Story

One element of SerialWorld that will assuredly stand out among RPG fans is the game's story. This story takes inspiration from many of the classics of the RPG genre and adapts it in a way that feels self-referential & new. The game begins in a fantasy world that features creatures known as Anima. These Anima can evolve through their connection to humans. It is this connection that is at the core of the game's story as you make your way through its events. Players take on the role of Milo, who seeks to learn not only more about the world of Anima but also the mysteries therein. Each of the characters & creatures that the player meets all become a part of your journey, which is a marvelous aspect of the game as well.

The fantasy elements for the game are no doubt going to play heavily into this game. The themes of the game appear to not only show a love and appreciation for RPGs and JRPGs, but also storytelling in general. This makes the world of game appear to be as intriguing as the game's gameplay systems.

In addition to this, players will find themselves solving many of these mysteries themselves. This gives the game's world a sense of tangibility that is palpable throughout. Players will find themselves up against fierce opponents in a stylized world that feels alive with fantasy.  All in all, the story of SerialWorld appears to take many of the familiar tropes of the RPG and JRPG genres and offer its own spin on it. We look forward to learning more about the game's story as development progresses.

For the next section, we will be covering what, for many players, will be the most important aspect of SerialWorld: the gameplay. As alluded to above, the card-battler and creature-capture nature of SerialWorld makes for a wonderful combination. The players can expect to delve into cavernous dungeons, leading the player to great rewards, as well as fantastic combat. The animations for each of the creature's attacks all appear to be very fluid and retain a sense of cartoonish flair to them as well.

In battle, players are able to summon up to three Anima in order to fight alongside them. Each of these Anima interact with each other in many interesting ways. In addition to this, the player can buff these effects with cards in the game. Each of the characters and bosses that players meet throughout the game does a fantastic job of retaining their own mechanics & identity as well. This makes each aspect of progressing through the game feel rewarding in and of itself.

The turn-based nature of the combat also makes for an intuitive design, allowing the player to find their own synergies with different Anima and abilities. The game also manages to have a great balance of difficulty and reward. Players are rewarded for paying in-depth attention to the various mechanics the game has and punishes those who don't think through their actions. This difficulty is one of the aspects of the game that has many players excited. All around, the gameplay of SerialWorld appears to be one of the game's strongest aspects, and we cannot wait to see how the gameplay of this title progresses throughout its development.
