Infinite Legacy is a turn-based RPG that takes inspiration from older games, such as Final Fantasy I for the NES. It then takes what is standard and typical of these kinds of games and flips it on its head.
You assume the role of four mercenaries, doing odd-jobs with townsfolk to claim enough coin to survive. As you complete these requests and proceed throughout your journey, you become exposed to the world around you. The world doesn't care about who you are or why you're here or what you're trying to do. It's full of dangerous enemies and deceiving people none-the-less.
There is political corruption and greed, there is lies and murder, and as you begin to uncover the truth about the world and its inhabitants, you will begin to wonder if the beasts and demons you face are worse monsters than the human beings you've met and once trusted.
But, your life is also your own. You are not forced into the role of the knight in shining armor. You are not forced to do good, nor are you forced to do evil. You are presented with countless options to make your own path, and with each decision may come consequences that you must be prepared to deal with, regardless of how unforeseen they are.
The world is shaped by what you choose to do or not do.
There is no definitive goal within the game. One can say that it boils down to killing monsters, collecting loot, leveling up, and becoming stronger to face an unspeakable evil - but the twist is that there isn't any defined evil.
There isn't an ancient demon that's awoken after being asleep for thousands of years. There isn't some mad wizard who aims to destroy the world for his own satisfaction. It is simply a world.
You will be met with tricky situations and hardships, and you will be accused of committing crimes you did or did not commit, and it will be entirely in your hands to decide on the best course of action in those moments.
There is no bad guy. There is no good guy. There is only you, and this world, full of people who are trying to live their life, full of people who will do anything it takes to achieve their goals, full of people who can be trusted, and full of people who you will regret trusting.
Infinite Legacy boasts strong points in its storytelling and it letting the player define their adventure, but its strongest point is in its gameplay. At its heart, Infinite Legacy is alike J-RPG's of the Nintendo and Super Nintendo eras, but in the details, it is so much more.
There is no pre-defined main party. Your characters are your own. You create your band of brothers (and/or sisters) from the very beginning. You decide their class and you decide their name. This lays the groundwork for the strategies you will need to employ when facing your foes.
At the beginning, there are four classes to choose from.
The Adventurer - the stereotypical Warrior of the group who assumes the front line and specializes in dealing with enemies through brute force.
The Scoundrel - the assassin class, utilizing daggers and claw-weapons in its arsenal to quickly and efficiently bring down enemies while pickpocketing them for extra items.
The Mancer - the powerful wizard that utilizes powerful elemental magic to both annihilate their foes as well as bolster their allies in many ways.
The Weaver - the follower of the White Line that focuses on supporting allies so that they may fell their foes with ease.
Each of these classes play very differently in combat, but we wanted more. We felt that four classes were not enough - especially when there are four members in your party. You could simply play one of each and have experienced the diversity all at once, so we expanded upon this.
After a certain point in Infinite Legacy, your classes evolve and advance to four different specializations. In total, this means that Infinite Legacy has 20 different classes. It's hard to say what your first play-through will be like. None-the-less your second, your third, and any other time you decide to try to approach the game in a brand new way.
The level of customization goes even deeper than that. Your characters are not limited to what they can wear. A mage in plate armor? Why not? A knightly-character in cloth? If it fits what you're trying to achieve, make it happen. Infinite Legacy offers a unique system where there are no armor restrictions.
To really bring the point home, you also define the way your characters are built. Each time you increase in level, your characters do not simply gain more health and attack damage, but instead gain points which you may distribute into the bonuses you desire for your approach to playing Infinite Legacy. It's all up to you how it unfolds in this world.
Will you be strong enough to survive it?
The game has actually been in the works for two years at this point, involving many iterations and reiterations of the Infinite Legacy game until we finally decided on where we want it to be.
Because it has been improved and reworked several times before coming into its current finalized state, we ended up going through the majority of the money that we have raised previously. The game has evolved from a side-project to something much more serious.
As it stands, Infinite Legacy continues down the path to creation. It is our dream project and we will do anything we can to see it through to the end, but there are still ways to improve the game further before it is eventually finished and launched. We were also told that many people wanted to back our project, but were not able to do so the last time it was posted because of constraints with time and/or money.
This vast world of ours is massive and there are many more positions for NPC's and quests and other such things to be implemented.
Ultimately, we place this Kickstarter funding because we have the unique opportunity to expand upon our game even further.
We create this to introduce more content, more characters, more of this world to explore, and more stories to be told, and we want your ideas to exist within it - to help mold it and create it, and to help us raise the money necessary to hire programmers, composers, and animators to polish the game to a higher standard and to assist us in creating a bigger, better Infinite Legacy.
Risks and challenges
There are very few risks involved in backing the project, as whether the funding is successful or unsuccessful, Infinite Legacy will see to its end one way or another, it would simply be so much easier to raise some money in order to help the project along.
This is not the first time Infinite Legacy has been pushed to Kickstarter, and all previous backers are still being honored. However, our world is so extensive that we still have ample room for more ideas and more concepts. Funding this project helps us by not only giving us the finances necessary to better improve the Infinite Legacy project, but to also help circulate fresh ideas into our world and help make this vast world of ours a truly unique one.
If you are looking to back a project that is entirely reliant on being funded, then please spend your money elsewhere. All money spent on this Kickstarter will be to help improve an already existing product that is Infinite Legacy.
