New Indie RPG Cris Tales Lets You Travel Through the Past, Present, and Future

By Ethan Anderson,
Cris Tales is a new indie title from Modus Games inspired by classic JRPGs. In order to end the rule of an evil empress and prevent a cataclysm, the heroine Crisbell and her allies must journey through time. In order to complete this quest, you'll be observing the past, making choices in the present, and witnessing their consequences in the future all at the same time on one screen.

The game's story will take players to five different regions that range from the majestic vistas of Crystallis to the squalid slums of Saint Clarity. While adventuring, Crisbell's party will be engaging in turn-based combat in which time altering magic can be used to change enemies' timelines. This mechanic will change attributes and advantages depending on a foe's placement in time, adding a layer of strategy to battles. Beyond the combat, the party's actions can have weighty consequences that affect both gameplay and which of the game's branching endings you may receive.

Join Crisbell on a trip through time to save the land when Cris Tales launches next year.

We don't have them yet, but we'll publish a story as soon as we pick up the Cris Tales achievements.
