Red Republic Games has been doing rather well over on Kickstarter. They’ve made their goal and should be at 200% funded soon (if not already by the time you read this). They’ve unlocked a bunch of good stuff along the way.
From the update:
In the past three days, Red Republic Games and their project Arena Rex has been extremely successful. To date, the project has been funded and three stretch goals have been surpassed, unlocking several amazing new models, including Septimus and Nero (A wicked pairing of man and beast, Septimus and Nero are united in purpose on the sands. Only the most willful daredevil could survive such a mass of muscle and rage as Nero, let alone direct him. Septimus embraces the bull’s violent charges and unpredictability to strike viciously at those who escape being gored by his steed. It is hard to say whether the man or the bull has more kills in the arena, but their shared thirst for the razor-edged chaos of battle ensures the unspoken competition between them will continue); Noxius ( A captive too unruly for slavery and condemned to death in the arena, this man bears no name to speak of, and no tongue to speak it. He makes do with minimal equipment granted only for the sake of spectacle, and continues to survive despite terrible odds.); and Leo (Known for savaging not only arena combatants, but feeders and handlers, Leo has slain hundreds on the sands, and dozens in his pen. This king of beasts lives up to his reputation in every outing, satiating the crowd’s bloodlust while he feasts on his kills.) Next up, the lovely Ban-Luca.
