Review: Fantasy Life

One of the biggest gripes I hear from friends interested in but hesitant to play Japanese role-playing games is that they're too "complicated." It's a sentiment I've never understood; several take great pains to be accessible...

The Kickstarter for the intriguing Project Phoenix is done, and it's soared past the one million dollar mark. With talent like the legendary composer Nobuo Uematsu and artist Kiyoshi Arai attached, it's no wonder this project...

There's a lot to digest here. Project Phoenix is an indie JRPG with real-time strategy elements. Its Kickstarter campaign will launch in a few days and it's asking for $100,000. Heading the project is Hiroaki Yura. Kiyoshi Arai (Final Fantasy XII, Final Fantasy XIV) is the art director and the music is coming from none other than famed Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu in his first work on an indie game. You had me at Final Fantasy XII -- its possibly my favorite in the series, in no small part because of its art direction -- but Uematsu, too?

The project also features veterans of Halo 4, Crysis 3, LA Noire, and more. It's not just an Eastern affair. It also boasts some unannounced members, including, a "secret designer from a leading anime mecha title that changed the course of Japanese pop culture’s influence in the world." Does that mean Hideaki Anno of Evangelion fame?

Also, one of the Kickstarter backer rewards will put you in the game as an NPC, "such as a bar owner," with your own personal theme music composed by Uematsu himself. Take all my money.

Contest: Win a signed postcard from Nobuo Uematsu!
by Mr Andy Dixon

[Update: Contest over! Winners are CharlieWhistle, Scary Hair Studios, and kingsharkboi!]

Final Fantasy composer Nobuo Uematsu is an amazing man. In addition to his musical prowess, he's also just released his first e-book, titled Blik-0 1946. The book looks fantastic and is set to Uematsu's own original score, and you can buy it right here if you'd like!

When our own Jayson Napolitano talked to him at SDCC last month, he was kind enough to sign three Blik-0 1946 postcards to give away to the Destructoid community. Sweet! For a chance at one of these collector's items, just leave a comment below. You have until this Friday, August 9 at 11:59 PM Pacific to enter. Oh, and we'll mail these to anyone in the world!

Good luck!
