It’s unfortunate that a labor of love often requires a bigger investment than just time, effort and the passion that inspired it. For instance, take Chivalry: Medieval Warfare. We’ve covered the ambitious indie project a couple of times in the recent past and now the game- on the precipice of completion- has set up a Kickstarter give the devs the final financial slack they need to step forward. Here’s the video of their pitch to distract you from how terribly mixed my metaphor was:
While Chivalry is not the only medieval combat game coming up, it does have a different enough approach that make it worth looking at. I think the project is important as it also explores FPS combat that consists of more than just gunplay. As a fan of Zeno Clash’s enjoyable (but sometimes broken) combat, I’ve been eager to see someone do melee right.
