    I hope this has a physical release and be cool for a special edition with steel case and statue

      This will be great if they have the tactical complexity of Final Fantasy tactics. If its just a handful of jobs with 3 abilities each, it will be pretty boring.

        I don't know why they didn't include characters from the actual series. (gelfling I mean)

                Interesting, but they need to tone the overly epic music back a bit (or at least make it more context-sensitive). It's absolutely tiring to listen to this for half an hour. Some more chill and laid back tunes would be a better fit for the tactical gameplay.

                  Uh....these guys aren't fooling around. This is a cash grab attempt, they are really putting effort and time into this franchise.

                    The graphics fail to live up to the original 1982 movie, let alone the new Netflix series! This could have been great, but it looks like a complete joke!

                            music is TERRIBLE for a dark crystal somber atmosphere. Go watch the the old movie and listen to what music was like and what ppl REMEMBER and EXPECT. i get a kids mobile game feel from this...

                              this sounds & looks like a children's dragon quest game, not a dark and somber dark crystal game which even adults today have memories of being too dark for many the final fantasy tactics feel, but hate the dragon's quest "skin" on the dark themes of the IP of the beloved Dark Crystal

                                wraithryder I respectfully disagree. The 82’ film was really balanced perfectly, and yeah it had dark themes but every great story does.
                                Also worth noting is co-director Frank Oz quoted Henson's intention was to "get back to the darkness of the original Grimms' Fairy Tales", as he believed that it was unhealthy for children to never be afraid.
                                I totally agree with that statement. To this day I have a healthy fear of swimming in the ocean thanks to Jaws.

                                I have a feeling these people have never seen The Dark crystal except the guy talking about the game... smh

                                  Archeo Doku Yeah but the dude asked “What’s a Fizzgig?” A FIZZGIG!!! That’s how I know he hasn’t even watched the movie.

                                  pretty sure, the old dark crystal is a visual master piece and has not much story told.

                                This combat looks great, but you must incorporate town and world exploration.. This can be a classic if those elements are there. It could possibly dethrone Final Fantasy tactics if they follow the blueprint.

                                      Wonder what other magic Sages will get. Usually in RPGs Sages are masters of a wide variety of magic.

                                      Wether for attacking, Healing, defensive barriers and stat buffs, inflicting debuffs and stat ailments on enemies etc etc. Would be weird if Sages end up extremely specialized lol

                                                      If you just got turned on to tactics games, try Final Fantasy Tactics, The War of the Lions. It's on phones as wells as some consoles. Best game ever.

I cannot get enough Jim Henson worlds and there is a shortage of good video games utilizing those properties. Can’t wait to play this and hopefully other Henson video games!

                                                                            Can you toggle off in- game music so you can just enjoy battle sounds during gameplay?

                                                                            Also working through the game how many characters can be used in battle?

                                                                            One of my tactics game favs has always been Vandal Hearts you work through the story you can use all characters and the battles become long with many characters to use.....not just a choice of maybe 4 or 5 characters per battle.

                                                                            This game looks good, either way it's a definite purchase for me...!!

And second, there is no height indicator (in final fantasy tactics, there is an indicator for height of where you stand and it can make huge advantage such that for an archer to shot down below). I expected more from a tactics game.
