Buenos Aires based IO Game Studio launches today a crowdfunding campaign to fund their first game, Metal Reborn, a sci-fi shooter set in a post-apocalyptic Earth after a meteorite almost destroyed our planet.


Metal Reborn is an action video game, planned for PC, that plays as a shooter, either in third person or first person perspective, and it features vehicular combat and a huge arsenal of weapons. IO Game Studio has set a funding goal of USD $15,000, 50% of which will be distributed to fund environments and characters. 

Metal Reborn features AAA visuals for its open-world, non-linear environments that players will explore to engage in more than 30 missions. Characters are based on real life models, created using Motion Capture and Photometry, techniques that are rarely seen in games developed by small teams. 

The economic situation of our country makes it very difficult for small studios to keep up to date in technology, such as software for modelling and texturing, and hardware updates to work with that software. We already invest a lot in this project and need your help so we can finish it.” Says Damián Pomponio, lead director of the project. 

Backers can support Metal Reborn from USD $1 to a maximum of USD $4000. Future updates of the campaign will feature soundtrack previews and more insight into the developer process. 

Metal Reborn is coming to PC. Follow Facebook and Twitter for more information and weekly updates.
