Kickstarter Check-In: Flowstone Saga, Soulash
RPGamer’s ad hoc Kickstarter Check-In feature returns for a look at two ongoing crowdfunding campaigns. This edition features Impact Gameworks’ Flowstone Saga, as well as Artur Smiarowski’s Soulash.
Flowstone Saga is a new title from Tangledeep developer Impact Gameworks set in the same universe. The game is a reworking of the Puzzle Explorers: A Tangledeep Story project, and features puzzle-based combat as players defeat monsters using falling blocks. It is inspired by 16-bit JRPGs and is in development for PC, Mac, Linux, and Nintendo Switch.
Flowstone Saga is set in Ocean’s End, a collection of backwater islands that becomes the site for a showdown between the navy of the Byzankar Republic and the pirate king Borras Crimm. The game stars Mirai, a young woman who arrived at Ocean’s End’s biggest town of New Riverstone a year before the events of the game and made it her home. After finding the Flowstone in a ruins, she gains the ability to use a power known as Flow to create and alter structures.
Impact Gameworks is looking for $20,000 in funding, with the campaign set to run until June 9, 2021. Those who pledge at least $20 will receive a digital copy of the game as part of their backer rewards. Flowstone Saga is currently planned to launch in 2022, with an alpha demo available to download from the Kickstarter campaign page.
Artur Smiarowski’s Soulash is a fantasy roguelike where players control the god-king of the Dreamworld. After being dethroned by a new pantheon, players escape to the mortal realm to seek revenge and cause destruction. The game features turn-based combat with a semi-random open world with destructible terrain, a dynamic weather system, and modding support.
Soulash is in development for PC and is expected to launch in 2022. The campaign is looking for €10,000 in funding and is set to run until May 25, 2021. Those who pledge at least $15 will receive a digital copy of the game as part of their backer rewards. A demo is available to download through Steam and itch.io.
