Hellpoint Kickstarter In Final Week, Livestream Coming This Saturday

Hellpoint Kickstarter In Final Week, Livestream Coming This Saturday

The kickstarter campaign for Cradle Games’ Souls in space RPG, Hellpoint has entered its final week, and it’s going to be close as they head towards their final push. To drive up some awareness, the studio is streaming the game from their Twitch Channel this Saturday at 8PM EST, where they’ll be playing through the game and giving folks a chance to meet the dev team.

We recently put together a preview of our hands on time with the game and felt that it had good potential, so much so to merit a backing. The controls and combat were very fluid for a game so early in development and the horror vibe was unlike anything the Soulsborne series had ever touched, and had jump scares that remind us of Dead Space. The interesting orbit cycle in which areas and events unlock depending on the time of day as well as the way the world changes when you die has a lot of potential to make playthroughs unique and memorable. Check out the full preview vid:

Don’t just take it from us, you can download the demo on Steam and try it out yourself. If you dig it’s promise as we did, you can head to their Kickstarter to help get it going, they have some pretty reasonable backer tiers. There’s nothing wrong with more Souls in our lives now is there?

    I just played a little of the demo and I can see a lot of potential as well. It’s hard for me to judge certain aspects as my laptop isn’t great, so I can’t tell if some issues are on their end or mine.

    Either way, with some refinement, it could be pretty fun.

    After thinking on it overnight, I made a pledge. They have some pretty low risk options and I’m interested in some of the mechanics.

    Played the updated demo on Steam. Already I can see vast improvements. The whole thing runs a lot smoother, and with hardly any bugs. And that boss. Aw man, I haven’t felt my heart pound like that in a while. An amazing design and an amazing fight.

    Made the pledge that gets me the game. Really, really hoping these guys make it.

    $5K I think…

    Oroboro streamed the game yesterday and we got a huge bump! It was pretty epic, he managed to kill the boss on like the fifth try. :D

    Oh I should present myself, I’m the designer on Hellpoint. :)

    Thanks a lot for trying out the demo! I’ll be here if you have any questions.

    SKAL! \m/

    Having been able to finally test the demo out, I have placed money to the kickstarter and hope it reaches it goal on time.

  12. Avatar Fallenangel700 says:

    Just over 6,000$ to go with just over 2 days to do it. This is going to be close…

  13. Avatar skarekrow13 says:

    Come on, final push

  14. Avatar Fallenangel700 says:

    800 left with a day and a half to go!

  15. Avatar skarekrow13 says:

    Yep…getting close enough where a quick sweep of the couch cushions and bins in the car might finish it off.

    It has reached the goal mark.
