Kickstarter continues to be the place where developers can go to make their video game dreams come true. For the top-down arena brawler RUiN, that dream was made with three days left in their Kickstarter campaign.
As stated, RUiN is a top-down arena brawler, but that’s just the beginning. Inspired by a Warcraft III mod, RUiN allows you to customize your character every time you step into the arena. Through this, you’ll be able to dictate how you play each match, and won’t be confined to the limitations set by the team. Everything from their looks to their abilities can be changed.
More than anything else, strategy is the name of the game in RUiN, as the abilities and skillsets have been created with various playstyles in mind. For example, if you’d like to take an aggressive approach, you’ll want to have more offensive attacks, with speed to ensure you get in quickly and deal the damage. But, if you prefer to be a distraction, or be more of a team player, there are abilities that’ll allow you to better control the arena itself.
It doesn’t stop there, though. Most abilities have the “Knockback” feature, which makes attacking and strategizing even more important. For a brief time, your opponent will be stunned, and allow you to follow up your strikes. Also, the arenas themselves deform during the match, which once again makes you think ahead and strategize how to win the match.
As stated before, RUiN has made it to its funding goal, meaning if you pledge now, your reward is basically guaranteed. However, there are only 3 days left, so if you want to pledge, you probably want to do so now.
