Crimson Shroud - Matsuno's Newest Game
« on: February 02, 2012, 03:32:14 PM »
We've known about this for a while,  but since I didn't see a thread I thought it best to finally make one.
Crimson Shroud is Matsuno's new 3DS game and is pretty much his take on western tabletop RPGs all the way down to physically rolling the dice.
Matsuno has previously worked on games like Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together and Final Fantasy Tactics.

Earlier Information:

New Information:
http://andriasang.com/comzue/crimson_shroud_screens/

We also know that Sakimoto is doing the music for the game.

While there was a thread made for all four of the games mentioned in Level 5's Guild-1 collection this game in of itself didn't have a thread of its own.

That said, the closest thing to an analogy that I can come up with for this game would be the RPG Maker game Ruina: Fairy Tale of Forgotten Ruins, although far more gamebook than RPG.
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

It's not a tactics game, so I can safely ignore the Matsuno fanboy worship.

It's an 'old school' dungeons and dragons style RPG with dice rolls.

Visually this looks a lot like Vagrant Story. Hope someone bring it over here, seems interesting so far.

Normally I don't dig this type of thing... what I mean is, if I wanted a tabletop-RPG-experience I would play a tabletop RPG..... but this looks pretty freakin' cool..... I unfortunately have no tolerance for handhelds (can't do little screens)...... Good golly how I wish they would create a way to play some these gems on the big screen.... I feel as though handheld gaming is dying with the PSP for me.....
In this world is the destiny of mankind controlled by some transcedental entity or law? is it like the hand of god hovering above? Perhaps Man has no control even over his own will…

Posting for some additional Crimson Shroud screens (some pertaining to gameplay perhaps).

Also there are other games involved in this Guild 01 game collection including what appears to be Suda 51's attempt at giving a rail shooter Metal Wolf Chaos's plot (though unfortunately less ironically not-American than MWC was).
In my vision, I see that one of us is going to KO the other.

New screens.  Very, very interesting. It's like he took Wizardry one step further.

Wow, that boxart is like, calculated to give people nightmares. Who wants to bet Suda51 had something to do with it?

^Yeah because every box art for a video game has to have a guy looking badass.

Anyway, this bit of news is not about Crimson Shroud but Guild 01 has a demo of Time Travelers that can be unlocked if you clear certain conditions.

That game has changed a lot, and still looks interesting.

It has nothing to do with not being badass guy.  It has everything to do with telling me absolutely nothing about the games inside the package, or even catching my attention.  It just doesn't do its job as a cover.
