Most game developments projects soliciting funding on Kickstarter make contributors into producers, fronting money to help creators achieve their vision. The guys at Adanac Entertainment are configuring the fund-raising efforts for their in-development RPG Runes of Ashmore a little differently.
Runes of Ashmore will feature turn-based, tactical combat and the player's actions will affect the entire gameworld. When the game goes live next year -- release is planned for PC and Xbox Live Arcade -- users will be able to submit maps, characters and even whole towns. But contributors to the Kickstarter campaign will get to craft characters that all players will see.
Notable Reward: $US50 or more- You'll get to work with Adanac developers on a major NPC's design.
Chances: Fairly good. The amount they need to cross the finish line isn't a lot and Runes of Ashmore should appeal to fans of retro-styled gaming and classic RPG design.
Finishes: January 11th
