Wadjet Eye Games (The Blackwell Legacy, Unavowed) have started the Kickstarter campaign for their Vampire-themed RPG Nighthawks. The developers seek to raise $125k, and have already gathered $23k with 29 days to go.
The team describes Nighthawks as urban fantasy RPG. Together with Richard Cobbert (Sunless Sea/Sunless Skies, The Long Journey Home), the team came up with a concept merging the interactive fiction with the atmosphere of Vampire: The Masquerade: Bloodlines. The temptation to actually play this game was far too much to just leave the idea behind.
Nighthawks is a mix of story-driven RPG and undead life-simulation, where every decision you make is another move in your chess game against the world. Invest your time into learning new skills or honing your fighting style as you uncover the city’s mysteries and venture deep into its darkest secrets. Gather fellow outcasts to your side, binding them with favours and choosing when to cash in. Manage your eternal thirst, legitimately, or balancing the risks of being caught stalking unwary victims and working the black markets.
The developers plan to release the game for PC and Mac with a hope of bringing Nighthawks to iOS at release. Other platforms will be considered closer to the release date.
