Why not sign up for a (free) account?
I've got the special edition pre-ordered. I never did play the demo, but it looks like a game I'd really enjoy.

Huh, strange to think there wasn't already a thread for this game before just recently. But yeah, game looks pretty awesome. I've got the Special Edition version pre-ordered because....well, a fool and his money are soon parted. Such is the way of the world.

But whatever, that diorama box is too awesome-looking to pass up.

Strong demo. I hope the final game delivers in terms of story and character; I felt Olberic's chapter was a bit dull, but Primrose's story was very compelling.

Everything else, particularly the visuals, battle system and sound, were rock solid.

Could someone who has the ability to do so remove the word "Project" from this game's title in the database?

Been playing the Prologue Demo and man am I getting more and more eager to play this when it comes out next month.

Yeah, I've already preordered mine and have subsequently stopped playing the demo so I can take my time more when the game comes out.

The MUSIC in this game is GREAT!

Playing the demo. It's very charming.

Finished a prologue scene for Alfyn. How do I switch (pun) to a new story on the same save file? I can't seem to select them on the overworld map.

I'm still a bit worried about how this game fits together with the selectable characters and their narratives. I haven't been able to get through a JRPG in many years despite really loving the genre in the 90's, so I hope it's different with this one. It does seem like an ideal bed game to play for awhile before sleeping.

Doesn't seem too different from Final Fantasy VI to me, just that the characters start off more closed off from the others, or something.

Go find another one of the characters in their respective town and talk to them.

Just put in my pre-order on Amazon. Super excited.

Ok thanks !

I'm finding that so far the random battles are not as frequent which I like - id rather Chrono style but Im enjoying what I've played so far.

Somebody on Reddit pointed out that it might be cool to play an RPG that is a collection of short stories... and I'm already pretty sold on the combat, so yeah. I'm definitely going to give it a try.

Square did that back in the 90's with Live a Live, but those short stories weren't linked to each other, I don't think. Seemed like a cool game though, with some wild west scenario, a samurai story and what not.

Seiken Densetsu 3 does this a bit. You can pick 3 of 6 different characters, so the game will start differently, but I think eventually converge into the same path.

I caved and ordered the 4-CD soundtrack along with the game...
07/08/18, 07:30   
I don't like this style of RPG but dang if I'm not interested. I keep hoping my wife will buy it so I can watch at least. Looks so cool, and unique.

Played some of the demo today, and I'm really enjoying it.

...uh oh.
07/09/18, 03:20   
I've been champing at the bit for this game lately...very excited! I've already hit the 3 hour mark with my demo, starting with Ophilia and progressing clockwise towards Cyrus and Tressa.

In fact, I'm so certain that I'll enjoy one aspect of this game in particular--the soundtrack--that I've already imported the full CD set alongside the game. Mmm~

I don't know if anyone has been waiting for reviews but they're out now.

It's sitting around a mid 8, which is pretty great.
