PlayStation4 Stretch Goal announced

Posted by Cardboard Utopia (Creator)

Hellooooo fans!

If you check out the main description, you'll see that we've updated it with an image for our first stretch goal: the PlayStation4 version! 

It's the biggest one that everyone has been asking for (seriously, Jason's inbox is full). And amazingly, it's already 50% reached! Will we get the PS4 goal reached before midnight? Oooooooo!

For those that backed tiers that get the game

After the campaign ends, a survey will be sent so you can choose which platform you want the game on. So you can choose Windows, Mac, or PS4.

      Will backing alpha or beta master grant ps4 beta play or are those tiers only for pc/mac?

    2. Kirkland Schlicht on

      Just had an idea. Would it be possible to throw the dice using the PS4 controller's accelerometer?

      @Phil Winkel
      Yeah, pretty much that. Regarding the controller support, it's something that was a goal for us from the beginning so all our UI is designed for mouse/keyboard and controller support.

      Would also like to see other stretch goals that don't involve ports. Do ports after you release the game, if it's successful. I'd rather see it released for 1 platform, than never released for any platforms.

      For example just adding support for controllers adds a whole slew of development time. It affects user interface, etc. I see WAYY too many "ports" to consoles (or other way around) where the controls and UI of the ported version completely suck.

      Thanks for the answer. I really hope it will not hinder your development. The game looks really cool so good luck !

      You're welcome :)

      TO EVERYONE ASKING - if you backed a tier that gets a digital copy of the game, you can choose which platform you want it on (Windows, Mac, PS4) in the post-campaign survey. For the physical PS4 version, we are still working out a solution because yeah, we want that baby on the shelf as much as you do!

      @Mithrandir - yeah, porting is a risk and time sink, but we've discussed it with Denis (very experienced in porting games) and have a plan formed. This is a big goal but one we have experience in working out :)

      The money asked for the game was already very low. With a port on PS4 it becomes even more so. Sorry for being quite pessimist but at the rate at which Stretch Goals are met you'll soon be developping Children of Zodiacs for PC, Mac, Linux, PS4, PSVita, Wii U, Xbone ... And then we will wonder why you are late on delivering the actual game.

      Porting is hard and time/money consuming. It also induce more risks.

      Since your game can run on pretty much any PC nowaday I see no incentive to bring it on PS4.

      I know I'm pessimist but i've seen so much kickstarted games get late, lost and broke because of stretch goals that were unrealistics that i'm really concerned about this stretch goal.

      Well I'm not gonna back out anyway and I hope you will be able to deliver.

      Thanks so much, Tracey! That really means a lot to me! =D

      It's always a good plan to include consoles in stretch goals. The spike in pledges is always good :)

      I missed your Soul Saga kickstarter but it's a day one buy when it hits PS4 one day :)

    11. Disastercake on

      When Soul Saga announced its console marks, the pledges made a big spike as soon as the stretch goal was hit for the Playstation 4.

      Great job getting this planned out ahead of time! This will inevitably boost pledges for Children of Zodiarcs!

      I have an odd suggestion for a stretch goal - add other dice than the standard six-siders. Four-sided dice would be great for limiting the possible outcomes, but presumably it would be expensive or even impossible to put a really good side on them like the extra turn. Eight or ten-sided dice could be cheaper to work on but come with the problem that you have that many more sides that might come up. I'm sure there would be more details to work out, but just as a thought.

      oh man I hope this comes to PS4, would prefer to play it there than PC! with trophies if possible! :P

      If you making a PS4 version with controller support please add that feature to the PC version as well.

    15. Christoffer Druvgården

      Pledges rising by the minute! This will come to PS4! As a fan of FF Tactics I would love to have it on Playstation!

    16. Joshua Luttrall on

      Heck ya. So glad this will get reached!

    17. Ben Pronovost on

      YESSS PS4. iOS/Android next? :)

    18. Glenn on

      sweet. if nothing else was offered, this would be a must have for me.

    19. Tracey Craig

      Count me in for a Digital PS4 edition :)

    21. Tiff

      Never mind! Just read what you're going to do! I also backed at the 85$ level. I'm assuming my physical copy will stay on pc?

      So if the stretch goal is hit will we also receive a ps4 copy? Or will we be given a choice?

    24. Mathieu YuHu Zaolow Chancy on

      No physical copy for ps4 ? :o

      If we break the stretch goal for PS4, can we opt to get that instead of PC or Mac?
