Wildermyth is an ingenious, tactical RPG. A small, independent Worldwalker Games studio in Austin, Texas, USA, is behind the development of this title.
Wildermyth takes us on a journey to a fantastic land called Yondering Lands. We experience various adventures in it, controlling groups of three characters, each of whom has their own history and personality. As we progress, our charges not only grow stronger, from simple farmers to battle-qualified heroes, but also establish various relationships, and even age to finally leave in glory (or on the contrary, because how their fates will turn out depends on the decisions we make during the game).
We start the game with the creation of our team of daredevils. The statistics of individual members are automatically selected based on their history and personality (if the effect does not suit us, the process can be repeated until the effect is achieved), and we can freely modify their appearance. Although at the beginning of the game our wards are ordinary farmers, as they progress, they become more and more specialized in a particular profession, so they can become fearless warriors, preferring to fight at a distance, hunters or powerful magicians.
Each game is a separate adventure, in which we find ourselves on a unique map, where we have to perform various missions. Moreover, our activities, such as moving around the world map, discovering new places and completing tasks, as well as fighting with opponents, cause the passage of time. The events in which we take part affect not only the course of the story, but also our protagonists and their relationships, which in turn is reflected in their statistics or combat efficiency; for example, friendly competition between heroes can lead to more damage to enemies, the love of two lovers can result in a descendant who will be able to join our team over time, while the aged hero is weaker and slower than the younger one.
The fight against opponents plays an important role here. Fights take place in turn-based mode, in arenas covered with a grid of square fields. Success not only ensures that the heroes' combat skills are skillfully juggled, but also that they are properly deployed on the battlefield. As an RPG, as we progress, our players gain experience and better equipment, which allows them to face ever-increasing challenges. If one of them dies, we can let him go or resurrect him; after the adventure is over, we can move our charges to another story.
Wildermyth cartoon graphics may be fun to play; its individual elements are flat and hand drawn and designed to look like they're made of paper.
