Skyborn is a simple 2D RPG reminiscent of 16-bit era JRPGs. The protagonist is Claret Spencer, a mechanic who gets caught up in a rebellion against the titular Skyborn, a winged humanoid race persecuting humans and, more prominently, the so-called "half-breed" crosses of humans and Skyborn.
The story and characters are...simplistic, and if you play the game for them, you will probably be horribly disappointed. The production (visuals, audio) are nice, but nothing particularly noteworthy. Any saving grace would have to come from the gameplay...and that, in my experience, has been hit-and-miss.
There was clearly attention paid to gameplay details, which I can respect. The classic RPG situation where three spells are useful and 50+ are useless is generally avoided. Some exploration is offered without being annoying, and a lot of weaponry and crafting options are available. On the other hand, very little explanation is given on matters like the str/agi/int stats, and enemy difficulty spikes horribly towards the end of the game without warning. Not to mention the relatively short length of the whole thing...
I can only recommend this game on sale, if
any of this interests you to begin with. At full price, there's certainly a lot more for your money available.
