Developer Visualnoveler has announced that it’ll be relaunching its Kickstarter campaign for 3D fantasy action JRPG, Destiny Chronicles, on September 5, 2018. The first crowdfunding effort, which launched almost a year ago, raised more than half of its funding goal but ultimately fell short of the required amount.
“Although we were unable to reach our funding goal, your belief in Destiny Chronicles means a lot to us,” Visualnoveler said in November 2017. “Once we have a more polished version ready, we will relaunch on Kickstarter.”
The developer is now offering a demo build of the game, a preview of which you can see below.
Here’s an official overview:
Inspired by classic action JRPGs, Destiny Chronicles is an action role-playing game about a squire named Celeste who begins a journey to prove herself worthy of becoming a true knight. Her quest takes her far from her home, across the continent in pursuit of a thief whose actions stem from a sinister plot.Features
