As expected, developer Gas Powered Games has launched a Kickstater campaign to help fund its next major game project. Its called Wildman, and its being descreibed as a mix of RTS and RPG from the creators behind Dungeon Siege, Demigod and more.
The Kickstarter campaign page states that the player controls one hero, the "Wildman" in this fantasy themed game. The Wildman fights alongside a friendly army against an enemy force. The page states:
You support your troops with your own combat abilities and skills. You shape-shift into new forms that grant you new abilities. You upgrade your armies with new technology. You construct defenses. Your opponent switches tactics; you reconfigure your army to counter.
In addition to the real time strategy battles, Wildman allows the player to control your hero in RPG-like quests, stating, "You can explore fantastical environments. You can discover ancient dungeons full of mystery and treasure. You can earn new skills. You can discover and equip new weapons and armor. You can collect materials. You can craft new items. You can fight relentless onslaughts of men and monsters."
Gas Powered Games currently is looking for an ambitious $1.1 million from the public to fund Wildman and the team still has over 39 days to go.
