This is another game from Arcade Distillery, the same team behind behind Plague Road. They used Limited Run Games to produce physical copies of Plague Road (standard copies were sold on LRG's site and copies sold via Kickstarter had an exclusive cover), but now they're using Eastasiasoft. This Kickstarter campaign is the only way to get physical copies of this game, and on top of that, they're doing LEs that are limited to 250 copies for each platform, making them a real rarity.

Anyone bought already or planning to buy?

What type of game is it?
There are three types of people on GameFAQS...those that agree with me, those that are wrong, and those that are insane

An action adventure/RPG game that takes inspiration from Castlevania, Zelda, and the Mystical Ninja/Goemon series. In their own words: "Players will explore a huge island consisting of room-based regions connected by side-scrolling platform stages." Mixes 2D and 3D graphics.

Wonder why they went Eastasiasoft over Limited Run? Too busy?

Eastasiasoft can likely put the product together for much cheaper, especially since they’re located in Asia, as opposed to having the product manufactured in North America. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard that from LRG or a similar company on twitter when someone was complaining about prices. But at the same time, the argument was being raised in regards to prices of special editions with extra content. Who knows, I was kinda surprised to see this as well. maybe LRG just had a lot on their plate and passed, especially since the product is so far off. I know LRG is also trying to avoid kickstarters, so there’s that to consider.

Maybe they didn't want to spend the thousands on an ESRB rating. Since it's Eastasiasoft, I assume this is technically an Asian region release. If they went with LRG, then they'd definitely have to get it rated by the ESRB.

Why would anyone waste their money on this company? Plague road was garbage and it pains me I wasted my hard earned money on it. Looking at the videos on kickstarter, it seems to be more garbage.

I hope it isn't an Eastasiasoft exclusive.
