New release: Arcane Raise

R3TR1X writes in to announce the release of Arcane Raise, which he describes as “survival JRPG inspired by the Dark Souls series, with a focus on story-telling through the environment.”

Regrettably, Arcane Raise is not about a wizard angling for a pay increase–rather, the premise is that “resurrected hunters known as Shades, fight alongside humans against monsters in a post-apocalyptic world overrun by an infestation.”

Arcane Raise is quite plainly an RPG Maker title, and based on the promotional media I’ve seen of it, it seems to lean quite heavily on the program’s default assets. Given this, I can’t imagine there’s much environmental storytelling genuinely going on. On the other hand, it’s only $2.99 and has a free demo, so there’s relatively little risk of being misled; you can investigate further on the game’s Steam page.

Windows only.
