The lights are on
I have been looking around on kickstarter a little bit and I was so impressed by this project that I just had to share it with someone. Judging by the video they posted, it is a FPS town-builder with siege elements. You build up a town, fight off monsters, and build catapults and stuff to conquer nearby towns. It looks like you can level up your character and equip him with gear too.
It looks like a new project and doesn't have many backers yet, I would love to see this mentioned in an article or something? I think it looks good, but needs a little more exposure.
Oh sorry its not an FPS its a third-person shooter. Sorry about the confusion.
Anyways it looks like a great game. Give the video a look and if you like it, submit a news tip for it. Talus has been trying to get some media exposure but I guess it can be hard when you are an unknown developer.
These words you speak interest me. Have they done any other games? The Kickstarter material looks good, if they can get backed.
Their kickstarter page says that they have worked on other game projects in the past, including some AAA games, but they don't mention which ones.
A few of the backers have requested that they put up a video interview, showing us who they are, why this game is important to them, and tell us what games they worked on in the past. I think it would really help them draw interest to their current project if they came out of their shell and talked to us a little bit.
I can't help but think this game would draw piles of money if they had a little more media exposure. Their gameplay video really impressed me.
Like you mentioned Lofhua, they need to come out and tell everyone who they are and what they're trying to accomplish. People aren't going to give money to the developers just because the concept is cool, they need to see for themselves, and who the developers actually are.
It looks pretty good. I think I will back them...sometime. They still have a ways to go, though. The way I look at backing is more of a pre-order and less of a "giv[ing] money to developers", as Abertix put it. I want the game, not a happy developer. Selfish me, I know.
So cool how people are using Kickstarter.

Rainheart, I'll never forget you.
Could someone at Gameinformer schedule an interview with someone from Talus? You could do a story like "The life of an Aspiring Indie Developer" and they could tell you how they got into the gaming industry, what projects they have worked on, and how they came about to start their own game project.
It would be a great way for them to introduce themselves to the gaming community, and you would have the satisfaction of helping to jump-start a developer's career.
Anyways it seems like an excellent online game. Give the video clip a look and in the event you like it, submit a announcement tip for it. Talus may be attempting to obtain some mass media publicity but I guess it may be tough when that you are an mysterious developer.
