Indie developer Random Potion has announced the Kickstarter campaign launch for their upcoming title Ignis Universia: Awakening of the Erudite Empress. In order to give players a taste of their title, the developer has also released a free demo of their game so that players can try out a small portion of the game before pledging to the title.
Since the launch of the campaign last week, the game has found itself 134 backers and nearly 15% of the total amount has been pledged already with 24 days to go. The total goal of the campaign is £40,000. In the game, players will be able to play through a distinct storyline and explore a beautiful world.
The game is filled with different NPCs that players will be able to meet and speak with. Different puzzles will also test the creative side of the players. In the game, each of the Chosen Sisters possesses unique powers that players will be able to utilize as they progress through the game’s unique and quirky storyline.
Check out the Kickstarter trailer for the game below:
Arto Koistinen, Lead Designer said:
I’m excited to continue the story and have the ability to flesh out the characters from the original game. The battle system also gets an overhaul and a lot of added depth, something I’ve already done with previous games like Rimelands and Trulon, both of which received a lot of praise for their combat mechanics.
Funding the game via Kickstarter gives us a direct line to the players and complete creative freedom, which is useful when dealing with a game as quirky as Ignis Universia. Transparency and communication are important to us and we’ll be in contact with the backers throughout the project.
Key features of the game include:
- Straightforward but tactical 100% turn-based battle system
- Lovable, 4th wall breaking cast of characters
- Story that parodies and references the genre, other fiction, and music but also has a serious side
- Cute summonable creatures
The developer details that Ignis Universia: Awakening of the Erudite Empress is a love letter to classic JRPGs and Visual Novels. You can try out the free demo for the title and if the game clicks your fantasy, you can head over the title’s Kickstarter page and pledge.
