Every week, Cliqist trawls through Kickstarter, IndieGogo and almost every other crowdfunding site where we’ll be able to find people raising money to create games. And every week, we’re left both awestruck by many of the games that are being crowdfunded, as well as disappointed that some of these games not only aren’t getting the attention they deserve, but also in the fact that they haven’t gotten the financial backing of many AAA titles.

With that in mind, every week, Cliqist will bring you some of our favourite crowdfunding campaigns that we could find. In this weekly instalment, we’ll be focusing on games that have launched on IndieGogo. If you think that we’ve missed any games, or think that we haven’t giving enough attention to some campaigns, feel free to let us know. Please bear in mind, that this column focuses mainly on IndieGogo campaigns, you’ll want to head over to our Weekly Launchpad to see the Kickstarter campaigns.

The Game:

Dispersion is an RPG hack ‘n’ slash where you have to slay each wave of demons with the use of traps, wards, melee/range dps or spells. It’s one of the most focused mob directing top-down hack-n-slash game, not because it’s augmented reality, but because of the combat, mob directing, spec/build system.

Only if you focus on one character specification goal not only using traps or only spells for instance, but a combination of traps, wards, perks and spells will you will reach the end. A few examples are a pure range dps build, a regenerating melee build, a kiting build or choose a  perfect complementary balance it’s up to you.

  • It’s an intricate hack ‘n’ slash game that takes place in reality.
  • Choose how you want to play kite, cast, range dps or melee with a  combination of wards, traps, spells and perk abilities.
