I’m at it again folks. Bringing you news of a video game that doesn’t inherently stick with the site’s motif of MMOG/MOBA shenanigans. The business types would say that I’m reaching past our “core competency,” which could very well weaken the overall position of the website. I say nuts to that advice, I’m going to give you what you come here for, information on released and upcoming games.
To that end…Burst Online Entertainment recently began a Kickstarter campaign to fund the genre-blending title, Stone Wardens. A tower defense title at heart, the cel-shaded game makes heavy use of RPG elements as players work alone or in groups to defend their Warden’s home from the Invaders. By defending the lands, players will upgrade their avatar, a Warden, with a variety of powers, pet familiars and gear.
The class-based Wardens heavily modify gameplay for unique experiences. Players can select from damage to support classes in a variety of motifs from Mages to Ninjas. Don’t let the power go to your head though. The invading forces have abilities of their own.
Burst Online Entertainment is a ten-person independent game developer formed from veterans of NCSoft, Turbine, Bungie, Nintendo and more. The team has worked on Guild Wars, Tabula Rasa, Left4Dead, the Halo franchise, Asheron’s Call and many more.
Check out the Kickstarter page for full details, additional media, on-going updates and the all important current funding. The team has under $6,000 of the $225,000 goal as of press time. Funding ends Wednesday, July 31.
