Void Rim - Indie game off to a great start

Tucson, AZ - The indie game studio Desert Owl Games announced today the launch of their Kickstarter campaign for Void Rim. Void Rim is a next-generation online turn-based strategy game set in a “science-fantasy” universe and based on Epic’s Unreal Engine. The Kickstarter campaign went live today, and the team is looking to raise $40,000. Void Rim is nearing its closed beta period, and anyone who participates in the campaign will have guaranteed access to the beta.

“We are pretty different from a lot of the Kickstarter campaigns out there. We are a real indie studio with experienced developers working in a genre the rest of the industry generally won't touch. We are about making that fun strategy game players have been waiting for.” said Arthur Griffith, co-founder of Desert Owl Games

The staff at Desert Owl Games really know their stuff, as Void Rim was designed by the same people who created the indie game hit Pox Nora. Most strategy games come with small set of characters for use in predefined strategies, Void Rim is much more open than that. Every character can be radically customized, and players choose everything that will be available to them during a match. This includes in-game upgrades that can dramatically alter how different characters are used. Void Rim is going to make strategy gamers everywhere very happy.

“We wanted to allow players to really explore their creativity, as Void Rim is way more open than a standard strategy game. It’s really a new direction for turn based strategy games.” added Charles Chen, co founder

“Multiplayer is a tier one feature of Void Rim. Balance is paramount in a strategy game, and our goal is to make the most exciting turn based strategy game out there today.” - Justin Felker, co founder of Desert Owl Games

In return for their pledge, Kickstarter backers will receive a wide range of reward items, including t-shirts, posters, limited edition prints, lifetime access to the game and a chance to have your likeness put in Void Rim as well as your name worked into the lore of the game.
