Failsafe, a first-person, parkour-focused adventure, is seeking funds on Kickstarter. In addition to financial goals, the campaign also brings with it a deeper sense of how the game will look and play.
The debut title from indie studio Game Over, Failsafe features the voices of Life is Strange actress Ashly Burch and Avatar: The Last Airbender's Dante Basco. The game follows Isra (Burch) and robot companion XJ (Basco), as Isra accompanies her uncle on a journey outside of their village. The developer describes it as playing "like the better parts of Mirror's Edge," while drawing inspirations from Journey and Hayao Miyazaki's storytelling. In gameplay videos, the Mirror's Edge inspiration can be heavily seen as Isra runs and tumbles through the game's world in a first-person perspective. Check out the video below to see it in action.
Game Over is seeking $80,000 to complete the title, with backer tiers beginning at $5 and extending to $1,500. Failsafe is being developed for Linux, Mac and Windows PC, as well as PlayStation 4 and Xbox One "pending console arrangements," with a completion window of summer 2016. The Kickstarter campaign ends Dec. 1.
