Kickstarter, Greenlight Launched for Dark Matter
Posted by Adam Larck on 06.18.2013





InterWave Studios has launced a Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight for the final phase of their Metroidvania PC title, Dark Matter.

The goal, £50,000, is to help the studio polish the game a bit more before release.

"We could release Dark Matter right now in its beta form, but there is a level of polish and some necessary tweaking to gameplay mechanics required in order to ensure the game provides people with an exceptional, fun and intense experience," said Igor Raffaele, general manager of InterWave Studios. "The funding will provide us with the additional two months we need to complete Dark Matter. At the same time, we are looking to publish Dark Matter via Steam Greenlight's system that uses their community to pick upcoming new games."

The title, a sci-fi/horror/adventure game, will put gamers on the Endeavor as Ensign, a female crew member that awakes from cryosleep. The ship is infested with parasites that must be taken care of to allow her to get home safely.

As part of the Kickstarter, certain levels will be able to get immediate access to the beta of the game that's available.

"As part of the Kickstarter campaign, we are going to do something truly unprecedented by granting our higher level backers access to Dark Matter's beta version during the campaign so that they can help dictate the game's development by providing feedback to us directly via our forums and one-on-one meetings," Raffaele said. "With our backers' feedback and support, our goal is to create the type of game we want to play rather than the type of game big studios would force on players.

"Big publishers would normally ignore smaller games with lower profit margins like Dark Matter, but we are an independent studio, so we don't have to sell millions of games in order to be successful. We don't have to appease shareholders. We only have to make our fans happy. It is this philosophy that allows us to create games like Dark Matter and we look forward to sharing it with everyone."

You can see a trailer of the game in action below.
