Digital Tribe and Ekuator Games announce the launch of Celestian Tales: Old North, the turn-based roleplaying game created in traditional JRPG style, coming out on Steam, GOG.com and the Humble Store Monday, August 10th.
The first of the Celestian Tales series, Old North is full of lush hand-painted environments, emotive portraits, memorable characters and a sprawling engaging moralistic storyline that is told through the eyes of six protagonists over many engrossing hours of gameplay. The actions you perform and the decisions you make in Celestian Tales: Old North will carry over to the next installment of the series.
Celestian Tales: Old North is a complex tale of human interactions where deception, intrigue, and betrayal stand side-by-side with loyalty, friendship, and personal growth. This is no clichÃƒÂ©d story about a chosen one destined to save the world. Instead, Celestian Tales tells the stories of a diverse group of young knights-in-training who must learn who they are and where they stand as they are faced with the age old question of what it is to be a moral and righteous human being. Will you choose to do anything in order to survive? Or will you be steadfast in defending your faith and beliefs?
