The Lucid Soul Kickstarter campaign has now passed its original funding goal, reaching 102% so far. This is the work of 430+ backers who pledged their support to the classic, top-down, high fantasy, M-rated horror JRPG. With just over a week left in the campaign, and the original goal met, they now set their sites on the next funding tier. To reach it, backers must raise about $25k more, and if that milestone is reached, the following will be added to the game:
- String player gamer Diwa de Leon, who will join the music with his violin and expertise.
- Duet for the soundtrack with Alyssa Gerwig aka SpectroliteAAA.
- A free enamel pin for backers who have pledged $20 or more.
According to the press release, developer Jon Bookout is bringing the game to Steam and itch.io for certain. Note that the game does not yet have a page on itch.io. If further funding milestones are passed, it may get ported to Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X | S, and PlayStation 5 as well.
Lucid Soul sees you step into the shoes of a villain called Scyth and his band of Deathtouched in the world of Trebezia. Gods and Goddesses will try to stand in your way in a story of conquest, but you’re the villain so you’ll find suitable ways to deal with them, won’t you! Enjoy turn-based combat, and retro-styled pixel art anime visuals in 30 or more hours of gameplay.
The game is currently set to release sometime in October of 2022. You can find out more at the links above or at the official website.
