For this week’s Switch Kickstarter Project of the Week, we will be looking at Ihobo games’ Silk. Here’s the description:
Silk is a Sandbox RPG Adventure Game and a tribute to the late Mike Singleton, especially his groundbreaking 1984 game The Lords of Midnight. The engine used to produce the world of Silk has an identical design to the original ‘landscaping engine’ he designed, although it uses 2D assets rendered in Unity to create a more vibrant feeling wilderness with retro roots and a contemporary lo-fi vibe. All the exploration and warfare of the original will be here, along with trading and recruiting Advisors who make up an RPG party inspired by the Clan Ring of King of Dragon Pass.
Silk is scheduled to release this November on PC, Mac and Linux, but they more support will speed up the process of porting the game to consoles. The project requires £15,000 and is currently sitting at £6,788 with 18 days remaining.
