Re:Legend, the game described as a “co-op monster-raising RPG”, has exhausted its time on Kickstarter. The game’s proposed $70,000 goal was absolutely smashed in less than a day of the project being live. It then steadily shot through stretch goals until today when the time ran out, with all 13 stretch goals achieved and $630,700 pledged.
The developers, Magnus Games LLP, have certainly created something that many hopeful players are excited for. The game promises to be “An all-encompassing RPG-simulator hybrid with strong monster-raising and multiplayer features.” It was heavily inspired by the Monster Rancher series and boasts taming and raising “magnus” or monsters, a farming system, other skills like fishing and mining, character customization and so much more all wrapped up in a world you and up to three friends can travel through.
Not only was the game rather impressive, but the names attached to the soundtrack also brought quite a bit of attention to the project. Names attached to Final Fantasy and the Metal Gear series were brought on board and the whole thing was recorded live by the Video Game Orchestra for one of the stretch goals.
Thanks to the 7,385 backers, Re:Legend will be coming to PC, Xbox One, PS4, and the Nintendo Switch. Some backers will be receiving physical art books, plushies, and even the chance to collaborate and design their own magnus or weaponry depending on what tier they pledged.
Now that the game has been successfully funded the team over at Magnus Games LLP will be working tirelessly to achieve the goals their Kickstarter has made possible for them. The game aims to be released in June of 2018 but a Beta will hopefully be coming out sooner than that. Whether or not you participated in the Kickstarter, be sure to keep an eye on the game’s progress through their official website.
