Platformer with Strategic and Narrative Elements of Classic JRPGs Launching in Early Access
June 18th, 2019 — Jelle Van Doorne is happy to announce his platforming JRPG Viola — coming next month to Steam!
Play as Viola, a young girl trapped inside the fantasy world of a magic violin. Follow her quest as she makes friends and unlocks the mystery of a fantastical musical world. While platforming across the world you’ll seamlessly engage in turn-based battles. To win these battles you’ll meet a colorful cast of 10+ characters to join your party! Viola is not a passive RPG. Attacks require the player to time their button taps, and to unleash spells you’ll have to follow a series of rhythm game-esque inputs.
Viola and her new friends will also play music together. Certain songs and characters will unlock different passages and secrets throughout the world. A humorous and emotional story, Viola is about learning to love yourself.
Viola is currently set to launch in July 2019 as a Steam Early Access release on Windows PC for $9.99, with a full launch planned for 2020.
