Creative Director Jason here.
Things have been progressing very well on the game. Since the last time we chatted we've moved our office into GameplaySpace, have been busy working on a vertical slice, and have also privately shown off the game at PAX Prime 2015.
OH! Also, we've completed the developer application for the PlayStation 4, so we're officially able to release on the PS4! Neat!
But the BIGGEST update is that we have a date for our Kickstarter!! We're going live January 20th, 2016!!!!!!! Because of our mega-successful Square Enix Collective campaign, we're launching with the support of The Collective. Join our launch Facebook event and SAVE THE DATE!!
Help Spread the Word!
Launching a Kickstarter campaign is a huge endeavour. One we need to tackle with the best start possible. If you can, please help spread the word about the game. Point every friend, TRPG, and JRPG lover you know to our Twitter, Facebook event, or newsletter sign-up so when the campaign goes live, everyone will know. :)
In early January, the Steam Greenlight campaign will be live! I'll send out notice when it's up, so keep your eyes peeled for that update!
Here's a preview of an art piece that will be in our Greenlight video:
Kickstarter Backer Reward Survey
We're working on the list of rewards for the different backer tiers and we want your opinions. For that, I created a survey to find out what it is that YOU are interested in getting when you back a Kickstarter. It will help us immensely if you could take 5 minutes and fill out this survey.
And if you can, we would really appreciate it if you could share, tweet, and generally pass this survey around. The more responses we get, the better we know what you want.
City of Torus Concept Art
Our artists are hard at work producing concept art for the game. Here's a look at the Noble's District of the Toran Empire's capital city, Torus.
Torus is ruled by the descendants of several merchant families. They live in towers high above the city streets, in the palatial Noble’s District. Armed guards provide round-the-clock security for their pampered masters, oblivious to the world outside of their lavish pleasure gardens. Here, waterfalls pour from marble fonts, and the rich discard sumptuous feasts without a second thought.
