Lightbulb Crew — featuring portfolios from Ubisoft, DICE, and Codemasters — is making moves on its mold-breaking MOBA (Multiplayer Online Battle Arena) Games of Glory. The free-to-play game, currently on its Alpha-stage, is launching a Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight to attempt to reach a polished final product. A cinematic trailer, featuring some of the game’s background story, was released alongside these promotional efforts.
According to a press release, the game has developed through community feedback. The game now needs community funding and support to develop to completion.
The Kickstarter page holds a goal of $100,000 to be reached by Aug. 21. $15 will earn backers a key to the closed Beta of the game. $10,000 will net three elastic-pocketed supporters a listing as Executive Producer in the game’s credits, posters, figurines, artbooks, a 3D print of a created clone faction, custom in-game content, a meet and greet with Lightbulb Crew, VIP access to the game’s events, and more.
Games of Glory offers a persistent outer-space world with hack-and-slash and shooter gameplay to differentiate it from other MOBAs. It also includes player roles, where users can take on different positions in the “e-sporting” world, such as a star player, tournament planner, recruiter, trainer, club head, etc.
The “Clones” that the player takes control of have access to more than 40 weapons as well as unique skillsets. The clones are customizable, in terms of appearance and mechanics. The environments change in regards to wins or losses.
If $500,000 is accrued through the game’s Kickstarter, it could see a release for next-generation consoles. For now, it is available for PC and Mac, according to its Steam Greenlight page.
