New release: Fey

Emmett Southwood writes in to tell me about Fey, a new action RPG. Developed under the pseudonym Ashes of Emerald, Fey was released just last month after a whopping 8 years in development.

The premise:

Fey is the story of Landon Ferngrass, a young boy with a broken past who is lured back into a wild and sobering adventure by a mysterious shape shifter named Picaro.

The spiritual successor to Darkness Shall Bleed, Fey allows players to take control of Landon and embark on a journey that will push him to his emotional, intellectual and physical limits as he tries to set his past right and discover the real truth behind Oak Island and the legendary artifact of souls, the Fire Pearl.

There’s a trailer for the game that is a year and a half old, but it seems to be the only trailer of it in existence, so let’s give it a look:

Fey is made in RPG Maker 2003; however, it uses 100% original art assets and does not require an RTP to run. The combat system is coded from scratch as well. Southwood writes:

The mechanics shift and change with the progression of the story, ranging from a zelda styled rig to  a Metal Gear Solid style all the way to a Survival Horror. The entire game was heavily influenced by Uncharted 2, Resident Evil 4 and The Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker. That being said, there are interactive cutscenes. There are skills that can be learned throughout the world and other purchased from the in game menu. Fey also has a completely custom Custom Combat System, along with completely original graphics and a Custom Menu.
