Faux-Operative Games finally made its way to Kickstarter after going through the Steam Greenlight phase. The indie title is picking up a bit of steam early on, garnering $3,000 during its first day on the crowd-funding platform, with a total goal of $10,000 as the prime target.
The game centers around climbing a tower. Not just any tower, a tower that harbors the souls who lost their lives recklessly. Players will have to fight, scrap, claw, dodge, and upgrade their way through the tower, fighting bosses and overcoming obstacles as they battle toward the top.
You can check out the pitch video below to get an idea of what the gameplay is like.
Bradley Cooper? When did he get out of making movies to make games?
Anyway, Ruin of the Reckless has been consistently compared to Nuclear Throne, another isometric, action-packed rogue-like that found a small slice of success in today’s gaming market.
There are a number of magic attacks and special abilities at the disposal of players, giving them a nice cache of destruction to dispense on enemies throughout each of the floors of Ruin of the Reckless.
The game is designed to give gamers just a bit more than what some other rogue-likes have put out recently, such as Binding of Isaac and Nuclear Throne. There’s a more story-oriented anchor in Ruin of the Reckless, especially centering around the reckless spirits you’ll be facing off against on each floor of the tower. It’s explained in the video that the lesser spirits that failed to scale the tower have lost their minds and have become feral, posing as opposition to anyone who dares enter the tower.
You’ll have a primary weapon, a secondary weapon, orbs to collect that will open up new abilities, cards that you can use as mutators to modify and change the game, along with items from a gift shop to stay refreshed during the climb.
