 STRETCH GOALS UNLOCKED!

We will continue accepting donations through Paypal for these goals until the game is released!

Aeon Dream Studios: Website Tumblr | Twitter | Facebook | Steam | Echoes Thunderclap!

Mystic Destinies: Echoes (MDE) is the spin-off and indirect sequel to Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons (MDSOA). Echoes is dark urban fantasy that features romance routes and a strong story-first focus that can be enjoyed by any gender.

The original English language visual novel will feature about 15-25 hours of gameplay, depending on your playing speed. This is a continuation of funding from our previous Kickstarter, wherein Echoes was a stretch goal.

Echoes features the antagonists and minor characters of MDSOA in their own adventure and does not require you to have played MDSOA first. We will be releasing more character designs, stretch goals and information as the campaign goes on. 

 

Unlike MDSOA, the common route + five main routes of Echoes will be released all at once as a complete game, with any potential DLC being added later (free for Kickstarter backers if the stretch goals are reached.)

 

 

 

   

1. Aurelia and Pax Meet Again

2. Cillian Meets Pax and Aurelia

3. The Twins Join the Group

4. Iulius Comes to the Group

5. Surprise! A Water Dragon Emerges

 

 

Our previous and current game, Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons is an ongoing otome visual novel that has been in development for over a year. To date, 4 out of 5 routes have been released and are over 5+ hours each.

Each route completely stands alone as a separate game. MDSOA currently has over 370,000 words for 30-45 hours of game play, 64 hand-picked music tracks, 35 character sprites with over 600 expressions and 21 CGs.

You can check out our past visuals below.

 

 

 

 

Stretch goals are new features that are unlocked only if we go beyond our goal. They are set at fixed amounts and allow for creation of more content we wouldn't have ordinarily have made. They will be released to Kickstarter backers for free at no additional cost if their goal is reached but will require additional development time. We will reveal more stretch goals as the campaign goes on.

Please note that our current release schedule is very nebulous right now. However, the average amount of development time is listed for your information.

  • MDSOA: Takumi's Epilogue - January/February 2017
  • MDSOA: Hikaru's Route - 2 months
  • MDSOA: Deluxe Edition + Previous Kickstarters Reward Fulfillment - 1-2 months
  • Mystic Destinies: Echoes - 3~ months

 

 

 

 

Risks and challenges

We are still in the process of finishing the epic Mystic Destinies: Serendipity of Aeons, but we believe our past work speaks for itself. We have fairly short development cycles for all the content we put out (around 3 months for a main story and epilogue) and any delays have been less than a month.

Because of a licensing deal we're trying to obtain, there is a possibility for some slight delay (of under 2 months) but that would communicated to the fans as soon we know of it and would change our production plan accordingly.

We are professionals that have learned to do whatever it takes to get the game out on time and handle any small issues that can occur. We have asked for adequate funding and given an accurate time to get the project done, even accounting for life's little hiccups.
