#45 Expansions?

Posted by invalidname on 02 October 2014 - 06:56 PM

I guess the obvious thing lots of us would like to see in Tanto Cuore is the expansions: Expanding the House, Romantic Vacation, and the upcoming Oktoberfest.


This might be the rare legitimate use of in-app purchase on iOS: keep the first game cheap (or free?), then charge $10 each for the expansions. I'd buy them all in one fell swoop.

#1982 Unsung Story Project Plan?

Posted by TacticalRPGFan on 01 March 2015 - 05:21 AM

The Unsung Story Kickstarter was funded 2/14/2014, with an estimated delivery date of July 2015. Although there's been somewhat a lack of communication from Playdek, backers recieved a recent update on 2/20 and it seems like Shyla's been making an effort to respond to some threads on the forum (thanks for taking the time to do that, Shyla!).


I develop software for a living, and recently a Go-Live where I work did not go smoothly due to leadership/planning problems. With that in mind - is there a Project Plan or equivalent for the Unsung Story Video Game and the Unsung Story Card Game? If so, could it be presented to backers so we have a better understanding of the progress made so far and what to expect in the future? Even a breakdown of milestones per quarter would be appreciated.


It seems like there's a lot of professional creative talent behind this project, and I'm grateful for the updates we have gotten on the progress so far. Looking forward to contributing more actively as a Design Consultant when the time comes. Shyla, thanks in advance if you see this message and respond!

#1950 Gonna quell all your critiques/Q's regarding the "8-point but not an...

Posted by Gesser on 21 February 2015 - 06:53 AM

Everybody... you can see the faint, invisible outline of a hexagon inside the grid of the top image... see the 8 points & how the diagonals reach nearer to the certain (are longer)?


It's just that the character faces where two sides meet & not to the center of a single side, you get it?


Makes sense.


8-point can match up with hexagonal, it's just that you're not attacking through the diagonal side 'center points' (whereas you're able to on your flanks).


May seem odd now but I guarantee Unsung knows what they're doing with it & it's highly sophisticated.


Besides, you have to understand that there's often a suspension of disbelief with many TRPG's regarding targeting paradigms (for instance, a melee attacker isn't capable of attacking to a diagonal in FFT even though it's equidistant in real-world geometry).


Case closed.


Resume hype.







P.S. yes, I'm also Hunter Bateman from the KS Comments. Nice to meet you all!

#1989 Can you please give us some gameplay mechanics now?

Posted by Gesser on 04 March 2015 - 05:10 AM

How progression will work, or skill-customization, etc.


Give us a preview of a class' abilities, perhaps?


Not to sound ungrateful, but I could care less about story-teasers (esp. since I'd prefer to leave everything story-related unspoiled).


Gameplay is the meat for me & I think it's time to get some solid info. on that front.

#1016 How many Playable Races?

Posted by Gesser on 28 December 2014 - 10:36 PM

I'm curious how many different playable races will exist in Unsung Story?


I would love if we weren't relegated to only plain humans.


I made a thread for a different game where I suggested a Rabbit-Anthropomorphic Species (see here: http://projectphoeni....php?f=18&t=304) & presented some contributing points about including such races.


I think it'd probably fit their game a bit better but examples of races that'd fit Unsung nicely I feel like are:


Angelic/Celestial Beings, Medusa-likes, Ox-kin, & Wolfkin (e.g. Bleu, Bo, Nina, & Ox from BoF I) - http://2.bp.blogspot...1_cast_3603.jpg


Half-Dragons (e.g. Au Ra from FFXIV or Dragonborn from D&D) - http://forum.square-...nced!-The-Au-Ra & http://videogame-art...01_PaulChou.jpg


Half-Demons (e.g. Tiefling from D&D) - http://ericbelisle.c...ing-warlock.jpg


Lizardkin (e.g. Bazba from Suikoden III) - http://vignette2.wik...=20100415163823


Lycanthropes (e.g. Worgen from WoW) - http://www.mrwallpap.../Worgen-WoW.jpg


Winged Folk (e.g. Canopus from Tactics Ogre) - http://ogrebattlesag...iki/Winged_Folk



Would also be great if we had access to some playable creatures similar to FFT... giant ones that comprise 3 or more tiles would be welcome... gryphons, hydras, mountain giants, & etc.

#2028 All posts have been moved in this Forum! Please Read!

Posted by Shyla on 11 March 2015 - 09:45 PM

We have rearranged the forums for the Unsung Story section, so I have been busy moving threads to their new home.


I tried my best to leave a "receipt" as to where they moved to, but I might have forgotten on one or two so if you don't see the link to the new location here, I am sorry, but it is somewhere I promise!


I will close down this section in a bit, just so that everyone has a chance to get accustomed to the changes. Thank you everyone!

#1963 in regards to the character class system

Posted by BeatNasty on 21 February 2015 - 03:25 PM

First of, hi everyone. I haven't posted on here before, so it works be rude of me to not say hello. FF Tactics is one of my favorite games ever, and I am stoked about Unsung Story!!

Since it is in the next update, I figured I would ask some questions about it. The job class system in FF T was done very well, and I hope the system will be similar here. So here are my questions:
1) Will there be carry over from any units from one chapter to the next on non-main characters?
2) Will there be any "secret" classes or abilities like Dark Knight or Ultima?
3) Will there be a class similar to Blue Mage, that van learn and use monster/unique enemy abilities?

Thanks for your patience reading this! I look forward to hearing responses and the next update!

#1925 Can I apply for the 3DS or PS4 Versions?

Posted by Netto on 19 February 2015 - 08:20 PM

I recieved the survey, but I couldn't choose the 3DS or PS4 versions to recieve my copy of the game, so I saw this:

"As Stretch Goals are met you will be able to include those platforms in your selection (PS Vita, PS4, and NIntendo 3DS)."

So I should not answer the survey and wait until it get listed?

Thanks for reading

#1864 "It's important to not leave anyone in the dark" -- Playdek

Posted by DeathMoJo on 16 February 2015 - 03:16 AM

I am at least glad to see something.  I hope the update coming soon is not talking about how off schedule you guys are but rather a release of good information and insight into the game.  I understand that things get busy, things don't work out as planned but a monthly update is not much to ask for.  Most of the games I have backed have that at a minimum and it is a essential part I feel when you are asking people to front money to make your game. 


Granted I am not in the industry but I hope to see more up-to-date information on what is going on and that in time it keeps people interested in this game.  The team behind it has a ton of talent and hope that it is as epic a game as I hope it will be.

#1004 Harvest bug

Posted by grocklin on 25 December 2014 - 02:10 AM

Hi, I think I encountered a bug yesterday.  In a 3p game during the harvest, I ate a clay (pottery) and then killed one animal.  The "undo" sign appeared but the "go forward" green arrow did not.  So I couldn't actually advance through the harvest.  Weirdly, this was fixed if I killed the animal first, and then ate the clay.

I think this may have had something to do with my opponent playing Slaughterman?  Might there be a slaughterman bug involving the slaughterman needing to harvest last?
