Red Ash prototype footage looks pretty rough

Jul 25 // Kyle MacGregor
[embed]296626:59685:0[/embed] The work-in-progress was developed by Hyde Inc. using placeholder assets, some of which were pinched from Mighty No. 9, to give prospective backers a vague idea what Red Ash might be like. Hyde also showed off a character model of protagonist Beck that looks more representative of the concept art. Between that, the prototype, and this mock-up of a screenshot, maybe you can conjure a mental image of how the final product will turn out, you know, should it ever get funded.

Too little, too late?
Red Ash hasn't become an overnight success for Comcept. Unlike Mighty No. 9, the project is struggling to meet its $800,000 Kickstarter goal, having raised just over half that with 9 days to go. With the clock winding down, Comcept is trying to turn the campaign's fortunes around, announcing a potential PlayStation 4 release and sharing some early footage of a pre-alpha prototype.

Red Ash: The Indelible Legend isn't having quite as successful of a Kickstarter campaign as Mighty No. 9, which was basically funded instantly. It's currently sitting at roughly $300,000 of its $800,000 goal, and for the game...
