small saga - A New Hero Emerges
Deep beneath London lies the medieval kingdom of "Rodentia", inhabited by rats, mice, moles, squirrels, and shrews. There's an unwritten rule in this kingdom: one must never defy the gods. Yet, a mouse named Verm disregards such norms. His tail is stolen by the "Yellow God of Death", and to retrieve it, he must confront a myriad of beasts and titans.
Deep underground in the Rodentia Kingdom of London, the tale unfolds around Verm, a mouse that dares to defy the rules. He embarks on a quest to reclaim his tail, battling a variety of creatures and overcoming numerous challenges. Throughout this journey, Verm forms bonds with unique companions, together confronting the mighty titans and the nasty pests that rule the societal pinnacle. Combat is turn-based, requiring players to strategize and effectively utilize small weapons.
What stands out most is that the game eliminates random encounters and unnecessary combats, focusing on the storyline and memorable boss battles. This ensures players become deeply immersed in the game world.

Aviary Attorney" is set in 1848 Paris amidst societal chaos and revolutionary fervor. The game follows avian lawyer JJ Falcon and his assistant Sparrowson as they defend innocent animals. Drawing from 19th-century French societal underpinnings, themes of corrupt power, and oppression of the commoners are intricately woven into suspense-filled narratives and exhilarating courtroom battles.
Players navigate real Parisian landmarks while investigating cases, collecting evidence, and exposing witness contradictions in a bid to prove their client's innocence. The game is further embellished with the stunning art of 19th-century caricaturist J.J. Grandville and music from Romantic composer Camille Saint-Saëns. Released on December 15, 2022, for the Nintendo Switch, it is also available as a downloadable version.
Moreover, Noghani's upcoming work, "Small Saga," is slated for release on November 16th, local time. This game, too, was crowdfunded through Kickstarter and has clinched an award at the first GYAAR Studio Indie Game Contest
I've been noticing indie games lately, and this "Kickstarter" place seems pretty popular.
It's a testament to how much talent people are spotting. It's an enviable position to be in.
The sensibility to craft a society of animals into a game, it's remarkably brilliant.
I reckon folks who enjoyed Tom & Jerry or Adventures of Gamba should definitely keep an eye on this.
How old is that Gamba show again?
I'm not sure about the game's difficulty level, but for those who've been out of touch with games, indie titles might be just right.
It might resonate with those who've played on platforms like the SNES, early PlayStation, or DS.
In gaming, there's no old or new, just enjoyment.
