Americana Dawn Has A Thing For Historical Accuracy

The Kickstarter campaign craze has been on the loose since Double Fine blew their funding out of the water on their first day. Gamers are making their voices heard by putting their money where they think it should belong. This is excellent news for Indie game makers around the globe, as a good product means funding!

Americana Dawn is a Japanese-styled RPG that is set in the 18th century of America. Specifically, this is taking place in the midst of the French and Indian War and the American Revolution. It features turn-based battles and a serious infatuation with history. Of course, it does have a sort of mystical magicy side to it, but it is certainly sticking to its guns when it comes to getting the factual information right from the sounds of things.

The game will be released as freeware, but this Kickstarter campaign made by Max Lambert is a way to compensate all of the artists, composers, and programmers who put time into the project. They have surpassed their funding by a few hundred, but seeing as the creator of this campaign was low-balling to scrape by, it couldn’t hurt to help them along. Helping to fund with get you anything from your very own NPC to art books.
