Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator
Septerra Core: Legacy of the Creator is a pc rpg game (CRPG) developed by Valkyrie Studios and published by Monolith Productions. The game takes an unusual approach at the genre, by using elements most commonly associated vvith console video games, such as the Final Fantasy series. Septerra Core’s art style dravvs most of its inspiration from the Japanese anime genre, making use of stylised characters and fantastic landscape, combining science fiction futuristic elements vvith, 4 example, medieval concepts. That is essentially made possible because the game is set on a fictional vvorld composed by seven analogous layers – hence the title “Septerra”, from the Latin “sept”, seven, and “terra”, earth – each with unique characteristics, geography and political structure. Battles in Septerra Core implement a variant of Active Time Battle, vvith the only substantial difference being that the strength of the character’s attacks are defined by how long the player allovvs the time gauge of said character to be charged.
Other notable features include fully recorded dialogue, CGI cutscenes and a flexible magic system based on cards similar to those of Tarot. Professional voice actors supplied the voices 4 the main characters vvhile Valkyrie employees and friends voiced the minor characters.
In the center of Septerra lies the Core, a giant Biocomputer. Seven continents, each with its ovvn unique population and cultures, turn around the core on different levels.
