Online Shooter-RPG Relic Hunters Legend Launches on Kickstarter


Brazilian indie game development studio Rogue Snail officially launched their Kickstarter campaign for their latest project, Relic Hunters Legend. The previous game in the series, Relic Hunters Zero, is a 100% free-to-play, open-sourced game on Steam that boasted an engaged community of over 1.2 million players around the world. Relic Hunters Legend has been teased over the last few weeks with snippets of gameplay along with a web comic series, and has released an extended, fully animated trailer to kick off the launch of the Kickstarter campaign with a punch!

Relic Hunters Legend is a top-down, twin-stick shooter with cooperative online multiplayer, showcasing an innovative mix of 2D and 3D art, and filled with familiar characters from the game’s predecessor, Relic Hunters Zero. With even more evil space ducks and turtles to shoot, relics to loot, an in-depth storyline, and the ability to play with friends – Relic Hunters Legend promises an experience of hectic fun and many memorable moments and will be arriving next year on Steam for PC, Mac, & Linux, with console releases to follow.

The game will go Free-to-Play in 2019 when it leaves Early Access. Backing the campaign will allow players to play the game as early as possible, participate in development, earn a bunch of cool stuff, and help the developers stay independent. To be transparent and clear with the monetization aspects of the game, the game’s creator, Mark Venturelli, has written a Free-to-Play Manifesto. (Read the Developers’ Free-to-Play Manifesto)
