Kickstarter is a hell of a place to look for upcoming indie titles, and this week is no different. The most recent title in the spotlight is Legends of Eisenwald, an action RPG/turn-based real time strategy game from the indie development studio, Aterdux Entertainment. The game’s dev studio is offering up some pretty clever investment incentives, including the opportunity to become a lead producer on the title with an investment of over $10,000.
If you don’t have that kind of change laying around (and let’s be honest, most of us don’t), then you may be much more interested in knowing that other, less sizable contributions will give you the ability to sculpt your own quest for the game, with credit being offered where it is due. The usual accoutrement of offerings is also present, including a DRM-free copy of the game when it launches for a mere $15.
As is the case with most Kickstarter projects, developers need to build a pretty powerful pitch to garner the required amount of interest and funding for a significant impact on development. Aterdux does so with style, providing a humorous and engaging video that takes the viewer through the team’s lengthy development cycle, while clearly demonstrating their passion and love of the medieval era and genre. Normally, this type of game would be swept under the rug alongside the other, similarly themed titles, but Legends of Eisenweld brings enough production value, originality, and what looks to be entertainment to the table that it’s hard not to recommend checking it out.
