Project Phoenix. Japan's indie RPG with AAA Talent. Doubles first goal in less then one day.

Kickstarter's FIRST Japan-based video game project!
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. (Android, Dev, Indie, Industry, iPad, iPhone, Kickstarter, Mobile, PC, Project Phoenix, PS Vita, PS4)

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.

Hell yes!

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

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?

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.
solidsheep  +   349d ago
Had a wicked final fantasy 8/7 vibe listening to the music.

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!

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

Good work DrakenSilverwing! ;)

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!

This only goes to show that people care about old school games

People like RPGs.

kinda makes me really curious who the lead programmer and art supervisor since they are not saying and keeping them secret for now. also read, i believe on there facebook that they mentioned skywalker ranch and wanting to record there! if that comes to pass, then even more epic music!
luoshuigui  +   349d ago
Not Japanese writing... I can stand the anime-esque design and voice, but not those terrible Japanese writing , dialogues and stories, if only the lead writer is a westerner i'd consider support this project
HarvesterOSarow  +   349d ago
Funded for sure. Have you listed to the music? The art is glorious as well. Really hoping for that $1,000,000 mark!

sweet, practically every game is going to be on pc

wouldn't even be surprised to see games like Killzone SF come to pc

good, really have no desire to waste money on anymore consoles that just collect dust
