Game summary[edit | edit source]
From the developers:
History is written by winners, and tells the tales of heroes. But where there are winners, there are losers, and wars are not won by heroes alone. Behind the veil of history, there are countless stories that lie forgotten. Reliving these hidden tales is the concept behind the Unsung Story.
Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians presents an epic sweep of history through the eyes of the ones that make it, but are overlooked by the passing of time. It presents a fundamental twist on the hero’s story, as it immerses gamers through the experiences of those lashed to the great wheel of history!
The Unsung Story timeline covers many chapters of the sprawling war-torn history of the fantasy world of Rasfalia. The central plot follows the struggles of heroes who fought in the Seventy-Seven Years War between great kingdoms and empires.
The story for each hero will constitute an episode, with each episode being comprised of many stages of game play. Each episode will depict a part of the Seventy Seven Years War from the vantage point of various protagonists. Some episodes will span a single year, while others may take place over a decade or more!
Filled with intrigue, warfare, betrayal, alliances and espionage, Unsung Story is a detailed and immersive game world that players will bring to life through their actions and decisions. It will tie you not only to the names that history remembers after the conflict has ended, but also with the characters behind these immortalized individuals.
Without these people, the unsung ones, the course of the history of Rasfalia would have taken a different turn. You will connect to these unsung heroes though your decisions and experiences, as you live these events though their eyes.
Gameplay[edit | edit source]
Unsung Story is a turn-based tactical role-playing game that takes place on a 3D landscape. The camera is player controlled. A 3D world map is used to select episodes and scenes.
Each unit has a profession, and several classes are available for that profession. A unit's class can be changed to any available within the unit's profession to better suit the tactical needs of a battle.
