Prodigy gameplay video shows off figurine battles

Last month, we showed you Prodigy, a strategy RPG that uses real-world figurines a la What would Skylanders. The project has since gone to Kickstarter, and it's already raised more than its minimum goal.

Using figurines, players can place their characters on the front of the board to gain maximum attack, towards the back for maximum defense, or get a balance of both by being in the middle. Once characters are placed, actions can be taken by using various cards, like Attack, Defend, and more. Dropping a card on the board will have the game trigger an animation that plays on the TV screen. To get a better idea of exactly how the gameplay works, developer Hanakai Studio has released a new video.

Shacknews' crowdfunding policy requires games to have a prototype for front-page coverage.
