With every breaking news story of a video game developer running off with everyone’s money it becomes harder and harder to justify backing projects on Kickstarter. But out of all the game concepts we’ve seen pitched so far on the popular crowdfunding site, STRAFE‘s “banned” commercial has to be the best one yet. Thom Glunt (who has a background in directing music video/commercials) has produced a hilarious and disturbing ad for his game that rivals that of even what major marketing agencies are doing these days.
Described as “The future of video games: the fastest, bloodiest, deadliest, most adjective-abusing, action-packed first-person shooter of 1996,” Pixel Titans’ first-person shooter looks to re-create the nostalgic look and feel of classics like Doom, Quake, and Wolfenstein. But STRAFE won’t just be a throwback to old school games and will also be taking advantage of modern technology to create a brand new experience with a greater emphasis on dodge mechanics and auto-generating levels to constantly change up the carnage.
STRAFE has met its $185,096 goal and is now set for release in May 2016. There’s also already a broken version available for fans to download and test the “Revolutionary Extreme Combat Simulator” right now.
