Secrets of Raetikon  



Back Secrets of Raetikon for a playable alpha build


3:00 PM on 10.23.2013



Broken Rules is taking Secrets of Raetikon to Indiegogo to help finish development. The aerial action-adventure title is scheduled for a full release in Q1 2014, but with this crowdfunding campaign, it can be yours right now on PC, Mac, and eventually Linux. The lowest tier ($10) comes with alpha access to the full albeit unfinished game and a level editor.

"We need to continue working on the game for at least two months, cover our license fees, and promote the game at a number of game festivals," writes the studio. "We're based in Europe, so traveling to the United States, where most of those festivals take place, costs quite a bit of money."

It should also be pointed out that this is a flexible funding campaign so, even if the $40,000 goal isn't reached, Broken Rules will still get its cut of whatever amount is raised. From what I saw of Raetikon at PAX, this is worth playing -- if not now, then closer to final release.

Review: Axiom Verge

It seems like a foregone conclusion when looking at Axiom Verge that comparisons are going to be made to Metroid. It is, without doubt, similar in more ways than it differs from Nintendo's iconic franchise. The differences matter, though, and Axiom Verge merges classic environment design with new mechanical twists, producing a game that feels both familiar and fresh at the same time.more
