Style & Aim of Valcarta:
Valcarta is a unique piece that brings the look and feel of SNES RPGs to the PC. The Valcarta series, and Valcarta I itself aim to deliver an overly unique feel to the player through complex storytelling. Our main mechanism for this is the "split-path". Valcarta doesn't contain dialogue splitting or speech choices like most games of this age. It does however contain two entirely different stories; two entirely different ways to view the world of Valcarta I and two different outcomes which will carry over to the next game, Valcarta II: Awakening.
Valcarta aims to provide the user with a unique experience that isn't found in today's game market.
Valcarta captures and expresses itself through old style RPGs, giving an epic feel through 2D sprites.

Rise of the Demon is the first chapter of a 'storyline' game series that spans 5 chapters titled: Valcarta. The Valcarta series will be built on a premise of heavy storytelling in a split path fashion. There will be a minimum of 2 paths in every game in which the player can play and experience the events that will unfold. Each path will provide the character with different pieces of the puzzle to put together to allow the user to experience a full view of the events unraveling within the world. Rise of the Demon, the first Valcarta title series, follows Valak, a young man that has no family to speak of and a blurry past. He has spent most of his 'youth' in the central province known as Drachell working as the 'protector' of a small town. At the beginning of the game, Valak must make a choice that will change not just his fate but also the fate of Drachell and Valcarta.

Key Features

  • Split Path Storytelling: Experience the story and events of Rise of the Demon as they unfold from two different perspectives.
  • Old School RPG Action: Side-view battle system, an immersive world and story, unique characters with their own personal history, quests and more.
  • Unique Game Play: Both paths of the game play differently, with new characters and new skills unique to each path
  • Unique Fighting Styles: Each playable character has a different plethora of skills giving you the ultimate strategic advantage over your foes!
  • Life Filled World: Experience and explore Drachell, a small isolated province on Valcarta. Talk with NPCs, learn about your fellow companions, the races within Drachell and more.
  • Explore & Discover: There is over 15 hours of game play for each path of the game, totaling over 30 hours! Discover secret quest lines for your allies and secret lore as you try to restore peace to Drachell.
  • Finely Crafted Time Line: Experience a split path adventure like never before. The events of Drachell will unfold, regardless of which path is being played. Follow Valak through the telling of the Dark or Light path of the game and see the detail within the common time line.
  • Lorebook: The Valcarta series is based on the telling of lore between a Loresmen and his daughter, the apprentice. In doing so, each game will yield a new chapter of the Lorebook, for fans!

yeah it is a bit expensive, too many games of this type come out therefor it has to be something really special to justify a price like that.

I love these types of games. Reminds me of the final fantasy series of old. BUT for only 20 hours of gameplay in part 1 and it's 15$ is way too expensive. especially when part 2 is almost finished, and there is no part 3,4, or 5. at 15$ per episode that's 75$ altogether assuming you even like part 2,3,4, and 5. Better wait for a major sale even at 50% off they are still making alot of money when u factor in all the episodes per customer. The engine is RPG maker VX. I can go to steam and download that program and make this game and sell it here for peanuts and still make alot of money while getting my name out there for the other 4 parts so more people will buy it. Just think for a moment, this is only part one and they lock you in for another 4 parts that may even be alot more money per episode cause they have you locked in.

Game is 40 hours of gameplay*
Edit:2 paths in the game which will take 20hours each to complete. Both are quite different from each other
