'Wildman' Kickstarter Canceled, Future Of Developer Uncertain

by Rainier on Feb. 11, 2013 @ 1:37 p.m. PST

Wildman is a combination of an action RPG and RTS game with fast-paced combat that tests your reflexes and deep role-playing that rewards strategic thinking. The more you play, the greater your power.

Imagine a game where you control a single hero unit—the “Wildman”—in the middle of a raging battle between opposing forces in a specially designed War Zone. You engage the enemy and see your opponent switching tactics, forcing you to reconfigure your army to counter. You push the enemy back to their base before facing your opponent’s champion. Over the course of this battle, you upgrade your armies with new technology, execute special abilities, construct defenses, change your army composition, and shape-shift into new forms that grant you new abilities. This is Wildman.

Now imagine that between these War Zone battles you can go on role-playing adventures. You can explore fantastical environments. You can discover ancient dungeons full of mystery and treasure. You can earn new skills. You can discover and equip new weapons and armor. You can collect materials. You can craft new items. You can fight relentless onslaughts of men and monsters. This is also Wildman.

Gas Powered Games issued the following statement:

Greetings Kickstarters.

At this point, it makes sense for us to focus our attention on other ways to keep Gas Powered Games running. Unfortunately, we are unable to share any specifics in public.
