Chaos Reborn Kickstarter

The Kickstarter is now underway for Chaos Reborn, a remake of X-COM originator Julian Gollop's "cult classic ZX Spectrum game ‘Chaos’, first published in 1985 by Games Workshop." The pitch actually fails to mention platforms, though one of the backer rewards promises a "digital downloadable version of the game, DRM free, for either Windows, Mac or Linux," so we know PCs are covered. The goal is to raise $180,000, and they are already over 10% there. Here's word on the plan:

The magic combat system remains true to the original Chaos. It is all about summoning a host of weird and mythical creatures, moving and fighting with them, and using your wizard to attack, defend, buff and de-buff with large array of spells. It is highly tactical and fast paced. But Chaos Reborn expands considerably on this by offering multiplayer modes, a single-player RPG system and co-op play.

Currently, we have an online multi-player prototype working, which you can see in the video. A third of the spells are implemented, but most of the graphics are place-holder and none of the creatures have animations yet. However, the game is fully functional and great fun to play. With your help we can implement all the features in our game design, and deliver the final game to you by spring 2015.
