Yes! I have confirmed that I am able to get you keys for a DRM-Free distributor! I haven't chosen which one I will use yet, but I can safely promise you will be getting a key for each digital copy you pledge for!
Nope. Soul Saga uses a battle initiation system similar to Chrono Trigger. Most of the time you can see enemies roaming around, and making contact with them initiates combat. Some other times they may even ambush you!
The character models you see are what I was able to gather using my out-of-pocket budget. After the Kickstarter they will all see enhancements that will greatly improve their visual design. The environmental art used is actually stock art. If the project reaches a certain stretch goal, then I can bring on an environmental artist to custom make all the environments to fit the characters and world like a glove!
Yes! The Episode 1 means that it's the first in a series for the story of Mithos and his Guild. Episode 1 should be at least 15 to 20 hours in length, but could become even larger depending on how well the Kickstarter does!
Only if you help it get there! Steam requires all indie games go through a process called Greenlight. Greenlight requires a LOT of votes to let a game make it onto the Steam store. If you have a Steam account, please upvote Soul Saga on Greenlight. If Soul Saga is Greenlit before the game is released, then I will try to get all $15 and up backers a Soul Saga key for Steam!
