Though it seems like a day doesn't go without me hearing about yet another Kickstarter project, I wasn't aware of this one. Which is odd, because it's by one of the well-known developers:
Wildman by Gas Powered Games.
Here's the Kickstar page:
The game itself seems to be an Action RPG with some RTS elements. It's not doing well at the moment, but again, the fact that I hadn't heard of it at all probably shows it's not done that good a job of getting the word out there. So ARPG fans who might be interested and hasn't heard of it, I'm posting this to let you know.
As to how I finally heard about it, it's sort of funny. I'm subscribed to Matt Chatt on Youtube (he does a show on old school games, with some really interesting interviews with well-known developers of the classics).
Last week he did an interview with Gas Powered Games' CEO Chris Taylor, which ended up a surprisingly long, candid and emotional one. It also has some interesting stuff about game development and working with publishers, so here, I'll link the interview as well: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zJdMRKBbLE
I honestly hope they make it. Myself I'm not that much into ARPGs, I'm afraid, but some of the stuff Chris Taylor and co. made was good (I enjoyed Total Annihilation and Dungeon Siege), and adding some RTS elements sounds interesting, so I'm sort of on the fence right now... maybe leaning towards a small bit of support.
