Strategy Informer: Kickstarter Roundup - Jan 2014

The third of my monthly Kickstart Roundup articles has been up on Strategy Informer for a few days now. Here's a little excerpt to get you in the mood:

Next up we have the tactical RPG Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians, a collaborative effort between the American developer Playdek and Japanese videogame designer and producer Yasumi Matsuno. Although the works of Matsuno are confined to non-PC platforms, his role in creating the likes of Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrant Story makes him one of the great TRPG masterminds of our time.

According to the game's Kickstarter page, Unsung Story will feature similar gameplay to Matsuno's previous TRPG's and will take place over large periods of time in a war-torn, medieval fantasy world. Players will have to make use of a range of customisable units, which have both a class type and a specialised profession, to win battles displayed with a fully controllable 3D camera. No gameplay has been shown due to the game's development being in pre-production – a fact that Playdek are open about.
