At the end of last year Semisoft’s PC JRPG Legrand Legacy failed to reach its Kickstarter funding goal but that’s not the end of the project.
In an update from the team today they revealed that they will be returning to Kickstarter following funding from an interested party. Due to the fact additional funding has been found, the new Kickstarter will aim to raise £40,000. Semisoft posted:
“During the holidays we were approached by a group who sees the potential in Legrand Legacy, and we have secured a deal with them to cover part of the development costs for Legrand Legacy as long as we can secure the rest with a new Kickstarter campaign! This will allow us to lower the funding goal for Legrand Legacy to £40,000 for this second go.”
The new Kickstarter campaign is set to go live on Wednesday 18 January and an updated pre-alpha build will also be released.
Backers who pledged in the first campaign will also have to back the new campaign once it’s live. It looks promising so keep an eye on this one.
