If you’ve been itching to play a game like Overlord, pay attention, because Masters of Anima may be just what you’ve been hoping for. Developed by Passtech Games, the folks who were responsible for the indie hit, Space Run, it’s not far off and seems to have potential.
Haven’t heard of the game before? That’s understandable. See below for some snippets from its latest press release.
Follow Otto in his quest against the forces of evil in strategic, action-packed battles, where your ability to make tactical decisions quickly is vital. Summon and control large armies of up to 100 Guardians, who obey your commands with intuitive and innovative gameplay made from the ground up for controller play, as well as keyboard and mouse!
You play as Otto, an apprentice of Anima, able to wield incredible powers that are the source of all life in the world of Spark. You covet the rank of Master so you can finally marry your beloved fiancée Ana – who is now a captive of the terrible Zahr and his fearsome Golems!
Learn to control new types of Guardians on your adventure, each with their own unique talents and abilities useful to explore the vast world of Spark and reveal its secrets, as well as to take down the formidable bosses that stand in your way. As your victories rack up, acquire new powers and abilities for both yourself and your Guardians, ultimately becoming a true Master of Anima.
Masters of Anima is expected to summon its armies onto PS4, Xbox One, PC and Switch on April 10th. It’s also received a new overview trailer, which will give you a good idea of what to expect.
