Americana Dawn is a Classic JRPG inspired by American folklore and history that's crowdfunding on Kickstarter.The RPG genre is full of tons of great games and concepts, but weirdly, not many choose to place themselves in a historical landscape. Americana Dawn is a historical RPG based around the history of America from the 18th century. If the name sounds a bit familiar to you, then perhaps you remember the original 2012 campaign. What’s different between the two is that the first campaign was for a freeware version of the game which was made via many public assets. This new campaign features a full staff devoted to making a polished, purchasable product. Please note that if you did pledge way back when then you’re still on track to receive a copy of the upgraded Americana Dawn.

He washed up on the shores of North America one day and just began living there. After years and years, he is discovered by and recruited into a local militia. From there the spirit lives among people and must participate in tremendous events such as the American Revolution. Players will engage in two types of battles. The first of these are “microbattles.” These turn-based three party battles look like your typical JRPG. However, “macrobattles” are larger in scope and are meant to illustrate wars.

Americana Dawn’s current Kickstarter is asking for $70,000 in funding. If that goal is reached then the game’s development will finally be sped along toward a PC release. Speaking of which, even those who can’t fund this campaign can give it a boost by upvoting the Steam Greenlight page.

Glad to see the BL visual novel Sentimental Trickster was funded. How about those #Kickstarter stretch goals? https://t.co/AEU8LaeD6M - 5 years ago
