Those who are into their indie games will know that any game created by students at the DigiPen Institute of Technology is worth checking out.
This Washington college churns out super-developers by the bucketload, who produce games that seriously push the envelope in terms of innovation and depth.
A group of three DigiPen students - Dane Curbow, Erik Foss, and Bret Linne - has launched a Kickstarter funding project for a new iOS strategy game with a steampunk setting. It's called Touch Tactics Project, and it's the first out-of-school title from the trio, who have just established their own studio.
Touch Tactics Project is a 3D turn-based game, featuring a single-player mission-based campaign, and online competitive and co-operative multiplayer modes. Up to four players battle it out in tile-based action on 3D terrains, with strategic positioning key to the conflicts.
The team has been inspired by Nintendo's Advance Wars - as is evident from the concept art on the Kickstarter page - so that's something to get truly excited about.
For more details on the game, and to pledge some money if you so wish, head over to Kickstarter.
