Monster Tactics Mod released
Monster Tactics is a mod for Final Fantasy Tactics with a unique story and gameplay mode. In the plot, humanity is slowly dying in Ivalice and Ramza must try to figure out why. Instead of recruiting soldiers, Ramza must now recruit various monsters to build a team to fight off the monster hordes who have now supplanted humes as the dominant species in Ivalice.
The game utilizes a modded version of FFTactics which features more monsters with more robust move sets than their original counterparts, as well as special battle modes you can try out by chatting up interested parties at the bars in towns. The game is said to be much more difficult than the original, with all enemies scaling with your party. Also monsters can only be recruited during battles so be careful you don't kill the units you want.
Those who love the classic but want to experience new challenges should check it out.
Nice effort, but it looks too weird for my tastes.
The game was already plenty challenging, to be honest. An increase in difficulty sounds odd.
The oddest are the screenshots with their weird modern pop culture references. One of the things I liked the most about FFT was the quasi-Shakespearean dialogue, so seeing it done like this with a story that sounds... uh, very un-Matsuno, let's say, this doesn't really catch my interest. "Let's do away with all the intricate political conflict and let's make it about humans versus monsters! Yay!"
