Treehouse Live: Fantasy Life & Code Name S.T.E.A.M.

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - Looks better than what we heard from the roundtable.

It's just me here. I got reactions. They're nothing special. But I got some pictures. They're throughout the article. Nintendo Treehouse Live at E3. Watch it yourself here.

Here's a creepy-looking hand.

    Treehouse Live has started!
    Day 3!
    Code Name S.T.E.A.M. within the hour.
    Fantasy Life now.
    ...Which I know nothing about.
    (I didn't eat breakfast help)

 Nintendork 13 13 12:34 pm
    They lost their trailer.
    Fantasy Life from Level-5! Intense, deep-layered game. It's adorable.
    Deep RPG with customization. "Create your life, whatever life you want to start with. Then swap around."

 Nintendork 13 13 12:36 pm
    Treehouse doesn't pass up sparkles.
    Feel terrible for putting arrows through cute enemies' faces.
    Killing sentient carrots. <_<

 Nintendork 13 13 12:39 pm
    Level up → get points to assign to increase in various stats.
    Big bounty boxes. Treehouse dude just destroyed it.
    Protect it with your life. ...instead of destroying it.

 Nintendork 13 13 12:42 pm
    Napdragon looks cute. =-O
    Let him nap.

Napdragon is cute. Don't hurt him.

 Nintendork 13 13 12:47 pm
    So they're making money... getting resources... for different jobs later... selling stuff... yeah.
    Each life class has their own life master, with their own story arcs.

 Nintendork 13 13 12:50 pm
    A bunch of standard RPG-like quests of collecting x amount of stuff to get stuff.

 Nintendork 13 13 12:52 pm
    You can get a cat.
    Yeah I don't want to keep watching this.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:00 pm
    It's multiplayer.
    "You haven't learned woodcutting." But the other Treehouse person has.
    S.T.E.A.M. in 5 minutes.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:05 pm
    The music reminds me of Rawest Forest.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:09 pm
    Code Name S.T.E.A.M. is here.
    First time we've seen it.
    Devs introducing themselves.
    Turn-based strategy with action/shooter influence.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:11 pm
    Lincoln forms a team to defend Earth from aliens.
    American comic books + steampunk elements.
    Take a look at the game!
    Good headphones featured.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:14 pm
    So it has voice-acting.
    (Maybe IGN can stop complaining?)
    Apparently "Thames" is pronounced "Tems". Woops.
    Normal dialogue seems to be voice-acted too. (Not lip-synced but eh)

 Nintendork 13 13 1:16 pm
    well that monster is ugly
    Play an "advanced" level. (Story-wise I guess.)

 Nintendork 13 13 1:19 pm
    Apparently it's a steamy Valkyria Chronicles, not that I'd know.
    Normal strategy games are top-down, this isn't.
    Good music.
    Elevation is important because it's over-the-shoulder.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:21 pm
    So you gotta get to a high place to see the map. Exploration to see new info about the battlefield.
    You can swap between members of your team to get different perspectives during enemy phase, since camera doesn't centre on the enemy's movements during their phase.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:24 pm
    Henry has a "jump booster". ...Lets him jump.
Choose where to land, and jump. Takes a ton of steam.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:27 pm
    You can attack on your enemy's turn. "Overwatch", if you save up enough steam. (Move/attack points)

 Nintendork 13 13 1:32 pm
    Designers wanted you to see the game through visuals, not through numbers.
Visuals AND numbers!

 Nintendork 13 13 1:34 pm
    uh oh enemy reinforcements

 Nintendork 13 13 1:38 pm
    On-map save/checkpoints. (FE: Shadow Dragon?)
    Spend currency to restore yourself/team at savepoints.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:45 pm
    "Super-turn" involving spending a lot of money on restoring your team's steam several times.
    IS wants to see great feats in this game on YouTube.
    (Guess they're happy at some of the incredible FE stuff on YT.)

 Nintendork 13 13 1:49 pm
    The mission they showed was a "get to the goal" mission, not rout.
    Now we're somehow in Boston.
    On the next map.
    (Guess it's not in first-person, by the way. So not sure why they kept talking about first-person all yesterday night.)

 Nintendork 13 13 1:51 pm
    Everything in the environment is pixel art, so looking at it is beautiful whether you're up-close or afar.
    Creepy eye cameras for the boss.
    Still better than Project Guard.
Better than Project Guard.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:54 pm
    Trinen is preventing these guys from showing us something.

 Nintendork 13 13 1:56 pm
    We don't get to know why Lincoln is in London yet.
    Smash 3DS next!

KoopaTV continues its coverage.
