Capes is the debut title from Spitfire Interactive, a studio set up by key members of Hand of Fate series developer Defiant Development. The game is set after supervillains emerged victorious and turned the city into a dystopia where developing superpowers is considered a crime, with an organisation called The Company tasked with apprehending these new criminals. However, a new generation of heroes is ready to try and fight back. Players recruit and train heroes while taking on missions across the city, as well as learning the histories behind the various heroes and villains in the game.

Fascinated by the screens since I saw them, video games are a sorcery I quickly become obsessed with. This passion culminated with the discovery of the RPGs. At that time, they were likely the sole titles where story and world building mattered as more as gameplay. Now, I am, writing about them, especially my favorite ones: the JRPGs!
