This is Konrad from Xenocell. I wanted to give you an update about our sandbox action-strategy MMO.
The fundraiser campaign at www.indiegogo.com/xenocell started well, but now we got to a point where the campaign is in real danger of failing. Read on about how you could save the game.
For contact information, please refer to our press kit.
After over four years of working on a new kind of action-strategy game, Hungarian developer Bitgap Games is looking for help to launch their persistent virtual sandbox title with the help of the global crowd-funding platform, IndieGoGo.
“Xenocell is the game we always wanted to play. It’s a vehicular action-strategy title with mild RPG elements.” – says Konrad Kiss, a co-founder of Bitgap and the lead developer on the project. “We are very close to launching the game, but without initial financial help, we are not able to fire up enough servers to get started.”
Undoubtedly, crowd-funding platforms such as the most prominent Kickstarter, and the global leader IndieGoGo have helped many small, independent projects see the day of light. By promising pledges, contributors help interesting ideas get funded and receive valuable perks related to the subject in return.
“We have a terrific game on our hands with a unique, new kind of game play that is very hard to fit into any of the existing genres.” – says Kiss. “Online, persistent, massively multiplayer sandbox action-strategy always earns us a smile!” – he laughs.
Bitgap is hoping to launch Xenocell in the coming months if they manage to get funded by mid-November.
Yes! Progress! But first: I was told that I’ve been really bad at writing updates, and that is true. It is something that I will change right now. I would also like to emphasize that the game’s been in development all the way – with much enthusiasm and dedication! I just didn’t say a word. Sorry about that. Currently I am working on the first promotional & gameplay video that we’ll be using to ask players to help us kickstart the game. There’s also a bit of a tease about strategic player buildings in this post.
