Typically, as it turns out Dragon of Legends is actually one of the better examples of a Kickstarter project and probably didn’t need to publish a draft at all. With plenty of information, an attractive layout, artwork, gameplay footage, descriptions of game mechanics, highlighting of key features and even playable music tracks there wasn’t much for me to comment on beyond a couple of spelling issues and some general recommendations.

The fact we’re both fairly impressed at this point bodes well for Dragon of Legends and it will be interesting to see how it fares when the Kickstarter goes live on 19th January 2016.
