Kickstarter continues to be a boon for those who want to develop their dream project. This is true especially for video game developers, as the platform offers them the chance to pitch their games to potential players, then get the funding they need to make it. Take as an example Mordhau, a multiplayer medieval fighting game that in less than five days on Kickstarter, has passed its funding goal of $80,000.
One of the biggest selling points of Mordhau is the scale of the battles. They can go from simple 1v1 duels to full-scale 64-player wars. By war we mean that there won’t just be men with weapons but also mounted enemies, siege engines, and even a castle or two to be stormed.
The best part, however, is that the combat system is free-flowing, meaning that the action isn’t rigid, but rather very fluid. Like in other action-based games, you can do new moves on the fly or counter someone if they’re trying to attack you mid-flurry.
The team behind the game is going the extra mile with the combat system to give players a truly unique experience. For example, they note that there are 240 angles that the player can attack from via their control scheme, an impressive amount by any standpoint. Add to that the desire to make the battles and combat feel as real as possible, and you’ve got yourself a standout combat title.
Plus, the environments you play in will have a significant effect on the battles. You’ll be able to do certain things to your opponents by simply pressing a button or flipping a switch at the right moment.
Moreover, you get to customize the way your medieval knight looks in the game through a comprehensive character creator. All in the name of giving the title a more personal touch.
As stated above, Mordhau has already reached its funding goal, and in fact, it’s almost doubling it, so any and all pledges made now are pretty much guaranteed to get their rewards.
