New release: Dragon Fantasy

Hey folks! Sorry for the ridiculous delay in posting–the site host was down all day due to some friendly DDOSing from our friends over at Anonymous.

Speaking of friends: when you take a look at Dragon Fantasy, don’t you just feel like you’re looking at your old pal Final Fantasy 4? What’s that–you say don’t know what Dragon Fantasy is? Well, let’s fix that!

Dragon Fantasy is an episodic jRPG from indie development studio Muteki Corporation (who I am told really is just a few people, despite sounding like a giant, evil cyberpunk megacorp).

I’d tell you the premise, but so far, each episode seems to have its own independent story. To wit:

Chapter 1:
Join Ogden, a hero who’s been written off as past his prime as he goes on a new adventure to reclaim his past glory…

Chapter 2:
Prince Anders of Wester discovers the secrets beneath Castle Wester. Team up with Lt. Chester ‘Chest’ Manstrong of the Westerian Army and unravel the mysteries behind King Wester’s disappearance. But beware the mysterious mercenary, Serpent Diablo. Is he friend or foe?

Chapter 3:
Help Jerald, an adventurous thief, and his niece Ramona escape from the increasingly dangerous desert empire of Sandheim. A mysterious amulet will change their lives forever, and only one of them will make it to safety.

This trailer probably gives you a pretty good idea what you’ll be in for:

In addition to the chapters, there is an “Intermission” available which appears to be something of a Minecraft parody in jRPG form. Weirdly, this is the one I’m most curious about, purely because I am forever interested by the various ways in which games approach parody.

The first three chapters and “Intermission M” of Dragon Fantasy are available for Windows (via Indievania), as well as for Mac, each at a $4.99 price point. You can also get the game for iOS for a mere $2.99.
