I think Orta looks fine, basically, but I do not like how it plays, and I don’t like the fiddly nature of switching dragons to do different attacks, which was an entirely superfluous addition. I’ll have to get back in there to see how I feel about the visuals, but the overwhelming memory I have is of darkness… No blue sky in games here.
And Chaz it’s a German production team supported by polish devs, I believe. It’s forever entertainment, the company whose games are discounted to 99 cents in perpetuity on the eshop.
 I meant to say, evoking the grandia remaster as a way to play an otherwise inaccessible Saturn game is mostly true, but the purist in me dislikes that the remaster is based on the ps1 version which is visually inferior to the Saturn version, missing a lot of sprite layers and etc. It’s more the true experience of an okay port than the experience of the saturn game.
[edit 2] crossed posts with James- so replying here - a lot of what you complain about there is the stuff I saw in the trailer, so… Yeah, my concerns seem to have been realized! As long as they were changing things, why not change a few for the better, with quality of life improvements and better cursor movement (that’s what looks the worst to me, but it could possibly be framerate related). It feels like they just slathered butter over the whole thing.
