After their successful crowdfunding of Regalia, the devs return to Kickstarter to fund SacriFire, a JRPG inspired by a wide assortment of the best of the genre including “Vagrant Story” and a personal favorite “Xenogears”, both of which influence not only some thematic elements but the active combat system for which the titles were known! Many will draw comparisons to “Octopath Traveler” thanks to a similar combination of both 2D pixel + hand drawn/ hand animated elements, as well as 3D modeled environments making for an aesthetically pleasing choice. There’s a fair bit of information on the broad strokes of game systems, design, story, and other elements to be found on the KS page, as well as a trailer. Its worth noting that SacriFire’s trailer debuted during the E3 PC gaming stream, which no doubt has led to them making it nearly halfway to their $100,000 USD goal on the first day alone! There are an assortment of Stretch Goals offering new classes, mechanics/systems, and DLC , visible up to $350K currently. If Regalia’s crowdfunding is any indication, the benefits of achieving the whole swathe were considerable in terms of game development ; otherwise paid DLC packs were granted to backers freely included, as well!
Developers Pixelated Milk were responsible for the well crafted and enjoyable “Regalia: Of Men and Monarchs” , offering Tactical JRPG combat mixed with city building, kingdom management, and both story and mechanics that managed to be a homage to classic JRPGs while feeling fresh; it even offered native Linux support! They also were the original devs behind “Warsaw”, the strategy title taking features of “Darkest Dungeon” set in occupied Poland during WWII (and apparently have recovered the control of the IP from the do nothing publisher, allowing them to update the game. The plan a massive overhaul with new content called Homecoming, apparently, thanks to this new turn of events). However, their biggest announcement was an entirely new project – SacriFire!
