Mercenary Kings is a side-scrolling run-and-gun with weapon crafting elements. Developer Tribute Games (made up of the team from Scott Pilgrim vs. The World and Wizorb) now requires some help crafting the actual game, for which it's launched a Kickstarter drive.
The Kickstarter goal is $75,000, but Tribute is hoping to raise $200,000 or more, at which point it'll be able to include more content, including four-player online co-op, additional missions, weapons, character customizations, and more things to have more of.
Rewards include copies of the game (and Tribute's previous game, Wizorb), beta access, t-shirts, hoodies designed by Scott Pilgrim creator Bryan Lee O'Malley, and more extravagant goals like being drawn into the game as a hostage by animator Paul Robertson.
