For this week’s Switch Kickstarter Project of the Week, we will be looking at Starsoft’s Savior. The game is slated to release in October 2022 on PC with a Nintendo Switch as a stretch goal. Here’s the game’s overview:
Savior is an open-world, action-adventure platformer, centered on rebuilding the divided planet of Arcadia. You’ll be empowered to save the people you discover from problems like hunger, superstition, tyranny and destruction. As you help the Arcadians regain their lives and thrive, you’ll earn experience, abilities, powerful tools and allies to aid you in your quest.
You play as Sam, a stranger with no possessions or memory. As you explore, you’ll learn of your origin and place among the characters you encounter. Battle, evade and persuade your enemies to join you in rebuilding a broken world.
The Chosen people of Arcadia have lived under the brilliance of The Daystar for a thousand years. Appearing as a star that shines day and night; it is their guide, their law giver, their god. It delivered to them, The Holy Creed.
The Creed dictates all areas of Arcadian life, especially the punishment for doubting the Daystar, or challenging its law. All who stand opposed to The Creed are to be banished; dropped into the depths of the planet. They are returned to the darkness, where their doubt arose, so sayeth The Creed.
But The Fallen survived their banishment. They explored their new underground home and unlocked unimagined secrets. Their curiosity condemned them, but beyond The Creed it was their most powerful tool. With it, they built the free city of Bastion and thrived.
Savior begins at a turning point in the paths of The Chosen and The Fallen. A catastrophe has befallen the city of Bastion. Sam, as a mysterious outsider with hidden power, may be the only one who can save this lost world.
Savior requires $48,000USD and is currently sitting at $27,632 after 805 backers with 25 days remaining. However, in order to guarantee a Nintendo Switch port, the project requires $70,000USD.
