An indie tribute to J-RPG classics. Explore a universe blending fantasy with science-fiction, intense ATB battles and branching story. The Kickstarter has reached 21% of the goal already, and it's trending to hit waaaay over the goal if you trust Kicktraq.
The best bit about it is they offer a Linux demo download (it doesn't work for me), so it certainly seems like Linux will be a first-class citizen for them, and "Linux" is in the title and video thumbnail. I still won't suggest backing it due to failed promises from so many developers, but I certainly won't stop anyone!
The trailer certainly makes it look pretty, but it is a Unity game, so we can't expect it to have super performance on Linux. We certainly do need more great looking RPG games like this though, so I really do hope they make it, and I would be shocked if they didn't.
I spoke to the developer over email about their Linux demo not working, and they stated this:
Linux demo is actually functionnal but it seem there is some "mysterious tricks" that make it work, actually we don't have done enough test to stabilize the linux demo on every systems but it work on many of them (we tested it on linux debian x64 with x and nvidia drivers)
We'll try during the campain to do more fixes to the linux demo
They also asked for a debug log in a later email, which I have sent them. Hope it helps them fix it up.
