Sentinel Games is getting closer to their funding goal for Total Extinction. To help entice you, they’re showing off more preview concept artwork.
I used to have the G.I. Joe version of this plane when I was younger.


From the preview:

And we cannot make an update without more designs, this time of the Regulatory Corporation: A12 Viper – attack aircraft

I was born at a very young age. I plan on living forever. So far, so good.

    This thing is so close, but plateau’d horribly. I would love to see this succeed, there’s some fantastic wargaming ideas in there.

      What are those? Looking it over briefly, it appears to be AT-43 melded with Rogue Trader. Not that either of those games were devoid of ideas, but I don’t know that they need to be rehashed.

      Again, I didn’t study it too deeply, and my question is in earnest.

    I’m not convinced it is that close really. They are close to the KS target, but I suspect it is one of those targets set deliberately low in order to get into stretch goals early on. Just based on I can’t see them making a game with all the production for just $30k.

    I rather fear this will be quietly pulled by the company in a couple of weeks. Only to be relaunched as another KS in the new year…

    I really like the art direction on this campaign. Has a bit of an AT43 vibe. I think it is just a case of running the campaign along with too many other big campaigns going on, and not running the campaign in USD.

      I don’t disagree, but I find it funny that a non USD campaign struggles. I’m in the US, I can do basic math, and the KS even does the basic math for you. It’s a weird quirk of crowdfunding.

      • Gallahad

        I think part of the reason is that it pushes currency risk onto the backers, and we have been spoiled by not being required to pay shipping on most major campaigns. Many people see the non USD campaign, and rightly assume it means they will pay shipping, and have to deal with the import duties, etc. headache, along with the risk of currency fluctuations.

    looks like HALO meets Gears of War with some other common tropes.. If Battle Systems and Reaper hadn’t taken my money these guys might have. It’d be nice to see a prototype (lots of images but I think everything on the home page is a rendering). I hope they do make another attempt at this if they don’t make it. The vehicles in particular are something I am interested in.
