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.

      None of these type of games stick. I wonder why? Cost?
      Eye of Judgement did do so well, there was a card based multimedia type zombie one that was kick started also I cant remember the name and I haven't heard a whisper out of them for a while and their campaign was successful.
      Skylanders makes money, but I consider them like Atari. People buy them and then forget. My kids have them and the Disney one, ask me if they play them or even know anything about how to play the game right.
