Legendary game designer announces Wildman and unveils Kickstarter campaign.
Acclaimed game developer Chris Taylor and his award winning Gas Powered Games (GPG) team is ready to take you on a “walk on the wild side” with a brand new and unique gaming experience. Gas Powered Games today announced the development of Wildman, a combination of an action role-playing game (RPG) and real-time strategy (RTS) game that could only come from the creative (and wild) mind of one of the industry’s most entertaining figures.
Wildman will be funded with a Kickstarter campaign. The official Kickstarter page has a video interview with Taylor and members of the GPG team and includes information about the game including videos and some early artwork from the dev team. GPG has a goal of raising $1.1 million in pledges.
“Kickstarter and crowdfunding allows us to fundamentally change the way we develop games. I’m thrilled that we are finally entering a new era of gaming, an era that allows collaboration and unprecedented levels of transparency with our customers,” says Taylor, creative director at GPG. “It allows us to work together as a team, create games more efficiently and direct our energy at the things that the players care about most.”
The GPG team has a long history of making successful RPG and RTS games such as Dungeon Siege, Supreme Commander and Demigod. And the team will be pulling some of the best features from each of them to create the unique Wildman experience that is a combination of both popular genres.
