“Cris Tales is a gorgeous, indie love letter to classic JRPGs with a new perspective,” reads an official elevator pitch of the game. “Peer into the past, act in the present, and watch as your choices dynamically change the future — all on one screen as you play! Join the newly awakened Time Mage Crisbell and her fantastical companions on their journey across a dark, fairytale world facing a grim future.”
Reviews for the game are still coming in, with its Metacritic score ranging from 74 to 79 depending on the platform. In other words, it’s far from a critical smash hit, but it’s earning respectable review scores and generating some buzz in the process.
