1. Dragon Lore is a story-driven, turn-based tactical JRPG that casts many interesting characters.

2. With this title, we aim to bring you a successor to the SRPG genre (Final Fantasy Tactics, Fire Emblem, Tactics Ogre), and to set an inspiring example for the next generation of JRPGs.

3. We've turned the classic 2D pixel-art into versatile and beautiful 3D voxels. This game presents delicately animated characters, stunning battles and dynamic combat effects, all drawn in a beautiful 3D graphic based on 2D graphics of classic RPGs.

4. Numerous uncharted floating islands are awaiting you with fearsome foes and mystic characters

5. You will control an airship with various operation rooms which can be used to upgrade the characters and enhance your combat capabilities. Summon the airship and lay destruction upon your enemies!

 

The prolonged war between Demons and Humans have brought destruction to the Continent, thus leading to Cataclysm. Once the Cataclysm ended, humanity witnessed legion of floating island in the sky. Many brave adventurers seeked to explore the "Islands of Contradiction", but were never to return. Instead the Continent was attacked by unforeseen monsters appeared from the islands. You as the hero must lead a party and find the truth about Islands of the Contradiction.

 

"That ship flying through the sky? Really?"
"If it's true, there is no doubt the ship is truely formidable weapon. I'm not sure why the ship is neglected like that."
"Because there was no reason to rely on that. I guess now we have the reason."

 

 

1. Basic Combat - In a confined space, allies and enemies attack in turn based order. Each character can choose to perform action between attack, magic, use item, and stay. When every ally character is finished with their turn, the enemy begins to perform their action. You are either defeated or victorious depending on surviving or dying during battle. Victory level is determined by how many turns are used and which specific action is taken.

 

 

 


2. Ability
- In Dragon Lore, Each main Heroes has two or three of their own unique Abilities.
- High rank mercenary hero also has their own unique ability.
- And there are five to seven extra ability set per each class.
- If certain object is cleared, you can teach specific skill to another hero.

 3. Airship Summon - Players can explore floating island, and use Airship to attack enemies. When the gage is fully charged, Cartrina can summon the Airship. Powerful attacks and spectacular effects are shown in the Airship battle sequence. Gold and ingredients can be spent to upgrade stats and battle effects. 


And Others

1. Main Scenario Mode This is the basic gameplay mode. While you play this mode, you can enjoy the story of the expedition.  

2. Extend dungeons You can challenge various battle stage comes with various rewards. It is truely difficuly but you can obtain secret mercenery or high rank item when you clear them. Various type of battle stages will test your strategy. If you feel the main scenarios too easy, you can challenge this extend dungeon. Many additional battle stages will updated as DLC.

Popular Fortune-tellers  Most mercenaries lives with rough battle, and it is hard to sure of the future for them. They often rely on superstition to know their fate and reduce their anxiety. The fortune tellers can awake their potential abilities.

1. Airship: Neutral zone. NPCs, and characters are placed on the deck. As you progress, more NPCs will appear on the deck. 

2. Operating Room: Waiting area of the Airship, used to access missions and character information. As player progresses through the game, more menus are unlocked.  

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


 

In 2006, four young men in their 20s met each other and formed a Game Development Studio. After 2 years of hard work, in 2008 a game was developed, but after realizing many shortcoming of our own skill, we devoted many years into studying and gaining experience in the field to improve ourselves.  

After several years the team was back together. We have launched and published 2 games so far, in Appstore and Google Play. Our published games gained us co-development deals and was exported to China, Japan, and South America successfully.

 

 We have used our experience and hard work to develop a turn based JRPG game title. Company profits and person resource was used develop tools and artwork to complete the Prototype we present.  

We are still miles away from our goal. Game development consumes tremendous times and effort, and even the smallest problems can cause game development to turn into wrong direction. In order to avoid these problems, we wish to lead “Dragon Lore” into the right direction alongside with the help of Kickstarter investors. We have set our goal into reasonable amount needed to complete our game with current members. Also the reward is set to something that is feasible and appealing to our investors.  

Frankly speaking, we hope that the funding exceeds our goal to improve the level of completion and into more satisfactory game. We plan to construct extraordinary world with tactical battle system, engaging characters, compelling story, stunning graphics, and staggering Airship. Your pledge can help us accomplish that dream. We hope that you can join our quest and help us succeed in this Kickstarter campaign.

- Pie chart!!

 

Risks and challenges

Our team begun creating games since 10 years ago, and shipped over 50 various titles. We are aware of the difficulty of developing game as a team. Since 2015, we have been carefully and precisely developing “Dragon Lore”. We are past the concept stage and working into developing contents and assets. Much of the system is already developed, and we wish to complete the game’s content. Our studio is confident that our completed game will be fantastic. What we need is love and support of people who love turn based tactics JRPG game. Please Support us!
