Kickstarters are the way many indie game developers try and make their indie titles, as it allows them to not only get the funding the require, but through that, know that gamers are going to be playing it when it arrives. Now, another game is about to add itself to the ranks of successful Kickstarters: Salvage & Rescue Operations: STARDROP.
At the time of this publishing, the game has around 22 hours left, but, it has reached just about $1000 over its goal, thus making it essentially funded. What this means, is that if you wish to pledge to it before it ends, your rewards are basically guaranteed.
Now, what is StarDrop about? Well, in the game, you’ll to experience what it’s like to be a “Salvage and Rescue Operative”. Through your job, you’ll be tasked with finding and exploring old derelict spaceships in what is basically the main storyline. However, just like good RPG’s do, you’ll be able to go to a range of other various locations across the universe through a number of side quest.
Character wise, you’ll play as Aryn and John, two operatives who are sent out to explore a ship that doesn’t register on any database, as they go about their mission though, they realize there’s a lot more to this ship than meets the eye. Because of this, Aryn sets out to try and find what the ship is, and who it belonged to, and the answers will surprise her.
The game itself spans across three space ships, and likely will be roughly 6 to 8 hours to complete. However, this will not count side quests. You will meet a small cast of varying yet interesting characters and a tight narrative building up to a fun, yet emotional, conclusion.
The game is part puzzle, part exploration, part RPG style narrative, and much more. So, if you’re in the market for a new game, and want a sure thing, you might want to check out StarDrop.
