Enter the Kickstarter Dragon
Australian developers 3 Sprockets have created a Kickstarter to raise funds for their Fight the Dragon. This 3D Mini Action RPG (MARPG) is a Hack and Slash game, where you must battle, explore and loot through short form adventures. The game has been created for short bursts of play with the focus on fun and exciting gameplay. Each mission will last around 10-15 minutes of non-linear play, so that players can jumping when they got a spare hour, or play multiple adventures over longer periods.
The hero in this game is very agile and is quite capable of either avoiding situations, or taking out enemies with some well executed attacks. The player starts out as a young, naïve adventurer who after some battles and plenty of looting, grows up to be a dragon warrior whose parents would be so proud off. The looting system is quite full of depth, and will allow the gamer to fine-tune their character, to make him into a badass adventurer.
Some of the key game features are:
• Action packed Hack-and-Slash Adventuring
• Epic loot to find and dangerous enemies to battle
• Local Drop-In Split-Screen Co-Op
• Up to 4 player online Co-Op (cross platform)
• Endless range of adventures to play
• Intense Dragon Fights
• Fully intuitive gamepad support as well as Mouse & Keyboard
• Full Steam Big Picture/Steam Machine support
Also included will be a Construction Kit, so that the players will be able to create, share and play with other gamers around the world, on all platforms. The Kickstarter projects at the time of writing still had 29 days remaining, and have managed to raise $4,978 Australian Dollars of the $50,000 that it requires. So if this style of game is looking attractive to you, then help the guys out and maybe this game will hit the goal and get a release.
