Children of Zodiarcs is a stunning love letter to the JRPGs we grew up with that includes a compelling story and beautiful artwork. You play as a couple of young girls who become thieves to take the oppressing class out of power. This game combines tactical turn-based battle sequences with deck building and even dice building mechanics. Not only are the characters diverse, but the story is fascinating and the gameplay is intriguing. I love the way that this game has started out, and I love even more that it met its funding goal of $34,422 USD ( $50,000 CAD) within 2 days. I am excited to see yet another group of talented people break away from the triple-A industry and begin crafting their own stories.
For full disclosure, I have pledged $14 USD ($20 CAD) to this project.
