The Dark Phantom hits up Kickstarter for funding to complete game


3:30 PM on 09.03.2014



The Dark Phantom is a neo-noir comic-book influenced third-person shooter about a man calling himself the "Dark Phantom" as he hunts down criminals across the city. Sound familiar? The Dark Phantom is reminiscent of Rorschach from Watchmen, with his trench coat, bandaged face, and fedora. His views, morality, and mission seem to be in alignment with Rorschach too.

You'll control the Dark Phantom through rooftops and back alleys, engaging in intense shootouts with the denizens of the city. The game will feature a cover-based system, destructible terrain, and a "Bullet Tag" system like Red Dead Redemption's Deadeye mode.

The Dark Phantom is close to its target release date of November 2014, but the team at Pardis Game Studio needs more funding to put the finishing touches on the game. Any additional funding will be put toward improvements to environmental destruction, more guns, more enemies, better voiceovers, and ports to Mac, Linux, PS3, and Xbox 360.

Right now the game is going for $15 with a Kickstarter pledge, with plenty of incentives to donate higher.

Review: Gunman Clive 2

I don't think anyone, including the game's creator, expected Gunman Clive to be such a massive hit. As an homage to retro platformers it was a joy to play, and the ridiculously cheap base price made it easy to take the plunge. Gunman Clive 2 delivers pretty much everything you'd want out of a sequel, even if it doesn't push the envelope.more

February's Xbox One Games with Gold is already out

February's the shortest month of the year, but Xbox is artificially lengthening it by spilling it over into January. That's the only way to explain this month's Xbox One Games with Gold already popping up for free on the Xbox...more

1996-style shooter Strafe looks like the start of something great

I've greatly enjoyed the promotional work that's gone into Strafe, also known as STRAFE®, also known as "the goriest shooter of 1996." But beyond the head-exploding live-action throwback trailer, wonderful as that was (h...more
