Ex-Tropico Game Designer Ivelin G. Ivanov’s Kickstarter campaign for Grimm Forset, a co-op survival game set in the Brothers Grimm universe begins tomorrow.
Ivelin, who worked on both Tropico 3 and 4, and also has Sacred 2, X3: Reunion and X Rebirth amongst his list of credits co-founded the studio Big Mustache Games together with his ex-Imperia Online colleague Alexander Torofiev, a bestselling gamebook author, producer and lead game designer of the award-winning mobile strategy game Seasons of War.
“Our main goal is to create a truly, unique, immersive and deeply fulfilling experience, rather than “just another game”, so hopefully that will be clearly readable in our KS presentation,” explains Ivanov whose Grimm Forest Kickstarter campaign launches November 15th.
Grimm Forest is a standalone multiplayer co-op PC title that combines elements of strategy, tactics and exploration. The social dynamics is at the core of the game – small groups of people (around 25 players) will have to communicate, time and coordinate their actions towards one common goal – to survive, day in and day out. Their enemy is the cursed forest around them with all of its horrors. Each day the players build up, repair and develop their village. Each night they fight to push back the next attack of the vile creatures, common and magical, that live “next door”.
