The City of Izumo

Posted by CIA, Inc. (Creator)

Hello Everyone,

First things first. It was our lovely Community Manager’s birthday last week, and he would love nothing more than to get all of the backers on the forum. If you haven’t registered yet here’s the link: Seriously, he gets lonely sometimes and his favorite gift would be if everyone got all the awesome rewards they deserve.

Alright, into the actual update you’re all dying to read. Last week, we gave you a look into the types of skills and how they will work within the game. This week, we will show you a capital city in Azuregard as well as a boss you could discover in your travels throughout our world.

This is the city of Izumo, the capital of Akitsu, home to our favorite Samuari, Satsuki Kagamizu. In the picture you can see dozens of houses scattered across the landscape as well as guard towers spotted throughout the city to help protect from invasion. Towards the back of Izumo you may notice a familiar monument. That figure is based on a castle in Matsumoto City, and is one of the last battle castles standing is Japan.

 This is Youko, an optional boss in Project Phoenix. We don’t want to give too much away about her, but we can tell you that if you ever meet her it will be one hell of a fight!

 Finally, we wanted to let everyone know that you will soon be able to view that you have purchased a figurine on the site. We are working hard on getting the system implemented and you will not have to wait much longer. if you have received an e-mail regarding your figurine purchase, please get back to us at Budd likes gifts, but he does need room on his desk for all the other cool pledge rewards.

What do you think of Izumo? Are you excited to test your skills against Youko? Please let us know on the forums HERE and we will see you next week.

      Wow, both of those look gorgeous! I love the fact you based architecture on a real world city. I'm so glad I backed ya'll.

      Currently, the only optional playable characters we have planned are those created by backers who have pledged the "PHOENIX - PC" tier.

      Happy Birthday! I love the design of Youko. I'd buy a figurine of her.

      nice. Youko would've been a boss and optional character recruitment. is it possible to make it? :)
