Broken and defeated, Eden Industries' Citizens of Earth will rise from the ashes of a failed kickstarter and be picked-up by major gaming publisher, Atlus. Last October, Eden failed to meet their kickstarter goal of $100k for the game but who would have thought everything wouldn't come to an end when the bar was not met?

Citizens of Earth is a comedic turn-based RPG where players will take on the role of Vice President of the World (imagine?) who wakes up to find the world has gone coo-coo. From there, you must recruit 40 people to fend of the evi- ahem, craziness, and presumably, save the world. Good guy Vice President.

Citizens of Earth launches on September 2014. For now, enjoy this teaser trailer.
