The first game revealed was codenamed "DragonFlies" and combines dragon, samurai, and zombies in one PVE experience.

One problem with publishers, generally? You pitch something and the response is often "too similar to something we have or out there so no" or "this is too unique so we can't do a proper financial model for it."

I respect them but as a creative it's frustrating.
