'Umbra' Kickstarter Successful, Stretch Goals Unlocked

by Rainier on June 1, 2015 @ 4:53 p.m. PDT

Wolcen: Lords of Mayhem is an CryEngine 3 powered RPG, Hack & Slash, Horror Fantasy hybrid.

One hundred years ago, human race almost extinguished. Since that time, only a few survivors remain and fight for their lives. You are one of them. Find resources, items, allies and exploit the powers of the Umbra to survive. But be careful, you are their prey...

Umbra is an open world action-RPG taking place in a corrupted world that is falling apart. You are a former soldier, forced to flee the death penalty because of your magic powers. Being tracked down by humans and hunted by the monsters of the Wild, you are recruited by a mysterious group of Templars, and thus your epic adventure begins.

With two weeks reamining, Solar Fall Games' Kickstarter for Umbra has funded its initial goal of $225,000.

"We've raised over $232,000 so far; to each and every one of our 6,701 backers, press and Let's Players and Twitch streamers - thank you!  With your kind words and coverage, we've funded early!" said Daniel Dolui Lead Programmer and Game Director at SolarFall Games. "Reaching the stretch goals will enrichen Umbra and we are really excited be announcing our plans in today's Kickstarter update!"

If we reach $230,000, all backers at Warrior or higher will get a Kickstarter-exclusive green necklace that will grant them an extra boost to the gold and experience they earn as they play... wait, we already reached $230,000 didn't we? Then now you're all getting a free KS-exclusive item!

Next up we have a highly requested stretch goal: GamePad support! You're currently making your way to this second stretch goal, and right now you're at around 33%, which considering the huge push we had over the weekend, is actually closer that you think!

When launched, Umbra will be available in English and French. But knowing that we have fans from all over the world, we've also added a stretch goal to include localization to Spanish, German and Russian, so that more of you can experience Umbra in a new way. So if you want to play Umbra in English, French, Spanish, German and Russian, you know what to do! Of course, multiplayer is one of the first big steps for Umbra as it adds a new mode that can be played either online or over a LAN connection. And we can't implement multiplayer into Umbra without your support, so please don't forget to share the link to the campaign so that you can bring even more backers here who want to see Umbra grow!

And right after the first multiplayer mode we have one of the other highly requested stretch goals... a main female hero for Umbra! This won't be a re-skin of the male hero. This female hero will be a proper female

protagonist with her foot set firmly in the lore for Umbra, and we definitely want to see her implemented into the game.

There are several other stretch goals in the list which you can check below, so please spread the word and tell all of your friends about Umbra so that we can all work toward reaching all stretch goals!
