Copper Dreams Kickstarter Campaign is Live

The Kickstarter campaign for Copper Dreams, the next RPG from Serpent in the Staglands developers Whalenought Studios, is now live. Joe and Hannah have put together a very impressive pitch explaining every aspect of the game: the 80s-style offworld cyberpunk setting, the focus on verticality and movement in an isometric environment, the weapons and cybernetic equipment, the complex implementation of stealth and infiltration, the unique asynchronous turn-based combat system, and the previously described health and resting mechanics. Here's the pitch video, which includes some cool-looking alpha gameplay footage, and an overview:

We’re so excited to be back on Kickstarter with our new game, Copper Dreams! It's an isometric, party-based, turn-based, pen-and-paper-inspired game in a dystopian cyberpunk setting. Think an isometric Escape from New York, or Deus Ex.

As an Agent of Asset Inquiries that syndicates hire to gather items, intel and citizens of value, you'll often be put through sensitive situations not to win but to minimize your level of failure and tackle conflicts with clever stealth (or lots of bullets).

Our previous successful Kickstarter, Serpent in the Staglands, featured a no-handholding philosophy, an open world, and challenging puzzles. We got a lot of great feedback and learned a lot from the experience, and have moved forward with a new RPG we think you'll love with even more systems and mechanics to support this gameplay style.

Copper Dreams emphasizes the adventures that happen between quests and narrative events, which can be just as fun, unexpected and dangerous. To enable this, the player will traverse a cyberpunk world while scaling buildings, taking part in turn-based combat between humans, robots and many other types of foes, all while managing their character’s health through a detailed system of physical ailments.

Players have many tools to help them succeed in their missions. The player can engage in espionage gathering, modifying and upgrading weapons and disabling or killing enemies by targeting specific body parts. To do this justice we've designed a ruleset from the ground up we call the Burning Candle to work with all these mechanics.
You can secure a copy of Copper Dreams for just $15, with beta access for $25 and alpha for $35. The campaign's funding goal is $40,000, with stretch goals for an enhanced soundtrack and voice acting going up to $60,000. The game is scheduled to be released on March 2017. Let's hope they make it - Kickstarter isn't what it used to be.

P.S. Don't forget to vote for Copper Dreams on Steam Greenlight!
