Back in February, I told you about the ARPG Last Epoch which is being created by one of our long-time site visitors and today his studio Eleventh Hour Games have just launched their Kickstarter.
The Last Epoch team is looking to raise a fairly reasonable amount of £146,485 to get the game done and dusted ahead of a beta in 2019. To coincide with the Kickstarter launch, a new lengthy demo has also been released an I took it for a spin earlier today and was suitably impressed with what’s been created so far.
Judd Cobler, CEO, Eleventh Hour Games said, “Our team has been floored with the positive response we’ve received on Last Epoch thus far. I really do believe that with funding we’ll make the next great game in the genre.”
To fill you in on what to expect, here’s some backstory, a features listing, and a new Kickstarter video. If you like what you see and have tried the demo (available on the Kickstarter page) then add funds to the campaign.
About Last Epoch
Lost to the Void long ago, your world had ceded to its destruction. But now, you have found a way to save your world from this dark fate. Become the Traveler and journey through the different climatic moments in Eterra’s history. Fight the oppression of the Immortal Empire, stand your ground against the gods and their war, be witness to the untouched beauty of the world ignorant of humanity – and most importantly, discover the secret of the Void and the true nature of fate.
You start your adventure by choosing one of five classes: Knight, Mage, Rogue, Primalist, or Acolyte, and soon evolve into one of ten mastery classes: Beastmaster, Bladedancer, Void Knight, Paladin, Sorcerer, Spellblade, Marksman, Druid, Necromancer and Warlock. Hacking and slashing your way through different eras, it is up to you to save Eterra from The Void. And of course, collect as much loot as possible.
