GoD Factory: Wingmen Returns To Kickstarter

Try The Space Combat MOBA For Free

GoD Factory: Wingmen is an impressive attempt to marry accessible arcade space sim combat with the 4v4 MOBA framework, and it's back for another crowd-funding attempt on Kickstarter. In an attempt to raise its $70,000 CAD target, Nine Dots Studio has released a totally free work-in-progress build that you can play right now, with backers able to continue playing the alpha and beta before the finished version releases next Spring.

We've got the pitch below, and I was very complimentary about the project's early build in our GoD Factory: Wingmen hands-on preview. Will the second time be the charm for this ambitious indie effort?

GoD Factory: Wingmen is a multiplayer space combat game in which the player works with a team of up to three other players to destroy the opponent’s Carrier while defending their own.

Before joining online matches, the player assembles two gunships by individually selecting the twelve parts that compose each ship. These parts are bought from the game's shop using Credits earned by playing games online. Once in-game, the players must destroy different key areas of the enemy Carrier to incapacitate it and ultimately destroy it. Destroying a Carrier part gives penalties to the enemy team, and each broken part inflicts a different penalty. The key to victory will be to work as a team and many weapons and abilities will have secondary uses that can only be triggered by joining up with other players. A game should last about 15 minutes on average and can't stretch beyond 25 minutes. The game will be playable both in third person, to see your ship you've built, or from inside the cockpit, for greater immersion.
