Kickstarter helps many video game developers bring their projects to life and today, a much-anticipated RPG has made its way to the crowdfunding service. Destiny Chronicles is a modern-day JRPG that seeks to mix a beautifully rendered world with an old-school feel, a deep story, and very fast and fun combat. Already the game has raised a third of its goal, and with it being on Kickstarter until November 3rd, it has a great shot at being funded fully.
So, what is the game about? Well, you play as a young girl named Celeste. She’s being trained to be a Knight of the Ashen Order. However, during her initiation mission to retrieve an artifact, a young girl steals the very item she was sent to get. Because of this, the Ashen Order fails her. However, refusing to give up, she sets out on a quest to try and get the item back. Along the way, she’ll meet some very interesting characters that’ll both help and hinder her journey.
The team behind Destiny Chronicles had a very simple vision for the game. Make a beautiful JRPG that would have a fun yet deep story driven by its characters, mixed with a battle system that was fast, fun, and customizable. And, we think they did just that. The characters drive the story forward via their interactions with each other, which will make you relate to them more easily.
As for combat, you can pick and choose how Celeste fights, making her much more of a character that is a reflection of your own fighting style than just one thrown at you. Add to all of that a deep quest with plenty of things to do, and you have an RPG that may just be worth backing on Kickstarter. So why not give Destiny Chronicles a shot?
