The developer 'SolarFall Games' must be overwhelmed today as they have announced that not only is their open world RPG of 'Umbra' a Kickstarter and Steam Greenlight success, but they have smashed their Kickstarter goal with an incredible $406,979 - 181% funded. As such it is now the highest grossing Kickstarter campaign, for a videogame, from France to date! Umbra is powered by CryEngine 3 and blends the hack and slash game play with state of the art graphics and truly modern AI inspired by the hit classic Diablo 2.
"We are absolutely flabbergasted at funding to such an incredible total on Kickstarter. We'd like to thank every backer for their pledge, support and the sharing of our campaign, every YouTube & Twitch streamer who covered our prototype and all of the journalists for writing such awesome articles about Umbra." said Daniel Dolui, Lead Programmer and Game Director at SolarFall Games. "We would like to invite those of you who were unable to pledge on our campaign, to check out our webstore and now, we have promises to keep and work to do!"
All funds collected via the Umbra webstore will continue to go towards the further stretch goals that were not achieved during the Kickstarter campaign!
