Pilot your customizable airship across the globe in pursuit of a mysterious cabal all the while searching for your missing father in Nostalgia.

Pilot your customizable airship across the globe in pursuit of a mysterious cabal all the while searching for your missing father in Nostalgia. Nostalgia is a Role-Playing Game from Ignition Entertainment that follows in the footsteps of the classic RPGs recently brought to the Nintendo DS, Final Fantasy III and IV.


That Old Familiar Feeling

Nostalgia will feel warmly familiar to any fan of the role-playing genre, and people who have played even one RPG in the past will feel right at home here. I really liked how parts of this game took me back to my childhood, when I would play games like Final Fantasy III and Chrono Trigger for hours in front of the TV and Nostalgia had my attention fast and held it for quite a while. Visiting artistic interpretations of cities across the world was a cool bonus, though they bare little resemblance to the cities that inspire them.


What’s Old is New Again

Though this game feels like an RPG from the early - mid 1990’s the 3D graphics and optional side quests with the Adventuring guild and finding world treasures give it a decidedly modern touch. It’s length is decidedly old school too, as the side-quests ensure the game will eat up tens of hours of your time, depending on how much time you want to invest in exploration.


Worth the Trip Down Memory Lane

Nostalgia is a must-buy game for anyone who loves their RPGs old school. From the epic soundtrack to the wonderful art-style, to the colourful graphics that bring the tale to life, Nostalgia’s dungeons and skies are inviting you to adventure through them for a while to come.
