Windforge – CONTRA meets MINECRAFT – Has 40 Hours To Meet Its Initial Kickstarter Goal


Snowed In Studios has informed us about the last hours of its Kickstarter campaign for Windforge; a game that is best described as a mix between CONTRA and MINECRAFT. Windforge is a 2D building block RPG that seamlessly combines gameplay like Contra with the freedom and building of Minecraft, in which players will be able to build airships and explore hostile skies in an ever changing Steampunk world.

Windforge’s Kickstarter campaign has 40 hours left to it and has raised – so far –  $34K. Windforge’s initial goal is $50K and hopefully the team will be able to hit that goal.

Here are the key features of Windforge:

-Contra style action mixed with the freedom and flexible play of Minecraft
-Large completely destructible procedural world with multiple environment types
-Build and fly fully-functional airships
-Over 500 craftable items
-Easy-to-control, skill-based combat with 360-degree aiming
-Epic story line and quests that drive gameplay without constricting freedom
-The first game to include minable sky whales, and meat blocks

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
