Kingshunt is an up and coming game currently in development at Vaki Studios. We had the opportunity to play through a vertical slice of Kingshunt with the developers to get a look at the game that is aiming for a niche not occupied by any other at the present time. How well the game progresses through development, through testing, and into release remains to be seen, but at first glance, Kingshunt seems to be onto something truly different.

    Doesn't seem like on paper something I would play but would be very interested in seeing played. It sounds very unique.

    I tend to agree, I like the premise however, lol it combines
    two of my least favorite game types, MOBA and Tower defense, so hard pass for me, but I would really be interested in seeing the finished product. Maybe this game could change my mind.

    If you want a new idea, go read an old book.

    This reminds me of the game Paragon.

    I'll take "I Saw This Somewhere" for 1000 Alex

    [Unreal Engine + Unnecessary Motion Blur + Obnoxious Bunny Hopping]

    What is Ashes of Creation: Battle Royale

    +1000
    Gdemami
    Raging Demons for all flowchart "Kens". This is a metaphor.

    I can categorically say that it's not BR at all, though they did say a game mode like BR may be added later.

    Color me intrigued. I don't know how something so ambitious and atypical will pan out, but I'm willing to give it a chance.

    SMITE? Kinda looks like it. I do prefer this color scheme more.

    So they took Guild Wars 2s PvP objective matches and turned it into a game. Looks like fun. Not my fav type of game but still looks like fun..

    until : "G.D. twinkie-hole why did you put the turret there asdfasdasdasdfd~~!!!"

    Visually, there's an odd similarity between this game and both Spellbreak and Ashes of Creation.

    Somebody in the gaming industry is trying something different, so best of luck to them!

    So, we're calling combining a couple existing things thrown together "something different" now?

    Kinda just looks like Paragon but with a fantasy twist rather than a Sci-Fi one, looks very interesting and will definitely appeal to all those missing Paragon.

    Hard pass...
  • 3dom3dom Member RarePosts: 579
    Looks good. But

    > Healer, Tank, Ranged DPS, and Melee DPS

    good luck balancing that for PvP.

    Thank you for your time!

    Actually reminds me of Gigantic with the moba RTS with a slight tower defence but we'll that game didn't do well
  • bcbullybcbully Member RarePosts: 9,462
    Man it’s a good time to be a pvpr. So many new ways to scratch that itch.

    I can categorically say that I didn't say it was a BR. It looks similar to Ashes of Creation: Battle Royale because of:

    I dont think the bunny hopping is indicative, they just look unskilled. Looks like fantasy paragon to me.

    Yes, that's how bad it has got. :)

    Looks like good quality, but... just really not interesting idea at all.
  • alkarionlogalkarionlog Member RarePosts: 2,236
    kinda remember me some older games who closed down who had something like this, like dinasty warriors online
    FOR HONOR, FOR FREEDOM.... and for some money.
  • AeanderAeander Member LegendaryPosts: 3,765
    I don't get the comparisons to Paragon. Namely because Paragon didn't have an identity of its own. It was just a science fantasy variant of Smite with less depth.

    Epic gave away all the assets to Paragon for free in UE4. That's why this looks like Paragon.
