TeamPixel, an independent web development and design studio, has launched an IndieGoGo campaign (via VG247) to gather funds for acquiring and continuing the Homeworld property from THQ after the company was fragmented and sold off at auction earlier this week. The drive lasts for 14 days and asks for $50,000 to “preserve access to one of the major landmarks in sci-fi and RTS gaming for fans both old and new.”
As an “interactive media company specializing in web design, web development, desktop software, and mobile applications,” teamPixel seems like an odd choice for an organization spearheading an effort to get hold of a venerable strategy franchise. The studio claims entering the games industry has always been its goal, and it believes the few small games it developed for local companies is proof enough of its dedication.
