Well... That escalated quickly. Umbra, the isometric "Skyrim meets Diablo", has reached its goal of $US260,000 with 12 days left to go on Kickstarter.
The still-underway Kickstarter has stretch goals to add things like a multiplayer Hero Defence mode (think Horde mode), and a playable female character with separate campaign and story.
We've recently shown the game on a stream. With all that fire, frost, & lightning, that piddly little sword kind of looks ineffectual.
CryEngine branding seems to be everywhere on its Kickstarter page, to the point of the developers each being listed as veterans of "a CryEngine Licensed company". Oh, well. If they're getting more assistance because of it, good for them.
And man, these Kickstarter pages just seem to get longer and longer. The game has already been Greenlit and frankly looks amazing for the size of the team making it.
