Gas Powered Games Announces Wildman

Chris Taylor and Gas Powered Games announce Wildman, an upcoming cross between an action/RPG and a real-time strategy game they say will offer "a brand new and unique gaming experience." The game is the subject of a Kickstarter that seeks to raise at least $1.1 million to develop the game, and the page includes this video featuring Chris and the team discussing the game and showing off some concept artwork. Here's word on the game:

Imagine a game where you control a single hero unit—the “Wildman”—in the middle of a raging battle between opposing forces in a specially designed War Zone. You engage the enemy and see your opponent switching tactics, forcing you to reconfigure your army to counter. You push the enemy back to their base before facing your opponent’s champion. Over the course of this battle, you upgrade your armies with new technology, execute special abilities, construct defenses, change your army composition, and shape-shift into new forms that grant you new abilities. This is Wildman.

Now imagine that between these War Zone battles you can go on role-playing adventures. You can explore fantastical environments. You can discover ancient dungeons full of mystery and treasure. You can earn new skills. You can discover and equip new weapons and armor. You can collect materials. You can craft new items. You can fight relentless onslaughts of men and monsters. This is also Wildman.

DS3 had the worst controls and interface I've ever seen.

it was made by Obsidian, not Gas Powered Games. So, think DS1 and 2, which were better in the interface/controls department.

As for my interest in the project: low... I hate RTS.

Wow great find. Here's a huge tangent, but that Wildman voice sounds like Sebastian Bach.

I'll just leave this here:

God, DS3 was probably one of the worst games I've ever played and I've played an unhealthy amount of games.

Aha, apparently GPG did not make DS3? It was Obsidian and published by SE. Here's an interview at RPS

They mean a game based on Robot Chicken's Wildman?

After DS3 I'll pass thanks.

I am not interested in this game. I was excited for Kings and Castles, but I guess they are no longer making it. We need companies to make RTS games other than Relic and Blizzard. There are so few.

Not going to bite on this one, I'll wait for a release version, assuming there is one.

Is it me, or is 1.1 a little on the high side?
