Project Phoenix will soon hit Kickstarter, where the team will be seeking $100,000 for the development of the new game on PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android. When you hear who’s involved in Project Phoenix, you’ll soon realize that this amount of funding could be a paltry sum.
Game director Hiroaki Yura will have a development members overseas who are experienced in triple-A class title like Halo 4, Crysis 3, LA Noire, World of Warcraft, StarCraft II and Diablo III. This includes art direction by Kiyoshi Arai of Final Fantasy XII and XIV and Final Fantasy- and Soulcalibur series composer Nobuo Uematsu. All sounds very intresting, funding is to go live on kickstarter tomorrow!
About Project Phoenix
Players will follow the story of the amnesiac angel, Ruffles, who has landed in the world of Azuregard and encounters the troubled Templar, Marcus Stern. Together with the elven princess Sylrianah, who is reserved but curious to see the world beyond the forest, and Zarum the Lost, a battlemage with his own internal conflicts , they form an unlikely bond. These four heroes must discover their place in a world brought to war by misunderstanding and ignorance, and perhaps ultimately even save it from itself.
Project Phoenix is a sprawling adventure where you will travel and battle enemies across Azuregard. The game departs from traditional RPG conventions through its use of RTS elements, yieldinga combat system that is fast-paced and dynamic. Furthermore, players can have their characters interact with environmental terrain featuers, be it rope bridges or boulders, to create tactical advantages.
