London 27 January 2014

Kiss Ltd is extremely proud to announce that their first Kickstarter Project ‘PROJECT NIMBUS’ not only reached its £6,000 fund raising target on Kickstarter, but exceeded it by a massive 295%.  In total, the game attracted pledges of £17,690.

Developed by Thai based indie studio ‘GameCrafterTeam’, PROJECT NIMBUS is a free fly, high speed mech action game set in a post-apocalyptic world.  Players control huge humanoid battle suits called ‘BattleFrames’, which are armed with an arsenal of weapons including GUNS, cannons, GUNS, missiles, GUNS, lasers, GUNS, drones and …more GUNS! Fight armies of hostiles, battle against colossal opponents and save the world!  Phew…!! 

As a result of the Kickstarter campaign, gamers will now be able to expect:

A PC version

A Mac Version

Machinima cutscenes

Sandbox Mode

Oculus Rift Support + First Person HUD View

Survival mode

Extended story campaign (more side characters' missions and a more in-depth Spetnaz story)

Darryl Still, CEO at Kiss commented “On behalf GameCrafterTeam (the developer) and everyone at Kiss, I would like to thank everyone who has pledged.  Your amazing support is quite humbling and will allow us to deliver a truly amazing gaming experience”. 

Over the course of the next week or so, Kiss and the GameCrafterTeam will be reviewing the PROJECT NIMBUS development schedule in light of the Kickstarter funding and will issue an announcement as to when the game is likely to be released.  At the same time, GameCrafterTeam will be reaching out to all pledgers with information regarding the reward they have qualified for.
