Tribute Games, fronted by the designer behind Scott Pilgrim vs The World and Wizorb, is seeking funds for a new project entitled Mercenary Kings. Paul Robertson describes it as "a 2D action game that combines precise platforming action and a compelling crafting system," and as you'd expect, it looks absolutely gorgeous.
Mercenary Kings seems set to be a frenetic action-platformer in the vein of Metal Slug or Contra, but provides a deep weapon upgrade system allowing players to customise every aspect of their firearms. Four-player co-op has been confirmed, as has custom-made knives and an economy system.
Like what you see? Tribute Games are seeking $75,000 over the next month, so once again it's time to put your money where your mouth is.
