Default Saga Heroes - Kickstarter Now Live

February 27th, 2014, 09:32
Wasatch Games has launched their Kickstarter for Saga Heroes asking for $10,000. As promised here is the link, and some more information about the project.

Saga Heroes is an action/adventure RPG that is played from a top-down perspective, very much inspired by classic action/adventure games on the SNES, but we've added our own unique blend of adventuring, role playing, and action. As you explore, you will complete many quests along the main storyline, and will also have the opportunity to help NPCs by doing their side quests.

You start in the small village of Aria, with the clothes on your back and nothing more. Gain the trust of the townsfolk by completing their quests and uncover the secrets of the Shadow Cabal. Explore the world of Gaia and discover the rich lore behind it all
I also have some screenshots, and the trailer from yesterday.

More information.

Impressive music for an inexpensive Kickstarter. The graphics and game play look at least serviceable so perhaps this is a very short game?

The project dances around SNES.
I hate SNES. I don't want to back a SNES game. And some people don't even know what it is.

Also it says "offers a rich and deep experience that you won't find on mobile". That's far from truth. This is the xth time I'm mentioning Chaos Rings 2 and Sacred Odyssey. I'm not saying you should make an epic game like those two, but saying there is no rich and deep phonegame is too much.

The project text IMO should be reworked ASAP. Or maybe not? The goal is small enough and as such it'll be achieved most definetly.

No matter. It's now as it is, for the next project, if it'll be on KS, I can only suggest avoiding SNES and comparing with existing phonegames, but instead more concentrating on the product presentation.
And definetly keep that music composer hired for future products!

This will be a JRPG-like game then?

Thank you for your feedback. I updated the text to say "Saga Heroes offers a rich and deep experience that is rare on mobile and OUYA"

About the SNES. I had to find a market somewhere and sort of specialize in that area. The game is far from a clunky SNES game, but is very much inspired by them. Once I get the time to work on the PC demo I hope you try it out and pass judgement afterward.

And please keep the feedback coming. I've never had as much useful feedback from a community RPGWatch is great!

Good job! I like it. And I bet others will like this more than previous text.

I backed it. Certainly doesn't look like one. See where it goes from here I guess.

We satisfy our endless needs, and justify our bloody deeds, in the name of destiny, and in the name of God.
