Dragon Fin Soup, the flagship title for nascent indie RPG game studio Grimm Bros, has started a Kickstarter campaign. The developers are targeting a minimum of $24,000 to “add additional polish, features and content” to their title, which is slated for release this year on the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, PC, and PlayStation Vita.
The game contains a pretty dark storyline (the darker the better in my opinion), as players take on the identity of Red Robin. An alcoholic and bounty hunter by trade, Robin loses her memory, and when she attempts to move on with her life, the past inevitably catches up with the present. Along with the pure joy that’s derived from supporting indie game developers, backers will be treated to art books, t-shirts, engraved crystals and hand-drawn illustrations.
“Dragon Fin Soup is our debut title, and we’ve been pouring our hearts and souls into crafting a fantastic game experience,” said Grimm Bros CEO Ash Monif. “As an indie studio comprised of veteran developers, we see Kickstarter as a great platform to connect with gamers and make Dragon Fin Soup a phenomenal experience.We’re indie because we really want to make the kind of games we would personally enjoy playing and don’t want to compromise our vision to outside influences. Dragon Fin Soup reflects that in every way.”
The game’s mixture of classic console RPG style storyline along with a dash of the dungeon crawling dynamic (not to mention the excellent title) has me intrigued. For more info on the game, check out its official page.
