Chantelise isn’t the only project Carpe Fulgur are working on at the moment; they announced a second project at Anime Expo today, titled Fortune Summoners, by a developer named Lizsoft.

 

Fortune Summoners is a side-scrolling RPG littered with logic and physics puzzles, in addition to hack-and-slash elements. You have a party of three members, and some puzzles require all three of them to solve. Interestingly, Fortune Summoners was developed entirely by a single person.

 

Discussions between Lizsoft and Carpe Fulgur originally took place in late April, at the suggestion of the latter’s fans, and the doujin game localizer got in touch with them to work out a potential deal to publish Fortune Summoners overseas. Unfortunately, due to differences in issues such as stance on DRM, the two companies were unable to reach an agreement at the time.

 

Eventually, an agreement was reached, and Carpe Fulgur already have an English build of Fortune Summoners up and running, and tell us that work on it is “coming along rapidly”.
