Wave Interactive has gone live on Kickstarter with their story-driven 2D adventure game, Buck, as they aim to secure $30,000 in funds and release the game on PC, Mac, Linux, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.
Buck is a 2D Metroidvania adventure set in a haunted and sombre post-apocalyptic wasteland, placing you in the role of the titular Buck, a motorcycle garage mechanic who has decided to leave everything he knows behind in an attempt to discover the truth behind a girl’s disappearance, all the while struggling to adjust himself to a world he doesn’t fully understand.
Gal Kfir, project lead at Wave Interactive, stated, “We’re excited to share with you Buck’s Kickstarter. Over the years the game has evolved quite significantly along with the new campaign, we now also have playable pre-alpha of Buck! You now can experience the desolate and dangerous universe of the game for yourself. If you like what you see, please pledge on our game, there are some fabulous tiers and rewards on offer – you can even get your pet included as an NPC!”
Buck has been trained by his stepfather to fight, shoot, and fix nearly everything, allowing him to take on (and perhaps even surprise) even the largest brutes with his sheer speed, strength, and determination.
Here are some key features, as presented on the official press release:
◾ Destroy enemies with Buck’s own hand crafted, upgradeable weapons.
◾ Complete missions in varied and distant locations, while fighting the onslaught of different types of enemy.
◾ Earn and loot Scraps to purchase more items and upgrade your arsenal.
◾ Explore the 2D world with hidden passages, dark secrets and meet its remorseless characters.
◾ Negotiate with the salty denizens of Westown, wayward merchants and mysterious mercenaries, each with their own goals and agenda.
◾ Actions and consequences – choose your answers wisely, there’s no going back. Every decision is automatically saved.
