The excellent people at Gas Powered Games are looking for $1.1-million in funding on Kickstarter for the upcoming game Wildman. Set in prehistoric times, Wildman blends action-RPG and real-time strategy, a combination that Gas Powered Games has shown a penchant for time and time again. Here’s some of what you can expect from the game:
Going to War: Build your army and fight against opposing champions armies for great rewards in hand-crafted War Zones.
Exploring the World: Go on RPG Adventures in amazing and epic environments; discover secret dungeons; fight battles against rampaging hordes of monsters; find and equip new weapons and armor.
Evolving or Dying: Steal technology from your defeated opponents and use it against them in future battles.
Smashing and Destroying: Advanced physics and destructible environments deliver highly visceral (and bloody) combat.
Soule Music: Wildman will feature a score from the legendary Jeremy Soule, composer for Total Annihilation, Dungeon Siege, Supreme Commander, Skyrim, Morrowind, Oblivion, Icewind Dale, Neverwinter Nights, Dawn of War, and pretty much every other game with an epic score.
I’m super-psyched for this game. The setting is unique and I dig Gas Powered’s gameplay style. I’m especially interested to see more wild women in Wildman. There’s just something sexy about women covered with small strips of exotic animal skin (see Shanna the She Devil and Jungle Girl).
Gas Powered Games is a fantastic studio and its founder, Chris Taylor, is one of the coolest (in that nerd-chic way) people I’ve met in gaming. Dude once gave me a present that came from the future (I’ll make a video about it. Promise.)! I’m rooting for the company to obliterate its Kickstarter goal and hope that some of you will consider backing this project. For more information on the game, head on over to the official Wildman site.
Naturally, I’d love to hear your thoughts on the game and Gas Powered’s Kickstarter gambit. Does this look something you’d enjoy playing? Any of you considering backing the game? Do you think the company will be able to reach its goal?
