'StarCrawlers' Kickstarter Campaign Successful With Time To Spare

by Rainier on Feb. 28, 2014 @ 8:54 a.m. PST

StarCrawlers is a classic sci-fi dungeon crawler in which you build a crew, raid a wreck, and get paid.

Run a crew of talented fixers taking shady jobs on the fringes of space where your choices dynamically change the way you explore the environment, fight your foes, resolve encounters, and how your story ultimately unfolds.

Whatever their particular skillset - be it hacking, smuggling or advanced ass-kicking - StarCrawlers are individuals who specialize in taking jobs others won't. Your team will venture into procedurally-generated environments full of lethal enemies, unexpected events, and deadly traps. Conspiracy is afoot, and you may stumble upon valuable information - how you choose to use it is up to you.

As you progress through the dungeon, you’ll face tougher and tougher enemies and be tested against elite bosses, requiring you to make strategic decisions about your team build, their combat specialization and their gear. Team build will also have an impact on what you can do while exploring, with each character class bringing their own specialized skills to bear to help you avoid obstacles, deal with NPCs, and navigate hazards more effectively.

Juggernaut Games has reached its Kickstarter Campaign goal in just 17 Days! With 13 days left in the campaign, the team and the community are looking forward to achieving additional stretch goals and adding more great content to StarCrawlers.

“StarCrawlers is a dream project for the Juggernaut team - we’re so happy to have the opportunity to continue working to shape it into the amazing game we know it will be.” said Asa Enochs, co-designer. “We feel privileged to have been flooded by such overwhelming support from the Kickstarter community and all of our backers.”
