Yet another Kickstarter game campaign has ended successfully. Nekro, a game made by new game studio Darkforge, has raised $158,733, which is well over the company's planned goal of $100,000.
Darkforge had already announced that if it reached the $140,000 level of funding, it would add a peer-to-peer/LAN co-op mode into the game. At $150,000 the team said it would also add an "all-pig" level to the game. Obviously, Nekro will now have a co-op game experience with pigs; at least we hope so.
The Darkforge team has members that have worked on games for Blizzard, Sony, Microsoft and others. The isometric action game will have the player taking on the role of a bad guy in this world where your only concern is chaos and destruction. Naturally, the inhabitants of this world would like to stop you. The creators are promising a randomly generated world every time you play, a dark humor theme, and more.
The game is slated to be released on the PC, Mac and Linux in June 2013. Nekro will also be DRM-free when it is made available to gamers. It joins many other successfully funded Kickstarter game projects this year, including Double Fine's untitled adventure game, Wasteland 2, Shadowrun Returns and a remake of the first Leisure Suit Larry game.
