Project Exile finds publisher for early 2008 release


We thought that Project Exile was abandoned, left to rust in an unused barn with the other RPGs from indie studios that we haven't heard much from in months (e.g. Western Lords), but that wasn't the case! Signature Devices and Graffiti Entertainment announced that they've teamed up with Montreal-based developer Studio Archcraft to publish Project Exile, predicting a release for the 1st quarter of 2008.

If this is your first time hearing about the title, Project Exile is a "Japanese-style RPG" that follows the traditions of classic SNES RPGs with both its graphics and game design. In fact, its similarities to games like Chrono Trigger, the Seiken Densetsu series, and Final Fantasy 6 are so pronounced, there was a bit of controversy over whether or not the developer was using altered sprites ripped from its forefathers.

Though we're weary over what functionality the team might've shoehorned in during the game's mid-development move from the GBA to the DS, if Studio Archcraft manages to fulfill its promise of "eight fully developed playable characters armed with over 100 different abilities, skills, and combos," we'll definitely be at the front of the line when Project Exile hits shops.
