Worth Checking Out - Soul Saga

I can hardly handle the amount of love put into this project, I feel like the Grinch near the end of his grump spree, except I'm not feeling grumpy, I'm just really endeared by developer Mike Gale. Soul Saga is a return to the JRPG glory days, influenced by classics such as Chrono Trigger, Breath of Fire and Persona.

Using gameplay mechanics inspired by Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy X, Mike Gale has implemented a twist on combat, requiring a level of puzzle solving skills to defeat enemies. It sounds like an interesting mechanic, and if pulled off well could really improve the level of thought process put into each battle. Probably the most exciting thing out of this entire Kickstarter is the awesome soundtrack, it's not an everyday occurrence that an indie title get's a full produced anime theme song, vocaloid and all!

If JRPGs and indie devs toot your fancy, make you way over to the Kickstarter page and think about donating a bit of your monies. The custom figure alone is worth backing it.
