You may remember a few months back when we talked to Canadian developers Gigatross Games about their upcoming XBL Indie Games title, Grand Class Melee, a top-down Zelda-meets-Bomberman multiplayer action-game.
After a successful release on XBL, earning a place as one of the top-rated Indie Games, we’ve recently learned that the trio is hard at work on a direct, even more ambitious follow-up, Grand Class Melee 2. This time, however, they’re taking the multiplayer online and extending their reach to the PC platform.
Check out Grand Class Melee on XBL.
To help make Grand Class Melee 2 the “best-in-class” XBL and PC multiplayer title, Gigatross Games has started an indiegogo campaign in order to muster up the funds to bring this exciting project to a reality. What will these funds contribute to? Gigatross explains:
- Keep us working on GCM2 full-time. In order for the game to be the best it can be, it deserves our full attention.
- Fund the game servers, bandwidth and hardware required. If we exceed our funding goal, we will consider expanding to more platforms!
- Broaden the artistic scope of the game. The more funds we raise, the more energy we can devote to really polishing the look of GCM2 with improved class sprites, backgrounds, spells and other effects.
