Falling Stars, an RPG made just for me, I mean uh ... young girls

4:24 PM on 06.21.2007 // Nick Chester

I'm coming clean here -- if there's one genre that has always frightened me, it's the RPG. The complexity of their narratives and, in some cases, their gameplay has always put me off. Well thank God for Lithuanian developer Ivolgamus and their upcoming PC and PlayStation 2 role-playing game, Falling Stars
 
Created with children in mind (and more to the point, little girls, it appears), Falling Stars guides players through the world of Dazzleon, a land of mysteries and pastels that would make Queer Eye's Carson Kressley blush. In addition to the game's main story (which contains the ambiguous "many hours" of gameplay), players will also have to train their pets (poniez, OMG!), dress their character in unique outfits, participate in exciting mini-games, and battle poopy-headed monsters.
 
With exciting mini-games that appear to include archery and vacuuming a room, Falling Stars has made its way to the top of my "Most Wanted" list for 2007. Looks like I'm going to have to cancel my Mass Effect reservation ...
Uncover the mysteries of Dazzleon ...

Fighting evil and protecting the innocent has never been this fun!

Falling Stars is a role-playing game aimed at children, and features an engrossing story with many hours of gripping gameplay. As the player solves the mysteries of Dazzleon, they must train their own pet, dress their character in an assortment of unique outfits, participate in seven exciting mini-games, and battle deadly monsters.

Falling Stars is a visual feast, as the world and characters are brightly coloured and beautiful to see in motion. The world of Dazzleon is incredibly detailed and there is a definite 'feel-good' atmosphere that can be noticed just wandering through the world. Butterflies gently flutter around forests, autumn leaves drop rhythmically from orange trees, and stunning waterfalls add even more to the ambience and mood in this magical world.

Falling Stars features everything needed to keep a younger audience entertained and engaged, and is certainly worth waiting for. It is due to be released in August by Ivolgamus.

Features

- Many hours of exhilarating RPG-style gameplay for kids!
- A detailed story that unfolds as you try to discover the truth behind the mysteries of Dazzleon!

Just started playing Hyrule Warriors again. Man is that game fun. A bit mindless at times granted, but fun nonetheless.

I ate vanilla ice cream and didn't put on any chocolate syrup. Now wondering if that was racist whitewashing #thanksjed.

There's a Custom Soundtrack folder in MGSV. I can't think of a better thing to put there than the old episodes of podtoid I've been running through lately. I'll be fultoning guys and Holmes will be puttin' on mesh tank tops. Perfect.

MGSV Pro Tip: Turn your brightness down to 0. It actually makes the view distance for the guards correct, and doesn't make nighttime the best option for you every single time. When guards shoot flares in the sky, the lighting looks like Dragon's Dogma.

Proof I listened to too much Weird Al growing up: I really do hear "Living in America" as "Living with a Hernia."

I've been playing a shit ton of Heroes of the Storm recently. It's my first MOBA and I'm SHOCKED at how much fun I'm having. Anyone else into it? Would love to get some games in with Dtoiders.

I would wait for a chance to play the game by myself, but I just have to know. Is David Hayter in MGS V in any way? Please no spoilers.

Guys, serious question... How can I make D-Horse to poop?

Goddammit @ FullmetalJ, you have poisoned my mind with...whatever the hell this is.[youtube]https://youtu.be/wv0iUKb80C8[/youtube] It's so, so catchy. Go suck a baguette. And thanks :3. Yes I have listened to all of it.

As someone who hasn't played the MGS series at all, should I play it by release date or story order?
Vuster avatarVuster
Been watching a good friend play the Metal Gear game on twitch soon. I will say I can understand the appeal 100% and Kojima knows how to make a great piece of work. I think will hold off on a new pc and get this if this keeps up!

So I can plug any headphones I want into my PS4 controller. If said headphones have a mic, will it work in chat?

Gee whilikers, guys. I might just explain where I've been and what I've been up to while I've been gone. That'd be a good topic for a c-blog getting me whipped back into shape, right? I'ma try to write more, so expect more of me in the future!

Just bought Fez for xbox 360. Playing it on my 58 inch plasma. What a beautiful game.

So there's a chance more MKX characters are being revealed today. Now, I'm not saying you *should* cross your fingers and say a prayer for me to get my waifu Sindel just, y'know, it would be monstrous of you to make me cry with your lack of love & support

Just so you know, I've been a Huge subscriber for a few years but I thought I had until the end of September to cancel it. So I've opened an inquiry for the refund, which is on tinypass' end of things by the way.
