Brisbane-based 5 Lives Studios has launched their Kickstarter campaign for a spiritual successor to Syndicate Wars. It's called Satellite Reign and is a real-time, class-based strategy in a full cyberpunk world.

We control a team of four agents with unique abilities that are "collectively battling for control of a fully simulated, living cyberpunk city." The clock has started with 30 days to raise £350k.

As of right now over 1,000 backers have pledged a little over £26k. There are plenty of reward tiers with alpha and beta access offered. Satellite Reign is for PC, Mac and Linux.

"The game world is designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, giving you the tools and freedom to play how you want to play, so you can create strategies and scenarios that not even we had anticipated!" reads the Kickstarter. "Customise your team with the strength to destroy your enemies head-on, or hack into their facilities to manipulate their infrastructure without them ever knowing you were even there."

"Will you take down your enemies with brute-force? Covert espionage and infiltration? Or will you use propaganda to influence the citizens of the city and overthrow the controlling powers?"

Check out the Satellite Reign Kickstarter for more and pledge your cyberpunk monies today.
