Ah, time to return to the Kickstart realm. BlackFoot Studios is a small “high speed, low drag” independent studio whose goal is to fill a void in the style of games many would call ‘Classic’ tactical squad based gaming; As well as develop gaming products that cater to the “thinking gamers” of the tactical first person shooter genre. The team will start pretty soon a Kickstarter campaign for their upcoming tactical FPS title, Ground Branch, and they have released a teaser trailer for it. Keep in mind that the following footage is from the game’s pre-alpha stage so yeah, it will look better than that.
On the other hand, Aterdux Entertainment has started a new Kickstarter campaign for their RPG/strategy hybrid – with tactical turn based battles and a simple economic model – title called Legends of Eisenwald. Legends of Eisenwald promises to be a combination of a role playing game and a strategy in right proportion that can be called a Knight-Errant Simulator, with a lot of weapons and battle spells and many units with upgrade trees.
Legends of Eisenwald’s Kickstarter goal is $50K USD and is currently at around $30K with 20 days to go. With additional funding the company will be able to add more to the campaign scenarios, add more units, create beautiful special effects for spells in battles, localize the game with more languages, make the game richer and more diverse. In addition, the company will port Legends of Eisenwald to Mac if they reach the $100K mark.
