Welcome to the world of Octopath Traveler!
The game is just like any other JRPG you've played if ever you're into those except that it's in 3D! Oh? It's 2D?!
What?! Both?! Oh yeah! It's both! This is why the game really looks awesome!
Explore the hand-drawn looking 3D-2D world, meet and talk with people (NPCs), Trade stuff with them, practice fighting with them for buffs, meet new people and add them in your team and...
Wait wait wait, hey Sei! you can add any people in your team?!
Sure do kid! But you need the power of the red gem stuff to call people and talk to them 1 by 1 everytime you do!
You mean this is a gacha? And what do you mean by talking to them 1 by 1?
Yes! It's a free to play mobile game. What do you expect? Devs got to have money somehow. You know.
Also, yes. You talk with every people you will get on the gacha. So if you pulled 10x, you will need to talk to each of them too! Considering you don't have them yet which is kind of time wasting for me.
Anyway... The game is still story-driven which is a bummer for people that can't read the language but you can feel it. The darkness, the emotion of the VA, and how the pixel characters move and react! It's so good that you might really want to play more of this game if only your VPN won't expire!
But Sei! There are free VPN apps from the Play Store!
Yes... but it's just also a test on how much progress you can do on 7 days. And based on my playthrough, the game is fairly easy to play but still challenging enough to make you fear of losing. But hey! I defeated a level 11 Giant with my lvl 2 Chibis!
So if you're looking for an RPG to play on your phone, take a whim on this game! You might like it that you would wish it's not gacha.
