It has been fully funded and has reached four additional stretch goals, raising $81,188 total after an initial goal of $45,384.
The Kickstarter went live early last month and the developers are looking at a 2020 release for the game on PC VR headsets. David went hands-on with an early access version of the game just before the Kickstarter launched. That build centered around exploring the dystopian, cyberpunk-themed city of the game, both on foot and in your air car, which lets you fly around in a Blade Runner-esque manner.
The game also surpassed its funding goal by a large margin, opening up the possibility of reaching several stretch goals. The first three of those included a next-gen PSVR port, licensed music and a new “wastelands” area of the city. However, the Kickstarter also just recently surpassed the fourth stretch goal, which unlocked a cyber-wolf companion.
The video above, posted alongside an update to the Kickstarter, shows off an in-game model of said cyber-wolf, which looks pretty slick but also a little bit creepy. The campaign update describes the cyber-wolf as “a tamable pet and loyal companion. You can fight crime together, cause trouble, or just play fetch if that’s what you want to do.”
According to the campaign’s FAQ, pledge rewards will be issued after the end of the campaign, so any backers can hopefully expect those tiered rewards to come through soon.
