    Cool Eiyuden Chronicle: Hundred Heroes announced by Suikoden creators for Kickstarter.

    So it looks like the two core creators of Suikoden, Yoshitaka Murayama and Junko Kawano are teaming up with some people to make a new RPG that is like anything on Kickstarter being helmed by old creators, a spiritual successor to their old school game we all love them for.

    In the world of Allraan, different nations fight over magical objects known as the Rune-Lenses. When the Galdean Empire sends an expeditionary force to discover ancient rune-lenses in remote legions, they team up with a local village group, only to discover one and plunge the region in a new conflict over it's ownership. Two young men, from different sides meet and form an unlikely friendship before this conflict begins and drags them into a war neither asked for.

    While I've never played a Suikoden game (or at least enjoyed one, played like an hour of 3 and kinda hated it), I will watch this one with cautious optimism. I love Kickstarter and the success stories, I feel like Japan has had a terribly mixed bag when it comes to throwbacks, especially with crowd funding. Project Phoenix, Unsung Story, Mighty No. 9, all come to mind and leave a sour taste in my mouth. And I'm sure there's half a dozen I'm forgetting. Not to mention some of their more official throwback games that I don't really care for. I've yet to be really interested in a Tokyo RPG Factory game, the original creator of Metroid came back and ruined it with Other M. And they made two Mana games and failed to put in co-op

    It's probably not fair to judge anyone by the mistakes of their peers, but I feel like I've seen more success in throwbacks from the West, and more failures in the East. So I can't help but be jaded and cynical when it comes to this stuff. And on that note I'm surprised this isn't just a mobile game (see Another Eden)

    Western throwbacks have won me over with Divinity: Original Sin, Pillars of Eternity, Wasteland 2, Torment: Tides of Numenera. And I have trouble believing that a good CRPG is easier to create than a good JRPG. So I'm not sure what the problem is. But we shall see, and despite it all I will be rooting for them. But I don't know if I'll throw in financial support. But I'm happy for them and their fans. And if the end product turns out good, I'm not shy about buying it after to support them then

    Well no surprise, but it got it's full funding and is still going. That means we'll see a console release at least. If my finances weren't so troutty right now, I'd help back it up as well cause I feel stuff like Kickstarter is good because it shows full blown publishers that there is still an audience for this and I'm also secretly hoping this will force Konami to make a Suikoden Collection to capitalize on it's release like how they released the Castlevania Collection the same time as Bloodstained came out.

    I like the look of the conceptual art, but not the look of the in game stuff, which reminds me too much of phone games.
