Phosphor Games is raising money directly for Project Awakened

Phosphor Games has launched its own funding drive to develop its open-world superhero action game Project Awakened.

Polygon reported earlier this month that the developer had plans to host its own fundraiser after the project fell short of its $500,000 Kickstarter goal.

At the time of writing, the Phosphor Games campaign boasts 652 backers pledging a total of $39,566. The campaign has 38 days left to reach the $210,434 goal.

There are eight funding goals in the campaign's lifespan. The first is $250,000 and consists of create-a-player feature where players can tweak characters abilities, clothes and AI. It will also have different environment set-ups to test out characters.

The $400,000 and $450,000 goals will bring Project Awakened to Linux and Mac, respectively. The $500,000 mark will bring the release date forward from the end of 2014 to June, 2014. The final funding goal, which is set at $1.5 million, will introduce Unreal Engine 4 support.
