TUG by Nerd Kingdom

If you back only one Kickstarter this year – let it be TUG (The Untitled Game) by Nerd Kingdom.

TUG is a multiplayer open-world sandbox-RPG using new technology and social sciences to directly involve players in the game’s design.

Here’s the latest video showing off the lighting and physics:

As of this morning, TUG is currently sitting at just under $125,000 with a goal of $215,000 by May 31, 2013.

I backed this at the $75 level which gets me –

  • 3 game copies (1 for myself and two that I can give to friends) with access to the alpha and beta versions of the game
  • Kickstarter Exclusive – Baby Sabre Tiger Companion Critter
  • Kickstarter Exclusive – Rare Beast Pelt for your character to wear
  • Sticker, t-shirt, poster, digital book of TUG artwork, and other assorted digital and forum goodies

You can back this for just $10 which will get you a downloadable copy of the game when it is completed – rough estimate is January 2015 for that. The reason I backed at the $75 level is that I wanted multiple copies of the game so I could play with my son. It’s just a bonus that we will also have access to the alpha and beta stages of the game. I really hope this gets funded. Alpha access starts this summer with Beta slated for January 2014.
