New release: The Amber Throne

The Amber Throne
Word reaches me that there’s a new indie jRPG on the scene called The Amber Throne. Created by three-person team The Biggest Missile Ever, The Amber Throne features lovely painted visuals that almost completely disguise its RPG Maker origins.

The premise:

After awakening from her coffin, Arra recalls little but the last words spoken by her father, “Destroy the Amber Throne.” Looking into the sky, she finds that what was once his magnificent castle is now floating in the sky, far above the world below. Arra must find a way to reach the castle before the other forces catch wind of it, to both prevent them from reaching the Throne within and to bring an end to it.

You can scope out the game’s visual style in this trailer:

The game features five party members, a crafting system, enemies with multiple stances and behaviors, and a length of 12-15 hours. This gif seems to show initiative-based, turn-based combat, so you can go in expecting that as well.

The Amber Throne is $14.99 on Steam. Windows only. The developers have provided a very short demo, which you can nab here.
