Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an RPG inspired by the classic console greats, featuring deep dungeon diving, turn-based combat presented in a classic JRPG format, and tons of secrets, story and randomly-generated replay goodness. The game is being created by ex-Vigil Games veterans, including two of Vigil's co-founders, Joe Madureira and Ryan Stefanelli.

  • Plan for survival. Choose three of the heroes you've unlocked, fill your travel backpack with items from your stash, make sure you've chosen the best equipment and abilities for each hero... and then strike out.
  • Explore an overworld presented in classic form, peppered with hidden dungeons, rare bosses and randomly appearing characters.
  • Old-school combat inspired by the console RPG greats, with a unique two-tiered mana system and turn-based initiative featuring random buffs and debuffs on initiative slots.
  • Action oriented, randomly-generated dungeons loaded with traps, puzzles and secrets. Use each hero's unique dungeon skills to survive!
  • Non-linear story driven by the discovery of lore on items, landmarks and secret elements in the world. Discovering these will both provide deeper insight into the mysterious Lost Vale, and also reward lore points, which are used to upgrade the heroes' different abilities.
  • Truly key story moments will be depicted in gorgeous, traditional 2D animation from Powerhouse Animation Studios. For these, sit back and enjoy.

Debo de dejar de ver su pagina, y todo lugar donde aparezcan o corro el riesgo de comprarlo, después de todo 30 dolares no son demasiado dinero; y así consigo probar la beta y tener la espada de War.
I must stop seeing your page, and wherever they appear or run the risk of buying it, after all $ 30 are not too much money; and so I get to test the beta and have the sword of War

This looks like a really nice RPG, combining aspects of puzzling and open world on a diablo style and a battle style reminiscent of Valkyrie Profile, while having really original graphics and really neat animations, I hope this game gets the recognition it deserves! Looking forward to the complete game

I'm tempted to throw money at this as I grew up with every game mentioned (Secret of Mana, Chrono and Phantasy Star 1 + FF6===my childhood). Artstyle looks great as does the game engine. Hopefully there is lots of customization and items to find.

My question is...when is beta abouts? I saw release date is over a year form now which is my only apprehension from giving money to this now vs later. Knowing 'a' beta is soon though would be great, or is it still alpha?
