Epic Games offers a new free game every Thursday, so users can enjoy it without paying anything.
The Epic Games platform offers Cris Tales, a game inspired by classics such as Chrono Trigger, Final Fantasy VI, Valkyrie Profile, and the newer Bravely Default and Persona 5.
If you like JRPG, this is the game for you, and those who have played it claim that the illustration is pretty good – they even say that it is a feast for the eyes.
The game is good not only because of the drawings but also because of the complete content, and it can be seen that every detail was considered.
Cris Thales came out in 2021, and he shoots nostalgic people first because it evokes memories of the most beautiful elements of the JRPG genre and its rich history. However, it doesn’t look like a classic Japanese RPG – it follows recipes that make games of this type, but in its own way, which contributes to originality.
Crisbell is a sympathetic Time Mage who embarks on an adventure, realizing his ability to control time. This means that during the research but also in the fights, Crisbell will send the characters as well as the surrounding environment into the past or into the future. And while this in research means solving puzzles, in fighting, it promises an ingenious action system.
Clashes with opponents are certainly performed in a turn-based manner, and combining the abilities of the characters and controlling the time, provides really interesting opportunities. For example, if you pour water on an opponent in the past and then send him into the future, he will instantly rust, which will make it easier to defeat him.
The story, although fun, contains several unusual twists that will not delight everyone. And the world, no matter how beautiful, grandiose and big it looked, the more you visit it, the more you realize that it is not really like that. Although detailed and full of spirit, the content of this game is like landing in the ocean – so abrupt and explosive, and then slower and deeper as you struggle to reach the air.
Quality, hand-drawn games are not common, so this is another advantage of Chris Tales. It is now completely free in the Epic store and is ready for download. He will remain in the repertoire for the next seven days when a new title awaits us.
