After raising $660,000 via a KickStarter campaign in January 2014, Unsung Story, a tactical RPG, developers have announced that the project has hit the doldrums. While technically not cancelled, the project is on hold pending hiring external developers to assist with getting the game out.
Unsung Story was to have been released for PlayStation 4, Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita in summer 2015 putting any future release either far into the future or not at all.
After we posted our latest development progress, we unfortunately lost a few key staff members that were part of Unsung Story development, and that has had an impact on any progress since then, as well as our product focus. We now have one internal team capable of working on a single project, and for the financial strength of the company we need to focus on a few products in the near term that have the ability to get to a retail release before Unsung Story is able to. While this is a difficult choice to make, it is one we need to do for the ongoing financial health of the company. For Unsung Story, we will explore options for outside development help, and will look to see if we are able to bring on an outside team that can assist us in furthering development.
