Publisher Twin Sails Interactive and developers Different Sense Games and Lazy Bear Games have revealed that a demo of Bloomtown: A Different Story is now available to download on PC via Steam. The developers are targeting a Q3 2024 release for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.

Preview the latest trailer, which debuted alongside the announcement.

Bloomtown: A Different Story was one of the RPGs that caught my attention when I learned of it at the start of 2024. The turn-based combat and monster-collector aspects drew me in right away, but what won me over were the charming pixel-art graphics and the 1960s Americana setting, both of which kind of remind me of Chained Echoes‘ sprites. If that’s not enough to convince you just yet, read the overview and check out the in-game screens below.

Bloomtown: A Different Story Overview

Bloomtown: A Different Story is a narrative JRPG mixing turn-based combat, monster taming and social RPG set in a seemingly pleasant 1960s Americana world.

Play as Emily and her younger brother Chester sent on their summer holiday to their grandpa’s cozy and quiet town. May be too quiet… Children starting to disappear, nightmares getting more real… Something’s not right, especially for a 12-year-old girl with an adventurous mind!

It is up to you to solve this mystery and free Bloomtown and its inhabitants from a glooming fate!
