Ryan McCaffrey is IGN’s executive editor of previews and host of both IGN’s weekly Xbox show, Podcast Unlocked, as well as our monthly(-ish) interview show, IGN Unfiltered. He’s a North Jersey guy, so it’s “Taylor ham,” not “pork roll.” Debate it with him on Twitter at @DMC_Ryan.
Arto, an action-RPG with a visually unique graphical design, has been announced by developer OrionGames. It’s in the works for the PC. Arto has a lot of weapons to acquire and upgrade, as well as over two dozen monster kinds to combat, as you’d expect from an action-RPG. But it’s the unusual graphic style, which Orion defines as “bringing life into a word devoid of colour,” that makes it stick out in the screenshots below or the announcement trailer above. Each of the six biomes will have its own distinct appearance. A branching storyline with numerous endings, a vast environment to explore, and plenty of hard boss encounters are all promised in the single-player story.
Arto is an action role-playing experience that paints a new path. Featuring action-packed combat, an arsenal of weapons to unlock and upgrade, and epic bosses to defeat, Arto invites you to explore 6 stunning biomes with their own unique visual styles, and piece together the mysteries of a broken world.
