Yasumi Matsuno (designer of Final Fantasy XII) and Playdek (Ascension) have launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for their new game, Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians. Unsung Story promises to be a turn-based RPG revolving around tales of several ordinary individuals who didn’t necessarily make it into the history books, but nonetheless made an impact on their world. At this point in development, money plays a big role in the success of this game. A single copy of the game is only $20 and players would be able to live the dream through their Linux OS, PC, or Mac computers. If all goes according to plan, the game will be released for various mobile devices, phones and tablets and (if all goes according to plan) the PS Vita will see its own version of Unsung Story.
In addition to fighting mobs, exploring dungeons and utilizing different classes during gameplay, Playdek plans on initiating a map creator project, which is super exciting for those obsessed with customizing the crap out of their own game. If you have an urge to play such an RPG in the first place, you’ll most likely want to make this world your own so you can feel comfortable living here the next few months, at least. Or however long it takes you to perfectionist your way through the various character skill tree scenarios available. So far, we know of a few classes players will soon consume and utilize to do their bidding, or they may fall in love with a certain character and stick them to the back of the barrage bank so they don’t ever get hurt! (See: Strategies for maintaining your MP, via Final Fantasy Tactics Summoners, Scholars, ie. my favorite classes, etc.)
Looks like there’s no such luck in this game, however. The four classes released to the public include the War Mage, Ballast Knight, Polearm Knight and Aerolest–all of which boast assets in the offensive aspect of the battleground. I’m sure there will be a purely healy-type class available soon as well as a main tank at your disposal, but no news has been released on the subject as of yet.
