'Prodigy' Kickstarter Campaign A Rousing Success - Trailer

by Rainier on May 6, 2014 @ 9:16 a.m. PDT

Prodigy is a tactical RPG game that combines high quality figurines with video games, bringing players into a universe rich in fantasy and action.

Prodigy, powered by Unreal Engine 4, features squad-based figurine combat and takes advantage of NFC (Near Field Communication) technology and a USB game board to bring the game alive on screen.

Prodigy uses NFC technology to create a link between the real and the virtual as players position figurines on a USB game board, which immediately warps the characters into the heat of battle in the game world. The single player campaign takes players on an epic narrative with a company from the world of Thasys, powering up each of the heroes along the way. Multiplayer gameplay focuses on squad-based combat with fast paced player-on-player combat, an intense battle of wits where the only best strategist survives.

Hanakai Studio has successfully concluded the Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming tactical RPG Prodigy, backed by the Kickstarter community in excess of $200,000 (more than twice their goal!) and surpassing their initial goal of $100,000 in only three days. More than 1,100 backers pledged their support, enabling the indie development team to open up early access to the Prodigy alpha, launching later this year.

Eager backers also unlocked two stretch goals during the Kickstarter campaign including Path of Survivors, a completely new Arena Mode and special figurines known as “War Trophies.”

You will play with a Company, a group of adventurers devoted to one of the Factions of the world, Thasys. Each character is represented by a figurine of exceptional quality that carries its own characteristics and story, and is dedicated to one Company.

Your choices, the characters of your Company, their evolution and your tactical thinking will win numerous battles, making you one of the heroes of your Faction.

In the world of Thasys, most races rely on Mana to survive. This magical energy is now growing scarce, and wars for survival are devastating the land as magical beings fight over the last scraps of Mana.

Entire civilizations are destroying each other. The end draws nearer as the All-Mother of Darkness threatens to devour all worlds.

The Eris comet has flown through the sky, heralding the time for new champions to appear. A few chosen ones, children of the feeble and powerless humans, are rising to save Thasys.

These prodigies are our last hope.
