'Dreadline' Looking For Crowd Funding

by Rainier on Jan. 7, 2013 @ 3:33 a.m. PST

Dreadline is a fast paced action RPG/RTS hybrid where you control a team of monsters, equipped with a time machine, who visit human calamities to kill those who are already doomed to die.

Have you ever had the urge to control a team of monsters and lay waste to frail humans, but you were unclear of the moral implications?

Dreadline revolves around our main character, Ghost. He's an 8 year old boy with a bit of a troubled past. He was saved by a group of misfit monsters who were given a time machine by a highly educated alien from the future. What could go wrong?

Eerie Canal Entertainment (former Irrational, Iron Lore, and Harmonix developers) have launched a Kickstarter campaign for Dreadline, and are looking for $167,000 to fund the project.

The plan is to have 9 playable monsters and 7 calamities but depending on how the campaign proceeds there could be more monsters, more calamities, multiplayer monster fights, Mac port, iOS port, more languages, or anything else YOU may want.

Game features:

  • Single player control of a bloodthirsty monster squad
  • A large number of unlockable characters, each with their own special skills
  • An entirely new game engine, codenamed “shoe_gazer”, written specifically to bring lead artist Steven Kimura's drawings to life.
  • 10+ unique levels representing human calamities such as The Titanic, Pompeii, and Mall Zombie Apocalypse?
  • A minimum of space marines, unless you visit a space marine calamity
