I spent the weekend with my Chinese Parents… video game for Nintendo Switch that is. There are many aspects of this game that I really enjoyed. It is quite addicting. I probably sunk 20 hours into the game and am on my 5th generation. I’ve sprinkled some random screenshots throughout my review. At the end of the review is our score card and final verdict along with a gallery with all the screenshots I’ve taken so far. (Gallery is having some errors, too many photos, so I will try to add it in later).
- School-simulation JRPG
- Unique 2.5D graphics
- Real-time battle system
- Manage and build your school
- Recruit and train your students
- Promote your students into various class levels
- Multiple endings
- For Pc, Mac, and Linux, Available on Steam and DRM Free
- Job Class System similar to FF5
- Crafting System
The gameplay is 2 fold, focusing on managing your students so that they graduate, and then selecting a job class for them similar to Final Fantasy 5. Your students then go out and battle monster with a real-time active combat system.
Also, if you back the kickstarter, you get access to kickstarter exclusive backer reward “Night Mode” In which you may be surprised by your students’ behaviors after hours. Such things, remind me fondly of Graduation 95 by Mixx.

It’s also being compared to Harry Potter.
The bad news is… they only have 2 weeks left to reach their funding goal! OH NOES. We need to #MakeItHappen
Go go throw money at your screens. We NEED this game!

Also, you can play the previous Valthirian Arc games to understand its gameplay.
