Retro Tactical RPG Dragon Fin Soup Will Grace PS Platforms

If you're looking for a retro tactical RPG, indie team Grimm Bros has the game for you.

It's Dragon Fin Soup, a successful Kickstarter endeavor that is now coming to PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Vita, PC, Mac and Linux platforms. You can learn all about it over at the PlayStation Blog.

Boasting turn-based combat and a classic 2D top-down presentation, the game might remind you of Rainbow Skies and several other old-school 16-bit RPGs. You play in the mystical world of Asura, which evidently rests on the back of a humongous "dragon-turtle." We'll learn more about our intriguing, unique environment through a series of scripted events and quests, as well as procedurally-generated content.

Red Robin is the game's first playable character, and she's on display in the trailer below. There are still about three weeks left on that Kickstarter campaign, so pledge now! Getting the number up even higher will result in future expansions, and you'll be helping to cover the porting costs to the PlayStation platforms.

It's sad to see my favorite type of RPG gameplay (turn-based) only being used for these low budget games.

If it's any comfort, remember it was just a few years ago that everyone bemoaned the supposed death of 2D games, but now we get great ones all the time with graphics that frankly put the classics of the format to shame.

I'm glad to have helped this project see completion. If you love this type of game, as i do, then don't bemoan their fate. If we don't become part of the solution, we become part of the problem.
