Last year's Rainbow Moon was a breath of fresh air and one of the best downloadable titles of the generation.

The old-school RPG/strategy fans loved it and now, they've got something else to look forward to: The same development team is working on a new fantasy role-playing project called Rainbow Skies .

They've teamed up with indie developer SideQuest Studios to work on the new game, which isn't exactly a sequel or even a follow-up effort, as it boasts new characters, new story, and a whole new world. Said SideQuest CEO Marcus Pukropski:

Built on Rainbow Moon’s system, Rainbow Skies is a completely new game that is set in a new world with new characters and a new story. A lot of feedback has been taken into consideration and we are confident that Rainbow Skies will offer an even deeper and more versatile gameplay experience, while staying absolutely true to its roots. We can’t wait to show more of Rainbow Skies to our fans."

There will be a bunch of new gameplay features, many of which will be appreciated by those who provided that feedback to the designers.

Okay, so it isn't a sequel, but it's basically a bigger and better Rainbow Moon , and we're totally down with that. Rainbow Skies is slated to hit consoles and handhelds in late 2014.
