Another Epic Games Store freebie has landed right on time, and just as it was revealed last week, Cris Tales is the latest game to arrive. This is the refresh for the Brothers - A Tale of Two Sons from the previous Epic Games promotion.
Cris Tales is an indie RPG co-developed by Dreams Uncorporated and Syck, two Colombian studios. The title features a time manipulation mechanic, where the screen is always split into the past, present, and future timelines. During gameplay, it's possible to alter elements and scenarios in all three times, affecting turn-based battles and the world.
Here's how the store page describes the setting:
Cris Tales is a gorgeous, indie love letter to classic JRPGs with a new perspective. Peer into the past, act in the present, and watch as your choices dynamically change the future -- all on one screen as you play! Beautifully hand-drawn 2D animations bring to life a world where your choices will change both the present and the future across more than 20 hours of gameplay.
When not on sale, Cris Tales comes in at $39.99. Here are the minimum requirements for playing the game at medium settings:
