Not many games can get away with not having some sort of Kickstarter video, even if it’s just the developers playing talking heads to the camera. Worlds Quest is different though. A couple (tiny) screenshots, and some gameplay features, some background on the world, and that’s it. But sometimes the idea of something is enough to get the wallets open. This top down rpg is oldschool in so many ways, from the look, to the quaint backstory. The primitive graphics aren’t slick, nor are they stylishly low tech, they’re almost filler for the adventure underneath, which promises hundreds of hours of gameplay, and tens of thousands of item combinations. It’s got player houses and even shops to own for you to make money at. There’s a planned offline version where you’ll be able to host players in your own world. Worlds Quest is the type of game Kickstarter is great for. A small developer looking for a few thousand dollars to help make a passion project a reality. It doesn’t always have to be a $100,000 campaign, sometimes it’s just a guy with a computer and some inspiration.
The World Quest Kickstarter campaign runs until October 15th, with a funding goal of $2,500.
