About

You are a new student at a school filled with the best fighters around, everyone proves themselves with weapons or magic. When you show up the school had just started a festival where the schools presidential council is decided by the strength of the student body. You start a club of your own to fight your way through the rankings to one day battle the current council.

Brutal Scales is a tactical role playing game in the style of Shining force and Fire emblem, you recruit others around the school to combat the other clubs. you can decide when to fight other but every group has a rank that might be too difficult to combat early in the game.

Characters

There are 12 playable characters not including the MC.

The Clubs

Development

Jason Rieusset.

I am a solo developer based out of Australia and most of the Programming, Art and Design has been done by me. I am not the best artist as can be seen and I hope to be funded enough to add some custom motion captured animations, if things go really well I might even consider updating the models further using some talented people.

Daniel Brown.

Daniel is a talented 2D artist, he is doing most of the illustrations for this kickstarter page and the game itself. danielbrown.com.au 

Music.

I will be looking for someone to make the music in the future but just at this point I haven't decided how I want it to sound just yet.

Why Kickstarter

In the past I have taught others to use programs like Blender and Unity3D and before that I was trained to Design games and work on different forms of media. While working away I would develop games in my free time and I want to make this my job, I am currently funding the entire development but that can’t last forever. I see kickstarter as a great form of advertising and I hope others see the promise of Brutal Scales. 

This game is greatly influenced by other games like Fire Emblem, Shining Force and elements from many different anime and I feel that the community here on kickstarter would enjoy seeing this game be released.

Current Status

A Lot of the combat elements are complete but there will need to be major re balancing at a later date. Things like save games, AI, inventory, item drops, character recruitment and quests have been implemented.

In the future I need to create a lot of new character models for named characters. Cut scenes and story dialogue only have placeholders so far. I have royalty free music placeholders so I will be replacing them.

Risks and challenges

Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter campaign and my second game to be released (among many prototypes that were never released). So far I have spent a lot of time (3 to 4 years on and off) with so much progress being made in the last 6 months as I have gone full time.
