Grandia by HeavyMetalHanzo Grandia by HeavyMetalHanzo
A tribute piece of my favorite JRPG,Grandia from Game Arts.
What i love about this game in particular are the vibrant colors,the fun and memorable characters,the humor,the incredible soundtrack and what is probably the best battle system i have ever played.
If you've never played it,i highly suggest you do.Very cheap on PSN \m/

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-22
Grandia by *HeavyMetalHanzo
I honestly can't express with words just how breath-taking this piece is. The whole composition has been wondrously executed to bring out every single aspect of the game, and their expressions bring back the memories of my childhood when I accompanied them through their adventures! Full view is a must! ( Featured by rydi1689 )

I remember this game, I don't remember all of it but I remember it felt like a real adventure, actually I remember the good feeling that it gave me. Love it. Do a Suikoden 2 one like this. That was a good game too

I'm actually re-playing this game again. Man the main theme gives me goosebumps every time I hear it. This definately was one of the more creative JRPGs of it's time I honestly I have to say. ^^

We need more rpgs like Grandia these days. ^^;

I've played Grandia 2, and have been considering buying another Grandia game after loving it so much!
If I where to buy another Grandia game, which would you suggest, and why? (They do all have the same battle system, right? The battle system was one of my favorite parts of Grandia 2!)
Reply
:iconheavymetalhanzo:
HeavyMetalHanzo Featured By Owner Mar 17, 2013  Professional General Artist
I'd say they re all great in their own ways,my favorite being the first one.There's also Grandia Extreme,which has less story but mostly focuses on dungeon crawling and fighting.
I agree,that franchise has the best battle system,so addicting.

xD I know, that's how I nuke the endboss. The last time I played I stopped at that one place where you can level her water magic by using the toxic water so you can heal yourself. I knew I was in for a longggg haul and ended up playing something else...

For that last time I played I was enticed by the optional dungeon in the game. IDK why but it was my soul reason for playing....prbly another reason I stopped at the water-leveling. xD haha.

...hearing Sue's "Rah Rah"~"PUUf!" a gazillion times at the start of the game is always great, though. xD

Oh, and congrats on the Daily Dev. That's how I found this. :3

I didn't mean to fave and run forgive me

but godDAMN this is one fine ass piece of work for an underappreciated game I adore so much! You did such a wonderful job and I just love the colors and how you drew all the characters (I am literally swooning over Rapp atm OH MY GOD) and how you transitioned the End of the World wall into the Gaia Core SIMPLY AMAZING I am so in love.

I'm so happy that this got a daily deviation because it damn well deserved it!
