DMM.com Powerchord Studio, in collaboration with Brownies, has announced Egglia: The Legend of the Red Cap, a new smartphone RPG led by game creator Kameoka Shinichi, whose previous works include the Seiken Densetsu series, Magical Vacation series, Mother 3, and Fantasy Life.
The game, brimming with the visual qualities of Shinichi and Kouji Tsuda, uses a system where worlds sealed within eggs can be unlocked on the world map.
The RPG depicts the strange fate of Chabo—a gentle, broken-horned boy of the brutal Red Cap tribe who one day falls from the sky—and Robin—an elf girl aiming for the revival of Egglia and to find out why Chabo fell from the sky. A town area, dubbed “My Town,” acts as your base and can be expanded. When certain requirements are met, quests will occur. In addition to experience points and reward money, you’ll also get “eggs.”
Eggs can be placed in your favorite areas on the world map, and in those areas the world sealed within the egg will appear. The fields that appear can be freely explored. Fields are separated by hexagons, and you can only move based on the number on the dice you roll. If you end up next to a tree or something, you can cut it down to obtain items.
Battles occur when a monster is in an adjacent hexagon. You’ll roll dice during battle, too. While fighting enemies and obtaining items, you should focus on making your way to the goal.
Items collected on the field can be used to make furniture or build houses. From there, your town will develop with more residents and various shops like a furniture store a carpentry will open.
Egglia: The Legend of the Red Cap will have a stage event at the Tokyo Game Show on September 17 at 15:00 JST.
