The kingdoms of Alistel and Granorg are at war. As a result, terrible things have happened and will continue to happen - things that may even threaten the fabric of the overarching world of world of Vainguer. This war must be won, ended, or both and Stocke is the one chosen to make it so. Stocke is an agent in the Special Intelligence division in the kingdom of Alistel. Beyond his skill with a blade, he is entrusted with a miraculous tool, the White Chronicle. This amazing book allows him to see beyond the present into other times. Combined with the help of two unforeseen allies, the White Chronicles eventually allows Stocke to actually travel through time to change things that should never have been and channel history into the path that it was meant to unfold.
Radiant Historia is a single player, turn-based RPG with action that revolves around a 3-party battle system and time travel abilities. Battles occur whenever enemies are encountered and play out over a three square grid system. The closer an enemy is to a player controlled character(s) the more damage that is possible in an attack(s). Beyond simply overwhelming enemies one by one, players can also manipulate individual enemy positions so that multiple enemies occupy the same space and can thus be attacked at the same time by party members. Successful combo attacks of this nature can net your party bonus gold and experience points. With a sufficient power build up each party member can also unleash special Mana Burst attacks which offer unique benefits in battle. Objectives that can not be achieved through battle may be available through the game's time travel functionality and the accessibility of parallel universes. By going back and forth in time and visiting other universes players can change events and historical choices that may alter conditions in the present and or future. The result of this can be multiple possible parallel game endings and maximum replay value.

That is a good little RPG. It's kind of confusing when you need to travel through time, but you get the hang of it pretty quickly.Published on June 19 2013 by Vicky Poliquin
Amazing game mechanics! Interesting story and character development. Modern twist on classic style of RPGs like chrono trigger. Read morePublished on June 5 2013 by Pen Name
It's an awesome game, to put it simple. The graphics are sprite-based and really detailed, but with a touch of 3D in the environments, kind of like Mode 7 in the SNES. Read morePublished on May 29 2013 by Rodrigo Maximo
I really liked the complex story with time traveling and I liked the battle system with the grid you can push your enemies around and stack them up to hit them all at once. Read morePublished on May 28 2013 by chibi-anne
