Sui Generis is an RPG looking at getting crowd-funded through Kickstarter at the moment. It’s a good looking game, especially for an indie title, but what’s got people talking is the combat system. The following video will show you exactly what I mean: it’s a very realistic and weighty system. Combat feels heavy, blows knock the player back a realistic distance, things like that. When I read that it was full of ragdolling, I imagined flailing limbs and flying bodies all over the place, but when that ogre knocks you down, it feels very real, and looks very tight.
You really have to watch the trailer to see what I mean, it’s difficult to put into words. But once you watch the video, do go and check out their Kickstarter as it’s not doing so hot at the moment. With 10 days to go, it’s got about £62,000 of its £150,000 goal, as PCGamesN points out, it would be great to see just the development tools be released to see what the modding community could do.
So do pledge, if it sounds like something you could get into. Watch their pitch video, read the story, and watch the combat video below. And remember, you won’t actually be charged any money if the game doesn’t reach it’s goal, so don’t be shy if you’d like to see this one make it.
