Elysian Shadows is an indie 2D RPG being developed for Windows, OSX, Linux, Droid, iOS, and Sega Dreamcast. We fuse aspects of 16-bit classical RPGs such as Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, and Final Fantasy, with a highly stylized, modern vision by using dynamic lighting, physics and audio engines along with swapping between 2D and 3D perspectives. Our goal is to create a "next-gen" 2D RPG in terms of gameplay, graphics, and audio while still remaining true to the games that inspired us to become developers.

We just crossed our initial funding goal of $150,000. Elysian Shadows will be gracing your consoles around December 2015! We are still working on our Steam Greenlight so we could really use your help to make it happen. If we get the all-clear it would mean the PC backers would get a Steam code to play on all the platforms they support! Steamcommunity.com

To celebrate we hosted a livestream yesterday, inviting fans and backers to join us, ask us questions or simply hang out.

Our stretch goals are back up, at least a condensed version. It will be updated as we hit our goals moving forward!!

Thank you for the support everyone!! We couldn't have done it without any of you :)

Does 'Android Console' include the GameStick? Would be awesome on that platform.

Good luck!

I would totally support this game if Falco wasn't always such a **** in the dev videos. Tyler seems like such a cool guy and the game looks good. Not entirely sure about next gen groundbreaking but decent and it shows how much hard work was put into it. But I find the vids pretty unwatchable I usually just skip to the parts with Tyler he seems like a pretty down to earth dude. But Falco just brings an un-professional air to the whole project he is pretty much a loud mouth dickhead who acts like he is doing all of this innovative stuff that is so much better then everyone else and between his bad language and always talking **** it really makes me wonder sometimes how this project ever got so far.

Is it bad that I kind of like this guy? Not because he's a judgmental prick who would rather crucify me for my antics rather than respect me for the merit of my work as an engineer... But because he had the balls to come out and be this blunt about his opinion. Oh wait, no... He did it anonymously. Nevermind. ;)

I love the fact that you guys are keeping the development so open to the public. It has been fun following you guys the last few years.

Thanks man, we really appreciate it. We've loved being able to share our project with you guys, and you have always inspired us to keep going. Also, the community feedback has always helped us to build a better product. --Falco
