Wow I was right about to buy it but online only? That's a huge disappointment. I guess I'll pass on it sadly..

Also *sigh* on the required connection. Pretty nonsensical for what looks like a good non-F2P RPG at a cheap pricepoint.
Putting it on my backburner for now.

I want to message them on FB and ask why but it doesn't seem like they're active on there too much. Though I'm sure they'd just give pretty standard responses.. It's just I'm so disappointed right now.

But if you don't care about online only games, give it a go! Tell us how it is. I need something to get over my disappointment

Yeah I don't understand- there doesn't seem to be any multiplayer or online specific functions to explain this.
So, why online only?
I'm worried for the dev because it's such a beautiful game but they are shooting themselves in the foot with this...

makes premium gorgeous rpg with a ton of gameplay elements impressing a lot of people
makes it online only

EDIT: i would not be at all surprised to find there are IAPs for special characters- timers- cosmetics. Otherwise, why make it online only?

there are nothing like that in this gem. just an online requirement.

Thank you for replying Raravan. Still, i personally refuse to "rent" a premium rpg in case they decide to discontinue the services etc. If they ever make it offline, i'm buying instantly.

it's a bit of bummer for sure, but i really can't stand the well made JRPG.

Should have been a instabuy but going to wait and see with the required Internet.
