I ran across this Kickstarter the other day.  The game is a Japanese-style RPG that appears to be modeled after the original Final Fantasy.  There are a lot of RPGMaker RPGs like this, but what struck me about this one is the size and scope. 

    40+ hours of dynamic gameplay
    15+ additional hours of immersive side quests
    1+ hours of interspersed flashbacks
    200+ compositions from talented, independent artists
    50 mind-bending puzzles
    200+ tracked achievements
    500+ unique paths by virtue of the non-linear gameplay
    701 page comprehensive Strategy Guide and walkthrough
    Thoughtfully-crafted storyline with memorable characters
    Classic turn-based battle system and graphics
    Adjustable difficulty level and custom scripts
    4-character party selected from 8 unique classes
    Leaderboards! (visit our website at

From looking through the strategy guide and playing a little of the demo, the game looks to be massive.  The "Collections" page in the game menu shows 900 treasures to collect, 90 locations, 200 items to craft, 70 different types of fish to collect, etc.  The Kickstarter is actually raising money for the sequel, as the game is already finished and is set to be released on July 31.  $15 gets you to game, while $25 also gets you the sequel when it is finished.

Massive looks to be an understatement here.

I haven't played a 'classic' Final Fantasy style RPG in forever...I might toss $15 onto this to get the first game.

A 700 page strategy guide?   eek 

Retro'ish games only go so far with me and have to have a really good story to keep me interested (a la To the Moon or Final Fantasy 6).  This looks like the 16-bit equivalent of Skyrim...can't imagine it being terribly compelling.  Hope I'm wrong.
