Ink Stains Games have launched a Kickstarter campaign for their top-down shooter, 12 is Better Than 6.
North America, 1873, is a lawless, cruel land. A wrongly incarcerated man is attempting to escape prison to wreak havoc on those who sought to do wrong against him and exact his revenge.
12 is Better Than 6 was approved on Steam Greenlight in only four days. The team have now taken the game to Kickstarter to try and secure the £15,000 funding needed to complete development. To help make this happen, there is a special Crazy Early Bird tier where backers who act fast can pledge to get the game for just £2($3).
[quote by=”Anton Grischenko, lead programmer at Ink Stains Games”]Bringing 12 is Better Than 6 to Kickstarter is going to be an exciting journey for us!. Our game’s a lovingly crafted homage to the Western movies and action games that we grew up with, and we’re keen to share our passion with our fans and backers.[/quote]
To be judged by 12 means that you get to go to court, where you’ll be judged by a jury of 12 people who will ultimately decide upon your fate.
To be carried by 6 is to be dead, as it is common for 6 people to carry a coffin to and from the hearse.
So in 12 is Better Than 6 the hero would rather kill someone and go to jail for it than be killed and have to be buried.
- Unique shooting mechanics – you will need to cock the revolver after each shot
- Challenging difficulty – player’s reflexes and abilities will be tested to the limit. Bullets are deadly, and enemies rarely miss
- Hand-drawn visuals – drawn by hand on pen and paper, to provide a truly unique visual experience
- Choose your play style – stealth or all guns blazing, it’s up to you
- Authenticity – the game is set in real places, complete with sleazy saloons, Native American colonies, and traveling caravans
- Weaponry – only the greatest weapons of the period are used in game. Winchesters, revolvers, double barreled-shotguns and even Gatling guns
