According to the developers, Crystal Kingdom is the successor of the fan game SEYKEN, which was the first JRPG that tried to truly emulate the graphical style of the 16-bit console classics. The game also had an incorporated co-op, through online capability.
Looking through the video's and the screenshots, this is looking like we could be onto a Winner here and as most of our kickstarter/IndieGogo articles have gone on to be a success, I really hope this does as well. For all the fans of the JRPG such as Chrono Quest or even Final Fantasy, Crystal Kingdom will take us back to those days, but with a far more modern work over, yet keeping the 16bit style.
Once again, as from the previous version, Crystal Kingdom will have a co-op mode as the developers want us to work together, to feel the world we play in. To meet new characters and to fight well drawn characters. If that doesn't go well with your play style, the game will also be Singleplayer with a main story line and side quests, so don't panic.
