Blood! Guts! Angry brothers! Screaming parents who just don’t understand! While there’s some tangible Kickstarter fatigue in video games right now, a good pitch is a good pitch, and Strafe‘s making an awfully strong argument for why it should have your attention.
You should just watch the full Kickstarter video, honestly. It’s great.
Strafe describes itself as the “fastest, bloodiest, deadliest, most adjective-abusing, action-packed first-person shooter of 1996”, and has the Geocities-era official website to back up its claims.
I mean, look at this!
The only thing the website’s missing is a link to a webring and construction site GIFs.
We’ve written about Strafe before, back when it was little more than a violent tech demo.
Strafe is directly pulling from DOOM, Quake, and other fast-as-hell shooters from a bygone era. There might be a story buried somewhere in Strafe, but something tells me it doesn’t matter. You’re here to blow stuff up as much as possible and as fast as possible. Sounds good to me!
The game’s looking to raise $US185,096 in the next 29 days, and should release in “early” 2016.
