Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a another strategic RPG reported today by Tactical Adventures, a Paris-based developer launched a year ago by Amplitude Studios co-founder Mathieu Girard. It points “to bring the true tabletop role playing experience to video games,” Girard said in the debut development journal, which likewise highlights some brief yet exceptionally encouraging clips of pre-alpha gameplay footage.
Solasta shown up to be a game in the vein of Dungeons & Dragons, which Girard references in the video. Players will make a party of 4 adventurers of races and classes, and afterward guide them through different various realms on a quest for treasure and experience.
Be that as it may, its enormous hook is verticality: The game world is three-dimensional as opposed to “a series of flat maps,” which alongside adding profundity to combat also promises to empower exploration “by climbing walls, flying, teleporting, crawling through passages, discovering secret passages, or falling through unstable ground.”
“Moreover, we have included new highlights, for example, light, verticality, team-based adventure, dice rolls, etc,” Girard said. “We are using the real rulesets from tabletop games to last bridge the gap between pen and paper and video games.”
With all due regard to Girard, Tactical Adventures isn’t actually the main studio to take a seat at that table—BioWare did it (and Larian is doing it) with Baldur’s Gate, Bloodlines 2 is a World of Darkness game, and Fallout was initially a GURPS game—however that is a generally minor quibble. Solasta is still early in development and the fundamental setup isn’t going to win any awards for originality, however, a proper tabletop RPG experience on PC will dependably be my jam, and even at this stage I believe it merits worth keeping an eye on.
A Kickstarter to support Solasta is coming soon, and the developers state that there will be a demo, in spite of the fact that it’s not clear whether it will be discharged as part of the crowdfunding campaign or at some point after.
