Scalebound Inspired by Old-School RPGs, Kamiya Admits He Hasn’t Played Recent RPGs


YO! This is what I like to hear. Scalebound producer Hideki Kamiya has stated Scalebound is inspired by old-school RPGs, and he hasn’t played many of the recent ones.

“I’m going to completely admit that I have not played a lot of recent RPGs. [laughs] It really goes back to the old school RPGs that I can speak of and think about, and really draw on for inspiration. So in that sense, maybe from my point of view, when I say the RPG element of Scalebound you’re gonna maybe see some things that are very basic and very simple – whether that might be customizing or equipping items, or upgrading.

But all those things are perhaps different from what you’d expect from an RPG, in that all those things you typically do for your own character. The investment in customisation and equipping and so on in Scalebound is not necessarily for you but it’s for Thuban – the dragon character.

Someone that you’re going to start caring for and about. So it’s very different, for me at least, as it’s not really customising, equipping, and upgrading myself but it’s actually putting that thought into the character that you really care for. So I think that’s one differentiation that you could say for certain.”

    ugh hate that tagline, I’m glad he’s just talking about basic elements.
