Rainbow Billy The Curse of Leviathan, A Paper Mario – inspired Adventure
It has been announced by ManaVoid Entertainment, the developers themselves that Rainbow Billy: The Curse of Leviathan will indeed be released on the 5th October 2021, that’s 4 days time…It’s come a long way since being announced at the Wholesome Games Direct, during E3. Many have been waiting for its release, the best way to describe this Indie game is a cross between Paper Mario and Chicory. As the Paper Mario franchise hasn’t impressed fans recently with the games Nintendo has put out, they’ve been looking for alternatives, one 2.5D game that gained a reasonable amount of recognition, is Bug Fables, which had everything the Paper Mario fans were looking for, except for Paper Mario. If you don’t know what a 2.5D game is, click here to find out.
However, times are changing and these other 2.5D games have their own unique style to it, while the appearance is similar to Paper Mario, the storyline, dialogue, mechanics and exploration, are all different. They don’t aim to make a Paper Mario replica for Paper Mario fans, but they aim to take inspiration and surprise Paper Mario fans with their new, innovative creation of a 2.5D game. It’s not always going to include turn-based battle, the soundtrack you’re looking for or an exact storyline mimicking the original. Rainbow Billy The Curse of Leviathan and many other 2.5D games, will have their own vibe and I think we should ALL give these games a chance! (“I think WE ALL give these games a chance Jewel” Thank you Victoria Justice for these words of wisdom…)
