Evening fellow bombers!
I come yet again with the tidings of another kickstarter that may need your, yes, YOUR aid. As it stands right now, 5 Lives Studios' spiritual successor to the
is hovering at the 316k out of 350k mark on their kickstarter. 5 Lives have been concerned that they haven't yet managed to reach out to all the fans of their old games that may be interested, and as such, after searching meticulously on the Giantbomb forums and finding nothing about it (but strangely enough a page for it on the wiki, huh) I decided to raise awareness about the game. Because seriously, this looks awesome. If you're an old fan of the series, and didn't know about this, I forgive you - but it requires your sacrifice and it does so now.
(For those oldtimers that my words may already have swayed, or for those that can't be arsed reading what I'm writing and want to check it out themselves, here's the link to the kickstarter:
To quote their kickstarter, Satellite Reign is "A real-time, class-based strategy game, set in an open world cyberpunk city", and who the hell doesn't just love that? You'll take charge of 4 agents, each a distinct class. 3 have had their artwork presented to those following the development as of yet. I'll be postin' some pictures here for eyecandy, but unless I crop them and make them smaller the GB page makes them look like crap, so my apologies iof they seem a bit grimy. There's the Soldier, the Hacker and the Support agents.
We're waiting for the Assassin agent reveal. For those curious as to how the game is played, they resently released an in-engine visualisation of how they imagine the game will look like (and damn does it look fine in that Unity engine).
For those that remember the old Syndicate and Syndicate Wars games, this should seriously be a no-brainer. For the rest of you, check it out. These guys seriously seem like they know what the hell they're doing.
Either GB doesn't allow imbeded code, or I am an incompetent twit. You're going to have to go to to the kickstarter to see their actual promotional video (
Now to pray that this looks as tidy as it did during the editing when I post this.
EDIT: It screwed up a little. On the other hand, GOAL REACHED. Grab a tier before they vanish fellas!
