Co-op monster-raising RPG Re:Legend launched its Kickstarter campaign on Thursday (Jul 27). Within a few hours, the game has already crossed the S$70,000 funding goal that developers Magnus Games were looking for.
With the launch, Magnus Games also announced its collaboration with three composers: Shota Nakama, founder of the Video Game Orchestra and best known for his work on Final Fantasy XV, Falk Au Yeong, whose portfolio includes audio work on film and anime as well as video games, and Yoshitaka Suzuki, who has contributed to franchises like Metal Gear Solid and Final Fantasy.
You can listen to three sample tracks here:
Re:Legend is a multiplayer RPG-simulator hybrid featuring monsters, called Magnus. You’re washed ashore on the island of Vokka, and you must now build and expand your village through a huge variety of activities (you can see fishing and farming in the trailer above) while collecting and raising those adorable Magnus. Re:Legend will release on PC (Windows). PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch releases will come if Kickstarter stretch goals are met.
There are multiple tiers for Kickstarter backers, and backers can get rewards like Beta access, limited edition Magnus plushies, digital or physical art books, designing a Magnus and its evolutions, or even appearing as a villager NPC in-game.
