Project Phoenix Reaches Funding Goal on Kickstarter in nine hours, the Dream JRPG is a Go

Just today I reported about Project Phoenix, the indie JRPG launched on Kickstarter by a dream team of Japanese and western developers led by Hiroaki Yura and including Nobuo Uematsu as Lead Composer.

If you had any doubts, funding is going really well. As a matter of fact, it’s going so well that the minimum funding goal of $100,000 has just been reached and surpassed. At the moment of this writing the game is sitting on $107,686 and speeding towards the first stretch goal of $300,000, that will grant the project twice as many monster and character models and an extended soundtrack written by Uematsu-sensei.

If you still didn’t pledge your support, you can do so here.

The game is set for release in 2015 for PC, Mac, Linux, iOS and Android, with PS4 and PS Vita versions currently being negotiated (with a 90% chance to happen according to the development team).

Definitely a multi-platform gamer, he still holds the old dear PC nearest to his heart, while not disregarding any console on the market. RPGs (of any nationality) and MMORPGs are his daily bread, but he enjoys almost every other genre, prominently racing simulators, action and sandbox games. He is also one of the few surviving fans of the flight simulator genre on Earth.
