Dreamken Studios is currently developing a 2D RPG called Whilom: Sins and in order to get the project off the ground it has set up a Kickstarter campaign.
The game, which is described as a hybrid between fighting games like Streets of Rage and adventure titles such as Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger, will be released on PC and Mac should it acquire the $25,000 the developer is asking for. However, additional stretch goals have already been added and if $80,000 is obtained Whilom: Sins will make it to Wii U, as well as the PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and Vita.
Set in a seemingly post-apocalyptic environment, Whilom: Sins sees you take control of Ceon, a government agent sent who's been sent on a mission to locate and dispose of the remnants of a secret order that has been conducting human experiments.
The bulk of the gameplay takes on the style of a brawler, where you travel from left to right fighting foes along the way. However, this is an RPG too and battling enemies allows you to build up experience, which can be spent on leveling up individual elements of your character.
The Wii U version would release in the eShop at some point in 2014 if it gets funded.
