When the “Storm” hit, droplets of water began to trickle upwards, and the flow of time started rushing by in reverse. As the Timekeeper, you’re immune to the effects of the “Storm,” but what can you do to restore the timeline back to what it was?
In Reverse: 1999, you’ll dive into a 20th century time travel strategic RPG collecting powerful Arcanists through the 20th century. Apart from the stellar voice acting and the dazzling visuals, why else should you give Bluepoch Games’ cross-platform title a go?
An alternate timeline and a journey through the past
The Storm has ravaged not only the present time but also people’s lives. You’ll take on the role of the Timekeeper and bear the responsibility of unraveling the truth behind this cataclysmic event. Thankfully, you can assemble your own team of Arcanists and fight against enemies like the Manus Vindictae to bring order back to the chaos.
With the variety of different eras you’ll travel to comes a wide range of characters you’ll meet along the way, and each one features unique designs and distinct accents. Dialogue lines are fully voiced in English, with gorgeous Live 2D aesthetics that combine retro and modern vibes.
An engaging narrative and authentic eras
On top of the unique premise of experiencing time in reverse, the RPG also offers surprising plot twists at every turn. The depth of the story extends to the different hidden agendas you have to uncover between the Foundation and the Manus Vindictae, with each character boasting its own backstory as well.
All these are brought to life by top-notch voice acting from a talented cast. Satsuki talks in a Japanese accent to stay true to the story, while Matilda and The Knight speak in French as expected from the era. Schneider and Pavia have Italian accents – on the other hand, Regulus and Oliver Fog have British accents.
Gorgeous art designs and unique characters
With these distinct accents come distinct character art as well, as you’ll team up with everything from a talking suit of armor to a donkey-headed man. The characters come to life even more with the game’s stunning visuals that pay homage to jazz music, pop art, classic movies, oil paintings, and aesthetics from the Roaring 20s and the Swinging 60s.
Combat, on the other hand, is a tactical turn-based affair, where you can combine different cards to create more powerful ones or unleash Ultimate skills to take down your foes. You can also strategise the best moves to make when it comes to attribute advantages, buffs, debuffs, and so much more.
