A message from Yasumi Matsuno, Q&A Sessions, and MORE!


Hello everyone!

Thank you so much for all of your continued support!

We have some really great updates ready for you guys all week long covering game play concepts, story and more character classes to name a few, so stay tuned!

In order to show his appreciation for all of your support thus far with this Kickstarter campaign, Yasumi Matsuno has sent over a special Kickstarter message for all of you! We are beyond excited to be able to share this with you so before we get into the rest of the update here is the video:

Freed from direct team management responsibilities, and with his singular focus on the game design and story, we are seeing some truly inspiring creativity flow from Yasumi Matsuno! We have a brilliant game design document from him as well as an impressive story outline and plot summary for Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians, and are incredibly excited to be able to develop such a rich and inspiring game.

We have seen some of you ask for a story that included mature concepts such as greed and lust, alliances and betrayal, and intrigue and espionage to name a few... it looks like you guys are getting exactly what you wished for from Mr. Matsuno!

In order to give you all a chance to have your questions answered about the game we have posted up a Q&A thread on Reddit. Please, feel free to come here to ask us all the questions you want. Then on Thursday we will post up a video reply with the answers to the five most upvoted questions. So, hurry on down to ask the questions you are dying to know the answers too!

To post your question up now, just click on this link:

Can’t wait until Thursday to get your questions answered? On Wednesday we will host a live video session where you will have the opportunity to ask Joel Goodman your questions about the project. Joel will sit in front of the camera and answer as many questions as he can so make sure to join us for that!

We will announce the time and the URL to the event on Wednesday on our Facebook page here:

Tomorrow we will update you all with two new professions and classes, and answer some questions on character and equipment details we have seen posted in the comments section on Kickstarter. We will also release some story information and will be sure to use caution and mark this information as a “**SPOILER**” so that those of you who do not want to know anything about the game before you start will be able to steer clear from that information. 

Then, on Friday we will post an update that will go over some of the game play mechanics. It will include game play concepts from the talented artists working on Unsung Story here at Playdek.

Thank you so much for your support thus far! 

We’ve come a long way already and still have quite a bit further to go on this journey - so thank you for sharing it with us!

      I've been playing Matsuno games for half my life, so I'm very excited to see his participation. However, I'm also very curious about Christophe's involvement as I very much enjoy his boardgames and think his input on mechanical design will be *very* interesting. What role exactly is Christophe going to play, both individually and in terms of his collaboration with Matsuno?

      Nice update! I wonder if you guys could gather questions to be answered from here too.
      If so, i'm curious about the game having multiple races or not. Will it have multiple races?
      Looking foward to tomorrow and friday updates!
