Indivisible is a 2D RPG that will be made (if the crowdfunding campaign is successful) by Lab Zero, who also worked on Skullgirls. I’m not familiar with the latter game, outside from a bit of controversy regarding the design of the characters. But I tried the prototype of Indivisible and found it to be of a very high quality. The art design is great and the gameplay challenging and (for an RPG) very skill-based. Despite how good the prototype is, it doesn’t seem like they’ll make their goal at this point, which would apparently result in Lab Zero closing down. They’re asking for $1.5 million, which (if reached) will be complemented by another $2 million from 505 games. However, 505 games will only provide that funding if Lab Zero gathers $1.5 million first.
It’s interesting to see that the $1.5 million is perceived by many as them asking too much. But the reality is that games like Shenmue 3 and Bloodstained had already secured funding before starting their Kickstarter, and in the case of Shenmue 3 it’s unknown how much money they’ve actually obtained. This article on Eurogamer offers an interesting view on the actual development costs for a game.

Has anyone else tried the prototype?
