Chaos Chronicles Announced

Publisher bitComposer Games announces Chaos Chronicles, a fantasy-themed turn-based role-playing game in the works at German developer Coreplay (Jagged Alliance: Back in Action) for release on Windows PCs next year. There is already a Chaos Chronicles Website, though this is empty at the moment, so here are some screenshots and here's word from the announcement: "Chaos Chronicles leads PC gamers into a lost empire full of legends, thrilling adventures, and dangerous opponents. Players can explore numerous ancient ruins, mystical places, and mysterious dungeons alone or in a group of up to five players. Chaos Chronicles unites the typical characteristics of classic turn-based role-playing games with modern graphics and a gripping atmosphere. The sophisticated gameplay will captivate veterans of the genre as well as newcomers." Here's more:

Over 200 years ago the flourishing kingdoms of elves, dwarves and mankind were consumed by chaos. Undead hordes lead by archwizards of the dark arts overran the land. Only few were able to escape. The survivors build their new homes on small, secluded islands off shore. A few years ago the Order of the Holy Flame sent its knights to lead an expedition to the mainland.

Even though the old cities lie in ruins and orcs, goblins and other creatures of evil roam the land there seems to be hope for a return to the land of their ancestors. The big harbor town Rethgard has been purged of the undead and the inner city has been fortified to stand ground against any kind of attack. Driven by their love for adventure the player’s party enters a boat in order to take part in rebuilding the kingdom.

Heh, yeah, a bit derivative. On the other hand, when was the last time we had a real three-quarters perspective, turn based game?

Also,
Players can explore numerous ancient ruins, mystical places, and mysterious dungeons alone or in a group of up to five players.
Does that mean that you only control one character, and if you want more then it's multiplayer with up to four other people?

And I agree with Cutter that the graphics look really good.

So they can give real turn based to a fantasy game, but not to JA?

Looks good. Like the art style. We'll see how the writing turns out. If they're smart they'll include an editor.
