Soul Saga - Update 5
Max’s redesign captures his longing to be closer to nature. He has adopted a bird which houses itself on his head. Max has a very cute appearance normally, but when he’s ready to get serious the helmet slams down to sport his angry face.
For those that didn't know, Toki means rabbit in Korean. So it should come as no surprise that the original design of the Toki were suppose to look more like rabbits. Unfortunately, the feedback I got from the original design was that they ended up looking more like goats. So Aiko-san has come up with an adorable design for the Toki that I have given the thumbs up for. Now we just need your help in deciding which combination of common Toki features Taro will have! Below you will find variations for the tail, hair, horns, outfit, body, and color.
Teal and Purple popped out most to Aiko-san as colors that could possibly fit Taro. Which do you think is best with the current team line up?
We also have the option for the poof of fur at the top of the neck, or no poof. To poof or not to poof, isn't that always the question?
This one is probably the most important choice of them all. We all know a cute anime creature's pride and glory is it's adorable tail; but which one will Taro be wiggling around on his adventures?
As we all know, Taro suffers from an infliction that has rendered him with demon-like horns. Originally we went with 2 tiny little points, but now we are considering 2 large and curving horns, or a single pointy horn. What do you think?
And finally... the icing on the cake: Taro's outfit. We have the option of something similar to the original (left), or we can try something fresh and new (right). It's up to you!

Another Kickstarter To Check Out
The past month has been a bad dry spell for Kickstarter games. In fact, this one is from a backer of ours that has put an incredible amount of polish into their presentation. I'm actually amazed that it's not getting more attention. I think that the recent launches of the big consoles are pulling some attention away from the indie games on here.
If you like cute puzzle platformers with great production value then I think you'll like "So Many Me", made by the guys who worked on some popular indie titles like A.R.E.S. (a really good super metroid inspired game). They only have 2 days left!
