Project Phoenix - Delayed Until 2018

by Aubrielle, 2015-12-11 22:49:32

Project Phoenix, the too-good-to-be-true Kickstarter JRPG project from 2013, has been delayed again till 2018Hmm.  Thanks, Couch.

On September 11, 2013, the Kickstarter project Project Phoenix successfully ended, raising just over $1 million for a game they estimated would be out in March of 2015. Last night, the people behind the project announced a bit of a delay. They’re now aiming to ship the game in late 2018.

Project Phoenix, which promised to “set a new standard of excellence for the Japanese gaming industry,” raised a number of red flags when it first went live. In addition to targeting a very small amount of money for game development—their original goal was just $100,000—the campaign made many lofty promises that seemed tough if not impossible to deliver. As veteran RPG designer Robert Boyd pointed out rather presciently, the warning signs were all there.
