This game is downright amazing; I say that this is a Kickstarter that needs more attention and funding. The game is Ravaged by 2Dawn Games. The best way to explain this project is “Mad Max meets Battlefield”, a game where the focus is purely on having a blast. Something a few games this generation have forgone in their attempt to cling to certain trends or taglines. This game isn’t about “innovation” or “realism” or just being “beautiful”, it’s about the thing that matters most plain old fun.
These guys have already done a ton on this game, it’s already in a playable state, they just need a bit more money to:
- Finalize marketing and publishing material for Steam
- Finish production of the game trailer
- Set up beta testing equipment
- Develop more vehicles and weapons
- Add finishing touches to gameplay and levels
It’s hard for me not to support games like this, it ensures product purity. When you give support directly to developers like this, it makes the games better for EVERYONE since they have total freedom to develop the game in a way that publishers sometimes interfere with. We, as gamers, can then get games from actual gamers, and not people who look at statistics and trends to determine how a game will sell.

Once again, this is a chance to help the industry get a bit more variety. I can’t count how often I see gamers complaining about genres being stale, and their being no new experiences. 40 Days to get the rest of the funding, tons of time remaining.
