    Story

    Prometheus Wept is a turn based RPG set on a near-future earth where the majority of our digital technology and digitally stored information has been destroyed. The game offers hardcore squad-level combat, with simultaneous battles between cyberspace and the physical world, meaningful choices, deep character progression and an advanced crafting system.

    It also has the distinction of likely being the only game where you can incapacitate an enemy by dropping a shark on them! Prometheus Wept is the third game by Timeslip Softworks and is available for Windows, Mac and Linux.

    DEMO from Indie DB

    The goal is to create a relatively short, 10-16 hour experience, with an emphasis on design, variety, story-telling and quality over quantity.

    €7443 likely seems a small amount to ask for a project of this scope.

    A key factor is that Prometheus Wept uses the code from Vigilantes as a foundation to build upon. There's one full time developer, working with artists on a part time basis. Further, multiple funding sources have been used in the creation of Prometheus Wept, including a grant from Creative Europe, sales from two previous games, and personal savings. This campaign will provide enough funding to complete the game.

    The reason I settled on exactly €7443 is that it's the amount raised in the Vigilantes Kickstarter, 5 years ago. The successful completion of the campaign, though it may not seem a big deal, was a huge turning point. After 4 years of long hours and dealing with uncertainty, it was the first time it felt like the adventure in game development might just work out.
