arcadia fallen review

System: Switch
Release date: January 5, 2022
Developer: Galdra Studios
Publisher: Galdra Studios

It’s hard not to respect a game that tries to punch above its weight and bring fresh ideas into a crowded genre; that alone was enough to get Arcadia Fallen on my radar. Developed by a small team and originally funded on Kickstarter, the game appears at first glance to be just another visual novel about magical beings trying to save the world, but Galdra Studios created something special by adding layers of decision-making and puzzle mechanics to what otherwise would have been a by-the-books experience. And while the individual elements of Arcadia Fallen’s presentation and systems lack the polish and nuance to match its ambitions, its heartfelt narrative and lovable cast of characters elevate the experience to something greater than the sum of its parts.

Publisher and developer Galdra Studios is bringing modern fantasy visual novel Arcadia Fallen to Switch today, and to mark the occasion, they have released a new trailer for the title. Check it out below the break.
