Project Phoenix, an indie JRPG with a seasoned staff, already hit its Kickstarter goal—no, make that nearly doubled its goal. Congrats!
I guess I'm not surprised that it was funded as they did have some names behind it, but to be honest, the video pitch was just awful.
I think using "JRPG" as a term in the pitch, is always going to bring a long some level of support on its own. So they made some smart moves regardless of the video.
