THQ Nordic has announced the re-release of the 1999’s manga-inspired RPG, Silver. Back in 1999, Silver was the European answer to JRPGs, featuring pre-rendered 2D backgrounds, manga-inspired character design, and console-style gameplay.
Here are the key features of Silver:
- Form your party from a cast of interesting and diverse characters, each with their own unique traits. Sekune is a master of archery, Cagen is a skilled martial artist, Jug’s strength makes him a force to be reckoned with, and many more…
- Gripping story and polished gameplay combine to make a “simple” RPG that’s still a lot of fun.
- Unique combat system with real-time, fast-paced action-you assume direct control over one of the characters, and the rest of your team fights on their own.
- Intuitive Swordplay
Silver’s unique control method allows quick and intuitive handling of action, which is especially helpful in the heat of battle. Ultimately, the mouse becomes the player’s “sword arm”. Sweep the mouse to your left and your hero will slash to the left, sweep the mouse forward and your hero will lunge. Magical effects, throwing knives, arrow, and even catapults are also controlled through the mouse system.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved – and still does – the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
