FF Tactics Spiritual Successor 'Unsung Story' Has Died a Tragic Kickstarter Death

It's been a tumultuous journey since then. For nearly 18 months following the project closing at $660,000 pledged, Carlsbad-based developer Playdek was very non-commutative.

A sucker is born every second on Kickstarter.

@Myst

You're ignorant.

You'll be really popular here.

Funding a game you want to see made so it can be made isn't being a sucker. Projects fail. As long as you keep in mind that it could fail and are OK with that before you give them money you aren't a sucker.

Senboza7d ago

You are a sucker, because you gave a criminal some money together with thousands of others. You think he will use ALL his Kickstarter funds on SC?

Kickstarter is awesome. So many good things have come from it. Video games are the most problematic area sadly

Really want another Final Fantasy Tactics, or spiritual successor

RpgSama8d ago

There already is one, published by Square too, Children of Zodiarcs, look for it.

Gr8b8m87d ago

Not even close.

Arcadian Atlas looks like a much better spiritual successor.

DragonKnight7d ago

If you think Children of Zodiarcs is a true successor to Tactics, you need to either actually play Tactics, or play it again.

Tactics is a level of quality that hasn't been reproduced and, sorry to say, in this current gaming age it won't be reproduced. The game is damn near perfect on every level, and there is not going to be another alignment of planets to make that happen again unfortunately.

And that is a shame too. Because SE knows that Tactics is popular enough to warrant either a real sequel to Tactics (not that Advanced garbage), or a remaster/remake for an actual console and not a handheld. They know this because they put Ramza in a Dissidia game.

My guess is that they are not convinced they could do the deep, dark, adult story as good any more. And the fact that games like Final Fantasy XIII exist is proof that they'd be right about that.

Tactics was really special, I'd love to see someone return to that formula.

Disgaea 5 was really good though. It's comedy/light hearted instead of serious storytelling but it's really good gameplay and cute too if you wanna give it a try. >:D

Scatpants8d ago

Sounds like a fitting title then.

SouljAx3608d ago

That title makes it sound like it's been cancelled. Game is still being worked on for those of you who only read titles, but not by the company who created the Kickstarter for it. And it will most likely end up a mobile game if it comes out at all but that's just my speculation.

Yeah that what confused me he's implying a farwell for FFT but the content in the article isnt. Fan or hater?

Monduu7d ago

More like being rebuilt by the new dev... they're not using the original materials.
So essentially it's a "new game".

Gr8b8m87d ago (Edited 7d ago )

They are using original assets. They've said so themselves in the update.
