Operation Backlog Completion 2024

Since we talked about it on Wednesday, we might as well follow through. Square Enix officially revealed Last Idea, and yes, it is a mobile game.

Describing it as a “treasure hunting RPG” for iOS and Android, they released a short trailer that shows… well, pretty much nothing.

Fortunately, some additional information about Last Idea was also announced. You play a treasure hunter who travels to the “Silent Castle” in search of treasure and rescues a girl with amnesia.

It is supposed to be a simplified hack-and-slash action RPG.

So… still no clear reason for it being called Last Idea. Now, mobile games aren’t inherently bad, it’s just that the microtransaction-heavy free-to-play gacha system is apparently so profitable, they’re the mobile games that make it. They haven’t said yet if this will be a gacha game, but on the other hand, there’s nothing particularly compelling about what they’ve announced.

I was intrigued by Square Enix announcing a new game, but so far Last Idea doesn’t seem like it’ll be my sort of thing. What do you think of Last Idea?

In other news, don’t forget that the Kickstarter campaign for Gehenna & Hinnom’s 2019 lineup, including my sci-fi horror story “The Rings of Khal’Uth,” has just over a week to go. It’s almost reached its first stretch goal, so spread the word!

Meanwhile, we’re still going strong with the Eternal Radiance Kickstarter campaign, having met our initial funding goal. Now we’re aiming for the stretch goals as well. If you like visual novels and action RPGs, take a look!
