A few months ago, we reported that an old-school, Fallout inspired RPG called Encased to be in the works over at Dark Crystal Games. The developers announced that Encased will launch its Kickstarter on September 13 2018, which is 4 hours from now. The purpose of crowdfunding this project is to expand the game world and give the developers more room to introduce new and unique game mechanics.
The developers explained that they had been working on the game for the past 10 months and is now in pre-alpha stage. They are fully confident of the project’s completion. The goal of the crowdfunding campaign is to raise $100,000. Any revenue collected will be used to refine the game and expand the team. Pledges from fans will expand the main campaign and increase the number of locations available to explore.
“Dark Crystal Games is a small studio and our resources are limited. However with the first stages of development behind us, we are positive we will be able to complete the project, polish the details, and deliver the post-apocalyptic RPG everyone is waiting for,” says Vyacheslav Kozikhin, Studio Head.
A regular play-through of the main story of Encased is estimated at 30 hours. The player will be able to explore more than 100 handcrafted locations and encounter up to 75 unique random events. Each of the six main factions has its own storyline and various endings.
