Aubrey Serr of 12 East Games has launched a crowdfunding campaign on Fig for her new video game Trackless. The project was launched this week and quickly secured half of its funding target of $20,000 in less than 24 hours. Trackless is described as an atmospheric first-person exploration and puzzle game that is set in the distant future. It was notably inspired by various classic games, which includes Zork, Shadowgate, and King’s Quest.
“In the game, you play as a Seeker, someone who has decided to take a journey into the mountains to attempt a series of trials that, if completed, will lead you to a monolith called The Object. No one knows what The Object is or where it came from, but clues exist surrounding this intractable mystery.”
To earn currency, which helps purchase upgrades and gain access to new areas, players must explore locations and solve puzzles. Their in-game phone will help them find clues and give them special abilities. In addition to the interesting story, the game will come with an original soundtrack done by MAKEUP AND VANITY SET.
Trackless is currently available starting at $10. Backers of the campaign will receive other rewards, including the original soundtrack, t-shirt sets, phone themes, digital art book, and unique artwork prints. While revealing why she decided to use the crowdfunding method for the game, Serr previously stated:
“Crowdfunding makes a lot of sense for us, since it simultaneously grants us the ability to raise funds for polishing and shaping our game, while at the same time helping get the word out. We’re excited that Fig is helping us with the campaign and will continue to help us even once the funding is done.”
The campaign is set to close on November 17th.
