Unfortunately, the demo and any future ones will be battle only for the most part. But I promise, you'll get SOME kind of fun with this.
You'll be able to walk around the island, and get into one battle. Go to the X Menu, and select W. Skill to turn off encounters and select it again to toggle encounters.
Only the sword allows weapon skills(one for now), so equip it and go to the skills menu(Ability > Skills). Make sure to check your equipment also.
Check out the M. Class menu and select classes for your characters also(to use magic combos, go to skills and select it). The magic combo system resembles Legaia's limb-based fighting system, where you would attack with left and right arms, and high/low kicks. It's just that with this game, you use elements instead. You'll be able to select from 3 different classes(well, technically 4), Cleric, Sorcerer, Guru and Warrior(no magic combos for you!) and the magic shots you can use differ with each class. You cannot use weapon skills also if any class other than warrior is selected.
Check out the More Options menu, to toggle footstep sounds or the battle message display(numbers will be shown below the stat boxes instead of message window displays).
well, i'm off all week for spring break, so i'll try to have a look at it. i still need to play the demo for Crown of Order...and...a lot of others.
i remember liking the story idea, so yours will go to the near top of the list.
Black all around me, even the water. The water’s not really black, of course. Reflection from the sky. Water’s like a mirror sometimes. Lets you see your face in it, anyway. Reflecting the night’s face, then, isn’t it? Does the night have a face? It must. Otherwise the water couldn’t reflect it.
