Digitilus re-launched its Kickstarter
project for Skyjacker
, a "first-person, free-roaming space combat simulator." The developer is seeking $150,000 by November 22 to fund the space-faring game.
puts players in the role of a space pirate, completing story campaign missions and looting convoys from the game's 10 alien civilizations, upgrading their piecemeal ships along the way. The PC, Mac and Linux game features co-op play, so friends can join in on the space combat campaigns, as well as session-based competitive multiplayer modes such as team deathmatch and capture the flag. Digitilus crafted a mission creation toolset for players to use as well, offering the ability to draw up game scenarios for others to play.
While Digitilus successfully raised $36,131 for its Starship Constructor
app in January
, the full game saw one failed crowdfunding campaign conclude in July 2012
, and another cancelled in May 2012
. Both of those campaigns had $200,000 goals, one of which rallied $128,238 in support, so the developer's lowered expectations this time around may prove fruitful.
