JRPG Legrand Legacy Launches on Kickstarter; Pre-Alpha Available for Download
SEMISOFT just launched the Kickstarter for their tactical turn-based JRPG Legrand Legacy. In the game, you play as Finn, a leader of a group of warriors who has to fight off a supernatural invasion in a world that's ravaged by civil war.
SEMISOFT, an Indonesian developer, is taking heavy inspiration from classic JRPGs like Suikoden in which you have to recruit NPCs to restore and expand your castle.
These are the key features detailed by SEMISOFT:
- A fully immersive experience with detailed universe designs in 2D, and a rich storyline.
- 2.5D visuals – 3D models and original assets with stylized hand-drawn 2D backgrounds.
- Stunning in-game 3D cinematics.
- Turn-based combat with Quick Time Event (aka ACT – Action Circle Tempo) that will test strategy and keep players on their toes.
- Put a war general hat on and deploy troops to wars.
- Recruit Non Player Characters (NPCs) to revamp your Headquarters.
- Take on rewarding side quests to find the ultimate loot for your characters.
- Customize items and grimoire that characters can wield, set combat formation, or review the journal to track quests.
- Collect loot from slain enemies and craft items or sell them for quick cash.
- Expected playtime is more than 30 hours.
Henry William Winata, lead game designer at SEMISOFT, talks about his inspirations for in creating Legrand Legacy:
Being a JRPG lover myself, I was heavily inspired by classics such as Legend of Dragoon and Suikoden. Together with the SEMISOFT team, we started to work on Legrand Legacy back in 2014, with the aim to create something that can stand proud among quintessential examples of the genre. Our pre-alpha Prologue Chapter, we believe, really showcases our talent and ability to deliver Legrand Legacy to a standard of which we can be proud of, and that players will find truly memorable. We look forward to hearing your comments!
Legrand Legacy's minimum goal for the campaign is £85,000. A pre-alpha demo can be downloaded on their Kickstarter page and you can try it without even needing to pledge any money.
