Coda is thematically rich. Every turn of the story, every introspective thought, and every dialogue exchange relates back to the core of what’s really happening. Yes, there are big events, chaotic battles cascading with vibrant colors. There are cities with walls and giants! There are rotting Ylf heads that speak. There is raw fuel that creates magic called Akker, but everything is, ultimately, in its simplest form, nothing but background noise to the character flaw of our hero, Hum.
Here at Fanbase Press, we strive to provide an outlet for up-and-coming creators to promote and showcase their incredible works. With thousands of creators utilizing crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and Indiegogo to make those works a reality, we will highlight these talented creators and their noteworthy campaigns through #CrowfundingFridays! We hope that you will join us in giving these projects a moment of your time (and possibly your support)!
