New project combines action-RPG and RTS gameplay
Teased last month by Gas Powered Games as “Project W,” the studio’s next game has now been unveiled as Wildman. This PC-only title will draw from the team’s prior experience working on Dungeon Siege, Supreme Commander, and Demigod. Given this blend of elements and the fact that it’s a single-player game with cooperative modes, Wildman seems ideal for people who want to play MOBAs competitively but aren’t skilled enough to do so.
“Wildman takes the elements that we’ve crafted over the years with our action role-playing games and combines them with the things we love about real-time strategy,” said GPG founder Chris Taylor. “It’s original, it’s unique and we think our fans will embrace this new approach.”
Now all they need is $1.1 million in funding on Kickstarter. This is surely going to be a stressful, exciting month for Gas Powered. While there hasn’t been too much shown yet, I do really like the gameplay concept as described on the Kickstarter page. Give it a look!
