A cyberpunk RPG set within a war-ravaged planet, Kitaru follows a somewhat familiar formula. There's a gorgeous, red-headed protagonist who is, coincidentally, a prodigy in the arts of assassination. Though headstrong and popular, she is also a somewhat sheltered creature. After petitioning for a chance to prove herself, she sneaks off and eventually uncovers a reasonable nefarious plot. According to the description on Kickstarter, the game will be a narrative-driven experience that will feature turn-based active-time battles, covert operations, diplomatic duties and a world that has been in development for over five years.
There's a fairly comprehensive amount of material available on the Kickstarter site. Those interested in taking a look can find it here.
