Sirlin Games has launched a Fig crowdfunding campaign for Fantasy Strike, its “radically accessible” fighting game for PlayStation 4 and PC from Street Fighter II Turbo HD Remix designer David Sirlin. The game is seeking $500,000 in funding for release in late 2018.
Backers who fund the project at the Deluxe tier ($49) or higher will receive access to the PC version in August, months before it becomes available on Steam Early Access.
Here’s an update on the game’s current development status:
Fantasy Strike has been in development for two years. The team has cultivated the game’s cell-shaded look and labored over the integration of GGPO networking, the best-in-class form of online play in fighting games. Fantasy Strike currently features eight characters and four stages, with more on the way. Arcade, local versus, online play, and training mode will be playable immediately following the Fig campaign, with numerous additional gameplay modes planned for the game’s full release.
