Fuga: Melodies of Steel
In a world ravaged by warfare, a small hamlet is annihilated by the oppressive Berman Regime. A group of eleven children, the only survivors of the catastrophe, unite in the wake of the onslaught. They commandeer a colossal armored vehicle called Taranis, a vestige of a bygone yet technologically progressive civilization. Their goal is to traverse the perilous terrain and liberate their families who have been imprisoned by the enemy.
Fuga: Melodies of Steel is a 2019 video game developed by CyberConnect2. The game is published by CyberConnect2 and was released on July 29, 2021 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows. Fuga: Melodies of Steel is the first strategy role-playing game in the Little Tail Bronx series, and is designed to be similar to roguelike games where the story is advanced through trial and error. The setting is based on France during World War II and is given a tone where the main characters will experience the horrors and cruelty of war.
Fuga is a strategic role-playing game that draws its inspiration from roguelike games where progress is made through a process of trial and error. The narrative of the game is split into 12 distinct chapters, with multiple possible conclusions based on the decisions made by players and the number of characters that manage to survive. Players step into the shoes of a group of young survivors, who after escaping an assault by the Berman empire, embark on a journey to save their abducted families. The course of the story and its ultimate outcome is largely determined by the choices made by players across the game's 12 chapters. Players are tasked with managing a tank, known as Taranis, and deciding when and who to sacrifice to ensure they reach their goal.
The player's party consists of eleven characters from the village of Taranis, who must serve as the tank's crew during the group's journey across the dangerous landscape. The player takes the role of the tank's commander, and the game is separated into twelve chapters. The player is required to make strategic decisions on how to use the Taranis's super weapon, the Soul Cannon, to defeat the Berman Empire.
The graphics are meant to be bright and cheerful, to counter the dark tone of the game. The graphics are in 3D and consist of cel-shaded graphics. Fuga is rendered in cell-shading, and is designed to be reminiscent of the Little Tail Bronx series.
