Yup, it’s another Kickstarter notice bringing your attention to projects that AREN’T “yet another Videogame Kickstarter preying upon the nostalgia of old JRPGs fans!”
This time, we have a translation/localization project of Ryuutama, a Japanese tabletop RPG.
Here’s part of the description from the Kickstarter’s page…
“Ryuutama is a tabletop pen-and-paper role-playing game, developed in Japan by designer Atsuhiro Okada. It is set in a world where the “NPCs” of the village–the bakers, minstrels, farmers, shopkeepers and healers–set off on a wonderful adventure exploring a fantasy world together. Some people colloquially call it “Hayao Miyazaki’s Oregon Trail“, because of its heartwarming (in Japanese “honobono”) feel of family anime, and its focus on traveling and wonder over combat and treasure.
The game has been out in Japan for years, and is widely loved by the people who play it. Even today long campaigns and short stories are being played in homes and cafes around the country.”
