On this edition of the Indie Stash Cast, Todd and Blane talk with Hiroaki Yura, the lead developer for Project Phoenix. This title combines traditional JRPG story telling elements with strategic RTS gameplay in a way that has never been done before. The game is being created by a host of AAA talent from all around the world, whose list of games includes: Final Fantasy, Diablo III, Halo 4, The Elder Scrolls: Skyrim, and many more.

Blane and Todd talk with Mr. Yura about the success of the project on Kickstarter, and how he went from a goal of $100,000 to getting over $1 million with over 15,000 backers. They also talk about the way Project Phoenix will differentiate itself from other JRPG’s and RTS games as well as how players will be able to interact with the game.

Hiroaki gives us a first look into the characters, enemies, story, and gameplay in this episode of the Indie Stash Cast! As an added bonus, find out what he meant by “Fight Inside the Kraken!” Trust us, it will blow your minds.
