Please tell me we have some fans of the old school Battle Chasers comic in here.
Not only is the series being revived, but it's bleeding into other forms of multimedia! Airship Syndicate, comprised of artist Joe Madureira (original creator) and a creative team, with which some he worked alongside making the Darksiders series, are bringing this story to life as a videogame.
The Kickstarter launched last week and has already been funded, though some stretch goals have yet to be met.*
Some details about the game:
- Battle Chasers: Nightwar is an RPG featuring deep dungeon diving, turn-based combat presented in a classic JRPG format, with tons of secrets and randomly-generated levels which make for great replay value.
- It is a 'love letter' to the creators favorite genres of gaming: the JRPG, inspired by legends like Final Fantasy, Suikoden, Chrono Trigger, and Phantasy Star. While many greats continue to come from Japan, very few western developers are creating them.
- Planned for PC and Mac (both on Steam and DRM-free on GoG), Xbox One and PS4
