by Rainier on July 9, 2019 @ 2:37 p.m. PDT

Viola is a platforming JRPG where you play as a young girl trapped inside the fantasy world of a magic violin.

Viola is the musically themed platformer/RPG! Combining the fun pace of a platformer with the strategic and narrative elements of a classic JRPG.

After failing at violin practice for the hundredth time, Viola gets trapped inside her instrument's fantastical world. She's joined by a set of strange, colorful friends, as she journeys through the lands of magic, monsters and music... Searching for her way back home.

Follow her quest as she makes friends and unlocks the mystery of a fantastical musical world. While platforming across the world you'll seamlessly engage in turn-based battles. To win these battles you'll meet a colorful cast of 10+ characters to join your party! Viola is not a passive RPG. Attacks require the player to time their button taps, and to unleash spells you'll have to follow a series of rhythm game-esque inputs.

Viola and her new friends will also play music together. Certain songs and characters will unlock different passages and secrets throughout the world. A humorous and emotional story, Viola is about learning to love yourself.

Key Features:

  • fantasy world of a magic violin.
  • Create your own party from a colorful cast of 10+ characters!
  • Platforming and RPG battles seamlessly combined in a beautiful pixel art package.
  • Play musical instruments to unlock passages, secrets, and more!
  • A humorous and emotional story about learning to love yourself.
  • A labor of love made entirely by a single person!

Viola is currently set to launch on July 23, 2019 as a Steam Early Access release on PC for $9.99, with a full launch planned for 2020.
