rainbow Moon you can earn a resource called "Rainbow Pearls." You can exchanged these for improved character attributes or increased health and magic limits.
This system gives you a certain freedom in how you'd like...
84w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has posted up a new video trailer today of PlayStation Network title Rainbow Moon for PS3 fans below!
To quote: Last November, I had the opportunity to introduce you to Rainbow Moon, our upcoming strategy RPG for PS3.
Since then, we have received amazing feedback from all of you. In the lead up to the release, it gives me great pleasure to tell you more about the game's battle system.
You also have the chance to be one of the first to watch the Rainbow Moon trailer.
Although much of Rainbow Moon's appeal is in its exploration and character development, the battles are what matter most.
Akin to our Soldner-X game series, we have taken an innovative approach by combining classical elements with new ideas. An example is the triggering of battle encounters. Random encounters? Yes or no? Well, how about both?!
In Rainbow Moon you will find foes roaming the surface of the planet and have a chance to battle in additional random encounters. The latter, however, are 100% optional and can be disregarded if you so decide.
All battles take place on grid-sized maps and are completely turn based. That's right, just like the good...
110w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has announced today that PSN-exclusive strategy RPG Rainbow Moon is coming in 2012.
To quote: Today I am telling you about what we've been working on with our publishing partner eastasiasoft during roughly the last year and a half.
No, it's not another shooter, but it's once again a very classical genre that we are bringing back to life on the PlayStation 3 in 2012.
Our latest creation is titled Rainbow Moon. It's a strategy role-playing game (or, for short, "SRPG" with a strong emphasis on exploration, character development and turn-based battles. This genre is one of my personal favorites that I enjoyed playing most when I was growing up (and still enjoy a lot now as far as time allows).
I can promise you that Rainbow Moon is going to be massive, and it's got all the features that you want from a traditional RPG. First of all, it will take you around 30 hours just to play through the main story mode, but that's far from all what the game has to offer. Your playtime can be extended to 100 hours or longer if you want to complete all side quests and achieve full character development.
What else can you expect from Rainbow Moon? A classic isometric open world,...
