Dragon Fin Soup is described as a SNES-style turn-based role-playing game, with Roguelike elements, for PC and PlayStation (PS4, PS3, Vita) hardware. And it's nearly reached its $24K goal on Kickstarter.

It's a colourful, eye-catching and visually charming game with a story mode (like a normal RPG) and survival mode (permadeath).

Turns are taken simultaneously with enemies, making things a bit more hectic, and there's fishing, crafting, gathering, story missions, randomly generated quests, loads of locations, 20 equipment slots and a lot of statistics!

It's all heavily inspired by fairy tales, particularly Robin Hood, hence the Red Robin main charater - a "cheerful alcoholic making her living as a bounty hunter".

Even the developer, Grimm Bros., has a touch of fairy tale about it, and is formed of five experienced devs.
