    I had to look this up today, after someone on my FB feed complained about the name sounding like Octopus.

    This is a JRPG?

    I haven't read any gaming mags or websites in ages, I'd only seen a few people online name dropping "Octopath Traveller" (without screens or context), which I instantly dismissed because it sounds like a sequel to Octodad.

    This is one of the worst English names for a game I've come across. The instant mental association, upon just seeing the name, is that it's some worthless garbage fluff casual 5 minute flash or mobile game with hideous art design. Like Octodad.



    Octopaaaaath - nobody suspects a thing

    Octopaaaaath - they've got a good thing goin'

    I mean, I suppose if you follow games religiously, or buy magazines, or visit news sites regularly, it's alright? But for anyone not heavily invested in games, the name by itself is truly awful.

    I agree. It sounds like a mobile game.

    It's called Octopath, 'cause there's 8 characters that all decide to go on a journey. The first letter in each characters name spell out Octopath too, so it seems they really like the name It used to be Project Octopath Traveler, before.

    Seems a lot of peeps don't really understand what the game is all about. The demo is great, it's the full game but with a 3 hours time limit attached. It takes about an hour to do the intro section for one character, so you can get a nice idea of how it plays.

    Correct. I assumed it was a cheap mobile phone game.

    Is it safe to delete the demo after you've picked the save file from it up in the main game?

    I can't be objective with this, having grown up with Squaresoft at their best and loving 16-bit jrpgs, but this game is gorgeous! There are moments that stop me as much as any AAA title from recent times. The gameplay is solid, the voice acting spot on (the dialogue is a little twee, but mostly on point), and it's nostalgictastic in every possible way. The execution really is spot on. In my totally biased opinion, this pees all over FF15 from a great height and will hopefully give rise to all manner of FF remakes and new titles using the same engine.

    I find the battle system can be enjoyable if I field my main team (Olberic, Cyrus, Tressa and Ophilia) as I have most basses covered and great offense, but it's very easy to neglect the other characters and have them become underleveled and such. Any other mix of characters and the fights just seem to drag a bit. Therion is super weak and not very useful compared to the others IMO, but his path action is a game changer. I'm nearly at 20 hours and have just picked up the last character on my lap of the map, H'aanit. Looking forward to seeing what the sub classes do.

    Also, look out for the cat enemies that run away lol. I stole 6,000 off one once before it ran. Another time I managed to kill one and all my team got about 3 level ups off the EXP.
