October 30, 2015 – DegiGames and White Guardian Studios are pushing the boundaries of JRPGs and have set the Nov 19th release date for Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge. Celestial Tear is a JRPG with a strong western art influence and an innovative combat system designed around managing rage and inputting attack combos.
When the world of Hasphal was colonized by an advanced race of humans ages ago, they didn’t realize there was other intelligent life on the planet. The more primitive natives hid in the vast networks of caves and other remote regions, their nomadic ways perfectly adapted to evade these newcomers. Eventually, the newcomers lost contact with their homeworld and their society became more insulated with each passing generation. When the natives, called Jehts, were discovered, they were not met with the civility that would come with an advanced race, but rather the fear and superstitions that had grown in the void left by their learned ancestors. Misunderstandings between cultures and origins blossomed into full blown conflict, and began a cycle of bloodshed that appears unstoppable, even to those who wish it so.
It’s been hundreds of years since the conflict began. The humans fill their ranks with “ridders,” people whose sole mission is the extermination of the Jehts. Demonized by the humans and fueled by hate and bloodshed, the once peaceful natives have become the monsters the human invaders set them up to be.
Celestial Tear: Demon’s Revenge is a traditional JRPG with a combo based combat system influenced by 2D Fighting Games like Street Fighter. It features a Western comic book style with detailed pixel art and animations. Enjoy the rich, voice acted story of multiple characters thrown together as they fight to understand how things ever became so terrible on the world of Hasphal. Demon’s Revenge is the first chapter in the Celestial Tear trilogy, which will follow these characters to the fruition or failure of their goals.
