Recettear publisher Carpe Fulgur has released an English localization of Fortune Summoners, a polished effort from Japanese doujin developer Lizsoft.

Fortune Summoners is a side-scrolling action-RPG that cites gameplay inspiration from the 16-bit era. The game boasts a 25-hour main storyline, and includes plenty of post-game content and sidequests for players to explore afterward. I picked up a Wanderers From Ys vibe from what I've seen of the game so far -- the party-based combat is quite intriguing!

Fortune Summoners is regularly priced at $19.99, but is available for $14.99 during its launch week. An updated demo version can be downloaded here or via Steam.
