What is Emergent Fates?
Emergent Fates is a Japanese inspired Role Playing Game about finding identity and purpose in a world where your fate has already been decided.
Personable characters, rich world history and a fully realized storyline are combined with beautiful watercoloured 2d graphics for an artistic and narrative experience, while multi-class levelling, turn-based battles and player-chosen skill development allow for the customization and immersion which are staples of roleplaying.
Emergent Fates is akin to being dropped into a hand-animated movie or illustrated storybook, with an autonomous twist.
A young student graduates into his homeland's Knight's Academy and is suddenly privy to political issues in unexpected ways... An enigmatic woman travels the world hunting powerful spectral beings for reasons known only to herself.... A scientist with few scruples examines the coexistence of parallel dimensions and their lifeforms...
One story is only a compilation of many. Through the eyes of a few people, uncover the grander underlying stories of an entire world.
Three kingdoms manage a tense coexistence which as of late grows shakier and shakier. Outside city walls, wild creatures and races roam, caring little for the allegiances and grievances of humankind.
A turn based battle system which requires strategic use of class abilities and coordination between the specific strengths and skillsets of each party member. Some require more ability points (AP) than others, but you regenerate a little each turn, and recover them after battle.
Over the course of the game each character gains access to 4 unique classes, each with their own distinct abilities. The player can then customize which classes to use in battle affecting the abilities they have access to. These abilities range from augmenting basic attacks, spending resources for enhanced damage, or mitigating damage from incoming attacks.
Characters may also equip Augments to further enhance certain abilities, unlocking new strategies and synergies between character.
