Satellite Reign takes to Kickstarter

Post by N1NJA FWG on Mon 1 Jul 2013 - 13:13



5 Lives Studio is creating a spiritual successor to the Syndicate/Syndicate Wars RTS games and have taken to Kickstarted for funding.

The small 5 man team are headed by Mike Diskett who was working at Bullfrog 15 years ago when the original titles were created and is hoping to deliver what the fans wanted and what the recent EA FPS failed to deliver.

It looks like the small team assembled here have a lot of experience and have worked on games such as GTA IV, Darksiders II, Star Wars & L.A. Noire so there is good pedigree here.




As a big fan of the original, I am going to lump on to this one Very Happy

Very interesting, I loved the original and although the FPS failed to sell it's still IMO a really good game that finally bought some original ideas to the genre and the nods to the original are brilliant.

Loved the first game, and you can pick it up for the PC on gog.com at the moment very cheaply

Will keep an eye on this one

I do recall liking the original on Amiga. I didnt like the rehash of it at all - and it was as close to bieng as syndicate game as them big fat BMW things are a mini Smile

I was real tempted today - there was 1 £13 one left - but I started going thru motions and forgot about it... Could be very good.. but...

I tried the demo and thought it seemed ok - it may have done better being treated as a new IP and distancing itself from the RTS originals because the move to FPS did irk a lot of fans of the original.
