A few days ago we reported about the Kickstarter campaign for the upcoming mecha game M.A.S.S. Builder by Vermillion Digital. Today we learn that it has been successful.
The game, developed by a small Thai team, launched its Kickstarter campaign on March 12 supported by Sekai Project in order to fund the final stretch of development of the PC version.
They asked backers for a rather modest $32,000 adding to a previous Indiegogo campaign and a development grant they have received. Now the campaign is sitting on $33,506, well above the goal with nineteen days to go.
There are stretch goals up to $70,000 and plenty of times to achieve some or all of them.
The game is very interesting, offering extremely extensive customization of your mecha, from parts to colors and decals, to create a truly personal giant robot and fight against the mysterious “beasts of the void.” Add some lovely anime-style characters and what appears to be an interesting story, and we have a potential winner.
A demo is already available to create your own mecha and take it for a spin, and we learn that it has been downloaded 2,500 times.
While the campaign’s goal is to complete the PC version of the game, the team is also planning a Nintendo Switch port down the line.
If you want to help back the game and reach those stretch goals, you can do so at the official Kickstarter page, where an October 2019 release window is also mentioned.
