Fans of games like Final Fantasy Tactics and Tactics Ogre might be interested in learning of a Kickstarter campaign by 6EyesStudio called Fell Seal: Arbiter’s Mark.
Fell Seal is a tactical RPG set in a fantasy and steampunk inspired setting. The Kickstarter boasts about it’s features: Over 20 character classes, more than 200 abilities, and 40 plus environments. Like the games that inspired it, the core of Fell Seal’s gameplay will feature tactical turn based battles fought on grid over large maps. All of Fell Seal’s graphics are hand drawn pixel art.
Fell Seal’s story revolves around a governing body called the Immortal Council that has overseen the security and stability of world since a savage beast nearly brought an end to it a millennia ago. They do this through the use of Arbiters, an organization that acts like a police force of sorts. The player assumes the role of Kyrie, one such Arbiter.
6EyesStudio is based out of Orlando, Florida and made up of two developers by the name of Christina and Pierre Leclerc. In the past they have worked for both AAA and indie studios and worked on such titles as Madden, Black Sigil: Blade of the Exiled, and Dungeon Hunter 3.
6EyesStudio is asking for $40,000 USD to make their project a reality. As of writing this article they’re currently at just over $16,000 with 23 days remaining. A pledge of $20 or more will get you a Steam or XBox One key for the game. (Or any other platform the game might be announced for down the road.) Some stretch goals include a playable monster race, new idle animations, and outfits, hats, and skin colors. A demo showcasing the first two story missions can be found over at Game Jolt, Itch.io, and Indiexpo.
