Therian Saga offers players an intriguing mixture of MMORPG and sandbox gameplay as players will create their unique hero while exploring, fighting, crafting, farming, hunting and much more. Those seeking something different from a browser based adventure will no doubt be hooked on this turn based like RPG that almost feels like a Dungeon & Dragons quest.
With its sandbox style approach Therian Saga leaves plenty of choice in the hands of the player. Maybe you want to explore the rich world of Myriaden and get lost in the elaborate lore, story and quests the area has.
Alternatively, players might wish to fight in the darkest dungeons for rare loot or become a master craftsman using the intricate crafting mechanics of the game. With your destiny entirely up to you and a wealth of content in front of you there are no limits.
Therian Saga is a game of choices with players commanding their customisable hero with queues of actions (which they will attempt to complete whether you’re in front of your computer or not). This makes the game a very strategic and methodical experience as you carefully weigh up your chances for success against the potential rewards.
Ideally as your characters slowly grow in strength and you begin to master the time managing mechanics you’ll be able to develop their skills in combat, improve their crafting abilities and amass some wealth along the way.
Travel and combat will fill much of your time as players instruct their character to move to various locations across the beautiful game map and then perform actions at their location. This movement takes place in real time so planning ahead is ideal, characters will also have to meet certain terrain levels for the trip to be successful.
Many of these locations lead into the combat element of the game as players discover a dungeon and venture in to explore the depths. Combat is also quite simple with a turn based approach that relies heavily on your equipment and potential companion. Crafting is the final piece to this puzzle and creates the endless loop you need in a MMO. With crafting you’ll turn the fruits of your labour into powerful equipment that will expand your horizons for more exploration where the cycle will repeat itself.
Therian Saga is a mixed bag of goodies with charming gameplay that will have you feel like you’re inside your own role playing adventure. It’s slow pace definitely isn’t for everyone but with the ability to queue up tasks it’s ideal for both short and long time commitments.
