New release: The Tenth Line

Elliot Mahan of Sungazer Software writes in to announce that platformer/jRPG hybrid The Tenth Line (previously covered here) is now out for PC!

The premise, in case you need a refresher:

Guide the princess of Easania and her unusual but reliable companions through a world of magic, beasts, and dragons while avoiding the clutches of a mysterious cult in hot pursuit.

This release is accompanied by a swanky new release trailer, which neatly communicates The Tenth Line’s central ideas:

The game’s features, per the developer:

  • Explore the world through fast-paced 2D platforming by controlling three separate characters, each with unique movement mechanics and ways of interacting with the world.
  • Take on dozens of foes at one time through turn-based RPG battles with an active timing element.
  • High quality background and sprite artwork, and a grand, varied soundtrack.
  • Unique progression and ways to level-up: power up combat moves and set up character-specific specialties through training, and gain levels to spend on the puzzle-like Power Flow board to increase stats and learn new attacks.
  • 12+ hours of gameplay, plus post-game challenges and a New Game Plus mode.
  • Optional story-focused mode that removes most enemy encounters and simplifies platforming to allow a player to quickly experience the entire story.

You can snag a copy of The Tenth Line on Steam for $9.99. Meanwhile, a free demo remains available right here. The Tenth Line is available for Windows and Mac only for now, but Xbox One and Playstation 4 ports are still planned with a tentative May release date.
