Artifice is an ongoing, episodic RPG. Designed by Kynton, as an homage to 16-bit era JRPG’s, it shares themes with games like Final Fantasy 6, Chrono Trigger, and Undertale.
Artifice runs on an Active Time Battle System, or ATB. Meaning that in addition to being turn based, actions become available over time. The 5 Bar System adds strategy and complexity to the ATB system by opening up new options as bars fill up.
