EdenIndustries, a Canadian indie studio that consists of developers who have worked on games like Luigi's Mansion: Dark Moon, Guacamelee and Waveform, launched a Kickstarter campaign today to help it finish its comedy role-playing game, Citizens of Earth.
The game, of which there is already a playable demo, puts the player in the role of Vice President of the World. Players will have to recruit ordinary citizens into their party, each with special skills based on their stereotypical roles within society. Some of the kinds of characters the player will be able to recruit include the town barista, the local baker, school teachers, yoga instructors and, of course, your mom.
The player's party will travel around the world map under the Vice President's guidance to help him save the world by fighting off anything that could potentially be a threat to the peace, like sentient coffee plants, obese tanks and over-enthusiastic tourists.
EdenIndustries has a Kickstarter funding goal of $100,000 with 29 days to go.
