October 28, 2014 – Sheperdstown, West Virginia, USA – Indie developer Still Games has released a playable tech demo of their action-adventure RPG Animal Gods. Builds are available for both Mac and PC.
Coinciding with the tech demo release, the Kickstarter pledges have just passed the 75% mark with 11 days remaining to achieve its funding target of $26,000.
“I’m extremely thrilled and humbled by the response from backers who have taken us to 78% funded so far,” said Peter Harmon, Game Designer for Animal Gods. “We’re on our way to being funded, but we still have 11 more days to go and we hope that with your support we can not only make it there, but also hit some of the stretch goals for the campaign, including the one for taking Animal Gods to the PlayStation 4!”
Inspired by the likes of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds, Still Games’ Animal Gods tells the story of the rise of an unlikely hero, trying to save the world and free the Animal Gods. In the game, players explore the ancient roots of European history, featuring massive 2D side-scrolling battles in the wonderfully colourful & beautifully ravaged setting of ancient Europe.
Once funded, Animal Gods will be fully developed and released on Wii U, PC, Mac and Linux. A PlayStation 4 version will also be developed if the campaign reaches $45,000.
