Empire Eden is the sort of 2D side-scrolling adventure one would expect to see in the early 90s, right up there with Golden Axe and Altered Beast. Thing is, it hasn’t been made yet. They need help to do it and they’ve reached out to Kickstarter to make it happen.
I’ll be honest: I wasn’t completely sold as I took my first look at the game and read the text on their Kickstarter page. But watching the video changed my mind. It’s got a really unique style (almost Western) and the story is really interesting. I’m excited to see where they go with it.
But unless others help out, they won’t be going with it at all. They’re asking for a measly $19,000. Surely there are enough old-school action/platform fans out there to help get this game made, no?
