Chronos: Before the Ashes is an atmospheric RPG that chronicles a hero’s lifelong quest to save their homeland from a great evil. Grow wiser, stronger, and more powerful as you explore the depths of the mysterious labyrinth. At first, I was going to pass on this game, not because it was bad but because I thought I knew all that I needed to know, however, what caught my interest was its unique aging mechanic!
Every time the player dies they age one year. Player’s must adapt to their advancing age as they progress their character; starting the game young, nimble and quick, and ending wise and more attuned to magic. Now that is something I haven’t seen in gaming yet I believe. There’s an incentive to no die too often which could make for a great story-telling experience.
