New indie game company, Forgemachine, has recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund their pioneer project, Thanataria: Rise of the Fallen, a fantasy based RPG. Forgemachine invites players to unravel the mystery of their own death, while journeying through Thanataria to discover the origin of the curse keeping them alive.

The company has opened the opportunity for backers to get involved in the creative process behind the game. The producer and director of the project, Matthew Smead, expresses his desire to give contributors a hands on experience saying, “We want to design a game that is fun and exciting for the player-that includes taking player input and finding a way to integrate it into the game.” The director also made it clear that they’ll uphold the immersion of the world and the story as backers add in their own spice to the mix by working with each individual to blend their ideas together in a cohesive way.

“We’ve already done that with the character, Serenity, whose background was written by our lead artist,” says Tiffany Smead, marketing manager and editor at Forgemachine. “Initially, the character didn’t fit the current era for her origin. Later, we not only found a way to fit her in, but her background added another layer of depth to both the world and the character because of the conflict.” She concluded, “It’s a challenge, but one we look forward to as writers and developers.”

The campaign has varying types of creative backer levels ranging from simply naming NPCs and/or towns to designing an Easter egg quest apart from the main storyline. Other “rewards” include writing an in game engraved memorial (which can be for a character or to honor a loved one), designing a rare item, and even molding character concepts with the team. These openings are limited and being offered up through the campaign ending midday on the tenth of July.
