Chrono Rider is a story driven 2-D action RPG with both single-player and local mutiplayer support.  Korion Studios aims to deliver a thrilling narrative and an immersive gameplay experience inspired by 16-bit RPGs and classic sidescrollers.  Chrono Rider begin its open early-access beta in December 2014 on the PC, followed by a full release in March 2015.  With your support we will be able to afford game engine assets to improve our development.  Multiplatform support is subject to approval and the PC platform is our focus.

Risks and challenges

After months of planning, writing, drawing and programming the vision for the project became vivid and succinct. That was the biggest hurdle to overcome. The second was exposing this to the public eye.

We've written and planned as much as possible up to this point, and with the framework in place we have overcome difficult obstacles with gameplay mechanics and object design. Issues will come, as they always do in any long-term project, but we feel thoroughly prepared; we have the proper tools and skills and with excellent developers with vast wells of knowledge and years of experience prototyping, building, and releasing games. We are incredibly lucky to be involved in this community.

The risks and challenges of this kickstarter is collaborating with our designers and artists, conquering programming glitches and making a unique, refreshing experience for our backers.
