In my eyes, artistry goes a long way towards making me want to play a game, even if the gameplay might sometimes fail to entertain me as much. The upcoming game Lanota, though, seems to not only bring a great artistic vision to life but also combine that with a fun blend of rhythm and role-playing gameplay elements. The story takes place in an alternate reality where the world is lost in a colorless silence. The affected areas can only be restored through the use of the Notalium, a product that comes from the era prior to the events that covered the world in silence. Your journey will have you restoring the world using a notalium tuner to tune the disordered world and use music to bring color back to the world.
As you can see in the gameplay trailer below, the notalium tuner resembles a plate, and playing through the rhythm parts of the game looks quite fun. In addition to using the notalium tuner, you’ll be traveling a wonderfully-drawn map as you explore the world, and your adventure will be illustrated in a picture book for you to enjoy. Overall, Lanota looks lovely, and if it plays as good as it looks, I think it will find plenty of fans. According to the developers’ comments in our forums, the game should be coming out in the next few days, so stay tuned (pun intended).
