Carlsbad, CA (PRWEB) January 14, 2014

Playdek, known for its award-winning mobile games, announced today a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds to bring its new RPG tactics game Unsung Story: Tale of the Guardians to PC and Mac. Playdek originally joined forces with master designer Yasumi Matsuno to develop a series of mobile games based on Matsuno’s creative vision. The overwhelming fan response to its partnership with the legendary designer encouraged Playdek to turn to Kickstarter to help it raise $ 600,000 to develop the game across multiple platforms, deepen the content and add to its creative “dream” team.

Famous for designing the classic games Final Fantasy® Tactics, Vagrant Story® and Final Fantasy® XII, Matsuno is known for creating vibrant and immersive worlds and intense, tactical game play. He will design the original story, characters and game world of Unsung Story on all platforms.

“The tremendous outpouring of fan support for our partnership with Yasumi Matsuno and the new creative property Unsung Story prompted us to turn to the Kickstarter community to bring the game to as many gamers as we can with a cross-platform launch plan,” said Joel Goodman, CEO, Playdek. “The Playdek team has a long-history of video game development with AAA titles launching on every major platform, so we’re well positioned to take on this challenge. We’re hoping to enlist our huge fan support and let our audience be a part of something really special.”

With the Kickstarter funds and stretch goals, Playdek also hopes to add well-known composer Hitoshi Sakimoto and translators Alexander Smith and Joseph Reeder to its creative dream team. Additional stretch goals include developing the game for PS Vita and Nintendo 3DS.

“I’m very excited to be creating Unsung Story with Playdek,” said Yasumi Matsuno. “Tactical RPGs are a genre close to my heart, and I look forward to bringing this new experience to gamers everywhere.”

The next step in the evolution of the RPG tactics game Unsung Story presents the epic sweep of history from the eyes of those who make history but are never recognized for it. It represents a fundamental twist on the hero’s story by featuring ordinary individuals who bring about great changes by the small choices they make in life.

Unsung Story introduces players to the fantasy world of Rasfalia where knights, wizards, archers and creatures roam a lush landscape that holds the secret stories of more than half a century of bloody war. Players discover and relive the hidden tales of heroic deeds and uncover the sources of legends.
