About this project

Dragons Eye Entertainment Concept Art
Dragons Eye Entertainment Concept Art

Dear Kickstarter,

My name is Justin Lancy and I am the founder of Dragon’s Eye Entertainment. I’ve taken the task of being the lead designer for our first game called Knightly Tales. I’ve worked as a freelance game consultant starting initially in beta testing / quality assurance. I then moved to level design, combat systems, story writing and have bounced between all of those over the past 7 years. My goal is to make a game that people can truly enjoy on mobile devices with Knightly Tales.

Please take a look around our Kickstarter, watch our video and select a pledge level that you are comfortable with. We’ve made sure to offer some pretty exciting rewards as a thank you for your pledge.

As gamers ourselves, the team looked to what made gaming fun for our generation and how we could adapt that to the systems we use today. We understand the time and life restrictions that our players face because we face them with you.

This is what gaming should be. 

Humbly,

 KNIGHTLY TALES

Knightly tales is the Pilot project for Dragon’s Eye Entertainment. A unique combination of classic concepts and new technology to bring an original experience with a nostalgic feel.

Knightly tales looks to return the industry to an era where games were made to be fun for everyone and not an overly complicated system that needs complex guides.

We currently have an alpha build with the majority of the mechanics implemented. There are still a number of graphical additions we are working on which will make a cleaner and more enjoyable finished product.

WHAT WE NEED AND WHAT YOU GET

The majority of the money raised through Kickstarter is going to go back to our team which has worked countless hours over the last year to build what we have today. We're stressed now for time and money to keep going and that's why we need you help to build Knightly Tales faster. 

TEAM

JUSTIN LANCY - Lead Designer

DIMAS DE LEONE - Environment Artist

PHILLIP TANWONGPRASERT - Programmer

FRANCISCO MONTAVLO - Programmer

KELSEY MCSWEENEY - Character Artist

Gold is earned in game or bought in the digital store. It's used to purchase in-game items and DLC packs at they come out. 

You can either name an NPC (your name is put into a random generator) [[name shouldn't contain profanity, etc.]] or opt to have a character created by your likeness! Our designers will create a character based on a photo that you send us. 

Basically all of the concept art and the things that we have been designing in a nicely, digitally bound PDF download! 

Stuff that you'd normally buy at the vendors including temporary character boosts, health potions, upgrades to weapons, etc. 

Art changes. The first DLC that we are already planning is one that replaces the European look and feel with a far east art. Think Samurai, Shogun, etc. 

ALL DLC IS COSMETIC AND THERE IS NO PAY TO WIN IN THIS GAME!
