Highrisers - now on Kickstarter



  • Hi everyone,

    we've been working working for almost 3 years now on Highrisers, an Urban Survival RPG made in flixel.
    Our kickstarter campaign has been running for two weeks now and things look quite good.

    We've been featured by Kickstarter in their "Projects we love" category; yesterday, we've been greenlit on Steam, so yeah... fingers crossed!

    About the game:

    You control a team of four survivors, which have survived a mysterious calamity that has wiped mankind from the face of the earth and replaced them with zombie-like dreamers; shade-loving creatures that dwell in the dimly lit urban canyons.
    The gameplay consists of those elements:

    Scavenging resources
    scavenging

    Crafting

    Researching

    Combat (best done in teamwork)

    For the lighting, I've used the techniques described in my post here.

    So, if you're into that kind of gameplay, please check it out. We've invested quite some effort to make our trailer videos fancy , which you can see on the kickstarter page, but also here:

    So, if you have any questions, feel free to ask.
    Hope you like it. If you really fancy it, we are still struggling to get enough visibility, so every share on FB, Twitter or wherever would be much appreciated!
    Thanks! ♥
