Kickstarter Check-In: Beloved Rapture
Beloved Rapture is a fantasy RPG inspired by classic SNES titles and developer Rapturous Studio, led by Aaron T. Crawford and Fabian N. Fischer, has just begun a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign for the game. The game features pixel-art graphics with a 16-bit-inspired soundtrack and turn-based combat.
The game follows a young man from the countryside named Johan, as a conflict involving a religious faction called the Aeons gets closer to his home town. He is joined by nine other playable characters, including the son of a shrine caretaker Aiden, and the runaway noblewoman Crystal. There are no random battles, with combat being initiated by coming into contact with on-screen enemies. There are also powerful attacks called Relica, where party members infuse their weapon with magic, but at the cost of large amounts of MP.
Beloved Rapture is currently being developed for PC and Linux, though other platforms will be considered based on the success of the campaign. Rapturous Studio is looking for $12,500 in funding by September 13, 2019. Those who pledge at least $9 will receive a digital copy of the game as part of their backer rewards. The game is currently expected to launch in the second half of 2020.

This is a nice little RPG Maker 2000 project that I know since a while, they already had a Kickstarter campaign in 2014 with 3000$ (search for the game’s title on Kickstarter to see) and an estimated delivery in 2014, we didn’t hear from them for YEARS (no demo or beta) and the next update was in 2018 to announce another Kickstarter.
They hired a guy from Deviant Art to make nice pixel-art instead of the RPG MAKER default resources and he did a good job.
