Indie developer New Horizon Games is Kickstartering its new MetroidVania title Empire Eden. The studio is looking to raise $19,000.
According to owner Ryan DeGange, “We designed this game as a vessel to deliver a powerful story, the gameplay came second. The level of detail we wanted was so important. We did not want to follow the fad of low resolution pixel art with a cliché story. We wanted to make sure that the theme/setting was new and as original as possible. As the first generation of developers raised on electronic gaming, it's essential that we inspire, rather than copy.”
The game features both run-and-gun and roleplaying features, as players level up their weapon skills and utilize animal powers.
According to the plot, "Your goal is to reach the looming tower in the East; this is the headquarters of the Empire. As you progress, you uncover the dark secrets of the Empire, and why they have been capturing natives from neighboring tribes across the lands."
The game also features a branching storyline. "The story, maps, and ending will change depending on which decisions you make during each play through," states the Kickstarter page.
