Fairune 2 | REVIEW

Posted on November 6, 2016 by Jason Nason

When I played Fairune just under two years ago I fell in love with the simple adventure RPG. Looking and feeling somewhat reminiscent of the early The Legend of Zelda games, the game was wide open and fun to play. Circle and developer Skipmore have followed up the game with the sequel Fairune 2 and have built a game that stays true to the success of the first one while also expanding into a much bigger game.

Fairune 2 is a game that is built on exploration. You’ll need to not only explore the various maps in the game, but also pay close attention to the surroundings. There will be many times in the game when you’ll suddenly find yourself lost without a clue what to do next. Where do you go? The game is built with such subtlety that if you’re just rushing through the game you can very easily overlook something pivotal to progressing in the game.

Circle announces new game Picontier

Posted on September 14, 2016 by Jason Nason

Circle Entertainment announced a new game at the Tokyo Game Show today which is being developed by Skipmore, developers of the Fairune series. The game, titled Picontier, is a pixel art slow living miniscape RPG which allows you to enjoy a slow living on the island.

In the game you spend your time farming, crafting, mining and fishing. And apparently if you’re the adventurous sort, you can take a journey to the dungeons to fight off monsters. What you do in the game and how you spend your time is all up to you as you follow the charming story by communicating with the strange beings on the island.

Designed by indie label SKIPMORE, who are known for their high quality pixel art and sound design, the game will be available in both English and Japanese. The game is currently on Steam Greenlight but is also being planned for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation 4.

Posted on July 13, 2016 by Jason Nason

With Fairune 2 set to be released in the 3DS eShop in Japan today, Circle Entertainment has shared thru social media that the game will remain a 3DS exclusive title.

The original Fairune title, released for the Nintendo 3DS in 2014, was later ported by developers Skipmore and URARA-WORKS as a free-to-play mobile title. That won’t be the case this time as it appears that there are no plans to port Fairune 2 to mobile platforms.
