John Romero Seeks Funding For Old-School RPG
Filed under: CRPG, RPG, JOHN ROMERO, LOOT DROP
Loot Drop is asking for funding for an old-school role-playing game via Kickstarter. Loot Drop is a development studio formed by John Romero and Tom Hall.

So far, they've described the game as "a classic RPG from the days when RPGs were king," which is being designed by Hall (responsible for games like Anachronox) and Brenda Brathwaite (Wizardry).

Here's a bit more about the game:

  • Exploration: Explore a richly detailed world, home to unique, dangerous and sometimes crafty creatures who may be friend or foe.
  • Treasure: Loot castles, caverns and dungeons and defeat hordes of creatures in a world where your skill and cunning are key.
  • NPCs: At least five known NPC races call this world home. Forge alliances with them and do their bidding - or be their undoing.
  • Quests: Solve hundreds of quests on your way to discovering and uncovering the secrets of the world.
  • Multiple Endings: The smallest of intentions sometimes matters far more than you know. It is a world alive with memories. Multiple Beginnings (Stretch Goal): The endings in one game affect the beginnings in another. Import your characters from one world to another.
  • Combat: Turn-based combat harkens back to the days when spells and swords hit hard and last-second healing spells saved the day.
  • NPC Enemies (Stretch Goal): What once was a relatively peaceful world becomes much more dangerous not only for you, but for those who live there. New NPCs come complete with an expanded game area and quests.

Thanks Blue, for the heads-up.

John Romero !? That guy is too overrated by the fanboys. Whatever respect I had for him in the early and mid 90s faded away with the years.

Calling it "Loot Drop" sounds like a blatantly disingenuous attempt to cash in from the Diablo/Torchlight crowd.

The man is a clown.

$98,015 in 1 day? They shouldnt have trouble getting their goals, seeing as Project Eternity has doubled their goal and still have 13 days to go

Actually, it's going somewhat slow compared to Project Eternity and Double Fine Adventure.

That's all I have to say.
