Can I Kick It? YES YOU CAN!!!!!
We are back with another edition of Kicking It with Kickstarter! We love that Kickstarter provides an opportunity for passionate creators to get help in funding their projects. We try to look at any interesting and game related project. Of course, if you see a project and want us to check it out, let us know in the comments or on social media! With that in mind, let’s look at some projects that caught my eye this week –
Shattered: Tale of the Forgotten King
Redlock Studio’s project caught my eye this week for many different reasons. But one thing that stood out was the rich story that you can read on the project’s page. The story is mysterious, yet it looks like a lot of thought was put into building this dark and dreary world. It is a 2D platformer with puzzles and enemies. The platforming leads to 3D dynamic boss fights where you use your learned skills to take down some serious bosses. RPG components like skill sets and crafting will aide you on your journey through the world of Hypnos. This looks like it has the potential to be a really fun and engaging game. I hope that it reaches it’s goal! If you want to see more details or if you want to support it, click HERE. There are 32 days left, so go support it now!
Sigil Stone Publishing is back with another fantastic looking RPG. Ben Dutter is one of the most creative RPG guys that I know, so I have no doubt that this will be a great RPG to play with your friends. Perseverant is a tabletop RPG that can be played in a single session. Your task is to survive the dangerous Wilderness. What’s interesting is the fact that there is a collaborative effort in the beginning that will help set up the narrative for the session. Players decide on narrative elements and must play through them at some point in the game (players don’t know when the elements will come into play). I love how Perseverant can be molded to allow a lot of variety, especially if you want the Wilderness to be in other locations (like outer spaaaaaaaaaaace). Perseverant has almost reached the goal, so help out if you can! Click HERE for more details on Perseverant. There are 15 days left to support Perseverant!
Orion looks like a really ambitious MMORPG shooter. Orion uses the Unreal Engine 4 and looks to include a variety of things to do – space exploration, combat, dueling/PVP, co-op, and racing! Players will have a lot of ways to customize their character with a ton of loot and gear. You can also customize how you play (first person, third person, or top down). It looks like there will be campaign missions as well as co-op survival experiences. Plus, Orion will have content that can be used with the Vive and Oculus Rift! The project has 53 days left. It sounds like an incredible gaming experience, so click HERE if you want to see more or if you want to support Orion!
That is all for this week! We will be back soon with more Kickstarter projects!
