Update #13

Thank you! $650k stretch goal reached!

Today's Kickstarter and Paypal total

Kickstarter $668,533
Paypal $10,902

Total $679,435

Thank you! $650k stretch goal reached!

We are exhilarated to announce that we've reached our second stretch goal!
This will allow us to create a more detailed and explorable 3D model of each major city/town. Now there will be so many things to explore, including many easter eggs and hidden "special" NPCs besides your usual shops, bars/inns etc.

Not only that, we will be providing players with a character customization on non-main characters. Currently, players will be able to customize gender, hair style, hair colour, beard and skin colour. Awesome!

More updates coming

We are in the middle of preparing a lot of other updates, I apologise for the lack of content right now. Hopefully they will be exciting for everyone!

      "players will be able to customize gender, hair style, hair colour, beard and skin colour."
      Whoa, does this mean that I can customize an awesome beard on my character DESPITE their gender? :D

      If every backer gets one other friend to back the project, we can easily break the 1 mil mark. Help spread the word!

      Looking forward to exploring those towns ;)

      Will character customization reflect in the cutscenes?

      Thanks for updates Hiro

      Beards are kind of male-only. Is there going to be a female-only type of customization?

      @winston wong
      I think Mr.Hiro mentioned the equiped armor would be reflected on the visuals

      I am really glad that this stretch goal was reached! So much additional content would be placed in the game; it's going to be amazing!

      I do have some questions though. Like some others have asked, will there be different outfit choices for the characters? Allowing our own characters to wear different outfits would be awesome.
      Also, will there be several face options for our characters? Such as different eye shapes and eye colour. I really hope you guys go all out on the character customization as this is one feature that even many great SRPGs of the past, such as FFT and Tactics Ogre, do not have.

      As much as I want the 1.65M goal, (I have faith in you guys), I'm just enjoying watching you now. I am backed at 400, bouncing between 255 and 400....haha can't wait to see where you guys end! :D

      Creator Sector94 on August 31, 2013

      Will the paypal pledges be available for long? We're reeeeeally gonna need them, because unless you have a miracle up your sleeve, I don't see us reaching the next stretch goal before the kickstarter ends (I'm of course talking about the 1.025M goal).

      Sounds awesome. If you guys make this game just half as awesome as Final Fantasy Tactics was then you guys truly deserved all the backing you got.

      Awesome! Only a million more dollars for the full symphony soundtrack.

      Creator Kristoffer Brandberg on August 31, 2013

      I have a question about the customization. How wide will the choices be regarding the race of the non-main character (if such option exist)?

      Creator Seizui on August 31, 2013

      Hiro,

      I am curious, will there be outfit customization? This is mostly some folks, especially the Citizens would like to be able to play their character. I mean, the hairstyle and everything else is good, but costume customization is an awesome thing.
