Babylon X: A Fantasy Action RPG Set in an Alternative Version of the Ancient World
Developer Mighty Boy Studio has unveiled a sneak peek at its forthcoming fantasy action RPG, Babylon X. Set in an alternative version of the Ancient World, where the construction of the Tower of Babel and a looming apocalypse serve as the backdrop, the game aims to blend elements from both Western and Eastern storytelling.
Drawing inspiration from classic JRPGs such as the Final Fantasy series and 1990s Hollywood action-adventure films, Babylon X introduces players to its unique setting and protagonists, Samson and Leykah. The title is slated for release on PC and consoles.
In Babylon X, players are immersed in an alternative history of the Ancient World, where discoveries related to energy, gravity, and ancient magic have propelled technological advancements in Babylon and Egypt. The narrative follows Samson, a former prophet turned runaway slave and avenger, and Leykah, a young moon cult priestess, as they unite to confront the impending apocalypse that threatens their world's existence.
Developers have emphasized a focus on delivering a relatable human story with emotional and personal elements, allowing players to explore the personal growth and relationships of the protagonists. The game boasts a dynamic semi-open world for exploration, tactical action combat, and a unique magic casting system. Players will have the opportunity to customize their adventurers, selecting from a wide range of weapons, abilities, and magic, tailoring their playing style to the challenges they face.
Babylon X also offers a distinctive fantasy setting that blends Babylon and Egypt with techno-fantasy elements, offering players a fresh perspective on the Tower of Babel myth. Additionally, the game's interactive narrative system encourages players to make meaningful choices with lasting impacts on the game world.
Babylon X is under development by Mighty Boy Studio, a team of industry veterans with a background in video gaming and moviemaking, and it promises to deliver a blend of classic and contemporary gaming experiences.
