Relic Hunters Legend is an online RPG with 3D environments, a large variety of guns to collect, space ducks to shoot, and an immersive, in-depth story to boot.

The previous game in the series, Relic Hunters Zero, was a 100% free-to-play, open-sourced game on Steam that boasted an engaged community of over a million players around the world. Rogue Snail is now fully focused on expanding the Relic Hunters universe to a full commercial release.

Honest free-to-play model: we want to make a great game for everyone, not nickel-and-dime you! Run and gun online with friends in full 3D environments, with smart enemies, cool abilities and items! Collect hundreds of items, hunters and relics, and customize your perfect relic-hunting machine!

Yesterday, Rogue Snail concluded their Kickstarter campaign for Relic Hunters Legend by by raising a total of $55,185. The campaign even reached its first stretch goal: "Asteroid Dungeon", an endless challenge mode with daily and seasonal leaderboards.

Additionally Rogue Snail released a Multiplayer Game Demo to all their Alpha tier backers immediately after the end of the campaign, allowing fans to get a glimpse of early gameplay.

Open development to the game has now begun, with the developers sharing roadmaps and a public Trello board with their Kickstarter backers.

People can still get immediate access to the game and participate in development through a "Founders" program, which operates like a "Slacker-Backer" campaign. Players can pledge to support further develoment and join the Kickstarter community.

The game will go Free-to-Play in 2019 when it leaves Early Access. Backing the campaign will allow players to play the game as early as possible, participate in development, earn a bunch of cool stuff, and help the developers stay independent. To be transparent and clear with the monetization aspects of the game, the game's creator, Mark Venturelli, has written a Free-to-Play Manifesto.
