Foretales Free Download GAMESPACK.NET I need to find a way to track a certain individual, which means I need to recruit a hunter. But all the locations available on the board are filled with enemies, which means I need to confront one group to open up a new one. I use a combination of food, money, and fame to convince the entire group to flee, and Volepain, the protagonist, loots their camp, bringing in a decent amount of supplies and some explosives. I then negotiate with a hunter and, using his card, push towards the quarry I am tracking. I rest, to get some of my cards back, and once again evaluate which group of enemies to attack to try and bring this quest to completion. I might actually fight them, as I am low on bribe worthy resources. Foretales is developed by Alkemi, with publishing in the hands of Dear Villagers. I played on the PC using Steam and it is also offered on the Nintendo Switch. The title delivers one of the most interesting takes on a card-driven adventure I have seen in a while.

Volepain is a thief who takes on a weird job  that allows him to see potential futures after touching a mysterious lyre. He sees potential trouble for his friends and family, but also an apocalypse that will destroy his entire world. The only way to stop it is to tackle a series of adventures, choosing people to save and situations to solve, finding out more about the artifact, and finding ways to balance subtlety and aggression. There’s a lot of writing in the game and, as long as the player is ready to roll with some fantasy tropes, it’s solid, especially when it comes to the interactions between characters. I like the narrative of Foretales but it’s the gameplay that will capture the attention of most players. This entire adventure is based on cards. Locations in a chapter of each adventure are cards drawn from a deck (always peek in there to see what might come up), while potential opponents are another deck, which grows in number based on player actions and specific events. Each character the player has in his party comes complete with his own set of cards

Some of which are in hand and available to play. Even resting, which gives players a chance to get more cards to use, is centered around a small deck. In addition to the cards, players have access to money, food, fame, and dread, as well as to unique items. And all these cards create a world, a situation, a way to solve it, challenges to overcome, opportunities to exploit, and dangers to avoid. Clocking on any character ability card, on any resources, and on any item will show how it can interact with a location or a character. The aim is to cycle through all elements of a scene, develop some, avoid others, extract resources, find new cards, solve situations, and find a way to move the adventure forward. Figuring out this puzzle is fun and engaging enough. But, depending on the situation, players will also have to engage in combat. Most of the enemies are so cute that it’s hard to think about killing them, one of the many ways that Foretales offers incentives for non-lethal play.

others retreat after players spend fame or dread or use an item. Each enemy that retires takes away some of the group’s morale and all the rest follow suit if it all drops to zero. I followed the title’s lead and always sought to avoid battles and to make enemies retreat without bloodshed. When it becomes impossible to avoid drawing steel, Foretales remains a solid experience, allowing players to boost a character’s attack or to use companions to soak up damage. Foretales adopts the restrictions of its genre while finding ways to create a vibrant world out of cards. All the characters have clearly drawn personalities, with the level of quality extended to all the cards that players will discover and use. Even though the entire experience is centered on a table, the art evokes a much wider universe, centered on animals and deep social issues. The sound design is almost as good as the graphics, with a soundtrack that knows when to make its presence known to underline moments or actions.

Hit or Stick?

The one small issue is the constant narration, which can become annoying and repetitive. Thanks to the wonders of modern technology, we no longer have to rely on having other people around to enjoy a good card-based game or adventure tabletop experience. No more exhausting your social battery or having to go to a distant location to meet like-minded people. Now, the games are brought to us in the luxury of our isolated homes. My experience with card-based games is limited to copious amounts of hours in both Gwent (both Witcher 3 and standalone title) and Thronebreaker. Aside from the occasional dabble in the genre, I’m a relative rookie when it comes to partaking in this niche area of gaming. Foretales, thankfully, is a welcoming adventure that looks akin to rocket science but can be picked up like secondary school chemistry (Bunson burners and all). Unlike other card-based games, the entirety of its gameplay and story is told through the use of cards, rather than just combat. Ni no Kuni II Revenant Kingdom

It’s like having a warm winter’s evening in over a D&D board with friends, only it’s summer, and I have no friends. Anyway. Can this unique concept hold up for repeated runs or is it just a poorly executed board game in digital form? Foretales is fundamentally a story-driven game involving numerous branching paths. You’re immediately thrown into this anthropomorphic universe where your decisions of which missions to take on, and in which order, will ultimately decide your next available paths and eventual ending. Right off the bat, you can see a litany of potential routes, stories and conclusions available, meaning there’s a lot of replay value on offer. The story itself has a few layers, much like an onion. Your primary character, Volepain, interacts with an object that allows him to see snippets of future events coming to pass. As you may guess, these are all of the catastrophic variety. Should you choose to save a companion before imprisonment or prioritise saving a town that’s inevitably going to be set ablaze?

Play Your Hand

You won’t have time to do everything, quite the opposite. Every mission you undertake will move the world forward a turn, meaning if you detour or choose one mission over another, you risk a different calamity occurring. It’s creates a sense of pressure for every decision you make, while again encouraging you to hop back in after a campaign to see the outcomes and opportunities of routes you never took, or horrendous events you never managed to prevent. There’s lots of ground covered, from a plague that’s spreading corruption and turning people into ethereal creatures, to political posturing and finding ancient relics belonging to cults. It’s all handled pretty proficiently but it can blend together and the break-neck pace you have to move on means you never really settle into enjoying the story as much as I probably would have wanted. Narrative is provided predominantly through text dialogue and witty comments from the narrator who adds some levity throughout

though a couple of his lines started to repeat a little too often and became slightly annoying. The story serves well enough for the basis of the game, but it’s not phenomenal to blow you away. Once you’ve selected one of your available routes or missions, you’ll need to engage with the card mechanics proper. Each mission is made up of multiple regions – complete all regions and you’ll finish the level, easy enough. To progress through a region, there’ll be both an exploration deck and enemy deck, which are doled out as you play. On the board, there’ll be a number of locations drawn from the exploration deck which you interact with using your character’s abilities cards, and item cards. Still with me? I promise, it sounds more complex than it is in reality. Say for example your objective is to get past a guard checkpoint. You may be able to bribe them with money, so you use a rallying call card on a tavern to find a trader. You can sell your food to said trader for money, then bribe the guard.

Alternatively, you could use different abilities to seek out different people or areas, allowing you to find a false pass or do good deeds to build up fame to impress said guard. Most region objectives will have different ways to progress, though some are more linear/pre-defined. Each character in your party has their own deck, with up to 6 evenly spread between them in your hand at any time. You have options to swap out cards from hand-deck but discarding your hand card, while you can rest a limited number of times to draw 3 cards per character (sometimes having to sacrifice food or money to do so). Should your number of rests run out or a character’s health reach 0, you lose and restart from that region again. As you clear locations, they’ll be discarded and a new place drawn from the exploration deck, which then recycles. If you find yourself committing bad deeds or if there’s enemies in pursuit via their deck, when a new location is drawn it may run the risk of adding a group of foes to handle, before you can interact with that location.
