The JRPG genre has been around nearly as long as gaming itself. It seems that every possible mechanic, trope and storyline has been bled dry. However, every once in awhile, a game comes around that tries to do something completely different, with all the good and bad aspects that comes…
Indie throwbacks to the NES, SNES or even the N64 era have become extremely common, so much so that it has become extremely difficult to break out within the marketplace and stand out from the other ones. However, I think Tangledeep has the potential to do just that. You take…
