I don’t know about you, but I definitely feel like an adrenalin rush right about now. A new Kickstarter has launched for a high-speed multiplayer game called Sector 13. It is set to be a combat heavy starfighter game in space to be enjoyed with your friends. The game is from a third person perspective which I think sets it apart from a few other spacey shooting games.
With 29 days to go, Sector 13 Kickstarter has just over 80 backers and has raised $3,500 of it’s sizeable $135K funding goal.
Sector 13 seems to have a lot of influences including Starfox and Halo
“Sector 13 combines the adrenaline-fueled action of games like Halo and Quake 3 Arena with the combat flight mechanics from games like Starfox and Crimson Skies. “
The developers hope to give players lots of different starfighters to choose from and personalized weapon load out. Players will also be able to customize their starfighter to their fighting style. To be honest the idea of having a 16-player competitive match is what enthrals me most. I think most games seem to only offer up to 4 players so this automatically seems way more intense.
The 4 different game modes gave me a bit of a chuckle:
- Blow Up All The Things,
- Corporate Wars,
- Capture The Fightpod,
- Bury the Ace.
Sector 13 is currently on the Steam Greenight, so if you are interested, but don’t have the money to back it be sure to vote it up. The developers seem to have high hopes for this project, they have even specified their stretch goals. I think it’s a very ambitious project, but they seem to know what they are doing so the best of luck to them.
