A Kickstarter campaign has begun to fund the development of the first episode of Light Fairytale, a turn-based JRPG that is designed to “bring back the immersion and emotion of 90’s JRPGs, but with modern graphics and gameplay systems.”
The campaign contains few new details about Haru’s journey through the underground world of Light Fairytale, although it does give a firm release date of July 2017 for its launch on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam. Only the first episode will launch at this time, with no details on when future episodes will become available.
Light Fairytale, previously Project Light, begins with Haru having a dream about grassy plains and blue skies despite never having seen them, having spent his whole life underground. A lighthearted adventure soon follows, one that pits him against the rulers of this underground society while making friends and allies along the way.
