Winter Voices Episode 1 Reviewed
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Examiner.com has posted a new review of BeyondthePillars' episodic RPG, Winter Voices. The seven episode game chronicles the saga of a young heroine who, after the death of her father, must follow the mysterious voices of her unconscious mind to find the answers she seeks.

From the review:

The three available character classes are Huntress, Weaver, and Volva (Storyteller). The 6 characteristics aren’t typical RPG staples such as Strength and Dexterity, either. Instead, they represent personality traits and your psyche: Humor, Willpower, Memory, Perspicacity, Charisma, and Intuition.

The skill tree in the game is more of a skill ‘snowflake’ filled with dozens of skills equally open to all three classes. Additional passive and active skills can be purchased each time you gain a new level, and they are as interesting and abstract as the character stats.

In addition, the skills in the game basically represent various psychic, emotional tactics used to fight inner turmoil. Generally, they break down into skills that improve your characteristics, heal you, repel or immobilize enemies, or help you defend against attacks (reduce damage). Two key skills acquired early on in the game are Repulsion, which moves enemies away from your, and Escape, which lets you move an additional square on your turn.
