just heard about this little kickstarter
. The game is made using RPG Maker, and is more of an action RPG than a JRPG.
You play as Petula, an unemployed, emotionally charged, ill-tempered, otherwise average young woman. With the royal army hot on their heels, the heroes have made their way to your village where they resume scavenging for supplies in everyone's homes. After confronting them for stealing your pendant, they rush off to continue their quest, giving you a quest of your own to retrieve it.
I pledged $10, and it looks like it will easily hit the $12K goal.
