Description
Release date: Q2 2017
A soldier flees a secluded island controlled by powerful deities, consumed in an endless war with one another. Ian sets out for a peaceful life, but finds his past can't be escaped so easily. The war soon catches up with him and threatens the entire planet. With the world's balance at stake, he teams up with others fighting their past to restore peace at any cost.


The Game

A faceless soldier, a warrior, a cyborg, and an oracle... while it may sound like an introduction to an awkward bar joke, it's not. It's the cast of, The Island of Eternal Struggle--a 2D turn-based RPG developed by Wimbus Studios. The game places heavy emphasis on battle-system interaction, deep character-class customization, and a rich storyline with humor and depth.

- Classic turn-based RPG gameplay, but with unique and exciting "action commands"--enabling interactive and fast-paced combat sequences.

- Job class based character growth. 24 different jobs, including Booze Hound, Discomancer, and Otaku! Over 500 different skills and abilities.

- A unique "Soul Slot" system, allowing each character to have a different loadout of skills and combat bonuses.

- 2D visual style inspired by the classics of the genre.

- A lovingly crafted soundtrack including live guitar, banjo, and glockenspiel--to analog synths.

- Mini-games? Of course!

- Unconventional enemies--from adult mutant turtles and balding eagles, to bears on roller-blades wielding switchblades.

- If you want to save, talk to a hobo.

I got a chance to try out the combat system at this year's Too Many Games convention, and I was really impressed! I'm not an expert in RPG style gameplay, but the devs walked me through how it worked, and I had the feel for it in no time. It's well designed, intuitive, and fun! The visuals are excellent, too. I think this is going to be my first turn based RPG, and I'm looking forward to release!

I've met the developers at the TooManyGames convention, which they've attended for several years, and the game is further along every time I see it. The script is fantastic, the mini games are fun and clever, and there couldn't be nicer people behind it. Please rest assured that this is not some thrown-together cash grab; this is a labor of love that has been lovingly refined over the course of years, and will be well worth your money!

I got the chance to play this at the PTW2016 kickoff arcade, The game has such a great sense of humor, and still provides the intricacies and strategy of a good turn based RPG.
