Children of Zodiarcs is a tactical JRPG with collectible cards and craftable dice combined with classic tactical gameplay, rich story, and memorable music.

Children of Zodiarcs, inspired by games such as Final Fantasy Tactics, Shining Force, and Tactics Ogre, is a story-driven, single-player Tactical JRPG that combines traditional strategic gameplay with the thrill of collectible cards and craftable dice!

Zodiarcs is a game that engages you at every moment with a sophisticated story, memorable characters, and gameplay that provides countless opportunities for strategizing the ultimate victory.

The project’s original goal for the campaign was CAD 40,000, but the popularity of the campaign meant that target was reached in the first couple of days. The previous highest-funded project supported by Collective was Tokyo Dark, from Japan-based developer Cherrymochi, which ended its campaign at CAD 225,000 from a CAD 40,000 target.

Children of Zodiarcs developer Cardboard Utopia, based in Montreal, has plenty of experience in the development of a range of games previously, including Assassin’s Creed, Far Cry, The Warriors and Eternal Darkness.

“We’re incredibly happy for the Cardboard Utopia team – their project has really resonated with people keen to play a new game in the tactical JRPG genre,” said Phil Elliott, creator and project lead on Square Enix Collective. “We’ve watched the evolution of Kickstarter videogames funding, and for teams without a well-known franchise or famous designer, crowdfunding is getting much tougher – so we’re really happy that we’ve been able to help teams hit their targets.”
