This game looks better than Final Fantasy in a lot of ways but also doesn't really resemble it.

It's got it's own kind of feeling. It has like a 10% Dragon Quest feel to it kind of for some reason.

if you want you a game to get funded in less than a week put pc exclusive on it.

DiscoKid3697d ago

The next Final Fantasy? Game has nothing reminiscent of it. This is more like a Naruto Storm RPG.

RB2011223696d ago

Good point DiscoKid! However, the makers of the game have said that they found inspiration for the music from various major RPG titles in the past, including Final Fantasy. Lets hope that Shiness can SHINE as a stand out game in its genre.

I can definitely hear Chrono Cross in the tracks!

We should support their project so we can put this on PS4 and X1. The perseverance and care shown by these people into making a wonderful JRPG game is obvious. Please help fund Shiness today at the link in the article or below:

I hope this hits the Wii U stretch goal but at least as it stands the game is getting made and that's the most important part.

Shiness Kickstarter Backers Revolt Over Broken PS4 & Xbox One Promises

Joanna Mueller writes: "Enigami was attempting to backpedal on their promises. Suddenly backers could only claim one digital console key, regardless of how many copies of the game they’d pledged toward. And this was only available to backers who’d pledged at an unspecified tier."

garyanderson2645d ago

Sounds like they made a bunch of promises to keep raising money, pretty shady.

JackTheLiz2644d ago

Just come out and admit you're a shill for Cliqist alright?

annoyedgamer2644d ago (Edited 2644d ago )

He is also tied with NewNormative both of those sites are owned by the same people. Look at their contributor lists.

Situations like this is why I don't bother with Kickstarter. Say one thing, do another. Sounds like another company who had a game release Sept of 2014 who pulled a similar situation.

Patriot4Life2644d ago

Never understood why people give money to someone with just promises...should be a rule in KS that a game or product has to be 30% complete before backing can start.

Also, the person asking to r money cannot ask fr more money until goal and promises are complete.

JunMei2643d ago

And how do they afford the development costs if it's already 30% complete?

The fact is, we shouldn't let the shortcomings a few well-publicized instances sour people on the idea of crowd funding.

Patriot4Life2643d ago

I would agree with you but its not just a few...this happens more often than you think.

Video games and non-related video game product have made promises only to walk away and give us nothing.

Atleast send them to jail for not giving back the money.

It's a very sad situation and I can understand why people are upset. Mistakes happen.

The game is great.

MetroidFREAK212644d ago

And that's yet another reason I don't pledge anything on Kickstarter...

XanderZane2644d ago

I pledged to 3 games and all 3 games were completed and sent to me. Only game that really didn't live up to it's promises was Mighty #9. It was an average game, but still fun. I haven't backed anything else since.

arkard2644d ago

I've pledged 2. H hour, which I pledged for a ps4 copy and have never received. Also pledged for vita copy of Bloodstained, so far that looks to be going OK.
