Soul Saga development going well despite health complications, dev says

Soul Saga creator Mike Gale has recently had a few health problems, but the game is still "moving along great," according to a recent post on Kickstarter.

Soul Saga is a Japanese role-playing game-inspired title that borrows elements from the likes of Final Fantasy, Breath of Fire and Suikoden. It's slated for launch this year.

"My personal health took a dip a few months ago when I became bed ridden from a ruptured disc in my spine," Gale wrote. "I have barely been able to walk, and unable to sit for about three months now. The doctor says I will probably need surgery.

"But don't worry, I won't do something like that until Soul Saga is done. I want to make sure I get a good game to you as soon as possible. I've acquired a laptop so I can work from bed since I can't sit at my normal workstation. I'm still personally clocking in ~100 hours a week on Soul Saga, so there shouldn't be any delays from my end of the project."

Soul Saga was funded via Kickstarter last year; it ended with more than triple its asking price of $60,000. The game is expected to launch for PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita, Wii U and Mac, Linux and Windows PC via Steam. It was Greenlit last August.
