Children of Zodiarcs is an indie tactical RPG created by Cardboard Utopia and published by Square Enix Collective. The player controls a motley crew of professional thieves as they try to make their way in an unforgiving world, plundering magical artifacts with the help of some of their own (the titular Zodiarcs).
In battle, the player moves around on a grid-based tile system, selects actions from a hand of cards, and then rolls a set of die to determine additional effects. However, you can mitigate some of that risk through a re-roll system, where you can pick some of your old die and try to get a better outcome.
I thought I’d make a topic for this because, while I’ve only just scratched the surface (only two hours deep and not yet through the second chapter), I’ve had a favourable impression so far. I was a Kickstarter backer, seeing connections to much-loved games from me like Fire Emblem and Baten Kaitos. While my attention has been pulled a little elsewhere from Children of Zodiarcs, I was wondering if anyone else had picked this game up and what their thoughts on it were.
