Back this on Kickstarter!
"Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians is the spiritual successor in a storied line of epic tactical RPGs designed by Yasumi Matsuno. Playdek is excited to be partnering with one of the most legendary game designers, as well as you the fans, to bring out a refreshing, immersive new take on the tactics genre.

In the hands of the veteran tactical RPG master himself, Unsung Story will re-imagine a classic game genre, as Yasumi Matsuno weaves together one of the complex and rich game worlds that he is known for, with inspiring class based tactics game play."

When I heard that the man behind Final Fantasy Tactics, Tactics Ogre, FFXII and Vagrant Story was working on a new Tactical RPG I might have grabbed my wallet and started throwing money at the screen. Maybe.

Once my initial fanboy reaction faded I realized that there's really not that much information about the game other than some very nice looking concept art and a list of features they plan to put in the game. The other people making the game (other than Matsuno) is a company called Playdek, which I haven't heard of before.

Currently the game is slated for a DRM-free release on PC, Mac, Linux, and Windows Tablets, with stretch goals for PS Vita and 3DS. Playdek is asking for $600,000 and with 28 days left they're already half way to their goal, so it looks like this is probably going to get funded with no trouble.

Is this something you guys and gals are excited about? Sound off in the comments.
