Old school gamers should have an idea of what’s going on already. Game Refuge is looking to go back to the glory days and rework their classic Genesis action title, General Chaos. The new game, General Chaos II : Sons of Chaos doesn’t stray too far from the formula that made the original such a classic; shooting your friends, blowing stuff up, and being a jerk to one another. So what’s in the update? The Sons of Chaos Kickstarter page has a lot of information, not to mention a funding video that give’s a solid idea of what’s planned. However, just in case you’re a little lazy, this bit from the funding page does a great job of wrapping it up into a nice little package :
The Core Game is primarily a reinvention of the fast paced original, but we’re using today’s technology to make it easier & more FUN to play. It will have a simple, intuitive Touchscreen (or Mouse & Keyboard) controls. Single Player, Multi-Player LAN / Multi-Player Internet game play options. Featured dynamic cameras that follow the cartoony combatants across scrolling, interactive, 3D environments.
Anyone interested in supporting the project may also want take a close look at the wide range of backer rewards. There’s a lot of swag available for fans of the series, as well as anyone who’s a fan of the developer’s previous games like Spy Hunter, Arch Rivals, and Rampage. The Kickstarter campaign for General Chaos II : Sons Of Chaos runs until October 6th, and has a funding target of $125,000.
