Game studio inXile entertainment has taken to Kickstarter to raise the required $1,250,000 it needs to make the The Bards Tale IV sequel to the popular and quirky Bards Tale trilogy.
In just two days the development team have received over $790,000 thanks to 18,000+ backers who would like to see the game make the jump from concept into reality and revive the dungeon crawler game.
Watch the video below to learn more from inXile entertainment about what you can expect in the Bards Tale IV game, creators of Wasteland 2 and Torment. Features of the game include :
– A single-player, party-based dungeon crawl, rich in exploration and combat
– Dungeons filled not just with dangerous fights but with challenging puzzles and devious riddles
– Dynamic phase-based combat, where the pace of battle is animated and fluid, but still gives you time to think and respond to your enemies
