Movie Games has announced that it has started a Kickstarter campaign to crowd-source MythBusters: The Game. The forthcoming title allows players to step into the shoes of the beloved Discovery television series and “turn popular real-world myths inside out”. The development team is working in conjunction with Discovery to ensure that the game is faithful to its roots. A quick look at the Kickstarter page reveals the modest $7,980 goal and that the team has already raised $5,405 with 28 days to go.
The players start with a blueprint. After working out the mechanics of a myth, it’s time to roll up your sleeves and prepare the experiment! Wear a hard cap, because at this stage, everything can happen, explosions included. There’s also a management angle, where the goal is to please your audience and secure the budget for future episodes. You’re a MythBuster in front of and behind the camera!
