41w ago - After playing the game on my PS3 for a few weeks, here is my Rainbow Moon PSN review for PS3News.com!
Rainbow Moon is a SRPG for PSN from SideQuest studios and Eastasiasoft. You play the role of Baldren who at the start of the game is cursed into a portal by his nemesis.
You find yourself in a beautiful, enchanting once peaceful land of Rainbow Moon. Unfortunately you are not the only thing that has come through the portal. The curse has unleashed hoards of monsters upon this paradise.
The people of Rainbow Moon are very weary of you at first and believe you are behind the infestation detroying there land. Your goal as Baldren is to Rid the world of monsters and find a way back home, if possible.
I started my quest on Normal difficulty and had little trouble learning what I needed in terms of strategy to win battles in this turn based grid battle system. You will meet many people along the way, some of who will join your quest after you save them from an enemy or complete a quest for them. This greatly helps...
45w ago - SideQuest Studios CEO Marcus Pukropski has confirmed that strategy PS3 RPG Rainbow Moon is hitting PSN today and has shared some new video footage below!
To quote: For a small developer like SideQuest Studios, it's really a special event when one of our games finally hits the store following almost two years of development.
We have already received amazing feedback from players in Europe, where Rainbow Moon was released a few days earlier, and we are very excited to finally bring the game to the North American PlayStation Store.
As a goodie and to further spark your interest, I have brand new stuff to show you today, including a new launch trailer and another episode of our development diary video series. I will also tell you more about Rainbow Moon's main characters.
In total there are six main characters you will come across during your journey. You start your adventure with Baldren, a classic "tank and spank" fighter and the main hero of our story.
Not far into the game you will meet Trisha, who has excellent bow skills and perfectly completes your party with her ranged attacks. Trisha can also slow down enemies and has a high speed attribute.

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...
47w 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...
