Nights of Azure

Gust shifts gears from its charming, relaxing Atelier series to bring us a game about a lesbian vampire demon fighting to save the world — well, mostly her girlfriend — from the encroaching darkness of eternal night.

Cover Game Articles

Nights of Azure: Introduction and History - 2015’s Nights of Azure — or Yoru no Nai Kuni to its Japanese audience — was something of a departure for veteran developer Gust. Primarily known for unconventional turn-based role-playing games with heavy crafting components, a style of game best exemplified by the developer’s flagship Atelier series, Gust opted to step out of their comfort zone with Nights … Continue reading Nights of Azure: Introduction and History
Nights of Azure: Hack, Slash… and Command - Gust, as we’ve established, is a company that doesn’t like to do things completely conventionally. As such, it’s entirely fitting that a Gust action RPG isn’t quite what you’d normally expect from the genre. Nights of Azure is a fascinating game from a mechanical perspective in numerous different ways. Drawing influences from a variety of sources … Continue reading Nights of Azure: Hack, Slash… and Command
Nights of Azure: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation - Nights of Azure is one of Gust’s most mechanically interesting games — particularly in how much it differs from the company’s usual output — but it also has a fascinating, ambitious narrative. Combining a deeply personal tale with a more conventional JRPG-style “save the world” narrative, the overall atmosphere of the game is very distinctive … Continue reading Nights of Azure: Narrative, Themes and Characterisation
Nights of Azure: Sights and Sounds - As we’ve discussed over the course of the last few articles, Gust’s Nights of Azure has a very strong sense of its own identity, both as an individual work and as part of its developer’s catalogue. Every aspect of the game as a whole contributes to this coherent identity: its distinctly operatic, tragic Gothic narrative; … Continue reading Nights of Azure: Sights and Sounds

Seven Arbitrarily Chosen Things You’re Missing Out On If You’ve Been Operating Under the Mistaken Belief that JRPGs are “Dead” - It seems that every time we get a new Dragon Quest, Final Fantasy or Persona release, we have the same old “we’re having a JRPG renaissance!” discussion. Well, dear reader, with my coverage of Death End Re;Quest on the horizon at the time of writing and plenty more RPGs in our shared futures, I’m here … Continue reading Seven Arbitrarily Chosen Things You’re Missing Out On If You’ve Been Operating Under the Mistaken Belief that JRPGs are “Dead”
The One-Liner Challenge - Time for a Community tag post! This one looked like a particularly fun one, and after the lovely Irina from I Drink and Watch Anime specifically requested me to do one about games, who was I to refuse? The original tag came from The Awkward Book Blogger and was based around, as you might expect, … Continue reading The One-Liner Challenge
Waifu Wednesday: Lilysse - It may not have escaped your notice that I haven’t done any Blue Reflection-themed Waifu Wednesdays this month. This is entirely deliberate; since the game as a whole is based around the interactions between the female characters, I’ll be talking about most if not all of the major characters when we come to explore its … Continue reading Waifu Wednesday: Lilysse
