DarkForge has announced Nekro, a "twisted, dark and stylized summoning game" now in progress as a Kickstarter project. Planned for Mac, Windows, and Linux PCs, the game will put players in the role of a powerful necromancer empowered to conjure evil minions and conquer empires in a randomly-generated world. Through Kickstarter, DarkForge is hoping to raise $100,000 by May 4 to aid in the production of the game.

Hailing from the era of great classics such as Myth: The Fallen Lords, Giants: Citizen Kabuto, Dungeon Keeper and more, we are creating a game rooted deep in PC gaming's history, but with all the flourishes you've come to expect from a modern experience.

In Nekro, you play as a powerful necromancer summoning hordes of undead minions to do your bidding. Unlike a standard RTS, each creature you summon within the game is not under your direct control. Each unit will exhibit a handful of special behaviors unique to its playstyle. The challenge of the game comes from picking the right combination of summons for your situation. The world you explore is generated randomly, and offers a fresh experience with each play session. Nekro takes a different approach to the way modern crafting systems are handled by allowing players to “brew” spells they use in cauldrons. These special brews augment the game rules and allow players a very direct control over their experience. In Nekro, the world is always growing, expanding and changing, offering players a different challenge every time they play the game.

Nekro will feature:
  • Stylized, randomly generated worlds
  • Deep, situational summoning-based combat system
  • Rich ‘brewing’ system for making new items and spells
  • An ever-expanding world to conquer

DarkForge is a California-based group of industry veterans hailing from studios such as Sony, Microsoft, Blizzard and more. We have many years of experience making quality games and are looking forward to sharing our vision for Nekro with the world!

Not many developers have the courage focus on the evil side of the force. I hope this reaches its funding target.

Sounds interesting .. but I've completely blown my gaming budget this month though what with pre-ordering Deus Ex 3, supporting a big box Wasteland 2, Shadow Run and picking up The Witcher :) It's great to be flooded with great games for the Mac though so not complaining :D
