Project Awakened Kickstarter needs a hero

The sky is the limit for Project Awakened, but its Kickstarter campaign is still a bit too earthbound. The open-world build-your-own-hero game is at $212,000 out of its $500,000 goal, with just four days to go.

Phosphor Games, best known for iOS action-adventure Horn, has been working on the game off-and-on for years. The effort shows in the fairly polished prototype videos which pepper its Kickstarter page, but to begin full-time development the studio needs a significant cash infusion.

Whether the campaign is successful or not, we'll be interested to see what Phosphor does with the ambitious concept down the line.
