This is a really solid game that I had the honor of beta-testing a few weeks ago and really, really enjoyed. Egged on by their nerdy friend Klara, Matthias and Rolf seek to control dragons and turn the tide of a war. But from its jRPG influences the game takes one definite cardinal rule: The heroes must screw up.
Top quality game all-around. It's a long game with a lot to see and do, but it doesn't drag on. The art, as one expects from Darren Hewer, is beautiful and there's lots of little flourishes (like the sea monsters appearing in the map). The action and adventure is fairly standard ZZT fare, but the charm and polish is obvious. The writing is excellent. There are even minigames!
