I know we’ve got lots of sandbox fans around here (Minecraft and Rift Dimension addicts, I’m looking at you), so I thought I’d share something new from one of our own! Some of you may remember Klyse from WoW. He’s been a game developer for a long time and last year he started a new career with a rather interesting start-up company called Nerd Kingdom.
Nerd Kingdom is currently developing what could prove to be an addictive and innovative sandbox RPG called TUG. TUG has it’s own Kickstarter Campaign that launched today and gives you an opportunity to support independent game development and get in on the ground floor.
TUG sits at the crossroads where survival sandbox and multiplayer RPG’s meet, offering both elegant simplicity and a world of complex secrets for those who desire to seek them out. From freezing snow capped mountains to dark dreary caves, TUG offers a massive procedurally-generated world to explore, full of mystery and danger — but what makes TUG truly unique is its ability to help us learn what you as players enjoy about the game, and to use your interactions to make an amazing world even better.
The project draws inspiration from fun, accessible games we love such as Minecraft, Fable, Animal Crossing, and Zelda, as well as games that feature deeply complex worlds, including Eve Online, Monster Hunter, and Dwarf Fortress.
