When I see an Indie game in development there are times when my eyes light up with joy. That joy comes from the expectation of playing something not only fun but unique in its own way. Most Indie games offer their own taste of who they are or how they see games. That might sound odd or even trivial to some but for me it puts a nice stamp on the game. When I found Koruldia Heritage I knew immediately I wanted to see more. The pixel art RPG gives us a look into an alien world set with puzzles and battles for us to overcome. With a narrative storyline and some turn-based combat thrown in, this is a must talk about.
I started to compare Koruldia Heritage to other games that I had played recently such as Moonlighter, I am Setsuna and Anodyne and as I watched the trailer for the third time I noticed this game has a variety of elements that I love. The characters appear to go from the pixel art style to an almost hand drawn style in different scenes and it’s done in a story type way to keep you immersed in the game.
We can also acknowledge that the developers put in the work when it comes to background and detail. There is one screen in the game where you appear to be at an old house location and all the surroundings are stunningly gorgeous. I wanted to know what was going on in this part of the story as the character moves around searching for things. That is when you know you have something special on your hands when a snippet from a trailer has you intrigued.
From what I can tell the indie title will be a lot about exploring with its “Metroidvania” like gameplay mixed in with battles that will apparently impact the story. Ok, so your decisions have consequences and can lead to different paths in the game? Well that sounds like you will get more than one play through if you so wish. Doesn’t get much better if you ask me. Exploring an open world with dungeons, items, puzzles, secrets and a plethora of enemies, how could you not get excited about this game? I want to know more about the main character and his loyal companion Korumon who apparently questions humanity’s heritage.
Koruldia Heritage is currently on Kickstarter with no set release date. They hope to bring the game to not only PC but consoles as well. I for one have my fingers crossed it makes it to all platforms so I can enjoy this RPG game that was inspired by classics like, Final Fantasy and Castlevania.
