Just noticed this offering on Kickstarter: https://www.kickstarter.com/project...me?ref=section-homepage-featured-project

Quote
Embark on a breathtaking journey into the wild.

Coming to PC and PlayStation 4, AWAY: The Survival Series is a high-flying adventure that brings nature documentaries to life.

Playing as the tiny Sugar Glider, the game is set in a distant future where the animal kingdom reigns supreme. From the mighty treetops to the forest floor, immerse yourself in nature as you explore a vibrant world brimming with life, but beware of the dangers that await on your adventures…


It looks like they have the prototype up on Steam.

It's already fully funded with 6 days to go but has the usual risks of any Kickstarter.

Thought this forum in particular would get a kick out of this. I'm actually thinking about buying a PS4 just to play this.

So I was scanning through youtube and saw this little gem, saw it had a Kickstarter and thought I'd share it with everyone.

It is too bad that the glider isn't more realistic.

I chalked it up to 'being sent in the distant future' & being a cool-looking evolution. I think Arthur could rock the mohawk...

Since we have two threads dealing with the same subject (this Kickstarter campaign), would it be possible for you almighty admin types to combine them into one?

I hope it works well. I am terrible at these types of games because I have a terrible sense of direction. My glider would run in circles. It is also hard to make a game like this work because of the view. In games like this peripheral vision could make a huge difference. Part of me thinks it would be better as a VR game. I am also a little concerned about the objective. Sounds like your goal is to get somewhere or find something. Not sure how well that can sustain interest.

I would prefer a sugar glider simulator where you either run a colony or are part of one trying to achieve dominance while also cooperating.
