Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a tactical RPG set in a fantasy universe. The game was inspired by classic tabletop RPG systems like Dungeon's & Dragons. In terms of gameplay, the title resembles the well-known Divinity: Original Sin series. It was developed by the independent studio Tactical Adventures (founded by a former Amplitude Studios employee) and is their debut project.
Solasta: Crown of the Magister is a tactical RPG where the action is observed from isometric perspective. During the game we control a team of four heroes. The fun begins with the creation of our team. The game offers access to several different races (e.g. humans, elves, dwarves, halflings) and character classes (warrior, thief, cleric, and mage). Each of them has different special abilities. We also have the possibility to customize the personality and set statistics.
The title has been designed in such a way to resemble classic tabletop RPG as much as possible. The devs from Tactical Adventures emphasize freedom of gameplay and three-dimensional maps - during the game we can climb and fly, which often helps us gain the advantage over opponents. The combat takes place in a turn-based system, and success requires the appropriate use of the talents of individual characters. It is also possible to use elements of the environment to - e.g. collapse columns or wall fragments or destroying bridges.
Other factors such as lighting and character size are also important. We can use light as a weapon, but by doing so we also reveal the position of our heroes and expose them to attack. The game also enables us to use the samller heroes for exploration - they are able to get to places the others cannot enter, which is sometimes very useful but can also expose the separated character to death.
Solasta: Crown of the Magister can be played only solo. The mainstay of the game is the story campaign.
Solasta: Crown of the Magister features attractive three-dimensional visual s. The designs of both characters and locations are kept in a classic fantasy style and bring to mind associations with, among others, rulebooks for tabletop RPGs (especially Dungeons & Dragons).
