New Trailer for Arcadian Atlas

New Trailer for Arcadian Atlas

Earlier today, Twin Otter Studios released a trailer for their upcoming tactical RPG Arcadian Atlas. The game looks gorgeous, with superb pixel art that drips with nostalgia from the 90’s and classical Tactical RPG’s:

Arcadian Atlas is a 2D isometric tactical RPG about the choices people make in pursuit of the things they love, and the havoc it wreaks on a kingdom.

Watch your footing & mind the strategic vantage points as you traverse the richly detailed pixel art world of Arcadia — A turned back or tumble on the battlefield could cost you a friend’s life. Let the moody jazz soundtrack carry you through a thought provoking & ruthless story of love, deceit, murder, companionship & war. Meant to be a modern loveletter to classic tactical RPGs, Arcadian Atlas was designed from the ground up to incorporate more challenging battle strategies, new & balanced job classes, and more cutthroat plot twists that’ll leave you wishing you hadn’t gotten so attached to “that character.”

Featuring dynamic job classes, a rich character driven narrative, strategic grid-based battles and a jazz infused soundtrack, Arcadian Atlas is a lushly handcrafted 2D isometric tactical RPG that takes the rich history of the genre and makes it modern.
