Nekro Kickstarter

A new Kickstarter seeks crowd-funding for Nekro, a "randomly generated action game about summoning evil forces of darkness to do your bidding," for Windows, OS X, and Linux, saying this will be "rooted deep in PC gaming's history, but with all the flourishes you've come to expect from a modern experience." This is being developed by DarkForge, formed by vets of Blizzard, Sony, Microsoft and more, who say: "Combining full HD graphics, a unique premise, solid gameplay, and tight controls Nekro can be one hell of a game - but not without you..."

To be fair, what they showed and said so far does not fill me with confidence that they can do a freelancer 2.0 and that means they failed at introducing their project properly.

In the end, the first impression is what counts and that video pretty much failed horribly in that regard.

If I outsource some concept art cheaply, write up a clever pitch and combine this with some sort of well assembled basic video, I could get loads of cash to create my own game?? Awesome.

Though looking at the Starlight Inception kickstarter's slow start, perhaps it's not that easy.

However, the current murky in-game visuals they are showing remind me of WoW which isn't a good thing

Yeah, frankly, that's an art style that I just dislike. There have been games where I've put up with it, but it's never a selling point. I'd rather something more "realistic".

Now we know who is responsible for all those scat quests in WoW.

Nah, I'm sure that the people responsible for the "shit" in WoW are still at Blizzard.

I think the gameplay sounds interesting and the concept art is very cool.

However, the current murky in-game visuals they are showing remind me of WoW which isn't a good thing. Its a turn off. If the game graphics more closely mirrored the concept art then I'd possibly put money towards it.

Hope they make there 100k goal.

Can't go wrong with pooping pigs...

Anyhow... This is precisely what I don't like about the kickstarter hype... On the one hand, it's great that some people can pre-order the game for $15, and perhaps, it'll cost more at launch...

On the other, this isn't a game that needs our funding... This game is being made... It looks like a game that I will buy, but not until it's available (or just before), because if I'm throwing money at kickstarter projects, I want them to need the money I'm donating...

Edit: Also meant to add that I love the art style : )

Heh, I might have to kick in for this one. The art style is cool. And it has pigs rolling around in mud!
