Back in August we announced how Playdek were handing over development of Unsung Story to Little Orbit. Unsung Story is the much-maligned Kickstarter game that's supposed to be a spiritual successor to Final Fantasy Tactics, made with the help of FFT creator Yasumi Matsuno, but ended up being a disaster seemingly due to Playdek's mismanagement of the project.
Now that Little Orbit have taken over the project from scratch, they've been busy trying to undo all the damage that Playdek did to the project. In their latest Kickstarter updates they've detailed a few previously unrevealed or unnoticed ways that Playdek mismanaged the Kickstarter campaign and Unsung Story.
In their latest update for Kickstarter backers, Little Orbit have detailed some changes they're making to the project as a whole - all based on undoing the strange decisions Playdek made while doing the Kickstarter campaign. These include:
The good news is that Little Orbit are correcting all these problems and have announced versions of the game for Xbox One, PS4, and Nintendo Switch, with backers able to choose their digital copy from one of the first two if they want that (Nintendo charges extra). While we haven't seen any game yet Little Orbit do at least seem to have the project back in control, even if they're doing it almost certainly entirely from their own funding - which makes offering refunds for those people affected by the mismanagement by Playdek even more magnanimous.
That we haven't seen any game yet shouldn't be a surprise, since Little Orbit threw out everything Playdek did when they took over the project. If you're planning on running a Kickstarter folks, try to manage costs before you make any promises, right?
