“Needless to say, we are extremely excited to have been Greenlit on Steam at the same time that we achieved our Kickstarter success, all in just two weeks after hitting the Top 20 with great support from the Steam community”, said Grimm Bros CEO, Ash Monif. “We developed the concept and art style for Dragon Fin Soup over a year ago and cannot express how happy we are that gamers and RPG fans agree with us. We are really looking forward to bringing this unique experience to market later this year, thanks to all of you who believe in Dragon Fin Soup as much as we do”!

Combining turn-based dungeon crawl exploration with the classic console RPG style of storytelling, Dragon Fin Soup draws inspiration from beloved childhood fairytales, with a twist. The game starts out with Red Robin, the reimagined version of the classic Red Riding Hood character who is a cheerful, yet raging alcoholic that makes a living as a sword-for-hire and bounty hunter in a remote country village. A year has passed since Robin lost her memory, but the bloody past slowly catches up with her as she discovers a world of murder, conspiracies and magic.

Kickstarter rewards for backers include limited edition music boxes, art books, plushies, t-shirts, art prints, engraved crystals and hand-drawn illustrations. The Kickstarter stretch goals give gamers the opportunity to determine the scope and scale of Dragon Fin Soup, directly influencing the shape of the game and participating during its development.
