Indie studio Grimm Bros brewing up a colourful tactical roguelike RPG
Hello, we are Grimm Bros, nice meeting you all! We are Ash Monif and Randis Albion, long-time friends and industry veterans. Over the last 12 months, we’ve been working with a small band of indie developers and are today proud to share with you our debut title – Dragon Fin Soup!
Dragon Fin Soup is a RPG hybrid, what that means is that its half Machine, half Kitchen or in other terms, it’s part roguelike (Mystery Dungeon) and part classic console RPG with a persistent world and story. It plays like a mix of Chocobo Dungeon and Secret of Mana and comes with two main gameplay modes. Story Mode focuses on storytelling, character progression, and plays more like a classic RPG and Survival Mode plays more like a roguelike and features ‘permadeath’.
Dragon Fin Soup is a turn-based game – not so much like Final Fantasy Tactics or X-Com, but more Shiren the Wanderer where the foes take their turn simultaneously with the player, allowing for more dynamic and fast paced gameplay.
The world of Dragon Fin Soup has been inspired by fairy tales and fantasy and is set on Asura, a giant Space Turtle. We are not trying to retell the stories, but plan to twist these iconic tales into a complete re-imagination. One of the main player characters is Red Robin. Although inspired by Red Riding Hood, she is quite different as the character you will remember from your childhood. She is a cheerful alcoholic making her living as a bounty hunter and sword for hire.
A year ago Robin lost her memory in a tragic accident and as she rediscovers herself and the world, she slowly learns more about her bloody past, the mysteries of Asura, and a twisted tale of betrayal and murder.
In Dragon Fin Soup we have day and night cycles, crafting, gathering, fishing, story missions, randomly generated quests and missions, different locations from spider forests, ice caves, abandoned mines and more. We also include 20 equipment slots for your weapons and gear, all kinds of abilities and magic and many other fun things.
Grimm Bros is a micro-studio of five veteran developers. Our small team has been working on Dragon Fin Soup for a year now with the help and support of our amazing friends and family. We have three great programmers, a freelance composer and one guy who is doing ALL the graphics, sound effects and design!
Bearing many awesome goodies, Dragon Fin Soup is now on Kickstarter to help us raise more funds for polish and adding a lot of fun features. Please check it out and give us your feedback so we can make the best game possible!
