A charming hybrid tactical action RPG with roguelike elements, Dragon Fin Soup is set in a world inspired by fairytales and classic JRPG’s.

Set in a beautiful, high-resolution World, Dragon Fin Soup features deep RPG mechanics, tactical decision making, turn-based but action oriented controls and serves the player with witty humor and deeply flawed characters, complete with original stories, crafting, fishing, gathering, pets and many other fun features.

The Dragon Fin Soup team raised 500% of their funding goal with a total amount of $119,719 from 4044 backers and simultaneously passed four stretch goals that bring a host of a new game features.

“The kickstarter campaign for Dragon Fin Soup has been a real rollercoaster of emotions. Our initial expectations were blown away, by an awesome community of backers who allowed us to quickly reach our funding goal and then supercede it”, said Grimm Bros CEO, Ash Monif. “We are excited that our concept hit a sweet spot with so many gamers out there and we look forward to delivering our vision in 2014”.

The Kickstarter stretch goals gave gamers the opportunity to determine the scope and scale of  Dragon Fin Soup, and allowed backers to unlock four new features including the endless labyrinth mode, Asian weapons pack and clothing sets, the sheep quest, and playable skeletons in survival and labyrinth mode. Rewards for backers include limited edition music boxes, art books, plushies, t-shirts, art prints, engraved crystals and hand-drawn illustrations.

The world of Dragon Fin Soup begins on the back of Asura, a giant dragon-turtle god who swims the multiverse of space-time, players choose to unravel the tale of their character in Story Mode or embark on a journey to discover the wilds of Asura in Survival Mode. With a variety of compelling locations to explore including spider forests, ice caves, abandoned mines, scorching deserts, mushroom forests and haunted mansions, Dragon Fin Soup kicks off the action with the tale of Red Robin, whose bloody dark past comes back to haunt her with a vengeance.

Story mode focuses on storytelling, character progression and exploration. Beginning in a country village where players learn the mysteries of the world and encounter a custom blend of scripted events, crafted story quests and procedurally generated missions.

Survival mode plays like a classic Roguelike and is designed for the thrills and scares that come with exploring the dungeons, permanent death, fighting monsters and surviving to achieve the highest scores.
