Noahmund, the new JRPG from Estudio Àbrego, has launched on Steam! Inspired by Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy Tactics, Noahmund’s painterly visuals, node-based exploration system, and atmospheric soundtrack are sure to impress RPG fans eager for a chess-like challenge that blends real-time action with a tactical grid.
From its humble beginnings as a Kickstarter project, Noahmund has already garnered two awards at Málaga’s Gamepolis festival – “Best Audio” and a Special Jury Prize presented by industry luminary Gordon Walton. The game was also accepted into the prestigious Square Enix Collective.
The developers have released the official launch trailer featuring the English-language version of the game:
A World in Flames
The land of Feros is at war. Galina Angstroud, an agent of Shinn, is the only one willing to search and destroy Salaber’s most powerful weapon – deployed months ago with deadly results. As Feros burns, Gallina begins a journey for truth and salvation accompanied by her loyal guardian, Berani Valenti – fighting against the odds to end the war between the North and South … and save lives.
Borrowing from classic strategy RPGs, Noahmund’s exploration and battle systems feature highly detailed 3D characters and hand-drawn environments. A tactical grid system makes it straightforward for players to mount frontal attacks, execute flanking maneuvers, strike from a distance, and even set up traps! However, decisions must be made quickly: Combat takes place in real time, so one wrong move can easily turn the tide of battle.
Noahmund was accepted by ICEX (España Exportación e Inversiones) as the entity’s third Spanish-made game to receive PR and marketing support in the United States from Novy Unlimited.
Available on Steam (Windows only), Noahmund has been featured in a number of outlets – including Nintendo Everything, TechRaptor, Hardcore Gamer, Flickering Myth, RPGSite, and IndieGames.
