Video game stories from other sites on the web. At the time, Playdeck promised to release the game in 2015, but the studio went dark for a while, before the project was put on hold previous year. "We will be following up as soon as possible with more details on the game and our progress", he concluded, which should encourage fans who were frustrated with the long bouts of silence that Playdek was prone to. Playdek took the title to Kickstarter in 2014 to raise money for the game's development, but only met its fundraising goal on the campaign's final day.

Given the financial problems amid the development of "Unsung Story", it was no surprise that Playdek was painted in a bad light by some fans.

Playdek then went on to thank its backers for their support and apologised for being unable to fulfil their promises.

"Effective immediately publisher/developer Little Orbit has taken over all the rights and assets to Unsung Story from Playdek, and is now the project creator". This means that the tactical RPG is returning to its single player roots as Little Orbit undoes all the modifications like PvP multiplayer that Playdek added on while trying to deliver a product they ultimately still failed to deliver. "They believe strongly the game can be an incredible Tactics RPG, and they are excited to carry on and bring Matsuno's story to life", the company added. Announced over three and a half years ago, Unsung Story was a game with a lot of talent behind it, mostly those who worked on Final Fantasy Tactics and Vagrants Story. As a reminder, some of Little Orbit's most recent games include Kung Fu Panda: Showdown of Legendary Legends, Monster High: New Ghoul in School, Barbie and Her Sisters: Puppy Rescue, and Adventure Time: Finn and Jake Investigations. In the past few years they have also turned into a small publishing company to put their own games out.

"Second the good news". Little Orbit understands that paying extra could just further frustrate backers and fans. Instead of picking up where Playdek left off in creating the RPG, the developer has chose to really work hard by starting development of the project ffrom scratch.

Matthew Scott, CEO of Little Orbit, posted an update yesterday, giving background on himself and his company and claiming he's very dedicated to finishing the project. This decision came from looking at the backer comments on the game and deciding that the game should focus on the "original single player game and Matsuno's design that was promoted during the campaign" that had somehow been lost in the Playdek version.

Unsung Story is certainly a big change of pace for Little Orbit and it sounds like it will be an uphill battle to prove itself following in the footsteps of Matsuno.
