Black Forest Games, the team behind Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams, have launched a new Kickstarter campaign for DieselStörmers, a high octane run and gun action game coming to Wii U amongst other current gen consoles and PC. The game was originally announced as Ravensdale, with a Kickstarter game in August last year but failed to reach the large base goal of $500,000. This time the game has been rebranded and with additional funding sought elsewhere, the new base goal is the much more achievable $50,000.
In DieselStörmers players enter a city where “medieval meets machine, armour is powered by roaring engines, princesses wield wrenches in oil-stained overalls, and not a single dragon dares to brave the smog-filled sky.” DieselStörmers is described as a furious run & gun game that follows the towns folk of Ravensdale as they battle to take back their city from a rampaging ork horde. Upon release, the game will have a story mode that allows the player to choose a range of varying missions with custom difficulties, objectives and parameters. There will be the option of singleplayer mode or with up to four teammates in a co-op multiplayer mode to enable additional team strategies like energy bonds between players, upgrades, complementing fire patterns and the parallel use of certain environmental objects.
Should the game reach it’s base goal, Black Forest Games plan to bring the game to Steam’s Early Access program. The final game will also be released on Windows PC, followed by Linux and Mac versions (via Steam), as well as Xbox One, PS4 and Wii U.
