AVARIAvs is a turn-based JRPG style fighting game being developed and produced by Juncture Media. It takes the classic JRPG Battles systems featured in games like Final Fantasy and Suikoden and drops them into a pvp setting.
In AVARIAvs, players create a party of three heroes to battle against an opponent’s party. Both players simultaneously choose their attacks and combat actions and then let them play out in combat animations. The battle rages on until one players depletes the HP of the opposing party.
The AVARIA BattleSystem revolves around a lighting-fast radial menu for choosing your actions.
Inspired by the action menus from the classic JRPGs, The Radial Menu System is fine tuned for precision and speed. The AVARIAvs BattleSystem allows players to choose their moves as fast as they can think.
The Radial Menu System takes turn based combat to a new level of fluidity.
Heroes can Focusburn, unleashing devastating attacks.
Successfully completing a mini game during your Focusburn adds even more power to Focusburn and can give you the edge over your opponent in combat.
You have access to four classes in the game: Eoni, Mana Soldier, Servo, and Mage. Each class offers a different set attributes and advantages that can help you claim victory over your opponent.
Telekinetic, immortal, and devoid of emotion. The Eoni are fearsomely cold.
Psychic abilities, innate to the Eoni, are primarily used to provide support and offensive Strength attacks.
They are also capable of dispelling and buffing stats. Eoni are the strongest attackers next to the Mana Soldier.
The Mana Soldier’s chaotic and unstable skillset weaponizes raw mana. Mana Soldier is the strongest offensive class in the game. Suited with a full array of harmful status effects, and centered around a powerful Hybrid attack, Rift.
If planned and executed well, a powered up Mana Soldier could take out another hero in a single blast.
Servos were originally designed to assist in communication between the Eoni and the Hume.
Recently, a special few have discovered how to reroute Servo’s primary functions, allowing them to provide support to allies. Proficient in defense, Servos maintain the protective tankrole.
Servo’s high Vitality and Spirit allow them to stand in front of harm’s way to mitigate incoming threats.
Mages train their deep connection to the planet channeled through positive emotions. Their practice represents the only politically accepted use of Mana.
Mages are the strongest healing class in AVARIAvs. Keep your party members topped up with both active and passive heals.
But not all of the Mage’s abilities are friendly. Some practitioners have been known to emotionally demoralize enemies with more disruptive means, using their strong Mana stat in a more offensive approach.
Heroes & Archetypes:
There are 16 heroes in AVARIAvs.
Every Hero has two different Archetypes.
The Archetype of each Hero determines their Focusburn, Nano item and the growth of their three main abilities.
AVARIA is home to two intelligent species.
First there were the Eoni: immortal, intellectual, spiritual. Born of the planet.
But entirely incapable of feeling emotion.
For most of history, the Eoni were the only intelligent beings on AVARIA.
A few thousand years ago, an Eoni finally stumbled upon an emotion. By feeling an emotion, that Eoni transformed into the first Hume.
The first of an entirely new species on AVARIA.
The Hume – beautiful, carnal, magical creatures – have been willing to live under the rule of the Eoni ever since, following their laws in exchange for guidance.
Juncture Media hopes to have AVARIAvs ready for release sometime in August of this Year. The game is set to release for both Windows and Mac systems with a $19.99 price tag. Check out the Official Announcement Trailer below:
