The developer has confirmed matched funding from a game industry insider up of $50k if they successfully reach their initial Kickstarter goal pushing them to $100,000 which will ensure that production can continue beyond the first release with features and content. However they will need the help of the Netstorm and Kickstarter communities to make the initial goal of $50,000.
Disciples Of The Storm is a fast past RTS that sets players against each other in a bitter fight to the death in a kill or be killed fantasy world. Players will gain territory of shattered, floating islands as they seek to capture and slay the enemy tribe’s high priest while advancing their tribe toward their goal of total domination in an attempt to appease their god.
Construct temples along with attack and defense units from workshops, deploy a lattice of bridges linking the floating islands to gain more ground and resources forming the lifeblood of a player’s expanding empire of islands.
Here is the Kickstarter trailer:
