Cat Rage Room
Default UNSUNG STORY: TALE OF THE GUARDIANS: TRPG KICKSTARTED BY YASUMI MATSUNO

Check it out.

Some of you are aware that Yasumi Matsuno, (mastermind of Tactics Ogre, Final Fantasy Tactics, Vagrant Story, and to an extent, FFXII) are among the list of 'game creators I'm most likely to fellate'. A few years ago Yasumi Matsuno stepped down from Square Enix and went freelance, and this is his next big project he's trying to fund with Kickstarter. Unsung Story will be in a similar creative vein as he's previous projects, with a tactics RPG approach with a detailed world, usually based off of real world themes.

At the time of this topic, about 250,000 dollars has gone into Unsung Story, and since it's Yasumi fucking Matsuno, I'm pretty confident in it. Talk about this!

In other words, the same shit he's been doing since Tactics.
Which Tactics?

jk'ing.

Im pretty excited I love his work and I think Mobile really lends itself well to the genre, I'd love to take a crack at this on my tablet.

That said though the game is coming to Droid/iOS regardless if this Kickstarter is successful. Heres the interesting bit (and honestly its way to hidden on the page), if they reach the goal the main platform for the game will shift from mobile to PC/Mac (and 3ds?) and they will modify the game to be based on a more serious platform.


So heres hoping they reach goal because the game would potentially be much much better with the extra cash.

The best thread ever created. Funding this shit now. Only plebs and casuals wouldn't be interested in this, or those uninitiated to his genius.

The French guy he's teaming with seems mighty cool too. Yoshida looks way too creepy for someone who's obsessed with asses but I'm glad he's on board too.

Yeah I'm trying to spread the word on this as well. The pace is going good and I definitely think it'll reach its base goals, but I'd really like it to hit some of those stretch goals.

Looks interesting, Vagrant Story stands at #3 on my favorite games of all time list.
FF Tactics might be amazing as well if I can figure out how to play it.

What do you have trouble with? Your posts are always insightful so I wouldn't mind helping.

The strategic key to success at FFT largely hinges on trajectory and distance, press a button to figure out an enemy character's range and where they can attack, so put a square between you and their blue radius.

Make it difficult for mages to scoop you into spells as they hit adjacently. Hell, game's a cinch.

So this is crazy. Apparently FFT wasn't designed to have Charge times?

Q: "FFTA and FFTA2 moved away from Charge/cast times, which I felt heavily took away from the depth of those games. Will Charge/Cast times be a core component of this game? One of my favorite mechanics in FFT was casting time."

A: Sorry, there won't be casting times in this game. In fact, the reason why FFT included a casting time system at all was to allow the game time to load graphic effects. This was a necessary consideration due to PlayStation loading times and memory concerns. Speaking as a developer back in those days, I can tell you that we weren't happy with it.
So much of the game seemed based around charge times, it's almost hard to believe it wasn't originally supposed to have them.

Holy shit. That's an eye opener. No wonder so many Jobs became obsolete and just stupid to use.

Do you have to back using Amazon.com, or am I just dumb and not seeing the other options?

Do you have to go though Amazon.com, or is there an option for Amazon UK somewhere?
