Prodigy is a game that doesn’t have a lot of noticeable hype surrounding it. In fact, a quick google search is more likely to bring up information about a math game. But Hanakai Studio has created a gorgeous looking tactical RPG.

Tactical RPGs have never really been my cup of tea, but after seeing the game featured on AlphaBetaGamer, I decided to download the demo and check it out.

The game is visually stunning and the graphics are what drew me in initially. I don’t have a point of reference to make a comparison to other games in the genre so I will try and use comparisons that I do know about. It feels a bit like Magic: The Gathering with how the cretures are summoned onto the battlefield.

The combat plays out in a grid where positioning plays a huge role. You can only attack enemies in front of you, and so if there isn’t an enemy in your line on the grid you heal. The combat has a learning curve due to the simplistic menu design. Even after playing through the tutorial, a lot of time I found myself just pressing buttons to see what ended up happening since I couldn’t remember what everything was.

Here’s a short video I made on the game that should give you a decent idea about the game mechanics and plus you can see how great the game looks.

The game also features figurines a la Skylanders and that sort of thing. For more information on that aspect, check out the game’s official website.

If you want to download and try the game for yourself, you can get it from steam here.

Gamer since Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt dual cartridge days. Believes there should be a Babymetal video game kinda like Brutal Legend. Currently enjoying Phasmophobia on PC!
