JRPG Fan? Project Phoenix is the Kickstarter for You

Kickstarter's brought some amazing projects to light that would have never reached the public under traditional means. As a result, there have been plenty of old school gaming classic reboots and indie projects that have made their way onto the crowdfunding website, hoping to win their share of gamers' wallets.  

Project Phoenix doesn't seek to reboot any classic series, but hopes to recapture the aesthetic of classic JRPGs. It pools together AAA talent of developers who've worked on games like Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, L.A. Noire, Skyrim, and many other well-known titles. The one name that's sure to cinch JRPG fan's hearts is Nobuo Uematsu, of Final Fantasy fame, who will be apart of the project as a composer. 

Project Phoenix will be, unlike most JRPGs, a real time strategy single player game. It's slated to release in 2015 for Windows, Mac, and Linux via Steam. In just one day, it's managed to raise over its goal of $100K and there's no sign that the funding will slow down.
