About Faith and Fire
'Faith and fire' is a narrative character driven rpg that seeks to emulate the effective and enjoyable storytelling, visual and gameplay methods of the jrpg's of the 90's, whilst combining them with themes that are gritty, dark and inspired by medieval western folklore and religion, along with elements inspired by the work of HP Lovecraft.
The game will have at least 15 hours of content, with up to 20 twenty hours for those who go the extra mile and seek out every piece of optional content.
'Faith and fire' will feature all custom tilesets and sprites, and a custom soundtrack, all made specially for the game.
The battle system is turn based, with up to four party members fighting at one time, with each character having access to a wide variety of spells known as 'miracles' to employ, as well as two 'limit break' type attacks they can also use once they have taken enough and dealt enough damage. A system in which striking enemies with certain weapons or miracles to 'break' them in a similiar fashion to the recent hit game 'octopath traveller' has also been implemented; with bosses often changing their elemental resistances during a fight to keep players on their toes.
'Faith and fire' tells the story of the son of a nobleman who is wrongfully accused of being involved in a kidnapping, and reluctantly sets out to find the kidnapped person and free him in order to clear his name.

Along this road the party will be plunged into dark and sinister scenarios involving a nefarious cult, ferocious beasts, and political intrigue.
