Bringing together top-notch talent, combining Eastern AND Western developers with TONS of AAA experience!
Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu's FIRST indie game project EVER!
Art that balances Western functionality with Japanese aesthetics!
A JRPG primarily built for a worldwide audience, not just Japan

Platforms: Mainly for Windows, Mac and Linux via Steam and our website. iOS and Android will have a different version to the PC counterparts due to limitations.
We are also working to have the game released on PlayStation 4 and other platforms but is yet to be confirmed.

Project Phoenix is a JRPG with a squad based RTS game design, brought to you by veteran developers and creators from the East and West.

Update:

It has just passed the first stretch goal of $300,000. which means more character and monster models as well as more music by Nobuo Uematsu.

Just passed the kickstarter funding goal on day one Impressive

Convas1077d ago

Hell yes!

I really like the combat mockup art. I'm going to support next week as soon as I get paid.

NewMonday1077d ago (Edited 1077d ago )

this is some great talent they have, especially on the Art/Story/Music side.

I have to say for me this is the most exciting KickStarter yet and hope the stretch goals go very very far.

the reason the main goal is only at 100K is because most of the developers will get paid by royalties, that means they are betting on their own talent and we have to admire that.

also:"Currently we are in negotiations to have our game released on the PS4 and the PSVITA. The negotiations are still ongoing and we are 90% certain we will be able to release on these wonderful devices"

this would look fantastic on the Vita

Edit: can a NeoGaf member post this news on the site if it wasn't already?

DrakenSilverwing1077d ago

it already has been posted on neogaf. And yes. more then likely since they are finalizing the contract for the ps4/vita versions. yeah. its goin to happen. just when is the question. can't wait!

I want the Vita version, all the Vita love at the moment is brilliant, finally the handheld is getting the games it deserves :)

HammadTheBeast1077d ago

Looks to be the essence of the Final fantasy games with it's own identity. I'm in.

The music alone should be worth it.

solidsheep1075d ago

Had a wicked final fantasy 8/7 vibe listening to the music.

DrakenSilverwing1077d ago (Edited 1077d ago )

Come on people this is epic! everyone needs to see this! Just watch the video! So much Awesome!

I got so hyped i took alot of time in Tumblr earlier to get some posts moving around. as well as a few other sites.

Initial goal made in less then 9 hours!! At this rate tho it will hit the final stretch goal in just weeks. or less!

G20WLY1076d ago

Holy crap! It's at $250,000! :O

Good work DrakenSilverwing! ;)

DrakenSilverwing1076d ago (Edited 1076d ago )

lol, thanks, heh. btw. here in the next few moments it should be at $300,000! Since this is doing so well i hope kickstarter starts letting more projects from japan and all on there. cause according to kickstarter its only available for US and Europe. so i'm glad to see strings were pulled for this!

SilverSieryu1077d ago

Wow! I can't wait to see more of this! i wish i had some more money to back this and get some of those good looking perks i see!
