Dragon Fin Soup Coming to PS4, PS3, & PS Vita


Ash Monif's Avatar Posted by on Mar 19, 2014 // Co-founder, Grimm Bros

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 twelve months, we’ve been working with a small band of indie developers and today we’re proud to share with you our debut title – Dragon Fin Soup!

Dragon Fin Soup on PS4, PS3 and PS Vita

Dragon Fin Soup is part roguelike and part classic console RPG, with a persistent world and story. It plays like a mix of Chocobo’s Dungeon and Secret of Mana, and it comes with two main gameplay modes. Story Mode focuses on storytelling, character progression, and plays more like a classic RPG, while Survival Mode plays more like a Roguelike and features permanent death.

Dragon Fin Soup is a turn-based game — not quite like Final Fantasy Tactics or XCOM, but more like Shiren or Chocobo Dungeon where foes take their turn simultaneously with the player, allowing for more dynamic and fast-paced gameplay.

The world of Dragon Fin Soup is inspired by fantasy and fairy tales and is set on Asura, a giant space turtle. We are not trying to retell the stories, but we plan to twist and re-imagine these iconic tales. One of the main characters is Red Robin. Though she’s inspired by Red Riding Hood, she is quite different than the character you might remember from your childhood. She’s cheerful, but she’s also a raging alcoholic who makes her living as a bounty hunter and sword for hire.

A year ago, Robin lost her memory in a tragic accident. 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, wide-ranging locations and more. We also include 20 equipment slots for your weapons and gear, all kinds of abilities, 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, sfx, 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! Also, keep an eye on our official site and Facebook page for more updates!

It looks quite amazing. I’ve been waiting for a game like this for a long time, and I also enjoyed Chocobo’s Dungeon 2 a lot, so I will definitively get this day one, as well as donate in the upcoming days. Keep up the good work, I’m expecting great things from it~

Thank you for really putting forth the effort for the gamers.
Will there be a mode for just the story (easy)?
Will there be a mode for the hardcore (you die you lose it all)?
Are you toying with any features of the systems (PS Vita touch screen or PS Move…)?
Will there be many art pieces to collect in the game?
Are there plans for download content?
How much voice acting will be in the game?

    Hello! Thanks for checking our our project!
    There will be a classic story mode where you can just focus on progression, story and exploring the world, there will be a hardcore option for story mode as well with permanent death and there will be a survival mode as well that does not contain story but focuses on survival like many of the classic Roguelikes.
    We Want to add touch support for sure :) Fun controls are important
    The answers to your other questions will partially depend on the kickstarter campaign as we are trying to raise additional funding for more fun features and polish :)

Digital only is a real travesty here. Looking forward to the PC ver. but game looks so good I’m tempted to throw money at you just to play on portable w/ touch controls. Good job guys.

    We would love to make a boxed retail copy but that would involve a lot of extra budget and contracts we do not have in place…

Day one buy for me, looks great, hope you guys reach morgiana expansion and beyond in KS capaign, i watched beggining of gameplay and found myself wishing to be able to revolve around on the spot without using up a “turn”, if this was a suggestion already brought up or a feature i missed in video my apologies. XP keep up the awesome work!
