While the video game media was focused on E3, Ougon no Kizuna developer Jaleco was teasing something. Their countdown clock expired early in the morning revealing The: RPG.
Everything about the game, even the title, is still tentative. Jaleco explained the setting a bit by describing the protagonist as a dungeon exploring wizard and the world is on the brink of destruction. The official site warns that this information may change so don’t get your heart set on playing a wizard just yet.
What makes The: RPG interesting is Jaleco is incorporating user feedback when developing the game. Right now they’re asking for monster submissions, something that Little King’s Story did too. The submission page doesn’t seem to have many serious designs. There’s a few cats, Dr. Kawashima’s polygon head, and a gloomy carrot.
Jaleco hasn’t said anything if they’re taking any other feedback like artwork for the hero, story suggestions or level design. The: RPG could be an interesting project if Jaleco does all of the above, but right now it’s shadowware. The proposed game doesn’t have a release window or a system.
