Montreal, Quebec (PRWEB) December 20, 2013
Virtual Adventures, a small team of game developers from Montreal, is seeking funding support from the Kickstarter community to develop their upcoming game "Star Quest 2: United Galaxies". The company started developing this game way back in the year 1998, but they had to stop because of financial constraints. Now, with support from Kickstarter, the same team is looking forward to ending their long wait to complete the title.
The PC game industry has expanded significantly over the years, and hundreds of games are launched every day. However, with "Star Quest 2: United Galaxies", Virtual Adventures is looking to stand out from the rest by introducing a new mix of genres: Space Combat and Real-Time Strategy (RTS). Talking about the uniqueness of this game, the owner of Virtual Adventures Paul Lauzon said, "It lets you play space combat and surface missions as a pilot in multiplayer. It also includes real-time strategy (RTS) missions where you can create your base, gather resources, command a fleet and even control one of your ground turret or pilot a hover tank/ship from your fleet while the other units are following your orders."
The game is being developed as an open world space sim with several solar systems to explore and will include a non-linear storyline with random side-quests coming from a scenario generator. It will also let the gamers use their creativity to boost their tactics with a 'build your own space platform' feature using inter-connecting blocks that can be joined to create a 3D strategic base of operations.
Creating high quality games is an expensive affair, and hence, is often beyond the means of smaller game development companies. However, things have changed drastically with the advent of crowd funding platforms like Kickstarter. Virtual Adventures is banking on Kickstarter and gaming enthusiasts around the world to bring "Star Quest 2: United Galaxies" to the market. The funding goal for this campaign has been fixed at $30,000 CAD and Virtual Adventures will receive funds only if this amount is raised within the 26th of December.
