Robert Maher and Tyler Bud launched a Kickstarter for his retro sci-fi adventure game Rex Rocket with a goal set for $6,000. Now, just over a week later, the campaign has surged past said goal and is now en route to the first stretch goal, a Mac release. Combining some great aspects of Mario, Mega Man, and Metroid with a modern 21st century feel, Rex Rocket creates a unique experience that appeases both modern gamers as well as those seeking the nostalgic feeling akin to many a legendary title. For a minimum of $10 you can reserve a drm-free copy of Rex Rocket for PC upon release (expected January 2014).
About Rex Rocket:
Set in Earth’s distant future, Rex Rocket references the classic story of Man vs. Machine. You play as Captain Rex Rocket, a former war hero who now spends his days transporting scientists around to the far reaches of the universe in his epic Star Cruiser, the S.S. Montana. The game begins on Earth with Rex and crew on a routine mission for the Council of Science – to transplant bio-engineered Terra-Oozlings to an uninhabited planet in the far away solar system of Washington. While the ship’s crew are in cryo-sleep, all heck breaks loose when Terra-Oozings escape their tanks and cause the ship’s main computer, LAUREN (Logic Analysis User Reactive Entity Network), to go insane. It’s up to Rex Rocket to stop the computer, rescue his crew, and save the day!
