Finished #ChainedEchoes and the extra side quests / rewards tree tonight. A fun game! And I much preferred it over #SeaOfStars, which I did like too. Good old RPG fun. I wish there was more to do now that my characters are maxed out, but oh well, I guess it’s time to move on. If anyone can recommend any similar games for the #switch, I’d love to hear about them! Heard good about #OctopathTraveler but it’s quite expensive, so it gotta be really good. Is it?
Is anyone else playing #SeaOfStars? I’m (guessing) I’m about halfway through it and I’m loving it.
The writing and design are so good. So much love has clearly gone into it.
Don’t overlook it because it’s retro-style and kid friendly!
Chained Echoes: A good game in desperate need of an editor (and how it fared against Sea of Stars for me) - A short review by me posted to r/jrpg
This game has the best method for traversing long distances. Get your crew in a giant stone sphere, then yell at a big rock. They'll pick you up and chuck you across the ocean to be caught by another big rock!
God this game rules #seaofstars
Rolled credits on #SeaOfStars once, now time to do the extras!
If you're wanting a physical copy of Sea Of Stars but aren't super enthused by the extra cost tied to iam8bit's exclusive version, I've seen the regular physical version for sale on Amazon now for £35 which is a much better price.
I finished #SeaOfStars on the switch yesterday. Both the first ending and the “perfect ending” after that. Great game with a story that really stayed with you! But I couldn’t help wanting more freedom in terms of travel, dialog choices or quests. Having asked around a little here on fedi, it seems like #ChainedEchoes might be just that game, so that’s what I’m playing next. But first for a break to tend to my side projects for a week or two.
Having kept watch on two sick kids today, I didn’t have the energy to hack on anything this evening. Played some more #SeaOfStars though. On the last few chapters now. It’s still good, but getting a little repetitive. Really wish they’d worked more on the RPG aspects. Getting to distribute skills on level ups doesn’t feel like it really matters that much, and the school of “magic” each character has is pretty much what determines the outcome of fights. The story is great though.
All three Sea of Stars soundtrack discs are on bandcamp here:
Playing #SeaOfStars on #NintendoSwitch and it's quite fun! I wasn't following along too much in the story starting out, but it really grows on you. While I would wish for some more depth in the #RPG elements, it's also quite relaxing being able to put it down for some time and picking it up whenever I have some time to spare. Work/family compatible!
