Title: Americana Dawn - 16-Bit styled RPG set during the age of discovery.
Post by: Nightblade on September 28, 2011, 09:13:45 PM
I noticed some old school jRPG fans here awhile back, so I thought I'd bring this game to the attention of parties who might be interested. It's been catching some word here and there from a few indie publications (DIY Gamer) and some smaller time niche sites (RPGfan).

*Re-written description on the kickstarter page*
-

Funded entirely by donations (and the authors pocket), this freeware game is being developed by a one man team with bits of commissioned and goodwill help from myself and others. The first half of the game is due for December 20th of this year.

A few gameplay videos:

I can't really afford to put too much into this, but it would be a real damn shame if he doesn't hit his goal.  This title has been on my list for awhile after seeing it linked here; just a damn shame that $3k is all he needs and that isn't getting funded.

The Author's currently putting together a new video for the kickstarter page, also he neglected to actually tell any one of his fans about the new kick starter drive.  :uhrr:

They went over their mark on Kickstarter, which is good.  Interestingly, when he updated the page he also mentioned that the game will be freeware.  That was unexpected.

Yeah, she kind of forgot to mention a few tidbits at first, so she clarified a bit as to where the money is going and the game's price.

The kickstarter has gone so well she's adding extra frames to all of the game's sprites.

Game successfully funded with the end total being just shy of 4,800 dollars. Even though it's a meager sum when compared to other projects on kickstarter, the support has been very humbling.
