THE RELAXED (turn-based) EDITION.

Many of our players have requested for a turn-based version of Song of Pisces, the hack and slash role-playing game that we have released in May of 2015. This is us delivering what was requested. Book 1: Pisces is a completely different game, given the complete change in mechanics, even though the core story is basically the same.

  • Turn-based combat system.
  • New monster battler art.
  • Revised levels and skills.
  • New battle and battle victory background music.
  • More clues in the side quest narratives.

Story:

War is coming. Siren, the last remaining Water Guardian, goes out of hiding to gather her forces: an acolyte from a dying clan of powerful seers, a holy squire protected by a sentimental scientist, a lost dark elf seeking refuge in the Mercenary Guild, and twin sisters: a monk-in-training and a rising minstrel. The enemy is yet unknown, but the small group of fledglings fight their way to uncovering the truth.
